The 3 best ways to plan a private, romantic honeymoon
By Aimee Heckel
Finally — you and your new partner get to be alone and celebrate your vows.
Whereas weddings too often feel like you are putting them on for your guests, the honeymoon is a great time to stop and focus on the reason why you made these life promises.
So picking the right honeymoon destination is crucial. Often, many all-inclusive resorts may be less-than-romantic, with kids loudly splashing in the pools or Spring Break parties trashing the beach.
Here are our three favorite private, romantic honeymoon inspirations — just for you two.
1. A room with a private pool. We’re not saying this is designed for skinny dipping and avoiding tan lines, but we’re not saying it isn’t either.
The five-star Capella Pedregal resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, is about as private as it gets. You can only access this resort through a long tunnel through the mountain. Each room comes with a private terrace and pool. Book the Capella room for ultimate luxury — including a fireplace, shower for two and infinity pool with an ocean view.

2. Stay on a private island. Nikoi Island in Indonesia was named one of the world’s best private resort islands by Conde’ Nast Traveler. This remote, private island offers simple natural beauty, not high-end treatment, and a relaxing atmosphere that might be just what you need after hosting the biggest party of your life. Plus, the prices aren’t half bad, you know, for a private island and all.

3. Book a private yacht or boat. Charter a private yacht on the Caribbean and relax completely, while the crew handles all of the details. Because this is your personal vacation, you make the schedule. You don’t have to wait in long lines. You are the center of attention. As it should be, on your dream honeymoon.
