Is a honeymoon really only a one-time deal? Mayyybe, but the 100lc team sure loves a good vacay, like when Amanda explored Mexico (here & here), or Jillian’s recent trip to Jamaica (here & here)—all expertly vetted and planned thanks to the pros at Mr & Mrs Smith Hotels. Their honeymoon specialists have spent 10+ years studying up on the best stays around the world. There are over 900 boutique hotels on their radar, so you know your dream destination is out there, and these pics oughta help you find it.

If your ideal getaway involves a secluded beach, tropical cocktails, and hours to sit and do nothing, you’re in luck. Mr & Mrs Smith is offering $200 off your honeymoon booking just for our readers… full details at the end of this post. Let’s take a look at their top three destinations for those who want a one-stop fly-in and lie down on the beach type of honeymoon. Over to you, Mr & Mrs Smith

Six Senses Con Dao, Vietnam

If you’re looking to wander off-the-radar and directly to one of the world’s most beautiful beaches (without the tourists), then this slice of paradise on tropical Con Dao island is it. Tiny and isolated, you can explore the area on guided hikes, bike rides, snorkel or boat excursions. Well, that is if you can manage to pull yourself away from the secluded palm tree-fringed beach, the private pool at your villa or the award-winning spa.

Capella Pedregal, Mexico

Basking on the southernmost tip of the Baja Peninsula, this luxury escape proves you need not travel far to feel completely transported. And, with sparkling ocean views and private plunge pools in every room, four creative restaurants and a spoiling spa (hello, candlelit massage) you’ll likely feel transformed, too. At the very least, relaxed. It’s a difficult place to leave, even for an afternoon, but the hotel’s staff of personal assistants will help arrange dolphin swim excursions, snorkeling trips or zip-line tours for adventure-seekers.

Secret Bay, Dominica

As far as romantic settings go, the five tree-house-style villas and bungalows perched on a tropical hillside overlooking the Caribbean are difficult to top. After all, these intimate, jungle-shrouded suites with private terraces and inviting king-size beds were the runner-up for the Sexiest Bedroom in the World in last year’s Smith Hotel Awards. Not content to simply flop, the concierge will arrange trips with local guides for every outdoor pursuit from horseback riding to remote hiking, deep-sea fishing and sailing excursions, scuba diving or a cruise along the Indian River in a traditional Caribe boat.
