Top 10 Honeymoon Hotels Worldwide

A pool at Amanpuri in Phuket, Thailand



A guest room at Amanpuri in Phuket, Thailand

In Thai, the word Amanpuri means "place of peace," and if you choose to honeymoon at this remote resort, that's exactly what you'll find. Situated within the scenic grounds of a coconut plantation overlooking the Andaman Sea, this sophisticated property features a handsome collection of pavilions and villas connected via elevated walkways to the private white sand beach. Tucked into a coconut grove, the spa invites you and your beloved to begin your day with guided meditation in a hillside sala, followed by soothing massages in an open-air Thai pavilion. As for where you should retire after twilight drinks on the beach terrace, we suggest one of the chic Partial Ocean Pool Pavilions, with a secluded private pool and romantic sea view.
