June is the start of wedding season and that usually means a honeymoon will follow. Choosing the perfect honeymoon resort is a crucial part of planning for your dream honeymoon. It’s where you’ll create lasting memories, unwind after your wedding, and enjoy your first adventure as a married couple.  

Or maybe it's not your honeymoon but you still want something special and romantic.  

With so many factors to consider, from privacy and amenities to dining options and activities, making the right choice can be challenging. To help you find the perfect spot, I’ve compiled a list of the top 10 things to look for when selecting a honeymoon resort, whether you dream of a tropical paradise or a cozy beach retreat, or even a private villa, these tips will ensure your honeymoon is everything you’ve ever dreamed of.

1. Honeymoon Packages
When searching for the ideal honeymoon resort, consider those offering comprehensive packages. These packages often include perks like romantic dinners, couples’ massages, and other exclusive experiences. But which honeymoon package is best for you? Look for packages that offer value for money and cater to your interests and desires. Honeymoon resort packages can simplify planning and ensure a memorable experience. Additionally, honeymoon packages often come with bonuses such as complimentary champagne, room upgrades, and late check-outs, making your stay even more special.

2. Rooms and Suites That Offer Privacy
Privacy is paramount on a honeymoon. Look for resorts that offer honeymoon suites or private villas where you can enjoy your time together without interruption. Are honeymoon suites still a thing, Absolutely! And they come with amenities like private pools, jacuzzi, and secluded terraces, perfect for romantic moments. The best honeymoon resorts understand the need for seclusion and provide options to unwind and connect without distractions. Check if the rooms have soundproofing, private entrances, and other features that enhance privacy.

3. Room Service (Magic Box Preferred)
Convenience and luxury go hand in hand on a honeymoon. Resorts that offer 24/7 room services are ideal, allowing you to enjoy gourmet meals in the comfort of your room. Some top resorts feature a “magic box” service, where meals and other requests are delivered to a compartment, ensuring total privacy. This service adds an element of magic to your stay, allowing you to indulge in delicious meals without ever having to leave your room. Look for resorts that offer a diverse room service menu, including breakfast in bed and late-night snacks.

4. Several Dining Options On-Site or Nearby
Variety is the spice of life, and that includes dining. Look for honeymoon resorts with multiple on-site dining options or easy access to nearby restaurants. This ensures you can enjoy a range of culinary experiences, from fine dining to casual beachside snacks. Some resorts even offer private dining experiences, where you can enjoy a meal on the beach, in your room, or in a secluded garden. Exploring different cuisines together can be a delightful part of your honeymoon experience, adding to the memories you create.

5. Upgraded Level of Service
An upgraded level of service can make your honeymoon truly special. Consider resorts that offer personal butlers, concierge services, and other luxury touches. These services can enhance your stay, providing personalized attention and helping to create unforgettable memories. A personal butler can assist with everything from unpacking your luggage to arranging romantic excursions, ensuring your honeymoon is stress-free. Also, resorts with concierge services can help you plan your itinerary and maximize your time together.

6. Activities and Entertainment
While relaxation is key, you’ll also want to enjoy some activities and entertainment. Choose a resort that offers a variety of activities, from water sports and excursions to evening entertainment and cultural experiences. This will ensure that you and your new spouse are entertained and can create lasting memories together.

7. A Quality Spa Experience
A luxurious spa is a must-have for any honeymoon resort. Look for resorts that offer extensive spa services, including couples’ massages, facials, and other treatments designed to relax and rejuvenate. A day at the spa can be a perfect way to unwind and enjoy each other’s company. Some resorts offer unique spa experiences such as outdoor massages, hydrotherapy circuits, and aromatherapy sessions. Consider booking a spa package that includes multiple treatments, allowing you to relax and enjoy the benefits of the spa fully.

8. Easy Access to Nearby Sites and Excursions
Exploring new places together is one of the joys of a honeymoon. Choose a resort with easy access to local attractions and excursions. Whether it is a guided tour of a historic site, a nature hike, or a boat trip, having nearby activities adds an extra layer of excitement to your honeymoon. Look for resorts that offer excursion packages, allowing you to experience the local culture and natural beauty without the hassle of planning. Popular excursions include snorkeling, zip-lining, city tours, and sunset 
cruises.

9. Couples-Only or Adult-Only
Consider couples-only or adult-only resorts to ensure a peaceful and romantic atmosphere. A honeymoon without kids running around allows for a more serene environment, perfect of relaxation and intimacy. These resorts are designed with romance, offering amenities such as candlelit dinners, couples’ spa treatments, and
private beach areas. The tranquil setting allows you to focus on each other and enjoy your time together without distractions.

10. Breathtaking Views
Finally, breathtaking views are essential for a romantic honeymoon.
Whether it’s an ocean vista, or a mountain range, or a lush garden, stunning scenery adds to the overall ambiance and romance of your stay. Look for resorts with spectacular views from their rooms, dining areas, and common spaces. Imagine waking up to a sunrise over the ocean or enjoying a sunset from your private balcony. These moments of natural beauty can enhance the romance and make your honeymoon even more special. 

Selecting the perfect Romantic resort is an essential step in planning an unforgettable honeymoon or romantic escape. By focusing on these top 10 considerations, you can find a destination & resort with the perfect mix of romance, luxury, and adventure. From private accommodations and exceptional service to breathtaking views and exciting activities, the right resort will help you create memories you and your partner will cherish forever, wishing you a romantic escape that is as wonderful and unique as your love story.
