In the southwest corner of St. Lucia, tucked on a crescent of sand between the Pitons, Sugar Beach is the ultimate romantic retreat. The resort sits on the Caribbean, which in the sunlight is impossibly blue and crystal clear. The Pitons, volcanic spires, rise on either side of the beach, and it all sits on an 18th-century sugar plantation. The architecture and design nods to the past, while the amenities are firmly in the modern luxury realm, and even in the busy season it can feel like you’re on a private retreat. Here are five reasons it makes the perfect honeymoon destination:
Planning a wedding is hard work! The last thing you’ll likely want to do afterward is take a vacation that involves lots of planning and logistics. Here, from the moment you arrive you’re taken care of. Rooms come with butler service, so you don’t even have to make your own dinner reservations. Relax at the pool, at the beach, or at the other more secluded beach—there are plenty of options. The floating pads in the sea that you can lounge on without sinking are a nice touch.
Relaxation continues in The Rainforest Spa, where you’ll walk above a stream to treehouse treatment rooms. Treatments draw on natural ingredients, like cocoa and bamboo. Go for the Couples Ultimate Rainforest Experience, a body scrub, cocoa butter massage, and hydrating facial.
You’re not technically far from other guests at Sugar Beach, but rooms feel secluded, thanks to artful design and landscaping. Gwyneth Paltrow has stayed here. So have Matt Damon and Brad Pitt, reportedly. If mega celebrities find it private enough, that’s saying something.
The private plunge pools have spectacular views that make it feel like you have the resort to yourself. Rooms are huge, with luxury amenities, walk-in showers and large bathtubs, robes, slippers, and turn down service. Your honeymoon should feel indulgent, and this definitely does.
There’s a restaurant for every type of mood at Sugar Beach. For something fancy and celebratory, dine on seafood and steaks at Saltwood. Looking for something casual and beachy? Jetty Burgers has you covered. There are smoothies at Boopa’s, Creole food at Bonté on the beach, and Southeast Asian dining at Cane Bar. The biggest problem is finding time to try them all. You could even step up the romance with private dining, or go extra chill and order room service. Just don’t miss the Friday night Beach BBQ, a traditional BBQ with a rum bar and music.
After a few days of post-wedding relaxation, maybe you’re ready to hike, snorkel, or see more of what St. Lucia has to offer. At the resort you can play tennis and beach volleyball, take out kayaks or sailboats, or snorkel near the Pitons.

Crossbody bags, totes, fanny packs—certain purses lend themselves especially well to travel. But on some trips, you might find yourself leaning a little less practical and a little more on-trend. Enter: the bucket bag, which in recent months has been spotted on the arms of celebrities like Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, and Katie Holmes. Sure, it won't lie flat across your body or hold quite as much as a backpack, but it will tie your look together when meandering in and out of shops in Paris or spending an afternoon at a cafe.
Palm Beach has been known as a playground of the rich since industrialist Henry Flagler famously built a railroad and luxury hotels to lure his friends to visit via private railway car. The area still boasts mansions, mega-yachts and major resorts. And the warm climate of the Palm Beaches (the 39 Florida cities, towns and villages that comprise Palm Beach County) make possible a wide variety of outdoor activities.

If it seems like everyone and their mother is trying to use points and miles to go to Japan these days, you’re not wrong. But can you really blame them? Between the people, the history, the culture, the architecture, the nightlife, the shopping, and of course, the food, Japan is an absolute dream of a destination for so many, including honeymooners planning their once-in-a-lifetime vacations.
Window or aisle? It's an age-old frequent flyer debate that's as divisive as walking into a room and declaring that "Toy Story 3" is mediocre (I'll die on this hill) or that Beyonce is, in fact, way better than Taylor Swift (Queen Bey for the win).

With its crystalline waters and sublime beaches, Sardinia’s Costa Smeralda, a 20- kilometer tranche of seaside running along the island’s northeast coast, has been a go-to for the world’s elite for decades. When Prince Karim, Aga Khan IV, who led a consortium that developed the area in the 1960s, first surveyed a then barren landscape he reportedly said, “There is a multitude of fine sandy beaches and no one to walk on them.” But once the posh retreat—sustainably planned and created by top architects of the day—opened for business it drew a rarified crowd, including Greta Garbo, Grace Kelly and Gianni Agnelli, who came to experience the unique beaches, or at least gaze at them with admiration from their nearby yachts.
