Wedding abroad experts, Tropical Sky, are in ‘oar’ of their latest newly-wed couple. Neil Ward and Louise Robertson ‘tide’ the knot at Almond Beach Village in Barbados over the Valentine’s weekend after Neil rowed a mammoth 2,500 miles across the Atlantic for the ceremony!

Royal Plantation Island provides private island retreat in the Exumas, Bahamas

Tucked away in the quiet center of the Exumas chain of islands in the Bahamas is the largely untouched, 50-acre Royal Plantation Island at Fowl Cay. A classic favorite for boating, diving and fishing, the island maintains the strict Royal Plantation Collection standards of excellence in a uniquely remote destination.

The spectrum of blue surrounding Royal Plantation Island is breathtaking. Turquoise, cerulean and ice-blue are some of the descriptions that fall short of effectively describing the waters of this spectacular destination.

In 2007, each of the six private one-, two- and three-bedroom villas at Royal Plantation Island were renovated and outfitted with casually elegant furnishings to complement the natural surroundings.

Royal Plantation Island at Fowl CayThe barefoot chic décor of each villa features hand-selected art, elegant furnishings and luxury linens.

All villas are equipped with a fully stocked kitchen, modern electronics, Molton Brown amenities and a dedicated golf cart, beach-cruiser, bicycles and motorboat to explore neighboring beaches and cays.

The villa collection at Royal Plantation Island includes: the two-bedroom Birdcage; three-bedroom Bluemoon; three-bedroom Sweetwater; identical two-bedroom Starlight and Seabreeze; and the one-bedroom Lindon villa. For the utmost secluded getaway, the island can be rented in its entirety, and sleeps up to 30 people in total.

“Royal Plantation Island is one of the most pristine locations in the Bahamas that is still easily accessible for travelers from the US,” says Steve Huggins, General Manager of Royal Plantation Island, referring to the two-hour long flights from Ft. Lauderdale to neighboring Staniel Cay. “The island’s crystal clear waters and overall charm is truly magnetic; it’s no wonder why travelers seeking the true private island experience plan their escape here.” Continue Reading
