When the party is over and the last guest has gone home, for the newlywed couple, the fun has just begun. After the dust settles, most couples prefer to spend about a week or so basking in a relaxing sanctuary, soaking up the sun (if a tropical destination is your style) on their honeymoon. We researched the hottest spots for honeymoons this year and came up with a list of places that fit almost every type of couple as well as a variety of budgets.
Anguilla: This British West Indies Island is known for modern luxury and is a hotspot for celebs and the rich and famous.
Who it’s for: Foodies and super chic hipster couples.
Where to stay: The Viceroy is quickly becoming THE place to stay especially among young couples. The resort boasts modern white tranquil open spaces perfect for a serene look out onto paradise with a bright infusion from famed interior designer Kelly Wearstler who was sought out to bring an extra dose of cool to the hotel.
Grenada: Also known as the “ Spice Island,” Grenada is known for its lush foliage and truly breathtaking landscapes.
Who it’s for: Low-key nature lovers and privacy seekers
Where to stay: Spice Island Beach Resort is the spot for private patios and terraces, oversized tubs and plunge pools. Charter a safari tour or waterfall jump for an extra dose of adventure on your romantic getaway.
Napa Valley: California wine country meets romantic mecca in this Northern California region known for its attention to detail and hospitality.
Who it’s for: Wine lovers,of course, and foodies alike. The two go hand in hand here as some of the most famed chefs in the world call this place home. Dine at Thomas Keller’s French Laundry or one Michael Chiarello’s namesakes for a truly unforgettable experience. Enjoy the vast and lush green vineyard settings that make you think you are in Tuscany while still enjoying all of the comforts of American Classic style.
Where to stay: It’s pretty hard to go wrong here since the area demands high standards in hotels and B&B’s alike. Our favorites are Bardessono and Auberge du Soleil.
