Ben Higgins and Jessica Clarke's life as a married couple is off to a rosy start.

After tying the knot in Tennessee on Nov. 13, The Bachelor alum and the aesthetician jetted off to St. Barts for their honeymoon, which felt like "a weeklong dream," he exclusively shared with E! News. "It's hard to process how incredible the week was." 

The couple stayed in an Océan Lux Piscine Privée suite at Le Barthélemy Hotel & Spa located along the shores of Grand Cul de Sac, where they enjoyed hiking, snorkeling, lounging on the beach and a few couple's massages. "It was adventurous, relaxing and romantic every day," Ben raved, later adding, "We danced, we drank, we ate, we celebrated, we kissed, and we enjoyed every second!"

For the duo, who made their relationship Instagram official in early 2019, the trip was the perfect opportunity to unwind before they begin their next journey of life together.

"This was a trip to focus on slowing down and appreciating the amazing wedding weekend we had with friends and family!" the reality star told E! News. "It was also a time to dream of all the stuff that will be coming our way in the future as a couple," he said. "Finally, it was a week to show our love for each other and the appreciation I have for Jessica as my wife!"

Fun in the Sun

"We got to swim with sea turtles in the clear waters of the Grand Cul de Sac Right off the beach at Le Barthelemy, sunsets...and cocktails, and terrific food everywhere we found ourselves," Ben exclusively told E! News. "This was a special honeymoon and trip and the Le Barthelemy and St. Barts will always have a special place in our lives!"

Hitting the Beach

In addition to sea turtles, the couple saw rays, sea urchins and colorful fish during their snorkel excursion. 

Table for Two

"That's a wrap on the most romantic week," Jessica wrote on Instagram. "We stayed at @lebarthelemy and decided our best bite of food was the truffle pizza they had at @amis_stbarth. I personally loved the mornings and breakfast by the ocean."
