A great honeymoon often starts with a great hotel. You want a place that will make you feel welcome, relaxed and at home. Throwing in a whole lot of romance too is just the right recipe for a happy honeymoon. Here are three can’t miss hotels in three very sexy locations.

Vain Hotel in Buenos Aires, Argentina

I may be a bit partial to this place because my husband and I spent the first night of our own honeymoon here. This boutique hotel in the trendy Palermo Soho neighborhood is a designer’s dream destinations. Our room was small but modern, with a glass-enclosed bathtub on our balcony.

The staff members were so lovely to us and had some great dinner recommendations. Every morning there were fresh flowers in our room and someone stopped by every evening with mints and a printed weather card with the next day’s forecast.

Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa in Hawaii

Located on gorgeous Kaanapali Beach, this resort offers honeymooners plenty of choices with six restaurants, three bars and all the spa treatments they can handle.

Real honeymooners Ari and Michelle called it “worth the splurge” and “a great hotel.” Another real couple, Mike and Erica , loved the fabulous pools, especially the swim-up drink spot known as the Grotto Bar. Mike was so blown away by the hospitality they received, he even wrote a letter to Hyatt upon his return home letting them know that the staff had been so “helpful in making our experience unforgettable.”

Hotel Gansevoort in New York City

A honeymoon in New York means fabulous late night dinners, big Broadway shows and some of the best shopping in the world. So you’ll want a hotel that’s equally super-stylish but also super-comfortable. The Gansevoort is located in the hip Meatpacking District right near the amazing new High Line Park. The hotel's rooftop bar and pool offers amazing skyline views. For those looking to seriously splurge, the 1400 sq. foot Duplex Penthouse has a custom pool table, three bathrooms and an oversized working fireplace.
