Seeking a boutique/intimate Caribbean honeymoon in March 2018

I'm looking to book our honeymoon somewhere in the Caribbean in mid-March of next year, and need help finding a hotel or resort! Here are the basics of what we're looking for!

- Budget: around $6,000 (including fight, hotel, food)
- Location: preferably something not TOO touristy (especially because March is spring break time). not looking for a "party island." we are more foodies than anything, and love to explore the culture of where we visit!
- Hotel: looking for something boutique/modern/high-design. Doesn't have to be all-inclusive, but we really do want a unique experience, not a cookie cutter honeymoon feel. A spa is a definite plus.
- Activities: we love trying new foods, spa treatments, shopping, etc. wouldn't rule out anything outdoorsy either, but we aren't hugely adventurous types.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

You are describing St. Bart's to a "tee". Check out Isle de France boutique hotel. It ticks off all your boxes and you'll have access to some of the best restaurants in the Caribbean.

St Barths is a great suggestion. I don't see the above suggestion fitting into what the OP asked for, as much as I liked GC.

Where are your departing from ?
Do you have specific range of dates or open ?
I have traveled a lot of places and if you are a beach person, loves good food, and a romantic, along with a place that you'll want to return to
a couple more times in your life.
Its St Barths.
Very small, easy to get around, not so easy to get to. On a 6,000 budget a boutique hotel will be tough , but in St Barths a villa will show you the other side of life , have a private chef come in one night for that special dinner , the other nights enjoy what has to be the best choice of food in the Carribean. Beaches to die for and not hard to get to.
I know of a villa that comes with a car for a week, it might work for you, if you would like more info, leave a response, I get you the info. Your flight cost might be your problem this late.

Look at Rockhouse in Negril.

I love Negril, but I sure wouldn't call Rockhouse "modern high end design" as requested.

It *does* fit "not cookie cutter" and "unique experience". As would Tensing Pen (also on The Cliffs of Negril).

Maybe La Luna on Grenada? Beautiful, secluded, small hotel. Great restaurant. Loved it there.
