Whether you’re looking for an exotic location with romantic secluded beaches, a city break with plenty of culture, or an all-action adventure holiday to get the adrenaline pumping, we give our take on the top five honeymoon destinations from around the world.
- Bora Bora, French Polynesia
With its tranquil turquoise lagoon and romantic panoramic views of the mountains, Bora Bora is perhaps the most breathtaking of all the South Pacific isles. It’s no surprise that it has become a top honeymoon destination, as it’s the stuff dreams are made of. The US News and World Report has voted Bora Bora one of the best islands in the world, thanks to attractions such as its colourful coral reef teeming with exotic marine life, the majestic Mount Otemanu, guided tours of black pearl and vanilla bean farms, secluded beaches and chartered helicopter tours.
- Savannah, Georgia
When you’re looking for romance combined with culture, Savannah (the oldest city in Georgia) is hard to beat. Established in 1733, the city boasts a slow-paced serenity which transports you back in time to a quieter, calmer era – the perfect way to de-stress after planning your wedding! Cosy inns and restaurants offering top cuisine flourish in the historic squares, where honeymooners can also enjoy a nostalgic horse-drawn carriage tour, taking in the cobbled streets, serene parks and significant historic buildings along the way.
- Koh Tao, Thailand
If your idea of a top honeymoon is spending time relaxing on one of the most romantic beaches in the world, Koh Tao is the place to be – there are around 12 serene beaches where you can enjoy as much serenity and seclusion as you need. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can rent a motorbike and explore the beaches until you find your favourite. Among the attractions are an adults-only resort, where you can rent a luxury bamboo hut for two which comes complete with a balcony overlooking the ocean, a private swimming pool and your own heated hot-tub. Top activities include scuba diving among the vibrant marine life.
- Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
In terms of natural beauty, the Galápagos Islands are hard to beat. Offering a unique wildlife experience, where hundreds of species of animals and plants flourish (many of them unique to this stunning location), there’s even a giant tortoise reserve on Santa Cruz. If you enjoy adventure and a taste of the great outdoors, book an exploration package holiday to experience all aspects of the islands’ beauty and wildlife. Charter a private yacht to go island-hopping, or book a scuba diving trip to see the exotic underwater landscapes close-up. Swim with sea lions, explore the Galapagos Safari Camp, book a rainforest trip, a land or diving safari, or take a luxury catamaran cruise and enjoy the picturesque colonial cities, indigenous culture and fascinating Inca sites.
- Rainforest Spa, St Lucia
If your idea of a romantic dream honeymoon is taking a couples’ spa break, then the Rainforest Spa at Sugar Beach is the place to be. Located in beautiful St Lucia and nestling among mature and ancient trees, the Rainforest Spa puts the focus firmly on using local, natural ingredients. The therapists have an amazing knowledge of the powers of natural remedies, such as using bananas to help smooth away wrinkles, or coconuts for exfoliating and brightening up tired skin. There’s an exclusive range of couples’ treatments, such as the Sulphur Seduction – a unique experience bathing in the warm waters of St Lucia’s volcanic sulphur springs – or the Time for Two Cabana Massage, which concludes with the Watsu pool experience.
