Turks and Caicos Islands is a lovers paradise.
There is romance oozing from every corner of these most dazzling and sublime islands.
It’s in the sweet, fragrant smell of the purple, pink and fuschia bougainvillea that populate the islands, it’s in the spray of sea mist that hits your face, it’s in the warm silky white sands and sparkling turquoise waters that create an almost mystical back drop to every ocean view you are afforded.
It’s in the clink of the glasses and the sound of light laughter as you have cocktails next to the ocean under an incredibly starry night.
It’s in the way the candlelight lovingly caresses your lover’s face making you want them more and more by the minute.
Indeed, it’s a walk down a secluded beach under a blissfully starry night that can rekindle the fire, the spark, the love, the passion of any romance and it’s why many a tourist or visitor comes to the Turks for weddings, a honeymoon, an anniversary or a romantic interlude.
So, should romance truly be on your mind these days, there is no better time to visit the Turks and Caicos than for Valentine’s Day. Spending the day pampering your sweetheart and falling in love all over again, amidst the views of Caribbean perfection, is the ultimate way to romance your lover.
And we suggest that you start early…….
Rise and shine to a light, fruity breakfast of Caribbean delights such as mango, pineapple and papaya.
Then, find a secluded corner on famous Grace Bay Beach for a lover’s stroll. Take in the gorgeous panoramic views and let the warm Caribbean waters gently caress your feet….. .but be sure and head back in time for……
First, fly high above it all with a helicopter tour of the Turks and Caicos Island chain. Delight in the stunning views as you soar over brightly-colored coral reefs, white, sandy beaches, cays, islets and lush green mangroves. Flying at that high of an altitude has been called “exhilarating,” “stunning,” and
“unparalleled” by other happy tourists. The picturesque views from high above will not soon be forgotten, and be sure to bring your camera to capture some incredible aerial views of paradise.
Next, it’s time to unwind and get ready for your fancy night out on the town.
Relax and rejuvenate together with the Double Decadence Romantic Couples Massage provided by Spa Tropique. Let the aromatic floral scents of sweet mango passion fruit, sun-kissed water lily and papaya-pineapple creme fraiche soothe, nourish and detoxify your skin and senses. Revel in the delights of being pampered and attended to.
Then, wrap yourselves in plush terry-cloth robes and meet out on the balcony. Indulge in gourmet chocolates and wine as you watch the sun set over the ocean in the privacy of your own walled-off patio area.
Now that it’s dark it’s time for…….
For an exceptional culinary experience, dine at Anacaona, an elegant and sophisticated gourmet restaurant right on the beach. Anacaona is a Lucayan Indian word meaning Flower of Gold, and indeed its food has been compared to ambrosia……or nectar of the Gods. For a true taste of the Caribbean try the divine Cognac Scented Lobster Soup or the succulent Grace Bay Paella with Mahi Mahi and Tiger Prawn. Finish everything off with the sinful Baked Chocolate Mousse with Marinated Strawberry and Peppermint Ice Cream.
Pleasantly satiated, walk arm-in-arm under a blissfully starry night to Plunge for cocktails. Hopefully you’ve remembered to wear your swimsuits underneath your evening wear, as you will be drinking cocktails in the in-water seating booths of the Serpentine infinity pool.
After this final incredible chapter of the day, cuddle in each other’s arms, gaze longingly into one another’s eyes and re-ignite the fire and passion that brought you together in the first place. Today you have created memories that will last a lifetime, so continue to enjoy each other’s company in the privacy of your very own luxury suite.
