Imagine that you have just spent months planning your wedding, worried about time-lines and obsessed that every detail went perfect. Now imagine where you want to kick back, relax, play and create a wonderful honeymoon memory with your new husband. Whether your honeymoon is five days, a week or more, this time together will be much needed.
Honeymooners have lots of places to choose from, so whether you’re planning on going to an exotic & adventurous location, a relaxing beach vacation, a nonstop safari, a romantic ski trip or even a cruise to various islands, your trip should be based on your joint personality. We have searched the globe to find the most popular honeymoon destinations which are chosen by many. These are the top 5 honeymoon destinations in the world.
When you are looking for a honeymoon full of old world charm and romance, a trip to Italy guarantees you will get lost on cobblestone streets, in old classic churches and bistros out of paintings and fall in love all over again. No matter the part of Italy you chose to explore you will no doubt find yourself taking moonlight walks, enjoying scrumptious meals, experiencing wonderful museums & art, great wine, fabulous culture and feel as if your feeling as passionate about each other as you are about life.
Choosing a specific region of Italy is too hard for us, as we love it all, from the drama and character of Rome, the romance and one-of a kind atmosphere of Venice, the rolling hills of sunflowers in Tuscany, the endless Florentine culture & shopping in Florence, to the amazing and gorgeous views from the lake and mountains in Lake Como, there is something for everyone.
There is too much about Italy to be specific to one region, but a trip to any of them is sure to leave you wanting more. We urge honeymooners considering Italy to study the areas that fit their personality more, for some who find wine fun and important, a tour of the wine country is perfect, for some who love fashion and nightlife Milan is the place to go, for those who love the water you will want to consider Capri, Lake Como or Venice.
There is also the numerous historic & religious parts of Italy that will strike our honeymooners as a “must see” from the Vatican, to the Coliseum, Pompeii and even the spiritual bliss of Assisi. However long your honeymoon will be or wherever in Italy you land, I am sure you will wonder why Columbus ever left and find this magical and historic place the trip of a lifetime.
Say “aloha” to love and romance on this magical island where you will spend your days lounging by the pool or beach or exploring the many natural wonders of this tropical heaven. Then spend your nights dancing in the moonlight enjoying fabulous foods, culture and romance in these islands that many say were created for lovers. Most hotels in the Hawaiian Islands even cater to honeymooners offering a slew of packages, making this destination an easy, “no brainer” place of choice for honeymoon travel.
There’s nothing more romantic then long walks on the beach, sunsets and the sounds of guitars softly playing as you relax the night away. These islands don’t only offer beaches and romance they also offer culture, adventure and diversity which is why couples discover that researching each island before you book is the way to go.
Once you research the many islands & choices of Hawaii, you will see they offer newlyweds both the post-wedding escape they need combined with the romance and peaceful atmosphere a honeymoon demands. We love six Islands of Aloha that are home to treasures unlike any others on the planet: including the extraordinary cliffs of the Napali Coast on Kauai, to the vibrant & gorgeous shores of Waikiki Beach on Oahu.
Let’s not forget the miles & miles of white sands of the Papohaku Beach on Molokai to the tranquil waters of Hulopoe Bay in Lanai. There is also the summit of Haleakala Crater on Maui and then don’t miss the primal energy of Kilauea Volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island. The Four Seasons Hotel offers The Ultimate Honeymoon Package that offers a rental car for your entire stay, a romantic private dinner on the beach (one night only) and breakfast daily.
Honeymooners can indulge their senses and unwind at sunset with a mai tai at one of many places to watch the sun set and enjoy an intimate first-class dinner overlooking the ocean at many of the island’s well-known and wonderful restaurants.
3. Bora Bora
Perfect white-sandy beaches surrounded by emerald waters could be easily being described as the center of the romantic universe or to those who love basking in the sun; heaven. To make this “center” true to the description, luxury resorts and spas strategically placed around the island with overwater bungalows, thatched roof villas, and fabled ambiance makes Bora Bora one of the most beautiful islands in the world.
These resorts have been welcoming couples for over 40 years and their unique and special services have been perfected and deemed unforgettable. From dusk to dawn, each resort has created their own blend of romantic experiences & these fabulous encounters that their guests can choose from to create a trip that’s memories last forever.
