One&Only Palmilla, Los Cabos, Mexico
The memory of last year's Hurricane Odile remains—but many damaged hotels are emerging even better than ever. One such property is the One&Only Palmilla, which has been completely rebuilt. Expect ocean-view guestrooms with private decks, personal butler service, and a new steakhouse from chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. (In other One&Only news, the Ocean Club in the Bahamas recently underwent a facelift, including expanded guest rooms and a new beachfront infinity pool.)

Las Catalinas, Guanacaste, Costa Rica
Admittedly, this is more of an entire beach town than a single hotel—but it's an exciting project all the same, complete with a Beach Club (opening in December), shops, restaurants, and a variety of hiking, biking, and horseback trails. Honeymooners can get in on the action by renting one of the many residences, including this beach-chic one-bedroom apartment. Come next year, there will be two boutique hotels to choose from.

Amanera, Dominican Republic
The latest from Aman Resorts is launching on November 23 on the island's northern coast, with 24 ocean-view casitas (plus a two-bedroom casa) set atop 60-foot cliffs. Guests can spend their days kite-surfing, deep-sea fishing, horseback riding, or just relaxing on the property's private seven-miles beach.

The Cape, a Thompson Hotel, Los Cabos, Mexico
The first all-new hotel to open since the hurricane is also the first Mexico property for the Thompson Hotel group. (The 161-room property's rooftop bar is another first—and only—for the area.) Other highlights include a restaurant from Mexico City's famed Enrique Olvera, two pools, a spa with ocean-view cabanas, and guestrooms with private balconies.

Casa Fayette, Guadalajara, Mexico
Guadalajara—Mexico's second-largest city—may not be the first place that comes to mind when planning a honeymoon, but it's worth a short visit for a stay at the latest project from Grupo Habita. Design buffs will especially love the 37-room property, with its stylish interiors designed by Italian firm Dimorestudio and location right in the main art district.
This seven-villa resort is set on the island's west coast. Each thatched-roof structure, which range from two- to four-bedroom, come complete with a private plunge pool, courtyard garden, outdoor showers, Hermes toiletries, and a fully-stocked fridge (the contents of which are discussed ahead of time with your personal butler). Don't want to cook your own meal? Chefs are also on call.
