Our Picks of The Best Honeymoon Destinations


An absolute classic for honeymoons, this island is a luxury getaway with turquoise waters and white sand. Go diving with the sea life, or stay in your own bungalow in the middle of the sea, with room service brought to you via boat! Whilst it might seem the height of luxury, it may be cheaper than you think to stay on the islands. The Maldives are a great year-round destination, with peak season in January, through to March.


This amazing country has something for everyone. Explore the bustle of Bangkok in the South, or have a more chilled out experience in Northern Chiang Mai. A foodie heaven, the grub is plentiful and cheap. There are so many different options for different budgets, and internal travel via plane is cheap and quick. Grab a ferry from Phuket or Krabi to one of the beautiful, white sand islands to truly escape to paradise.


The ultimate island and an Instagrammer’s dream! Bali has endless beaches along the Indian Ocean. Attracting travellers and couples on honeymoon. The country has a vibrant culture with many famous faces making the trip on a regular basis. Make sure you head to the island from May to September for the best weather.  



A Greek haven, Mykonos is a fabulous choice for a honeymoon destination. It is known for its summer party season and is often described as St-Tropez-meets-Ibiza. The set of the famous film Mamma Mia!, the island’s capital Horas has a quiet, idyllic charm with back-streets you can shop and get lost in for hours.


With amazing beaches and an interesting local culture (not to mention potent cocktails!), the resorts in Mexico go the extra mile in creating a great honeymoon experience. All ingredients to ensure newlyweds come back relaxed and happy. Another great all-year-round destination, Mexico gets a Si from us!

We hope we’ve helped you narrow down your choices for a beautiful honeymoon destination!
