Do you want accommodations that have a “wow” factor for your honeymoon without breaking the bank with airfare to exotic locations? We have traveled to the Caribbean and beyond to find these awe-inspiring rooms for your honeymoon. And, best of all, they are all within easy flight access from the east coast! From caves to castles, we have found some pretty amazing spots to share with you!

First up is The Caves hotel in Jamaica. This resort is located in Negril, about 90 minutes from the Montego Bay airport. Each of the 12 cottages are completely unique and sit atop the Caribbean’s most beautiful sea caves. Stop by for dinner in the cave restaurant or a detox spa treatment in the cave spa, which you can use even if you aren’t staying here.

Next, we’re talking overwater bungalows. It used to be that you had to travel to the Maldives, Fiji, or Tahiti to experience these luxurious rooms.. Recently, however, Sandals resorts and Karisma Hotels have remedied this situation! Sandals Royal Caribbean located in Montego Bay Jamaica offers 5 overwater villa suites and 12 overwater bungalows. Sandals is also building similar bungalows in St. Lucia and at South Coast Jamaica (ready December 2017).

Heading a few hundred miles west of Jamaica, let’s look at El Dorado Maroma, named best beach in the world many years over. This is a small boutique property that is the perfect setting for a super romantic honeymoon. The palafitos, or overwater bungalows, are complete with outdoor shower, butler service, and a glass bottom floor. Guests staying in the palafitos gain access to an overwater grill, wine bar and spa.

For this special occasion in your life, check out the Castle honeymoon suite located at Sanctuary Cap Cana in the Dominican Republic. These all-inclusive rooms, located on the 3rd floor of the fortress, have been remodeled to compete perfection and luxury. The suite has a master bedroom, gorgeous sitting room, and spectacular outdoor space complete with plunge pool, sun loungers, and ocean view, of course.

What list would be complete without a tree house? Okay, it’s not really a tree house, but the canopy suite at the Four Seasons Costa Rica will have you feeling like you are sleeping with the monkeys without sacrificing the ultimate luxury. Located on a hillside with jungle and possible ocean views, this location is sure to impress. This property is the only Forbes 5 star rated resort in Central and South America.

And last, but certainly not least, the Mansion at Chic located in the Dominican Republic. Why not stay in a 11,500 square foot mansion for your honeymoon? The mansion is located at an all-inclusive resort where you will have full access. It also comes with a private pool, hot tub, butler service, private round trip airport transfers, an exclusive private chef experience, private pool cabana with attendant, and a complimentary spa service. Now THAT is the “wow” factor!

So, whether you wish is to stay in a castle, tree house, or just a really cool room, check out one of these spectacular sites for the perfect honeymoon ambiance. These are sure to leave you with picturesque unforgettable memories for your special journey.
