What’s sexier than a honeymoon suite? A honeymoon suite with a private plunge pool. Here are some of our favorite resorts around the globe where the two of you can dive into total privacy. Skinny-dipping, anyone?
Ladera, St. Lucia
Rooms at this hilltop hideaway are built without a fourth wall, leaving one side open to jaw-dropping panoramas. But the highlight is the deck with a grotto-style plunge pool (our favorite is in the bi-level Dream Suite). Cool off after a rainforest hike with some room-service daiquiris. When those tree frogs begin their evening serenade, it’s time to start dressing for dinner.
Paraiso de la Bonita, Mexico
This boutique retreat on Mexico’s Riviera Maya has exotic accents like Balinese sculptures, Indian wall hangings and marble bathrooms with sunken tubs. And 30 of the 90 suites have the ultimate accessory: a private oceanfront terrace with heated plunge pool. It’s the perfect place to reflect on your visit to the Maya ruins in nearby Tulum.
Sandals Caribbean Village & Spa, Antigua
Couples love the Honeymoon Garden Rondoval suites at this all-inclusive resort. Each pastel-hued round cottage features a private patio with an hour-glass-shaped freshwater pool enclosed by bougainvillea bushes and towering palms. With a personal butler on hand to cater to your every whim, there’s no reason ever to leave.
The Mykonos Grand Hotel, Greece
Mykonos is famous for its jet-set crowd and sizzling night life. The best suites here take full advantage of the locale, with private bean-shaped swimming pools built into the stony cliff overlooking Ayios Yiannis Beach and the neighboring island of Delos. After a romantic dinner on the patio, slip into your pool and listen to the faint cries of “Opa!” carried on the breeze.
Royal Duvai, Fiji
Live out your barefoot fantasies on this private island in Bequ Lagoon, which has 16 open-plan hillside vales (villas) featuring floor-to-ceiling windows, a king-size bed and a deck with a private infinity-edge pool overlooking the surrounding crystalline lagoon. When it gets too dark to sightsee, head down to the alfresco restaurant and dine by candlelight under the canopy of an ancient banyan tree.
