Where Love Meets Luxury
St Lucia: After the stress of planning your big day, unwind and soak up the sun on the beautiful island of St. Lucia. Sugar Beach is the perfect location for lovebirds to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Book into a luxury beachfront hotel and wake up to the sight of the Caribbean sea. It’s a one of a kind way to begin your new lives together. If you and your partner are interested in water sports, then St Lucia is the place for you. Sugar Beach has its own dive centre, so indulge in windsurfing, kayaking or snorkelling. A trip to the beautiful island of St. Lucia would not be complete without a trek up the Piton Mountains, the best way to see the island in all of its glory.
Napa Valley & Sonoma: The world famous wine country of Napa Valley and Sonoma is the perfect stop for a rustic honeymoon. Located in California, you can almost guarantee good weather all year round. It’s no wonder Napa Valley is the most visited attraction in the state after Disneyland. But, with over 400 wineries, you will have plenty to chose from, especially if you are looking to beat the crowd for something a bit more cosy and romantic. Grab a bicycle and cycle along the stretches of wineries and take in your surroundings. Or relax by getting couples massages at one of the many spas. If you find you cannot relax any longer, Napa Valley has plenty of shops to keep you occupied - from vintage boutiques, to one of a kind jewellery.
Buenos Aires: If you and your partner are after a trip filled with culture, look no further than the Argentinian capital of Buenos Aires. The bright city is jam packed with things to do, such as the Cementerio de la Recoleta. A visit to a cemetery may seem morbid, but the stunning architecture is a must see in the city. Stroll around the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, taking in the outstanding art that dates back to the early sixteenth century. A visit to Buenos Aires wouldn’t be complete without a tango experience; if you’re not comfortable enough to dance yourself, you can attend a dinner and a show. Be sure to test your tastebuds with some local cuisine; try a ‘lomito’ - a slice of beef, similar to filet minion, served with tomato and lettuce on bread. And for a real treat, be sure to try the world famous dulce de leche!
Once the big day is done and dusted, newlyweds start their new lives with a few weeks away. We’ve chosen five of the best destinations to head to for your honeymoon.
Santorini: The picture perfect little city of Santorini, in Greece, is the ideal utopian paradise to celebrate your honeymoon. Aside from the beautiful architecture, the Mediterranean climate is a big reason why so many couples decide to visit. If history is your forte, then Santorini is the place for you and your loved one. The island is filled with historical delights that date back thousands of years. The first place to stop is Akrotiri, a pre-historic city whose buildings date back to the 17th century BC. A hiking trail from Fira to Oia will give you both the perfect opportunity to appreciate the beauty of where you are staying. If you can, stay for sunset. Bali: The Indonesian island of Bali is the spot for couples looking for something out of the ordinary. Bali offers the best of both worlds; there is plenty to do if you want to see the sights, but there are also beautiful beaches to take the weight off your shoulders and relax. Embrace the culture and religion of Bali by visiting their holiest of temples, Pura Besakih, in east Bali. It houses a staggering 23 separate temples, some of which date as far back as the 10th century. Tanah Lot is a must see.
