The Best Destinations for “Buddymooning”

Bring the whole wedding party on your honeymoon

When you’ve found more than enough love to go around, it’s only natural to share your happiness with your closest friends—those ride-or-die confidantes who make every day—any day—more meaningful. As independently minded couples bring new energy to weddings, more personalized customs emerge, like the “Buddymoon,” a way to express not only your life as a twosome, but also as members of a loyal community. So, after the ceremony, don’t say goodbye to your friends. Instead say, “Let’s roll,” because Cuvée has the perfect places for you to be all alone—together.

Royal Island Buddymoons

Luxurious in its access to nature, our secluded 430-acre expanse of private island in a turquoise sea is designed to accommodate 10 to 18 guests in total privacy. The five intimate beachfront bungalows, each with sea-view wraparound deck, reveal the natural charm and authenticity of Caribbean culture. Spend these most precious days with your friends participating in every imaginable water activity followed by wellness spa treatments under palm trees, the traditional symbol for peace.

And it wouldn’t be a Cuvée destination without the chance to experience true locavore cuisine, from dinners on the beach to a fresh catch seafood cooking class before enjoying a movie night under the stars.

Cabo Buddymoons

Experience the authenticity of Mexico from our private villas in the gated community of Villas Del Mar, a golf cart ride from the One & Only Palmilla Resort. With ocean views, the 4 and 6-suite villas keep you front and center for beach activities, from surfing to volleyball, while creating a perfect home base for offsite explorations: Hike the Sierra de la Laguna mountain range, a designated UNESCO biosphere reserve, or explore local cantinas to track down the perfect margarita and crispy Baja fish taco.

Before you leave, gather for a last evening in-villa for a tequila and tapas tasting, your chance to drink in the heritage of this special part of the world.

Hawaiian Buddymoons

It’s the perfect climate as well as the spirit of the people that make this one of the most beautiful places on earth, and our two 5-bedroom Hualalai Estate villas on the fairway of The Four Season Hualalai Ke’olu Golf Course showcase the most spectacular sunrise and sunsets you’ll ever see.

Enjoy the resort’s world-class amenities of pro-level tennis courts, fully equipped gym, and ultra-luxurious wellness spa with bespoke apothecary treatments. Back in the villa, relax on the expansive terraces with private pool and hot tub, before taking advantage of the freshest fish, learning to make sushi from Cuvée’s private chef, paired with a selection of premium sakes for a true Island experience. 

St. Barts Buddymoons

From picturesque red roofed houses to superb beaches with powder soft sand, St. Barts is a unique combination of Caribbean casual and French chic. At our 4 and 5-suite villas in St. Jean, Lorient Bay, and Colombier Village, idle away the hours in your infinity pool, taking in the endless vista where the sea meets the sky, and enjoy the ease of indoor-outdoor life with alfresco cooking and dining.

Then head out to the dazzling duty-free boutique shopping, or make it a Rosé day on the water via luxury catamaran, yachting your way to the hidden coves with our favorite captain Miguel, making stops along the way so you can dive or snorkel when the Island spirit moves you.

Anguilla Buddymoons

Little Bay Haven, our cliffside oasis in Anguilla, features two 5-suite villas, each with its own infinity pool, large jacuzzi, lounge and entertainment area. Situated in absolute, picturesque privacy, the contemporary multi-level architecture offers clear sea views and sleek furnishings that reflect casually elegant island style.

Night-lit tennis courts with cabana lounge, home theatres, exercise and games rooms will keep everyone busy. But for extra adventures, you can take off sailing, kitesurfing, and scuba diving adventures, where the unusually clear waters provide a rare look at the surrounding coral reefs, colorful habitats for sea life.

wine tasting

Tuscany Buddymoons

There’s no better place to satisfy farm-to-table appetites than our Tuscan villas, restored in a mix of natural simplicity and sophisticated design. Known as luxury “agriturismo”— or a style of vacationing in authentic Italian country life—the 5 to 11-bedroom farmhouses are set in the rolling hills of Chianti Classico, Italy’s longest established viniculture region within driving distance of Florence and Siena.

Indulge your culinary curiosity in all the regional specialties, from olive oil and wine tastings to artisanal cheeses and a modern craft brewing scene, utilizing local ingredients like chestnuts and native grain from the area’s farmers. Then gather together on the stone terrace for a handmade pizza session before sliding your masterpiece into the wood-burning oven.
