Top 5 luxury places to honeymoon
Your honeymoon could be your ultimate vacation as a couple. After the stressful phase of wedding preparations, this might be your first chance to spend quality time away from the crowd. Consider this an opportunity to tick one box off your travel bucket list, and splurge on the most stunning views, best-tasting food, and exquisite activities.
Top 5 luxury places to honeymoon
Without further ado, here are the top five luxury places you want to celebrate your honeymoon:
1. Cancun, Mexico
Cancun is best known for its white beaches, luxury resorts, and trendy nightlife. It is located on the Yucatan Peninsula just beside the Caribbean Sea. Visit the El Rey or El Templo del Alacran to get a peek of the ruins of the ancient Mayan civilisation. Don’t miss Xcaret, the main archaeological park in Mexico. Don’t forget to visit the underwater museum as well!
2. Botswana, Africa
Any adventurous couple will certainly enjoy a romantic honeymoon safari in Africa. Botswana’s “high value, low volume tourism” allows couples to enjoy exclusive tailor-made safari experiences like having private dinners on a floating deck and a mokoro (dug-out canoe) trip. Sleep under the stars on a deserted island, and encounter a variety of wildlife and game-viewing options.
3. Lombok, Indonesia
Lombok is just a ferry ride away from the tourist-heavy Bali. An outdoor-themed honeymoon is perfect here, as you and your partner can enjoy snorkeling, diving, and trekking up the summit of the famous active volcano Mount Rinjani.
Experience the stunning view of the crater where an azure lake awaits. Lombok is serene, yet a wide range of clubs and venues with live music are available at Gili Trawangan.
Nothing spells luxury more than the city-state of Singapore. This modern city is packed with luxury hotels and world-class shopping malls. Plunge in the Marina Bay Sands’ 55th-floor sky pool and enjoy the overlooking view of Singapore.
After that, head straight to Orchard road to shop for world-famous labels like Louis Vuitton and Chanel. Another unique experience awaits at the Singapore Flyer, Asia’s largest observation wheel, where you can have a private dinner with an in-flight host amid the magnificent skyline views.
Santorini is synonymous to its iconic whitewashed houses nestled on a cliff facing the Aegean Sea. With gorgeous views out of the popular villas in Santorini and thanks to its postcard-pretty beaches, the jewel of the Greek Isles, is growing its reputation as a “honeymoon destination” worldwide.
One of the most famous spots in Santorini is Amoudi Bay in Oia. Here, you can catch the breathtaking sunset from the Byzantine castle ruins and enjoy a magical moment with your spouse. Continue the romantic experience by visiting Ancient Thera, an antique city on the Messa Vouno Mountain on Santorini. This spot provides a stunning view of Perissa and Kamari Beach.
Whether you choose to drench in the beach, trek up the mountains, visit historical sites, or indulge in shopping, your honeymoon experience is ultimately about enjoying one another’s company. Invest in making this experience ultra-special; a little luxury won’t break the bank if you have saved and planned for your trip. Start planning for that dream honeymoon today.
