A growing trend towards luxurious honeymoons in exotic locales is behind a record number of couples taking advantage of the more affordable casual luxury of Belize, according the Lodge at Chaa Creek’s wedding and honeymoon planner.

The Belizean eco-resort’s Denise Duran said the increase in the number of couples “looking for that extra something” has spurred greater interest in what she calls “adventure romance travel” in exotic locations such as Belize.

Ms Duran said she believed that all-inclusive honeymoon vacation packages, which put the cost of an overseas honeymoon in reach of more people, are helping to fuel the trend towards more exotic honeymoons.

“Honeymoons have always been important to people, but we’re seeing a definite trend towards couples wanting to do something different, to share a more exotic and at the same time luxurious experience. Think The Great Gatsby in the bush. It seems as if more couples are looking to start their lives together by doing something extraordinary.

“And now there are these affordable all-inclusive honeymoon vacation packages that really drive the costs way down. I’ve had several people tell me there’s no way they could afford to do something this luxurious in their own countries, so that’s another big attraction,” she said.

Ms Duran explained that with Chaa Creek’s all-inclusive Belize honeymoon vacation packages, everything is included in one set price from the moment the guests land in Belize until they leave, cutting out many incidental expenses and wasted time.

“The last things a couple want to think about is how much they’re spending or what to do next. Missing a connection or being hit with extra charges can cause stress and really detract from what should be a carefree time together.
“With our all-inclusive honeymoon holidays, all transfers, luxury accommodation and meals are included along with all activities and access to Chaa Creek’s 365 acre private rainforest nature reserve. There are miles of beautiful, secure jungle trails perfect for horseback or mountain bike rides as well as the butterfly farm, Natural History Centre, infinity pool, fine dining restaurant, the well-stocked Jungle Lounge and a whole range of activities such as canoeing and guided nature walks.

“Honeymooners will be especially interested in amenities such as our beautiful Hilltop Spa with professional couple’s massages and relaxing treatments or the gorgeous tropical gardens surrounding their private verandas and Jacuzzi suites. There’s nothing like sipping champagne while listening to the monkeys and toucans to create a romantic, exotic honeymoon atmosphere,” she said.

Ms Duran said that the ideal honeymoon package should cater to a couple’s specific interests and desires.

“In addition to being all-inclusive, we feel that a honeymoon package should be flexible and really reflect what each couple wants. We understand how important this is, and we work hard to make sure we get it right and deliver a honeymoon in paradise that will be unforgettable,” Ms Duran said.”
