Jon and I came to Anguilla for a delayed honeymoon 40 years ago. We fell in love with the island, bought a condo in 1982, and, then, in 2006 the dream of Bird of Paradise came true. We have visited Anguilla as young marrieds, as parents with a baby, and before we knew it we were hosting members of our son’s college hockey team. Of course, all during these year’s there have been girlfriend getaways and lots of couples vacations. I, as well as the Bird of Paradise concierge team, are always thrilled to share our combined knowledge of secret hideaways and favorite spots on Anguilla with honeymooners. We want them to return again and again, as we did!
When you book your Anguilla honeymoon at the Bird of Paradise villa, your concierge will send you a form to fill out. She will gather all the information you request on boat charters, restaurants, in-villa spa treatments, water sports, chef services and more. Your concierge makes all the arrangements so your honeymoon is worry free. Michelle will be waiting for you outside of Customs and will give you a cell phone, so you may contact her from wherever you are on the island. She will join you at the Bird of Paradise to show you the operations of your private home. Chef Kylon will greet you with rum punch and our signature champagne cocktail, as well as appetizers. Your car with driver’s license will be waiting for you in the driveway.
The entire villa will be just for you, but because of the unique layout of the villa, you won’t feel as if you’re rambling around in a big house. You may choose whichever suite you want, but I think you’ll pick the one which is in s separate building by itself with a second swimming pool. You’ll have indoor and outdoor showers. The whirlpool tub overlooks a private garden. Your four poster bed faces the pool and the Caribbean. The French doors open on three sides to catch the tropical views and the scents of jasmine from the garden.
Linens are from the luxurious house of Frette and amenities from Bulgari. Your suite has its own bar and coffee service.
What does an Anguilla island honeymoon cost?
At the Bird of Paradise, because you will be using only one of the four master suites, we reduce the rate of the villa and give back to you our savings in utilities and housekeeping. You decide what your Anguilla honeymoon should encompass based on your specific budget. Total privacy, or lots of pampering?
There are fun decisions to be made. Would you like the villa chef to leave a sumptuous breakfast for you overlooking the beach? Should Jose set up beach chairs and umbrellas for you? Would you like to spend the day at the beach or lounging on the sundeck? A chef-prepared lunch at the swim-up ledge of the pool? Dinner under the stars or in the garden overlooking the shimmering lights of the pool? Dessert by the outside fireplace? Perhaps you would like a rate with no staff. Instead of a chef, you’d like the refrigerator stocked with all your favorite foods? Let us give you a quotation for your Anguilla honeymoon based on your budget and the level of privacy and service for which you’re looking.
Hint: When planning your Anguilla honeymoon, consider the rate structure in the Caribbean. Rates double in high season and triple for Christmas and New Year’s. Your best pricing will be for low season. No worries, the weather in Anguilla is great.

Anguilla Honeymoon Recommendation
Wherever you stay, don’t stay behind the gates of your honeymoon villa or resort! Get out and explore the island, especially the beaches for which Anguilla is famous. Below the Bird of Paradise is Sandy Hill Bay, but to the east is the longest and most deserted beach on the island, Savannah Bay. Down the road and to the west is Crocus Bay, a perfect spot to snorkel, kayak or paddle board. The most famous, and busiest beach, on Anguilla is to the North of Bird of Paradise, Shoal Bay. Reminder, the entire island is only 16 miles x 3 miles. On a daily basis you will receive a newsletter from Jon and me with suggestions for daily excursions on the island and information on shopping, art galleries, and more.
