Hey honeymooners, let’s get real for a second. We all know that when it comes to choosing the right destination for you and your new honey, you want it to be unlike anyone else’s trip. At the end of the day, you want that Instagram picture or Facebook album to make everyone go, “Dang, I want that honeymoon.”
From one traveler to another, I wanted to give you the inside-scoop on a new resort in the Caribbean that we toured a few months ago. It was unanimous among all of us BeachMasters that Now Onyx had something going on (like Chick-fil-A’s “Chick-fil-A” sauce or the Emma Stone + Ryan Gosling connection).
It just works.
From the pool lounging to the swim-out suites, here’s the low-down on why you should honeymoon at Now Onyx.
X Reasons Why You Should Honeymoon At Now Onyx
1. Bombin’ beach
Now Onyx is all about the lounging experience, so if you’re a true beach-lover, please travel to Punta Cana. You’ll find gorgeous soft, golden sand along some of the clearest water. It has is optimal weather for traveling year-round. The Caribbean is temperate year-round which means no matter your wedding date, you will be satisfied traveling here. According to our wedding friends at TheKnot, the best months in particular to travel to the Caribbean are December to May.
2. Sexy swim out suites
For your honeymoon, you want an incredible room. This is the best part about Now Onyx because ALL ground floor suites are swim out offering direct access to a pool right from the terrace. Do you know what this means? This means your own private access to a pool anytime you want and you only have to walk maybe 10 steps out your door. Usually this is a luxury to upgraded rooms, but Now Onyx is all about optimal lounging experience for all its guests.
3. Killer lounging
This resort will make your jaw drop with how many lounging options there are. Recline under one of the private cabanas lining the entire resort, take your pick on a modern pool bench – not just next to the pool – but elevated above the pool, or chill in your swim-out pool just outside your door.
Now Onyx knows how to make their guests relax.
4. Modern furnishings
I loved the rooms at Now Onyx. Yes, they’re great for families, but just because a resort is “family friendly” doesn’t mean it won’t be “honeymoon friendly”. Everything from the bathrooms to the outdoor furniture felt modern and new, which in my opinion makes you feel more legit while on your honeymoon. Plus there is so much privacy, it’ll be easy to avoid any “youthful” noise if you’re trying to chill.
5. Boredom doesn’t exist here
Don’t believe us? Check out this virtual tour of the resort and you’ll see what we mean:
For me and my husband, all we needed on our honeymoon was some sun, fruity drinks, and the beach and we were content. But I have so many friends that can’t handle the same routine every day.
The answer? Now Onyx. Mix up your day at the pool with a little putt-putt (that hovers over the pool — it’s pretty sweet). Zipline over the jungle, go on a cave expedition, discover a hidden cenote or island on excursions nearby*. When the sun goes down, enjoy a big screen movie on the beach and live nightly entertainment at the open air theater.
Other indoor/outdoor activities: • 2 tennis courts • Paddle court • Beach volleyball • Pool tables • Aerobics & water aerobics • Dance classes • Spanish classes • Non-motorized water sports • Snorkeling • Introductory scuba diving lesson in the pool • Sailing • Scuba diving* • Kayaks • Golf nearby* • Tennis clinics* • Fishing* • Helicopter for excursion*

For your honeymoon, wedding anniversary or when you just want to have a very special dinner with your sweetheart, ask about the romantic, private candlelight dinner on the beach for two. This special dinner is served only by advance reservation through your concierge. *Additional costs apply.
There are also 10 different restaurants and 10 bars at Now Onyx plus 20 additional dining and bar options at Breathless Punta Cana next door. So you can experience diverse atmosphere every night if you want to!
