After all the excitement of your wedding day, there’s still your honeymoon to look forward to. But your honeymoon is more than just a special occasion or a trip overseas. It’s a celebration of your marriage to the person you love most in the world. It’s also the perfect time to splash out on a getaway that’s once-in-a-lifetime. On your honeymoon, you’ll make memories that mark the beginning of your married lives together. Why not do that in a place that ticks every single luxury box possible? Of course, not everyone has the same taste in travel destinations, which is why we’ve compiled this list of unforgettable
honeymoon destinations that are worth every cent.
Beautiful Bora Bora
Picture the ultimate island getaway—white sand beaches, crystal clear ocean waters, tropical vegetation, luxury accommodation, you name it. All this and more await newlyweds who travel to Bora Bora.
And if you’re going to go big, go with the Four Seasons Resort. This 5-star island getaway in French Polynesia lets you celebrate your marriage in style while soaking up the tropical sunshine and luxuriating in paradise. They offer beachfront accommodation in extravagant villas that boast views of the pristine ocean and the picturesque Mount Otemanu.
The real prize for honeymooners, however, lies in the over-water bungalows that extend outwards from the beach. In these magnificent, standalone huts, you can expect not only every amenity you could wish for but your own ocean plunge pool and a semi-glass-bottomed floor that provides a crystal-clear view of the ocean life below your feet.
In addition to 5-star accommodation, the Four Seasons Resort in Bora Bora offers a plethora of both relaxing and exhilarating activities for you and your new spouse to enjoy. Treat yourselves to glorious views while being pampered in the Te Mahana spa, go on guided ocean life encounters with trained marine biologists, take in the nautical splendor on snorkeling safaris, and indulge in personalized dinners prepared by some of the world’s best chefs.
Stunning Sabi Sands, South Africa
If you’re looking for a once-in-a-lifetime safari experience, you can’t go wrong with the Lion Sands Game Reserve in Mpumalanga, South Africa.
The luxury accommodation that dots the massive expanse of this 10 000-acre reserve is designed to get you as close to nature as is safely possible. All while still giving you the 5-star experience you crave.
From treehouse villas to sleek private chalets, you can get up close and personal with the beautiful vistas of the South African wilderness, be lulled to sleep by the symphony of sounds emanating from one of the richest ecosystems on the continent, and enjoy a standard of luxury unmatched by any other safari park.
The staff of expert safari guides will take you on open Jeep game drives where you will get the opportunity to feast your eyes on lions, leopards, elephants, hyenas, hippos, giraffes, and hundreds of other indigenous species in their natural habitat.
Marvellous Megève, France
If a winter wonderland ski vacation is more your style, then look no further than Les Fermes De Marie. This gorgeous, idyllic hotel is built entirely from salvaged timbers and features picturesque, cozy, winter log cabins. It’s the kind of place you would expect to encounter debonair celebrities and renowned scholars sipping on hot-buttered rum and eggnog. Picture wall-to-wall comfy leather furniture, expertly crafted adornments, animal skin carpets, roaring fireplaces, and breathtaking views of the Alps.
When you’re not out on the slopes, explore the romantic neighboring town of Megève, enjoy fine French cuisine, take a dip in the heated pool, and spend some one-on-one quality time with your partner in luxurious cabin suites that will never leave you wanting for comfort.
If you’re not comfortable on skis, there are plenty of other outdoor and indoor activities to enjoy. Learn your way around a French kitchen with the resident chef, take in the unparalleled beauty of the Alps from a private helicopter, indulge your inner child on their sledding courses, and get your adrenaline pumping with some of the best hang-gliding in the world.
Breathtaking Bali, Indonesia
For the more spiritually inclined, the COMO Shambhala Estate in Bali is the ultimate honeymoon getaway. Not only is it incredibly romantic, but it’s also a haven for those who want to enjoy luxury in a mindful and healthy way.
