Your honeymoon is supposed to be one of the best vacations of your life. It is an opportunity to get away with your new husband or wife and experience the early days of married life.
For their honeymoon, many people will choose one of the most luxurious holidays that they have ever wanted to go on. After all, if you can’t go on your dream vacation for your honeymoon, when can you?
While many people will jet off to Europe, the Maldives, or Bali, there really is no need to do this for your honeymoon.
If you want luxury and natural beauty, there are plenty of places that you can visit closer to home in the USA.
One of the biggest blessings of living in the USA is that this country is vast and wide, with plenty of different areas to explore.
With 50 different States at your disposal, there is a long list of super romantic honeymoon resorts for you to consider for your honeymoon.
In this guide, we’re looking at 10 of the most luxurious and romantic resorts for your honeymoon in the USA. So, if you want to find out more, keep on reading!
1. Kennicott Glacier Lodge, Alaska
Straight out of the park, let’s kick this off with a honeymoon destination that is a little off the beaten track.
Many people dream of visiting Antarctica in their lifetime, but if it is snow, ice, glaciers, and solitude that you crave, you should definitely consider a trip to Alaska.
Of all the different resorts in Alaska, one of our ultimate favorites is the Kennicott Glacier Lodge.
This lodge is located in the USA’s largest national park – Wrangell-St Elias National Park -, and it is surrounded by immense natural beauty.
Its location in the National Park allows this resort to be the perfect balance of luxury, relaxation, and adventure.
If you can’t book an all-inclusive package on your honeymoon, when can you?
This hotel offers two different all-inclusive packages including the Kennicott Explorer Package and the Wrangell-St Elias Adventure package. Both of these offer amazing opportunities to explore this stunning National Park.
While you will need to find your own transportation to the lodge – either by plane or by car -, once you reach the lodge everything you need will be included in the cost.
Transportation to/from the airport will be provided, as well as transportation for any off-site excursions.
All the activities that the lodge offers will also be included in the cost – such as mountain biking, alpine hiking, ice climbing, glacier hiking, and lots more.
No matter whether you want to admire the natural beauty of this National Park from the comfort of the lodge, or you want to throw yourself into the adventure of the trip, it is clear this is a great honeymoon destination.
It is a little pricey, but it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that we’re sure you’ll adore!
2. The Lodge On Little St Simons Island, Georgia
If you love the idea of honeymooning among insane natural beauty but want something a little warmer than Alaska, you should definitely consider the Lodge on Little St Simon’s Island.
This destination offers breathtaking views and close access to nature, but its location in Georgia makes it a lot warmer.
The Lodge on Little St Simon’s Island is perfect for anybody who wants to be immersed by nature as soon as they step out of their front door, but don’t want to give up luxury.
The lodge itself is utterly breathtaking with traditional features that will make you feel like you’re living in a fairytale. And right outside your front door, there are stunning views that you will be able to spend all day looking at.
You have a couple of different options when it comes to the Lodge on Little St Simons Island. You can simply rent a room in the lodge, push the boat out a little and rent a cottage with views of the Marshlands, or rent the entire lodge.
While the latter option might be overkill if you are just honeymooning here, it is a great option if you want a destination wedding.
There are tons of different excursions available from this resort including hiking, fishing, beach adventures, and more.
The lodge also offers all-inclusive service to its guests, where everything except alcoholic beverages and tips are included – cool, right?
If you want to honeymoon in a lodge, but want a warmer location, this is likely a good option for you!
3. Dunton Hot Springs, Colorado
Alternatively, if all you want from your honeymoon is a luxurious destination, then Dunton Hot Springs in Colorado is an excellent resort for you!
Dunton Hot Springs is one of the best all-inclusive resorts in the USA, and you are guaranteed to feel pampered during your stay.
Here, you can rent out log cabins during your trip, spend days at the resort’s very own spa, and relax in the natural hot springs that are on the resort’s land.
If you are somebody who mainly wants to relax, but wouldn’t mind exploring a little, then there are lots of stunning hiking trails around the resort.
All these trails differ in terms of difficulty, so you will always be able to find a hiking trail that suits exactly what you are looking for.
Undoubtedly, the most noteworthy feature of this hotel is its all-inclusive service.
As you will see in this guide, many hotels will offer all-inclusive service that isn’t actually all-inclusive (often leaving you to pay for your own alcohol and other luxuries).
However, Dunton Hot Springs resort is a fully all-inclusive resort with all meals, beverages (including alcohol), service fees, and taxes included in the cost.
If you really want to treat yourself for your honeymoon, we would definitely recommend considering a trip to Dunton Hot Springs!
4. Rush Creek Lodge And Spa At Yosemite, California
Yosemite is easily one of the most beautiful National Parks in the USA, and Rush Creek Lodge and Spa is the perfect location if you want to spend your honeymoon in Yosemite.
