Wondering where to go on your honeymoon? We have you covered. The romance experts at SheKnows have handpicked seven spectacular spots for the ultimate post-wedding experience.
From Arizona to Bora Bora, and adventure to total relaxation, these hotels offer something for every couple.
If you’re looking for romance and luxury, this exquisite resort on the southernmost tip of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula in Cabo San Lucas is for you. Capella is made especially romantic by its geographic privacy. In order to get to the resort, you travel through a 300-meter torch-lit tunnel carved through a mountain, the only access to what has to be Mexico’s most exclusive hotel property. Each bedroom and suite boasts its own terrace featuring a private plunge pool with gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean and white-sand beaches. Enjoy a private dip on your own terrace, accompanied by delicious room service and a crisp bottle of Champagne. You might even spot a humpback whale -- they congregate around the hotel’s peninsula and are frequently spotted from the terrace.
Located in Southern Thailand in Krabi, along the Andaman Sea, Phulay Bay is a must-stop honeymoon spot. The scenery alone is worth a trip (think aquamarine water set against jaw-dropping limestone karsts). Each of Phulay Bay’s 54 one-bedroom villas is tucked away and features a private plunge pool, enclosed garden and personal butler service (so you and your hubby don't have to worry about a thing), all of which create a sense of seclusion and privacy ideal for newlyweds. The beds at Phulay Bay are some of the most comfortable in the world with signature double-king mattresses (two king mattresses custom-sewn together) perfect for those who want to (ahem) spend a little extra time in them.
Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain
Famous honeymooners at this desert resort include Beyoncé and Jay-Z who rented a private mountainside estate on the property, one of several accommodation options for newlyweds to choose from. Home to an expansive spa, stunning infinity pool, award-winning cuisine from Executive Chef (and Food Network star) Beau MacMillan and spectacular views of Camelback Mountain, this is the perfect post-wedding paradise for newlyweds to escape.
Jamaica Inn is a gorgeous, secluded resort in Ocho Rios, ideal for anyone looking for sand, sun and total relaxation. It’s also where the one and only Marilyn Monroe honeymooned with husband Arthur Miller. The most romantic abode on the property is the newly constructed Cottage 7, with a private infinity pool that fades into a private stretch of Caribbean beach (talk about bliss). Couples can order room service the entire time they're on their honeymoon and never have to get dressed or even leave the cottage. Everything you need -- from cocktails to couples massages -- can come to you!
Tierra Patagonia Hotel & Spa
This spectacular resort is nestled on the edge of Torres del Paine National Park and UNESCO Biosphere Reserve on the shores of gorgeous Lake Sarmiento in Chile. Tierra Patagonia offers the ideal mix of adventure, pampering, relaxation and natural beauty in a secluded environment that’s just perfect for any newlyweds. The intimate 40-room resort offers all-inclusive packages featuring customized excursions that showcase the wildlife, culture and wow-worthy natural beauty of Chilean Patagonia.
Eden Roc Renaissance
Overlooking world-renowned Miami Beach, the Eden Roc Renaissance is one stylish spot to honeymoon. Effortlessly blending iconic style, modern architecture and contemporary glamour, it’s not hard to see why newlyweds would feel good about celebrating their nuptials here. Situated on one of the most coveted stretches of oceanfront real estate, if you’re looking for a beach escape that doesn’t mean flying too far, this is an ideal option.
Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora
Located in French Polynesia, Trip Advisor recently named this fabulous spot the #1 Romance Hotel in the World. Stay in your own private overwater bungalow (you’ll want to move in, trust us), get pampered in the overwater couples spa suite, take a dip in the infinity pool, enjoy private romantic dinners on the beach and snorkel in the on-site lagoon sanctuary. If that’s not a perfect honeymoon, we don’t what is.
