Best for Active Travelers: Sundance Resort, Sundance, Utah
Robert Redford's idyllic, 98 cottage mountain resort, just outside Park City, is perfect for an adventure honeymoon—it's all about reconnecting with nature.

Best East Coast Summer: The Wauwinet, Nantucket, Massachusetts
This warm, cozy inn feels blissfully-isolated from the world: Request a room that faces the windswept beach—perfect for sunset strolls—and don't miss dinner at Topper's, the island's best restaurant. Your five-course feast might feature diver scallop ceviche, or butter-poached lobster with a madras curry sabayon.
Best Winter Honeymoon: Little Nell, Aspen, Colorado
Looking for a winter honeymoon spot? This is Aspen's only, ski-in, ski-out hotel, and the staff is unbelievably gracious. The activity options? Hole up in one of the 92 warm, earth-toned rooms, styled by famous designer Holly Hunt; borrow an Audi for a half-day mountain drive; or sip Veuve Cliquot 11,000 feet up at the world's first ski-in, ski-out champagne bar.
Best Southern: Inn at Palmetto Bluff, Bluffton, South Carolina

Best Great Smoky Mountains: Blackberry Farm, Walland, Tennessee

Best Cabin Getaway: Triple Creek Ranch, Darby, Montana
Picture 23 ultra-luxe cedar cabins, all with wood-burning fireplaces and hot tubs, set on 600 acres of wildly picturesque Big Sky country. Even better, this is an all-inclusive resort, so meals, house wines, and adventure activities like fly-fishing, snowshoeing, and guided nature walks, are part of the price.
Best Disney: Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Orlando, California
This red-gabled, Victorian-inspired hotel is one of Disney's poshest places to stay. We love the stunning lagoon setting and soaring, five-story high lobby (but look down—characters are artfully embedded here and there in the marble floor.) Don't miss a fancy, six-course dinner at award-winning Victoria and Albert's, where guests get a keepsake menu.
Best Spa: Sanctuary Resort at Camelback Mountain, Scottsdale, Arizona
World-travelers Beyoncé and Jay-Z "mini-mooned" at this gorgeous, mountain-meets-desert honeymoon resort. The 105 brick-walled casitas all have Frette linens and private patios, plus the spa is top-notch—think 12, indoor/outdoor treatment rooms, a meditation garden, and a Watsu pool.
Best Luxury: Four Seasons the Biltmore Santa Barbara, California
Hollywood-types (Halle Berry, Katy Perry) head here to sunbathe on Butterfly Beach and soak in the lovely Spanish-colonial setting. If you're up for an adventure, borrow the in-house bikes and hit the 3-mile coastal path, or just lounge by the Olympic-size pool.
Best Wine: San Ysidro Ranch, California
This California wine country resort offers 41 spacious cottages—all with plush four-poster beds and fireplaces—nestled in the Montecito foothills. Hilary Duff stayed in the famous Kennedy cottage (yes, that's where Jackie and JFK honeymooned) on her wedding night.

Request the table in the kitchen to watch Chef Christopher Kostow in action.
Best Mini-Moon: Shutters on the Beach, Santa Monica, California
This California beach resort is ideal for a mini-moon, or a stopover on the way to Fiji or Tahiti. The airy, country-meets-beach rooms all face the Pacific, and have sumptuous marble bathrooms—with peekaboo windows. Plus, you're steps from the iconic Santa Monica Pier.
Best Desert: Amangiri, Canyon Point, Utah
This low-lying, 34-suite desert oasis seamlessly blends in with the surrounding rock formations—the gorgeous pool even wraps around a massive boulder. After exploring nearby wonder such as the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell and Monument Valley, head to the spa, which has two outdoor treatment terraces with unreal mesa views.
Most Spiritual: Enchantment Resort, Sedona, Arizona
