We’re here to tell you that a beach honeymoon is not just a beach honeymoon. It’s the potential for an intimate respite experience that can enrich your relationship before, after, and during your trip.
Not every couple is the same. Not every couple needs or wants the same things. But in a world of endless options, it can difficult to decide what exactly you need. We’ve created four honeymoon types to match four different couple styles. Read more below & take our quiz to decide which couple you are and what type of honeymoon suits your tastes best.
Four Different Honeymoons
1. The Romantics
Sometimes Romantics get a bad rap, dreaming of an “idealized reality” that will never come true. But on a honeymoon at the beach, you can romanticize your life as much as you want. You can be secluded in a tropical landscape, with endless options framed in beautiful aesthetics that make life unreal. If this is for you, we suggest looking into Zoetry Agua Punta Cana, Secrets Akumal Riviera Maya, & Secrets Papagayo Costa Rica for unique aesthetic, romantic perks, & intimate atmosphere.
WHY ZOETRY AGUA? An intimate experience on the shore, private terraces with French doors that open to impressive views (plunge pool options), Spa-like spacious bathrooms, & organic food.
WHY SECRETS AKUMAL? Lounge anywhere on this resort property & feel like a celebrity. It’s wide but quaint with a spectacular beach hosting wild sea turtles and cabanas near the bar.
WHY SECRETS PAPAGAYO? Unique suite options that give you a sweet taste of romantic aloneness.
2. The Beach Babes
Beach Babes are low maintenance. They’re not particular about room views or private pools… they just want the beach. Whether you’re low maintenance by choice or by a limited budget, you don’t have to sacrifice quality to get to the beach. Amazing food, space to lounge in the sand, great service, and beach fun is within your reach. We highly suggest these trusted resorts: Ocean Maya Royale, Couples Tower Isle, Bavaro Princess All Suites.
WHY OCEAN MAYA ROYALE? Right by the beach, is this tropical and intimate resort with great places to lounge all day. Many fun activities are within reach, both on and off resort property.
WHY COUPLES TOWER ISLE? Amazingly affordable for a trip to Jamaica! The spas are unbeatable & this resort offers a couple excursions included in most packages! Tranquil, fun, and doesn’t break the bank.
WHY BAVARO PRINCESS? It’s a dream with available intimate locations and a perfect beach for lounging, reading, napping, sipping on drinks, laughing, and just having a great time.
3. The Adventurers
Calling all adventurers and explorers who want to embrace everything & anything. You, who see no need to sit still and want to experience life to the fullest. For you, there are resorts that have endless excursions and cultural thrills to go right along with the luxury of an All Inclusive.
You can book excursions in two ways: get in touch with your BeachMaster prior to your trip, or you can meet with an Apple Vacations Representative, on destination.
Most excursions are an added cost. But usually, non-motorized sports are included. Resorts like Dreams Las Mareas, Breathless Cabos San Lucas, & Couples Swept Away are in prime locations, close to exotic excursions.
