Not sure this is the best location to post as I'm not limited to the Caribbean islands... However, let's try this...

I need suggestions and advice.

Looking to spend 7-10 days alone just husband and wife (no kids) on a trip that will be once in a lifetime opportunity to escape the kids for a full week or longer.

Trip will take place in July 2020.
Flying from: JFK (or similar)
Airline: Any but have Jetblue Mosaic

Only thing my wife wants is sun and water. Just a relaxing day in the heat with a NICE pool and drinks is enough to make her happy.

In the past we always limited ourselves to places that had kosher food (ie: Miami, Vegas, Cancun, San Juan, Bahamas etc) but she wants something more "exotic" but at the same time the trip is longer than the average vacation we take (2-3 days) so food may be a significant factor.

Was thinking of Hawaii or Maldives, but not sure of the food situation and again having "decent" food options is an important factor on a 10 day trip (as oppose to a 2-3 day trip where we can live on fruits and yogurts).

Any suggestions? Any ideas? Any tips?

It will be greatly appreciated.

Ritz Carlton Ras el Khaima resorts (there’s one on the beach and one in the desert) or al maha resort (Marriott as well), base room is a villa with a pool gorgeous setting, very luxurious and really good staff -that you won’t find in the Caribbean- super relaxing plus some cool excursions available.

In terms of kosher you can either bring your own food, get from one of the local kosher eateries or you might also get the hotel to make you some stuff like eggs etc especially if you speak with them in advance (al maha is all inclusive, ritz should give free breakfast to Marriott gold)
