Where to travel for your honeymoon?
Fancy sipping cocktails at sunset overlooking the caldera cliff of Santorini?
How about a tranquil and private sanctuary all in the comfort of your resort room in the Maldives?
Maybe a cosy winter getaway is more your style? The options for the perfect honeymoon are endless but we’ve listed our top spots below!
This seems like an obvious choice, yes, but Santorini is so much more than the photos saturated across Instagram and the view really does take your breath away... Having been to Santorini every time we visit Greece, there’s just something that keeps bringing us back! The atmosphere, the architecture, the culture, food, sunset, view and relaxed vibe (just to name a few…) perfectly complements our dream holiday.
Where to stay? We love staying in Imerovigli, centrally located between Thira and Oia with the best spot of the caldera. If you are after somewhere special, Rocabella, Cavo Tagoo and West East Suites are the perfect resorts to unwind after your wedding and hey, you deserve it!
As you may have noticed, we seek out the warmth of summer in our holidays which is why Maldives has made the number 2 spot. Relaxing in your overwater bungalow surrounded by endless ocean views whilst drinking fresh coconuts and having no idea what day or time it is, is right where we want to be!
Where to stay? Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa is a beautiful resort located just beyond the equator which you can only access by a private flight arranged by the resort. The picture perfect Resort and Spa is truly a tropical sanctuary positioned on its own private heart shaped island of Addu Atolll. Another beautiful resort is the Huvafen Fushi Maldives – an all-inclusive adults only resorts with paradise at your fingertips and the ocean at your doorstep.
There’s just something about Positano… The Amalfi Coast is the ultimate destination for love – the mixture of relaxed romance, chic coastlines and beautiful skylines all create the perfect setting for your honeymoon.
Where to stay? Hotel Villa Franca is a chic boutique hotel newly renovated and transformed from a private residence. With picture perfect views from the best spot in Positano, but be prepared for the 700 steps from the hotel to the beach! You’ll be burning that pizza and pasta off in no time. Another recommendation would be the beautiful Le Sirenuse – centrally located in Positano, the resort boasts luxury and is no surprise it is one of the Leading Hotels of the World.
Speaking of pizza and pasta, Chez Black offers a perfectly located restaurant situated right on the main beach of Positano. Imagine sippin’ on Sprit’z whilst people watching and taking in the coastal surroundings. We happened to visit Positano over their traditional festivities during August and were delightfully treated to music and bands performing through the streets and fireworks which lit up the sky after the sunset, and we had the perfect views from the rooftop at Hotel Villa Franca.
Now, Japan is a country that is high up on my travel list but we have never actually visited before! This is a big call as you will notice, Japan is the only non-beach destination that has made it on the list – so for someone that follows summer all year round, Japan must be a special place!
We would love to visit either during their winter for the ski season or during cherry blossom season (Sakura Season) during the end of March to the second week of April. Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka to name a few are very high up on our list and would be the perfect honeymoon destination if you love the cooler seasons!
Where to stay? Hotel Villa Hakuba for the snow and The Peninsula for the city!
6. The Caribbean
If you like Pina Colada’s…. Well, we know we do. We’re visiting the Caribbean this July and cannot wait to see the beautiful beaches, white sand and pristine waters of The Bahamas. There are so many incredible islands of the Caribbean that we would love to visit but we’re sticking to the Bahamas for this one and spending some extra time there to take it all in.
The Caribbean has so many perfect options for a peaceful escape from all the wedding stress and with so many islands to choose from, you may even want to consider a cruise to see them all and wake up at a new island every morning! What a way to experience all the islands!
Where to stay? Baha Mar is a beautiful resort in the Bahamas providing unmatched luxury in authentic Bahamian leisure, featuring three different resorts to stay in! The Rosewood, Grand Hyatt and SLS. We will be sure to share lots of pictures of them all to make your decision easier, it’s the least we can do!
With so many beautiful locations around the world to choose from, these are just some of our top picks for the perfect honeymoon spot! So now the question is, where will you decide on?
