07 Aug Romantic All-Inclusive Resorts for Couples and Honeymooners
True to our name, we at Enchanted Honeymoons Travel take pride in our expertise in planning honeymoons and romantic getaways. We want you to enjoy every second you spend with your honey in tropical paradise. With hundreds of resorts catering to couples and honeymooner, how do you choose the right one? Below we’ve highlighted ten of our favorite all-inclusive resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean for couples. We trust these resorts to deliver on romance, luxury, and service, so you don’t have to worry about a thing!
1. Jade Mountain Resort, St. Lucia
Our number one spot for romantic all-inclusives belongs to Jade Mountain Resort. This breathtaking property consists of 24 suites in a private section inside the Anse Chastanet Resort. Every suite features a unique feature: one “wall” is completely open to the mountains. Nothing separates you from the outside world, but even so you will be pleasantly surprised to find that your room still feels private and romantic. In addition, the open wall allows unobstructed views of the Pitons, which are the two mountains (otherwise known as volcanic plugs) pictured above. What is not included in your room? A television or telephone. Pure relaxation awaits!
2. Royal Hideaway Playacar, Playa del Carmen
The name of this resort could not be more accurate! If you are looking to truly “hide away” with your S.O., look no further than the Royal Hideaway Playacar. This ultra-private escape has only 11 villas and a maximum occupancy of 200 guests. You will feel like you are staying in your own fully-staffed vacation home rather than an all-inclusive resort. Each of the 11 rooms comes with a private concierge to ensure that all of your needs are met.
3. Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita, Riviera Maya
This romantic property truly delivers the zen-factor. The decor throughout this 90-suite boutique resort blends Mayan tradition with modern luxury. We love this resort because of its impressive perks. Enjoy a bottle of champagne delivered to your suite daily, private round-trip airport transfers, and a 1-hour sunset catamaran cruise that takes off right from your resort beach!
4. Palafitos at El Dorado Maroma, Playa del Carmen
The Palafitos (or overwater bungalows), extensions of the El Dorado Maroma Resort, were completed in Fall 2016. These are the only overwater bungalows you will find in Mexico! The 30 new palafitos boast glass bottom floors, private plunge pools, a personal sundeck, and an outdoor shower. In addition, guests staying at the palafitos have exclusive access to an overwater restaurant and an overwater spa, as well as a private beach area. Of course, each palafito also comes with your own personal butler!
5. Le Blanc Spa Resort, Cancun
We would describe Le Blanc as sexy, modern, tropical, and romantic. French-inspired details, such as Juliette balconies, are a perfect balance to the modern decor. You won’t soon forget the stunning infinity pool, which is even more breathtaking set against the clean white structure of the property itself. The luxurious spa-vibe throughout the resort has even drawn celebrity guests (such as Julia Roberts)! During your stay, enjoy 24-hour butler service and don’t leave without getting a treatment or two at the BlancSpa. The 7-course meal at french-fusion eatery, Lumiere, is another thing that cannot be missed!
6. Sandals Grande Antigua
We love sending our honeymoon clients to Sandals Resorts because of their emphasis on couples and romance. Sandals Grande Antigua was recognized as the #1 Caribbeans Honeymoon Resort by the World Travel Awards in five out of the last eight years, and the Caribbean’s #1 Romantic Resort for the past two years. In addition to incredible service and luxurious accommodations, this property sits on Dickinson Bay, which is one of the largest and most beautiful beaches in Antigua. This resort has two distinct sides. The Caribbean Grove, which is nestled into the palm-filled gardens down by the beach, and the Mediterranean Village, which is built into the cliffs towering above the sea.
7. Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort, Cabo San Lucas
Pueblo Bonit0 Pacifica is the romantic escape in Cabo. The Mediterranean-inspired property stuns its guests with the Sea of Cortez as the backdrop. You’ll fall in love with the casually elegant vibe at this resort. Pueblo Bonito is a great choice for couples that enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle. Our perfect day at Pueblo Bonit0 Pacifica would begin with a sunrise stroll along the 2.5 mile stretch of private beach attached to the resort. The 154-suite resort is expanding and will open 54 additional suites in Fall 2017. Furthermore, six of these new suites will have their own private plunge pool with an ocean view.
8. Secrets Maroma, Playa del Carmen
Located on the incredible Maroma Beach, Secrets Maroma is home to 400 suites. Every single one of these suites includes a private plunge pool. In addition, guests can take advantage of 6 huge pools, and a wide variety of activities (think dance lessons and windsurfing). In order to wind down, consider booking an appointment for a couples massage. The 13,000 square-foot Secrets Spa by Pevonia is the ideal spot for ultimate relaxation with the one you love.
9. Excellence Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Excellence Punta Cana has 464 suites yet feels peaceful and boutique-y due to its expansive property size. Even in peak season, you will not feel crowded by other guests at this resort. For added privacy and luxury, ask your travel agent for details on the Excellence Club level rooms. Club benefits include express check-in and check-out service, a private VIP lounge with snacks and bar service, and private beach area. This is a must for honeymooners!
10. Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit, Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico
Finally, we have Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit. With a sexy name like “Grand Velas”, it’s no surprise that this resort caters to the romantic. Grand Velas boasts three fine-dining options, unbeatable service, and a stunning, tiered pool with a view of Banderas Bay. In addition, Grand Velas offers unique spa treatments at the Balinese-inspired Grand Velas spa. Most noteworthy, the Pearl and Moon treatment in which therapists use real crushed pearls to leave you with a radiant shimmer. For golfers, ask your travel agent about the Unlimited Golf Package in order to get access to two 18-hole courses at nearby Vista Vallarta Golf Club.
