Let’s start with a luxury holiday to the Bahamas, and more specifically the pink sand, beach paradise that is Harbour Island.
Frequented often by star names such as Mick Jagger and Bill Gates, it is a secluded and picturesque sanctuary that is ideal for couples seeking solitude. With the Tingum Village Hotel also offering accommodation from just £80 per night, this location offers the ideal honeymoon balance of luxury, intimacy and affordability.
This location has the nickname Isle of the Gods, and this offers at least some insight into the appeal of the destination. A romantic and idyllic hub that is located amid towering temples and stunning mountain vistas, it is a location that offers intimacy and luxury like no other in the world.
So while Bali continues to earn a reputation as a popular business travel location, it will forever be synonymous with romance, love and passion.
Santorini is arguably one of the most beautiful locations in the world, with its golden shores, blue waters and stunning while structures. It is also a land renowned for its stunning sunsets and pristine accommodation, including the Perivolas Hotel and its wonderful, cliff-side location. A true paradise, Santorini is also relatively easy and cheap to access for European visitors.
This is the stuff that true honeymoon dreams are made of, from crystal clear waters and staggering mountain views to the sights of exotic fish and swirling, mesmerising coral reefs.
This is also a location that is synonymous with the rich and famous, although the emergence of affordable travel and accommodation outlets such as the Four Seasons resort (which sits astride a coral reef that includes a turquoise lagoon), has made it popular among honeymooners of all types!
If you have a smaller budget but do not wish to compromise on experience or scenery, why not visit the quaint, quiet and alluring Orkney Islands in Scotland.
Located in a picturesque, Northern archipelago along the Scottish coast, it boasts stunning greenery and sandstone cliffs that will melt the warmest of hearts. History buffs may also be interested to note that this site is home to Europe’s oldest known Neolithic village, with Skara Brae a significant draw for thousands of tourists each year.
