Destination Honeymoons: The Island of SabaWords by Alicia Clark
Photos courtesy of Queen's Gardens Resort Since I’ve started interning at Destination I Do I’m finding out time and time again that paradise really does exist. This may seem far-fetched, but it’s easy to find your own brand of paradise, you just have to know where to look. A good place to start looking would be at Queen’s Gardens Resort nestled in the lush rainforest-covered mountains on the Caribbean island of Saba.
As can be seen on the resort’s website, this deluxe honeymoon package offers a six night stay in the Royal Suite (which comes with its own private Jacuzzi!), countless opportunities for you and your bride or groom to be pampered, a private sunset cruise and snorkeling adventure and even transportation to and from the airport.
In my book, with all of these fantastic opportunities, Queen’s Gardens Resort has already checked all the boxes for my ideal paradise vacation, and that’s not even all that this fantasy-land has to offer. What really got me excited about the Queen’s Gardens Resort Honeymoon package was their offer of a four-course meal in the Resort’s romantic Birds Nest.
The Birds Nest gives diners a 360 degree view of the island while they enjoy their meal where they can choose from a menu which contains such dishes as “cashew encrusted soft shell crab with spicy mayonnaise, home smoked duck breast over mixed greens with a Shiraz reduction, lobster Thermidor with seasoned rice and asparagus,” and so much more. These culinary creations from master chef Kevin Holland will be sure to be a highlight of your stay.
According to the resort’s website, “every element of entertainment at the Queen’s Gardens is designed to pamper the senses,” what more could you ask of the ideal island honeymoon paradise?
