As more people know, since traveling has been an essential part of our lives, a honeymoon is one of the most crucial times to spend in our life with a lovely one. Although nowadays, many couples seek an affordable, complete trip, some others are in search of something which could be called a “honeymoon” at 100%. It means going on a trip to luxury destinations that could allow couples to enjoy every comfort they need, also trying to save their budget. So, let’s start quickly!
The Maldives archipelago composed of many coral islands surrounded by the Indian Ocean and precisely by warm and crystalline water whose primary economic resource is tourism. Many islands are real tourist resorts with all the comforts: swimming pools, golf courses, water parks, worthy of the top honeymoon spots.
BEST TIME TO GO: The climate of the Maldives is monsoonal. The dry monsoon is established from December to April and is characterized by weak and infrequent rains, while wet from May to November, brings more frequent torrential downpours.
It is hot all year round, and the best time for a trip is during the dry season. Even better is to plan your trip between February and March when the rains are rarer and of low intensity and duration. Many hotels have high prices, due to the prestige of the destination.
BEAUTIFUL ACTIVITIES: The depths of the Maldives hide a rainbow of colors, including corals and colorful fish that will allow you to go snorkeling or scuba diving as a couple. However, the watchword of the honeymoon must be “relax” on the white beaches bathed in the heavenly water waiting to admire incredible sunsets from the room of a luxurious resort. I also recommend a walk through the picturesque streets of the capital Malè.
Venice! The name says it all, a symbol of luxury and refinement, this city is one of the most beautiful cities of art in Italy, famous throughout the world for its colorful Carnival. Walking along the bridges connecting the typical houses built on the many islets will be a unique experience.
BEST TIME TO GO: The climate of Venice is moderately continental with cold and wet winters and hot and sultry summer, but the Adriatic Sea slightly attenuates it. The best times to visit Venice are the mid-seasons, from mid-April to mid-June and in September, although there may be rainy days in both periods. The city is well connected with very cheap flights and the center, although expensive, is full of beautiful and refined hotels.
BEAUTIFUL ACTIVITIES: Venice is considered one of the cities of love par excellence, one of the top honeymoon spots. You certainly can’t miss a romantic gondola ride with your groom: going along the channels led by the characteristic gondoliers will be a fantastic experience. Take a tour by land to discover the beautiful Cathedral of Piazza San Marco and finally a romantic excursion in the surrounding vineyards to taste some excellent Italian wine.
Santa Lucia is a Caribbean island that hosts two particular volcanic formations called Pitons. On its marvelous coast, we find black and white sand beaches, a colorful coral reef, fishing villages, and luxury resorts. Inland, however, there is the rainforest with paths leading to waterfalls.
BEST TIME TO GO: The climate is tropical, warm all year round, with a relatively calm and dry season from January to mid-April and a hot, muggy and rainy season from mid-June to November. The best time to go is undoubtedly from January to April because it is drier. Since tourism is not yet a systematic source of income, you can find luxury resorts at very cheap prices.
BEAUTIFUL ACTIVITIES: Relax in Reduit Beach, one of the most beautiful and famous beaches, made of white sand overlooking a turquoise bay bathed by the sea. Stop by a local bar or enjoy evening entertainments, as well as at Honeymoon Beach with soft white sand surrounded by tall palm trees. It is surrounded by rolling hills, and the sea that bathes this beautiful bay is crystal-clear. If you are a nature lover, we recommend getting to Toraille Falls, one of the largest waterfalls on the island. It ends in a natural pool where you can take a relaxing bath, and the water that flows on gives you the feeling of being in a hot tub!
Why don’t you go to Santorini at least once in your life? There are no other similar islands in the Mediterranean and around the world. The panorama of the caldera, the volcanic crater, the red-brown rocks, black, sprinkled with gray pumice, the deep blue sea, the villages bordering the cliff make it a luxury honeymoon destination.
BEST TIME TO GO: The best times to visit Santorini are spring, from April to early June, and the beginning of autumn. Consider that in September and early October, temperatures are still right, and swimming in the sea is almost guaranteed. From mid-June to the end of August, hotel prices soar, and it becomes necessary to book well in advance.
BEAUTIFUL ACTIVITIES: The most suggestive area of Santorini, where everyone wants to stay, is, of course, the crest of the caldera. From this place, you can enjoy breathtaking views and the best sunsets, especially from Fira and Oia. You can’t miss the Akrotiri, one of the most important archaeological sites of the Aegean Sea. Its most famous beach is Red Beach, an expanse of reddish sand bordered by imposing cliffs of a reddish color. Perissa and Kamari beaches are much more youthful.
Saint Kitts and Nevis
It is an archipelago of small dimensions, located in the Lesser Antilles. Of volcanic origin, the islands have large central peaks covered by jungle and steep slopes leading to uninhabited beaches. The vast majority of the population lives near the sea, where museums, ancient inns, sugar plantations, and seventeenth-century churches follow one another.
BEST TIME TO GO: Thanks to the fabulous weather, it is possible to tan and take long baths almost all year round. Both islands are very luxurious and are not too expensive.
BEAUTIFUL ACTIVITIES: On the black and gray sand beaches of Saint Kitts and Nevis, it is pleasant to do any activity: from picnics to walks, to sports.
The place for snorkeling is undoubtedly the White House Bay, located in the southeastern part of Saint Kitts. Take a diving tour at Sandy Point Bay, where corals, sponges, and fish in impressive quantities and varieties. Trekking on foot and by mountain bike, along inland trails or through rainforests, are also very rewarding.
