Best Bars for a Honeymoon Cocktail: Bayside Bar, St. Lucia

Sunset views, expertly mixed libations, and a stunning beachside location all make the Bayside Bar at Sugar Beach one of the Caribbean’s top overall spots for cocktails.

Most newlyweds want to stay in a seriously swag suite on their honeymoon — and who can blame them? After all, for many of us, a honeymoon is one of the only times we’ll get to live it up in such luxurious fashion. These five honeymoon suites come with all the bells and whistles one could ask for — from private pools to dizzying views.

The Honeymoon: Hong Kong
The Suite: Extreme WOW Suite at the W Hong Kong

extreme-wow-suite

Hong Kong is a fabulous urban destination for those couples seeking out incredible, modern architecture, world-class shopping, and Michelin-starred dining on a nightly basis. And the W Hong Kong is in the heart of the tourist district, Kowloon, and features all the funky extras you’d expect from a W as well as an unreal, souped-up version of the stateside Bliss Spa chain. And the Extreme WOW Suite not only has all the high-tech essentials that seem commonplace in Hong Kong, but also has a fully-stocked kitchenette, spacious closet (because every outfit was carefully planned and considered), and dizzying views of the harbor.

The Honeymoon: St. Lucia
The Suite: Two-Bedroom Villa at the Ladera Resort

Unlike more developed Caribbean islands, such as Aruba and the Bahamas, the sparsely populated island-nation of Saint Lucia still maintains a sense of unspoiled, exotic beauty. Its landscapes of pristine beaches and mountainous terrain are among the most stunning you’ll find anywhere in the Caribbean — especially so at the Ladera Resort, where views of the twin Pitons seem endless. Privacy is paramount here — there are just 32 villas on the property — and most rooms have private plunge pools. Want a bigger watering hole to splash around in? Try the Infinity Lagoon Pool, which may very well take your just-wedded breath away.

The Honeymoon: Paris, France
The Suite: Honeymoon Suite at Hotel Le Bristol

If the City of Lights doesn’t seem romantic to you, well, then, you’re just not romantic. Paris is a premiere honeymoon destination — great for culture-lovers and fashionistas alike — and thus requires a rather perfect stay. Look no further than the famed Hotel Le Bristol, which exudes luxury from the moment you step in the marble lobby. Make sure to take a few cuddly pictures in the hotel’s epic private gardens or on the glass-housed sun terrace; however, the Honeymoon Suite is where you really get the full “five-star” experience: Each room is impeccably furnished and decorated, the balcony provides glorious views, and the bed is supremely comfortable — despite a slightly dated comforter. But the real highlight has got to be the incredible bathroom, which we’d just die for with its well-lit vanities, bidet, and deep soak tub.

The Honeymoon: Turks & Caicos
The Suite: The Beachfront Penthouse Suite at the Gansevoort Turks & Caicos, a Wymara Resort

beachfront-penthouse-suite

Turks and Caicos has a reputation for being one of the most exclusive Caribbean islands, and deservedly so. The Beachfront Penthouse Suite at the Gansevoort Turks and Caicos is one of the island’s sleekest and swankiest options. Partiers will appreciate the hotel’s live DJ sets on weekend nights, but those seeking seclusion won’t have a problem in a private suite that spills out onto the pristine beaches of Grace Bay. And should you two decide to get out of that incredible bed (or tub, as the case may be), your buffet breakfast is au gratis. Bring on the bacon, y’all!

The Honeymoon: Puerto Morelos, Mexico
The Suite:  Preferred Club Master Suite at the Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa – All Inclusive

preferred-club-honeymoon-suite

Puerto Morelos, located halfway between Cancun and Playa Del Carmen, offers the perfect balance of the two, more touristy regions, blending a party atmosphere from the Spring Break Capital with a beachy, relaxed vibe. Perhaps one of the most luxurious all-inclusives in Mexico, the Dreams Riviera Cancun — a true megaresort, with over 400 rooms — tends to attract families with its myriad entertainment options. But couples shouldn’t falter: the attractive, airy guest rooms are downright romantic. Teak wood and marble floors create an ambiance of understated elegance, and the massive bathrooms (all with separate showers and Jacuzzi tubs) are a real treat.
