BEST LOCATIONS FOR HONEYMOON

Your honeymoon is likely going to be your first real chance to enjoy some quality time with your spouse. The trip should be relaxing while also suiting your wants, needs, and style as a couple. With that said, incorporating all of your favorite things into one trip can overwhelm, or take away from your time spent simply enjoying one another's company. Keep in mind that while off-season travel can save you money, it can also be unpredictable. Decide whether you're the type of couple who can handle making the most out of your plans being derailed; the last thing you'd ever want is to spend the majority of your trip in inclement weather, or discover that most of a location's must-visits are only open in high season. Here, the ultimate honeymoons locations to have on your short list inside and outside country.


Best Locations for Honeymoon in Bangladesh



1. Saint Martin Island, Cox’s Bazar


Why go

Saint Martin’s Island is a small island (area only 8 km2) in the northeastern part of the Bay of Bengal. This is the only coral island in our country. This place is so famous to all the Bangladeshi honeymoon couple for its natural beauty, blue sea water and calm environment. The island is all about sun, sea and palm trees. All the hotels run generators until 11 PM which are not allowed afterwards, so they then rely on solar power, which is popular throughout the island. There is no electricity supply from the national grid since a hurricane in 1991. During the day, it comes alive with water and beach sports, with beach parties and bonfires lighting up the evening skies.

Best Overseas Locations for Honeymoon


1. Bora Bora, French Polynesia


WHY GO

It's the stuff honeymoon fantasies are made of: crystal-clear waters, picturesque mountains and a coral reef swirling with colorful fish. No wonder it was recently voted one of the best islands in the world by US News and World Report.

WHERE TO STAY

The Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora (from $919, FourSeasons.com) is located on a coral reef that encloses a turquoise lagoon. Swoon!

2. The Maldives


WHY GO

This remote Indian Ocean archipelago greets honeymooners with white-sand beaches, crystal-clear waters, atolls and secluded resorts.

Indonesia


WHY GO

There's a reason its nickname is the “Isle of the Gods." Even before the hit book and movie Eat, Pray, Love, the island had been a magnet for romance seekers for its mist-shrouded temples, beautiful mountain vistas and vivid arts scene.

WHERE TO STAY

A recent filming locale for ABC's The Bachelor, The Mulia, Mulia Resort & Villas (from $380, TheMulia.com) fronts Nusa Dua coastline, which is famous for white-sand beaches and calm blue waters.

4. Paris, France


WHY GO

Paris is synonymous with romance. It's a combination of the architecture, the food and the art that makes this city so special.

WHERE TO STAY

When you stay at the elegant Hotel Plaza Athéneé (from $819, DorchesterCollection.com), splurge on a three-night Suite Life package and you'll be greeted at the airport, escorted through customs and then chauffeured to the hotel. Does the place look familiar? The property was the backdrop for Carrie and Big's reunion in the last season of Sex and the City.

5. Venice, Italy


WHY GO

Italy has long been a favorite honeymoon location for newlyweds. After all, nothing says “amore" quite like a gondola ride through the Grand Canal as you sail past historic buildings.

WHERE TO STAY

The just-opened (read: stylish and modern) JW Marriott Venice (from $437, Marriott.com) is located on a private island with stunning vistas of Piazza San Marco. Pretend you're Hollywood royalty (like Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney) as you take the complimentary 15-minute ferry ride to Venice.

6. Santorini, Greece


WHY GO

This small volcanic island is known for its seriously gorgeous sunsets and pristine whitewashed villas.

WHERE TO STAY

7. Koh Tao, Thailand


WHY GO

WHY GO

WHERE TO STAY

Chase the Northern Lights at the sophisticated and remote-feeling Hotel Búdir (from $186, HotelBudir.is). It's only a few hours drive from the capital city of Reykjavik (which also has an airport) and is set at the edge of the Snaefellsjökull National Park with animposing glacier at the center. Snaefellsjökull became well known whenit was used as the “gateway to the center of the earth" in Jules Verne's famous book Journey to the Center of the Earth.

9. Palawan, Philippines


WHY GO

It's the country's final frontier—an unspoiled province of jaw-dropping waterscape scenery and tropical beauty.
