How about a cruise?
A.I. on land tends to be aimed at families, & food can be "never mind the quality, feel the width".
Cruise lines are desperate for customers, so £6-7k could get a really good holiday - including cocktails !

I went to Sandals Barbados a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. There’s are various pools including a beautiful roof top infinity pool with beautiful views. The rooms were very nice, we had one with a massive bathtub on the balcony, it was fun to use.

DD2 went to the Royalton St Lucia late last year, and loved it there. The Hideaway section is over 18s only. Their room was huge, food great and they said the staff were amazing. They did a few trips round the island and said what an amazing place it was. Think they booked through TUI.

Thank you all
I'll look into those options....any thoughts of cruise company ?

Cruises are great - but they are far from quiet (especially round the pool area)

Mexico. El Dorado Royale is great. Lots of restaurants on the site which is huge. I think one buffet restaurant, the rest you order as normal. All inclusive and the right time for Mexico with the weather.

I would maximize the budget and go to Majorca. Much Michelin stars to be had there food wise. Plus it's beautiful.

Look at the "couples"brand in the carribean. I've done a few of the Jamaica ones and they hit your list of requirements. I've also tried the Excellence brand in the Dominican and that was absolutely fabulous. Both brands adults only. Highly recommend

Regarding cruises I would suggest Celebrity for a couple cruising.
I think a couples resort would fit your list of requirements better. I booked Sandals Antigua this morning after reading your thread and thinking back to my Barbados holiday.

We went to Unico in Mexico last September. Loved it. It’s adults only.
Not sure about how much it costs from the UK. Our flights were $300 each and the hotel was just over $100 pp per night.

Cruise Celebrity is excellent as is Holland America, P&O is like Butlins.
Or this is a great place, whilst its very nice a few of the hotels nearby have posher gardens and bigger pools, but I doubt the food would be any better as it was excellent, its a short transfer from the airport but we heard no plane noise, its on the outskirts of the town right on the beach so quiet.

Mexico - Eldorado Royale if you like bigger resorts or Eldorado seaside suites (might be tui blue now) if you like smaller ones. X

Not AI but as good as, we went to Penang in Malaysia in late Feb a few years ago.
Lovely weather (though a bit humid). We stayed in the rasa sayang hotel. They have an adults only block which gives you access to the adults only pool .... can't remember if there was a swim up bar but you did get free soft drinks and fruit kebab by the pool. Cold towels were brought round too.
The adults only block also had the option of breakfast at the posh restaurant rather than just the buffet (which was awesome anyway). You also got included an afternoon tea and hot snacks and unlimited Prosecco in the early evening. We went out for dinner most night but honestly you could have just done with the food included. There was so much of it.
Not sure about flights as we flew from Hong Kong but likely you'd have to change at Kuala Lumpur (fab city btw if you wanted a longer layover there)
Penang is a cool island and George Town has a nice museum and lovely street art. Food in Malaysia is just wonderful.

Depends on the cruise line really. Azamara, Silversea, Windstar, Celebrity, Holland America and P&O will offer a pretty sedate experience

Frymetothemoon I was on Anthem of the Seas (RC) in July and the solarium there was so lovely and peaceful. There were many jacuzzis and staff taking drinks orders. It was so lovely looking out at the sea sitting on all the different types of padded sun loungers.
