When you are done with sunbathing and swimming, you can enjoy the wellness facilities, dine at canopy level in the Treetop restaurant or even go on a night time snorkelling adventure.

Undiscovered Vietnam

The Con Dao islands off the south coast of Vietnam provide a unique opportunity for a romantic honeymoon on an untouched stretch of coastline of natural beauty. Secluded white sand beaches, crystal clear waters, lush green mountains, rare wildlife, you have it all here to make this a honeymoon par excellence.

Even though Con Dao really is a tropical paradise, you won’t be short of things to do. Take a scenic hike, go on a fishing trip, take out a couple of kayaks or go island-hopping in a speedboat. In the evening, you can just sit on the deserted beach and watch the sun go down.

Al’Ula, a journey through history

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has long been a crossroads of ancient civilizations. With a past that spans from prehistoric times to the present, AlUla was one of them, a vital crossroads along the famous incense-trading routes running from southern Arabia, north into Egypte, and beyond.

Layer upon layer of human history and a wealth of natural wonders are waiting to be explored, from dramatic rock formations and sand-swept dunes to archaeological ruins that trace the lives of the ancient cultures who built cities here.

Chill out in Canada

If you really want to ‘chill out’ on a wintertime honeymoon, here’s a suggestion – an Ice Hotel! The Hotel de Glace in Quebec, Canada, could be the perfect way to seduce (and surprise) your spouse. With its majestic snow arches, crystal clear ice sculptures and beautiful rooms, the Hôtel de Glace offers its guests a one-of-a-kind winter experience.

Why not celebrate your marriage in style with a romantic cocktail for two? Served in the Ice Bar in an ice glass! And then enjoy a fabulous hot tub beneath the stars.

Oman, from epic mountain passes to remote, storied islands

With plenty of natural beauty from mountains to deserts and a pristine coastline, off-the-beaten-track Oman is the perfect choice for anyone with a fascination for the ancient soul of the Arab world.

The country’s low-rise towns retain their traditional charms, and Bedouin values remain at the heart of an Omani hospitality.

Magic of Morocco

For a honeymoon full of magic, wellness and adventure make for Morocco’s candle-lit riads, Sahara desert nights and hammams. The landscape of Morocco varies greatly, from the golden dunes of the Sahara to the verdant coastal plains to the majestic High Atlas Mountains.

Nowhere is exoticism better showcased than in the ochre-and-rose-hued city of Marrakech or the blue city of Chefchaouen, where you can enjoy watching the sunset from the rooftop of your riad and lose yourself in the cool hues that grace almost every wall and doorway in town.

If you have planned your wedding in the summer, this is a great time to be in the Mediterranean; whether you are a culture or a beach lover, what could be more romantic than a honeymoon in Italy, France, Spain or Greece?
