If you are looking to get married in a tropical location let me personally recommend the all inclusive Sea Breeze Beach Hotel in Barbados, W.I. Knowing there are so many beautiful destinations to choose from the staff at the Sea Breeze go above and beyond to make your wedding the most memorable day of your life. Every detail is taken care of to the point you feel like royalty – from certificates and licenses to hairdressers in your room and witnesses if needed. Red Carpet treatment is an understatement here!
Married barefoot on the beach like myself or looking for something more formal in the tropical gardens the Sea Breeze is THE place to commit your lives to one another! You will spend hours frolicking the spectacular beaches, frequent numerous ‘finger-licking, “I want to linger for hours” restaurants like the Mermaid which is my favorite; such a peaceful and pleasant setting, gourmet dishes that look like they jumped out of the pages of a magazine and an atmosphere that is naturally enhanced and suited to a soon to be married couple by the serenading of doves.
Swimming pools, jacuzzis to bubble your cares away, water sports, a gym and spa – what more can you ask for? Ask them if you still get free rum punch all night if you can successfully climb a coconut tree! Ask Chef to prepare and cook-up that barracuda or marlin you caught while deep sea fishing! My barracuda was delivered right to my room and it was mouth-watering.
So rather than stay home and personally fuss over all the planning let wings carry you over the Caribbean to a world whose surreal beauty will take your breath away the moment you disembark. To people who respect your concept of love and know how to make your most important day last a lifetime; years later feeling as if it was just yesterday you shared your tropical vows.
The first two things that greet you at Grantley Adams Airport in Barbados are little green lizards curiously scurrying this way and that as if setting precedent for your days of exploration ahead, and the smiling faces of the locals. You are charmed before you even get through customs, set foot in your temporary home and plunk your luggage in your room at this 4 Star beach front. You don’t know it yet, but the sounds, sights, smells and Bajan hospitality on this magical island are permeating your soul and they will draw you back before you know it. Again and again and again until you yourself are an honorary Bajan and Barbados becomes your second home.
Staying at the Sea Breeze is pivotal to enjoying that flavor and flare which is the South Coast. Not only because it offers one of the best views on this end of the island from a secluded beach that feels like your own, but because it is central to everything a tourist desires and the romance a newly wedded couple seeks. The immaculately groomed property sprawls over 2.5 acres of prime beach front within walking distance, either by road or by beach to Oistin’s; the lively little fishing village that has something to offer both day and night in terms of food and music.
Dance the night away with my dear friend Mr. Impact – Anderson Ward, Barbados’ most well known Calypsonian. Discover an Artist Market on the weekends where you can pick up some phenomenal art work from another dear friend, Neville Kamau Crawford. You are also a mere minutes on a ZR van ($2.00 Bajan) to one of the hottest night spots on the South Coast, the St. Lawrence Gap. Check out the Sweet Potato or the Reggae Lounge!
