Honeymoon ideas

Every honeymoon we do is completely customized, so almost anything is possible. but to give you an idea of the kind of honeymoon you could have, we've put together some sample itineraries. 

You could start on the beach in Brazil and finish with caipirinhas in the fishing village of Trancoso. Or begin at Angkor Wat and end up on the island of Yao Noi amongst Thailand's famous pinnacles. Almost anything is possible. We've included a few ideas below to inspire you, but it's really just the tip of the iceberg. For your own customized honeymoon itinerary, get in touch with our honeymoon specialists.

Idea 01: Rainforests and reefs - Guatemala and Belize

Begin in Guatemala, a land of vibrant Indian cultures, ancient Mayan ruins, volcanoes, forests and colonial cities. Wake up to the roar of howler monkeys in the rainforest before heading to the waterfalls and fascinating cave systems of the Belizean highlands. Next, to the sea, and the world’s second longest barrier reef of pristine coral, clear waters and a rainbow world of exotic fish. Snorkel for hours, and take a cruise up Monkey River to see tropical birds, iguanas, manatees and crocodiles.

Idea 02: Beaches and blue lagoons - Sri Lanka / Maldives

From the tropical jungles and beaches of Sri Lanka to the turquoise waters of the Maldives, this itinerary takes you from one Indian Ocean paradise to another. Step back in time to Sri Lanka’s colonial era and the lush green tea plantations before heading to the palm-lined coast and then the historic Galle fort. Next, to the desert island paradise and blue lagoons of the Maldives for true romance in an over-water private villa before dining al fresco by candlelight after sundown.

Idea 03: Islands and valleys - Indonesia

Escape to Bali and Lombok for warm blue seas, lush green palms and sunsets you’ll never forget. Days are for sandy strolls and dips in your private pool. Nights are for sampling the nearby eateries and gazing at the stars. Next, explore the paddy fields of the island’s inland valleys, its fascinating cultural center and the extraordinary Tanah Lot.

Idea 04: Gondolas and gastronomy - Venice and Croatia

Discover the wonders of Italy’s floating city before crossing the sea to Croatia. Explore narrow, bustling streets before hopping on a Gondola and gliding down the waterways towards dinner somewhere deliciously Italian. Across the Adriatic Sea, dive into Croatia’s renowned crystal-clear waters or hire a little boat and head off with a picnic to discover Istria’s hidden beaches.

Idea 05: Grazing plains to glorious waters - South Africa and Mozambique

Witness the majesty of lion, rhino, and elephant in the dramatic African wilderness, then marvel at brightly-colored tropical fish and corals in an azure sea. This vacation begins with safari and ends by the ocean. Stay in a luxury, tented camp from which you can embark on a stunning game drive before a romantic ‘bush bath’ and dinner under the stars. Finish on Mozambique’s white sandy beaches where you can take a boat out to sea, dive amongst the corals, explore the nearby villages and watch the sun set over the ocean.
