Attention: Astrology Loving and Scuba Diving Honeymooners

Cap Juluca, Anguilla, British West Indies

unique honeymoonAt Cap Juluca, a curved row of whitewashed villas line the beach, each housing four guest suites replete with glass-walled shower stalls that lead outdoors into private, walled gardens where you and your new spouse can sunbathe in your birthday suits. But there’s more to this seaside Caribbean hideaway than frozen mango drinks and moonlight strolls beside the sea – for one week each month, the Casablanca-esque resort is host to “Total Wellness: Mind, Body & Spirit,” a program that blends yoga, astrology, and spa treatments with shamanic healing sessions and transpersonal work.

Designed to help facilitate personal growth, resolve lingering issues, and enrich relationships, the program is lead by yoga teacher and life coach Diana Bourel. Recreational options include challenging your loved one to a languid game of croquet on the resort lawn, sailing, scuba diving, or strolling the white sand beaches hand-in-hand beside the turquoise sea.

Breakfasts of tropical fruits, berries, freshly baked bread, juices, and coffee or tea are delivered each morning to your villa’s wide veranda overlooking the ocean. Afternoon tea is served at the main building every day at 4 p.m. Have a casual lunch at the beachside and book dinner at one of the two onsite restaurants: Pimms, with gourmet seafood and island fare, or exotic Kemia, where you’ll swear you’re being served your tapas inside a sparkling, cushioned genie bottle. The spa features a range of traditional and holistic therapies designed for two. The Jamu Massage includes elements of Chinese and Balinese techniques, accompanied by your choice of healing spiced or floral essential oils. Should your desire be for a more extensive therapy, the Juluca Ritual for Two combines the sensual textures of sea salts, herbs, flowers, and mint clay to exfoliate, followed by a massage with tropical oils, hot tea, and a candlelight sea salt and flower bath for two. The ritual is bestowed in the privacy of your personal villa.
