3 Unforgettable Honeymoon Getaways

Planning Advice, Mindy's Memos

Hi friends! Planning a wedding is great and all, but what about that honeymoon?! Your honeymoon is the perfect opportunity to spend some quality, romantic time with your new spouse – and decompress from the hustle and bustle of your wedding. So it’s natural you want to plan the perfect getaway. Luckily, SPG Resorts has you covered. They have amazing properties all over that would be perfect for any dream honeymoon. Here are a few of my favorites:

The Royal Hawaiian Resort (Waikiki, Hawaii)

Hawaii is the quintessential place for a honeymoon…and for good reason! The Royal Hawaiian resort is simply beautiful and evokes that vintage, grandeur romance that I love. The Moorish-Spanish architecture, the sparkling blue Pacific Ocean and so many amenities – what more could you ask for?

The resort has lots of deluxe room and suite accommodations in its Historic Wing and its modern Mailani Tower. If you really want to treat yourself, the Royal Suite Experience is the ultimate indulgence. You get a personal concierge, daily reserved chaise lounges on the beach, a chef’s selection for nightly turndown, Frette robes and so much more.

And there’s so much to do! It’s Hawaii after all. You can enjoy a romantic Oceanside dinner at Azure restaurant, get a little adventurous with some beach activities or simply relax with a couple’s massage at Waikiki’s only indoor/outdoor garden spa. Pictured above is Waikiki’s only oceanfront luau dinner show, Aha Aina, which you can enjoy every Monday and select Thursday evenings. And of course, there’s lots and lots of shopping and dining close by at the bustling Kalakaua Avenue. It’s the perfect spot for any couple.

They’ve also got a promotional offer going here! You can earn bonus Starpoints® when you host your wedding at participating SPG Hotels of Hawaii. Apply your Starpoints toward free honeymoon nights at SPG hotels and resorts in Hawaii, Paris, Bora Bora and more. A destination wedding AND exotic honeymoon? Not too shabby.

The Canyon Suites at the Phoenician (Scottsdale, AZ)

Ready for a fresh, contemporary experience for your honeymoon? The Canyon Suites in Scottsdale is a lovely place! It’s very exclusive – it’s the only Forbes Five-Star/AAA Five Diamond resort in the Valley. The resort was completely redone last year – so I mean it when I say “fresh”! It was redesigned with contemporary elegance in mind, allowing you to stay anew in style.

I especially love how the style of the resort really honors the location. And of course, the service and amenities here are unbeatable. You get complimentary breakfast, complimentary resort charge and complimentary valet parking. They also offer a chauffeured luxury car service, indigenous arrival amenities, priority reservations at all the restaurants onsite, cabana rentals at the gorgeous pool, bicycle rentals and so much more. The best part? Scottsdale has year-round warm weather and sunshine, so this is an ideal getaway for any season.

The Equinox, a Luxury Collection Golf Resort & Spa (Vermont)

Ready for an elegant escape to Vermont’s lush green mountains? The Equinox is the perfect spot. Not only do you get a resort with breathtaking views and unbeatable tranquility, but there’s tons of activities for the two of you to enjoy. There’s the spa, the Land Rover Driving School, Troon Golf Course, falconry, glassblowing classes, horseback riding and, of course, great hiking on the Equinox mountain, which is only steps from your room!

I also love how you get a taste of the local, small town feel here. You can visit the Farmer’s Market on Saturdays or take a short road trip to see some hidden treasures like JJ Hapgood, the cutest eatery with fresh, local produce and cheeses. And I must say, Vermont is a foodie’s heaven! Some of my top picks? Silver Fork, Chantaclear, Chop House, Perfect Wife and Reluctant Panther. Yum!

Just looking at all these photos makes me ready for a second honeymoon!
