The stress of wedding planning is over, the magical day has come and gone, your bags are packed for the honeymoon – make it a vacation to Miami. This magical, romantic and fun city is the perfect way to start a life together.
Plan your trip to be just right for the two of you; whether that means setting down your towel on the beach and only moving for another daiquiri, strolling hand-in-hand through historic sites like the oldest building in the Western hemisphere, getting couples massages, dining in dim lit restaurants or going on adventurous day trips, you can do it all in Miami. Why settle for just a beach trip, just a culinary vacation or simply staying in peace and quiet away from it all, when you can do all of that and more in Miami?
Where To Stay On Your Honeymoon
Do you imagine waking up with a view of the ocean, in a modern chic room, a tropical oasis, a villa-style home or designer boutique hotel? Start and end your day the right way on your honeymoon by picking the right place to stay.
Miami’s many accommodation options cater to couples of all kinds. Choose a rustic retreat or a posh resort hotel and take advantage of the amenities that each unique hotel offers.
Miami Beach is certainly a popular choice for the honeymooner. Spend your days on the beach, sure to be just a short walk from your hotel, charter a private yacht for the day or book a fishing boat for a little more action. Some of Miami’s best and most romantic restaurants are in hotels on Miami Beach. Popular nightlife options from clubs to live music venues line the streets. If you want a honeymoon where you can balance the relaxation of spa amenities and beach days with luxury restaurants, dive bars or glitzy nightclubs, Miami Beach is the right place for you.
Don’t rule out mainland hotels from your potential honeymoon spots. For a more laidback, local vibe, check out some of the other popular areas. Discover the gems of each neighborhood from tiny Latin-cuisine restaurants and French bistros to dive bars and historic sites. Look into the quiet island of Key Biscayne, the bohemian vibe of Coconut Grove, the old-time charm of Coral Gables and the urban Downtown Miami.
Consider a resort hotel where the cuisine, service and amenities will all be unparalleled and you won’t have to worry about making many plans; you can spend all of your time in the beautiful rooms, ordering room service, or swimming and then rely on the concierge for the rest of your recommendations.
Lately, honeymoons that are a bit more off the beaten path have become very trendy. Miami is the perfect destination for a blend of the traditional amenities of luxury hotels and the hipper feel of a more rustic honeymoon. You can split your time between a high-end hotel and a sailboat exploring Biscayne National Park.
For a homey-feel check out Miami’s many boutique hotel options. Boutique hotels are known for stellar and personalized service and well-designed details.
The Couple That Spas Together…
Don’t skip the spa while you’re in Miami for your honeymoon. There’s no better way to relax and unwind after months of planning your wedding and the adrenaline rush of that big day. If hitting the spa hard is a priority for your trip, book your accommodations based on the in-house spa amenities, most of Miami’s best spas are inside hotels where all you’ll have to do is slip into the elevator and then right into a robe.
Relax together and look for couples treatments like candlelit aromatherapy massages, body-oil therapies, scented jet baths, hammams and more.
Some spas have honeymooner specials, so don’t forget to ask if there’s anything they recommend or if there’s a discounted rate for couples celebrating their honeymoon. Visit during Miami’s Spa Months, July and August, for treatments at top spas around the city for the reduced rate of $99. Miami’s premiere spas select some of their best spa menu items and offer them at this discounted rate throughout these two months.
Dine at a candlelit table, feast on dishes that are tastier than you can imagine and enjoy the romantic ambiance of Miami’s restaurants. Nothing is sexier than the breeze in your hair, a good glass of wine or your favorite cocktail and plate after plate of delicious food. Enjoy your honeymoon and enjoy the food in Miami where the fish is fresh, the vegetables grown nearby and the menus are crafted by celebrity chefs and international cuisine experts. Whether you’re looking for authentic ethnic food experience, a meal of haute cuisine or a regional favorite you’ll find it in Miami’s eclectic restaurants.
Local foodies look forward to Miami Spice each year, a celebration from August 1- September 31 of Miami’s best flavors, where the city’s best restaurants offer reduced price menus giving you a taste of their best dishes at a fraction of the regular price.
