The Hawaii Experience at Maui
If you’re heading to Maui for a Haiwaiian honeymoon, you’ll be able to try an unforgettable helicopter ride in the sky, experience a Maui luau, get couple’s spa massages and other Hawaiian treats.
West Maui is a popular beach vacation spot as it’s filled with sights to see and interesting activities. If you don’t mind fully tourist spots that are a little on the commercial side, drive to the sandy Kahana and Napili beaches. There’s tons of vacation resorts to choose from, such as Napili Kai Beach Resort, Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa and The Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas. Luau, a Hawaiian party often accompanied with dance and fire performances are also available at most restaurants and hotels.
For a quieter seaside honeymoon, find the stretch of beach at Oneloa Bay which is around 10 minutes away from Makaluapuna point. You’ll be able to sit back and relax with your feet in the sand, and take gorgeous photos of the sea.
The Tropical Beaches of Bali, Indonesia
If you’re seeking the most romantic honeymoon getaway in Bali, try Ubud. Here, intimate candlelit dinners and couple’s massages await you.
The Semaya at Banjur Baung, Desa Sayan is a good couple’s resort to stay at when you’re on a romantic beach vacation. It hosts 100 candles dinners including private candlelight dinners in villas or beside the river. You can even have dinner in Ubud with the love of your life in a birds nest canopy, surrounded by lush greenery. Dine on fine western dishes, accompanied by the sound of the Ayung River Valley flowing beneath the canopy.
Sanur beach is a great honeymoon destination because it’s close to Ubud but isn’t as busy as Kuta. During your romantic vacation, try activities like surfing lessons or head out to a beach club for the day. You and your other half could also admire exquisite flowers in the Bali Orchid Gardens, a relaxing landscaped garden located 3km north of Sanur along Jl Ngurah Rai.
Afterwards, you can spend time at the child-free Kejora Suites, a relaxing luxury boutique hotel, perfect for romantic vacations for two. The concierge can arrange a few trips to temples, to Lembongan Island, or to explore the local art scene on Balinese Art Day, which includes dressing up in traditional Balinese clothes and Balinese dancing lessons.
The Beautiful Shores of Seychelles
An island blessed with a year-long tropical climate, Seychelles is the home of one of the largest coral islands, Aldabra Atoll (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). It’s also a beautiful tropical honeymoon destination. You’ll be able to see giant land tortoises, colonial frigatebirds and exotic flowers near stunning, untouched beaches.
And if you’re looking for a quiet island getaway to soak up the sun with your hubby or wife, rent a villa on a private island. You can pick from a few popular islands such as the Cousine Island, Praslin, Frégate Island or Denis Island.
During your island vacation, be sure to take a walk through the special reserve on Cousine Island. There are many endemic Seychelles birds such as the Seychelles Warbler, Fody and Magpie Robin, located in the bird sanctuary on Cousine Island. On the other hand, Praslin is the second largest island and has a wide range of hotels and resorts for couples.
Named after the frigatebird, Frégate Island is the perfect tropical getaway for those who appreciate privacy and tranquility. Likewise, Denis Island has white sandy beaches, making it the ideal island vacation spot for those who want to try out exciting water activities such as surfing, snorkeling and diving spots. Pick the tropical honeymoon destinations you’ll visit depending on your budget and what you prefer to do.
Have you ever dreamt of exploring tropical island getaways by renting a boat? On a yacht, you can have a relaxing honeymoon exploring many islands dotting the Seychelles Archipelago, or even have a grand time fishing. Staying in the Seychelles isn’t for budget travellers though, so it’s a good idea to keep an eye out for honeymoon packages and promotions before you go.
See The Best of Bahamas
Romantic sunsets, wild nights and pigs in the seas, Bahamas is one of the best caribbean vacation spots offering just the right amount of fun and attraction for newlyweds to whet their appetite for more action.
Listed as one of the top 10 water parks in the world, the Atlantis water park on Paradise Island would be an exciting tropical honeymoon destination with private cabanas, pools and slides for a good splashing fun. Take a leap of faith down the Mayan Temple slide (a replica of The Temple of Doom from Indiana Jones), into a steep tunnel where you can see sharks swimming around you and exit into The Cenote.
Enjoy your romantic island getaway by stopping by local restaurants to taste their fried conch fritters, spicy lobsters and other Caribbean seafood. You can also hop to a bar for fresh fruit shakes, the local kalik beers, sky juice (a mixture of gin, coconut water and condensed milk) or delicious rum.
For a cool vacation, open your eyes to odd sights such as pigs swimming in the ocean. These adorable pigs swim around Exuma Cays, Bahamas, at an uninhabited island. Their origin remains a mystery since these pigs are not native creatures. You can feed them fruits and vegetables or rent a yacht to watch them paddle in the soft lapping waves.
For an affordable tropical vacation, travelling to Bahamas during the off-season will be the cheapest. However, there will be less choices on where to go as some of the tropical island getaways are closed during the hurricane seasons. On the bright side, you won’t be competing with other vacationers.
