Hawaii reigns as a premier honeymoon destination for our clients, and it’s not hard to see why. With its lush landscapes, beautiful beaches, and a vibrant culture that exudes warmth and hospitality, Hawaii offers couples a perfect blend of romance and adventure. From the stunning sunsets over the Pacific to the awe-inspiring volcanic landscapes, there’s a wealth of natural beauty to explore. Whether you’re savoring a traditional luau, staying active on a scenic hike, or simply lazing on the beach, Hawaii’s charm and diversity create an idyllic backdrop for honeymoon memories that will last a lifetime.
Four Seasons Resort Hualalai
Our clients who love the Four Seasons Hualalai, LOVE it in a big way! Along with its sister property on Maui, Four Seasons Hualalai is one of our top-selling hotels in the world. This is a spacious resort whose guest rooms and suites are arranged in four oceanside crescents and a fifth group of rooms alongside the 18th green of the resort’s golf course… five resorts within the resort.
The rooms are spread out in low-lying crescent-shaped buildings, which gives the feeling that you are staying in one of four boutique hotels rather than one large resort. Each crescent has its own personality that will appeal to different types of travelers. We recommend the Palm Grove Crescent for honeymooners because it is more secluded with its own adults-only Tranquility Pool. Angela loved her room on the second floor overlooking Palm Grove. Ground floors feature outdoor showers, however, the second floor has more serene views and an additional level of privacy.
Our top recommended activities for honeymooners include a private dinner on the beach with a custom menu, an outrigger canoe excursion, night snorkeling with Manta Rays, a helicopter tour of a live volcano, and of course, a Lomi Lomi (a traditional Hawaiian massage). This is just the tip of the iceberg for things to do at Four Seasons Hualalai and on the Big Island, and our team is experts at creating a custom itinerary best suited to your interests.
Four Seasons Resort Lanai
Four Seasons Lanai is more than just a hotel; it’s a game-changer in the world of luxury travel. It’s hard to pinpoint one thing that makes this resort special because it’s the complete package. The resort is nestled on an island with just 3,100 residents and 88,000 acres of untouched beauty, making it one of our favorite tropical honeymoon destinations. And a fun fact, Angela from Team O spent part of her honeymoon here so she can personally vouch for this romantic paradise.
What sets Four Seasons Lanai apart is its direct ownership and operation of every activity, ensuring a consistently exceptional five-star experience. Whether it’s snorkeling, scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, or enchanting sunset sails, their fleet of boats is ready to take you on aquatic adventures. On land, enjoy horseback riding, UTV tours, archery, shooting range, tennis, and access to a comprehensive spa. The accommodations, from the spacious, comfortable rooms to the meticulously designed bathrooms, provide a perfect sanctuary for you and your partner.
If time allows for it, we suggest pairing your stay with Sensei, a Four Seasons Resort. Of the two resorts in Lanai, Sensei is adults-only, much quieter, and more centered around promoting health and well-being. You can read our blog for a longer list of activities in Lanai, but we highly recommend contacting our team of experts for guidance on crafting the perfect itinerary.
Kona Village, a Rosewood Resort
With its exquisite accommodations, from beachfront bungalows to spacious villas, Kona Village has recently opened its doors and provides an intimate setting for couples seeking the perfect honeymoon escape. The resort’s commitment to sustainability and authentic Hawaiian experiences ensures that you’ll not only be indulging in luxury but also connecting with the local culture and natural surroundings.
Each hale is a standalone bungalow with palm-thatched roofs, paying homage to the original structures of Kona Village. Choose from a mountain, garden, lagoon, ocean, oceanfront, or beachfront view for these rooms. In our opinion, the most unique room choices in this category are the Ocean Front Legacy Hale or the Tree Top King Hale.
Guests can relax in the warm Hawaiian sun and rejuvenate with refreshing swims in any of the four outdoor pools, each providing poolside service and breathtaking views of the natural surroundings. For couples seeking active leisure, Kona Village provides fully equipped pickleball and tennis courts, perfect for engaging and enjoying quality time together. Explore a fusion of ultra-luxury and traditional wellness practices at Asaya Spa through guided wellness programs, healing body modalities, and relaxing spa treatments. Contact our team for more information on Kona Village.
Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea
The Four Seasons Maui at Wailea is our most popular destination in Hawaii for couples, especially honeymooners. This resort definitely has a romantic flair; it is also the “see and be seen” hotspot. Guests celebrating a special occasion should kick off the trip on the right foot with a private airport transfer in the sleek and sexy Tesla. Then, after arriving at the resort, indulge in everything the property has to offer especially the adults-only sanctuary pool and the spa. And, for a little adventure, be sure to give the outrigger canoeing a whirl!
The resort is centered around a U-shape building and your room selection is important here. The entry-level rooms, called Mountainside, do come with a lower rate, but you get what you pay for with the view. For a real wow factor, the Ocean-View Prime One-Bedroom Suites are our favorite accommodation option at Four Seasons Maui.
Mexico stands out as a top honeymoon destination for a myriad of reasons. Its rich tapestry of culture, from the historic charm of colonial cities to the lively spirit of coastal towns, provides an enchanting backdrop for newlyweds. The country’s year-round warm climate, choice of 5-star luxury resorts, and world-class spas make it a perfect choice for honeymooners seeking the ultimate tropical getaway.
Nestled amidst Mexico’s captivating coastal rainforest, One&Only Mandarina is a sanctuary of unspoiled nature and cultural heritage, allowing couples to connect with each other and the natural world from their private villa overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
For honeymooners, the resort offers a mirage of romantic activities, including natural wine tasting, horseback rides on the beach, spa services, and many more. You can also choose to follow their curated romantic 3-day itinerary if you just want to sit back, relax, and enjoy uninterrupted quality time with your partner.
For accommodations, choose between the well-loved Cliff Villas or Treehouses, although our top recommendation is the Ocean Treehouse. Perched within the trees, the adults-only villa starts at 854 square feet and includes one King bed and one day bed with floor-to-ceiling windows. Grab a coffee and enjoy the view in your private plunge pool on your spacious 301-square-foot patio with panoramic ocean views. Kick things off by filling out our contact form or scheduling a complimentary discovery call.
Naviva, a Four Seasons Resort
Four Seasons Naviva Resort in Punta Mita, Mexico is an exquisite blend of nature and luxury. The resort’s design honors Mexican heritage and perfectly complements its natural exterior elements. It is a truly remarkable escape for honeymooners who desire innovative privacy, serene views of the Pacific Ocean, and extraordinary adults-only, all-inclusive amenities. Just 15 luxury tents spread across the 48-acre property ensure exclusivity in a calm, meditative hideaway in the Mexican jungle. It is the first Four Seasons all-inclusive tented camp in the Americas and only the second in the world, promising a rare and timeless experience.
We highly recommend staying in a Grand Tent (there are only 5 on the property). The Grand Tents are 1,700 sqft and have a two-tier deck, which offers captivating 360-degree views of the jungle and Pacific Ocean. Each tent is exclusively designed to serve as a “refuge” for its guests. With an outdoor shower, private pool, sun deck, multiple lounging areas, for some a fire pit, and an indoor free-standing tub with an ocean view, it is a truly over-the-top “refuge” — one that feels both wild and comforting.
Since it’s an all-inclusive resort, we recommend taking advantage of the nature-inspired activities offered, including extensive guided hikes, meditation and sound healing, House of Heat, and of course, spa treatments. Our team will be able to assist in securing reservations for you so that all you have to do is get from one relaxing activity to the next.
Zadún, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve
Zadún, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, presents a luxury haven for honeymooners traveling to Mexico. The resort offers a remote escape with proximity to the vibrant cities of San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. Your Zadún journey commences with a warm welcome, complete with a refreshing drink and a cold towel. Your dedicated Tosoani, or private butler, becomes your personal concierge, ensuring that your every wish and need is catered to during your stay so you can live likely royalty (as you deserve)!
The accommodations, ranging from rooms to villas and suites, beautifully blend indoor and outdoor living, with Ocean View King Rooms starting at an impressive 750 square feet. Each space has a perfect fusion of modern elements, Mexican artistry, and nature, and comes with a private plunge pool and complimentary beach accessories.
The resort’s unwavering commitment to wellness is evident in the Alkemia Spa, offering rejuvenating treatments and a unique Savasana Sound Room for post-treatment relaxation. With three pools, including an infinity pool and an adult-only pool, alongside private pools in every accommodation, you’ll have no trouble finding the perfect spot to unwind. The exemplary service and extraordinary room design ensure complete privacy, making Zadún a perfect destination for honeymooners seeking privacy and a tropical escape on one of Cabo’s stunning beaches. Schedule a discovery call with our Tailored Luxury team to learn about the abundance of activities Cabo offers to honeymooners and couples alike.
