Forget everything you thought you knew about all-inclusive resorts: These easy one-price properties are ideal for honeymooners, and way more romantic than you could ever imagine. The newest resorts are lavishing couples with haute perks and serious service. Butler, anyone?
Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort Montego Bay, Jamaica
Stay in one of the swim-up suites and not only will you get to take the plunge from your poolside patio, you'll also get a personal butler to tend to your every whim. And unlike most other one-price resort chains, this one is actually all-inclusive — your stay at Sandals even includes scuba and golf.
All-inclusive swim-up suite from $741 for two
Le Blanc Spa Resort Cancún, Mexico
Cucumber mint or vanilla sandalwood? Goose feather or lavender scented? Every room at this tranquil adults-only retreat comes equipped with aromatherapy and pillow menus, plus Bulgari bath salts for your whirlpool tub for two. No wonder Julia Roberts loves this beach-side resort.
All-inclusive doubles from $672
The BodyHoliday, St. Lucia
A free daily massage at one of the best spas in the Caribbean? Yes, please. This health-conscious resort just underwent a $20 million renovation, which makes now the perfect time to unpack at one of its whitewashed villas. Live out your Katniss and Peeta fantasies by day (archery, hiking, and fencing are on the activities list), and dine on sushi at the AAA-diamond-rated Tao by night. And if you love to eat local, you're in luck. All veggies are sourced from the resorts hydroponic garden.

Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
From horseback rides to delicious dinners made with organic ingredients, the fabulous freebies are endless at this tropical resort. If you stay in a suite for more than seven nights, you'll be upgraded to the Art of Romance Honeymoon Package, which includes generous goodies like a rose-petal turndown, a couples massage, and (spoiler alert!) a surprise dinner on the beach, complete with a guitar serenade.

Make it Even Easier!
"Establish a relationship with the concierge before you go, even if it's just to let him know that you're honeymooners, and ask for ways to make your trip feel more special. If you tell him your likes and dislikes, he'll spread the news to the other staff so they can anticipate what makes you happy before you set foot in your room," recommends Martha Gaughen, of Brownell Travel in Atlanta
P.S.: If you book a room at Le Blanc Spa Resort before April 30, 2014 you can get up to $1,500 in resort credits. That adds up to a lot of exciting activities, delicious meals, and exfoliation treatments!
