Top 10 Honeymoon Destinations

December 19, 2011

They say the best part of getting married is the honeymoon. After the hectic time and the business of getting married, it’s time to take off with your loved one and just unwind, relax and get to know one another. This is a very special time and will stay with you for the rest of your life. Whether you have a honeymoon on the beach, in the mountains or out at sea, plan carefully so that its perfect, and make sure the honeymoon never gets over!

Indulge yourself on your honeymoon - holiday in style in the Maldives, a tiny country made up of 26 atolls that are strung out along the equator in the Indian Ocean. Powdery white sands, azure blue skies and aquamarine seas, tropical palms, sun and surf - the Maldives is an ideal destination to lie back, sip a coconut and tan a delightful bronze. Pamper yourself, or let others pamper you as you sit back and relax in one of the luxurious resorts or dance to live music and attend a beach barbecue. If a honeymoon spells action for you, test the surf on your surfboard or dive in the waters to admire the exotic marine life. Or just simply hold hands and walk on the soft white sand as the sun sets over the shimmering sea.

Bora Bora, French Polynesia
Bora Bora has the honour of being known as the most romantic island on planet earth. Set in the South Pacific between the Leeward and Society Islands it may seem a daunting task getting there – but once there, Bora Bora will cast its spell on you and you will fall prey to its charms. It will be love at first sight. Make no mistake about that! Lush tropical forests, powdery silver beaches that are gently lapped by the sea and the bluest, clearest water you will ever see, over water bungalows, turquoise lagoons, candlelight dinners, tequila sunsets and the utmost privacy. Perfect for a honeymoon!

Turtle Island, Fiji
Often described as the most romantic place on earth, a honeymoon on Turtle Island will stay with you long after you have left. Spend precious moments on this very private island. Have breakfast in bed in your bure, walk hand in hand on the golden beach, frolic and snorkel in the lagoon, sun bathe in the afternoon sun and when the day is over whisper sweet nothings to your beloved over have romantic candle-light dinner on the beach. This is the stuff dreams are made of – it will most definitely be a honeymoon you will remember!

Venice, Italy
Labeled the most romantic city in the world, Venice lives up to its reputation - and how. This is a city for lovers and an idyllic honeymoon spent here is sure to be a precursor to the rest of your life together. Stroll hand in hand along the cobbled alleyways, explore the piazzas, admire St Marks’ Basilica, take a gondola ride in the canals that snake through Venice and be serenaded by your gondolier. And don’t forget to steal a kiss with your loved one on the Bridge of Sighs!

Paris, France
Paris is the legendary city of love. What could be more romantic than taking a cruise down the Seine or having a quiet dinner on top of the Eiffel Tower with the city lights glimmering below? Check out the fabulous art works in the museums or sip a coffee at a street café, have a picnic on the lawns of the Jardin des Tuileries and later take in a cabaret show at the Moulin Rouge. There is so much to do and see in Paris and who better to do it with than your loved one. Your idyllic honeymoon in Paris will be etched in your minds forever, for you both to reminisce about in the years to come.

Caribbean Cruise
For the most relaxed honeymoon ever, consider a luxurious cruise in the sunny islands of the Caribbean. Unpack only once, sleep in as late as you want and indulge in a champagne breakfast in bed, explore magical destinations of the Caribbean Islands, laze by the pool, have a couple massage at the well equipped spa on board, dance cheek to cheek in the moonlight…the choices are endless on board and ashore. Have a momentous honeymoon that will stay with you for the rest of your lives.

Switzerland is the ideal destination for a honeymoon. Scenic landscapes, snow topped mountains, green rolling meadows and Alpine villages are sure to beguile honeymooners. Enjoy long walks or a boat trip on Lake Lucerne, ride up in a cable car to Mt. Titlis and behold sweeping vistas of the Alps. Switzerland is truly a romantic destination and just perfect for the best holiday of your lives - your honeymoon!

Langkawi, Malaysia
Time stands still in the island retreat of Langkawi . Swaying palm trees, miles of golden beaches, frothy waves lapping the shore and tropical sunshine are just some of the attributes that make Langkawi a perfect place for honeymooners. Sip a daiquiri by the pool, walk hand in hand on the beautiful beaches, and snorkel in clear blue waters and later watch the fabulous sunset together. Langkawi promises you a honeymoon you will always remember.

Bali, Indonesia
Rest assured that Bali is one of the best spots in the world for romance. Bali has more than its fair share of ancient temples, graceful dancers and dazzling beaches. Spend time at the glorious beach resorts of Sanur, Kuta and Nusa Dua, or explore the cultural hotspots. Shop for batik and other crafts at the local markets and indulge in water sports like sailing, snorkelling and windsurfing. Bali has everything you would want from a honeymoon destination - entertainment, culture, and natural beauty. Honeymoon in Bali and kick start your married life.

Goa, India
Laid back Goa is the perfect spot for a honeymoon. Stroll on the sands hand in hand, dance on the beach, and enjoy listening to a strumming guitar in the background. There is a lot to see and do: take a backwater cruise down the Mandovi river, or indulge in water sports - para sailing, wind surfing and water skiing, shop to your heart’s content at Anjuna, feast on prawn curry and rice at a beach shack, or you can simply laze by the pool in your hotel. You can set your own pace – do a lot or nothing at all! Sunny, merry Goa is the ideal place to start your life together.
