Leave the kids at home and book a stay at one of these dreamy getaways.
Geejam Hotel, Port Antonio, Jamaica
Situated in the tiny town of Port Antonio, Geejam Hotel has the laid-back Jamaican vibes you crave, without all the crowds. Hide out in your private cabin or villa or in a secret spot among the dense trees, or hop over to the resort’s private white sand beach for a sun-kissed day with your partner. You might even spot some A-list celebrities—Rihanna, Tom Cruise, and Alicia Keys have all checked in before. Check out these other 15 go-to beach vacations of the rich and famous.
Secrets Royal Beach, Papagayo, Costa Rica
At Secrets Royal Beach Papagayo, couples don’t need to worry about kids killing the romance—the adults-only resort is a welcome escape. But don’t confuse “relaxation” with “boring.” Guests are encouraged to take advantage of beachside movie screenings, foam pool parties, and cocktail receptions—not to mention unlimited drinks.
Kempinski Hotel Bahia, Estepona, Spain
Imagine floating with your partner surrounded by a garden of subtropical trees. With a beach, two outdoor pools, and one indoor pool, Kempinski is a water-lover’s dream come true. Splurge on the Junior Suite for a 180-degree view of the Mediterranean Sea without leaving your room. These romantic small-town honeymoon destinations make a perfect couples trip any time.
The Royal Blue, Crete, Greece
At The Royal Blue, enjoy Greece’s largest island without the headache of kids. The resort only allows a handful of families while separating adult-only and family-only spaces, giving you the grown-up time you crave. Stop by the spa for a couples massage or treatment, or book an authentic Mediterranean meal at one of four onsite restaurants.

Anantara Hua Hin Resort, Tambon Hua Hin, Thailand
This isn’t your typical beachside couples resort. It feels like a traditional Thai village, but the Anantara offers all the luxuries you crave on a romantic getaway—especially for wellness-obsessed couples. The resort offers post-detox scrub raw juices, daily yoga sessions in the garden, and kayaking in the Gulf of Siam—or of course, you can always sit back on a spacious terrace overlooking the lagoon.
Excellence Riviera, Cancun, Mexico
This all-inclusive couples resort is the ultimate getaway. With the no-kids-allowed policy at Excellence Riviera, you can feel free to relax under thatched umbrellas, take a dip in winding pools, or drink in stucco restaurants and bars, sans screaming children. With beach- and poolside service, you won’t even need to change out of your swimsuits to enjoy a couple margaritas.
Auberge du Soleil, Napa Valley, California
The middle of wine country is the ultimate spot for an adults-only getaway, and this couples resort doesn’t disappoint. Enjoy sweeping views of the vineyards below before setting up your own tasting tour at local wineries. When you’re not indulging in reds and whites, take a stroll through Auberge du Soleil’s sculpture garden, soak in the outdoor hot tub, or rejuvenate with a spa treatment. Here are more of the most romantic spots in America for a honeymoon (or any couples vacation).
Royal Davui Island Resort, Royal Davui, Fiji
Does anything scream “romance” more than a private island getaway? The only way to Royal Davui is by helicopter or plane, and with just 16 adult-only rooms available at a time, you can guarantee it won’t be overrun. Explore the coral garden (snorkeling equipment, Hobie Cats, kayaks, and paddleboards are all included), take a boat to a tiny sand cay for a private picnic, or enjoy Pacific cuisine made from local ingredients.
qualia, Hamilton Island, Australia
On an island near the Great Barrier Reef sits a tranquil couples resort only open to guests 16 and up. You and your partner can bunker down for some alone time in your own pavilion, which is secluded enough that each room gets a personal golf cart. Some qualia pavilions come with their own private swimming areas, but if you and your partner can peel away from the room, the resort has more infinity pools.
Sunrise Holidays Resort, Hurghada, Egypt
As if this kids-free hotel wasn’t couple-friendly enough, you can upgrade to a romance package that will create an even more unforgettable experience. Enjoy daily sparkling wine, a once-per-stay candlelight dinner, and in-room breakfast every morning. Of course, even without the upgrade, you’re free to lie on the Sunrise Holidays Resort private beach, scuba dive in the Red Sea, or watch a daily live music performance with a cocktail in hand.
