Your honeymoon is probably one of the most important holidays you’ll ever arrange, so you’ll want it to be anything but typical. After all, it’s your time to celebrate wedded bliss together, away from the hullabaloo of wedding planning, and hiding out from the rest of the world.

Like wedding dresses themselves, honeymoons now come in all shapes and sizes – everything from off-the-charts, once-in-a-lifetime adventures, to blissful breaks in bohemian boutique boltholes.

So if you’re looking for a sublime setting to get your happily ever after off to the most romantic of starts, take a look at our top ten all-time favourite honeymoon havens (both long- and short-haul), and let us take care of the rest…


Cast away to the super-exclusive Seychelles – in our mind the hero of all honeymoon havens. Combine a stay on Mahé – home to pictureperfect beaches and the bustling capital of Victoria – with the ultimate in sweet seclusion: hunkering down at a pristine private island. Or why not soak up the archipelago's deserted beaches, diving sites and granitic and coral scenery, island-hopping from the sanctuary of your own fully-crewed private yacht?


The utterly beguiling Greek Islands provide the perfect backdrop for a legendary honeymoon: brimming with natural beauty, rich history, compelling mythology and a cornucopia of seductive hideaways. But it’s Santorini and its heart-stopping sunsets over the Caldera, multi-coloured villages seemingly carved out of the plunging cliffs, postcard-worthy views, winery tours, blissful beaches and magnificent underwater world, that have made Santorini the European honeymoon hotspot du jour.


Home to more adventure than even the most celebrated novelists could dream up, South Africa is an extraordinary place that will entice you back time and again, with the cosmopolitan elegance of Cape Town, the stunning Garden Route, famed for its pretty towns, superb seafood and amazing whale-watching, and the primal attractions of the Kruger National Park; not to mention the Cape Winelands, where you’ll find some of the world’s best wines and finest restaurants.


With star treatment all the way, the awe-inspiring US of A serves up some of the planet’s most exciting honeymoons, encompassing everything from sun-baked deserts and wide-open wilderness, to sun-kissed beaches and neon-lit cities. Take a romantic cross-country road trip along the legendary Route 66 for a true slice of Americana; start your new life together where it all began, exploring the charms of New England; or combine food, fun and adventure at a working dude ranch.


For a slice of laid-back luxury, Caribbean charm and elegant British heritage, Barbados is unbeatable. Scoring heavily on the romance front, you’ll fall head over heels for the soft pink sands, aquamarine waters, balmy climate, and genuine Bajan hospitality. And there’s a wealth of accommodation options too, from boutique beauties and world-class wonders, to fully-staffed private villas, where the only thing you’ll need to lift is a Banks Beer or a traditional rum punch coctail as the sun sets!



We all need a little taste of the Dolce Vita once in a while and Italy delivers it in spades. Along with its abundance of art, food, fashion, history and cultural treasures, there’s also an enduring passion for love! For an unforgettable honeymoon, there’s nowhere better than the dreamy Amalfi Coast, oozing oldschool movie star glamour and sophisticated style; or the Italian Riviera’s fashionable Portofino: a ‘60s favourite of Liz Taylor and Sinatra, and just as beloved for its local, laid-back charm.

Flashy, fun and slightly surreal, Dubai is a city unlike any other; awash with treats for all the senses. A land of extremes, one minute you’ll find yourself lazily lounging at your exquisitely-luxurious resort set alongside the Arabian Gulf; the next, exploring the austere aura of the desert. Dive into the dizzying array of adventures, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs; uncover the delights of Old Arabia; or max out your flexible friend at one of the Emirate’s epic shopping malls.
