8 Epic Honeymoon Suites Worth Shelling Out For
If there's ever a time that calls for booking a once-in-a-lifetime hotel room, it's your honeymoon. Whether you’re looking for a grande dame in the heart of Paris, a whitewashed retreat on the cliffs of Santorini, or a private beachfront villa in the Seychelles, there are epic suites worthy of whatever post-nuptial getaway suits you (and your beau) best. Of course, an expensive price tag isn’t what makes a suite honeymoon-worthy—it's also the unique amenities, top-notch service, postcard-perfect views, and supreme privacy that help deliver a truly luxurious, romantic space for two. Here are a few of our favorites that check all the boxes.
Sonevi Jani, Maldives
Room to Book: A One-Bedroom Water Retreat with Slide
The fact that entry-level villas at this barefoot-chic resort in the Noonu Atoll are nearly 5,000 square feet should be enough to warrant inclusion on this list. However, factor in the totally out-there amenities—including a two-story slide into the lagoon, a retractable stargazing roof above your bed, a spacious upstairs roof deck, multiple sunken dining tables, a full-size swimming pool, and more—and you’ve got all the boxes checked (and then some).
Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan, Indonesia
Room to Book: A Riverfront One-Bedroom Villa
The Ayung River is the lifeblood of Bali. Like an artery to a heart, it continuously feeds the island with the harmonizing force of nature. There’s no more peaceful sound to wake up and fall asleep to than the gentle current of the Ayung, which winds its way through the lush grounds of this Ubud resort. Whether you’re lounging in your riverfront villa’s upstairs sala, outdoor deck, or spacious plunge pool, the spiritual vibes of the river will bring you closer to nature—and to one another.

Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina, Hawaii
Room to Book: The Penthouse Suite
You might not use both bedrooms in the 17th-floor retreat (unless one of you snores) at the Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina, but we're willing to bet you'll get your money's worth on the expansive, 800-square-foot oceanfront terrace. There, you can request an alfresco morning yoga session, post up for sunset cocktails, or plan a private dinner (prepared by the chef in the suite’s own service kitchen). During the winter months, keep your eyes peeled for North Pacific humpback whales, which make the 3,000-mile journey south from the Gulf of Alaska and can be spotted breaching just beyond the shores of your penthouse.
Hôtel Plaza Athénée, Paris
Room to Book: The Prestige Suite
Grande dame hotels are a dime a dozen in the City of Light, but none more historic and luxurious than this prestigious Avenue Montaigne address. The Eiffel Tower views are so good from the apartment-style Prestige Suite, you almost don’t even have to visit it in person. However, you’ll want to pry yourselves away from the room for brunch at the glistening Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée restaurant or champagne on the alfresco terrace, which overlooks stores from the likes of Dior, Prada, Valentino, and more.

Fregate Private Island Hotel, Seychelles
Room to Book: A Private Pool Villa
There are just 17 one-bedroom villas at the Seychelles’ most luxurious private-island resort (this is where George and Amal honeymooned, after all), so don’t expect to see other guests as you beach-hop from Grand Anse to Anse Victorian to Anse Macquereau in your personal “buggy” (golf cart). Request one of the villas overlooking Praslin and Félicité islands so you can admire them from a distance as you lounge by your full-size pool before a candlelit dinner of lobster Thermidor served in your private outdoor sala.
Wilderness Safaris Mombo Camp, Botswana
Room to Book: A Tented Suite
When it comes to safari digs, it doesn’t get more epic than the newly refurbished tented suites at this exclusive Okavango Delta lodge. Each day, you can choose a different siesta location in between game drives: there’s a study-slash-bar, a suspended-in-air daybed, a feather-soft king-size bed, and, heck, even a bronze soaking tub.
Room to Book: An Edge Villa
This newly launched, 2,913-passenger ship is not only upping standards for the cruise industry, but also honeymoons at large. South African designer Kelly Hoppen gave the six duplex Edge Villas an airy Malibu-chic vibe that brings the outside in like never before. The staggering 950-square-foot villas feature two-story windows, a private outdoor terrace with Jacuzzi, a full-size soaking tub, generous living spaces, and a dining table for four—so you can invite new friends for an en-suite meal served from any of the ship’s restaurants.
Andronis Boutique Hotel, Santorini, Greece
Room to Book: A Prestige Suite with Infinity Pool
Whitewashed hideouts are scattered all across the island of Santorini, but Andronis’ adults-only flagship resort is arguably its most romantic. Here, suites are built in cliff-side caves and decorated in the traditional Cycladic style. The Prestige Suite nabs the top spot thanks to an open floor plan and spacious private terrace overlooking the caldera. Once you drag yourselves out of bed, pull on a stylish swimsuit in your full-size dressing room before indulging in an all-day lounge session beside your personal infinity pool and Jacuzzi.
