You did it. You tied the knot, and now you get your just reward: a spectacular honeymoon in paradise with your new husband. And while your post-wedding getaway will be amazing no matter where you stay or what to do, there are a some resorts that go above and beyond to make their just-married couples feel special. Translation: They give seriously cool freebies. Here are just a few things some resorts give away gratis.
A Personal Bar
The The Andaz in Maui, Hawaii (a sexy hotspot) indulges newlyweds with a do-it-yourself mai-tai cart, waiting in the room on arrival. It's loaded with everything you need to squeeze, zest, and stir your way to the perfect cocktail.
Cute Post-Wedding Décor
Sure, the Bucuti Beach Resort in Aruba gift honeymooners with a trifecta of treats — cheese, chocolate, and champagne — but their best wedding present is the "Just Married" sign you'll find waiting on your door when you arrive.
A Pre-Planned Date Night
The romantic seaside Maroma Belmond Resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico welcomes couple with a bed topped with rose petals and welcome margaritas — just try to drop off your bags and head down to the beach after that greeting. Then again, they also provide his and her sandals, so you may be tempted to see how they look in the sand.
A Seriously Cool Tribute to Your Union
Honeymoon at the GoldenEye in Jamaica and the resort will plant a piece of coral off the coast of the resort in Oracabessa Bay in honor of you and your new hubby.
This luxe Como Resort in the Indian Ocean greets honeymooners — which they deem as anyone who has been married in the last six months — with white sand beaches, gorgeous turquoise-colored water, and (ta-dah!) complimentary half-board stays, when they book a week at the resort. That means the two of you are treated to breakfast and dinner the first day, and every day thereafter.
Even if you're not staying at one of these five places, be sure to call ahead and ask the concierge if your resort or hotel does anything special for honeymooners. You'd be surprised to find out how many places do!
