After one of the most important days of your life this is going to be one of the most important holidays so you want to get it right. Whether you are looking to wander along a deserted beach, watch the sun set over the African plains, sample the wines in the Cape or be pampered in a Himalayan Spa, Putney Travel will help find the perfect honeymoon for you. You might also want to look at our Honeymoon Calendar.
Far from the Madding Crowd
Some couples just want to get away from it all and have total relaxation avoiding the crowds and bustle of the busier resorts and cities. For starters how about the Maldives, a smaller Caribbean island, a secluded Mediterranean hotel/villa or go the whole hog and disappear to a spa retreat in the Bhutanese Himalayas!
Activity and Beach
One of the most popular choices is to go for a mix of holiday types with an active week followed by chill-out time at a beach resort. This works particularly well when you combine a safari week, in say Tanzania or Kenya, with an idyllic beach retreat in Zanzibar. Sri Lanka offers both options, or you can link with the Maldives for the second part, and there are many other Asian options – India, Thailand, Borneo, Vietnam to name a few.
If planning your wedding day puts you in the mood to party on for your honeymoon you will have no shortage of choices. The Caribbean has plenty of options as do Italy, Spain, Miami, Mexico and Dubai. Superb hotels, great restaurants and bars and night-life aplenty.
In some ways there is almost too much choice so why not have a look at our Honeymoon Calendar for some ideas for each month? It is by no means an exhaustive list but might be a good starting point to generate some ideas. No one should ever forget their honeymoon so make sure you get the right advice to make it a holiday to remember.
Do you want to go away straight after the wedding? If you have a particular destination in mind it might be worth delaying your departure a bit to ensure you travel at an ideal time of year.
