If there’s one vacation where you want to feel like you’re in the literal lap of luxury, it’s undoubtedly on your honeymoon. As they say, you only get married once—you might as well enjoy it to the fullest. But, let’s be honest, most of us don’t have an unlimited budget that allows such lavish vacations. The good news is there are still plenty of honeymoon hotels worldwide beaming with glamorous luxury that won't break the bank.
Whether you're looking for a tropical escape or the opportunity to roam romantic city streets, we have just the spot for you. Here, eight luxury honeymoon hotels to fit your budget.
Maya Beach Hotel and Bistro, Placencia, Belize
If you’re hoping to honeymoon in an exotic, tropical location that doesn’t cost a fortune, consider the beach-bountiful, culturally diverse Central American country of Belize. Stay at Maya Beach Hotel, a charming boutique property with rates starting at $119 per night that’s ideally intimate for a honeymooning couple, offering just 13 units, ranging from standard one-bedroom hotel rooms to beachfront cabanas. All rooms offer Caribbean views (just steps from the sea), private porches or balconies, and hammocks for ultimate relaxation.
Ca' Sagredo Hotel, Venice, Italy
Due to its romantic charm and incredibly small size, hotel prices in this stunning, canal-connected city are typically the deal-breaker for most honeymooning couples looking to splurge more on dining and sightseeing than their actual sleeping arrangements. But the glamorous Ca' Sagredo Hotel on the Grand Canal, which once belonged to Venice’s ambassador to Rome in the 17th century, has all the opulence honeymooners are looking for with rates starting at $310 per night. In addition to views across the crystal-clear water, guests enjoy access to the hotel’s panoramic waterside L’Alcova restaurant as well as a trendy rooftop terrace, exclusive sightseeing tours, and cooking classes.
Entre Cielos, Mendoza, Argentina
Wine lovers, pack your bags. Entre Cielos is a gorgeous, 16-room resort situated on 20 acres of land in the Mendoza countryside—eight of which are filled with Malbec vines. In addition to its serene beauty, Mendoza is one of the largest wine regions in all of Latin America, so if you and your soon-to-be-spouse enjoy sipping vino with a side of manchego, this might be the location for you. With rates starting at $353 per night, stylish rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows, and views of working vineyards and the snow-capped Andes mountains, this is a stunning spot.
Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbour, Auckland, New Zealand
Who would have thought you could travel to a desirable destination on the other side of the world and pay less for a hotel than you would at home? At the stylish Auckland luxury hotel, Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbour, you can have your fancy stay and enjoy it too! Starting at $171 per night and boasting panoramic views of Waitemata Harbour, this architectural landmark pays homage to the country's rich maritime history. In addition to prime access to Auckland’s top tourist sites, honeymooners can spend some time at the hotel’s award-winning spa and alfresco dining cafe.
Marigot Bay Resort & Marina, St. Lucia
Located alongside St. Lucia’s coveted Marigot Bay, Marigot Bay Resort and Marina thoughtfully designs a custom luxury experience starting at $236 per night, and stays are personalized to each couple who visits. Honeymooners can select all-inclusive plans specially curated for just-married couples, including meals and beverages of all kinds (yes, booze included), a couples massage, a chocolate tasting for two, and even rum tasting in a rum cave.
Auberge Saint-Antoine, Quebec City, Canada
For lovers looking to travel north for their honeymoon, this stunning hotel set in the heart of Quebec City’s historic district (and UNESCO World Heritage Site!) offers the ideal combo of romance coupled with eclectic city culture. History buffs will love to know that Auberge Saint-Antoine was actually built on a major archaeological site and still displays a collection of artefacts that offer guests a glimpse of the city’s rich history. Rates start at $217 per night and honeymooners can enjoy heated floors and fireplaces in select suites, breakfast in bed, spa treatments for two, cocktails at the Artefact lobby bar and dinner at the hotel’s signature Chez Muffy restaurant. The hotel is also steps from major Quebec City landmarks, including the Citadel, Petit-Champlain District, Place Royale, the Plains of Abraham, and the Parliament Building.
Oceans Edge Key West Hotel & Marina, Key West, Florida
The Oceans Edge Key West Hotel & Marina was the first of its kind to be built on Stock Island, one of the seven that make up the Florida Keys. It’s also the largest resort in all of Key West, spanning 20 acres of oceanfront land built at the edge of both the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico. And with rates starting at $180 per night, this option certainly offers something for everyone.
The resort has its own share of offerings that might keep you within its boundaries for the majority of your trip, including six swimming pools, chef-driven all-day dining, a full-service waterfront bar and restaurant, on-site Starbucks, and water sports. But if you do care to head to town, it’s only a short four-mile car (or bike) ride away.
Spa Village Resort, Bali, Indonesia
For an idyllic island honeymoon that’s exotic, tropical, and rustic all at once, consider venturing to the Spa Village Resort in the remote village of Tembok, on Bali’s northeastern coast. Black sand and volcanic mountains surround the resort, exuding a haven of spirituality and calm. A typical day includes a daily spa treatment, creative workshops, cooking sessions, and access to yoga and meditation classes. The area also boasts a number of cultural activities, including squid fishing on a traditional Jukong and tours to nearby towns. The retreat, starting at $360 per night, offers luxury accommodations that merge simple western elegance with traditional Balinese dwellings. Plus, honeymoon suites and one-bedroom villas even come with their own private entry and a plunge pool.
