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.

Soneva Gili, Maldives

Wow factors: Situated on Lankanfushi Island, in the middle of the Indian Ocean, Soneva Gili by Six Senses offers two-story, Villa Suites with an exotic, charming Swiss Family Robinson vibe. Each of the eco-friendly, open-air suites includes a lounge, a bedroom, and a bathroom with an outdoor shower. Sunbathe on the roof deck or the overwater sundeck, where the room service staff (who come and go via row boat) can set up a romantic sunset dinner.

When you do leave the room: Activities for two include diving lessons, picnics on private islands, swimming with dolphins, and excursions to the capital city of Malé. Or head to the spa to watch fish through the glass-paneled floor while being massaged.

Rates: From $1,215 per night
