We know we’ve given you some advice on picking the perfect honeymoon in the past but guess what? This week is National Marriage Week. If you are planning your wedding or hoping for a Valentines proposal, now couldn’t be a better time to start thinking about exotic honeymoon destinations and weddings abroad.
According to honeymoon company Sovereign over 90% of young Brits aspire to be married and have the excitement of a luxury honeymoon in a far flung destination. It’s therefore helped us come up with a range of places perfect for that ideal post wedding holiday.
If you like it hot.
Cancun in Mexico is hot all year round with an average temperature of 25C, and this destination is perfect for couples who like their nightlife too, with an amazing choice of bars and clubs to keep you up well into the early hours.
Try the Excellence Riviera Cancun, Mexico, an adult only resort, which has a selection of gourmet restaurants, swim-up spa, live music and 10 bars serving colourful cocktails. All honeymooners will receive a champagne breakfast during their stay, fresh fruit and a bottle of wine.
If you want some European Romance
Cyprus is one of the most romantic countries in Europe (thanks to Aphrodities rock) and is said to have around 300 days on sunshine a year. Visit ancient Greek sites or chill on one of many beaches, as well as visiting the unspoilt beaches of the Northern side of the country.
Try the Le Meridien Limassol Resort & Spa, Cyprus, which has been voted as the ‘World’s Leading Spa Resort’ for three years.
If you want some ancient culture and chilling time
Egypt is the ideal honeymoon destination for honeymooners seeking a mix of culture and relaxation. Take a plane ride to Cairo (around £100 each) and visit the pyramids before heading back to Sharm el Sheikh for some sun, sea and scuba diving.
Try the Four Seasons Resort, Sharm el Sheikh
For a honeymoon against the backdrop of the warm waters of the Red Sea, this hotel is ideal. Designed as an Arabian Palace you can relax and soak up the Egyptian sun or try scuba diving. Honeymooners receive a 50 minute couples massage in the indulgent spa and VIP treatment during their stay.
