Searching for the best honeymoon destinations or honeymoon hotels? There’s certainly no one-size-fits-all-couples getaway—but there are several fantastic five-star resorts across the world known for their romantic, once-in-a-lifetime appeal. Take a Mexican resort whose “department of romance” will set up sleeping under the stars, or a bucolic Vermont farm that will serve a pondside picnic for your partner. Then there are the locations where romance seems to be embedded into the landscape, such as the Amalfi Coast.
Below, the best places to stay on your honeymoon, whether you’re searching for a mini weekend getaway or a far-flung adventure.
AndBeyond Sossusvlei, Namibia
It takes at least three flights to reach andBeyond Sossusvlei, a remote lodge deep in the Namib desert. But those willing to take the long journey will be well rewarded with a landscape that feels more like Mars than earth, a night sky that’s the second-darkest in the world, and an adventure that’ll stick with you for a lifetime. Spend your morning e-biking through the property’s 31,419-acre private sandy reserve, or perhaps take a hot air balloon as the sun rises. Then, cool off by your stone-and-glass studio’s infinity pool as the afternoon temperature rises. When you’re ready to adventure out again, have one of the property’s rangers take you out for a cocktail hour deep in the dunes, or perhaps hike the dunes. . . and then have a cocktail hour.
