Romantic 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 clamoring to stay at this gorgeous property on Wailea Beach. A stay in one of the club-level suites gives couples access to prime views and unlimited access to the exclusive Club Lounge, adding an even sweeter touch to the Aloha experience. 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.
Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina, Oahu, Hawaii
Book the Penthouse Suite at Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina for gorgeous views of the ocean from your expansive terrace, the perfect spot for soaking up the sun with your sweetheart. 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 and 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.
The Ritz-Carlton New York, 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.
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.
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.
Romantic Honeymoon Suites in the Caribbean and Mexico
Jade Mountain, Soufriere, St. Lucia
St. Lucia is known as one of the most romantic honeymoon destinations in the world, and Jade Mountain is known as one of the most honeymoon-specific properties in the region. Jade Mountain is renowned for its open-air layout nestled on the side of a mountain. Its 29 open-air "sanctuaries" blend indoor and outdoor living spaces seamlessly. Couples have a clear view of the Pitons across the water, whether in bed or from the infinity pool. Breakfast on the private balcony overlooking the Caribbean water is another experience. The honeymoon suites are specially designed so that even with all of that outdoor space, no guest will ever be able to spot you.
One&Only Palmilla, Los Cabos, Mexico
Located on Mexico's Baja Peninsula, the One&Only Casita Suite at the One&Only Palmilla Hotel & Spa is private, luxurious, and oh-so-difficult to leave. A curved infinity pool provides the perfect place for a dip and it's nestled beside a terrace jacuzzi and seating. Thanks to the wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors in the living area and dining room, you have panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean.
Sandals South Coast, White House, Jamaica
Honeymooners have multiple options for private suites when they arrive at a Sandals property. They can either book one of the renovated Rondoval suites at Sandals South Coast or Sandals Saint Lucia, but the most extravagant suite option is the over-the-water bungalows that mimic the Maldvies. Plus, the honeymoon suites at these romance-centric, all-inclusive properties come with full butler service, especially if you and your honey want cold vacation drinks and fresh food served on the beach.
The Lodge at Chaa Creek, San Ignacio, Belize
If you're planning a Belize honeymoon, The Lodge at Chaa Creek is an excellent choice for those who want to be fully immersed in nature, without giving up material comforts. Known as one of the most luxurious and most eco-friendly rainforest boutique hotel resorts in Central America, the lodge's Ix Chel villa makes for an amazing honeymoon experience and includes world-class amenities such as a personal butler, in-room massages, outdoor showers, a private pool, and a private hot tub. When you come indoors for the evening, you still won't be too far away from nature, thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows that provide 180-degree views of the jungle.
Romantic Honeymoon Suites Around the World
If the world is your oyster, honeymoon suites are the finest of pearls. To help you find some of the best honeymoon hotels across the globe, we've handpicked the finest hotels with honeymoon suites, all tailored to romance and luxury.
Tenku no Mori, Kirishima, Japan
A labor of love, this resort's owner spent over 20 years landscaping the nearly 150 acres on which he built this five-villa retreat in the myth-shrouded mountains of the Tagoshima prefecture. Wrapped in glass walls, the two-bedroom Tenku Villa feels like a private island in the sky surrounded by gardens. A hot spring bath on the platform-like wooden deck is the epitome of nature bathing. Couples must work up an appetite hiking the property's trails and then indulge in a terroir-driven kaiseki menu of dishes like udon noodles with sweetfish dashi soup.
The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko, Japan
Just 2.5-hour north of Tokyo, this 94-room resort sits on the eastern shore of Lake Chuzenji within Nikko National Park in the mountainous region of Oku-Nikko. An indoor-outdoor, onsen spa and a kaiseki restaurant that showcases local ingredients are big draws. Splurge on the 3,000-square-foot Ritz-Carlton Suite, which has lake and mountain views, plus its own kitchen, gym, and spa treatment room. A top-of-the-line telescope to get a closer look at Mount Nantai from your private engaway (porch) which runs the entire length of the suite. This area has been a place of mountain worship since the 8th century. Start the day with a monk-led meditation practice then visit UNESCO-designated temples and shrines.
Ashford Castle, Count Mayo Ireland
An 800-year-old castle on a sprawling estate near Galway, Ireland, is home to spacious and well-equipped rooms complete with fireplaces, ornate decor, heated bathroom floors, four-poster king beds, plush linens, and a towel warmer to combat rainy days. Couples who want to experience an even greater slice of history should consider a stay at the property's Kennedy Suite or the Reagan Presidential Suite, both named after the renowned former US leaders who once occupied each room for a visit. That's not the only perk to a suite stay at Ashford Castle: across its 350 acres, couples will find an award-winning spa (complete with a hammam), manicured gardens, a falconry school, morning group dog walks through the woods, an in-house movie theater with nightly screenings, multiple restaurants and bars, and a lakefront view for sightseeing and more.
Rosewood Villa Magna, Madrid, Spain
Marble bathrooms, Natura Bisse bath products, personalized bedding featuring guests' initials, a dedicated concierge, detailed turndown services, and a prime location in bustling Madrid are just a few perks for couples who book a honeymoon suite at the Rosewood Villa Magna. Renowned Spanish architect Ramón de Arana's masterpiece ripples with luxury and romance and fits right in with the aesthetic of Salamanca. The service-driven ethos of staffers permeates into every thoughtful detail that this world-class property has to offer. A 25-minute walk away from the Museo Nacional del Prado (one of Europe's finest museums), the hotel attracts an art-adoring and curious crowd too.
