21 Best Honeymoon Packages and All-Inclusive Resorts
Let's face it: One of the best parts about planning a wedding is that you get to take an awesome vacation after your "I dos." And these days, more resorts are catering to newlyweds by offering exclusive honeymoon packages with lots of romantic extras. Or go all out with an all-inclusive resort. Our suggestions of the best honeymoon packages below are far from the average buffet and watered-down cocktail.
South Pacific Honeymoon Packages and All-Inclusive Resorts
The South Pacific contains some of the best honeymoon destinations, including Fiji and Tahiti. It's made up of clusters of intimate resorts, small peaceful village, and miles of quiet pristine beaches where honeymooners can post up in some seriously dreamy digs. Many properties boast overwater suites: traditional pandanus-leaf thatched-roof bungalows or villas that sit above the turquoise waters. In these accommodations, tropical fish swim below glass panels under the coffee table, at the foot of the bed or even in the bathroom, so the blues of the lagoon reflect and fill the room, bringing the ocean inside. The best time to travel to the South Pacific is during the high season months of June to September, with shoulder months May and October still having pleasant weather without the crowd.
Fiji Honeymoon Packages
Likuliku Lagoon Resort: This property boasts overwater bungalows (or as they say in Fiji, bures) that are so romantic there's no way you'll want to do anything but dive off your private deck into the crystal waters, lounge in your luxury pad and repeat. But if you decide to join civilization on your honeymoon, a Pacific Rim restaurant overlooking the ocean and an exquisite spa help to pass those romantic, lazy days. It's pricey, but you'll see why the minute you arrive via helicopter or private speedboat. Here, rates start at $931 per room, per night, and include all meals, a welcome refreshment and lei on arrival, a sarong, bottled water, use of nonmotorized water sports, Wi-Fi and an invitation to the weekly cocktail party (Fridays only).
Yasawa Island Resort & Spa: This one-island resort boasts just 18 luxury bure suites where couples on their honeymoon can lounge under thatched roofs, perfectly positioned for complete privacy. Bonus: The honeymoon bure is hidden at the end of a deserted white beach and features a horizon pool overlooking the ocean. Channel your inner '80s movie star with a trip to the nearby Blue Lagoon Caves. Here, guests can swim within the hidden chambers as Brooke Shields did in the wildly popular movie. Rates for a beachfront bure suite start at $776 per night, per room and include all meals, snacks and nonalcoholic beverages, all activities (except spa treatments, fishing and diving), Wi-Fi and a three-hour excursion to the Blue Lagoon.
Tahiti Honeymoon Packages and All-Inclusive Resorts
InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa: Located alongside the turquoise lagoon, with ocean-cloaked views of Moorea, the InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa is where most couples begin their dip into a South Pacific honeymoon—it's just over a mile from the airport. All rooms and bungalows come outfitted with a terrace or private balcony and South Pacific furnishings. Honeymoon couples are especially pampered here, with complimentary packages including a welcome gift upon arrival, champagne with a three-day stay, breakfast in bed with a five-day stay and a complimentary dinner when staying a week. A romantic dinner can also be served on the terrace of your overwater bungalow, complete with an aperitif in a coconut vessel.
The Brando: Set on the atoll of Tetiaroa, a cluster of islands purchased by Marlon Brando, this property is just 30 miles north of Tahiti, but super exclusive. The Brando is accessible only by private plane and welcomes honeymooners to its 35 villas, each with a sprawling bedroom, sitting room, media room, outdoor bathtub, terrace and private plunge pool. There's also a floating garden and eco-friendly spa, both powered by coconut oil and solar energy. The all-inclusive resort package includes all meals (even room service), daily minibar replenishment, nightly turndown, Wi-Fi water and fitness activities (such as boat excursions and bikes) and a 50-minute spa treatment for one person per room, per day. Rates start at $2,266 per night.
New Zealand Honeymoon Packages and All-Inclusive Resorts
New Zealand's compact size lets honeymoon couples experience dramatic alpine landscapes, quiet beaches, sparkling lakes and vineyards—all in a single trip. Because the country is in the Southern hemisphere, seasons are the opposite of the United States, so their summers are December through February. It's also the most crowded and priced higher during that time. A "shoulder season" from March to May and October to November has temperate weather with the benefit of less crowds and lower pricing.
Riverrun: Set amid 500 acres of riverside—with mountain views for days—Riverrun is a peaceful luxury lodge near Lake Wanaka. In fact, this scenic alpine property played host to Prince Harry, who was perfectly content to laze around—perhaps in the stylish rooms, complete with palatial bathrooms, all-white furnishings and touches of timber. The three-night honeymoon package includes dinner at the lodge on any one night of your stay, a complimentary bottle of Central Otago pinot noir (or local champagne), evening appetizers, breakfast daily and a stunning helicopter excursion across Lake Wanaka and into the Southern Alps, with multiple landing opportunities to explore. This New Zealand honeymoon package starts at $824 per person for three nights.
The Resurgence Lodge: Nestled into 50 acres of native bush and snug between two national parks, the Resurgence Lodge is an adults-only, luxury eco-lodge set in New Zealand's stunning wilderness. Here, honeymoon couples stay in stand-alone "bush lodges" that come equipped with plush bedding, a separate living space and private deck. Ideal for the active couple, the lodge boasts three miles of hiking trails, along with a pool, spa, gym and readily available bikes. And it's an easy distance from Abel Tasman, Golden Bay, Kahurangi National Park and the art, wine and cycling trails around the Nelson region. The romance and honeymoon package includes two nights bush lodge accommodations, full daily breakfast, a chilled bottle of bubbly on arrival, a romantic candlelit dinner, two one-hour massages, and tastings and lunch at the winery café. The price is $1,095 per person for two days and two nights.
European Honeymoon Packages
For those who enjoy a dose of culture, fine dining and relaxing beaches, Europe is chock-full of choices for the honeymooner. Paris, dubbed the City of Love, is pretty much the perfect backdrop for a romantic honeymoon: snuggling in a cozy bistro by day and walking under the sparkling lights of the Eiffel Tower by night. And there's a reason songs have been written about France's charming capital—including visiting Paris in the springtime, as that season has the perfect weather. On the opposite spectrum, countries like Greece offer blue waters with iconic whitewashed backgrounds. The cuisine, seafood in particular, is super-fresh—and especially good with a dose of ouzo.
Greece Honeymoon Packages and All-Inclusive Resorts
Grace Mykonos: An exclusive boutique hotel in Mykonos, the Grace Mykonos offers prime sea views, high above the protected beaches of Agios Stefanos—and it's just a five-minute jaunt from balcony to waves.

