These are some of the most beautiful and picturesque places in the world. If you’re already married, why not plan an anniversary trip, or even a second honeymoon!

The Top 7 Romantic Honeymoon Destinations According to JJ’s House

Bora Bora

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.

Fiji

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

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.

Jade Mountain Resort is among the best resorts to stay at on St Lucia; a five-star hotel offering ocean views over Anse Chastanet Beach.

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.

The Maldives

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.

Florence

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.

Santorini

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.

Hawaii

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.

    • Glad you enjoyed the post Roy! I have no doubt you’ll bump into them soon! 🙂

  1. We went to Singapore and did a tour of Malaysia has changed so much that was nearly 30 years ago now

    • I love Singapore! Haven’t made it to Malaysia yet, but it’s on the list! 🙂

  2. Great to see a list of honeymoon destinations that doesn’t include Paris! Well done just for that.

    Planning our honeymoon was by far the greatest aspect of getting married. In fact, I think I may have annoyed my now wife by completely disregarding the big day itself in place of constant travel ideas.

    In the end we spent 2 weeks disco ring southern Italy and eating as much amazing fresh produce as possible.

    Slightly cliched but Puglia in particular was devoid of tourist hordes even in August!

    Great list.

    • Thanks Tommo! Paris is incredibly overrated in my humble opinion!! And surely your wife wouldn’t have been annoyed that you were throwing all of your energy into making the most important part of the wedding celebrations count :D! After-all the wedding is just the formality – it’s the honeymoon where you’re marriage really starts!!

      Southern Italy sounds spectacular – maybe you can start planning for a second honeymoon at one of the above destinations someday soon 🙂

      All the best!

  3. So many amazing honeymoon destinations, and not enough time (or potential husbands) to visit them all! 😉

    • Bahaha potential husbands – love it 😀 You can definitely take multiple honeymoons with the one husband, why not right! Second , third and fourth honyemoons (etc) are definitely a thing … or maybe head to these amazing locations to renew your vows. Santorini would be an amazing place for that!

  4. All of these sound amazing, but if I could only pick one I think I’d go with Santorini. Greece is #Lifegoals.

    • Santorini is definitely one of my favorites. Definitely can’t go wrong with that choice for a honeymoon!

  5. I read an article this week about a couple who went on their honeymoon in 2013 or something like that and they’re still on their honeymoon. They kept traveling, and haven’t made it home yet!

    • Anne and Mike from HoneyTrek? They’re such a great couple, I love following their blog!

  6. One place we have been really wanted to go is Las Vegas, and staying in the penthouse suite on the honeymoon would just top it all off.

    • A really affordable honeymoon too, you can get amazing penthouse suites in Vegas for around $300, just because the competition for hotels is fierce here.

      Have an amazing honeymoon!

  7. Australia is one of the best honeymoon destinations.Great ocean road is famous in Australia and around the world as one of the best road trips on the planet. Hire a car from Avis for the best services and they are having their car rentals at many locations. Take a self-drive on the spectacular Great Ocean Road, which winds alongside the wild and windswept Southern Ocean covers an incredible range of scenery.

    • Thanks for your input Vishal, I totally agree that Australia is a great spot, the Great Ocean Road particularily. We’re heading back for a return road trip of this region next month actually, really looking forward to it!
