Just a short flight from Miami, Turks and Caicos is relatively unspoiled by travelers. Beaches are uncrowded and the coral reefs are undisturbed.
Parrot Cay (pictured), a favorite of celebrities, is on a private 1,000-acre island north of Providenciales. (Rates start at $315 a night for a garden view room.)
Honeymooners are greeted with a complimentary bottle of champagne and, on request, rose petals will be scattered around the room.
In addition to white sand beaches, the hotel has two restaurants, a spa (try the olive oil polyphenol treatment), water sports like SCUBA diving and wind surfing, tennis courts, a gym, infinity pool, and trails that snake through the undeveloped back country.
For those hankering for the modern conveniences of the home, the library has pool tables, Internet-connected PCs, a satellite TV and even PlayStation consoles.
But outside the resort's activities, there's not much to do on these islands, Duane-Meyer cautioned. "If it rains you can get very bored."
