We’ve all heard the phrase, “What girl doesn’t want to be a princess on her wedding day?” If that’s the case, then it’s only fair that she be treated like a queen on her honeymoon. Saba is an island in the remote Dutch Caribbean Islands and is known as the “Unspoiled Queen.” With no major airports or cruise ports and located 28 miles from St. Maarten, Saba goes unnoticed by mass tourism and is known for its pristine condition.
Smack dab in the middle of the rainforest and surround by sea on all sides is the Queen’s Gardens Resort. The resort offers the island’s only 5-star accommodations and is propped at 1,200 feet above sea level, giving panoramic views that will melt your heart.
The resort’s five-night Honeymoon Package Royal is fit for a queen and begins with a bottle of sparkling wine and wellness gift basket. The package includes Superior Suite accommodations, a private Jacuzzi and much more:
-One snorkeling trip for two
-Massage for two
-One 2-course surprise lunch
-One 4-course surprise dinner
-Airport taxi transfers
-Private sunset cruise
-Daily in-room royal breakfast
Superior Suite accommodations span an entire floor of the resort with 1,100 square feet of living space and, of course, stunning ocean panoramic views. Best of all, at Queen’s Gardens Resort there are only 12 suites – ten of which have private Jacuzzis overlooking the rainforest or sea. You can have luxury, privacy and romance starting at $420 per couple, per night with taxes included.
