Popular Honeymoon Destinations

Newly married couples have a nearly endless list of possible honeymoon destinations. Those who are willing to travel outside of the United States have the best available range of choices as some of the premier honeymoon locations are on islands. Below, we take a look at 5 of the best honeymoon destinations.

Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise

Those who are married in the fall or winter months can opt to enjoy a winter resort instead of a tropical island. Fairmont Chateau in Alberta, Canada, allows newlyweds to enjoy a slew of winter sports instead of suffering from sunburn on a scorching hot island. Couples will be able to enjoy snowmobiling, downhill skiing, cross country skiing, ice skating, ice fishing, dog sledding, and even snowshoeing along the glacier fed lake. Newlyweds who prefer to relax indoors will enjoy the Fairmont Chateau's luxury accommodations with fireplaces and large spas. They can also partake in a sleigh ride into the glorious Canadian wilderness. It doesn't get more romantic than that. Spring and summer newlyweds will enjoy the resort's access to Lake Louise for jet skiing, fishing, snorkeling, and whitewater rafting. The resort also provides horseback rides so that couples can experience the outdoors together in a unique fashion that they'll never forget.

Walt Disney World

Florida's Walt Disney World is one of the more popular honeymoon hotspots. It really does provide a fairytale style honeymoon that makes women feel like Cinderella and men like Prince Charming. Disney offers several unique honeymoon packages like the honeymoon escape, the romantic escape, and the deluxe escape. The romantic escape is extra special as it lets newlyweds enjoy a stay at one of Disney's many resorts before taking to the waters on a Disney cruise to the Bahamas. Each honeymoon package offers park passes, hotel accommodations, and the choice of a couple's style spa treatment or honeymoon pictures.

Camino Real Acapulco Diamante

Honeymooners should give the Camino Real Acapulco Diamante in Mexico serious consideration. John Kennedy and Jackie Kennedy enjoyed their honeymoon here and the locale is still top notch today. Camino Real is located in a central area that allows newlyweds to experience all that Acapulco has to offer during the night while enjoying the beach during the day. The warm water allows for swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving during all months of the year. Camino Real's impressive rooms provide couples with a scenic view of the private Pichilingue Beach. The resort also features several fine dining options and two separate pools that can only be accessed by adults.

Hyatt Regency Aruba Beach Resort & Casino

The Hyatt Regency in Noord, Aruba, offers fun, sun, and gambling. Aruba's climate and beaches are considered to be the best in the world. Although it is only 6 miles wide and 20 miles long, the area is full of casinos, restaurants, nightclubs, pool complexes, and beaches. Couples will enjoy the resorts' spa treatments for couples and amazing restaurants that feature tapas, sushi, and ever popular fajitas and margaritas. During carnival time, Aruba's Copacabana Casino staff attempts to transform the casino into a real life Rio.

Caneel Bay Resort

The St. John Virgin Islands boasts a 5,000 acre National Park that features the Caneel Bay Resort. It is in the middle of 7 different beaches and provides a slew of luxurious pampering treatments and couple oriented activities for newlyweds. Honeymooners will enjoy the Caneel Bay Resort's beach, kayaking, scuba diving, and the resort's couples oriented yoga classes. Some of the resort's rooms have gorgeous ocean views while others have spacious patios that let honeymooners step right out onto the beach sand. Those who spare no expenses will opt for the resort's private cottage option that is perfect for newly married couples.
