The 10 Most Dreamy Luxury Honeymoon Hotels in Europe
A European honeymoon is all about refined culture, classic elegance, and timeless romantic settings. That is why the honeymoon hotel you choose can make all the difference! It’s not just about the locations, or the luxury suites fit for kings (and queens). What sets these honeymoon hotels on this list apart from the rest is the service; you can rest easy knowing that every detail of your experience is taken care of and thoughtfully executed. So that when you get back from exploring your destination of choice, you know that you can fully relax in decadent luxury. These are truly the most dreamy honeymoon hotels in all of Europe and each one is bucket-list worthy in it of itself!
If you’re looking for a secluded, quiet Italian honeymoon resort that screams luxury while whispering “La Dolce Vita”, Belmond Hotel Caruso in Ravello, Italy is it. While Positano and many areas of the Amalfi Coast are busy and bustling with crowds in the summertime, this romantic gem of the Amalfi Coast remains charming, relaxing, and ultra-quiet. Ravello is a tiny town tucked 1000 feet up into the cliff-sides of Italy, and is one of my absolute favorite places in the world, with stunning panoramic views, gorgeous classic Italian hotels, and an adorable town full of delicious Italian restaurants and enotecas (wine bars). The Belmond Hotel Caruso is the ultimate place to soak up everything the Italian town, and the Amalfi Coast, has to offer. Not to mention it has one of the most beautiful infinity pools in the world!!!
France has a way of making everything feel a bit more glamorous, am I right? And no honeymoon in France would be complete without a visit to the infamous Provence region. Nestled high on a cliff next to a 12th century castle in the charming village of Gordes, lies La Bestide. Formerly a stately home from the time when French art and living was at its peak, you’ll notice the old world charm in the dry stone walls, leather bound books and Louis XV antiques. With a brand new Sisley spa, four swimming pools and a second restaurant by Michelin-starred chef Pierre Gagnaire, there is no lack of things to do when you’re not exploring the rustic countryside. Did I mention the hotel offers picture-perfect panoramic views over the Luberon valley from its many terraces and hanging gardens? DREAMY.

Looking for the most famous hotel in Europe? The ritzy French Riviera Hotel du Cap Eden Roc may just be it. Dramatically perched on the tip of Cap d’Antibes, this 142-year-old hotel with 118 sun-drenched rooms, a Champagne lounge, a seaside spa, a private pier, and a saltwater swimming pool is a Côte d’Azur icon. It is a favorite among celebrities and the jet-set alike, and is easily one of the most iconic honeymoon destinations in the French Riviera.
Another French Riviera favorite is the Four Seasons Cap Ferrat. Set amongst other luxury villas that all date back to the 1800’s, this incredible French-chateau-turned-hotel sits along the sparkling crystal clear French Riviera. The main building is a majestic white palace draped in marble. Boasting their own exclusive guests-only beach club and salt-water infinity pool, it’s safe to say there will be plenty of romantic lounging options for you and your new spouse. Bring on the bottles of rosé! If you’re tired after a long day of sunbathing, there’s even a glass bubble cable car that takes you too and from the beach area! Oo La la! This is what France honeymoon dreams are made of!
It comes as no surprise that dreamy Lake Como is home to some of the most glamorous hotels in the world, and the Mandarin Oriental more than delivers on all high expectations. With old-school elegance, epic gardens, stunning views and even a pool that seamlessly floats on the lake – this hotel redefines the meaning of “fantasy suite”. A true oasis and still just 45 minutes from the bustling city of Milan! Just when you were thinking there’s no way it could get even better, they threw in a Michelin Star restaurant to top it all off (you already know food is the easiest way to my heart). Take a sunset boat cruise, explore the nearby villages, go wine tasting or maybe don’t even leave the quiet elegance of your room…
If you’re looking for a true escape, where you can reconnect with the beauty of nature while not missing out on a single ounce of luxury, then the Belmond La Residencia on the island of Mallorca is the spot for you. Two 16th- and 17th-century manor houses, on a hill facing the village of Deià, have been stunningly combined to make this beautiful hotel, furnished with artfully-chosen Mallorcan antiques, modern canvases, and canopied four-poster beds in every room. You’ll have the pristine rocky coastline and picturesque mountain views all to yourself. You’ll be treated to world-class dining your whole trip, with produce such as herbs, olives, fruit, and flowers from the hotel’s lush landscaped gardens coming straight to the kitchen and the guest rooms.
