Honeymoon

I know there are a ton of posts on honeymoons, but none seem to line up and I wanted to try and get some opinions.  I am a Platinum MR member with 500,000+ points.  I am trying to find an appropriate location for our honeymoon 9/27-10/4.  One of the issues I'm running into is that the majority of Marriott's beaches are in the Carribbean and SE Asia, two of the worst places to be this time of year (Hurricane Season and Monsoon Season).

 

The finace and I are looking for a beach and some privacy (not a ton of kids).  Any suggestions?  The sky is the limit (and even then I have enough airline miles to do as we please).

 

Our current thoughts are:

  • Playa Andaluza Spain
  • JW Phuket (monsoon threat)
  • Costa Rica (hurricane and wet season threat)
  • Curacao
  • Sharm El Sheikh Egypt

 

We would really like to get out of the US, but otherwise recommendations (and detailed reasons why) would be helpful, as well as when you took your trip.

Thanks in advance!

    Congratulations on your upcoming marriage!

     

    I can recommend the Marbella Beach Resort in Spain.  There is a thread on both the Playa and Marbella resorts...   http://www.marriottrewardsinsiders.marriott.com/message/8255#8255

     

    Egypt is on my list but I would spend more than a week there and stay at Marriott's in each location.

    Stepping,

     

    This sounds like such a nice place and great deal, I may just want to go by anyway!

     

    Never been to Australia, but never heard anyone say they did not have a great time there!
