Romantic Honeymoon Suites

"Oahu’s Halekulani Hotel is located right on Waikiki Beach, and its history goes back a century. The oceanfront Orchid Suite has some of the best views of Diamond Head on Waikiki, along with an entertainment lounge, a high-end home theater and a wine cellar. The Orchid Suite has good karma, too: It’s on the site of what was once the hotel’s original honeymoon suite."-Amy Swanson
"Las Vegas isn’t just for bachelor or bachelorette parties. It’s huge for weddings, too, so it’s fitting that many hotels offer special honeymoon suites. Aria, a chic property that’s part of the new CityCenter complex, features Sky Suites that extend the Strip’s reputation for luxury. The suites feature floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Las Vegas skyline, a stone foyer and a high-end entertainment system. You can also control just about everything in the room — including the lighting, the temperature, the music and the draperies — from your bed via a touch-screen interface, and the room remembers your preferences. The Sky Suites are a relative bargain too, starting around $400/night"-Swanson
"The luxe Banyan Tree Seychelles is an all-villa hotel on Mahe Island, overlooking the Indian Ocean and a spectacular talcum-powder beach. The property’s Presidential Villa stands sentinel over a private cove, featuring a sundeck and an open-air living area along with luxurious furnishings. The villa’s private infinity pool overlooking the ocean is a recipe for dreamy bliss."-Swanson
"The Four Seasons’ Ty Warner Penthouse has an astounding view of Manhattan from the windows, but perhaps even more amazing scenery inside. Featuring the design talents of I.M. Pei, the penthouse has 25-foot-high ceilings, immense bay windows, multiple chandeliers, a Zen garden and décor inlaid with mother-of-pearl. The master bathroom has onyx on its floor, ceilings and walls, plus sinks carved from rock crystal and a balcony overlooking Central Park. This luxury doesn't come cheap, though: Expect to pay $35,000 for a night here."-Swanson
"The Over Water Royal Suite is exactly what it sounds like: a suite that literally hovers over the water, and deluxe enough to make you feel like royalty. The décor and architecture are Polynesian-inspired, with mahogany furniture, a four-post canopied bed and a thatched roof. Glass viewing panels in the floor let you watch the fish swim by underneath your suite. Rates run around $1,200/night."-Swanson
"Le Meurice’s Belle Etoile Royal Suite is pure Parisian indulgence. The private terrace alone is worth the trip: It covers almost 2,700 feet and offers 360-degree views of the City of Light, including the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the Louvre and the Arc de Triomphe. The views are stunning from the bedroom, too, where you can spot sites such as Sacre Coeur. The suite’s interior is furnished in the style of Versailles, and has dramatically veined Italian marble in the bathroom."
