Our Pick Of The Best Island-Hopping Honeymoons
Weddings are all about love, joy and commitment. They are also emotional, often stressful, and always frantic. For this reason, honeymoons more than any other holiday are about you- about taking the time to rediscover one another away from the pressures of everyday life. Honeymoons should be perfect- and often, perfection means having the best of both worlds. These island-hopping honeymoon ideas illustrate how easy it is to do just that, by picking two contrasting yet perfectly complimentary holiday destinations.
Sri Lanka & The Maldives
The idyllic islands and atolls of the Maldives have long been a favourite amongst honeymooning couples, and for good reason. Choose a resort like the Gili Lankanfushi Maldives, located on its own private coral island, and it’s easy to let the rest of the world fade into the background. From luxury spa treatments to world-class snorkelling and diving, time spent in the Maldives is the perfect antidote to the pressures of planning a wedding. Rejuvenation will come quickly, and when it does, you may feel ready for something a little more fast paced- and where better to make new memories as a married couple than the fascinating island of Sri Lanka? There, culture and cuisine create a riot of taste and colour, and national treasures including the wildlife-filled Yala National Park and the ancient Sigiriya Fortress constitute honeymoon highlights you will never forget.
Singapore & Indonesia
It’s a well-known fact that the key to a successful marriage is compromise, and this island combination caters to the shopaholics and the nature-lovers alike. The city state of Singapore is an urban fantasyland, where forward-thinking architecture, upmarket restaurants and opulent accommodation provide a vibrant backdrop to the country’s main attraction- its shopping opportunities. After a few days exploring the treasures of retail hubs like Orchard Road, however, you may find yourselves in need of rest. Tranquil Indonesia provides endless opportunities to catch your breath, particularly in the seclusion of remote havens like Bali’s Amankila resort. Strung out like emeralds upon an azure sea, the islands of this mystic archipelago offer the chance to get in touch with your spiritual side- whether by exploring Bali’s Buddhist temples or by soaking in the natural beauty of the sun-soaked Gili Islands.
Borneo & The Philippines
There’s nothing like doing something extraordinary with the one you love to strengthen the bond between you, and in Malaysian Borneo, the extraordinary is everywhere. It could be watching the sunrise from the summit of Mount Kinabalu, or witnessing a mandarin fish mating ritual whilst diving at sunset in Mabul. It could even be going in search of the last remaining orangutans, before soaking in the sounds of the rainforest at night. The Philippines has its share of the extraordinary, too, and although the spectacular beaches of Palawan or Boracay may seem a world away from the Bornean jungle, this island nation offers plenty of unforgettable experiences. From exploring the private islands of resorts like Amanpulo on Pamalican to swimming with whale sharks in Donsol, your time in the Philippines promises to be the perfect prelude to the rest of your life together.
