You don’t have to be going on your literal honeymoon to feel like you’re honeymooners. Whether you’re newlyweds or rekindling an old flame, few things ignite romance like getting away together.
When you’re traveling with that special someone, connecting with each other is always the best part, no matter where you go. But some destinations do romance a little better than others. And there’s nothing like playing house in dreamy destinations with dreamier digs.
If you’re planning a couple’s trip of any kind, consider booking your stay at one of these destinations designed, decked out, and sometimes even discounted with couples in mind.
