You say “Interlaken and surrounding area”. By surrounding area I suspect you were thinking of the Jungfrau Region but we’ve stayed for many years in the summer a little way up the lake in Spiez and specifically the Hotel Restaurant Seegarten Marina. The hotel does a half board option within your budget although it’s not that obvious from the website. There’s no swimming pool or spa unless you count the lake or the public pool!
Spiez is an excellent centre for exploring as you can take boats in two directions or trains in four and there are some nice local walks as well. It’s about 20 minutes by train to Interlaken or an hour and a quarter by lake steamer. Or you can go the other way to Thun or Bern.
The hotel is right on lake Thun (Thunersee) in a beautiful position by the Marina and convenient for the lake boats. Yes, it’s a sharp 15-minute walk up to the station (10 minutes down!) although occasional buses meet the boats.
All in all it’s a beautiful alternative to the more touristy bustle of Interlaken and, I think, an excellent honeymoon destination.
I have to add that we have no connection with the hotel other than as very happy long term customers.
