More info please. How much are you planning to spend per night? Will you rent a car? What are your interests - staying at the resort, sightseeing, water sports?

Canneel Bay, St John!
St John is 20 minute ferry from st thomas.
Pricey but completely worth the extra $$$

The Ritz Carlton would be an excellent choice.

I saw this on the "Travel Channel". I looked it up on their website, so I am not affilated with them at all. Caneel Bay is one of the top 10.

"Top Honeymoon Destinations"

*Caneel Bay*

*St. John, US Virgin Islands*

Located on the 5,000-acre Virgin Islands National Park, the Caneel Bay resort is surrounded by seven beaches and offers a wide range of pampering and activities -- a visit to Honeymoon Beach is a must for all lovebirds. Some rooms have ocean views and a patio that opens right onto the beach, while the resort's most extravagant lodging option is a private cottage. Daytime activities include relaxing on the beach or participating in the resort's many activities, which include scuba diving, kayaking and yoga-for-two classes. The food is top-notch and the Beach Terrace offers the highly praised grand buffet on Monday nights overlooking Caneel Beach.
*What's Cool:* Inquire about their complete wedding planning service and get married at the hotel!

Try the Marriott Frenchmans Reef. My daughter had her wedding and honeymoon there. They had a great time.

My daughter spent her honeymoon there also and had a great time. Frenchmans Reef is not far from the downtown Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas. Congratulations.

Not sure what you're looking for in terms of luxury/amenities, but I recently stayed at a great small cottage up north on Hull Bay. The views were unbeleivable and it's very quiet and private up there. It's nothing fancy, but it is nice and the owners are wonderful. I can send you more info. if you're interested. Have a great time wherever you end up!

Stay on Sapphire beach. It is the BEST beach in STT and close to Red hook were the action is and you can go to St. John or the BVI by ferry.

Let me know if you are interested
