Honeymoon Recap!

I completely forgot to post pictures from our honeymoon, which was absolutely AMAZING! We spent a week at the Royal Plantation Ochos Rios in Jamaica. The Royal Plantation is a small boutique hotel, but also all-inclusive, so we were completely pampered all week. It was the perfect honeymoon!

The resort was really small, but very upscale. Every meal was at least 3 courses and dinner was usually 7 courses...I think I gained 5 lbs in one week! Our suite was amazing and huge. Our balcony was right over the ocean, so we had an amazing view.
Michael and I on our flight early Sunday morning:
We were greeted with champagne while we waited for our hotel transfer:
Lunch at the beach cafe...the coconut shrimp was AMAZING!

Our beautiful suite:
First day on the beach. The beach was amazing! We had beach butler service, which was perfect. They started everyday by serving Mangosas and fresh fruit...we had so many drinks on the beach!
Miami Vice...delicious!
Champagne before dinner:
Dinner at La Terrace, the more casual of the 2 dinner restaurants:
Our yummy dessert:
We went zip-lining through the canopy one was so much fun. I highly recommend it!

I would HIGHLY recommend the Royal Plantation for anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing honeymoon. We had so many extras included, like snorkeling, glass-bottom boat tour, kayaking, high tea in the afternoons, turn-down service...I could go on and on. Michael and I had such a good time just relaxing, reading, laying on the beach, and eating yummy food. I want to go back!
