1. The Maldives

The Maldives remains a firm favourite with lovers of lavish luxury and consistently tops the list of the most popular honeymoon destinations, year after year. And for good reason.

Endless expanses of tranquil, turquoise ocean. Perfect, powdery white-sand beaches. And ultra-deluxe villas to rival ‘Selling Sunsets’. The Maldives offers an escape from the hustle and bustle of the mundane and a chance to indulge in the romance of your very own fairy tale.

Picture your mornings having breakfast on the patio of your private villa, suspended by stilts above crystal waters and clear blue skies. Soak up the sunshine all afternoon at the adults-only beach. Then enjoy a delicious, gourmet dinner ‘neath a starry sky as you whisper sweet nothings to your love.

Where to stay:

For a taste of the finer things in life, head to the 5-star Como Maalifushi hotel.

Set in a serene slice of the Indian Ocean, book one of their overwater villas for a quintessentially romantic stay. Each equipped with its own pool, marble bathtub and outdoor shower for two, we’re sure the passion will flow at this remote island retreat.

A 7-night stay in their Beach Suite villa including complimentary sunset fishing trip for two will set you back about £4,494 (July 2023) when you book through Mr and Mrs Smith.

Add a Mr and Mrs Smith voucher to your wedding list.

How to get there:

Direct flights from London to Male International Airport take about 10 to 11 hours. Or alternatively, many flights stop in the Middle East (mainly Dubai or Oman) if you’d like to break up the journey.

Once you’ve arrived, travel to your resort by speedboat, seaplane or internal flight. Oo la la!

When to go:

To avoid monsoon season, we’d recommend going between November and April to make the most of all the Maldives has to offer.

2. Greece

We couldn’t create a honeymoon holidays hotlist without one of the world’s most beautiful countries - Greece!

Encircled by sparkling, blue ocean, Greece is an ideal destination for sun worshippers due to its year-round sunshine and abundance of luxury resorts.

Comprising the mainland and no less than 227 islands, whether you’re exploring ancient ruins in Athens or topping up the tan in Milos, an unforgettable honeymoon is guaranteed.

A world-class gastronomy scene is what unifies each region. Imagine a lazy lunch in the sun feasting on fresh seafood, creamy whipped feta dip and olives as big as your fist. Breathe in the Aegean's salty, sea air as you toast to the future with a delicious glass of local ouzo.

Where to stay:

Looking for movie-style romance? Head to Santorini – the blue and white island of dreams.

A stay at the Chromata is a must. Perched high on the top of the Santorini caldera, this sleek and serene hotel will resonate with lovers of a more minimalist style. Bright, white walls and linens contrast the vivid, blue ocean view from your suite’s veranda.

Sunsets too, are made even more spectacular due to the hotel’s exclusive, mountainside location, providing the perfect backdrop for starry-eyed evenings spent celebrating the start of married life.

7-nights in one of the Chromata’s dome-like Junior Suites come in at roughly £5,362.98 (July 2023).

How to get there:

Numerous UK airlines offer regular, direct flights to Santorini (and many other islands) from the UK throughout the summer and winter months. Flights from London, Manchester, Newcastle, Bristol and Birmingham all last approximately 4 hours.

When to go:

Greece is an ideal getaway for both summer and winter sun so you really can go year-round. However, September and October are great months for honeymooners due to warm temperatures, clear skies and slightly fewer crowds than busier July and August.

3. Mauritius

Fill your lungs with fresh, ocean air when you jet off to this picture-perfect island off the coast of Madagascar.

There’s more to this honeymoon holiday than sunbathing and swimming. Explore Mauritius by snorkel or scuba dive to discover the island’s majestic coral reefs and magical underwater world. Take a camel safari ride. Or spend an afternoon hiking in the Black River Gorges National Park admiring the island’s remarkable volcanic landscapes and unique wildlife scene.

Is there a more romantic setting for a holiday? We think not!

Where to stay:

With plenty of high-end hotel resorts to choose from, you’ll be spoiled for choice in this tropical paradise.

For something a little different, escape to the Kestrel Treehouse located next to the Black River for a dream-like break with bae.

Enjoy uninterrupted views of the Black River from your quirky, outdoor shower. Sip morning coffee high above the trees as you plan the day’s adventures. Then cook up a delicious feast by BBQ and toast to married life as you swing from oak barrels hung beneath the hut.

This terrific treetop lodge costs about £160 per night in the high season.

Add Air BnB vouchers to your registry.

How to get there:

Hop on a direct, 12-hour flight from London to Mauritius with Air Mauritius or British Airways.

When to go:

There’s not really a bad time to visit this honeymoon superhero destination. If we’re being picky, head there between October and April for beautiful sunshine with slightly less humidity than in the winter months.

4. The Seychelles

Home to some of the best luxury resorts in the world, sapphire blue waters and long stretches of white sand beaches – the Seychelles consistently deliver honeymoon holidays with that extra little ‘je ne sais quoi’.

