Destination — Outta Here
First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes sweeping your new bride off to greener/sandier/five-star-hotel-ier pastures.
Here are four honeymoon destinations we heartily endorse.
1. For the exotic beachgoer
The Nam Hoi
Ha My Beach, Vietnam
A secluded stretch of the Ha My Beach in Vietnam. Open-air garden rooms with plush beds, outdoor rain showers, a well-stocked library and a saltwater pool in front of the beach. On the menu: fresh Vietnamese made from their farm and fish caught off the hotel’s shores.
2. For the king (and queen) of the jungle
The Boulders at Singita
Sabi Sands, South Africa
You’re here to see the big five: lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and Cape buffalo. The Boulders Lodge at Singita is the nicest and newest in the area and close to the Sabi Sands where these beasts live and where there are few restrictions on viewing them.
3. For the close-to-homebody
Belize over Mexico. They speak English. And Francis Ford Coppola’s luxury resort, The Turtle Inn, has five-star huts on a private beach. Scuba, fishing, beaching by day, woodfired pizzas and fresh seafood once the sun goes down.
4. For the city slicker
Over the last 130 years, everyone from Marcel Proust to Keith Richards has graced Les Bains. Reopened recently by filmmaker Jean-Pierre Marois, the chic 39 guest-room boutique has a nightclub, a three-Michelin star chef and stark, modish rooms with Marshall stack stereos.
