Indulge in some sweet tropical fruits, such as papaya, passion fruit and pomegranate before heading off on your first romantic excursion of the day.
Charter your own luxury half day cruise with White Sands. Recline on the comfy sun beds and delight in the views of the sparkling, crystal-clear turquoise water, lush, green uninhabited islands and breathtakingly bright coral reefs down below. Your captain will provide a gourmet meal or delectable treats at your behest, and he can also dock the boat in a private, secluded area so that you can bask in the sun on a comfortable recliner float, gently bobbing in the water with not a care in the world. Snorkeling, fishing, or exploring uninhabited islands are also options, as the crew is here to please. Luxury, fun and amazing scenic views are on the menu until you decide to head back for…….
Call on Spa Tropique to deliver their decadent services right to your door. For the small outcall fee of just $30, get pampered in the luxury of your own hotel room. Try the infamous Ooh La La aromatherapy massage for 2.
Let the rich island spices and tropical floral essences nourish, detoxify and rejuvenate your skin for a luxurious 70 minutes. Let the soothing properties and
the beautiful smells of sweet mango passion fruit, sun-kissed water lily and papaya-pineapple creme fraiche soak in and revel in the delights of such pampering. Finally, try a seaweed wrap and let it invigorate and revive you, so that you are ready for a night out on the town.
But it is not night just yet…….
Head out to Long Bay Beach and mount your horse for a peaceful, relaxing horse ride along quiet, deserted country roads, canals and a 4-mile long stretch of secluded coastline. The horses provided by Provo ponies are gentle and calm, so this will be a tranquil and soothing ride where you can take in the scenery, unwind and spend quality time together.
After the horse excursion, meander down Long Bay Beach and enjoy the seclusion, the light, soft breeze blowing through your hair, and the gentle spray of sea mist coming off the shoreline. Wander along with no destination in mind…….or dig your toes in the sand and just zone out for awhile, reveling in the memories you have created today that are sure to last a lifetime.
When you feel ready, get up and head back towards the main area of Provo. Walk hand in hand in the smooth, silky white sand and let the incoming tide gently lap at your feet. Let memories of your first kiss, your first date, that wonderful proposal overwhelm, entertain and move you.
Dine on the candle-lit terrace of Coco Bistro. Nestled under a canopy of coconut palms and surrounded by fragrant gardens, Coco Bistro provides elegant gourmet dining with a romantic, tropical ambiance. Start with the conch served with fresh Dominican pineapple ceviche. Then try the succulant conch ravioli with a rich and creamy piquant rose sauce. Wash it down with your choice of some of the finest rare red wines; perhaps try the rustic Chateau La Plagnotte St-Emilion Grand Cru Bordeaux, or a light Cabernet Sauvignon or a mahagany-rich pinot noir.
Next, take a stroll down to Bay Bistro for drinks……and watch the sun set in dramatic fashion over the sparkling turquoise water. Palm trees, tiki torches and lush greenery complete the scene, as evening sets in. Enjoy your choice of sweet cocktails, vintage rums and other fine spirits under a blissfully starry night. Should you be in need of a snack, try the Conch Crepes, which won the "Best in Festival Prize" at the 2009 Conch Fest.
Finally, head home and soak in a hot bath. Rekindle the fire and passion that you have for each other and, most of all, appreciate each other's company in this most wondrous piece of paradise.
