After the stress of planning your wedding, the tears that were shared among family members on your big day, and the inevitable end to the celebrations…you need a vacation. There’s no better way to begin your marriage than with a honeymoon, whether that be two days or two years after the big day. However, choosing a destination is a difficult choice to make. You want to spend your hard-earned money on a place that’s guaranteed to supply you and your spouse with happy memories (and a place that is very photogenic, of course). What type of environment do you both like? Warm beaches? Ancient castles? Or maybe just a cute B&B in an even cuter village? Whatever you two lovebirds prefer, this list will provide some great ideas for that once in a lifetime trip.
Chiang Mai, Thailand
If you want to feel like royalty, then visit Ashford Castle in Ireland. This historical place has been converted into the perfect honeymooners experience. There’s a spa on site, a romantic dining room, and you even get afternoon tea. Take a stroll along the perfectly landscaped areas (don’t forget to look for fairies).
A popular choice to be sure. Fiji is the perfect tropical destination. The Royal Davui Island Resort has a private island that supplies all your honeymoon fantasies. You can travel via a helicopter or speedboat to this property that contains sixteen villas nestled within ten acres of tropical gardens.
If you want to visit ancient temples and shop in a foreign marketplace, then Morocco can provide you with what you need. La Mamounia is a great place to stay while you explore the old city. You’ll even be able to see the Atlas Mountains, so bring your camera for this trip.
This is a convenient place to visit simply because you don’t need a passport. It’s a popular choice due to its tropical weather, breathtaking beaches, and tourist attractions (want to visit a volcano?) Hotel Wailea is a great place for couples to relax and take refuge from the inevitable crowds.
Girdwood is the home of Alyeska Resort, which is the place for couples that want to conquer a mountain. You can take an aerial tram up to the top of the hillside and ski back down. If you’re not into cold-weather sports, they have a restaurant that sits at the top of the mountain, too. Come back to the resort after your adventuring and enjoy a massage or a dip in the pool.
