Where do you want to go for the ultimate honeymoon? You’ll want somewhere romantic, somewhere with great weather, somewhere with fun things to do, and somewhere with some of the best hotels, you’ll be able to find. When you add that all up, Orlando is the place that comes to mind. Here are some of the best hotels in Orlando you can choose for your honeymoon.
- Westgate Lakes
Lounge around the many onsite pools.
Westgate Lakes Resort Orlando is a stunning hotel complex that’s just a mile and a half from Sea World Orland, a four-minute drive from Universal Resort, and seven minutes from the Disney World parks. Location, therefore, is definitely ticked off the list. As for a romantic honeymoon, that’s certainly achievable here – the pools are perfect for lounging around (or splashing about in – the choice is yours thanks to the lazy river, 41,000-gallon wave pool, water slides, and quieter pools, too) and the rooms are stylish and modern, with jetted tubs. Other facilities include a great onsite restaurant ideal for romantic meals for two, a fitness suite, and a golf course.
- Waldorf Astoria
A luxurious way to spend your honeymoon.
If you want something luxurious and memorable, the Waldorf Astoria Orlando could be the ideal match for your honeymoon. Of course, it’s close to Disney World, which is a great place to get your marriage off to a magical start, and you’ll want to spend plenty of time in the parks – when you pick a hotel that’s close by, that’s easier than ever. On top of this, the Waldorf Astoria offers an 18-hole golf course and spa facilities, so relaxation time is easy too. If you want to upgrade your experience, why not book one of the many suites? Some have more than one balcony and kitchenette.
- The Alfond Inn
Free champagne and cake for honeymooners.
Let the staff at the Alfond Inn know you’re there on your honeymoon, and you’ll be gifted a bottle of champagne and a cute cake in your room on arrival. The fact that this hotel is a boutique, unique place to stay makes it even more special and ensures that you’ll certainly never forget your honeymoon. Located in upscale Winter Park, there is art in every communal space and even an art tour once a week. The restaurant – Hamilton’s Kitchen – has won awards for its food, and it’s close to every attraction you might want to visit.
- Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
Located just outside the Magic Kingdom.
When it comes to naming things right, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is one that was named very well indeed – it is definitely grand, making it a wonderful place to spend your honeymoon. When you stay here, you can expect the most luxurious of facilities and décor, giving you a traditional feel with up-to-date touches. There are two stunning pools, as well as a spa (Senses Spa) and Mizner’s Lounge, where you can hear live jazz music. If you want a fairy tale hotel for a fairy tale vacation, Disney’s Grand Floridian is your answer.
- Grand Bohemian Hotel Orlando
Book a couples massage in the onsite spa.
Honeymoons should be all about relaxation, fun, and being alone together after the stress and hectic months leading up to the wedding itself. So why not book a room at the Grand Bohemian Hotel Orlando to enjoy your honeymoon in? It makes sense; this hotel is beautiful and opulent – it’s a four-diamond resort – and it’s close to Orlando’s most important attractions. That includes Disney, of course, but if you want to do other things, such as check out International Drive or see Universal Studios, plus much more, this is a great base to pick. The hotel has a rooftop pool and unique rooms, plus it’s home to plenty of amazing artwork. You can have a couples massage in the onsite spa and a cocktail made especially for you.
- Dr Phillips House
Try something unique and boutique at Dr Phillips House.
Honeymoons are meant to be special, so it makes sense to find a special place to stay when you choose to visit Orlando to celebrate yours. Dr Phillips House, close to Orlando’s Amway Center, is certainly unique. It’s a guesthouse rather than a standard hotel, and since there are only six suites available, you’ll be part of a very select group of people – that’s something special to think about. The great thing about this is that you’ll get one-to-one personal service at Dr Phillips House, which is a 19th-century building that also happens to be a historic landmark. Plus, although you’re located in a nice, quiet part of Orlando, you’re still just 20 minutes from the magic of the theme parks.
- Caribe Royale Orlando
The Caribe Royal has something for everyone.
The Caribe Royale Orlando is an ideal place for couples to spend their honeymoon, no matter whether you’re interested in the Disney theme parks, the nightlife, or just enjoying one another’s company. Here you can do all of that to your heart’s content. The Caribe Royale Orlando offers plenty for adults to enjoy, including a wonderful 24-hour café that offers up snacks and hot and cold beverages whenever you want them. Fancy a midnight snack? It’s yours. If you want to try something different from the standard Orlando attractions, why not take the one-and-a-half-mile walking trail around the hotel’s grounds (or take a bike instead), or perhaps active couples might like to play tennis or join in with a game of basketball. When you’re tired out, book an appointment in the onsite day spay, lounge around the pool, and enjoy a great meal in the hotel’s restaurants.
- Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort
Stay in the wilderness and appreciate nature.
There are lots of hotels in Orlando. There are lots of hotels that cater perfectly well to honeymooners. However, there are very few hotels that offer couples the chance to stay in their very own private log cabin in the middle of nowhere, but that’s just what Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort does. So if you want to get away from it all but still want easy access to the Disney parks and other Orlando attractions, this is the place to go. The hotel is set in a huge (750-acre) forest of pine and cypress trees, and you’re sure to come across plenty of birdlife and wildlife as you wander – or even as you look out of your cabin’s windows. Among the many different species, you’ll find there are deer, ducks, and rabbits. To make things even easier for you, these self-catering cabins have a grocery delivery service, so you don’t have to step foot in a supermarket during your entire stay.
- The Ritz-Carlton Orlando
A hotel that has everything you need for your ideal honeymoon.
When you see the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, you can’t help but think of the grand Italian palazzos, full of style and grace and elegance and just right for a honeymoon never to be forgotten. Set in 500 acres, this luxury full-service resort is a beautiful place to unwind and relax after your wedding and a magnificent choice when it comes to starting your married life off in just the right way. Here you can opt for a luxury suite if you want to, but there are standard rooms too (although to call them standard would be doing them a disservice). Plus, there is a spa, three pools, a Greg Norman signature 18-hole golf course, and a number of different dining options. In other words, this is all you need.
- Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando
Enjoy your own private beach and lagoon at the Royal Pacific.
The Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando is a beautiful place to stay. It is a Polynesian-inspired hotel that gives guests a true feeling of staying on their own private island – and for honeymooners, it can’t get better than that, especially when you add in the fact that you are moments away from Universal Resort and SeaWorld, and just a few minutes by car or bus to Disney World. There are a number of different restaurants to try out at the Royal Pacific Resort, and they are all themed, including an island-themed eatery. The hotel even has its own lagoon and white sand beach.
