Few would argue that a honeymoon is one of the most memorable getaways we experience in our lifetime…especially if the destination is as wonderful as the person we’re traveling with!
Planning a honeymoon can be a daunting task – getting it “just right” can add a lot of pressure to an already stressful planning period. That’s why designing honeymoon getaways are some of our favorite trips to plan!
Some couples choose an adventurous honeymoon that takes them hiking Milford Sound in New Zealand or on safari in Africa, while others opt for a romantic stint through Italy or a sun-filled, beach-focused vacation in Hawaii. No matter what your preference, we can’t wait for your honeymoon to be all you’ve waited for it to be.
Here are just a few of our favorite honeymoon destinations:
Hawaii – With seven islands to design from, there’s something perfect waiting for you in Hawaii. Rich in culture, culinary delights, stunning landscapes and several of the top ranked beaches in the world, this island getaway is sure to be romantic, relaxing and memorable.
South Africa – This southern most country in Africa rivals most any place in the world when it comes to diversity in landscape, wildlife and history. Couples often gravitate to the beauty of Cape Town and its surrounding vineyards and then venture off to the northern part of the country to see the Big Five on safari in the bush (for a unique added touch, our partners at Lion Sands offer a Tree House experience where couples can sleep under the stars safely up in the canopy of a tree in the middle of the bush). This unique combination of experiences will never be forgotten.
Caribbean Cruise – For those couples who are looking for the ultimate in ease and some R&R in the sun, a Caribbean Cruise could be just what the doctor ordered. However, know that not all cruises are treated equal. We’ve tested cruise lines, ships and destinations all over the world and some are clearly better suited for honeymooners than others. We typically opt for a more intimate experience and often avoid large ships (with 3,000+ passengers) so your honeymoon truly serves as a getaway! (Celebrity, Silversea and other partners offer great choices for couples.)
South Pacific – There’s no doubt the South Pacific has a special gravitational pull when it comes to luring honeymooners. Afterall, the private bungalows, aqua blue water and remoteness of these beautiful islands offer many couples everything they could dream of after planning a wedding – a bit of peace and quiet. We’ve explored many of these island getaways and can recommend precisely which ones will fulfill your wishes. It might be Fiji, Tahiti, Bora Bora or a combination of these amazing South Pacific islands.
Belize – Few Caribbean destinations offer the unique blend of experiences as does Belize. Just south of Mexico in Central America, this small country is split between the mainland and Caribbean islands. That land split provides an amazing mix of rainforest and reef activities. Visit ancient Maya Ruins, explore caves by hiking or tubing through a river system, beach it on the white sands of the Caribbean or snorkel/dive the second largest barrier reef in the world.
