AZULIK Uh May Tulum, Mexico
AZULIK is a sanctuary of relaxation where the jungle meets the sea in Mexico. The villas of AZULIK Tulum create an environment for rest and reconnection. You won't find a television or electric light; the resort reduces the influence technology has on our ability to get in tune with our surroundings.
Jessie recommends the Sea Villa.
Hotel Santa Caterina in Amalfi
The mix of warmth, glamour, and stellar service makes Hotel Santa Caterina stand out resort in Amalfi. Still owned by the family that built the hotel in 1904, it offers a sophisticated and homey retreat. Choose one of the superb suites, each with a sea view bathroom and lovely antiques.
Jessie recommends the Guilietta e Romeo Chalet.
Phulay Bay in Thailand
Huddled on the beaches of the Andaman Sea and near Phi Phi Island, Phulay Bay, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, depicts the junction of nature and culture. Find a 5-star resort in Thailand where you can awake to sunrise yoga on the beach, spend afternoons hiking Krabi's sumptuous Dragon Crest Mountain and unwind over romantic dinners with spectacular ocean views.
Jessie recommends the Reserve Pool Villa with a Sea View.
Golden Crown Levin Iglut in Lapland
Levin Iglut offers incredible glass-enclosed igloos that give honeymooners a luxury experience in the wilderness of Lapland. The views of the mountainous landscape and the polar sky are the ultimate romantic getaway. The unobstructed views of the northern sky from the incline make the resort an ideal place for appreciating the Northern Lights.
Jessie recommends the Suite Igloo.
Calilo Resort in Ios, Greece
Rising from the carved native rock, Calilo is surrounded by 1,000 acres of protected land and ringed by golden sand, lapped by a cerulean sea. In a secluded corner of unspoiled Ios and just a stone's throw Mykonos and Santorini, this 30-suite retreat offers an escape from the crowds. Think sun-drenched solitude surrounded by an aged olive-pricked landscape. Calilo has stolen my heart since it emerged on the scene. If given a chance, this remarkable resort will steal yours too.
Jessie recommends the Afterglow Cave Pond Suite or the Blue & You Suite.
Akalki Hotel in Bacalar, Mexico
I adore this peaceful Mexican retreat; it is perfect for a romantic getaway. You will find eleven rooms with lovely details and refined design.

Time + Tide Miavana in Madagascar
Stroll through the incredible forests and play with the lemurs at Madagascar's stunning, luxury eco-resort, Miavana. The resort is home to 14 luxurious private villas, each boasting elegant island-inspired design, unending ocean views, a private pool, and 24/7 pampering at the hands of your butler. But what truly makes it an out-of-this-world experience are the next-gen adventures: lemur trekking, helicopter sightseeing, and whale watching.
Jessie recommends the One-Bedroom Villa.
Manon Les Suites in Copenhagen
A stay at Manon Les Suites will be a fantastic experience that you'll never forget. Manon offers a slice of Bali smack in the middle of some of Copenhagen's most beautiful sights!

JOALI lives on the picture-perfect Muravandhoo island in the Raa Atoll. One of the broadest and deepest atolls in the world. The atoll is home to a myriad of sea life, ensuring the diving is superb. Expect deep blue waters and immaculate white-sand beaches fringed by gently swaying coconut palms.
Jessie recommends the Luxury Water Villa with Pool.
Royal Mansour in Marrakech
The Royal Mansour is of the few hotels in the world that defy perfection. Mere steps away from the famous Jemaa El Fna square pulse the heart of the Marrakesh Palace. The hotel offers travelers a unique concept of a medina within a medina. There are five separate riads in the hotel, and each area allows honeymooners to go on a sensory journey. It's time to step into the mysterious and magnificent history of one of the most charming hotels in the world.
Jessie recommends the Premier Riad.
Keemala Resort in Phuket
Far from the beach crowds, lying in the rainforest's heart, Keemala is an excellent choice for nature-loving couples. Treehouses, tents, and rooms make the most of their lush environment with airy interiors, outdoor showers, and plunge pools. For a truly unique experience, choose one of Keemala's treehouses which nestle on the hillside, with private pools, monsoon showers, and canopy beds. The hotel focuses on wellness, meditation sessions, detoxifying spa treatments, and complimentary jungle treks.
Jessie recommends the Bird's Nest Pool Villas.

Situated on a grand mountain ridge, Kura is a small luxury boutique hotel on the island's southern coast.

Amanoi in Vietnam
Commanding a magnificent stretch of Vietnam's coastline within the flourishing embrace of Nui Chua National Park and UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Amanoi is an absolute paradise overlooking Vinh Hy Bay.
