In this blog post we are going to explore some of the wonderful honeymoon options that seem to be attracting brides and grooms throughout Europe and further afield. We would love to hear from any of our readers about any unusual destinations you can personally recommend, so please feel free to get in touch.
Picture this; you have just enjoyed the most fabulous wedding day surrounded by family and friends and now you are looking forward to taking some time out to celebrate this new exciting phase in your relationship. A honeymoon is a great chance for you to take a break together, relax after all that planning, celebrate your relationship and make memories that will last a lifetime. Planning your honeymoon can be a welcome distraction from the stress of wedding planning as this little treat is just for the two of you and you will no longer have to take into consideration the wants and needs of your guests.
Whether you are a lazing on the beach type, or a couple that’s after a refreshing city break, we’ve put together a list of some of the most sought-after honeymoon destinations for 2017, to help you decide where to celebrate the start of your new life together.
Both Venice and Rome are must-see romantic cities. Embody Audrey Hepburn at the Spanish steps or tick off clichés one by one as you glide along the canals in a Gondola. There is of course much more to Italy than these two bastions of culture, enjoy renaissance Italy at its finest in Florence, a fabulous place to visit if either you or your spouse is an Art History buff. Be inspired by beautiful Museums, wonderful architecture and master-works of sculpture.
Ireland & Great Britain
Although “staycation-ing” can be all the rage for the summer time, people don’t often think of it as an option for a honeymoon. Choosing a get-away in the UK or Ireland, can cut down on travel time, and give you a chance to discover a place together that you’ll be able to get back to easily. If you have an island escape on your minds, why not visit stunning Orkney in Scotland or the Aran Islands in Eire.
This wine rich region with absolutely superb scenery is a wonderful place to relax with your true love, sampling great cuisine and the wonderful vineyards in the region. A must see for those of you who really relish top-notch cuisine and exciting wines.
An island steeped in ancient culture and nestled in the Mediterranean. Santorini is particularly popular for honeymooners and we can honestly say it is a welcome retreat for any holidaymaker. This tiny island is filled with whitewashed villas, beautiful black-sand beaches and breath-taking hikes. Greece is particularly popular for couples that are looking for a mixed holiday as you can simply laze on a beach or take in the many historical sites, museums and architecture.
If you’re looking forward to getting away from it all, an island getaway couldn’t be more perfect. Whilst not the most budget friendly destination, Barbados packages do come with a range of all inclusive options with most travel operators, so shop around and we’re sure you’ll find a package that offers great value. Barbados is a particularly romantic honeymoon destination where you can spend your time strolling hand in hand with your loved one or relax at poolside retreats that are as opulent as the brochures describe!
A perfect beach getaway and an absolute holiday of a lifetime. We can highly recommend Koh Tao, which is filled with a host of beautiful beaches, amazing scenery and is a knockout destination for those who really want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Why not take a motorbike tour with your partner to find your favourite beach? Koh Tao an adult only resort filled with beautiful bamboo huts you so can enjoy the ultimate secluded escape.
