For most newlyweds, the honeymoon is a much anticipated after-wedding ritual. While you might have taken trips in the past or will take some down the road in the future, the honeymoon is still considered a trip of a lifetime. Here are 10 honeymoon hot spots for your romantic getaway.
Honeymoon Option 1: El Dorado Palafitos, Maroma Beach, Mexico
Instagram user @haleydoutrich enjoys her stay at El Dorado Palafitos.
El Dorado Palafitos is located on Maroma Beach in Mexico. This is a game-changer for Mexico because it’s the first overwater bungalow in Mexico, so you won’t find them anywhere else in Mexico. This is the perfect honeymoon spot because the resort has a romantic feel and is an adult-only resort.
You can enjoy showering in the buff outdoors with your outdoor shower. Need room service at 3 am? No worries, you’ll have access to the 24-hour butler service. You’ll have access to your infinity plunge pools which are private. If you decide you want to stay in, you can watch the fish swim below your bungalow through glass panels on the floor.
The design is another aspect that makes El Dorado so unique. You should find Aztec-styled furniture made of Zapote wood. You’ll even find white granite throughout your bungalow.
El Dorado has been named one of the Top 10 Beaches in the World and includes thirty private bungalows. While enjoying your romantic getaway, you and your partner can spice things up with a private indoor hot tub that is meant for two. It makes for the perfect, romantic getaway ever!
Honeymoon Option 2: Sandals Royal Caribbean, Montego Bay, Jamaica
Sandals have luxurious resorts you can choose from: two are in Jamaica while the third is in St. Lucia. We will focus on Sandals Royal Caribbean in Jamaica. This honeymoon hot spot has five over-the-water bungalows located over Montego Bay. You’ll find that you’ll have a floating deck with a hammock just for you, and it’s even over water!

If you need to leave your bungalow and make it back to dry land, you’ll have your private water taxi. You’ll be able to come and go as you please, without having the stress of worrying about the time that the taxi leaves. You’ll get to enjoy watching sealife swim at your feet through glass panels located on the floor.

These butlers have been trained by an elite company called the Guild of Professional Butlers.
Honeymoon Option 3: Komandoo, Maldives