Located on an island in the lagoon of Bora Bora, Bora Bora Lagoon Resort invites newlyweds to reminisce in post-wedding privacy nestled in a bungalow perched on high stilts above the lagoon. The Canoe Breakfast brings the morning nosh to new levels as breakfast and fresh flowers are loaded into a canoe and delivered to your room.
While the resort offers many evening entertainment options and group activities, honeymooners can escape the crowds with a private barbecue for two on a secluded island. Guests can snorkel and relax while their personal chef prepares an island feast served on fine china and linens in the great outdoors.
This is just one of many ways couples find the resorts on Bora Bora amazing and each one works hard to come up with ways to ensure both a remarkable experience but one you will want to return to again and again.
Geographically speaking, Jamaica is an island of intense color and contrast offering miles of tropical beaches and bone-dry plains set amidst the misty Blue Mountains. Socially speaking the island is full of some of the most down to earth and fun people you will ever meet. Honeymooners may enjoy an entire vacation without ever leaving the sanctity & peace of their all-inclusive resort grounds, making this oasis feel like your very own.
Jamaica was the first destination, courtesy of Sandals Resorts, to cater to Honeymooners with the All Inclusive concept and it was a forerunner in the creation and popularity of destination weddings.
We know that many newlyweds that have stayed at the Half Moon Resort, which is nestled among 400 acres of tropical landscape on Jamaica’s northern coast, have fallen in love with this country and its amazing landscape.
This colonial-style resort has been welcoming distinguished guests for over 50 years and is ranked among the most popular and complete resorts in the Caribbean. With numerous suites and villas, a par 72 Robert Trent Jones Golf Course, multiple outdoor activities, a full service spa, 51 amazing swimming pools, a natural Dolphin Lagoon and much more, this world class resort is all you would need once you arrive on the beautiful island of Jamaica.
Although most resorts offer their guests everything they need, for those who want to experience a great new place and cultures, there is an experience unlike any other in the world waiting outside the resort. The island of Jamaica is the third largest island in the Caribbean and is just a little smaller than the state of Connecticut, offering plenty to do for nature lovers and enthusiasts.
The beaches on the north coast have been ranked as some of the best in the islands, and if remarkable diving and snorkeling is what you are looking for, then this is your spot.
Aside from the amazing opportunities to soak in the sun on traditional beaches with soft sand, you will also invariably drawn to the island beaches that are known as Jamaica’s prime bathing spots. Located in the tropical rock pools, many are at the bases of waterfalls found along the inland rivers and streams.
Once honeymooners find these locations they can relax in the cool, clear water while enjoying the scenery and listening to the sounds of the surrounding jungle. The locals share a spirituality that stands out and are known for their unique culture and their intoxicating music, colorful dress and tantalizing cuisine.
The streets of the cities are fast passed offering a range of things to see, smells and sounds that you will be sure to enjoy. We want visitors to enjoy the sights but always remain aware of their surroundings, but this is something to remember not just in Jamaica, but also in any foreign city in the world.
We think that the moment your feet feel the soft sand and your eyes take hold of the aqua blue waters, you will have no doubt you’re on one of the amazing islands of the Bahamas. It’s not just the comfortable ease or the immediate sense of relaxation that washes over you; it’s the moment you depart from everyday life and find that extraordinary place within yourself and have a trip of a lifetime.
You can enjoy the capital city of Nassau, on New Providence Island, which offers its guests a distinct blend of international glamor and tropical ease, and the freedom to do everything or even nothing at all. Or perhaps you want the memorable mix of historic charm, modern attractions, and ecological of the Grand Bahaman Island.
There’s truly something for everyone on any of the Islands of the Bahamas and the warm welcome you’ll receive is just the insurance you need to know you picked the best place to honeymoon.
These islands are full of small remote villages and the simple way of life where you’ll find some of the world’s most stunning beaches, dive sites, fishing sites and even golf. The Bahamas offers grand resorts like the popular Atlantis where you will no doubt find yourself feeling like a grand titan or the intimate resorts like the Graycliff, in Nassau where the romance and opulence will carry you away.
