We loved St. Lucia so much because it wasn’t a party island,” Kendra Wilkinson Baskett tells OK! of the Caribbean haven she and her husband, NFL star Hank Baskett, chose for their paradise honeymoon in June.

The couple chose Jade Mountain, where each “sanctuary” suite has an open fourth wall, a private, iridescent glass-tiled infinity pool and amazing ocean views. “It’s so peaceful going to sleep at night,” says Kendra. (room rates from $1,150 per night; jademountainstlucia.com). If you can stand to leave your suite, the beach offers snorkeling, diving and a sunset cruise. “Hank and I did the cruise,” says Kendra. “There was a saxophone player — it was so romantic!”

Kendra and Hank dined at Jade Mountain Club restaurant, at the top of the hillside hideaway, where popular dishes include the West Indian curry grilled bonito tuna. The couple also ventured into the unusual drive-in volcano at Sulphur Springs Park. “It was cool,” exclaims Kendra. “We were explorers!”

Flights to St. Lucia are available from Air Jamaica, American Airlines, Delta and US Airways.
