Earlier this year I was lucky enough to be a speaker at the Love Colombia conference in Cartagena, Colombia. Though this Central American city had long been high on my must-visit list, I had never made it there before. After spending five days exploring Cartagena’s romantic hotels and meeting with the city’s top tourism and event pros, I

Talking Bora Bora Honeymoons on Style Me Pretty

When it comes to honeymoons, one place towers above the rest: Bora Bora. It’s one of our favorite places, for sure; every time we fly into Bora Bora Airport and get that first glimpse of the stunning blue-green waters, our hearts melt. Add in the fact that the airport sits on an island and is only accessible by boat…well, you

A Secret Honeymoon Villa in Guatemala

Most visitors to Guatemala head straight to the historic capital Antigua and leave it at that, but you’re missing out if you don’t head into the highlands. Lake Atitlan is the deepest lake in Central America; think Lake Tahoe only surrounded by rural villages and the Sierra Madres instead of the Rockies. It’s a three-hour drive from Guatemala City by

Is This The Sexiest Honeymoon Resort in Seychelles?

We don’t like to make blanket statements, and there are a lot of amazing resorts in the Indian Ocean. But for honeymoons, it’s hard to beat this one. First of all, there’s the setting. MAIA Luxury Resort & Spa sits on its own peninsula in a marine preserve, so the views are second to none.   The digs

If you’re a beach-lover, you should know about Antigua; the island claims to have 365 (“one for every day of the year”). Carlisle Bay sits one a beautiful one, small and tucked inside a deep cove that’s bookended by bluffs. The limited access means you don’t encounter people from other hotels — the vibe is private and serene, which

Sexy Jungle Hideout in Belize

We love Belize as an off-the-beaten path honeymoon spot. It’s close (just below Mexico) and easy to get to, with plentiful connections from the U.S. The offshore islands like Ambergris Caye and Robert’s Caye are reknowned for snorkeling and diving, but if you stick to the coast you miss half of the country’s beauty. That’s why we suggest combining beach time

The latest rage in travel is private homes-turned-hotels. No, not Airbnb — we’ll save that debate for another post. This a whole other caliber: fully-vetted exquisite private homes that give you the run of the place along with top-notch hotel style services. One of the best is Howie’s HomeStay, in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Our pal Laura Grier of Beautiful Day Photography
