The most romantic hotels in Mexico and the Caribbean

1. Jade Mountain – Soufrière, St. Lucia

You’ll find Jade Mountain Resort on the Caribbean island of St Lucia.

Hotel rooms are connected by bridges, so they seem to float in the air. It’s also the only resort on the island with a view of both the Petit and Gros Piton mountains.

Rooms are more like private sanctuaries, where the ‘fourth wall’ of each room is 8,000 feet of clear Caribbean waterfront. The resort even has its own private helipad for guests who really want to arrive in style.

2. Azulik – Tulum, Mexico

An eco-villa resort surrounded by the turquoise waters of Tulum beach, with incredible sunset views of the beach and jungle from its treetop restaurant, Koh. The hotel’s villas are built from natural materials, and are lit by candles for extra romance.

Azulik villas also come with a Mayan mosaic bathtub, which is filled with cenote’s water; considered sacred water in Mayan culture.

3. Coco Plum Island Resort – Coco Plum Cay, Belize

A private island resort where time stands still, Coco Plum Island Resort specialises in honeymoon all-inclusive packages, complete with candlelit dinners by the water. You’ll want to lounge in a hammock here forever.

Each of the 18 private cabanas, all just steps from the beach, have views of the Caribbean Sea. There’s also one over-water villa with a private veranda and extended sunbathing deck.

4. Nizuc Resort & Spa  – Cancún, Mexico

A dreamy beachfront resort with lush tropical gardens. With spacious terraces, private pools, huge bathtubs, panoramic views, and gorgeous gardens, paradise is at your door. What more could you possibly ask for?

Ocean Suites are adults only, with private access to two white sandy beaches. Perfect for couples looking to take it easy in the sun – you won’t want to leave.

5. Zoëtry Paraiso de la Bonita – Puerto Morelos, Mexico

An ultra-luxury boutique resort, Zöetry Paraiso de la Bonita is the perfect romantic setting. Special suite packages include a dedicated butler, and an on-demand private chef – as we mentioned, this is ultra-luxury.

Or, if you really want to push the boat out, the resort will arrange a candle lit dinner served in your suite or on your private terrace. Relax in a romantic sunken bath for two, a king-size bed with luxurious linens, sensuous scented oils and candles.

6. Ladera Resort – Soufrière, St. Lucia

Once part of the Rabot Estate, one of Soufrière’s most famous cocoa plantations, Ladera Resort stands today as one of St. Lucia’s most unique and luxurious resorts.

Suites have panoramic views of the Pitons and Caribbean Sea, with a private heated pool and romantic wooden swing. Easily one of the most romantic hotels in Mexico and the Caribbean.

7. Cap Maison – Gros Islet, St. Lucia

The boutique resort of Cap Maison has panoramic views of where Caribbean Sea meets Atlantic Ocean. The resort even has its own Proposal Concierge, who arranges impressive proposals.  One took place on Rock Maison, a cocktail deck perched above the surging waves, where a rock of another kind was zipped down the Champagne Zip Line.

The beautiful beach at Cap Maison (or as locals call it, “Smugglers Cove”) has stellar snorkelling spots. Keep an eye out for turtles if you’re lucky!
