Weddings & Honeymoons in Cuba
Completely Bespoke Travel & Experiences
Whether you fancy glamorous and chic or rustic and romantic, Cuba is the Caribbean’s best-kept secret for honeymooners. In Havana, the Capitolio Suite at the restored Hotel Saratoga, is the perfect haven in downtown. Escape from the bustle of the streets to the hotel’s rooftop pool, before a pampering at the spa, and a soak in the in-room colonial-style freestanding bathtub. Or, for honeymooners seeking a private urban bolt hole, hide away in a penthouse suite with an alfresco pool, and lounge on daybeds with bird’s-eye views of the ocean. Tour the capital in an antique convertible American car that will glide past the capital’s highlights before dropping you at one of the city’s famous private restaurants such as boho chic La Guarida, or Café Laurent with its alfresco penthouse dining. The Saratoga’s concierge will have mapped your nocturnal wanderings finding the best of the night’s musical melodies across town, but not before a post-prandial mojito and a Cuban cigar on the terrace of the 1930s Hotel Nacional.
After hedonistic nights in Havana, escape to Cuba’s beach retreats dotted along the north coast of the island. Your chauffeured American convertible can whisk you through the mountains to Cayo Levisa where small rustic cottages line the sugar-white sands of this small island. Alternatively, head east, through rolling sugar cane fields, to Cayo Santa María, and to one of Cuba’s top honeymooning hotels, the Iberostar Ensenachos, which unwinds across the dazzling sands of the cayo’s top two golden beaches.
At Cayo Coco, the Hotel Meliá Cayo Coco unwraps around a sandy paradise for honeymooners and sits on limpid aquamarine waters. From here, a private picnic on stunning Playa Pilar can be arranged for adventurous romantics. Further, east, beyond the rolling hills and Royal Palms of Guardalavaca, are secret sandy coves, bordered by granite boulders and sea grape, and lapped by turquoise warm waters — the perfect escape for couples seeking seclusion. Also, for those who venture out of their suite at the Paradisus Río de Oro Resort, the Yhi spa with its luxe treatments await, as well as hammocks and romantic gazebos scattered amid the lush tropical gardens.
For a complete fly-and-flop getaway, board a plane to the long, sparkling sands and starfish of Cayo Largo, lolling of the island’s southern coast. Across Cuba’s beach havens, back-to-nature escapists can trek, ride horses, and board steam trains while the mermaids within can dive, snorkel, fish, swim with dolphins, and sail into the sunset on catamarans stocked with Havana Club, Cuba’s liquid gold.