The Mykonos honeymoon suite is located on the highest level of the hotel with its own private terrace and plunge pool. The Grace Mykonos Romance Experience package includes in-room champagne, strawberries and flowers upon arrival, a Grace Restaurant four-course dinner with a bottle of wine, a luxury boat trip and in-room gift.

Paris Honeymoon Packages and All-Inclusive Resorts
Hôtel Plaza Athénée: Since 1913, the Hôtel Plaza Athénée has been the poster child for all-things luxury and the epitome of Parisian chic. You may remember the cameo in Sex and the City? This is the place. Here, rooms come dressed in rich silks, damask, rare woods and velvet—many with unparalleled views of the Eiffel Tower. Naturally, at a hotel so fine and in a city so well known for food, it's fitting that chef Alain Ducasse would oversee all of the hotel's food and beverage operations. The Romantic Offer package comes with a bottle of champagne and chocolates upon arrival, American breakfast for two, and access to the sauna and hammam in the Dior Spa.
USA Honeymoon Packages
Honeymooning stateside can be totally romantic. Be it a cozy bed-and-breakfast in the mountains or the bright lights of Las Vegas. There are loads of options and vast lands to explore in the United States. Florida, a beach-lover's favorite, offers oceanside cottages that feel as if you've been transported to the South Pacific. And of course, there's Hawaii: a cluster of islands that's practically synonymous with jet-setting honeymoons—complete with fragrant floral leis, tropical mai tais and hula dancing.
Florida Honeymoon Packages and All Inclusive Resorts

Accessible only by boat or seaplane, this oasis is plopped on a 5.5-acre private reserve and allows no more than 60 guests at one time. Here, thatched-roof private bungalows come equipped with a private veranda, outdoor shower and beds draped in gauzy butterfly netting—but they're void of phones and television.

With a lack of radios, clocks and TVs, it's all about privacy and seclusion.

Rates start at $950 for double inclusive.
Las Vegas Honeymoon Packages and All-Inclusive Resorts
Las Vegas, with its bright lights and 24-hour excitement, is the perfect destination for honeymoon couples who prefer late-night action over lounging on a beach. From celebrity-chef-focused dining to year-round perfect pool weather—and of course the casino action—there's stuff to do for any couple, any hour of the day. Bonus: Las Vegas often runs discounts on incredibly plush hotels, so finding a stateside budget honeymoon—that feels super-high-end—isn't out of the question.
Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino: Picture the bright lights of Vegas with a dash of Parisian romance—that's the Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino. Honeymooners can hit the casino and take in a Vegas-style show before a postdinner walk along the French-inspired neighborhoods—complete with a replica of the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe.
