Rosewood Mayakoba, Riviera Maya, Mexico
The best part of the gorgeous Deluxe Overwater Lagoon suite is the super-secluded, serene outdoor shower. The second-best part? The private plunge pool on the suite’s terrace, which overlooks picturesque mangroves. Your butler (trust us—it will feel like he knows what you want before you do!) will bring you anything you need, from homemade guacamole and a refill on your room’s supplied bottle of top-shelf tequila to chocolate-covered strawberries and champagne.
Shangri-La Paris, Paris, France
This suite is a super-splurge—but we just had to show it to you. Amour already seeps out of Paris’s pores, and the elegant 1,175-square-foot one-bedroom Suite Chaillot room—situated in the former mansion of Napoleon Bonaparte’s great-nephew—takes romance to scandalous heights with in-your-face views of the city’s iconic symbol of love, the Eiffel Tower. In what feels like your own Parisian apartment, you can gaze at the monument (and each other) snuggled beneath a cloud-like feather duvet or while sipping champagne on your corner terrace. It sure beats standing in its mile-long lines—not so romantic.
Cocoa Island By Como, Makunufushi, Maldives
Picture this: The two of you are dropped off by boat onto Cocoa Island, one of the tiniest, most unspoiled Maldivian islands in the far-flung Indian Ocean. You quickly check into one of the fabulously sexy rooms, like the Dhoni Suite that juts over a turquoise lagoon, providing infinite water views, complete privacy, a truly unique ambience (each suite is styled after local dhonis, or fishing boats) and luxe details that you might not expect from the rustic chic exterior (think: an all-white Balinese daybed, 42-inch plasma-screen satellite television, in-room Wi-Fi access and air conditioning). Then get ready to connect like castaways.
Burj Al Arab, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
You’ll feel like royalty at Jumeirah’s Burj Al Arab’s Royal two-bedroom suite. Your private elevator opens to a bi-level world of opulence (there’s a 24-karat iPad and 17 choices for pillows, for starters). In this 2,600-square-foot oasis, you’ll find two master bedrooms, two Jacuzzis and a movie room (crazy, right?). Again, pretty insanely priced but we had to share.
Palms Casino Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada
Christian and Anastasia of Fifty Shades of Grey could have more than a little bit of fun in this totally over-the-top, extremely evocative room (appropriately named The Erotic Suite) in the Palms’s Fantasy Tower—and so would any newlyweds with a healthy, um, imagination. Go ahead and suds up in the unique shower that comes with sexy mood lighting, then take a spin on the room’s round rotating king bed with a mirror overhead (we couldn’t make this stuff up if we tried!). Remember: What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
Halekulani Hotel, Honolulu, Hawaii
Discreetly tucked off the shores of honeymoon hot spot Waikiki Beach, the ocean-level, 2,365-square-foot Orchid suite allows newlyweds to completely relax in a personal tropical paradise (there’s a private lanai and garden) with an almost-too-pretty-to-believe postcard view of the majestic Diamond Head crater. If that’s not enough to entertain you two, you don’t have to leave the room just yet—have your coziest date night ever in the luxe home theater.
The Caves, Negril, Jamaica
Hovering over the Caribbean Sea on dramatic cliffs, the quiet and quaint Butterfly Suite at The Caves resort is a serene second-level hideaway. Even though it’s an all-inclusive resort (perfect for honeymooners looking to avoid thinking about, well, anything other than each other), you won’t find any over-enthusiastic entertainment staff trying to get you to join in on pool games. But cliff jumping into the ocean is definitely an option.
Twin Farms, Barnard, Vermont
Set within 300 serene woodsy acres, this all-inclusive resort’s contemporary Aviary Cottage is stylishly outfitted with floor-to-ceiling windows, a sleek red-leather king bed and an indoor stone hot tub and fireplace (seriously, you could legitimately spend your entire honeymoon here—and we wouldn’t blame you one bit!). Relax after wedding planning (and finally laugh about that crazy thing your cousin did at your reception!) over a glass of vino in summer or a spiked cocoa in winter.
Nayara Springs, La Fortuna, Costa Rica
Secluded by the lush jungle foliage of Arenal Volcano National Park, the über-private Springs Villa at this adults-only boutique hotel will instantly transform your honeymoon into a luxe Tarzan-and-Jane fantasy vacay. Inside, you’ll find a dreamy four-poster bed swathed in netting and strewn with rose petals by your private attendant. Outdoors, you’ll enjoy the personal hammock for lounging with your better half, friendly resident monkeys and a plunge pool fed by nearby mineral hot springs.
St. Regis Bal Harbour, Miami Beach, Florida
South Beach has its fair share of white-hot hotels, like the Delano and Fountainbleau, but if you’re not looking for the South Beach club scene (or to venture out of your room at all), head north to the St. Regis. Specifically, book the ultrachic Grand Luxe oceanfront room that towers over the bustling, jet-set coastal playground of Bal Harbour (on the northernmost tip of Miami Beach). Seductively glam metallic décor, 400-count luxurious bed linens, a supersize oceanfront balcony off the bedroom and the ability to call on the resort’s super-capable—and always attentive—team of butlers 24/7 will make leaving your room seem like a crazy concept.
