14 Hotels With Epic Honeymoon Suites
Let's be honest: every dynamic honeymoon involves an equally-memorable stay. Plush or well-serviced accommodations are what couples will most remember, and often cherish, about their honeymoons. Finding the best-in-class lodging means you can technically resort to any five-star property and call it a day, but what makes hotels with honeymoon suites truly exceptional?
An outstanding honeymoon suite is tailored to romance and allows you to be fully present with your partner. Beyond private plunge pools and spacious indoor-outdoor lounges, high-end touches like Frette slippers and discerning turndown services are what elevates one honeymoon suite from the next. Many of the following options were hand-selected due to its focus on design layouts for two. Many are so impressive and posh that you likely won't even want to leave your room. Explore our list of the best honeymoon suites around the world–you won't want to leave from the moment you've checked in.
Romantic Hotel Honeymoon Suites in the US
Sometimes, an exceptional honeymoon suite is known to drive the actual honeymoon location. For example, a spacious and scenic suite overlooking New York City's Central Park–especially when it snows–may give winter-adoring couples the experience of honeymooning in a snow globe. A stay at a luxury suite overlooking Wailea Beach offers couples prime views of storybook sunsets and happy humpback whales breaching the surface of the Pacific. Across top honeymoon destinations in the US, including both urban and countryside retreats, honeymoon suites include an added layer of luxury and service. Here are the finest picks for discerning couples.
The Four Seasons Maui at Wailea, Maui, Hawaii
Fun fact: Season One of HBO's White Lotus was shot at the Four Seasons Maui and of course, couples (not-solely-fictional) are clammoring to stay at this gorgeous property on Wailea Beach. Perhaps the ultimate honeymoon resort in Hawaii, the adults-only serenity pool is the place that continues to attract romantic honeymooners and trendy couples too.
The Ritz-Carlton Central Park, New York, New York
It's tough to find a terrible view among the suites of this iconic hotel in the Big Apple. Located right on Central Park South and Sixth Avenue, this luxury property was redesigned within the last five years with upgraded rooms and amenities like plush hotel robes and elegant Frette slippers, that define the Ritz portfolio. Suites start at 790 square feet—a massive space among New York hotels if you ask us, and bookings offer entry to the exclusive Club Lounge, where couples can enjoy daily breakfast, lunch and dinner presentations. Before heading out for the evening, indulge in a caviar and champagne presentation with the club concierge, or order a cocktail at the lobby bar. After all: people-watching is a sport in the City that Never Sleeps.
Amangiri, Four Points, Utah
Aman properties were largely found in the Middle East, but this privately-owned, top-tier hotel group has solidified its footprint across US tourism with its flagship property stateside. Natural walls, curved edges across buildings and pathways, and architectural minimalism nod to the raw and untainted beauty of the surrounding region. Each suite includes an outdoor lounge for sightseeing and a fireplace for staying warm. As Aman is a five-star resort that leans into wellness, staffers will curate experiences like sound baths and rare excursions. Antelope Canyon is an accessible drive away and evenings are spent unwinding with meals under the celestial heavens.
The Faena Miami Beach, Miami, Florida
Alan Faena's version of hospitality is vivid and sultry–which explains why the honeymoon suites in the Faena are among the finest in the country. With en-suite bathrooms, heated floors and other design flourishes that greet guests upon command (more on that once you book a stay), the Faena is considered one of the pinnacle properties across all of Miami Beach. If you decide to step out of the suite in favor of the Miami sunshine, all guests have access to the Faena's private beach, along with its impeccable towel and umbrella service. Damien Hirst's tribute to the woolly mammoth ("Gone but Not Forgotten") also welcomes couples in the courtyard, along with additional art sprinkled throughout the property's restaurants. Indulgence is encouraged.
The Beekman Hotel, New York, New York
The top floor of the Beekman Hotel in Lower Manhattan hosts one of the city's coolest suites, The Thompson Suite, complete with an outdoor terrace and an indoor lobby that dazzles just about every guest. Lavish and adorned with mahogany leather and sleek marble design touches, the 1,000-square-foot scale is stately and a rare find in Lower Manhattan.

Inside, you'll find elegantly appointed rooms and a full-service kitchen. Amenities include private chef service, if you so choose, as well as one-on-one yoga sessions on the terrace.
Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, Maui, Hawaii
An iconic property on the island, the Grand Wailea's Napua Club has oceanfront suites that face the legendary Wailea Beach. Each suite comes with a private lanai (a porch or veranda), plus access to the property's fitness center, concierge, along with 55-inch flat-screen TVs and Keurig coffeemakers. If you're looking for additional suite options, the Wailea Beach Resort, a Marriott property in Maui, is another luxury property that features indoor-outdoor experiences like its oceanfront lanai.
