Movie buff couples, why not take a Hollywood-themed honeymoon? Whether you do it in California or elsewhere, there are tons of wild movie-themed hotels that are perfect for wacky, unique honeymoons. Here they are!
Star Wars: Hôtel Sidi Driss, Tunisia
If you've ever fantasized about living in Luke Skywalker's childhood home, you can do it for less than the cost of a movie ticket and a medium popcorn at the Berber Hôtel Sidi Driss, Matmata, Tunisia! This is the location George Lucas found for Star Wars: A New Hope and other films in the series. The ancient architecture is of Berber origin, going back to around 260 BC, and consists of dwellings carved into the desert rock. George Lucas knew it was perfect, and Hotel Sidi Driss was a location fans will instantly recognize. The service isn't luxurious, but the environment is a must-visit for Skywalker superfans.
Harry Potter: The Georgian House Hotel, London
Welcome to Hogwarts! Or at least, about as close as you can get outside of Disney World's Wizarding World of Harry Potter. This family run B&B has a Wizard Chamber, combining gothic accents with wood-burning stoves, cauldrons, and mystical artifacts. Even if you're not a Harry Potter fan, it's perfect for a slightly spooky, magically mysterious London honeymoon!
James Bond 007: The Seven Hotel, Paris
Shaped like the barrel of a gun, the 007 Suite at The Seven Hotel in Paris is a luxury Bond-lover's hideaway with 007 decor, superspy-friendly details, and of course room service where you can order yourselves a pair of celebratory martinis -- shaken, not stirred.

The Wizard of Oz: The Roxbury Hotel., New York State
New York's Roxbury Hotel in the Catskills is known for its movie-themed rooms, and the Wizard of Oz room is one of the best. A honeymoon here is like booking a stay in the Emerald City, complete with the Yellow Brick Road. It's a truly wizarding experience!
Lord of the Rings: The Shire House, Montana
If you want to honeymoon like a hobbit, The Shire House in Montana is the perfect place. This VRBO rental is designed to look and feel like a hobbit home, but in an above-ground cabin with modern amenities and comforts. The bungalow is cute and delightful, with spacious yet cozy rooms and illuminated mushrooms lighting the front path. Hobbit and Tolkien art, decor, and artifacts make you feel like you've stepped into your own magical world. To flesh that world out far beyond the bungalow itself, the entire surrounding area has been turned into an entire hobbit village with endless charms just waiting to be discovered.
The Shining: The Stanley Hotel, Colorado
The enormous, sprawling Stanley Hotel was the inspiration for Stephen King's The Shining, famously made into a Jack Nicholson movie. He first set his book in an amusement park, but seeking a more desolate setting, The Stanley Hotel got his creative juices flowing. There have been more than a few hauntings here, so honeymooners should be ready to encounter some ghostly activity. Of course, for Stephen King fans, that's just the ticket! Although it wasn't there when King stayed there, and it was in the movie rather than the book, The Stanley Hotel now has a world-class hedge maze where guests can wander. Have a hauntingly romantic honeymoon and shine brightly together at The Stanley!
