The Best Boutique-Style Caribbean Resorts for a Destination Wedding
Anse Chastanet, St. Lucia
Anse Chastanet in St. Lucia is one of the most romantic boutique-style Caribbean resorts. This property is home to 49 hillside rooms, featuring open-air exposure to the island’s iconic Pitons. These twin peaks are absolutely gorgeous and you can even say “I do” with them in the background on the Treehouse terrace. The Treehouse terrace wedding venue seats 20 guests. You can also wed on the resort’s private double-decker catamaran Lucky T with up to 60 guests.
Not only does this property pack the wow factor in its open-air design and artistic décor, but there is much to see and do nearby. The marine reserve near one of the resort’s two beaches has amazing snorkeling and there is an 18th-century French colonial plantation next door called Anse Mamin.
Bolongo Bay Beach Resort, St. Thomas, USVI
If you are looking for a more laid-back island vibe for your nuptials, Bolongo Bay Beach Resort offers just that. The family-owned and operated luxury resort offers a homey feel and simple elegance. The property is home to 62 ocean view rooms and 9 “value” rooms with garden views. Guests have full access to the resort’s kayaks, snorkel gear, and windsurfers.
“Romance Director” Lorie Leonard has been working with brides at Bolongo Bay since 2007. At Enchanted Honeymoons, we work with her to take care of all of the details for you. You can exchange vows on the beach under the gorgeous bamboo canopy and have your reception on the resort’s private catamaran (for up to 49 guests). They also offer many other options from fine dining at the Lobster Grille to a pig roast on the beach. Last but not least, the after-party can be held at the bar on site, Iggie’s Beach Bar & Grill, which is a St. Thomas staple in its own right.
Cap Maison, St. Lucia
Cap Maison in St. Lucia is the perfect setting for your destination wedding whether you want an intimate ceremony for two or a big bash with family and friends. Their on-site wedding planning pro, Isler, and her amazing team provide a customized experience for every couple. They have many wedding package options which your Enchanted Travel advisor can guide you through. You can even rent out the entire 49-room resort for just your party.
They offer three stunning locations including the Cliffside Gazebo, which is located in a charming garden overlooking the ocean. It is also very close to Cliff at Cop, which is an amazing location for your ceremony. This restaurant is widely regarded as the best restaurant in St. Lucia. You can also opt for romantic beachfront nuptials, steps away from The Naked Fisherman Bar and Grill. Finally, you can also book a private wedding ceremony on Rock Maison. This one offers 180-degree views of the ocean and is ideal for sunset vows.
Hotel El Convento, San Juan, Puerto Rico
If you are looking for the perfect boutique hotel to host your wedding in Puerto Rico, Hotel El Convento is a great option. This 58-room hotel is located in the heart of Old San Juan. Hotel El Convento used to be a 17th-century Carmelite nunnery and oozes old-world charm with high ceilings, thick stone walls, and walkways overlooking a five-story atrium.
El Convento has an onsite chapel with 50-foot ceilings and stained-glass windows and a courtyard that holds up to 300 guests. In addition, the hotel is conveniently located across from the oldest cathedral in the Western Hemisphere, San Juan Cathedral. San Juan is also easy to get to as a U.S. territory. San Juan has one of the Caribbean’s busiest airports, with many direct flights from the mainland.
Sugar Ridge, Antigua
While Sugar Ridge in Antigua is not on the beach, it does have some of the most stunning views in the Caribbean. Each of the 60 suites offers a king canopy bed and a large terrace. Ground floor suites have private plunge pools, and the property has an infinity pool that sits at the highest point of the resort.
The Ridgetop Terrace is one of the best places for an outdoor ceremony with stunning views. On any clear day of the year, you can see neighboring isles Nevis and St. Kitts. You can also host a very elegant reception at the famed onsite restaurant, Carmichael’s. Guests will love the Caribbean-fusion dishes like tiger shrimp and fried plantains.
