Bahamian Honeymoon


For our honeymoon, we went to Sandals Royal Bahamian in the Bahamas! First off, I cannot say enough good things about Sandals. We always had wonderful service, friendly staff, amazing food and the whole resort, including the rooms, is beautiful! All Sandal locations are all-inclusive which is the way to go-especially on your honeymoon. Our agenda for the week? Tons of relaxation and pool time. And eating plenty of delicious food!

I think this was after 3 hours asleep. A very early flight but we were excited!!



We are here! You can hardly see it, but down that pathway is a hammock, a wonderful hammock. Pretty soon after we arrived, we decided to relax in the hammock for a bit. 5 minutes later we were OUT. Probably, the best 30 minute nap I have ever taken.

 A view from one of our favorite lunch spots...


Hanging out by the pool, our itinerary most days. Robert got to rap a little ice ice baby...




They had some sort of entertainment each night. It was always very fun!


 The view from our room. The color of the water was incredible. This was my first beach vacation and I was blown away.


 Room service. One of our best ideas.


 A huge perk- they have another island you can take a short boat ride to. We loved it there...


 The best part? There are hammocks everywhere. So relaxing. We also took a massage class and it was so fun! We learned the proper way to give back/head rubs, it was so great and helpful!



More food. I am telling you it was delicious. We were very impressed. Let's also talk about drinks, one of there famous drinks at the resort is a Humming Bird. A crazy combination of stuff but oh so good. That's the almost gone drink in the picture...






 my handsome groom!

The boat ride back was a little windy...



 One of our favorite things to do at night was to relax by the fire pits right next to the beach. Most nights with live music!

We got to go snorkeling one day and it was soo neat. I had Rob stay by me the whole time though, I am a little bit of a scardy cat, but I so enjoyed it at the same time.





Each day they had games like bingo by the pool. We also participated in some relay races with other couples, it was really fun!

So many gorgeous flowers...








One of our favorite meals. This night after dinner, we sat in comfy chairs and listened to jazz music.






yes, we did watch the NBA finals one night. Don't judge. 

My favorite meal. I got this wayy too many morning for breakfast. 

Our resort was in Nassau, the same place as the Atlantis hotel. I used to be a huge Mary-Kate and Ashley fan, so visiting Atlantis was a must for me. Holiday in the Sun, anyone? We took a little day trip to the resort, which we scheduled once we got to sandals.


It was very neat to see the resort, it is huge and pretty incredible. But it was also packed. The outside is basically a huge really nice water park. It was very different than what we had gotten used to- calm and relaxing. This place was loud and crazyy busy. After a little exploring and some water slides (so fun), we headed back to our resort early, but it was still neat to see.


A beautiful sunset on the beach...




One of the prettiest restaurants. The day you arrive you can sit down with a concierge and plan out where you want to eat each night. Some restaurants require a reservation, so you tell them what you want each night and they will set it all up for you! Easy peasy.



Our last day. Robert's face says it all. We were not ready to leave.

A few pictures around the resort. If you are thinking of this destination for a vacation?? Do it!






Of course, the traditional, write your last name (or the shorter version of it) in the sand picture.


We had such a fabulous honeymoon- it was the perfect time away and I cannot wait to go back one day! I sure do miss that place. Swimming in the pool, laying on the beach, pizza by the pool...does not get much better.

Any other questions about this resort? Shoot me an email!
