Planning A Honeymoon? Here Are CNN’s Top Five Hotel Recommendations

Story from: 2oceansvibe.com

Honeymoons – better than the wedding, right?

Honestly I have no idea, and am planning on not knowing for a very long time, but if you’re in the process of making those wedding-bell dreams a reality, you have probably definitely thought about where you will be jetting off to as soon as the reception is over.

But what’s your poison? An adventure in a jungle, or being treated like royalty? Perhaps you want to be isolated on an island surrounded by azure oceans, or prefer a romantic safari getaway.

Whatever it is, CNN has your back, and located some of the world’s best, most romantic, honeymoon hotels.

Here are our top five:

Royal Mansour (Marrakech)

Commissioned by King Mohammed VI, the Royal Mansour is an oasis of 53 elegant private residences, or riads, quiet courtyards and intimate restaurants just five minutes from the Jemaa el-Fnaa.

The riads are as extravagant as they come, strewn with suede and silk carpets, velvet brocade sofas and Baccarat crystal – guests will feel as if they’re living in their own private palace.
Riads aside, honeymooners will love the hotel’s sumptuous private spa suites, each decked out with their own hammam, plunge pool and terrace.

Conrad Bora Bora Nui (Bora Bora)

Though you’d be hard-pressed to find a resort that’s not honeymoon-worthy in Bora Bora, this brand-new resort – opened officially on April 1 – is one of the most impressive the destination has to offer.
For starters, it’s the only resort in Bora Bora that has two-story overwater bungalows, offering extra space (over 3,000 square feet) and added privacy.

There’s also a hilltop spa, a white-sand beach, an infinity pool with a swim-up bar and a sunset lounge with a glass floor that offers a glimpse into the coral reefs below.

Soneva Kiri (Koh Kood, Thailand)

Wedged between the jungle and the ocean on the lush, under-the-radar island of Koh Kood, Soneva Kiri makes for the perfect romantic escape.

It has just 36 thatched villas, each with its own private infinity pool, sundeck and a lavish indoor-outdoor bathroom.

But the resort’s pièce de résistance is its jungle-enshrouded Cinema Paradiso, an open-air movie theatre set above a lagoon (date night will never be the same again).

Shangri-La Hotel, Paris (Paris)

There are countless honeymoon-worthy hotels in the city of love, but the Shangri-La might be the most romantic of them all.

Behind its picturesque wedding-cake facade, you’ll find impossibly lush landscaped gardens, two Michelin-starred restaurants and 101 opulent, antique-filled rooms.

But what sets the Shangri-La apart from the others? Its unparalleled views of the Eiffel Tower directly across the river – it’s so close, it feels like you can reach out and touch it from your own balcony.

Four Seasons Resort Serengeti (Tanzania)

When it comes to romance, the Four Seasons seems to get it right every time — even in the middle of the wilderness.

Its magnificent Serengeti property offers a vast menu of couples’ offerings, from floating sunset dinners atop the desert-facing pool to burudika spa treatments using local plants and healing minerals.

Its 77 rooms are luxurious yet blend seamlessly into the environment with their thatched-grass roofs and neutral, earthy colour palettes.

All have open-air sundecks and several even offer private infinity-edge pools that face directly out onto the watering hole.

Exquisite, aren’t they? I can tell you I had a difficult time choosing five out of CNN’s selection of 25, so if you’re still searching for just the perfect place, whether it’s because of destination or attractions, pop over here and make your pick.

Otherwise, a simple Airbnb search could be just as effective, especially budget wise.
