Honeymoon 2023: the 10 most popular destinations! – By Black Platinum Gold
Are you looking for an amazing destination or hotel for your honeymoon? Certainly there are no one-size-fits-all solutions, but there are fabulous five-star resorts around the world known for their unparalleled romantic appeal. A Mexican retreat where you can sleep under the stars, for example, or a bucolic Vermont farm where you will be served a picnic by the pond. And there are the resorts where romance seems embedded in the landscape, such as the Amalfi Coast.
Below are the best resorts to stay at on your honeymoon, whether you plan a weekend mini-getaway or a remote adventure.
1.AndBeyond Sossusvlei, Namibia
It takes at least three flights to reach AndBeyond’s remote Sossusvlei lodge in the heart of the Namib Desert. But those willing to make the long journey will be rewarded by a landscape that looks more like Mars than Earth, the second darkest night sky in the world, and an adventure that will be remembered for a lifetime. You can spend the morning pedaling an e-bike through the property’s 13,000-hectare sandy reserve, or perhaps taking a hot air balloon ride as the sun rises. Then, when the afternoon temperature rises, you can cool off in the infinity pool of your stone and glass suite.
- Le Toiny, Saint Barthélemy
Le Toiny is for those seeking discreet, romantic glamour while still wanting to enjoy the social life of Saint Barth Island. The entire property is surrounded by rugged wilderness; to reach the beach club, guests must board an open-top white safari jeep that will travel a winding dirt road before reaching the remote and elegant destination, famous for its lobster salad and Minuty.
- Belmond Hotel Caruso, Amalfi Coast
There is certainly no shortage of romantic places to stay on the Amalfi Coast, a dream destination in which to enjoy la dolce vita. We, however, will choose just one: the Caruso, from the Belmond hotel chain. Located in the hills of Ravello, it is just far enough away from the busy towns below to allow you to have a private experience in a sufficiently secluded place.
- Rosewood Las Ventanas at Paraíso, Los Cabos
Rosewood Las Ventanas in Los Cabos is so romantic that it is the favorite retreat of Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker, known for their public outpourings. With more than 350 days of sunshine a year, the five-star resort has an expansive beach, eight pools, and a bar that serves tequila and ceviche exclusively. The hotel also has a department that specializes in making honeymoons memorable.
- Twin Farms, Vermont
Desiring a bucolic honeymoon? One solution is Twin Farms, Vermont, a resort that exudes New England charm. Ten cottages, spread over 100 acres, all vary in style: in one you’ll find paintings by Roy Lichtenstein, David Hockney, David Bates, and Frank Stella; another will be a perfect example of Japanese minimalism. Included in every stay?
- Reschio Castle, Umbria
“Old meets new at Reschio, a place where you can feel the weight of centuries in the solid stone ramparts while enjoying the most modern comforts,” wrote Chloe Schama, editor of Vogue, about this thousand-year-old castle nestled in the Umbrian hills that has been converted into a hotel.
- Nayara Tented Camp, Costa Rica
Eco-adventurers will find a perfect romantic respite at Nayara Tented Camp, a luxurious retreat bordering Arenal Volcano National Park in Costa Rica. The tents are surrounded by guarumo trees and the brightly plumed toucans that reside there, along with howler monkeys. Each accommodation has a private pool fed with water from the volcano. Participate in an outdoor yoga class and then set off on a rainforest trekking adventure.
- Amangiri, Utah
Located near the Arizona-Utah border, the Amangiri-a favorite retreat for every celebrity couple, it seems, from the Kardashians to the Biebers-is an extremely secluded resort. Minimalist-modern in style, it is located in the heart of the Grand Staircase-Escalante, more than half a million acres of protected land and the last area to be mapped in the contiguous United States of America. Within the hotel’s 250 acres you will find canyons and mountains, mesas, rivers and deserts. Hiking is a must at Amangiri, as is via ferrata (a climbing route that is tackled with the help of wire ropes).
- Kisawa, Mozambique
On the island of Benguerra, Mozambique, lies Kisawa, a vast new resort that combines modernist African architecture with adventurer’s sensibilities. Upon arrival, guests receive the keys to a pastel-colored Moke and are free to roam the nearly 300 acres of the property (a tip: always keep a map of the resort handy). The food is fresh, local and seafood-based-many dishes are caught by the island’s local fishermen-and the service is impeccable.
10 Grand Hotel Tremezzo, Lake Como
Among the most romantic places in the world, a place of its own is reserved for the lakes and perhaps in particular Lake Como, of Manzonian memory, with its sapphire-colored waters surrounded by the Pre Alps. There is certainly no shortage of quality resorts here. However, it is the Grand Hotel Tremezzo, with its floating pool, Belle Epoque interiors, Wes Anderson-esque exterior facade and immense gardens, that enraptures the gazes of honeymooning couples from around the world.
