Today I have Penny from Suitcase Travel on the blog to give you a guest post all about some amazing locations that will blow you away for the holiday of a lifetime!
The plans for your wedding day are coming along nicely so now it is time to have a think about the honeymoon. A honeymoon is like no other holiday as you can finally tick something off your travel bucket list. Whether that is visiting a destination you have always wanted to go, staying in a luxury hotel, getting close to wildlife, food-based activities to a sporting activity to name a few examples. If you really want to do something special for your holiday, your honeymoon is the perfect time to do it.
If you are unsure of where to go and what to do for yours, do not worry as luckily I have chosen our top Honeymoon Goals from our honeymoon couples here at Suitcase Travel.
Top 10 Amazing Honey Moon Locations.
1. Escape To Paradise In The Maldives
The most asked for honeymoon destination that I get is the Maldives. They are for many, the epitome of the dream Honeymoon Goal. The islands come with soft white sand beaches and crystal clear waters that are hard to find anywhere else in the world. There are hundreds of islands to choose from all with their different personalities but this just means there is always one that is perfect for you. If you cannot choose between two different islands, no worries as it is really easy to do a bit of island hopping. Another positive in going to the Maldives for your honeymoon is that you can enjoy the delights all year round.
2. Get Close To Wildlife On Safari
Going on a safari is a truly magical experience that is like no other. Getting to see the wild animals in their natural habitat will take your breath away each time you catch a glimpse of them. Choosing your destination and safari lodge is key to ensuring you have the best experience. For a luxury safari experience with a quirky, vibrant style, Jaci’s Lodges in South Africa is one of the best. It is in a peaceful retreat and full of romantic touches that make it a firm favourite among our couples honeymoon goals.
3. Stay In A Treehouse In Thailand
Thailand is a great country as it literally has everything – vibrant cities, lots of opportunities to get close to wildlife that is good for the animals and great beaches for you to unwind on. For somewhere totally unique to stay at, the Treehouse Villas in Koh Yao Noi are the place to stay because frankly, how often can you say you have stayed in a treehouse? They are also full of luxury touches to enhance your time here even more. It really is a place that makes everyone go wow!
4. There’s More To Mauritius Than The Beautiful Beaches
The island of Mauritius is a firm favourite among honeymoon goals for our clients. It is jam-packed full of things for you to do to create amazing memories but also has the most beautiful beaches and hotels for you to relax. A popular thing to do is to go to a rum distillery as the island is one of the world’s biggest producers of rum. What also makes it so popular is the price – people are often surprised by how affordable it is. The final bonus is that the best time to go here is between May and September so perfect if you are getting married in the summer and want to go on your honeymoon straight after your wedding day.
5. Enjoy Luxury On A Greek Island
The Greek islands have some of the most stunning and luxury accommodation with breath-taking views. It is our most popular destination in Europe for our honeymooners that want plenty of relaxation time with a touch of luxury combined with a short flight. All the islands are brimming full of charm and so staying at two or three islands is another popular option. Greece really does make an ideal honeymoon and should not be forgotten.
6. Unwind On A Beach In Antigua
Antigua is the Caribbean’s most romantic island so is one of the best places to go for your honeymoon. A fun fact is that it has 365 beaches making that one for each day of the year so if you love the beach, you will find your perfect one here. It also has some of the least rainfall in the Caribbean so the only months to really avoid visiting are August and September because it is hurricane season in the Carribean. Therefore, it is always worth looking at going there out of peak season as you can get a real bargain!
7. Feel The Magic In Disney World Florida
Disney World is a place full of magic and where dreams come true so should be featured on every list of honeymoon goals. It has become one of our top honeymoon destinations especially with people combining it with a stay in one of the Florida beaches or on one of the Caribbean islands. Visiting Disney World Florida is on many people’s bucket list with all the thrills from the rides and excitement from the electric atmosphere that surrounds the parks.
8. Discover The Amalfi Coast In Italy
Another little gem in Europe is the Amalfi Coast in Italy. The area has everything to offer – lovely views as you travel around the whole area, some of the best restaurants in Italy, plenty of shopping and sightseeing to do and relaxing by the pool. It is a great destination if you would like to explore the area at your own pace and to go off the beaten track, especially if you have a car some of the time. There are plenty of picturesque towns and villages for you to wander through filling your senses with the sights and smells of the colourful buildings and some of the tastiest food you will ever have.
9. High Roller Honeymoon Goals – Go Crazy In Las Vegas And Hawaii
There is nowhere in the world like Las Vegas and as a result, it appeals to so many people. However, after a few days spent here, you will need a little rest and Hawai is a great option. These two places are easy to combine together so it works out perfect to visit both for your honeymoon. Hawaii is a haven of islands and there are 3 islands that you can stay on. There is the Main Island or Honolulu that is the busiest with the popular Waikiki Beach as the main hub; the Big Island which has plenty to do if you want to go out and explore and finally Maui that is the romantic island with boutique hotels that all make a great honeymoon.
10. See The Northern Lights In Finland
A honeymoon does not need to be in a hot destination. Catching glimpses of the Northern Lights is not to be missed as it will take your breath away and Finland is a great place to see these. It is above the Arctic Circle, which gives you the best chance of seeing them. For total honeymoon goals, you need to stay at the uber-chic Arctic Treehouse. You can snuggle up together whilst getting the dreamiest views from your room of the whole surroundings that are super pretty during the day with the snow-covered forest. Plus you can go on excursions such as snowmobiling and husky dog sledding.
