Designing A Honeymoon Suite

By: James Gunaseelan

With so much money being spent on wedding these days, it only makes sense to capitalize on the trend by catering to this money spending demographic and offering honeymoon suites at your hotel or resort. Many businesses shy away from providing a honeymoon suite because they feel it is not as multi-purpose as other rooms. They do not expect an elderly couple, a family with tantrum throwing kids or a couple of students to want the same décor and features as someone would in a honeymoon suite. However, there are options to create a honeymoon suite in your lodging establishment while keeping it versatile enough to be used year round.

The main thing is to market your honeymoon suite well but require advance reservations. That way you can make your executive suite into a honeymoon suite without having to go through a major overhaul.

Pick a few of your top-rated rooms and see to it that the color schemes are neutral yet have warmth and personality. For instance, white walls are neutral but they are so hospital-like that no one would feel warm and invited there. Conversely, bright yellow may be perfect for a kid's suite with bunk beds and a Spongebob Squarepants theme, but would be hard to make versatile. Instead opt for taupe, deep ivory, pale green and other such colors that can be multi-purpose.

Long gone are the days when a honeymoon suite had to have a four poster canopy bed complete with lace bedding. Younger couples today like contemporary design, straight lines and minimum fuss. The important thing here is that the size of the bed should be king or California king, the mattress should b top notch and the bed linen of a very high thread count.

It amazes analysts why many hotel guests are fascinated with bathrooms and rank good bathrooms as top features in surveys. Again, stay with modern, elegant design with a hot tub big enough for two people ad plush towels and bath robes easily available.

Guests in a honeymoon suite will usually not follow a schedule so 24/7 room service options with a friendly, not groggy, bellboy would be perfect. Some hotels get business the conventional way, by offering something 'free'. A free extra night in the honeymoon suite if you book two, for instance is a very tempting offer which many newlyweds might find hard to refuse.

Any room can quickly be converted into a honeymoon suite by arranging fresh flowers, stocking the mini-bar with premium choices, having a box of fine chocolates, scattering rose petals on the bed and respecting the 'Do not Disturb' sign.
