It’s the romantic escape you’ve been dreaming of for ages. Imagine long walks down stunning white sand beaches, a celebratory bottle of champagne welcoming you in your suite, and a private plunge pool beckoning you right outside your bedroom, where you can watch the sun sink into the sea alone together at last. That’s the kind of experience you deserve on your honeymoon! And that’s exactly what you’ll receive when you choose to host your special romantic getaway at one of the best honeymoon resorts in the world. Before you choose your honeymoon resort, though, be sure to think about the following considerations. Then, check out our picks for five of the best honeymoon resorts for the ultimate romantic escape!
What to Consider as You Choose Your Dream Honeymoon Resort
1. How much time can you take off for your honeymoon?
Keep in mind that many of the best honeymoon resorts take a long flight to reach, like the secluded, luxurious overwater bungalows in the South Pacific.
If you have the time, then it may be worth it to make the trek to pure honeymoon paradise.
Only a Week or Two to Spend?
If you only have a week or two to spend on your honeymoon, though, look for something spectacular closer to home. The overwater villas at Sandals resorts and the palafitos at El Dorado Maroma in Mexico mean you don’t have to take a 13+ hour flight to get that overwater experience!Only have a week for your honeymoon?

2. What kind of honeymoon “vibe” are you after?
A honeymoon is NOT a one-size-fits-all experience.
Think about you travel personality, likes, and dislikes as you plan your honeymoon.
Want to kick back and relax with your beau?
A luxury adult-only all-inclusive resort may be just the ticket.
Looking for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure that takes you through breathtaking cultural capitals?
A luxurious river cruise or custom itinerary will take you exactly where you want to go.
3. What are you willing to splurge on?
If you’re ever going to truly pamper yourself, make it on your honeymoon!
Splurging for a few extras here and there can really make a difference in how luxurious your honeymoon feels. We recommend exploring what upgrades are available at the best honeymoon resorts — things like butler service, private transfers, and a private candlelit dinner on the beach elevate a honeymoon to a “wow!” experience.
And of course, it pays to book the honeymoon suite, which is often the most breathtaking, romantic room in the house!

One of the finest all-inclusive resorts in Mexico just introduced something honeymooners will love — luxurious overwater villas.
With modern design touches and endless views over the vast blue sea, these overwater options in the breathtaking Riviera Maya region make for the ultimate romantic escape.
Called “palafitos,” the bungalows feature sophisticated seaside interiors and your own private plunge pool so you can amp up the romance.
3. Hermitage Bay Resort
Situated where the verdant mountains meet the deep blue sea, this upscale resort in Antigua hits all the right notes for a secluded honeymoon getaway.
If you’re really looking to get away from it all, opt for an upgraded villa tucked away in the mountainside — you and your beau will feel like you’re worlds away from all your worries, here together in a pure island paradise.
More of a beach bum?
Hermitage Bay’s beachfront villas are just as impressive … and lead you right to the soft powder white sand.

Each special suite come with luxurious design details (like an ultra pampering rain shower) and Sandals’ signature Butler service.
5. Sandals Royal Caribbean
Another chic option for honeymooners craving that classic Tahiti vibe closer to home, Sandals Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay, Jamaica, recently introduced its own luxe overwater bungalows.
See-through glass floors, beautifully tiled soaking tubs, an over-the-water hammock for two, and Sandals’s signature butler service all add up to one unforgettable honeymoon vacation.
