The most popular thing that people choose to do when they get married is travel together. Couples often take trips to destress from the wedding and just enjoy spending time together as newlyweds before settling into everyday life.
Before starting your Honeymoon search, here are some questions that often get asked and something you should think about.
What do couples do on their Honeymoon?
Take it easy. The honeymoon is usually a time for newlyweds to relax and enjoy each other’s company. Visit local landmarks. Relax poolside. Take advantage of late mornings and late nights. Sample local cuisine and just simply have fun.
Where should I go on my Honeymoon?
If you’re looking for somewhere exotic, then there are plenty of destinations available, from tropical islands like Bora Bora and Tahiti to more traditional locations such as Italy and France. Whether it’s an adventure-filled trip around Europe or relaxing beach holidays in Thailand, there’s something for everyone.
How much does a honeymoon cost?
Honeymoons have become increasingly affordable over recent years. With so many different packages being offered at every hotel across the globe, you’ll find yourself spoilt for choice. The average price per night ranges between £200-£500 depending on location and accommodation type. However, if you want to splurge, some ultra-luxury resorts with a gorgeous beach offer prices up to £10,000 per couple per week. It just depends on your budget and what you want out of your honeymoon hotel.
Are there any special things to consider while booking a honeymoon?
When choosing where to spend your Honeymoon, think carefully about how long you plan to stay away from home. If you only need a few days to recover after the big day, then staying close to home might work best for you. But if you’d prefer to relax and unwind for longer than this, then going further afield could be better suited to you.
Also, bear in mind that not all countries allow same-sex marriages. So check ahead of time which ones do and don’t. You may also wish to avoid certain areas during times of unrest.
Do I need any special requirements?
If you need wheelchair access or other facilities, these must be considered when selecting your honeymoon resort. Some hotels offer rooms specifically designed for disabled guests, but others won’t cater to specific needs unless requested beforehand. It’s always worth checking first.
Top 6 Trends for
Honeymoons in 2022
A growing number of couples are opting for intimate escapes rather than large-scale vacations. They love getting back to nature with stunning scenery and beautiful beaches. These can include everything from small boutique retreats to remote hideaway lodges to exploring marine life in the coral reefs.
Whether you fancy exploring ancient ruins or climbing mountains, there are endless opportunities for adventurous travellers travelling. Many resorts will now offer adrenaline-packed experiences, including zip-lining, bungee jumping, and white water rafting.
Perhaps you just want a private beach on coral islands or an outdoor pool in a romantic hotel. You’ll find our recommendations for popular honeymoon destinations in the Top Trending searches below.
Rooms with a View
After 18 months of largely staying in our own homes, couples will be yearning to travel again in 2022, and they will want to wake up each morning in a place – and to a view – that takes their breath away.
Whether you want to watch the sunrise in a treehouse among the lush forests of Costa Rica, swim in your own infinity pool overlooking the Pitons in St Lucia, or take in the Amalfi Coast from your terrace with a sundown Aperol Spritz, your romantic Honeymoon is the ideal time to experience this once-in-a-lifetime accommodation.
It is one of the few sites in the world that can be regarded as really unmissable, perched high in the Andes. It’s on everyone’s bucket list of places to see, seeing a million tourists each year. There is, however, only one way to view it in style: by staying at Belmond Sanctuary Lodge.
It is the only hotel near the entrance to the historic Inca citadel of Machu Picchu. For years, they have served as the unofficial doorway to the Inca world, encouraging visitors to explore with unparalleled access and professional direction.
Most tourists to the citadel take a lengthy bus trip from Aguas Calientes, but their cosy hideaway is just a few feet away. Get up before the sun comes up and be the first through the gates. The mountains emerge from a dense blanket of mist looking gorgeous, and Machu Picchu is stunning in isolation.
Although social distancing will (hopefully) have less impact on travel in 2022, couples are gravitating toward peaceful, quiet locations where they may claim their own space. They can walk the white sand beaches, and take in the panoramic views of a private island for the perfect Honeymoon experience.
Islands like Bali, Mauritius, and those off the coast of Thailand are romantic destinations that provide peace and quiet in luxurious, relaxing settings where couples may rest without disturbances.
Cape Fahn Hotel is your own little island retreat in one of Thailand’s most exclusive locations. It consists of a collection of independent and unique villas, each with its own private pool and located just 300 metres from the beautiful Choeng Mon beach. This is accessible by a one-hour boat ride from Surat Thani or a 15-minute drive from Samui International Airport.
Natural Wonders of the World
The seven natural wonders of the world initiative was created in 2008 to promote and conserve this collection of huge, awe-inspiring, stunning views of the natural phenomena that should be on any honeymooner’s bucket list.
The natural wonders are also popular Honeymoon destinations! The Northern Lights, the Grand Canyon, the Paricutin volcano, Mount Everest, Rio de Janeiro’s Harbour, Victoria Falls, and the Great Barrier Reef are all once-in-a-lifetime experiences that are made even more special on your Honeymoon.
Couples are becoming more aware of the environmental effect of long-distance travel and how to travel sustainably. With more eco-hotels and carbon offset flights than ever before, now is the time to visit these treasures and help the organisations trying to conserve them.
You won’t be far from the best place to spot the Northern Lights by staying at this luxurious Icelandic hotel.
Silica Hotel is located in the middle of a beautiful lava terrain, approximately 10 minute walk from the Blue Lagoon. The hotel has its own private swimming lagoon, which is open to hotel guests from 9:00 a.m. to 22:00 p.m. daily. Several design awards have been bestowed upon the hotel.
It is built-in sync with the surrounding nature and provides a haven of peace, relaxation, and healing. There are 35 bright and large double/twin rooms in the hotel. All rooms have private bathrooms and a balcony with spectacular views of the surrounding lava fields.
Pets are Coming too!
Travelling with your pet is a delightful experience that will enhance your Honeymoon. Expect to see an increase in the number of pet-friendly rooms in a romantic hotel, B&Bs, and Airbnb accommodations by 2022.
While you can take your pet overseas (pet passports are no longer valid, and an animal health certificate is required), most couples who bring their pets will remain in the UK and Ireland for their honeymoons.
The UK has so many pet-friendly hotels that it’s simple to travel with your pet, and the UK also has some of the best walks in the world, which are made even better with a dog by your side.
Uk Honeymoons packages are becoming extremely sought after due to their ease and being able to take our pets. But when you have Lords of the Manor Hotel, why would you need to jet off on a plane?
You can reach one of the most famous Cotswold luxury hotels by driving through the rolling hills and rural splendour of the Cotswolds.
Lords of the Manor is ideal for those searching for a really magical honeymoon hotel with your furry friend included. A country homestay will always outperform any other Cotswold accommodation. The genuineness of taking up residence in a rural cottage, no matter how long for, is what makes a Cotswold visit unique.
Minimoons have grown in popularity since the Covid lockdown began, as couples were unable to go overseas. Despite the world’s reopening, Minimoons will be a huge business in 2022 and have had a luxurious and last-minute makeover.
Last minute honeymoon deals are absolutely brilliant if you don’t have a huge honeymoon budget. Suppose you have the flexibility to book a last-minute romantic break, to start married life, and can wait until the cooler months. In that case, a luxurymoon that you previously believed was out of your price range might be a possibility for 2022.
This honeymoon package holiday at The Splendide Royal Paris crams feelings and experiences between romance and the Parisian art of life. It is housed in a stately home erected in 1897 in the capital’s historical and cultural area, just steps from the Faubourg Saint-Honoré and the Champs-Élysées.
