Luxury Honeymoons Honeymoon Destinations

Every bride's notebook of potential honeymoon destinations will surely have an indulgent list or two devoted to luxury honeymoons - be they the tempting white sands and palm trees of a tropical island resort, or one of the 333 paradise-like island that make up Fiji - luxury is what every bride hankers after!

What Does Luxury Mean to You?

One person's idea of luxury, might of course be another's idea of ostentation, so what you perceive as a luxury resort or complex might not appeal to your partner! Expensive does not always mean luxurious, so don't judge a resort solely by its price tag!

What Do They Use in the Spa?

Most resorts have a spa - it's what products they use in it that will give you an idea of of its luxe status! Look out for high end, cutting edge treatments and therapies that you don't find on the high street.

What's Included for Honeymooners?

A chocolate on your pillow and a basket of fruit to welcome you does not a luxury break make! Find out what makes your chosen resort's honeymoon package and suite stand out from the rest - four poster beds? Champagne on arrival? Luxurious spa treatments? Remember, it's your time to be spoiled!

Who Goes There?

Find out who your chosen destination is popular with - if it's media avoiding A list jet setters, then it's probably top notch in the luxury stakes. If it's all footballers wives and reality TV show rejects, look elsewhere!

Popular Luxury Destinations

Some destinations remain perennial favourites with honeymooners - Paris, Rome, the Seychelles and Fiji for example, but in terms of luxurious, decadent locations with top notch resorts and hotels, there are countless places to choose from:
