Summer is the start of wedding season sure, but if honeymoon plans have fallen to the wayside thanks to all those never-ending nuptial details, you’re in luck—we’ve come up with a list of what we think are some of the best spas for honeymooners. And for those who are no longer newlyweds—second honeymoon, perhaps?
These are just a few of our picks; share your favorites in the comments!
This spa offers a seriously romantic couple’s treatment catering to newlyweds to those celebrating their 75th wedding anniversary. The Hawaiian Love Story Package tells the legend of a forbidden love between a Hawaiian princess and a commoner and is inspired by the ocean, or Makai, and mountain Naupaka flower; the ritual for two includes a traditional lomilomi massage, followed by an exfoliation and alfresco aromatic bath in a stone-carved dual tub.
You’re in for a wild time at this hip, tropical hideaway within the jungles of Belize, which has been featured on TV shows like Temptation Island. Experience treatments together such as the Couple’s Mood Mud Massage, using vibrant-colored moor muds harvested nearby. The property also has designated honeymoon packages extending from three to six nights.
Just some of the highlights of this French country-esque resort in upstate NY? Monet-inspired gardens, guest suites with cozy fireplaces (a majority of the spa’s treatment rooms feature them, also!), and healthy cuisine showcasing the Finger Lakes region’s splendid ingredients. We could go on, but we think you get the idea.
If you’re looking for a place of pure obscurity, Parrot Cay doesn’t disappoint (especially since it resides on its own 1,000-acre private island!). Start your happily ever after, honeymooners, by being whisked away from the airport to marina to boat ride shuttling you to a tropical paradise lush with vegetation, marine life, white-sand beach, and COMO Shambhala Spa, Sanskrit for “center of peace and harmony.” A harmonious start to married life for certain.
The all-inclusive Turtle Island resort in Fiji, with views of the famous Blue Lagoon, accommodates just 14 couples at a time, so you’re ensured the utmost in privacy and special attention. Enjoy access to 14 private beaches, the lagoon-side Vonu Spa, fresh seafood, and secluded cottage, or bure, accommodations. You’ll be planning your first, second, third, fourth, and fifth anniversary to this secluded South Pacific hotspot as well.
