4. Spend a night under the stars on your private terrace / balcony:
So because you’ll be staying in one of our Merlin Bay villas, you’ll want to take some time to really make the most of that little slice of paradise. We really encourage our guests to be selfish and take some ‘me time’ when staying with us. There are countless ways to enjoy a peaceful pool day, especially when you have your pick of the large lagoon pool, or your own private plunge pool. Did we mention that the beach is just steps away too?
After your day of R&R at The Merlin Bay complex, we’d highly recommend hiring a private chef, and eating on your own terrace/balcony overlooking the Caribbean ocean. Our chefs are incredible, and will happily whip up a delicious Bajan feast for to indulge in. Many of our guests tell us just how much they loved eating in at their villas – a luxurious experience that requires minimal fuss & effort to enjoy.
Organising your private chef is super simple, and can be arranged during the booking process. Of course any last minute dinner plans will need to be coordinated through Celeste, our wonderful House Manager.
After you’ve sampled some traditional Bajan cuisine, a dip in your private plunge pool makes for the perfect way to end the night. Don’t forget your rum punch, or tipple of choice! Gaze into the sky, get lost in the stars, and let all your cares slip away…
5. Book a private boat day – incredibly romantic!:
An activity that’s sure to impress, and something not to be missed during your honeymoon in Barbados! Boat days are just divine, and there’s something so wonderful about floating peacefully on the Caribbean waters.
Barbados offers 70 miles of pollution-free, crystal clear, azure waters – meaning you can feel safe to take a dive in. Keep your eyes peeled for wild dolphins, turtles, and even humpback whales (season dependant).
We highly recommend the fabulous Seaduced Barbados for a luxury, private charter experience.
