Grenada the “Spice Island” is an amazing place to experience an amazing honeymoon with a truly Caribbean feel. The warmth and charm of the Grenadian people will leave you enchanted and wanting to come back time after time. With much to see and do in Grenada you can do as much or as little as you would like from visiting the Worlds first amazing  underwater sculptures to the romantic waterfalls and lots of local tours Grenada has it all!

At the London’s World Travel Market in November Grenada’s hotels scooped 3 top awards which saw for the 4th year running, Sir Royston O Hopkin KCMG of the five-star Spice Island Beach Resort awarded Gold in the Best Platinum Hotel category, and one of my personal favourite saw the The five-star Calabash Hotel and Villas won a Bronze Award for the Best Small Hotel in the Caribbean and after meeting the owners when I was there I can say that they will make your honeymoon or holiday the best it possibly can be! Both hotels are ideal honeymoon choices.

How long is left for the Maldives Islands?



The Maldives famous for its pristine white powder beaches,amazing dive sites Climate changes threatens the existence of many destinations,with one of those being the Maldives as most likely one of the first to disappear.

It is thought that the Islands in the Maldives could be submerged by the end of the century. The Islands contribute just 0.001% of greenhouse gas emissions and will suffer with problems that it did not create. One of the largest problems are protecting the shoreline and beaches and managing waste.

The big problem is that the biggest contributor to the Islands is tourism  double edged sword as they just can’t afford to turn the tourists away. So what can be done to help the Maldives? And the big question is how long will they survive?

Royal Caribbean Cruises

Royal Caribbean International Cruise Line are set to rule the waves with their revolutionary and worlds largest new ships Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas which are due to launch December 09 and December 2010. After an amazing few days cruising on the RCI sister company Celebrity Cruise Line (which was my first ever cruise) I must say that I just can’t wait  to try out one of these Giants!

At over 360 meters long, 16 decks accommodating 6,296 passengers and 2, 165 crew these mammoth ships hold everything you could possibly want, even Central Park in the center of the ship, with themed areas from themed gardens with thousands of  tropical plants. Oasis of the Seas will also have an AquaTheatre, rock climbing walls, a carousel, mini golf course, zip wire, flow rider, ample pools and water features for children, and when the kids are having fun there plenty to keep you occupied to with beauty salon, spa. In fact there is so much to see and do on these ships you simply just could not get board and on top of all that waking up in a new destination most days – how could this possibly not be one of the best holidays anyone can ever have?

Now all I need is some time off and to get it booked!


With a reputedly 365 beaches in Antigua, there are more than enough to keep the most ardent beach hopper happy. With Direct flights from the UK it makes it an ideal Caribbean destination for families. There are a great range of All inclusive options with a host of facilities to keep the children entertained.

Antigua is a great choice for those who love sporting activities too, with cricket, sailing, windsurfing, scuba-diving, swimming with dolphins, golf horse riding,  jeep safaris to name but a few this is certainly a destination to have a relaxing or family adventure holiday.
