Take a look at the destinations currently pinned on our Pinterest boards

Mii Amo Spa, Sedona, Arizona
This oasis in the desert is an awesome escape if you’re looking for a spa experience that’s not usually available in the country. A luxury spa + the view of the desert = breathtakingly beautiful!

Turtle Inn, Belize
Famed for its Sofia beach shack (as in Coppola), the Turtle Inn boasts of unspoiled beauty by the sea in the town of Punta Placencia in Belize. This resort is just one of the ones owned by the Coppola family, where they are said to unwind and vacation from time to time.

Palazzo Margherita, Bernalda, Italy
This quaint Italian hotel, also owned by the Coppola family, is a hideaway from the more bustling Italian cities. Imagine privately dining under the stars in a setting that’s worthy of the movies.

La Lancha, Peten, Guatemala
If you’re feeling outdoorsy in the jungle sense, this hidden hotel by the Peten Itza Lake is your bet. It has 10 casitas and a pontoon perfect for lazy days in the sun with your beloved. This isn’t your regular Jungle Book adventure, if you know what we mean!

Positano, Italy
This Cliffside village facing the Tyrrhenian Sea is an Instagrammer’s heaven – beautiful scenery every way you turn, shopping in small boutiques, quaint cafés and restaurants, and inns to satisfy your craving for beautiful Italian coast views. 

Walliser Alpentherme & Spa, Leukerbad, Switzerland
Heading out to chilly Switzerland isn’t just about skiing. You can check-in to this winter wonderland for pamper treatments, wellness services, and dips into their famed thermal baths that look out to the majestic Swiss Alps.

Hotel Ananda, Cartagena, Colombia
This boutique hotel sits in the heart of the port city of Cartagena, by the Caribbean coast. Both staying in and walking around the city can be quite the experience, with cultural influence still evident everywhere you go!

Niseko, Japan
Looking to stay in Asia for your honeymoon? If you’re not too keen on the usual cities such as Shanghai or Tokyo, Niseko in Japan is a good bet – magnificent views of snow, mountains, and great food await.
