A honeymoon is fraught with expectations—it's probably one of the most expensive, most anticipated trips you'll take. And since many spots have similar features (a spa, good food, one or more pools), how do you choose? We suggest clearing everything from your mind except two questions: Who are you, and what do you want from this experience? We've picked a few destinations to make that picture in your head a reality.

The Isolationists: You want to roll like Robinson Crusoe...but with a nicer place to sleep.

North Island, Seychelles.

A self-described "Noah's Ark": People arrive in twos at this Seychelles island sanctuary dedicated to preserving the local flora and fauna. And, with only 11 beachfront villas, guests get a lot of attention, too. To reach North Island, couples take a 20-minute helicopter ride or a catamaran from the island of Mahe. The villas, handcrafted by local artisans, are sublimely spacious—each has two bedrooms, two showers, a private plunge pool, a massage area, and a deck. If you're looking to re-create that famous surf kiss in From Here to Eternity, request Villa 11, which has a private beach. Should you want to see other people, public spaces include a library, a gym, and two bars. For activities, try night diving, sea kayaking, day trips to neighboring islands and, if you visit between March and November, watching sea turtles hatch on the beach.
