A honeymoon without one is like a dinner without dessert. Here, three swims you’ll want to dive right into:
Amangiri in Canyon Point, Utah
The dip: Like a mirage, this retreat’s oasis wraps around a dusky-red 165-million-year-old Entrada Sandstone escarpment (pictured here). Settle onto a king-size daybed with epic mesa views, order a prickly-pear margarita with hibiscus-infused tequila, and know you can die happy now (from $1,100/night, amanresorts.com).
The Raleigh in Miami
The dip: Pack your biggest sunglasses and teeniest bikini! This Art Deco beauty backs see-and-be-seen South Beach (the sand is just a shimmy away). But even though it’s in a party town, the atmosphere only reaches Spring Breakers-level rowdiness, well, during spring break. The rest of the year, it’s heaven for honeymooners (from $280/night, raleighhotel.com).
The Library in Koh Samui, Thailand
The dip: This ruby-red tiled swimming spot is as refreshing as they come. Leave the mattress-versus-adult-size-beanbag decisions to a quick game of eeny-meeny before diving on in. Then make your way to the far side of the pool, rest your elbows on the sleek teak deck, and take in the endless ocean beyond (from $300/night, thelibrary.co.th).
