10 Of The World's Most Luxurious Honeymoon Destinations
For many, going on a honeymoon will likely be the only time they will experience the luxurious wonders of a five-star holiday. However, some holidays are out of reach of even the savviest of honeymoon budgeters. Just take these ten places.
Other-worldly and mythical in their appearance, visitors to such locations are among a privileged few that see money as no object. With that said, here are idyllic places that would make perfect honeymoon destinations should you ever be able to afford them.
1. Bora Bora, French Polynesia
A favorite among the jet-setting glitterati, Bora Bora's azure waters and perennial sunshine in the remote and sequestered islands of French Polynesia make a trip here a must for anyone fortunate enough to have more money than they'll ever know what to do with.
With many luxurious hotels to choose from, most accommodation comes in the mold of private beach huts and villas, but Le Meridan's uber-funky huts are perhaps the best. All include glass floors that look down onto the clear-blue seas, while the majestic and iconic Mount Otemanu can be seen directly ahead.
2. St. Lucia
Cheaper than Bora Bora but still sickeningly expensive, St.Lucia on a budget can be done, but if you want the best experience when staying on this lush and verdant island, then you certainly won't feel short-changed should you decide to splash the cash.
The best hotels are usually the ones nearest to the black-sanded beaches and beautiful Creole villages, with all of Ladera Resort's suites providing awe-inspiring views of the Pitons and its steel blue waters.
3. The Maldives
If the Maldives were a child, it would be the most spoiled on Earth; such is the beauty strewn across the 1,000 islands. Of those, 200 are inhabited, while 105 are resorts. After all, tourism is the most lucrative part of their economy, and with the islands' natural beauty, that's hardly surprising. Coral reefs, ashen sands, turquoise waters... The sights are priceless, and the sunsets are no exception as burning oranges and hazy purples mix to create colors that wouldn't look out of place on a Van Gogh canvas.
For the best hotels, the lists are endless, with each five-star hotel offering a unique take on luxury, but if you want a help-in-hand, we recommend a stay at Niyama Maldives. With an underwater nightclub and a restaurant only accessible by boat, there's a great danger that you might never want to leave.
4. Key West, Florida
The sunsets seen in Flordia's Key West are nothing short of spectacular and have become a staple part of the visiting experience. There is also a nightly festival to celebrate it which takes place in Mallory Square, which regularly attracts live performances from musicians and street dancers so it would almost be an insult not to take up accommodation befitting of one of America's most scenic locations.
One such place to stay in is The Reach, a grand five-star hotel with sweeping views of the pale sands and turquoise waters.
Housing 150 guest rooms, the place professes to provide the paradisiacal beauty of the Caribbean while offering a 'delightfully effervescent feel of the Mediterranean with a cultured intimate setting.'
