Which all-inclusive honeymoon is right for you?
Your wedding is all planned, but there is one more important step to take… planning your perfect honeymoon. Many of your friends have raved about their honeymoon experience, so why not just take their word for it and plan your own all-inclusive honeymoon getaway? First of all, your expectations may be different from your friends. When working with me, I will listen to you and ask the right questions so I can qualify you for the best options based on your personal interest. Your honeymoon is a special time, and is very different from a normal vacation. You want to make sure you plan it right!
I have personally traveled and toured many different destinations and styles of hotels. Every all-inclusive hotel is not the same, and price versus value are two completely different things. You may come across a property that looks amazing online for a great price, but there may be a reason that property is pricing that way. That hotel may offer less restaurants, charge surcharges on certain restaurants or specialty cuts of meat, offer lower end domestic alcohol, or less amenities in general. All resorts hire professional photographers, so what you see in the photos may be very different from what you see in person. With my knowledge and expertise, I will know what properties are a better value for your money, even if you’re traveling on a budget.
Some all-inclusive properties will be more geared towards families, and some properties are for adults only. Adult only all-inclusive properties add a certain ambiance that helps solidify a romantic getaway. There are places to get away, and make it feel like you and your fiancé are the only people there. There are also some properties that are great for group getaways since some people would prefer to spend their honeymoon with their closest friends and/or family. You may be a bride and groom that want to go somewhere that has a more nightlife, or you may want to go to a quiet boutique property where you feel more alone. This is when booking through me can be really helpful.
Some resorts will go the extra mile to make your honeymoon getaway feel extra special. My husband and I stayed at the Valentin Imperial Maya in the Riviera Maya for ours, and it was truly an amazing experience. We stayed in their Emerald Junior Suite room category, which are the rooms that are closest to the beach. We had a huge sunken in whirlpool in our room that had floor to ceiling windows that opened up to the outdoors. It was really romantic being able to sit in our Jacuzzi at night with the warm breeze coming through the window, looking up at millions of stars. The Valentin Imperial Maya also provided us with a bottle of champagne for us to enjoy in our room, along with one of the most delicious cakes I have ever tasted. They even gave me a special bracelet to wear around the property so all of their employees knew we were celebrating our honeymoon. They went the extra mile to make us feel very special.
Another great option for honeymoons are Karisma hotels and resorts. Karisma all-inclusive properties are located in Mexico, Punta Cana, and will soon to be in Jamaica. They are known for being gourmet all-inclusive resorts, so if you’re a foodie, this is the place for you. They have romantic adult’s only properties (El Dorado), family friendly properties (Azul) and properties that are great for people of any age (Generations). They also have an excellent honeymoon program that most resorts do not offer.

When booking with a GIVC certified agency for Karisma (Gourmet Inclusive Vacation Specialist), you will get a few extra inclusions above and beyond what Karisma already offers. For example, instead of receive a 2 for 1 Beachfront Sky Massage, you’ll receive the couples massage complimentary for two. I may be able to get you a free guaranteed upgrade based on availability as well. There are restrictions to Karisma Resorts romance package. For example, you must be going on your honeymoon within 30 days of your wedding (documentation required). When booking with me, they extend your travel time frame from 30 days after your wedding to 90, so this is a great benefit.
Some people shy away from booking with a travel agent because they think there are a lot of added cost involved. This is not the case. Booking with a travel agent can actually save you time and money, plus add a lot of extra value. We are experts at what we do, and we want make sure you have the very best experience possible. My goal is to offer you a stress free experience so you can enjoy the all-inclusive honeymoon of your dreams, and a lifetime of happy memories.
