1. Water Villa Heaven - The Maldives, Baros

With only 75 individual thatched-roof villas, and no children under the age of eight allowed, Baros Maldives is a haven for romantic honeymoon couples. The ambiance is refined and the service attentive yet friendly and informal; it is not surprising guests want to go back time and time again. 

You’ll enjoy panoramic ocean views, dedicated sun loungers under a thatched parasol on the beach and blissful choice of not one, but two pools on your private wooden deck. The Water Villas are, of course equally beautiful, dressed in silk and cotton and featuring sumptuous bathrooms. We suggest you request a room on the top of the jetty, (Penelope Cruz has stayed in one of these water villas!) looking out towards the west, and enjoy the most magnificent sunset with a chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc in your hand. Baros Maldives’ delicious diving options are endless. Whether you fancy a barbecue for two on the perfect beach, a Thai feast on the boardwalk, a picnic on a secluded sandbank or an intimate candleit dinner in a private palm grove, the dedicated staff will happily make it a honeymoon to remember.

2. Safari Honeymoon in Style - South Africa, Sanctuary Makanyane 

Makanyane’s wonderful mix of privacy, space, romance and tranquility make it an idea choice for your honeymoon! The secluded suites (just 8 of them, so a maximum of 16 guests) have floor to ceiling glass windows – perfect for watching passing elephants! At breakfast, discuss the exciting day ahead with your guide whilst at night, relax and reflect on your safari adventure over a private romantic dinner. After a memorable day of wildlife spotting, you will return to your suite to find a cosy fire lit and sumptuous fine linens on your bed just waiting to be snuggled into! A ‘must do’ at Makanyane is the sleep-out under the stars! The two-storey sleep-out will be lit with lanterns and your favourite drinks will be waiting 0 yu will sleep under a mosquito net and drift off to the sounds of the animal noises, whilst gazing in awe at the  vastness of the skies above you. Waking up, just the two of you, to watch the sunrise in the middle of the African bush, is utterly romantic! Makanyane’s sleep-out brings a truly magical and romantic “Out of Africa” moment to your honeymoon.

3. Blissful Island Hopping  - The Seychelles, Denis Private Island

The Seychelles is the perfect destination for ultimate honeymooners; gorgeous white sand, endless blue skies and beautiful weather all year round. However what attracts most people to the Seychelles is its ease for island hopping. Your island hopping itinerary can be perfectly tailor made to you to make sure the resorts you visit perfectly suit you. Each island is simply picture perfect! 

A must stay on your island hopping honeymoon is the self-sustainable hideaway – Denis Private Island. It is accessible only by light aircraft from the main island of Mahe. The organic farm on the island provides interesting insights behind the scenes of island life and you will be sure to meet some of the resident giant tortoises. You will snorkel right off the beach in the house reef and finish the day with sundowners by the beach.

4. An Indulgent Honeymoon for Wine Lovers - New Zealand, Eagles Nest Russell

New Zealand has it all. For those win love with food and wine as well as their partner, this is the place. The array of award-winning wines delight and whilst we would never suggest you let your honeymoon go by in a wine ingested blur, it’s hard not to indulge! 

Nestled on a private peninsula just minutes from Russell in the Bay of Islands, Eagles Nest Russell is a secluded retreat comprised of five truly unique, self-contained villas, each boasting eclectic yet casually elegant interiors. Set in extensive tropical gardens surrounded by native bush, this 75 acre estate enjoys spectacular views overlooking Tapeka Point and the Bay of Islands, offering complete privacy for your honeymoon in New Zealand.
