2015 Travel Awards: Bang for Your Buck

We crisscrossed the planet to find the best honeymoon-perfect resorts, beaches, all-inclusives and more for our first-ever Travel Awards.

TIE! Winners: Rockhouse, Negril, Jamaica and Punta Monterrey, San Pancho, Mexico

Rockhouse: Built into the cliffs on the western edge of Jamaica, this 34-room sustainable boutique hotel has a gorgeous freshwater infinity pool overlooking the ocean, an award-winning spa and thatched-roof bungalows with open-air showers and four-poster beds topped with mosquito netting. A honeymoon here has a reggae soundtrack and a Red Stripe-infused energy. Spend the day getting a Blue Mountain coffee scrub in the spa or snorkeling in the reefs off the coast; then dine on jerk chicken and curried shrimp with papaya (room rates start at $95 a night; rockhousehotel.com).

Punta Monterrey: The 12-villa resort is located deep in the jungle and set right on the bank of a very private, sandy white beach. Once an exclusive enclave for family and friends for almost a decade, the property opened to the public last year. Hill-perched and beachside villas are truly rustic, yet all equipped with spacious balconies. Delectable home-cooked meals (with most produce and fruits from the on-site garden) are included in the wallet-friendly rate (room rates start at $80 per person, per night and are all inclusive; monterreybeach.com).