Grand Hotel Timeo, A Belmond Hotel, Sicily, Italy
If your romantic getaway dreams include more Mediterranean coastline than jungle jaguars, you might want to consider booking the swanky Presidential Suite at Belmond's Grand Hotel Timeo in Sicily. The airy, spacious hotel room oozes European luxury and style, including two marble bathrooms, two king beds and an expansive terrace with a whirlpool tub and views of the sea. Extra amenities include select meals and a fully stocked minibar.
The Rooster, Antiparos, Greece
There is no greater luxury suite than a standalone Cycladic home that's been thoughtfully blended against the landscape as it overlooks the glittering Aegean Sea. On the island of Antiparos, the smaller sibling of the more well-known Paros, The Rooster is considered a destination in its own right… especially among the luxury wellness set. With 16 standalone suites that feel like an extension of the Cycladic soil, each "house" comes equipped with indoor and outdoor showers, organic products like milled soaps and lotions, as well as architectural furniture that only enhances the natural beauty. Couples will want to take in their private pool, the Aegean sunset, and the unspoiled waters of Livadia Beach, where The Rooster offers a five-star chair and towel service. A stay comes with daily morning yoga classes, but there are many more treats in store at the House of Healing. It's just the place for a sweet suite stay.
Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan, Bali, Indonesia
If you think your honeymoon will take you further afield, to international shores, try Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan, Indonesia. The Royal Villa is a rainforest hideaway that's difficult to match, with its modern architecture, private plunge pool, expansive outdoor and indoor space and palm trees for days. Whether you're enjoying some room service on the covered patio, sunbathing on the deck or just taking in the view from your guest room, you'll enjoy unprecedented privacy.
One&Only The Palm, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
If there's a destination in the world that gets modern luxury, it's Dubai. Book a honeymoon-ready executive suite at One&Only The Palm. There, you'll enjoy a private villa space right on the beachfront, as well as a private, temperature-controlled pool and access to the hotel's luxury spa. The villa terrace features oversized daybeds, while the suite has multiple views of the Arabian Gulf. If you can bear to leave your gorgeous accommodations, the staff is more than happy to help you and your spouse plan an array of excursions within and outside the city. At night, you have your pick of fine dining options, not to mention easy access to shopping and the city's coolest architectural feats.
Angama, Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya
In Swahili, angama means suspended in mid-air, and that's an apt description for the design of this 15-tent camp perched on an escarpment 1,000 feet above the Great Rift Valley. Each glass-fronted, canvas tent spans1,075-square-feet and has elegant design touches like brass finishes and polished parquet floors and Old World Africa drink cabinets. The Patricia Urquiolo-designed steel Vieques bathtub (a modern take on the tub from Out of Africa). Draw a bubble bath and watch the game roam below. Soar above the Mara on an hour-long sunrise hot air balloon ride. A champagne bush breakfast will await upon return.
Leopard Hill, Naboisho Conservancy, Kenya
This intimate property located in the gorgeous savannah of Naboisho Conservancy adjacent to the Masai Mara National Reserve is one of the best hidden secrets for couples who want an intimate and exhilarating safari experience. (Naboisho has Africa's largest concentrated lion population.) Between the wildlife (big cats, wild dogs, and elephants, oh my!) and the iconic acacia trees, Leopard Hill offers plush tented suites that blend against the natural landscape. The lodge's retractable rooftops were made for stargazing and slumbering under the heavens as you're surrounded by the sounds of the bush. After an exciting day of spotting wildlife and venturing through the bush, the best part about each spacious accommodation (and there are only nine on the camp) is retreating to your rooms with full tummies and hearing the thunderous roar of lions off in the distance as they feast too.
Segera Retreat, Laikipia Plains, Kenya
Set in the grounds of Segera—a 50,000-acre eco-safari retreat—the one-of-a-kind stay at Nay Palad Bird's Nest redefines the term "wild" with its fantastical design by architect Daniel Pouzet and luxe amenities and services (bubbly on arrival). It's the perfect one-night adventure post-safari. The open-air top deck is crowned with branches to resemble a massive bird's nest and affords 360-degree bird's eye views. Go wild walking with Segera's anti-poacher tracker teams and their dogs.
Xigera, Okavango Delta, Botswana
The Baobab Treehouse, a rather striking one-bedroom, three-story steel accommodation, soars 30 feet above the floodplain and looks like a sculpture from Burning Man. The design was inspired by a painting of a baobab tree by South African artist Jacobus Hendrik Pierneef. A spiral staircase leads to the second-floor bedroom and bathroom, which feature canvas walls that can be zipped up or left open. Your personal attendant will arrange sundowners and a picnic-style dinner on the top deck. The open-air stargazing deck is a dream romantic experience. Spot hippos and crocs on a mokoro (dugout canoe) excursion along the Delta's flooded waterways.
Six Senses Yao Noi, Phang Nga Bay, Thailand
Named for its 180-degree vistas of Phang Nga Bay, this two-floor, one-bedroom villa looks like a palatial treehouse surrounded by tropical jungle. You can soak in the dazzling view from the infinity pool, outdoor shower, sunken outdoor dining area, or while sipping cocktails at the pool shack. A waterfall runs beneath the glass floor of the bedroom. The castaway experience delivers couples to a nearby deserted island via a longtail boat and leaves them with a bottle of bubbles to toast the sunset.
