Just don’t forget to put up the do-not-disturb sign.

If part of what attracted you to your now-spouse (love saying that, eh?) was his or her quest and thirst for travel, then your honeymoon can’t be a simple beach getaway. Instead, you both seek the opportunity to digest a new culture, while also taking time to relax, unwind and connect together after all the wedding planning chaos. When you make the trek out to Asia, you can spend a few days in Singapore — wandering it’s one-of-a-kind streets and crazy foods — take a short ferry ride to Bintan, Indonesia. This small sliver of the world features breathtaking nautical views and the privacy a honeymoon requires. Especially since many urbanscapes in Asia can be busy, bustling and at times, overwhelming, retreating to this wonderland will be just what you both ordered.

Where to Stay: The Sanchaya
Your only trouble at this must-stay in one of the best honeymoon destinations in February will be figuring out how you’re going to move in permanently. In addition to wine and cheese pairing with the estate sommelier at a glass-walled wine cellar (and an ocean view), you can also savor a four-course menu at a candle-lit table on the beach. For an extra dose of romance (ahem, especially on Valentine’s Day!), consider expressing your feelings vai a love note on a sky lantern that you release for good luck. Want a bath for two drawn for ya? They’ll take care of that, too.
