Off the Beaten Path
This month we focus on locations off the beaten path. These are luxury resorts, that most honeymoon couples have never heard of. We can build the perfect honeymoon or vacations around any one of these resorts. Contact us at 401-397-5515.
Post Ranch Inn, Big Sur, California
Post Ranch Inn, on a 1,200-foot-high ridge in Big Sur overlooking the Pacific, is the romance spot of choice for Hollywood royalty—owing, no doubt, to the privacy of its 40 adults-only homes and suites, which feature salvaged redwood and sheet metal artwork. Take your pick of the views: Pacific Suites have decks and tiled baths overlooking the water while windows in Peak Houses frame the Santa Lucia Mountains. Mini-bars are complimentary.
Cliff House, Ogunquit, Maine
Set on 70 cliff-side acres on Maine’s southern coast, this 1872 New England landmark has seen a lot in its lifespan, but a refurb has introduced something new altogether: year-round accommodations. The 226 accommodations (including 186 guest rooms, 40 suites, and a standalone cottage) have been freshened up with glass terraces, fireplaces for cozing up on cold winter days, and locally made Cuddledown comforters. There’s now a full-service spa and grand ballroom (perfect for those planning a quintessential New England wedding), and new dining concepts that include a year-round lobster shack and raw bar.
The Caves, Negril, Jamaica
The 12 thatched-roof cottages (and one grand villa) that make up The Caves are island living at its best: vaulted ceilings, wood furnishings, brightly painted shutters, batik print fabrics, and a constant breeze that wafts through every open space. You could be anywhere in the Caribbean, but the Jamaican-style cuisine of sweet banana pancakes, saffron crab cakes, and jerk barbecue served in one of two gazebos is a constant reminder that you're in Bob Marley country. Cap off the adventure with a cocktail at the lauded Blackwell Rum Bar, in a secret cave accessible via wooden footbridge.
