Celebrating the start of your new life together isn't just any vacation, it's the vacation. It should be a hazy romantic dream of sun-kissed skin and afternoon cocktails. But it should also reflect both of your personalities, even if they're quite different. One of you may long to escape to a beach hut on stilts for some serious pampering while the other winces at Champagne and roses clichés and dreams of a multi-destination cultural odyssey through Peru and Brazil. There are no hard and fast rules to planning your honeymoon and plenty of ways to pepper in a little adventure without skimping on romance.
Planning a wedding is stressful enough so we make sure that planning your honeymoon is part of the fun. We'll start by asking you about your budget, when you want to travel, your initial thoughts about what your honeymoon may look like, and any special touches. Of course, you may also need advice on where to travel for the time of year you're getting hitched, which is where your travel consultant will be invaluable.
Here are a few ideas to serve as inspiration, but remember that because we customize your luxury honeymoon around you, they're simply intended to give you a flavor of what's possible. When you're ready, just give us a call.

To start planning your honeymoon
Honeymoons with touch of adventure
If the thought of lazing on a sun drenched beach with nothing to do leaves you cold, if you'd rather be white water rafting down the Zambezi than sipping cocktails by the pool, or if the prospect of holing up in a grass thatched bungalow seems less love nest and more cabin fever...maybe an adventure honeymoon is the answer.
After the excitement of the build up to your big day, it's fabulous to jet off to somewhere dreamy and simply flop on a strip of silver sand for a week or two. From pine-fringed coves to chic coastal towns and world class surf spots, our portfolio of the best beach destinations can be laid back or spiced up with a splash of adventure.
Honeymoons in Europe
The backdrop for some of the world’s most famous love stories, Europe with its ancient cities, quaint villages, varied landscapes and delicious food, is the perfect honeymoon destination. Wander hand in hand through cobblestone backstreets or hike through Scotland’s heather-carpeted Highlands; or soak up the sun amid orange and lemon trees on an island hideaway in Croatia.
Honeymoons with a dash of culture
From the temples of Angkor Wat to Shinto shrines in Miyajima, Japan, add some culture to your honeymoon, or combine a cultural journey with a few lazy days somewhere romantic.
If you want your honeymoon to be a no holds barred, extra-special adventure of a lifetime, our specialists have plenty of big ideas to share with you – or they can craft something completely new.
