Most honeymoons are once-in-a-lifetime experiences, so you want to make sure you relish it. Whether you’re looking for boundless romance, a beautiful spot in the sand or exhilarating activities, these luxury honeymoon destinations won’t disappoint!
1. The Maldives
The Maldives is a collection of islands located in the Indian Ocean, and it’s about as romantic as a vacation can get. This quintessential honeymoon spot features your own private bungalow where you can enjoy each other over the crystal blue waters of the ocean.
If sipping fruity libations on the beach with your true love sounds like absolute bliss, you can’t overlook Antigua. Spend your days soaking up the immaculate beaches, and then once the sun sets, enjoy dinner on the sand and then partake in the best nightlife in the Caribbean.
In Brazil, you have your choice of upscale destinations. You can party and enjoy the diverse culture in Rio De Janeiro, or visit Sao Paolo for the big city vibes and delicious food. Or visit Fernando de Noronha, an archipelago located 200 miles off Brazil’s coast that will fulfill your dreams of visiting a deserted island.
Portugal is quite an under-rated European country, and undeservedly so. This country has much to offer in the way of romance. There are beautiful coastal towns, a thriving wine country, and stunning landscapes that will make you swoon! Head to quaint Comporta to bump elbows with the elite, such as Christian Louboutin and Phillipe Starck, who own vacation homes in this beautiful town.
5. St. Vincent
Thanks to the new airport completed in 2017, this unspoiled wonderland is now finally accessible to those who aren’t members of the royal family. Roam pristine Caribbean beaches hand in hand with your true love or snorkel the aqua waters to see tropical fish and beautiful coral reefs.
If you’d like to explore a more exotic destination, mysterious Bali is the perfect spot for the adventurous couple. Visit local temples, surf amazing waves and then relax with a sumptuous couple’s massage on the beach. We can’t guarantee you’ll want to go home.
The quaint, natural beauty of Grenada may have less pizzazz than some of the other contenders on this list, but the quiet beauty of this island will put the spotlight on your marriage and not your surroundings. Wake up to the exquisite cerulean blue view of the ocean off your balcony and enjoy the different colors of sand as you explore the various beaches.
8. Crete, Greece
If you want your honeymoon to be heaven on Earth, look no further than Crete. The largest of the Greek islands is still going strong despite the economic downturn of the country as a whole. There are a plethora of luxury hotels that ooze opulence with their delectable cuisine, world-class spa treatments, and adventurous excursions.
9. Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica
Spend your first weeks as a married couple marveling at the rich green jungles juxtaposed by the vivid blue ocean when you stay in Osa, Costa Rica. You’ll feel as though you’re on the set of a movie with wildlife all around you, and you have your choice from an abundance of exciting activities.
