It’s not just about views of a postcard-perfect beach on honeymoon – lovely though they undoubtedly are. Beyond the beach, it’s often the hotel room view that makes a lasting impression.

Escape the obvious with Exsus Travel and wake up to these incredible views on an extra-special luxury honeymoon with a difference. From Chile to Cambodia, these hotspots with enviable hotel room views are guaranteed to make your honeymoon unique and memorable.
Tierra Atacama, Chile
At Tierra Atacama, immerse yourself in the striking lunar landscapes of Chile’s Atacama Desert on a truly otherworldly honeymoon. After a scenic trek and a swim in natural hot springs, a crystalline lagoon or the infinity pool, soak up the panoramic views over the volcanoes and mountains. Be mesmerised by the pink and purple skies as the sun sets over the desert, accompanied by a Rica Rica Sour cocktail from the bar.
Six Senses Yao Noi, Thailand
The luxurious villas at Six Senses Yao Noi, tucked away on a secluded hillside on the island of Yao Noi, overlook lush tropical gardens, the stunning limestone peaks of Phang Nga and the Andaman Sea. Enjoy the hotel room views all day, from champagne breakfasts and indulgent yacht trips to sundowners on your terrace and barbecues under the stars. Each villa has its own infinity pool, and some have direct beach access for premium relaxation. For the ultimate in honeymoon luxury, the aptly-named The View villa has its own private cinema and 360-degree panoramic vistas.
Bensley Collection – Shinta Mani Wild, Cambodia
Bensley Collection – Shinta Mani Wild comes from the impressive stable of quirky, world-renowned hotel designer Bill Bensley, and is guaranteed to make your honeymoon (and hotel room view) one to remember. This secluded riverside retreat in the pristine Cambodian rainforest takes glamping to whole new heights, literally – its colourful custom-designed tents (styled on a ‘Jackie O meets Cambodian safari’ vibe) are raised above the ground, overlooking the water, offering exceptional views of the river and gushing waterfalls from your terrace. Bensley Butlers are on hand 24 hours a day to ensure your stay is simply perfect.
Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, Canada
Get away from it all and immerse yourself in some of Canada’s most remote and beautiful landscapes at Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, nestled in a UNESCO-protected biosphere reserve in British Colombia, where bears roam and whales glide through the clear waters. From arriving by private plane to romantic mountaintop picnics in the clouds, it really is rather special. Watch the sun rise from your luxury waterfront tent in this spectacular setting.
Shipwreck Lodge, Namibia
This is a beach destination, but not the kind of beach you’re thinking of – this is a beach hotel with a difference. Shipwreck Lodge is set on the rugged, windswept Skeleton Coast in Namibia, amongst towering dunes beside the Atlantic Ocean. The design of the 10 unique cabins is inspired by the shipwrecks strewn across the far-flung coastline, and they have cosy interiors with wood-burning stoves. After a 4×4 adventure in the dunes and spotting wildlife such as hyenas and otters, settle on your deck to watch the ever-changing views across the sands to the waves.
