“Off the Beaten Path” locations continued. These are luxury resorts, that most honeymoon couples have never heard of. We can build the perfect honeymoon around any one of these resorts. Contact us at 401-397-5515.

Andronis Luxury Suites, Santorini

Staying here is like living in your own private abode, albeit one with a typical-for-the-Cyclades design (whitewashed; cave-like), beds on raised platforms, and plunge pools that extend right to the cliff's edge. Everything is designed to put those all-blue Aegean views on full display, and to pamper you in all the right ways, from poolside cocktail service to strawberries and champagne at breakfast to private wine tastings at sunset.

Il San Pietro di Positano, Italy

This glam Amalfi Coast stay is a glitterati favorite thanks to its location—and jaw-dropping beauty—on a rock face above the Bay of Positano. The rooms feature ceramic tiling and Mediterranean colors and antiques, and tumble down the promontory, each with private terraces that look out onto the ocean. At the Michelin-starred restaurant Zass, you can dig into lobster tagliatelle or sea bass with black truffle or go for casual bites like spaghetti with squash or grilled mozzarella at the beachside Carlino.

Cap Rocat, Mallorca, Spain

When this former citadel overlooking Spain's Bay of Palma was transformed into a sleek retreat in 2010, it changed everything people knew about Mallorca. Now, it’s one of the island’s most popular and romantic sleeps, where high-walled sandstone passages lead to 22 cozy suites featuring antique beds, Moroccan rugs, and terraces with daybeds, where breakfast is delivered in hampers each morning. Along with a stunning infinity pool that looks out over the Mediterranean, a flight of stone steps leads to the sea below for chillier swims or snorkeling.

Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar, Oman

When Anantara’s first hotel in Oman, built on the edge of the rocky Saiq Plateau, opened, it became the highest five-star hotel in the Middle East—and, instantaneously, one of the best Cliffside hotels in the world. Of the 115 accommodations, the Cliff Pool Villas feature private infinity pools that jut out precariously over the mountain rim, 6,500 feet above sea level. There’s a public infinity pool for everyone else; when not taking a dip or chowing down on Omani and international cuisine at own of the resort's six restaurants, head to the spa for decadent treatments, to the kitchen for a cooking class, or to the Hajar mountain range for a heart-pumping climb.
