If wedding planning stress is getting to you, here’s our number one tip: plan a relaxing, luxurious honeymoon.

Here are 10 swoon-worthy honeymoon destinations that are sure to take your mind off guests lists and flower arrangements and on post-nuptial bliss.


With its tropical air, turquoise water, and smiling locals, Phuket is a honeymooners' paradise. There's no shortage of incredible resorts, but for the height of luxury, we'd recommend Trisara. It’s got everything you’d expect of a luxury property in Thailand, like villas with private pools and ocean views, an idyllic stretch of beach, a spa with tension-melting treatments, and private yachts available to rent. If you and your partner want more of an authentic cultural experience, Trisara offers that, too. Restaurant menus are inspired by family recipes and guests have the option of a private guided tour of Phuket, on which they can meet interesting locals and see a side of the island most tourists don’t.


The hardest decision to make when planning a trip to Tulum (especially a high-pressure honeymoon) is which beachfront boutique hotel to choose. Sanara Tulum is a favorite of chic Tulum regulars, thanks to its stylish rooms (those on the ground floor have private outdoor bath tubs), on-site restaurant The Real Coconut, which specializes in fresh, healthy cuisine, and incredible spa (request the crystal healing massage). The property has a prime location near beloved local eateries Hartwood and Casa Banana, but there are a couple of restaurants worth venturing a little further for. A 15-minute drive north along the coast is Mi Amor by Chef Paul Bentley, where fine-dining fare is prepared using the freshest local ingredients. Or, a 20-minute walk south of Sanara is WILD Tulum, hidden in the jungle with a Middle East/Mediterranean menu and expertly made cocktails, like the Hayate: tequila infused with red pepper, lime, agave syrup, basil and spice tincture.

Delfin River Cruises

Swim-up bars and sunset walks aren’t for everyone. Which is why more adventurous couples might want to consider a consider a more off-the-beaten-path locale, like the Peruvian Amazon. Luxury riverboat company, Delfin Amazon Cruises, has a fleet of three beautifully appointed vessels, including the newly launched Delfin III, a 42-passenger ship with 22 staterooms, an open-air sun deck, plunge pool, gym, and a Peruvian-inflected spa. You and your boo will spend your days exploring riverside communities deep in the forest, going on naturalist-led hikes through the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve (on which you might see monkeys, jaguars, sloths, and pink dolphins!), and paddling through creeks and lagoons via two-person river kayaks. Back on the boat, there are Peruvian cooking classes, presentations with naturalists, and pampering spa treatments inspired by local healing traditions, like volcanic stone massages and coffee scrubs.
