Welcome to Antigua and Barbuda, aka the twin-island country lying between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, and with enough beaches to explore a different one each day of the year!. Antigua and Barbuda have been voted the “Most Romantic Destination” by the Caribbean the World Travel Awards for four years in a row!
There is no such thing as an off season for this top destination which makes it perfect for Honeymooning all year round! Antigua and Barbuda have seen an increase in travelers which has prompted new resorts being built while others are undergoing major renovations. In 2019, Royalton Antigua Resort & Spa opened up a modern Luxury style resort. New construction is already underway for two new resorts and three new resorts will be arriving in Antigua and Barbuda in 2021.
For those adventurous travelers, Antigua and Barbuda is a one-stop-shop for crossing items off your excursion bucket list. Do everything from ziplining, swimming with stingrays, jet skiing, snorkeling or just enjoying a romantic beachside dinner for two.
PRO TIP: If you’re headed to Antigua and Barbuda, I highly recommend that you plan ahead for an epic Sunday Funday at Shirley Heights. Shirley Heights is the Caribbean’s longest-running BBQ and BIGGEST Sunset Party. Not only will you see one of the most beautiful sunsets of your life, all while overlooking the English Harbour, on Sundays, tourists and locals alike gather for a Sunday Funday that you’ll never forget!

You can also reach this beautiful island through many incredible cruise lines.. With a large range of properties to choose from, Antigua and Barbuda is a fit for just about everyone’s budget.
Top trend for Engaged Couples: Gone are the days of leaving your wedding reception and heading straight to the airport. Many Couples are putting off taking a Honeymoon as long as 6 months, or even up to a year after getting married! Let’s face it, there's no time frame set in stone for when you should actually take your Honeymoon, so do what makes sense for you and your new spouse. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with putting it off to give yourself a chance to save some extra money for that dreamy destination!
PRO TIP: If you’re one of those couples who decides to travel at a later date, plan strategically and you could maximize your savings by taking full advantage of Black Friday Travel Deals, lower deposits, and extended payment plans.
BUT, NOT SO FAST: If you decide to take your Honeymoon at a later date, please keep in mind that flights might not be open yet for your desired travel dates. Some resorts change their rates on an annual basis as well, so if you’re pricing a trip out in 2020, remember those rates may not apply in 2022.
