Bermuda vs. Virgin Gorda

Jump to last reply

About three months ago my fiance and I decided on Virgin Gorda for our July 2016 Honeymoon. I had chose Rosewood Little Dix Bay as our resort as well. The resort has a stay 5 nights get 2 nights free deal and it seems pretty reasonable for all that it offers. However, the logistics of getting to Virgin Gorda have me doubting my choice. Luckily I have not booked anything as of yet. But since time is ticking I need to make a decision soon. The biggest issue is the cost of airfare and the amount of connections/time it takes to get to Virgin Gorda from Houston. 2.5 months ago the price of flights were reasonable at about $775 for a total travel time of about 9.5 hours with 2 stops. However, randomly about 8 weeks ago the price went up about $300 a ticket with American Airlines. The other airlines are $1250+. It just seemed ridiculous to pay this much to fly to the Caribbean from a major city on the Gulf. I could basically fly to Europe or Hawaii for cheaper.

So to make a long story short I am still considering VG but am also looking closely at Bermuda and possibly Hawaii. My main concern with Bermuda is the cost of lodging if you want a beach front hotel. We want to do alot of snorkeling, like good good, and want to avoid a trashy/tourist trap island. Any comments or suggestions about these three choices is welcome. I appreciate the input.