In recent years, the Seychelles has been put on the map as a popular honeymoon destination. Often paired with an African safari, the Seychelles gives guests an opportunity to pair a once-in-a-lifetime animal-observing adventure with one of the most beautiful and relaxing tropical locations in the world.
Four Seasons Resort Seychelles
Four Seasons Seychelles is our top accommodation recommendation for honeymooners, offering an exceptional blend of natural beauty, wellness, and adventure. Nestled on the uppermost point of the resort and blessed with Mahé’s most breathtaking views, Le Syel Spa is a sanctuary that transforms your perspective on wellbeing. From stand-up paddle boarding along the tranquil shores of Desroches Island to sunset yoga sessions overlooking Petite Anse Bay, couples can embrace a profound connection with nature and deepen their bond with the world around them. The resort’s extensive selection of unique activities, from marine education to beachfront yoga, opens up a world of experiences both on land and at sea, keeping you busy if you choose to pack your days with activities for two.

Nestled on the lush green hillsides just a short drive from Vallée de Mai, a primeval palm forest, Raffles Seychelles is a romantic resort that feels like a utopia. The 86 contemporary and uncluttered villas come complete with private plunge pools, outdoor pavilions, and attentive butler service, making them an ideal setting for a romantic escape. The resort’s dedication to well-being is evident in the Raffles Spa, which offers yoga, meditation, and natural treatments, allowing couples to unwind after a long year of wedding planning and celebrations.
Located on Praslin, a launch point for myriad activities and home to natural wonders like the UNESCO World Heritage Site Vallée de Mai and Anse Lazio, rated as one of the world’s best beaches, Raffles Seychelles gives guests access to some of the world’s most beautiful natural scenery. With its warm tropical climate year-round and convenient access from Mahé via a scenic 15-minute plane ride or a leisurely catamaran ferry, Raffles Seychelles is the ultimate destination for couples seeking a one-of-a-kind experience that they will never forget.
Bora Bora will always stand out as a bucket list destination for anyone, but especially honeymooners. Who wouldn’t want to spend a week in an overwater bungalow in one of the most beautiful locations in the world?
Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora
Four Seasons Bora Bora is a picture-perfect honeymoon destination, captivating travelers (and us) with its stunning location and top-of-the-line amenities. Situated in front of the majestic Mount Otemanu, the resort offers 360-degree views, creating a mesmerizing backdrop for your romantic getaway.
The resort is a year-round paradise, although January and February see occasional rain showers. The overwater bungalows at the resort are suite-style, offering separate bedrooms and living rooms. These exquisite accommodations feature open walls leading to a private terrace with lagoon access, chaise lounges, and an outdoor shower. The king bedrooms redefine luxury, offering comfort and serenity, enveloped in a spa-like atmosphere with natural wood accents and exquisite lighting.
The resort has every amenity for a perfect beach vacation in Bora Bora, even offering a boat shuttle to town. One of the most remarkable aspects of this property is its stunning lagoons with small beaches nestled on white sands. On-site marine biologists are available for snorkeling excursions to explore coral, tropical fish, and rays while explaining the resort’s coral grafting initiatives. Guests can also enjoy complimentary access to kayaks, paddle boards, and snorkel gear. For those seeking more adventure, activities offered range from circling the island on a Waverunner to scuba diving, tennis, and ping pong. We highly recommend a shark/ray Lagoon cruise with a motu lunch. Our team can assist you with booking the best activities catered to your preferences.
The warm hospitality, adventurous activities, and private island resorts create an ideal setting for couples to celebrate their love, while romantic sunsets and diverse cultural experiences add to the allure of this tropical paradise. Easy accessibility from international airports makes Fiji a convenient and enchanting choice for honeymooners.
Six Senses Fiji
Six Senses Fiji is our top recommendation for honeymooners wishing to travel to Fiji. The resort’s design, inspired by a Fijian village, encompasses 24 pool villas that seamlessly blend tradition with a contemporary touch, providing an idyllic escape for couples to savor their own private paradise.
At the heart of Six Senses Fiji lies the Wellness Village, enveloped by a lush tropical jungle, and home to Six Senses Spa Fiji. Here, honeymooners can disconnect from the stresses of wedding planning and embrace tranquility.
