To the entire magnificent staff at Little Palm Island: Many may describe a vacation, a trip, or even a wedding as being paradisal -- but they were not at the "real" Paradise called Little Palm Island!!! There just are not words to do justice as it was truly a personal experience for me in every way- the wedding of my son and his partner, known as "The Misters". The first person we met was Susan Howarth who took care of our car and luggage. She was so engaging, I liked her immediately. From there we went on the boat and were shown the grounds as well as our fabulous villa. Every staff member was so wonderful to us all..superior in all respects. The wait staff were all amazing. ..And the chef, whew, OMG, just stellar to say the least...and the decadent wedding cakes...Chef, you are indeed a genius!!! The sunset wedding was timed perfectly and lasted for all words spoken. As the sunset left our vision, there were many long reddish-pink pointed streamers in the sky. Love and nature "found" me as never before. I must return to your "Paradise" to "get lost" again. Thank you for your most impressive organization of this memorable event that meant so much to all of us. Sincerely, Linda
My wife Merle and I have wondered for more years than we can count just what Little Palm Island has to offer. What to our pleasure was the receipt of our invitation to the wonderful weekend wedding celebration of our dear friends this past March 7-10. Our fondest fantasies of what we might experience paled in comparison to the marvelousness of our actual stay. The nuptials, of course, magnified and multiplied our experience of the place, but we would be remiss if we did not take a moment to mention the setting, the service, the sunswept beaches, seclusion and surfeit of delights which awaited us. We look forward to our next stay at Little Palm Island. Daniel and Merle
Sherrie and I would like to thank you and the entire LPI tam for providing us and our friends an extraordinary five days. We were sad to leave and will count the days until we make it back. It was far and above the best vacation we’ve ever taken. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Chip and Sherrie
Thank you so much for all your help and attention to detail in helping me prepare for our wedding at LPI! Everything was spectacular and way above and beyond what I dreamed of. The entire staff at LPI was amazing! We were so over-the-moon with all the attention to details. It will be an event we will remember and cherish forever! Our guests were also delighted with the whole event. My in-laws say they feel like it was a dream! Please thank everyone who helped us. I am sure that Rob and I will be back to celebrate. Hopefully, sooner rather than later! Thank you again and again.
Nerilda and Rob
If someone told me I could plan the most perfect wedding imaginable with one phone call I would think they were mad! But it’s true! You can! And it was flawless! Many thanks to you and your staff for creating the ultimate wedding. I’m not sure how you pulled off the perfect sunset that evening, but good work! A wedding on Little Palm Island is a treasure forever.
Words can't do justice for the experience that you created for Linda and I. Everything was better than I expected. I had approached this with the intent of doing something special for Linda. However the outcome was nothing short of an experience that neither of us will ever forget. The intimacy of the simple and perfect personal experience was what I could only have imagined, but the three of you created and made it a reality. Simple and Perfect!!!!
Thanks to all of you.
I was looking for the perfect spot for a small, elegant wedding within a very limited timeframe. The wedding experience at Little Palm Island met these needs perfectly! Susan Howarth was extremely responsive, and knew exactly what I was looking for after one brief phone call. Susan took care of all of the details, from confirming our desired wedding date, arranging for the Captain that conducted the ceremony, arranging for my hair, makeup and nails to be done on the property, arranging for a bouquet of tulips (even though they were out of season!) and ensuring we had the perfect table for dinner afterwards. Every detail was taken care of; we even had a congratulatory message on our dinner menu, and a "Just Married" sign by our room! We really appreciated all of the little details that made our day so special. And the best part was, there was zero stress involved for my husband and I; we just had to show up and enjoy the day. Susan was also kind enough to upgr ade our room to a suite; as a world wide traveller and frequent guest of 5-star resorts, I have to say Suite #13 is one of the most stunning rooms I have ever stayed in. The room includes a private fire pit, jacuzzi, hammock, lounge chairs, outdoor shower....there are too many perks to mention!
Thanks to the staff and especially Susan for making this such a memorable, romantic experience. We look forward to coming back on our first anniversary!

My husband and I recently eloped on Little Palm Island. We chose LPI because it has the feel of a remote Caribbean island but is in the United States making it accessible for future trips and anniversaries.
There is only one word to describe our wedding experience: “Magical.” It was far better than anything we ever could have imagined. From the time we stepped foot on the Island until the time we left, we were in a trance of serenity, romance and joy.
