  1. The Maldives


With stunning views like this, it’s no wonder The Maldives has topped the ‘Top Honeymoon Location’ lists for decades. If all-inclusive private island resorts and over-water villas that look out onto the vast, tranquil blue oceans is your thing, then this is the destination for you. It has everything from couples spas and underwater-restaurants to ocean cruises and seaplane rides that allow you to enjoy the magnificent views from the air. If you’re feeling a little daring that is. There’s also a wealth of breath-taking underwater reefs, corals and sea-life for the explorer in you. Lastly, you’ll have to be sure to check out the spectacular glowing beach of Vadhoo Island. It’s magical and mysterious beauty is bound to leave you with a romantic memory to cherish for a lifetime.


  1. Thailand


It might be known for the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, but don’t be fooled. The beach holiday resorts in Thailand offer the perfect destination for couples looking to kick-back and relax on perfect white beaches. If you’re yet to experience lounging in an infinity pool, staring onto the backdrop of wooded hill tops and lusciously green gardens, then you’ll want to give this a try. For the foodie couples, you’ll be treated to gourmet fine-dining and pool-side candle lit dinners. Definitely something you’ll want to tell the grand-kids about one day. Imagine this: you’re cosied up in a hammock with your man, you cheers a cocktail and take a sip as you relax into his arms, and then enjoy a moment of silence as you listen to the palm-trees sway in the wind and the gentle waves roll against the shore. C’mon, you’re booking your flights now, aren’t you?


  1. Jamaica


The birthplace of reggae, it’s no wonder Jamaica boasts some of the most relaxing honeymoon destinations for newly-wed couples. If anyone knows how to relax in style, it’s the Jamaicans! If you love eating delicious food, drinking potent cocktails and swimming out along beautiful ocean-shores, then we think you might have just found the honeymoon for you! If you decide to stay in the famous Montego Bay, you’ll be treated to champagne bed in breakfasts, relaxing spas, and, if you’re feeling adventurous, kayak trips that let you explore the glorious sea landscapes the island has to offer. Did we mention the aromatherapy rooms and relaxing outdoor yoga yet? If that doesn’t tempt you, then you might be swayed by a romantic bamboo raft trip down the Martha Brae River. It’s sure to melt away any leftover wedding tension as you sit-back, relax and soak in the stunning greenery and lavish woodland.


  1. South Italy



Who says you have to travel afar for your honeymoon. South Italy offers some of the most breath-taking Mediterranean views you’ll see. And, since a flight over is going to be less than half the time of any of the other destinations, you’ll be relaxing faster than you can say ‘I do’! If it’s a relaxing European getaway you’re looking for then be sure to look into The Amalfi Coast, Puglia and Sicily. Which showcase the absolute best the Mediterranean has to offer. You’ll be treated to delicious traditional Italian foods and flavoursome full-bodied wines that fuel those late-night deep conversations with your partner that make you fall in love all over again. For the bougie couples, you’ll be able to explore the sea from your own private yacht. Just sail out, anchor up and then lie-down and relax in the Mediterranean sun. Work, bills and chores will be as far from your mind as you are from home.

  1. Seychelles


Imagine having a beach bay like that, all to yourselves. There’s a reason we left the Seychelles until last. Because we think this one might be the clincher. Known for pristine white sands, beautifully clear ocean waters and luxury resorts that specialise in providing newly-weds a phenomenal honeymoon, it’s no wonder it’s the number one honeymoon destination. Situated off the coast of east-Africa, The Seychelles is the personification of luxury. Exactly what you deserve after the months of non-stop wedding stress. It’s the ideal location for couples looking to be pampered and spoiled. You’ll be able to sip champagne and hold your partners hand as you enjoy the most relaxing couples massage together you’ll ever experience. That is what you want isn’t it? Or maybe you’d rather try a novelty called island hopping through the causeways? After all, you’re not just going there to relax, you’re going there to create memories. And what better story to tell than how you planned your future together while hopping islands in the Seychelles. Ready to book?
