When deciding where to spend their honeymoon, Tony and Isabel only had three requirements: sun, sand, and sea. To their surprise however, they were blown away when they received so much more while honeymooning at Sandals Royal Bahamian.
According to Tony, they were looking for a honeymoon destination that rivaled their Los Angeles sunset wedding set in the hills of California, and overlooking a magnificent golf course. They decided that Nassau in the Bahamas was one of the few places that could compete with their wedding location. The place they chose was Sandals Royal Bahamian—a utopia of alabaster sand beaches, tropical gardens, crystalline waters, and luxurious suites.
“This was our first time out of the country (US) together,” said Isabel. “So we definitely made the most of our first international trip together.”
Tony, a coreman in the US Navy, has traveled all around the world and said he has not experienced anything like the hospitality and service of Sandals Royal Bahamian.
“We had two butlers, an amazing ocean view room, the whole works,” Tony said. “I wanted to show my wife the time of her life.”
With the financial strain of funding an extravagant wedding, and not to mention a honeymoon in the midst of it, Tony said he was grateful for the military discount offered by Sandals Resorts. The newlyweds agreed that Sandals Royal Bahamian was the perfect place to spend their honeymoon. In fact, they have some very special advice for other newlyweds.
OUR TOP 10 RECOMMENDATIONS FOR NEWLYWEDS AT SANDALS ROYAL BAHAMIAN
1 Try the dirty bananas—one of the best drinks at the bars there!
2 The best place to snuggle (besides the bed) is during a candlelight dinner on the beach.
3 You have to experience a butler-service room, especially on a special occasion such as a honeymoon.
4 Make love facing the sunset and you will conceive…at least we did (we’re expecting our first child in early March)!
5 If venturing off the resort, you MUST try Bahamas’ famous drink, Sky Juice; it’ll knock your socks off…literally.
6 A city tour can be a blast but we had just as much fun hanging out at the resort.
7 The pool festivities are the best, so you have to experience that as a couple.
8 Café Goombay on Sandals Cay rocks!
9 Dinner at Gordon’s on the Pier is an unforgettable experience and the food is so delicious.
10 Drink all you can and just enjoy each other!
“The service we received was impeccable,” said Isabel. “We were both blown away by the special things our butlers and room attendants did for us. One evening, on our last night at the resort, my husband and I had dinner on the beach, which was AMAZING! After a nice and romantic walk on the beach after dinner, we headed back to our suite and were extremely surprised by what our butlers had done for us on our last night: the French doors to the room were closed, so my husband opened them and found a red carpet laid out with white rose petals everywhere, candles were lit, and the bed was prepared for us. Laid out on the bed was one of my lingerie pieces, which was nicely placed on my side of the bed. We thoroughly appreciated the attention to detail and all the other ‘naughty’ surprises presented! I won’t give too much away but the surprises involved towels, a flogger, fruit and chocolate. There is no doubt in my mind that we will one day return to this jewel of a resort that is perfect for newlyweds.”
