It’s easy to forget things in the postwedding scramble — like your passport. With or without it, you can still get away.
For Here: Wheatleigh, Lenox, Massachusetts
Explore the quaint Berkshires by day; by night, nest in The Aviary, the hotel’s two-story suite with a limestone wet room, antique soaking tub, and bedroom in the trees.
To Go: Kanopi House, Blue Lagoon, Jamaica
Leaving your well-appointed wood-frame bungalow in the jungle doesn’t mean you’re losing luxury. Even on a guided bamboo raft tour down the Rio Grande river, the bar and snacks raft is never far behind.
For Here: Amangiri Resort and Villas, Lake Powell, Utah
Think saying “I do” was a rush? Try the rock climbing, canyoning, fishing, and extreme spa-ing at this 34-room, 31-villa oasis in a private valley neighboring the Grand Canyon.
To Go: Uxua Casa Hotel, Trancoso, Brazil
Just getting to this fishing village is a thrill-seeking adventure. Once you conquer reservations for the Gulab Mahal cottage, recoup on the beach or by the aventurine quartz pool.
For Here: Solage Calistoga, Napa Valley, California
Wind your way through wine country and settle into the hotel’s Capella Suite. Bask in the area’s many natural hot springs or relax indoors in the suite’s hot tub or deluxe bathtub (for two, naturally).
To Go: Evason Ma’In, Ma’In, Jordan
The therapeutic waters here feed the Dead Sea — and the main pool at the Six Senses Spa. If that doesn’t make the trek worth it, the honeymoon suite, with views of Wadi Mujib gorge, will. Bonus: There’s a separate sleeping area for bodyguards.
For Here: Hidden Pond, Kennebunkport, Maine
This seaside town is the last place on earth they’d think to look for you. Lay claim to either the Lucky or Silent Pine private cabin. Then book it to the tent spa for a companion massage.
To Go: Serinn House, Cappadocia, Turkey
After all the wedding planning, you might feel like crawling into a cave. You can, at this five-room hotel made entirely of stone.
For Here: The Yachts of Seabourn, Eastern Seaboard
You’ll need your sea legs for a boutique cruise leaving from ports along the coast. You might be able to spare only the nine days it takes to get from New York City to Quebec, but 27 will get you across the Atlantic.
To Go: Zambezi Queen, Kasane, Botswana
Beat around the bush via four-by-four, visit nearby villages by tender boat, or simply enjoy Chobe National Park from the decks of the well-appointed fourteen-cabin riverboat.
