Luxury Honeymoon Holiday Ideas

Getting married and going on honeymoon will be an unforgettable experience in any couple’s life. Therefore, you want such a special occasion to be as close to perfection as possible.

Whether it’s a relaxing beach holiday or a vacation full of exhilarating activities, a no-expense-spared trip will leave you with many long-lasting memories.

However, when it comes to choosing the style of holiday and indeed the destination, a newly married couple’s views can differ greatly. So to help lower the chances of an early marital rift check out Club Med holidays for some fantastic luxury honeymoon options.

Beach resort

One of the most common honeymoon holiday destinations is a relaxing beach resort. From the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean to the exotic seaside landscape of Mauritius, it is hard to argue against spending some quality time on the beach.

Before making a decision, it is advisable to check whether your chosen location is a family beach or one exclusively for couples. Several resorts by the sea will have various activities on offer, from learning how to surf to fishing excursions. So if you’re interested in more than just topping up the tan, find out what you can do in between relaxing with the sand between your toes.

Well being getaway

Going on honeymoon is about many things – not least treating yourself and appreciating the finer things in life. A holiday full of spa treatments, beauty therapy and even relaxation activities like yoga, will ensure you return home feeling refreshed.

Tailor-made wellbeing holidays with all-inclusive treatments will remove the possibility of any hidden costs or charges. However, there is always a danger that constant pampering and attention means you’ll never want to return home!

Activity holiday

Perhaps not an obvious choice for a honeymoon, an activity holiday can be luxurious, entertaining and fulfilling. Lounging on the beach or swimming in the hotel pool might seem like a waste of time for some (though we don’t know who), but it’s worth using your time well, too.

You’ll often find that activities like sailing – as well as sports, including tennis and golf – will be located in rather grand surroundings, providing a high-level of luxury and affluence. Other activities you may consider include horse riding, mountain biking and water sports.

Ski resort

Another action-packed holiday aimed at adrenaline junkies, jetting off to a ski resort will give snow-loving newlyweds the chance to enjoy this pastime. With ski holidays usually being one of the most expensive types of vacation available, it is a perfect opportunity to splash out on a luxurious chalet complete with stunning mountainous views – and perhaps even a hot tub.

Several prestige ski resorts designed specifically with couples in mind do exist and there’s always the option to choose a package that includes details such as accommodation, food, lift passes, equipment hire, lessons and even winter sports insurance.

Bedroom Designs for Newlyweds

As a newly married couple, one of the things you may be embarking upon after your big day and romantic honeymoon is getting your marital home into shape. Working together to come up with mutually agreeable designs for various areas of the home can be quite exciting and fun.

When it comes to the bedroom design, there are a number of different design ideas and options that are perfectly suited for newlyweds. Of course, this depends on the tastes and preferences of both parties, and sometimes compromises may have to made to ensure that both of you get to enjoy the design and overall finish of your bedroom.

Four bedroom design ideas for newlyweds

As a newly married couple, it is important to discuss design ideas for the bedroom, as this will help to ensure that you both love the result and that your first argument as newlyweds is not about the choice of decor!

Some popular design options and ideas for newly married couples to consider when it comes to the bedroom, include the following.

Romantic theme: the natural choice for many newlyweds is a romantic theme for the bedroom. This is a great choice if you want to turn the bedroom into a sensuous, appealing, relaxing space, where you can enjoy quality time together in attractive surroundings. Choosing rich and romantic colours, in materials such as lace and satin, and furniture such as a four-poster bed or love seat, can all help to add to the romantic ambiance of a room.

Chic and modern: many newlyweds are young in terms of age, and as such, may prefer chic, modern styles. You may therefore want to consider a very contemporary design for your bedroom, bringing in items such as a leather bed base, slick white or modern black furniture such as bedside tables, spacious built-in wardrobes and a large, flat-screen TV mounted on the wall, so you can be entertained while enjoying breakfast in bed.

Cool and fun: as newlyweds, you may have limited time to enjoy being a couple before kids come along and you have to become ultra-sensible. So, you might want to take the opportunity to have fun while you can, deciding to carry this through to the design of your bedroom. Fun and hip colours, exciting wall decor, cuddly toys and cool beanbags are among the additions you can have as part of your design.

Luxurious: if you’ve spent a couple of weeks staying at a luxurious suite as part of your honeymoon, returning back to a standard, bland bedroom can be a real blow. So, you might want to consider keeping the luxury theme going by decorating your bedroom accordingly. Crisp linens, classic furniture, plush carpets, and eye-catching artwork can all help to add a touch of luxury.

By seeking out some great bedroom offers, you can decorate your bedroom just the way you want it without spending a fortune.

Tips on finding affordable accommodation for your honeymoon

Going on honeymoon is sure to be one of the most memorable experiences you’ll ever have. As a newly married couple, you get to spend total quality time together without having to think about anything but your own comfort.

Although you want the best location, accommodation and activities, the cost of the wedding probably means you’ll be on a tight budget. However, there are ways you can find affordable accommodation and still enjoy a fabulous honeymoon.

Package deal
 
It may be cheaper to purchase accommodation as part of a package holiday deal. An all-inclusive package will also mean you don’t have to worry about extras like food, drink and entertainment.

Unfortunately, in recent years tour operators have found they’ve increasingly had to cancel holidays owing to bankruptcy. In every eventuality, you can still make an accident claim abroad for damages and compensation.

The Citizen’s Advice Bureau can also provide advice and information about booking a package holiday.

Shop around

Use every avenue and resource at your disposal to find the best possible accommodation. This will include travel agents, holiday brochures and online comparison sites.First-hand feedback on review websites will also give you a good idea on the best and the worst accommodation available.

You may think you’ve found the ideal accommodation early on in your search, only to find the same location somewhere else for significantly less money.

Make enquiries

Certain operators and hotels will offer a honeymoon package aimed specifically at newly married couples. So if you’ve found your ideal location, get in contact before making a booking to see whether they have any special deals.

Honeymoon packages will either include money saving deals like seven nights for the price of six, or they might give you an option for a lavish meal with champagne and extra spa treatments for an additional cost. Therefore be careful of what the deal actually includes.

Don’t be fussy with the room
 
If you’re not fussed about the room and intend to spend most of your time at the beach, by the pool or in the spa, then don’t spend out for unnecessary extras.

A smaller room or one without a view will be cheaper and you can usually opt out of these options during booking. This will sound obvious, but make sure your room has a double bed, instead of being stuck with two singles.

Say that you’re newlyweds
 
Once you’ve arrived at your hotel or chosen accommodation, tell the staff you are newlyweds and are on your honeymoon. Although no hotel is obliged to provide you with something extra, you may get lucky with a room upgrade or complimentary extras.

What’s more, review sites are growing in popularity and their importance for a hotel is increasing. If you promise to write a favourable review, you may well receive something beneficial in return.
