The Most Romantic Honeymoon Destinations in the World

Ready, get set, go—let the honeymoon planning officially begin!

We asked our readers and followers to share their ultimate honeymoon spots—over 9,000 of you responded.
One of the best parts of wedding planning has nothing to do with the actual wedding, but with what comes after. Researching and booking your dream honeymoon is about as exciting as it gets. Even though you're looking forward to this vacation, soon-to-be spouses may feel overwhelmed by the many possible destinations. With literally an entire world of options, how's a couple to choose where to travel to? We're about to make that decision easier than ever.

Introducing the results of our Most Romantic Destinations survey. In partnership with the travel and booking site Jetsetter, we asked our readers and followers to reveal their ultimate honeymoon spots in nine categories across the globe—and nearly 9,000 of you responded. What results is a list of incredible vacation spots that are approved by newlyweds and Martha Stewart Weddings fans like you.

Looking for the ideal location in Mexico? How about in South America? Planning to travel across the pond to Europe? What about to the Caribbean or South Pacific? Are you more inclined to visit Asia on your trip, or stay right here in the United States? If so, do you prefer someplace urban, or are you after an island escape? Whatever the case, our list has got you covered with the most romantic honeymoon destination in each region.

Click through for the full run-down and find what speaks to you. Then, be sure to dig a little deeper and see our recommendations for hotels (yep, we've researched those too). Ready, get set, go—let the honeymoon planning officially begin!

Caribbean/Atlantic Island: Turks and Caicos

Shocking blue water, soft white sand, dreamy resorts—no wonder this 40-island archipelago took the top prize for Caribbean and Atlantic island.

Continental U.S.: Napa

Visiting vineyards is just one of the many perks of a minimoon or honeymoon in California's wine country. Also worth putting on your agenda: eating farm-fresh food, visiting geothermal pools, and taking in some live music.

U.S. Island: Maui

With its mix of beaches, adventures, and top-notch food, this beloved Hawaiian island was the ultimate U.S. escape for many of our voters.

Mexico: Riviera Maya

The 86-mile coastline stretching from just south of Cancún down to Tulum is lined with dense viridian jungle, sun-bleached sand, and natural limestone pools. No wonder so many voters chose Riviera Maya as their favorite spot to visit in Mexico.

South America: Rio de Janeiro

There's plenty to keep you busy in Brazil's vibrant seaside city (including its famed Ipanema and Copacabana beaches)—but the best way to get a taste is to eat your way through it, one classic dish at a time. We recommend feijoada, brigadeiros, picanha, bolinhos de bacalhau, moqueca, and caipirinha. 

Europe: The Amalfi Coast

This picturesque region is the go-to spot for Italian glitz and glamour. Plan a honeymoon that's all about living la dolce vita by visiting one of our favorite hotels in the area.

Asian City: Bangkok

Thailand's capital has a vibrant cultural scene, with great shopping, delicious food, and a riverside creative district. Honeymooners will find plenty to keep them occupied in this busy city.

Asian Island: Bali

This super-romantic Indonesian island has a hypnotic mystique that attracted travelers long before Eat Pray Love. Beyond its natural beauty—including rice paddies and stunning mountains—we love its beach clubs, local dishes, and cool hotels.

Australia/South Pacific: Bora Bora

There are so many reasons to step out of that overwater bungalow and dive into the dynamic culture of the Polynesian islands. From savoring the seafood to hiking to its holiest spots, there's more-a more-a to Bora Bora.
