After all the time and effort on planing you perfect wedding, Honeymoon is a way for newlywed couple to relax and spending time together. So, we track down some of the hottest 2018 honeymoon trends that you will need to see before you decide your first getaway together as husband and wife.
A safari is already a popular choice for honeymooners, but the new version is about more than ticking off Big 5 sights- it comes with more exiting schedules that combine nature wildlife, adventure, conservation cultural activities and romance in one.
Visit elephants in Thailand, trek through the rainforest spotting orangutans in Borneo, jump in a jeep for a game drive to spot the Big Five in the Serengeti… As couples continue to seek experience as well as luxury, wild encounters are racing up honeymoon wish lists.
Recommended honeymoon destinations: Thailand, South Africa and Cambodia.
Blame it on the cooking reality shows if you want to, but couples these days are actually planning their romantic getaways around food. From local delicacy street food to the ultra-lavish 12-course tasting extravaganzas, the food experiences have slowly started to influence the choice of a honeymoon destination. Bon Appétit before Bon Voyage, right?
Recommended gourmet honeymoon destinations: France, Italy, Mexico, and Japan
It’s time to unplug from technology and exchange tweets for the sounds of nature & instagram stories for the picturesque views around. Devoid of any digital connection, honeymooners will find more time with each other. As an added advantage, the digital detox honeymoon will leave the honeymooners recharged & renewed.
Recommended honeymoon destinations: Ti Sana in Italy, Kamalaya in Thailand, and SHA Wellness Clinic in Spain
CLASSIC BEACH BREAK
When it comes to honeymoons, a one-stop beach destination may seem retro, but it will never go out of fashion. After all the time and effort spent to have a perfect wedding, an easy escape where you don’t have to think about anything will be blissful. Because after a few days’ lazing on a white Maldives beach (or pink sand, if you’ve chosen The Bahamas), even the most zen of us require a little entertaining… And who better to do so than the local residents? The shoals of tropical fish that make their home in the surrounding reefs will brighten every day.
Most Maldives resorts offer snorkelling or glass-bottomed boat trips to catch sight of the ocean’s gems. Belize is the best for diving if you’re jetting off to the Caribbean.
Recommended honeymoon destinations: The Maldivas, The Bahamas and The Caribbean.
Where do we start when it comes to cruises? There’s just so much to love! From all-inclusive luxury to incredible food, glasses that are forever being topped up and the opportunity to see so many outstanding places, all in one honeymoon… book a budget-blowing cruise and you get so much more than you might at first imagine. And we haven’t even mentioned the chances to get glammed up for dinner – another excellent reason to buy those big day Jimmy Choos!
COLD CLIMATE LUXURY
You’ll be only too happy to cuddle up together when you’ve just tied the knot. Why not take advantage of those happy emotions with a cold climate destination? We recommend Iceland; a short-haul but ultra stunning snowy paradise by winter, transforming into an awe-inspiring landscape in the warmer months.
Visit in the cold season for your best chances to see the Northern Lights and spend the days husky sledding, waterfall spotting or simply soaking in a steaming hot tub, surrounded by snow…
Recommended honeymoon destinations: Iceland, Norway and Finland.
We hope this list would help you to plan your romantic honeymoon.
