When you’re planning your big day, one of the most fun parts is thinking about the honeymoon. While more and more people aren’t necessarily taking their honeymoon immediately after the wedding, it is still something that is exciting and fun to look forward to when the day does come. After all of the stresses that come with organising a wedding, you deserve the time as a couple to completely switch off and enjoy married life.
Planning holidays is one of my favourite things to do generally, and I’ve already started to have a think about where we could be a good option for us next year. We haven’t fully decided whether we’ll be going straight after the wedding or to do a mini-moon instead and save throughout the year to go at Christmas.
Seen as you’ll only be going on your honeymoon once in your life, it’s your excuse to splurge a little. While its completely up to the couple how they wish to spend the time, the majority usually go for a little bit of luxury, and with some incredible places to see, the world is your oyster.
Today I’ve rounded up some picture-perfect honeymoon destinations.
1. Bali, Indonesia
Bali has been on my list for as long as I can remember. It looks like the perfect place for a honeymoon, and everyone I’ve spoken to who has been only has great things to say.
Despite it being quite a long flight from the UK, Bali is growing in popularity with honeymooners and it’s easy to see why. There are some really stunning resorts to choose from, as well as good weather basically all year round. There are water sports, snorkelling, beautiful beaches, that make it a picture-perfect honeymoon destination.
2. Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka just sounds like the epitome of a tropical destination and somewhere perfect for honeymooners. It’s sometimes used as a stopover point for those going to The Maldives but is a great choice of destination in its own right.
Sri Lanka is known for its rich culture, wildlife, nature, and tea plantations: If you wanted to do something a little bit different whilst relaxing in luxury you could get hands on and help out at an animal sanctuary.
3. Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Dubai is a place that is really unlike any other. It might not be somewhere you’d consider for your honeymoon, but you’re guaranteed lovely weather, and there is so much to do.
If you want to be a bit more active on your honeymoon, you can go quad biking in the desert, skydive over the palm or hit up one of the waterparks as well as visiting the tallest building in the world.
4. St. Lucia, Caribbean
St. Lucia is just one of the many stunning islands in the Caribbean. It has white sand beaches, clear waters, and the ultimate in luxury. All of the Caribbean islands are a little different, though, with different things to offer.
If heading that way appeals, then you could think about a Caribbean cruise to see more than one place. There are many different ones to choose from but doing your research is my best piece of advice – whatever floats your boat (pun intended). Click here to find out more.
5. Orlando, Florida
If the two of you are adrenaline junkies, then heading off the Orlando can be a great idea, and what better place to pay a tribute to your childhood days.
There are so many hotels to choose from, but the ultimate in luxury would be the Disney World hotel, on-site at the park. You can even hire out Cinderella’s’ castle for a night if your budget is out of this world, and what better way to feel like a princess?!
Last but not least is the ultimate in luxurious holiday destinations – Mauritius: I don’t think there’s a person on this earth who wouldn’t like to visit paradise.
The group of idllyic islands that are dotted around the Indian Ocean and are a great place to relax and totally switch off. There are pristine beaches and cute little huts that are out on the water to stay in.