You’ll find private island villas dotted sparingly along picturesque coastlines with unrivalled customer service. Foodies too will love the cool gastronomy scene where English, French and Creole cuisines combine.

A firm favourite with celebs, enjoy a blissful escape off the East Coast of Africa at one of many island resorts here.

Where to stay:

The Anantara Maia Seychelles Villas in Mahe is the epitome of all-inclusive honeymoon heaven.

Stay in one of just 30 secluded villas at this deluxe tropical resort.

Start your day with a sunrise yoga class followed by a refreshing dip in your private pool. Release any post-wedding tension with an oceanside couples’ massage at the spa. And feast on delicious local seafood at the romantic beachfront restaurant for lunch.

Did we mention you also receive your own ‘Villa Host’ that’s on hand 24/7 to take care of all your honeymoon-ing needs!

An unforgettable 7-night stay in their Ocean View Pool Villa will set you back a cool, £14,000 (July 2023). But you only have one honeymoon, right?

Start saving for your luxury honeymoon.

Flying from London to the Seychelles takes between 9 and 14 hours. Direct flights from London are regularly scheduled, as are connecting flights from many other big airports across the UK.

When to go:

The Seychelles guarantees warm temperatures all year long – yippee! For tip-top weather conditions, we’d suggest going between April and June or from September to November to avoid the rainy season and beat those crowds.

When to go:

Thailand is, of course, another year-round holiday hotspot. However, for cool, dry weather, we’d recommend jetting off between November and April for optimal conditions.

6. Hawaii

Adventure-seekers will get in the Aloha spirit with a honeymoon holiday in exotic Hawaii.

Dramatic mountain views, guaranteed sunshine and plenty of adrenaline-pumping activities attract couples from all over the world. One minute you’re working your tan on Honolulu beach, and the next you’re jumping out of a plane with unrivalled views of Hawaii’s luscious landscape.

A far cry from the grey, rainy skies of the UK that’s for sure!

For a honeymoon that beats to the sound of your own, unique rhythm, choose from six awesome islands for a Hawaiian adventure.

Where to stay:

For high-end luxury, stay at the Four Seasons Resort Maui - a top-rated, all-inclusive beachside resort that makes a truly idyllic honeymoon spot.

Enjoy a morning swim in their adults-only infinity pool. Work up a sweat (no, not just in bed) in their five-star fitness centre. And enjoy an evening cocktail in their lively lobby before heading out to sample culinary delights at celeb chef Wolfgang Puck’s resort-side restaurant.

Feeling fancy? Try one of their residential-style ‘Complete Suites’ with endless ocean views and your very own personal assistant! Talk about extravagance.

A 7-night stay in a standard double room with mountain views will set you back about £8,418.

Trust us, this hotel is worth saving for!

Fly direct to Honolulu from London in just under 18 hours. Alternatively, you can travel from London to California by plane in approximately 11 hours, followed by a shorter internal flight to Honolulu, Kahului (Maui), Kona (Big Island) or Lihue (Kauai).

Oh, and just remember Hawaii is a US state so be sure to check visa requirements before you fly!

When to go:

As with all tropical paradise destinations, you’ll want to avoid the rainy season. Honeymooners should look to visit Hawaii between May and September for warm weather and dry skies.

7. Italy

Like many of our honeymoon holiday hotlists, Italy is a timeless getaway destination that offers a wide range of romantic experiences.

Discover ancient treasures in cultural capital, Rome. Soak up in the sun by boat on the Amalfi coast. Or float down picture-perfect canals with your amore in Venice.

An Italian escape is hard to resist.

Don’t want to choose? Travelling across Italy is relatively hassle-free so why not plan the ultimate Italian honeymoon adventure by visiting multiple places in one trip?

For example, begin your vacation in the thriving metropolis of Milan before travelling by train to historical Florence. A quick flight to Positano will secure you a few days of relaxing in the Sorrento sunshine. Then finish off this trip of a lifetime with a charming stop in lovey-dovey capital of the world, Venice.

Where to stay:

Get a taste for ‘la dolce vita’ and live like a local in a traditional Tuscan Air BnB.

This 500-year-old, private villa is nestled within private gardens and surrounded by stunning views of quaint olive groves, rustic vineyards and never-ending Tuscan countryside.

Cook up a rich, Italian feast to enjoy from your veranda. Spend the day truffle hunting and tasting Chianti from world-class wineries. And explore the historic city of Florence, just a 20-minute drive away.

This rural Tuscan retreat costs approximately £2,700 for a 5-night stay.

How to get there:

Bag a bargain flight with a price-comparison website for cheap travel to numerous Italian airports. UK operators serve most of the country including Milan, Bologna, Rome, Venice, Verona, Naples and more.

When to go:

May to September is the perfect time to visit this Mediterranean gem.

Short on time? Italy makes a great minimoon destination too.
