Opt for something different for your honeymoon by whisking your sweetie off to an exotic locale you haven't seen overexposed in the wedding magazines. You’ll both go bananas for these tropical destinations!
Ani Villas

The island of Anguilla

What to do: Paradise awaits you on this breathtaking Caribbean island. Consider the endless variety of activities, from snorkeling to sailing to horseback riding, beach barhopping, sightseeing and more. One thing every couple must do is catch the shuttle out to Sandy Island, a small, intimate cay off Sandy Ground beach in Anguilla. Romance is bound to blossom in this place that boasts a single restaurant and has that quintessential Robinson Crusoe feeling. Dreamy, right?

Where to stay: Ani Villas or Modena Villa

Why we love it: Anguilla features 33 stunning, picturesque white beaches, all with their own unique look and vibe.

Desroches Island

Desroches Island

What to do: If you and your hubby’s idea of an exotic honeymoon includes sun, sand and a gorgeous, private, remote island, then this is the destination for you. Located in the Indian Ocean’s group of Amirante Islands, which are part of the Outer Islands of the Seychelles, this perfect paradise offers honeymooners the rare opportunity to explore one of the most untouched islands still around today. Tap into your adventurous side by going game fishing, or dive down under and observe a natural marine sanctuary. Romance awaits you at every corner.

Where to stay: Desroches Island Resort (the only hotel here!)

Why we love it: Besides the fact that it’s a tranquil haven for lovers, honeymooners get 40 percent off the bride’s accommodation, plus a complimentary couple’s massage.

Casa Palopo

Lake Atitlan, Guatemala

What to do: Known as the deepest lake in Central America (and renowned as one of the most beautiful in the world), this awe-inspiring body of water is surrounded by three volcanoes. Yes, three! Not only are the views spectacular, but there are also plenty of things for newlyweds to do, such as hiking, kayaking, ziplining and shopping. Or couples can take a market tour of one of the surrounding villages to experience authentic Guatemalan culture. The sunrises and sunsets here are simply unbelievable.

Where to stay: Casa Palopó

Why we love it: Despite being one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, we bet you've never heard of anyone going on their honeymoon here. This hidden gem is ripe with romance and the perfect place for lovers to celebrate their recent union.
