1. Choose your Dream Destination – Barbados

Barbados is a popular destination for couples looking for an unforgettable honeymoon, destination wedding, vow renewal or simple escape together. This stunning Caribbean Island offers more than just beautiful beaches. Enjoy the night life, restaurants, and stunning villas, or get lost in the natural beauty of Hunte’s Garden, The Animal Flower Cave or on an island tour. Couples who enjoy a little adventure can sign up for surf lessons, or you can keep things slow with a relaxing sunset catamaran sail. Not only will you fall in love all over again in Barbados, but you will fall in love with this charming island too. 


2. Decide when you will visit 

Visit Barbados during the ‘off season’ summer months between April and November. The island is quieter this time of year making it more of an escape. Beaches are peaceful for your morning walks, and it is easier to get reservations at some of the islands most popular restaurants. Another perk to traveling in the summer is the lower prices on everything from activities on island, air travel and accommodation of course!

We are currently offering 15% OFF stays of 7 nights or more (at select villas) when you stay between April 16thand November 15th 2023. Email our team at info@realtorslimited.com for more details on our 2023 Summer Specials.

5. Pack the essentials 

Pack light, you don’t need much for a romantic escape to this island.

Other than that, just bring your excitement and be ready for the vacation of a lifetime.

Email us at info@realtorslimited and ask about our ‘Romance Package’ for a carefully curated collection of Barbados’ best activities for couples. 


7. Make your dinner reservations 

Sitting down together to enjoy a meal together is a different kind of intimacy. Take a minute to really experience the taste of each food item. Try ordering different dishes and share, use this quiet time to really connect and talk with your partner. 

Barbados is known for its fabulous food from cheap street food eats to fine dining experiences. We recommend falling in love with the flavour of the island by trying a range of dining experiences. For cheaper cultural eats we recommend the local fish fry at Oistins, or fish cutters from Cuzz. For a relaxed night our guests love, Lonestar, TidesChampersThe LocalQP Bistro and many more. 

8. Plan how you will get around

Looking for adventure? Get lost together on a self-guided island tour in a rental vehicle. Pack a picnic and go beach hoping and discover Barbados on your own. Our concierge team can arrange your rental car booking for you. Looking to relax? Hire a private driver or stick to taxis. Our team will be happy to help book airport transfers and drivers.


9. Get Creative

Daily life can get monotonous, spice things up on your Barbados holiday with creative date ideas. Start your day with a morning walk along the beach. Use this time to talk about what you have planned that day and take turns organizing activities.

Some unique date ideas include private hikes along the east coast, private painting or cooking classes and morning yoga at your villa. Our concierge team can arrange to have a masseuse come to your villa so you can enjoy a relaxing couples massage from the comfort of your private villa. Pack a picnic basket and head to the tropical Hunte’s Garden for a setting unlike any other. When in doubt savour your love on a sunset stroll along a west coast beach. It doesn’t take much to fall in love with beautiful Barbados is your backdrop.

10. Relax Together

This one might sound simple however it is very important! Our lives are so consumed by everything that is going on around us and on our devices, sometimes we forget to take a step back and simply enjoy each other’s company. Spend a full day at your villa together, relaxing poolside or making cocktails for each other. Plan a day at the beach where you can just do nothing but be present in the moment and spend time with your loved one.

Tip – Put your phones facedown, in another room, on silent, so you aren’t tempted to check them. Use the time to reconnect and enjoy being part of each other’s lives.