The island of Bali is located in the archipelago of the Little Sonda islands, in the southern part of Indonesia. A true earthly paradise, loved by tourists from all over the world: the charm of Bali cannot fail to conquer anyone who sets foot on it. From the brightly colored lakes, set between the rock of the mountains and the volcanoes, to the extensive terraces cultivated with rice, with thick patches of vegetation that hide villages and temples.
BEST TIME TO GO: Bali has a typical tropical climate, with drier months in summer and periods characterized by heavy rainfall, especially in the autumn period. The best time to visit Bali is from June to September when temperatures are high, but rain and humidity are at their lowest.
BEAUTIFUL ACTIVITIES: Bali is full of luxury resorts for a perfect wedding gateway overlooking the beaches of fine white sand. One of the main attractions of the island is visiting Buddhist and Hindu temples scattered throughout the territory. The Tanah Lot Temple is one of the most characteristics of Bali, also because it’s located in the middle of the sea.
The island is full of incredible natural places, parks, terraced gardens, and rice fields to visit. The Monkey Forest is one of these places, like the Ricefields of Tegallalang that offers a splendid panorama, of very green terraced fields built on the hills. And finally, a lot of seas where you can snorkel and admire lots of colorful fish.
For Africa lovers, I recommend Nairobi, the capital of Kenya. It is a cosmopolitan, lively, exciting city: a perfect mix of jungle and city. A top honeymoon spot.
BEST TIME TO GO: There are two wet seasons: indicatively from March to May the big rains and from October to December the small rains. The hottest season is from January to April, the best time to go there.
BEAUTIFUL ACTIVITIES: Among the things to see in Nairobi are above all national parks and parks dedicated to animals, the nation is the destination for lovers of wild nature. A safari in the Nairobi National Park is the first thing to do as soon as you arrive in the city, discovering zebras, giraffes, and lions.
The Nairobi Safari Walk is the alternative to the classic 4×4 safari. A walking safari will take you around the rich vegetation and the most diverse animal species. Still, on the subject of nature, we move from national parks and citizens to a beautiful green Ngong Hills from which it will be possible to see breathtaking sunsets. And finally, why not take a nice walk in the nearby Karura Forest? So if you are a couple of lovers of uncontaminated nature, Nairobi is for you.
For lovers of paradisiacal landscapes with warm sea and coconut palms, how can we not talk about Hawaii? A honeymoon there is everyone’s dream, of course, a holiday there is, on average expensive. However, if your travel is well-organized and feasible in time, it is worth it. Hawaii is located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and can be easily reached with low-cost, but comfortable flights.
BEST TIME TO GO: Hawaii has a tropical climate, with mild temperatures that fluctuate little during the year. The warmest and driest season runs from June to October, while the most refreshing season from December to March. The best time to visit Hawaii is from May to October; temperatures are high, and the heat is never unbearable.
BEAUTIFUL ACTIVITIES: Among the main things to do and see, we indeed visit Oahu, where the famous Waikiki is located. Relax at sunset with your sweetheart on a beautiful hammock, after having danced a bit the typical Hawaiian dances that you see in the movies, or to enjoy a delicious barbecue on the beach.
For adventurers, don’t miss the excursion of the wild Kauai, or for the bravest, the slopes of the majestic Kilauea volcano. Finally, if you love water sports, Hawaii is the surfing capital of the world, why not try surfing the perfect North Shore waves?
Seychelles is an archipelago of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean. They are a true paradise and a perfect destination for a luxury honeymoon with all the comforts. Here you will find many beaches, lush nature, exotic flora and fauna, and spectacular coral reefs. Start the journey from the largest island of Mahé, a bike that is well connected to all the others.
BEST TIME TO GO: The climate of Seychelles is tropical, warm all year round, with a wet and rainy season from December to March and a dry and more refreshing season from June to September. The latter is the best time to organize your honeymoon, although October and November are also excellent, given the lower prices of the beautiful hotels.
BEAUTIFUL ACTIVITIES: The Seychelles islands are the ideal destination for those who are on a quiet and romantic holiday, without giving up that desire for adventure rather than discovering unspoiled nature. It is on the island of Aldabra, in fact, a UNESCO heritage, that it will be possible to admire the majestic giant tortoises.
Visit Fregate, the island of privacy par excellence with its colorful coral reef and the famous VIP hotels. Moving on to the larger islands, try the beautiful Mahé beaches where you can snorkel or sail. And if you are a couple of explorers, Praslin and the wild La Digue do just for you. Here nature reigns supreme, thanks to birdwatching, we saw colorful birds after beautiful trekking or hiking.
New York, USA
And finally, the magical New York. The Big Apple is one of the most famous cities in the world, thanks to its modernity and multiculturalism. Its high skyscrapers that form a fantastic skyline and its illuminated streets are the setting for a top luxury honeymoon.
BEST TIME TO GO: The climate of New York is continental. New York can be visited throughout the year. The city is covered by a thick blanket of snow during the winter months, while it has a different charm during the warmer months.
The best time for a trip there is undoubtedly late spring during May and June, and autumn, in September and October. In general, downtown hotels, especially on skyscrapers, are very expensive, but the experience is truly fantastic.
BEAUTIFUL ACTIVITIES: You will never stop discovering different angles of New York. However, the symbols not to be missed are first of all the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the Bronx. A must-see is the MOMA and the Guggenheim, rich in works of art of international renown. Then, two steps through the somewhat more modern history of China Town and Little Italy. Visits to the Empire State Building, Central Park, Broadway, the artificial lights of Times Square, Wall Street, and the Rockefeller and the World Trade Centers. Nevertheless, the best thing about this luxury honeymoon is the chance to live like a New Yorker and tour the countless streets of the city.
