Maybe you're planning a honeymoon (congratulations!). Maybe you have an
important anniversary celebration coming up. Or perhaps it's just time for you
and your loved one to rekindle the fires with a little passion and romance.
Whatever the reason to celebrate your love, you're bound to be intrigued by the
romantic possibilities of these "Top 10 Honeymoon Spots."
Seclusion can be the ultimate luxury for honeymooners and
romantics, so you'll want to check into the Sand Dollar Cottage, located away
from the resort's other rooms and tucked into a grove of swaying Casuarina
pines just steps from the beach. An outdoor shower, ever-present breezes, and a
cool and inviting interior with a king bed make this The Meridian Club's most
popular rental, so be sure to book well in advance. If you like, the resort
offers a 5-night "Romance Package" that includes a champagne welcome,
a castaway picnic to a remote location, and a private dinner under the stars.

Experience." They deliver a selection of natural spa products and oils so

several romantic experiences during your stay, including a seaside vow renewal,
a sunset cruise, or a candelight dinner on the beach. Member-exclusive
