The ultimate honeymoon fantasy, Bora Bora is part of the archipelago of French Polynesia and is always quoted as one of the most romantic destinations in the world.
Crystal clear seas and not a cloud in sight, this heaven on earth is definitely somewhere you must visit with the love of your life. It was even voted one of the best islands to visit by US News recently.
The most luxurious places to stay are actually on their own private islands, known as Motus. Most hotels have stunning overwater villas, with uninterrupted views of the crystal clear water.
There are a few top hotels to choose from, but perhaps the best known is the Conrad. Guests are transported to their room via golf cart, and the resort has become a favorite among the Kardashians.
There’s no doubt that Fiji is one of the most beautiful places in the world; a tropical haven that’s filled with coconut palm trees, sugar white beaches and turquoise blue lagoons.
Many of Fiji’s hotels sit side by side, but the Shangri La sits on its own private island. This is a very special resort because you can swim straight off the beach, and the hotel runs daily boat shuttles to the reef for snorkelling.
Or, protected by a spanning coral reef, the InterContinental on Viti Levu is also worth splashing out for. This five-star resort has everything you could want in a resort. Choose a room on the beachfront because there’s nothing like waking up to the sound and sight of the ocean.
St. Lucia is one of the gems of the Caribbean, with gorgeous beaches, lush rain-forests, and a vibrant local culture. But what makes it a stand out honeymoon destination are the range of spectacular hotels.
If a room with a view is your priority, Jade Mountain Resort is worth your attention. Upgraded rooms here feature private infinity pools overlooking the surrounding jungles of Bouton and Mamin.
This tropical nation located in the Indian Ocean is made up of over 1,000 coral islands and 26 ring-shaped atolls, and it’s one of the top places to travel for experiences with exceptional underwater life.
Obviously one of the main reasons why people choose the Maldives is the beautiful white beaches and crystal-clear water. But for the much more adventurous you can scuba dive into the deep depths of the sea or take a day trip to somewhere a little more deserted.
Most resorts have options such as snorkeling, kayaking, jetskiing, kitesurfing, parasailing, windsurfing, waterskiing, sailing, stand-up paddleboarding, surfing, and more.
Explore the hustle and bustle of one of Italy’s most romantic cities by taking your honeymoon to Europe.
Florence may not have beaches or year round clear skies, but it does have incredible food and culture, and is well known throughout Europe as the city of love.
You can view some of the greatest masters of the Renaissance here, walk hand in hand admiring ancient architecture, indulge in authentic Italian pizza, or stay tangled between the sheets with a hotel room view that overlooks Florence’s incredible terraces rooftops.
European cities are often discarded as honeymoon destinations, but what people forget is this Greek hidden gem.
From cobblestone streets to stark white homes with colorful blue domes, straight from the front of a postcard, any couple would have the time of their life spending their special honeymoon here.
It’s a completely walkable island, and takes roughly 30 minutes to walk from end to end. Oia is the place to be if you’re hoping to take in one of those world famous sunsets. But keep in mind that this is not exactly a secret, and tourists flood the narrow streets every night.
You may have a more private moment at sunset by booking a villa with a hot tub that overlooks the ocean.
As tropical getaways go, you can’t beat a vacation to Hawaii. As a dream destination with a universal appeal, it’s easy to see why the islands have become synonymous with paradise.
If you’re only coming over from mainland America it’s even better – you won’t have far to travel, and you don’t have to fill in a visa either.
Despite only being just over 2,000 miles from California, Hawaii really has a different way of life. From sugary white beaches to technicolor coral reefs, and a diverse range of hiking trails and volcanoes for the adventurous soul, Hawaii truly has something for everyone.
