The honeymoon suite is no longer a guaranteed option at top hotels and resorts. While you can select suites based on size and specific features, finding one dedicated to newlyweds isn't always easy. Contact hotels in advance and inquire about honeymoon or bridal packages that will help convert your room into a more romantic honeymoon space. Fine hotels can provide you with fresh flowers, champagne, in-room massages, breakfast in bed and his-and-hers bathrobes. Don't be afraid to request the details you want.
If you're seeking a hotel with a designated honeymoon suite, consider these remarkable luxury getaways:
Honeymoon Suite: InterContinental Hong Kong
The top-floor Terrace Suite at the InterContinental Hong Kong overlooks Victoria Harbor and the bright lights of Hong Kong Island. The hotel offers "Under the Stars" camping on the private terrace, with a Jacuzzi, cushions, candles and rose petals ready to set the mood. Enjoy a private dinner for two on that same terrace, enjoy 24-hour butler service, and toast your new spouse with the Dom Pérignon that greets you on arrival. The high-end (and high-priced, at over $14,000 for two nights) "Romance with Style" package includes additional spa treatments, yoga classes, a "Romance Bath" and breakfast. This is one luxurious honeymoon that will cost a pretty penny.
Honeymoon Suite: Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora
The Otemanu Over-Water Bungalow at the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora is paradise for honeymoons looking to escape to privacy and tranquility. The one-bedroom suite has a plunge pool and covered dining pavilion, and features a stunning glass floor panel offering views of the lagoon life below. Curl up with your loved one on the deck of the thatched-roof bungalow before the breathtaking backdrop of Mount Otemanu, the jade-green volcano rock that rises from the island's center.
Honeymoon Suite: Halekulani Hotel, Waikiki
For brides who love their Vera Wang gowns, a stay at the Vera Wang-designed suite at the Halekulani Resort in Waikiki is a dream honeymoon option. One of the most expensive suites in Hawaii, this 2,135-square-foot oceanfront room has a 642-square-foot lanai that overlooks Waikiki Beach and palm trees swaying in the breeze. Meals are served on Vera Wang china, decorative pillows use Wang's apparel's fabrics, and the in-suite DVD collection reflects the designer's personal favorites. A sliding wall panel lets honeymooners watch the sunset from the 16-airjet tub in the spacious bathroom stocked with Vera Wang toiletries. Couples are shuttled to and from the airport in a limousine, benefit from the services of a 24-hour butler, receive a complimentary bottle of champagne, and can enjoy a full bar.
Honeymoon Suite: Six Senses Hideaway Zighy Bay, Oman
Adventure-loving honeymooners will love the rustic-meets-luxury villas nestled between Zighy Bay and the rugged Hajar Mountains in Oman. The resort offers two stone-and-timber Private Retreats, each with a spa treatment room, library, butler and overlooking an infinite pool and private beach. This is the Arabian Peninsula at its most romantic.
