As the Caribbean heads into its shoulder (April-June) and low (July-November) seasons, the regions resorts are offering up some romance packages that are a great value and full of fun extras. So if youre planning a just-the-two-of-you escape over the next few months, here are four options worth considering:
Curacao Couples Getaway Package: If youre looking to try a new island, I can recommend colorful, cultural Curacao, where this five-night package from the Lodge Kura Hulanda Spa and Casino (shown above at left) is a great value. It includes five nights accommodation in an Oceanfront Studio or Oceanfront One-Bedroom Suite, a three-hour romantic snorkel trip to a nearby reef, a poolside cabana couples massage, buffet breakfast daily, complimentary transport to sister property Hotel Kura Hulanda Spa and Casino (in photogenic Willemstad), and taxes and service charges, from $1,450 per couple.

Peak to Beach Package on St. Lucia: St. Lucia is one of those lush, mountainous islands where the view and the vibe change around every bend.

Spend three nights in a Gros Piton Suite with a private infinity pool at Ladera (shown at left) and three nights in an Oceanview Villa Suite with private pool at Cap Maison, plus youll get all meals at the resorts terrific restaurants (Dasheene at Ladera and Cap Maisons Cliff at Cap), one-hour spa treatments at both resorts spas, and airport transfers, from $5,790 through December 19, 2012.
Amorous Anacona on Anguilla: Anguilla is known for its sugar-white sand and gentle surf and you can enjoy it all plus a generous dose of romance with the Amorous Anacona package from Anacona Boutique Hotel, an intimate 27-room property overlooking Meads Bay.
