Vacationing as a couple is something that is as special as it is unique. Everything has to be as close to perfect as possible—for the sake of both the experience and the memories. So where is the best place to vacation as a couple? Despite the undeniable truth of the saying, “To each his own,” one of the most undeniably perfect spots to vacation as a couple is The Caves in Negril, Jamaica, which is closely followed by the Emaho Sekawa Resort in Fiji, and Jade Mountain Resort in St. Lucia.

The Caves Negril, Jamaica

Candlelit dining at The CavesCandlelit dining at The Caves

The Caves is perched on the edge of gentle limestone cliffs that descend into the crisp light blue Caribbean Sea. It’s a relatively short drive, just 80 minutes away from the Montego Bay airport. The property is immersed in lush greenery that simultaneously reflects the raw feel of the Jamaican jungle and the thoughtfulness of well-manicured landscaping. Guests have the option of 12 accommodations situated right next to the cliff, affording views that stretch for miles and miles of light to heavy blue sea.

The Caves has a mix of private and shared dining. Guests can sit in their own candlelit nook, sit at the edge of the cliff and gaze out over the water, or nestle in with other guests under a tasteful thatched palapa. An escape to the spa for a brown sugar body scrub or a massage while looking out at the ocean provides the perfect end of a day at the beach or exploring the sights and flavors of Negril.

Emaho Sekawa Resort Fiji

Emaho SekawaEmaho Sekawa

The Emaho Sekawa redefines the concept of getting away. Tucked in the reaches of Fiji, Emaho Sekawa brings its guests to a world simultaneously outside of our own and the best of what this planet has to offer. Endless stretches of ocean views are only interrupted by the Fijian mountains on the horizon. The rooms are cozy and integrated with the outside, complete with the rustic-chic finishes of natural local woods and contemporary South Pacific architecture.

Enjoy a candle-lit dinner surrounded by mountains on one side and the ocean on the other, or eat inside at their first class restaurant. Couples are treated to a local serenade or equally romantic quiet dinners or spa treatments for two. 

Jade Mountain Resort St. Lucia

Jade Mountain ResortJade Mountain Resort

With the Caribbean Sea and the mountains of St. Lucia in the background, couples can truly dive into the St. Lucia experience with Jade Mountain Resort. True to its name, the lush green mountains jut out of the landscape like the fingers of hands gently holding guests in a home away from home.

However, the comforts of home are eclipsed by views that are simply unreal, melding guests with a virtual deck of postcard shots. Sit in an infinity pool surrounded by natural rock and look out into the sea. Or couples can relax with a massage complemented by the warm Caribbean breeze.

Jade Mountain’s property includes their own organic farm that supplies the ingredients for their two top-end restaurants, guests’ private dining, and even a chocolate lab where guests can sample the fruits of chocolate experimentation—all in the name of science, of course. 


A couple’s vacation is a special time that shouldn’t be interrupted by anything. These destinations take couples out of the day-to-day grind and into a vacation that turns regular life into a faint memory.

Punta Cana, translated, is aptly named: Sweet Cape. It is all that and then some as it juts out into the Caribbean, providing some truly incredible beach experiences.

Playa Bavara

Suite at the Reserve at Paradisus Palma RealSuite at the Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real

Playa Bavara, known for its fine sand and active waves tops off the list. It’s a popular beach, and for good reason: it gives beachgoers a chance to both chill out and throw themselves around in the surf. Boogie boarders and surfers alike can channel their rambunctious youth before plopping down on a towel or chair to take in the rays. Rent a buggy and tear through the sand, rally car style. After a day in the sun, adventurers can slide up north to the nearby Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real. Comfortable rooms are presented with a modern, yet fun appeal. Complete with gourmet dining, this resort has everything a vacationer needs to slip off the shades, put up the feet, and relax.

A short distance from the beach is the Westin Punta Cana Resort and Club. This resort promises plenty of sunny fun with a host of water activities, fine dining, and banquet and meeting centers if you’ve planned a trip with a business edge. You can keep the activities going with volleyball or relax at the well-manicured beach.

Playa Juanillo

Sanctuary Cap CanaSanctuary Cap Cana

With its gentle pocket of a curve, pure white sand, and ultra-light blue water, Playa Juanillo is many people’s number one pick in Punta Cana. The open stretch between the sea and trees is great for soccer, Frisbee or whatever your imagination devises. This beach retreat is known in Punta Cana for its remarkable, pillow-soft sand. As beautiful as the beach is the Sanctuary Cap Cana. It sprawls out with five restaurants and five pools.  When guests get hungry, they can enjoy the restaurants, and they can top the night off at one of the convenient bars. Those who want to get some work done can make use of the business center or even book a meeting room or the conference center to collaborate with others. 


Punta Cana’s unique appeal is accented by the diversity of its beaches. Each one offers its own take on the Punta Cana experience. Whether you want nice, big waves, a calm wading area, or air-soft sand, Punta Cana is most definitely a sweet cape.

As hotels endeavor to provide the best possible service, they are trying to find the best way to give their guests exactly what they need. Often, it’s all about the little things. This is the primary concepts behind hotel butler service. Here is how hotel butler service works.

What Does a Hotel Butler Do?

A hotel butler does certain things for you that many people tend to do for themselves. For instance, you can get checked into the hotel while still inside your room. This can save you the time and effort you would usually expand while checking in at the front desk. The butler can also help you both unpack your luggage and pack your luggage. And instead of getting the robotic hotel wake-up call, a butler can give you a personalized phone call to wake you up in the morning. In addition, the butler can do things like iron your clothes or shine your shoes.

Additional Benefits of a Hotel Butler

However, there are some things that a butler can do for you that you may not have done for yourself or maybe may not have even thought about. For instance, a butler can welcome you into your suite. This can be a nice way to enter your room after a long, tiring trip. It’s also always comforting to see a warm smiling face. A butler can also bring you a daily serving of food that is meant to make you feel more welcome. Or if you would like to have something special, like a fruit basket, a butler can also provide that.

Why a Hotel Butler May Work for You

You only get to pamper yourself every now and then. Doing so using a hotel butler can give your trip just the little extra bit of comfort you need in order for it to really feel like a vacation. Many of us spend a lot of time working for other people. This can get tiring after a while even though you might make a good amount of money doing it. Opting for hotel butler service gives you the chance to have somebody serve you instead. Even though it may feel self-indulgent to do so, it really isn’t. It makes your vacation more comfortable, and it helps support the butler who serves you.

Having a butler while you stay at a hotel, can also help you make your stay more efficient and productive. There are some things you have to do that you simply may not have the time to do on your own. For instance, if you have an important meeting or an important date, and your shoes actually do need shining, having this done for you can free you up to do something else. Or if you do not have enough time to get a full breakfast, having a food basket brought to your room can be a convenient way to get the day started off right.

Regardless of why you choose to have butler service at a hotel, the objective is to have a nice, relaxing time. Either way, it is good form to give your butler a tip to express your appreciation for the little (or big) ways he or she made your trip more enjoyable.
