Honeymoons destinations come in all different shapes and sizes; beach holiday, safari, ski trip, cultural city break, etc. The perfect honeymoon is tailor-made to the couple’s interests, creating the opportunity for unforgettable memories. This list is a snapshot of 5 of the world’s hottest honeymoon destinations.

Bora Bora, French Polynesia

Known as the Jewel of the South Seas, Bora Bora is French Polynesia’s leading lady. More than a romantic ideal, she boasts unrivalled beauty. You’ll find lavish floating villas in this private oasis picked for marital bliss. From the day you arrive until the moment you part ways, you will be in awe of the crystal-clear waters, picturesque mountains and coral reefs swirling with fish. 

Serengeti, Tanzania

For the couple seeking a once-in-a-lifetime experience, the safaris in the Serengeti offer unbroken views of the plains, which play host to one of the greatest wildlife migrations on earth. Honeymooners can wake up to the trumpeting of elephants, take a balloon ride or witness the stampede of wildebeests on a game drive. This is a journey into the animal kingdom elevated by luxurious accommodation, excellent food and top quality service. This remote destination celebrates the spirit of wild Africa.


Tuscany, Italy

Tuscany, known as, “a marriage of taste and beauty”, is perfectly apt for a honeymoon destination. The region is home to fairy-tale villages, glorious castles and the highest concentration of art masterpieces in the world. Behind the scenery rests an area famed for wine production, luxurious hotels and world-renowned restaurants. Without a doubt this is one of the most fascinating regions in Italy; a magical setting to be wined, dined and in love.

Zermatt, Switzerland

Zermatt offers an idyllic honeymoon destination where guests are able to enjoy the longest summer skiing region in the Alps! The highest peak, the Matterhorn, is a sight to behold, standing at 14,692 feet. The mountain village of Zermatt promotes a peaceful, clean environment by prohibiting cars. Newlyweds can enjoy the quaint sights of cobblestone paths and Swiss chalets, or relish in the snowy splendour sipping gluwein around a hotel fireplace.

Cape Town, South Africa

Considered to be one of South Africa’s most beautiful cities, Cape Town stands at the tip of the African continent, surrounded by some of the country’s most remarkable scenery. Mountains unfold into romantic beaches, both on the Atlantic and the Indian Ocean. The Mother City, as it is affectionately known, offers a big-city buzz, wild landscapes, wine estates and close proximity to some of the world’s best safaris. It’s the perfect setting for newlyweds to create lasting memories.