Susan Howarth, our wedding coordinator (and now adopted family member), surprised us with an upgraded thatched-roof suite with breathtaking views of the ocean, sunset dock and hammocks and fire pits scattered along the shore. Outside of our suite hung a wooden sign displaying our last names – as if to welcome us home. Inside was a bottle of complimentary champagne, fresh fruit, a handwritten card from Susan and personalized stationary.
The next day, we exchanged vows on the beach at sunset. Following pictures, we had a private dinner for two complete with rose petals strewn along the torch-lit sand, Key Deer as attendants and custom menus. It was a real life fairytale and a night we will never ever forget. Our honeymoon over the next few days was perfection to the last and tiniest detail. From the “Just Married” sign hanging outside our suite, handwritten cards and trinkets at turndown, stationary with our married name and amazing cuisine – including Chef’s creation from the red snapper my husband caught off the dock – to the first-class and unmatchable staff, we felt as though we were the only people on the Island.
When we had to leave and return to reality, our hearts were heavy. They lightened, however, when we got into the car and discovered a travel-sized bottle of LPI’s signature fragrance and a notecard summing it up perfectly: “Don’t be sad that it is over; be happy that it happened.” We are forever grateful to Susan and everyone at LPI for giving us the wedding and honeymoon of our dreams. We look forward to our next visit and highly recommend LPI to anyone craving a respite in paradise.

Our wedding ceremony and night were magical! The whole weekend was magical! We had THE best time! Karen was amazing, just like everyone at LPI. And, our accommodations... well, WOW. We truly cannot thank you enough for the upgrade. We will never forget that suite or your sweet gesture. Truly, my only regret is that we didn't stay the extra day. What a mistake - just like you said! But, it just means that we'll be back even sooner.
And, THANK YOU for all your seamless, amazing help and arrangements. From soup to nuts, it was a perfect weekend that Eric and I will never forget.
All our best, Catie and Eric
Dear Susan and the LPI Staff,
While this card is not nearly big enough to express our true and heartfelt thanks to all of you, it was important for us to acknowledge the wonderful and meaningful work you do, most of which is behind the scenes – but it does not go unnoticed and is felt by all your guests. Thank you for taking such good care of Evan, myself and ALL our guests during our wedding stay. We will forever be grateful for all you do.
THANK YOU! Amy and Evan
Hi Susan, We just wanted to thank you and your team for all you did to bring together such a wonderful wedding. We’re already cherishing the memories, and planning many return trips to Little Palm Island to celebrate our anniversary as the years pass!
Tony and I would like to thank you for making all our dreams come true on Little Palm Island. It was truly a fairytale and something we will remember forever. The food, staff, cocktails, gorgeous scenery, EVERYTHING was absolutely perfect. We are missing the special treatment everyday but can’t wait to visit you again in the future.
Love to you! Doree and Tony
We cannot thank you enough for all you and the fabulous staff did to make our wedding so special. We are still basking in the glow of our magical experience here and we will be for some time to come. Thank you for engineering our incredible day! And thank you very much to a few notable folks that without, our day and stay would have not been the same – Karen, Todd and Lizzie. You have a very special group here and we can’t wait to come back soon.
Heart felt thanks, Gavin and Ivor
Susan, There are no words to say how grateful we are for you and Little Palm Island for making our wedding even better than we could have imagined. Thank you so much and we can’t wait to come back!
This 4 days wedding week-end was a PURE DREAM. We had this dream and it became true...So many thanks. And it became true in a PERFECT way : everything came out right, outstanding, and you Susan, first, to be shared with all LPI's team, deserve a standing ovation : not only were you open to any suggestion and idea ... and we had some crazy fantastic ones over the stay ... not only was the execution totally professional in all fields from set ups to cooking to music to all activities, team dedication etc ...but you added on top of all that personal involvement, personal enthusiasm and affection. It makes all the difference!
Magical, wonderful and perfect – what more can we say? We cannot thank you and Karen enough for handling everything for us, the entire weekend surpassed our every expectation. See you for our first anniversary.
Little Palm Ialnd was an amazing experience that exceeded all of our expectations. LPI even controlled Mother Nature for us (LOL). Much like everyone we met on the Island, we will be back.
I wanted to send you a well overdue message to thank you again for everything you did for us. I still can't believe what a beautiful wedding we had, and we keep telling everyone it was all because of you. We plan on coming back to the island on our 5th anniversary and can't wait to see you then. You are a gem. Say hi to the key deer for me!
Susan, I can't thank you enough for everything!! I couldnt have imagined a better destination for our wedding and honeymoon!!! The weather certainly was in our favor!!! We are looking forward to seeing the pictures, I can only imagine how beautiful they are!!! You and the entire staff of little palm were unbelievable!!!!!
