Your honeymoon is without a doubt the most intimate, extravagant vacation you take, at least to some. We know you plan to continue traveling throughout your marriage, but doing so with children can be quite difficult. So we cannot stress it enough that you should pick a place (or places) that you and your significant other are dying to see. This trip is a once in a lifetime opportunity where you can finally leave all the stress from wedding planning behind and truly focus on your future. Just imagine unwinding on a beach with your hubby or channeling your adventurous side and hiking up a mountain. These are memories that will last forever, so you certainly don’t want to wish you had chosen somewhere better twenty years from now. Here’s our 10 favorite destinations to experience with the love of your life.
Amalfi Coast, Italy
What a picturesque landscape of villages and stairways filled with colorful buildings that overlook the gorgeous blue waters. It’s no wonder Italy remains among the top of so many travel bucket lists. With several beaches, you have many options that will never disappoint. You can even rent a speedboat for the day and sail along the crystalline waters. To really capture the luxury, consider staying at GH Convento di Amalfi, a five-star hotel with free WiFi located on the coast.
Bula! It’s the universal way of saying welcome or hello in Fiji, which is always followed by a warm smile. Speaking of warm, this lovely island has a tropical climate of up to 86 degrees year round. That’s right, you’ll never have to worry about planning for a specific time, because it’s ALWAYS beautiful including the water temperature. Perfect for swimming in those crystal blue waters! While this may seem too hot, the delicate winds keep tourists cool, even when they’re being active. Naisoso Island Resort Villas are a wonderful place to stay for your trip as it is located close to the beach and even has a spa.
Taking a honeymoon to Australia is more than likely not what initially comes to mind when you start planning, but there is so much to do. From adventures to arts, the beach to shopping, the culture to nature, and beyond more! Sydney offers you the populated city and the beautiful beach like a two-for-one deal. Our winter months here in the US are the opposite from those in Australia. While we endure the snow, they soak up the sun, which is why you should avoid traveling in December or January. Opt for late September to early December or February to April to stray from large crowds. To stay within close proximity to many different activities, take a look at Radisson Blu Plaza located in the city!
We know for sure that you’ve heard of this insanely gorgeous island. If you follow one of our favorite brides-to-be Tammy Hembrow on instagram, you’re probably aware that this is her favorite destination. She’s posted amazing shots from taking trips here with her hunny, as well as her two precious children. You must consider staying in one of these bungalows located in the water along the island that offer more than just romantic views. Check out the many commodities at The Four Seasons, Bora Bora Resort.
Ahh, Paris.. known as the capital of France and the home of the one and only Eiffel Tower. The one in Vegas just doesn’t do the original justice. You and your hubby will feel as if you’ve fallen all over again while visiting the home of memorable arts, intricate architecture and some of the world’s most excellent restaurants. Did you know you could dine inside of the Eiffel Tower? Let’s not forget about all the shopping you can do. There really is no bad time to ever visit this astounding city, especially since snow is a rare occurrence. The Mandarin Oriental is ranked one of the highest among our favorite stylish, luxurious hotels to stay in the city of romance.
They don’t call it ‘One Big Happy Island’ for no reason! We can’t even count the amount of times we have gotten the suggestion from both friends and family to visit Aruba! The island truly offers an amazing experiences with excellent food, breathtaking beaches and casinos. Cha Ching! Don’t forget to plan some of the awesome excursions like off-roading, zip lining, snorkeling and cave exploring. For a more laidback day, plop down on the beach or check out some of the shops and bars. The weather is consistently beautiful year round, so there’s never a wrong time to visit. If you thought the bungalows over the water in Bora Bora were cool, check out these Aruba Ocean Villas. Get this, they are the only overwater villas Aruba has to offer in the small town of Savaneta. Talk about a unique spot!
London, United Kingdom
When we hear of London, we think of many things like Big Ben, the London Eye, Buckingham Palace…the list could go on forever. Has anyone ever thought to honeymoon there? Sure, it doesn’t offer scenic beaches, but that’s not everyone’s preference. Think about the art and the history that you can indulge in! After all, it is one of the world’s most visited cities. To stay close to the most touristy locations, check out St. Martin’s Lane Hotel!
If you liked the Amalfi Coast, you will absolutely have a hard time picking between there and the indescribable Santorini. (Do both!) The white washed buildings paired with the volcanic-sand beaches and insanely colorful sunsets make this getaway almost impossible to turn down. It’s no wonder 1.5 million tourists visit annually. Why not stay at the Honeymoon Petra Villas dedicated to honeymooners worldwide? They even offer a honeymoon package with amazing perks and free buffet breakfasts to all guests every morning!
Entering Marrakech is like entering a universe filled with interesting spices, jewelry, snake charmers, hidden palaces, and certainly entertainment. It offers both characteristics of Africa, where it’s located, and Europe because of its close proximity. The nightlife compares to no other with acrobats, musicians, fortune tellers, dancing cobras, and so many other things you wouldn’t find anywhere else. Visit during the spring for guaranteed blue skies. You must be intrigued. So we suggest that you check out Riad Nashira, a chic, romantic hotel located in the midst of all the action.
Would you take a look at all this brilliant architecture and colorful mosaic tiles? In Barcelona you can have a combination of the city, lively beaches, and soaring mountains. The culture is undeniably visible throughout the entire city and it will only unfold even more while sightseeing. We wish we could list all the things to do in Barcelona, but the list would go on forever. Instead, we’ll leave it up to you. However, we’ll help you with one thing; one of our favorite places to stay is the Renaissance Hotel.
Trust us, there’s much more where that came from! You’ll just have to stay tuned for next time, lovelies!
