It’s scientifically proven that a honeymoon is one of the most important travel endeavors you’ll ever embark upon — okay, maybe not scientifically, but it’s definitely up there (no pressure). And if there’s one other fact we can all agree on, it’s that the perfect destination is key (along with a bag full of newly purchased essentials). With this complete guide to honeymooning like a pro, we now pronounce you and your significant other ready for takeoff.

THE CITY

SLICKERS

WHERE TO GO: El Palauet, Barcelona

Barcelona’s Gràcia neighborhood is the perfect hybrid mix of city life and quiet escape, which also happens to be perfectly encapsulated at brand new boutique hotel El Palauet. The stunning two-bedroom Art Nouveau suites feature sky-high ceilings, a full kitchen, and access to a personal assistant. You’ll likely not want to leave the property, but if you do, there’s plenty to eat, see, and experience around the area with the Barceloneta beach neighborhood close by.

WHAT TO BRING: Barcelona’s bright, romantic feel calls for a pop of color. Load up a fun tasseled clutch with summery accessories and pair with an equally vibrant off-the-shoulder top and some strappy sandals to boot.

WHERE TO GO: The Ritz-Carlton, Aruba

Beach life doesn’t get much more luxe than Aruba’s finest five-star accommodation. Each and every one of its suites is outfitted with a private balcony overlooking the island below, so between the view, the insane breakfast spread, and the two pools alongside the crystal-clear Caribbean, you’ll be without a care in the world, cocktail and beach bag in hand.

WHAT TO BRING: A funky high-wasted bikini bottom and LOTS of skincare products, like our favorite Shiseido sunscreen. Colorful sandals are always a good idea, too.

WHERE TO GO: Amangiri, Canyon Point, Utah

There’s nothing in the world quite like Amangiri, Utah’s luxe desert destination tucked amid a cluster of canyons. The quiet and awe-inspiring resort channels the surrounding terrain and is comprised of minimal-chic suites, some with a private pool and others with a roof terrace. Needless to say, Amangiri makes for a honeymoon you won’t soon forget.

WHAT TO BRING: Chic, desert-inspired ensembles and jewelry to wear from day to night. We’re digging the Robert Lee Morris Soho collection paired with a cute romper to for an elevated, natural tone look.

WHERE TO GO: Banff, Alberta, Canada

You know those stunning, turquoise-hued Instagrams dotted with snow-capped mountains and ice-laden pine trees? That would be Banff, Canada’s most photogenic special occasion destination. So whether you and your S/O are athletically inclined or just enjoy a breathtaking backdrop, this is the place for you. During your stay, call the Fairmont Banff Springs home – with an idyllic location right in the heart of Banff National Park and a highly lauded spa with hot springs, this outdoorsy yet opulent accommodation is the best of both worlds.

WHAT TO BRING: Lots and lots of activewear for hikes and downtime. And don’t forget to stay hydrated – be sure to bring a water bottle along.

Shop the look: Adidas sweatshirt & pants and Nike sneakers & watch.

WHERE TO GO: Hôtel Providence, Paris

With the risk of sounding cliché, Paris is always a good idea. It is, after all, the epicenter of all things gastronomic, especially with some of the world’s most renowned wine destinations just a stone’s throw away. Check into Hôtel Providence for a chic Parisian retreat, alternating days of exploring Paris, working your way through the wine list on the restaurant’s terrasse, and taking mini-trips to regions like Reims, where age-old cellars like that of Maison de Champagne Taittinger await.

WHAT TO BRING: Classic, understated outerwear, a statement tote, and the perfect French red lip.

Shop the look: Michael Michael Kors trench, Splendid tote and Lancome lipstick.
