10 Honeymoon hotspots

There is no better way to cap off a lifetime commitment then with a trip of a lifetime. Here's where to go for the most exceptional - and exotic - experiences.

If you can score a reservation in one of the four villas at the Eagles Nest resort in the Bay of Islands, you will achieve a new level of privacy.

Each large villa is like a self-contained mini-hotel and there are no shared public spaces. The larger villas have their own infinity pools and private Jacuzzis, and all come with flat screen TVs and fireplaces. The honeymooners' favorite is the First Light Temple (pictured) - with an all glass shower. (Rates start at $650 a night.)

If you actually want to do something while you are there, you can try deep sea fishing, sailing, whale watching, sea kayaking, parasailing, sky diving, water skiing, scuba diving or snorkeling.

Then take a 40-minute flight to the city of Auckland, and stay in one of the 13 rooms at the Mollies Boutique Hotel, which was named best new small hotel in the world in 2005 by Harper's Hideaway Report.

The honeymoon package, which costs $1400 a night, includes breakfast in bed, a day of spa treatments followed by a five-course dinner (New Zealand is famous for its Pacific Rim Cuisine) and a drawn bath in the evening.
