Honeymoon Destination Spotlight: Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel & Spa


There are so many beautiful places to visit in the world and sometimes we think the further we travel, the more beautiful the vacation spot. However, in this case–at least for all you US Citizens–it’s not so far, as one of the most gorgeous honeymoon destinations is right here in the states! I had the pleasure of scoping out Monterey, California and staying at the newly renovated Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel & Spa for a weekend visit. The lasting impact it’s had on me can’t even be described in words. There are stunning beaches left and right, charmingly quaint neighboring towns like Carmel, nationally acclaimed golf courses and Big Sur… all within a short driving distance. Whether you are planning your honeymoon or just a quick weekend getaway, I recommend staying at the Hyatt Regency Monterey to check out all the gorgeous places that I’ll highlight below.
