You’ve planned the perfect wedding. What’s the icing on the cake? Why, an amazing honeymoon, of course!
The honeymoon is the most significant vacation a couple will take. After the stress of wedding planning, however, making a decision on an equally stunning honeymoon destination can be tiresome. Don’t fret, though. Here we have a list of 10 best and most amazing honeymoon destinations to help you narrow down the choices.
1. Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort, St. Lucia
Perfect for: couples who want scenic views
Arguably the best setting in the Caribbean, Sugar Beach boasts of 59 villas dotting the hillside between the Piton Peaks. This is a UNESCO territory and you get the best of two worlds- beautiful golden beaches and captivating forests and mountains.
Each villa has a terrace and a pool, cocoon-like four-poster bed and even a butler. There are tree house treatment rooms and a great late-night lounge.
2. NIYAMA, Maldives
Perfect for: couples who don’t want to be bored
Maldives has white sand beaches and turquoise waters. It’s practically the most restful place on Earth. But at NIYAMA, you can forget about resting. The Subsix nightclub comes alive when the sun goes down and you can watch rays and reef sharks while you dance at 6 meters below sea level. Maldives offers 24 hours of entertainment. If you want a honeymoon that’s an extension of your wedding party, this is the place to go.
3. Loisaba, Kenya
Perfect for: couples who love nature
Loisaba lies on top of a rocky escarpment. Each suite has a 4-poster bed and timbered decks. The view opens to the plains and to the mesmerizing Mount Kenya. But if you want to really experience nature, go for a night on a handcrafted Koija star bed. The bed is elevated to an open-air platform and you can spend the night gazing at the stars before dozing off. There are also evening safaris on offer.
4. Taj Lake Palace, India
Best for: couples who want to experience the exotic and the mystical
The Taj Lake Palace is a 250-year-old white marble building. It appears to majestically float in the middle of Lake Pichola. To get there, you have to take a boat across the lake. The whole place is filled with ornate and antique furniture and hand-painted murals. Enjoy Indian cuisine al fresco or at a pontoon for two, by candlelight!
5. Cappadocia, Turkey
Perfect for: the adventurous couple
Turkey offers plenty of exploration activities. You can go by foot or by car, but the best way is to wake up early and take a hot air balloon ride. You’ll love seeing the country’s jagged landscape and fantastic dwellings from the sky. You can also explore Uchisar Castle and watch the sunset from the tallest fairy chimney in the area.
Perfect for: laidback couples
Brazil is more famous for places like the Copacobana and Ipanema. But what many people overlook is the country is also home to remote stretches of coastlines where it’s pretty much just you and the locals. Try the Pousada Picinguaba, a sleepy fishing village where the only other tourists you’ll meet are fellow hotel guests.
7. Marrakech, Morocco
Perfect for: extending the romance
It’s one of the most romantic places on Earth. Marrakech, Morocco, has Arabian spices and rose petals, lanterns and Gwana music. Stop for mint tea, bargain at the souqs (an open-air marketplace), and watch snake charmers at the central square. It’s a seductive location that’s perfect for extending the romantic feels before real-life rears back its ugly head.
Honeymoons are the perfect way to cap a successful union. Finding the perfect destination is just the thing everybody needs to start off the rest of their married life. And remember, you can also go on a second or third honeymoon if you want to rekindle the spark in your marriage.
