Ideas for Anniversary/ Birthday Trip

Jump to last reply

We plan on taking a weekend trip without the kids (I live in NJ) in the early part of October. Looking for somewhere we can relax and lay out in the sun. My wife wants to do Bermuda because its a short flight. My only hesitation is that its about $600/ night for a nice hotel and the ocean water may not be so warm at that time. Also, they tend to have small pools and we prefer swimming in pools over the ocean.

We want to do something different - I was thinking Florida but she thinks its boring. We like really nice hotels (who doesn't?) and I like the ability to get out of the resort and explore (rules out some Carribbean places). We have enjoyed Hyatt in Bonita Springs (great pools, lazy river) and Ritz Carltons in Cancun (beautfiul beach, luxury hotel) and Ritz Carlton in Key Biscayne Florida. We have been to (a long time ago) South Seas Resort in Capitva Island (nice but was low-key - maybe too low-key). We have been to Anguila and enjoyed the beautfiful beaches. I was looking at the EPIC hotel in Miami. Also looking into St. Lucia (hesitation there is long travel times and I'm trying not to go to countries where we have to wait on custom/ immigration lines)

Any ideas (hotels) would be much appreciated! I'm not focused on couples only resorts because kids will be in school at that time.
