It’s been reported that over recent years more and more newlyweds are inviting friends and family to join them on their honeymoon!
According to Conde Nast Traveller, ‘the sudden interest in buddymoons partially stems from so many couples living together before their wedding, leaving the honeymoon feeling less precious.’ Newlyweds have a more relaxed idea of what the honeymoon should be.
In light of this, we have put together an Essential list of luxury Caribbean Buddymoon ideas to whet the appetite of those searching for a less traditional honeymoon!

Sandy Haven has to be one of the best placed hotels, on Negril’s famous seven-mile strip of pure white sandy beach. Its location is in easy reach of local bars and restaurants, but far enough to get away from it all which is why it’s so popular with other honeymooners.
The convenience of having all the modern-day facilities of a contemporary hotel with a Jamaican vibe that is difficult to find … Sandy Haven has it all. Individually designed guest rooms are comfortable and spacious, especially those with the beachfront location.
Recommended things to do as a group… Before dining at the hotel restaurant, head to Negril’s infamous ‘Rick’s Café’ on the seven-mile white sand beach at the unspoiled West End Cliffs. Indulge in a cocktail and an unrivalled view of the sunset surrounding the cliffs in a gorgeous amber hue; all this along with live reggae music to truly immerse yourself in the Jamaican lifestyle!
We feel Little Good Harbour offers something a little different, particularly due to its location away from the hustle and bustle of the ever-developing West Coast. The historical aspect is certainly part of the appeal of the property, and the original 17th century fort has been carefully and tastefully restored to create the restaurant and bar, as well as two of the hotel’s luxury suites. The other buildings which house the one and two-bedroom suites are delightful, designed as Caribbean-style guest cottages and very in keeping with the surrounding environment. The Vineyard suites offer villa-style accommodation ideal for Buddymooners seeking a relaxed resort. Sister hotel, The Atlantis, offers chic suites with a delicious restaurant. Perfect for a short break from the West Coast – an idyllic retreat for the wedding couple to escape to!
3-Bedroom Vineyard Suites - six luxurious suites in three new buildings situated on the upper terrace of the garden. Whilst distinctly tropical, they offer high quality European elegance with traditional Caribbean design. Great living space, sexy décor in neutral shades, with hard wood polished floors and pickled wood or spacious patios with living and dining areas. Each suite is named after wines from the Margaret River region of Western Australia – a connection with the family that own Little Good Harbour.
