{The List #7: Best Honeymoon Beach Spots}

May 25, 2009

You've stressed. You've planned. You've budgeted. The wedding will soon be over so it's time to take that relaxing beach honeymoon and start your marriage with some romance. We've asked the Pink List Panelists to come up with a list of their Favorite Beach Honeymoon Places. Our gal, Lisa S. did a great job in compiling this list and even added a little celebrity gossip.

Read on....

Bora Bora, Tahiti: For an extra luxurious experience stay at the all-new Intercontinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa or St. Regis Resort where Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban spent their honeymoon(Bora Bora Resort, pictured above). We also like that the Intercontinental Group is running a Get a Free Night Promotion.

Lanai, Hawaii: Lanai is so secluded that the very private Bill Gates snuck off to get married there. There are only two resorts on the island and they are both owned by The Four Seasons Hotel group.

Punta Mita, Mexico: Heavenly white sand beaches that stretch for miles, Haagen Dazs ice cream delivered to you in the infinity pool -- need I say more? Stay at The Four Seasons. And, let's not forget the newly built St. Regis Punta Mita that is situated on 22 acres. We like their Emerging Paradise offer which includes a massage at the Remede spa after you are picked up by a luxury SUV. Since the airport is 50 minutes away, we find this indulgence more a necessity.

Los Cabos, Mexico: Easy getaway with direct flights from several cities on the West Coast. Stay at the One & Only Palmilla where Eli Manning just honeymooned and where Heidi and Spencer from The Hills supposedly got hitched! It's a favorite of Nancy Liu Chin who writes, "it's my favorite place in Mexico where you can sit all night in the lounge, listen to the vocalists sings romantic love songs, and feel like it's your own home instead of a hotel".

Turks and Caicos: Named one of the “Sexiest Beaches” by the Travel Channel. Stay at The Parrot Cay resorts, where Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner said "I do" and where rockers Ashley Simpson and Pete Wentz relaxed. Known for the climate, white sand and warm seas the resort created a honeymoon package with the bride and groom in mind. Inquiry about the their seven nights offer which includes a 60-minute couples massage and candlelit dinner in the COMO Shambhala Cottage.

St. Martin, French West Indies: Exclusive, secluded, complete luxury, elegance, and tranquility. No one will bother you at La Samanna Resort & Spa's new Villas where VIP airport transfers, continental breakfast, twice daily housekeeping, private beach cabana with beach butler service are simply the norm. We hear that Villa guests can also request a 43 ft Italian power boat to tour neighboring island. No wonder Courtney Cox and David Arquette honeymooned there(and they are still a Hollywood couple).

Wakaya Island, Fiji: The Wakaya Resort is situated on Wakaya Island, a private 2,200 acre hideaway that is one of 333 islands that comprise the Fiji group. Wakaya Island is surrounded by a protected coral reef, and the island boasts serene lagoons, majestic cliffs and pristine white sand beaches. And yes, Tori and Dean stayed here! Though paradise it may be, be prepared to shell out $2K per night.

Bali, Indonesia: Made famous by Elisabeth Gilbert's novel Eat, Pray, Love, Bali is a spiritual place where you go to seek discernment, peace, and restoration. We can't think of a better place to honeymoon because it truly is a place where not only love exists but love flourishes.

Bulgari's Bali resort overlooking the Indian Ocean offers an array of luxurious services. However, for those who want to elope, they offer wonderful wedding services! Why not marry and honeymoon?

The Maldives: One of those islands where you just aren't really sure where it is at. Is it in the Europe? Africa? South Pacific? It's actually an island country in the Indian Ocean southwest of Sri Lanka, Blogger: Pink Blossom List - Edit Post "{The List #7: Best Honeymoon Beach Spots}"consisting of 19 atolls made up of more than 2,000 coral islands. It's the best kept secret but no longer a secret thanks for Fergie and Josh Duhamel. Yup, they honeymooned at the One and Only Resort at Reethi Rah.

Costa Rica: It's not known for luxury accommodations but we have a feeling that Tom and Gisele's wedding might just launch Costa Rica into a jungle paradise. Florblanca Resort and Lapa Rios are a few of the smaller boutique hotels that offer paradise with a bit of rustic charm.
