Sandals Royal Bahamian | Honeymoon | Relaxed Beach Week | Nassau, Bahamas
Written by: Callie
As some of you may know, I got married! That's right I can finally settle in to my predisposed ways of going to bed at 8:30 pm and drinking hot tea because I am officially old. At least, that's what we always thought, right? Only old people get married?
ANYWAY...today I am not talking about my wedding, posts about that magnificent day will come later. Today we are talking about honeymoons! And more specifically, mine and why you too should do what we did.
The Monday after our wedding, Brenna took Jason and I to the airport and we were off to the Bahamas to the Sandals Royal Bahamian resort. I chose this as our honeymoon destination because Jason was no help planning things ("whatever you decide will be great!" is Jason's favorite phrase) and I was tired of making decisions on every little thing for the wedding so I wanted to go somewhere everything was taken care of for us and I didn't have to do anything. And we got just that.
**Disclaimer: We booked the Windsor Honeymoon Hideaway Swim Up Crystal Lagoon Zen Butler Suite and these were my experiences on this trip. You may not experience the same things I did so don't hold me to any of this!
Transportation is so easy!
So one of the things that I dislike about traveling is the logistics of how to get from place to place. In Texas it's pretty basic, you get in a car. But other places you have to decide between a plane, train, car, taxi, bus, subway, etc. Too many options. We went to the Sandals desk in the airport and were whisked away in a Rolls Royce. Now I'm not a car person and I don't care about fancy cars but Jason was so excited to ride in one!
Excursions are easy!
We did two excursions that we booked through the Sandal's website. A sail and snorkel with Seahorse Sailing Adventures and a buggy tour around the island with J&S Rentals. Both of which were very fun (buses pick you up from Sandals and they take you exactly where you need to be)! My favorite though was the buggy tour. We rode around and stopped at some of the more mentionable spots around the island, then took it off-road a bit to spend some time at a beautiful private beach.
Everything you need is just steps from your door!
Pools, beach, lounge chairs, fresh towels, like ten different restaurants, multiple bars, a spa, and even a private island are all so conveniently located! We loved the island where you could take a 5-minute boat ride for a more relaxed and casual atmosphere. The food was good and the drinks were on point!
It wasn't super crowded!
If you're like me, maybe you don't care to be surrounded by millions of people everyday? I was a little scared there would be too many people because I'd never been to a resort and did not know what to expect. There were always open chairs on the beach and open tables at dinner! I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of people at this resort, not too few, not too many!
Have you been to the Bahamas? What was your favorite part? I want to go back so tell me things to do!