There is a certain element of luxury missing from this vacation destination, and that is because they do not offer all-inclusive service.
The most luxurious package here will allow you a king-size room, daily breakfast, trail lunch, a complimentary beverage, and 2–3 dinners during your stay.
While all your food and drinks may not be included, you will get access to all the evening activities that the resort offers.
Let’s be honest, if you are looking for a honeymoon getaway at Yosemite, it is highly unlikely that all-inclusive resorts are what you’re after. Instead, you want to be immersed in the beauty of this National Park.
That is exactly what you get at Rush Creek Lodge and Spa, with Yosemite literally in touching distance.
Of course, if you want to treat yourself during your trip, you could easily pop into the spa that exists on-site. There really is so much for you to do at this stunning resort!
5. Bungalows Key Largo, Florida
A popular honeymoon destination for those outside of the USA is Florida, so it is definitely one that you should consider for your special trip.
If you have previously visited Florida, then you may be looking for something extra special for your honeymoon.
For that, we would recommend Bungalows Key Largo. This adults-only all-inclusive resort is perfect for anyone looking to relax in the warm weather and stunning beauty of Florida.
The resort itself is located inside a Botanical garden right on the seafront, so as soon as you step out of your room, you will be totally surrounded by nature.
This hotel is designed for one thing – relaxation – so you won’t find extreme water sports or hiking activities here. But you will find outdoor showers, giant soaking tubs, yoga, beaches, and lots more.
This is one of the best resorts to choose from if you want an all-inclusive honeymoon as everything is included in the price that you pay for the package.
So, if you want to forget about money for a while, and instead enjoy nature, peace, and quiet, this is the perfect destination for you.
6. Travaasa Hana, Maui, Hawaii
Another classic honeymoon destination for those living outside the USA is Hawaii. If you live in the USA, then you can access this luxury place without even having to leave the country that you live in.
Travaasa Hana, or Hana Maui as it is sometimes called, is a luxury resort located on the beautiful island of Maui.
For many years, this resort has been viewed as the most luxurious in Maui, and it is also sometimes called the most luxurious resort in Hawaii too.
For those celebrating their honeymoon, this venue is the perfect destination. On your honeymoon, you likely want a certain level of privacy, and that is exactly what this secluded island resort offers.

7. Twin Farms, Vermont
Vermont may not be the first State that comes to mind when you consider your honeymoon, but one of the best venues for your honeymoon in the USA is actually in this State. That venue is Twin Farms.
As the name of this resort suggests, it is a countryside location, and this makes it perfect for any nature lovers among us.
What makes this venue so special is that it is actually Vermont’s only luxury resort, and its all-inclusive service guarantees that you will feel pampered throughout your entire stay.
Set among rolling vineyards and hillsides, Twin Farms truly is a countryside resort. We love this resort because it allows you to be among nature without needing to visit a National Park, which would typically be pretty busy.
You will be hard-pressed to find a venue that is quite as romantic as this one, and the food that is offered at this venue is on another level. It really is a hidden gem when it comes to honeymooning in the USA.
8. Grand Hotel, Michigan

This venue is pretty different from the others that we looked at. But for anyone who is a big fan of classic elegance, this is the perfect honeymoon destination!
9. Red Mountain Resort, Utah
Just like Vermont, Utah is likely one of the last States that you will think of when it comes to your honeymoon destination. However, there are actually quite a few beautiful resorts to choose from there, including Red Mountain Resort.
This is the perfect destination for any fitness fanatics that don’t want to give up their regular exercise just because they are on their honeymoon.
The location of this venue means that there are tons of different types of exercise that you can do. All while enjoying the peaceful setting of this stunning venue.
Red Mountain Resort is definitely a venue with a health and well-being focus, so you do need to consider if this is something that you want to experience on your honeymoon.
However, if health and fitness are your life, and something that you really enjoy, then we doubt you’ll be able to find a venue that suits your wants and needs better than Red Mountain Resort, Utah.
10. Vermejo, New Mexico
Finally, let’s wrap this up with one of New Mexico’s best honeymoon destinations – Vermejo resort. This resort is absolutely huge with more than 550,000 acres of land, and a huge array of wildlife living on the grounds of the resort.
One of the best things about this resort is that there are multiple different buildings that you can choose from when it comes to where to stay.
There is the Casa Grande which is a mansion containing just 7 rooms, and the fishing lodge which contains 8 rooms.
There is also the newly built Turner house which contains 10 rooms. So there are plenty of options to choose between, and all of them are fairly private.
From whatever room you choose, you will get stunning views of the mountains surrounding the resort and the vast amount of land that it covers.
You will also be able to take part in a variety of outdoor activities, including fishing, horseback riding, and wildlife tours.
