5. Newport Rhode Island
If you love American history, Newport is a great and romantic seaside resort. Newport has long catered to the country’s upper-crust, and you likely would have probably bumped into a Vanderbilt at The Chanler at Cliff Walk in the late 1800s. Today, rooms are decorated in the styles of different historical periods, each more extravagant than the next. Sweeping views of the ocean and decadent six course Valentine's Day dinners are just a few of the romantic features. There is the beautiful Martha’s Vineyard villa, an ocean-view beauty with a mantled fireplace, two prim blue chairs, and a full-canopied four-poster king bed with an intricately carved wooden frame as the focal point. There's a reason—or ten—why this hotel is often voted the most romantic hotel in America.
The Maldives tops the charts for honeymoons and romantics alike. There are high-end private overwater bungalows and secluded beaches to visit on over 1,000 coral islands that make up the Maldives.
For the adventurous, you can even dine underwater.
If you are looking for optimal luxury, opt for a stay at Soneva Fushi, often chosen as the islands' most high-end resort. If you are after service you know and love in a place that seems far away and unfamiliar, Four Seasons Maldives and One & Only Reethi Rah are beautiful as well.
