Research Reveals A Passion for Paradise And Journey's End Resort Offers A Blissful Beginning 

February 2003 - Research reveals that of the 2.6 million weddings annually (about 44,000 weddings a week) 40% of newlyweds head to the Caribbean for their honeymoon. This passion for paradise is due to the sun-drenched beaches, close proximity from the US, and romantic resorts like Belize's Journey's End, which offers irresistible rates from $109 per night. 

"The clear waters, warm sun, star-filled skies, as well as the casual elegance and the exotic locale," says Shabir Walji, President of Journey's End Resort,  "are what lovers like best about Journey's End Resort."

Having been featured twice on TV's "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous," Journey's End Resort, located on Ambergris Caye off the coast of Belize, offers honeymooners a romantic retreat to remember. The selection of rooms on this 50 acre island oasis includes 29 beach cottages each with four-poster beds, 40 deluxe rooms and a three-bedroom Caribbean villa. Palm tree lined paths lead to a fresh water pool and hot tub, the open-air Tamarind Restaurant, a gift shop and the festive beachside bar. If guests can resist the temptation to lounge in the hammocks and beach recliners nestled among the palms, the resort offers diving, snorkeling, windsurfing, sailing, kayaking and more. Anglers will be in heaven with the fishing options and sightseers will delight in the charming town of San Pedro, a short 15-minute boat ride from Journey's End Resort, and historical tours of the country's famous Maya ruins.

 Just a two-hour flight from Miami, Houston and Dallas, air service is available through American Airlines, Air Jamaica, Continental Airlines, TACA and US Airways. Hotel reservations can be made on line at www.journeysendresort.com, by calling 800-460-5665 or by emailing the team at info@journeysendresort.com.
