A great hotel room goes beyond a plush bed and nice soaps: It captures the spirit of its location and becomes as much a part of your trip as the sights you see and the adventures you have. It should leave you speechless upon arrival and have you talking about it years later. Here are seven breathtaking spots for your honeymoon.

Amanbagh, India

Wow factors: With architecture inspired by the building style of India's Mughal Empire (think: the Taj Mahal), the dramatic Pool Pavilions at this resort near Jaipur offer a taste of what life as a maharaja might have been like. Enter the pavilion's foyer through your private courtyard. Inside you'll find regal interiors featuring pillars, domed ceilings, and scalloped archways leading to the living area made of pink marble. The bedroom features a king-sized bed with a marble-and-mirror headboard, while the bathroom includes a separate dressing area with twin vanities and a deep marble bathtub. A private swimming pool and lounge complete the opulent experience.

When you do leave the room: The resort, whose name means "peaceful garden," lives up to its calming moniker with manicured grounds, complimentary yoga and nature walks, and a spa specializing in Eastern treatments. Adventurers can travel by camel to the area's ancient ruins.

Rates: From $1,250 per night; other rooms from $600 per night
