Stay in an Overwater Bungalow in Bora Bora

You’ll probably never want to leave (ever) when you set foot in your villa at The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort. Personal butlers will deliver whatever your heart desires and swimming is as easy as diving off the swim platform into the clear bathlike waters below. If you do emerge, the resort’s sprawling grounds, made smaller with beach-cruiser bikes, are lush and fringed with palm trees and beaches. The spa is tucked away on an island in the middle of its own lagoon, where tropical fish and corals were raised in a protected environment, making it an ideal snorkel spot.

Dive the South Pacific in Fiji

Described as a diver’s paradise, Fiji’s reefs are teeming with an underwater parade of hammerheads, turtles, mantas ... you name it. But you don’t have to be certified to get in on the action: shallow depths mean snorkelers can also take in the same amazing sights, like coral in every color of the rainbow. For an ultra-romantic topside escapade, stay at in a beachfront bure (bungalow) at private-island resort The Wakaya Club & Spa.

Make Like Royalty in Ireland

Even if you’re not Will and Kate, you can still act like royals on your honeymoon and the Emerald Isle offers just the place: Dromoland Castle in County Clare. Cozy up in the Honeymoon Suite's drawing room, with a couch, daybed, dining table, flat-screen TV and chandelier. The upstairs bedroom (yes, upstairs) is perched in a turret overlooking the ivy-covered castle below, while the adjoining bath has a blissfully oversize tub, perfect for two.

Bike Down a Volcano in Hawaii

Riding a bike in Maui might not seem extraordinary — until you consider the route is an adrenalin-pumping, 6,000-foot plunge down the outside of Haleakala volcano. (And you don’t have to be in Tour de France shape to make the ride.) Of the nine companies that offer volcano bike trips, Haleakala Bike Co. offers the freedom to ride the route at your own pace rather than with a tightly packed guided group. Even with the 1:30 AM call-time, all it takes is one amazing Haleakala sunrise from the 10,000-foot summit to see why the ancient Hawaiians called this mountain “House of the Sun.” Stay at luxe Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua, and post-ride you can soothe your muscles with a massage at the spa.

There are two ways to get to the breathtaking Machu Picchu Historical Sanctuary: by foot, via the two- to five-day Inca Trail, or for those on a tighter itinerary, by a three-hour train from Cusco. The sights will be too much to appreciate in one afternoon, so book a room at Orient-Express’ Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge. The convenience that comes from sleeping at the top of the hill, next door to the entrance so you can come and go as you please, is priceless.

Never Leave the Room in St. Lucia

You don’t go to Jade Mountain resort for its beaches, even though the volcanic sand sparkles in the sun and there’s fantastic snorkeling right off the shore. You don’t go for the activities, even though they range from hiking to sunset sailing. You don’t even go for the food, created by a James Beard Award-winning chef. You go for the rooms, so divine they’re called “sanctuaries.” Each comes with a private butler who will deliver that amazing food (passion-fruit waffles for breakfast, couscous-crusted mahi for dinner) along with anything else you might desire. Need a massage? Therapists bring portable tables to perform their services en suite. The only thing missing from your sanctuary is the fourth wall, offering a stunning view of the iconic Pitons.

Go on Safari in South Africa

Your bucket list will receive a gigantic check mark when you spy all of the Big Five animals — elephants, rhinos, Cape buffaloes, leopards and lions. But this is no ordinary safari: This honeymoon-worthy adventure is &Beyond’s Five-Day Ngala Experience, a luxurious safari crafted to guests’ interests. A helicopter tour is included, plus you certainly won’t be roughing it with a personal butler, private dinners and pre-heated beds. Photo by Thinkstock

Get Star Treatment in Mexico

Sure, celebs like Jennifer Aniston and Bethenny Frankel have relaxed around the adults-only pool, and George Clooney and Brangelina are known to frequent the resort’s three restaurants. But the best part about One&Only Palmilla in Cabo is the staff will make you feel just as famous when you check in. Your personal butler will greet you with a welcome carafe of tequila. Ask him to book a snorkeling trip on the resort’s private yacht to Lover’s Beach — a great spot for couples who want to pack a lunch and spend the afternoon on a quiet sandy cove. Ramble down to the beach and relax on a floating bed and keep an eye out at the swim-up bar — you never know who you might see. Photo by One&Only Palmilla

Ride an Elephant in Thailand

Trekking through the jungle in Thailand is pretty cool; trekking through the jungle in Thailand on the back of an elephant is even cooler. Phulay Bay, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, offers the experience, ending with a panoramic view from the top of Naga Mountain. After your adventure, head back to your luxury digs with soaking tubs (yes, tubs — one in the bathroom and one outside in a stone garden) and a lavishly oversize bed, comprised of two California king mattresses linked together and covered with the softest linens imaginable. If the property seems a bit familiar, it's probably because it was featured in The Hangover 2. Photo by Shutterstock

Cruise the Galapagos Islands

Couples fascinated by nature should head to the Galapagos for a once-in-a-lifetime excursion. For centuries, the wildlife here has evolved away from humans — aside from Mr. Darwin and his lot. A good way to explore the islands: a cruise on 32-passenger M/V Evolution, arranged by International Expeditions. By day, spot Blue-footed Boobies, sea lions, penguins, lizards, giant tortoises and birds. Once dusk settles in, return to your floating hotel for cocktail hour and dinner, followed by the most amazing star display you’ve ever seen. Photo by Hilary R. Brown
