Why Barbados is the Ideal Place to Renew Your Wedding Vows

5 Romantic Resorts to Renew the Spark in Your Marriage

 “I like to ask locals in the Caribbean which of the islands is their favorite… and most of the time the answer is Barbados,” said Vacation expert agent Erica Gindele. And it looks like the locals aren’t the only ones converging on this Caribbean island. More couples are considering Barbados to be the perfect place to say “I do” again. Several luxe resorts and hotels feature multi-tiered vow renewal packages. With help from our network of travel experts, Vacation pulled together five of our favorite resorts. Not only do we give you the 4-1-1 on each resort, but also we provide you with a quick glance at their wedding packages to help inspire you to tie the knot again. 

Sandals Royal Barbados (St. Lawrence Gap)

Located in St. Lawrence Gap, on the southwest corner of Barbados, this highly-recommended all-inclusive resort just opened in December. For those who want to renew their vows, Sandals offers a package full of amazing amenities. What’s more, it’s all free when you book 5 or more rooms. In fact, the more rooms you book, the more perks you get, such as a bonfire with sweets and wine, a spa-themed bridal party and 6 nights in a Love Nest Suite when 12 rooms are booked. Other value-adds include a candlelight dinner under the stars and a luxury catamaran cruise while you sip glasses of Prosecco. Here’s a quick rundown of Sandals’ vow renewal package.
