Story Idea: Gifting a honeymoon

In 2010, 88% of engaged couples set up either a wedding or honeymoon registry. With this in mind, The Westin St. John Resort & Villas has released their newly launched honeymoon registry.

What sets The Westin St. John Resort & Villas Honeymoon Registry apart from traditional cash based registries is that these gift monies are sent directly to the couple’s honeymoon property and placed in the couple’s Starwood room folio. This unique feature assures that gifts to the bride and groom will in fact be enjoyed and makes it easy for the honeymoon couple to enjoy their honeymoon gift during their time away.

This offer is made possible by partnering with the leading honeymoon registry company, HoneymoonWishes, which was created on the basis that many couples today already had their toasters and towels. Founder, Kristen envisioned a bridal registry centered on honeymoon specific gifts and experiences which will create memories that couples will cherish for a lifetime.

Gift choices include honeymoon room contributions, sunset sailings, snorkeling adventures, spa treatments, island tours, SCUBA, kayak tours and much, much more.

The Westin St. John Resort & Villas is set on a crescent-shaped beach on Great Cruz Bay and is surrounded by 47 lush, tropical acres.  The resort offers 174 guest rooms with two Westin Workout rooms, three one bedroom suites and five townhouses housed in low-lying structures and decorated in delightful island pastel colors.  One hundred and forty-six fully equipped vacation villas, many with private waterfall pools, are also available for rent.  There are four dining and entertainment venues, 24-hour room service and seasonal entertainment. The quarter-acre fresh-water swimming pool with a pool bar, a Jacuzzi and a decorative waterfall is the largest in the USVI.  The Spa at The Westin St. John Resort provides facials, body treatments and massage.  Activities abound with six lighted tennis courts, snorkeling, diving, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, parasailing, fishing, a full-service fitness center, jeep rentals, and hiking in St. John’s extensive Virgin Islands National Park, which covers 2/3 of the island.  Golf is available via ferry on St. Thomas.  The charming port of Cruz Bay and the sleepy town of Coral Bay are nearby.
