1. Anantara Si Kao Resort – Krabi, Thailand
The dramatic finale of the 17th season of The Bachelor was filmed at two unique Anantara resorts in Thailand. Before we saw Sean Lowe gettin down on his knee to propose to Catherine Giudici, we had a glimpse of the magic at Anantara Si Kao Resort & Spa.
This beachfront retreat forms part of Hat Chao Mai National Park and provides a gateway to some of Thailand’s best kept secrets. These are hidden secrets from fairytale islands and limestone cliffs, to mangrove reserves, virgin rainforests, hidden caves and stunning waterfalls.

One of The Bachelor dates took place at the uninhabited island of Koh Mook. Here you can swim through a narrow cave tunnel, and explore the emerald lagoon with a secret beach that is enclosed by sheer rainforest covered limestone cliffs.
This beautiful bachelor destination and idyllic waterfront resort is perfect for weddings and honeymooners, but also families and leisure travellers. Take a speedboat to the powdery white sands of Koh Kradan, dive through reefs teeming with tropical fish, refresh in the infinity pool, laze in a hammock shaded by pine trees, or indulge in exotic treatments at Anantara Spa. After a fun packed day, one of the most sensational sunsets in the world is the perfect place to spoil someone special with a unique dining experience.
2. The Buccaneer – St. Croix, US Virgin Island
Founded in the 17th century and family-run for generations, St. Croix’s The Buccaneer is the Caribbean’s longest running resort and has a fascinating historical background. The first building on Estate Shoys where The Buccaneer is located, was constructed in 1653 by Charles Martel, a Knight of Malta. This French Greathouse was placed out of sight of the sea to protect from roving foes.

Later, when the island was sold in 1733, Governor von Prock built his home on the estate, turning the French Greathouse into a sugar factory and erecting the sugar mill which is as it was in the days when sugar was king. Both cotton has been grown here, and cattle raised. But finally in 1947, the Armstrong family, who had owned and operated the estate since 1922, opened The Buccaneer for business with eleven guest rooms.
The Buccaneer, which was seen on the 17th season of ABC’s The Bachelor, blends old world charm with warm hospitality and the amenities expected by today’s traveler. The premier grounds feature an 18-hole golf course, eight tennis courts, three beaches, two pools, water sports center, an amazing spa with the best treatments for the body, fitness center, three restaurants and a shopping arcade with fine boutiques. The destination is perfect for weddings, honeymoons and family vacations, and you should definitely take a day-trip to the Buck Island reefs, and have a picnic on Whistle Beach.
