It's official: you're off the market. Planning a wedding can be pretty stressful but if there's one thing you can really look forward to, it's your honeymoon. You can finally relax and unwind with that special someone and feel the weight off your shoulders knowing your wedding is well and truly over. The fun part is deciding where to go. We've unpacked the most romantic places around the world to suit any honeymoon style.
Destination: Ubud, Bali
Best for: Relaxation with a bit of exploring.
Hotel: Bisma Eight
After your big day (trust us, it'll be big) you'll be pretty exhausted and definitely in need of some R&R. Ubud has everything you need to unwind with your new spouse: massages, infinity pools overlooking the rainforest, romantic dinners and even outdoor showers. You'll be treated like royalty with Instagram-worthy breakfasts and overall hospitality from the lovely people in Ubud. If you want a luxury holiday without the cost, Ubud could be the destination for you.
Destination: Osaka, Japan
Best for: Eating, exploring, shopping
Hotel: The Bridge
Osaka is a must-visit destination if you're planning your honeymoon in Japan. Take an evening stroll to Dotonburi and feast on Japanese street food, including Japanese octopus balls, Takoyaki, visit the beautiful homeware stores on Orange street and act like teenagers for a day at Universal Studios. Only a one hour Shinkansen from Tokyo and a truly beautiful city.
Destination: Waikiki, Hawaii
Budget: Mid-range - expensive
Best for: Relaxation, adventure.
Hotel: The Modern, Honolulu
Hawaii has always been a honeymoon hot-spot. Endless beach views, cocktails by the pool and scenic hikes are just some of the ways you can explore Hawaii as a married couple. It is a bit pricy for food and accommodation (especially if you're into 4-5 star accommodation and want an ocean view) but has a great mix of adventure and chill-out time. You can even extend your holiday and explore America too.
Destination: Santorini, Greece
Budget: Pretty pricy
Best for: Romantics. Beautiful scenery. One week.
Santorini is one of the most romantic places in the world. White washed villas line the cliff overlooking the Mediterranean sea and boast stunning sea views. This island is a romantic couple's dream. You'll be wrapped up in the Greek culture, travel around town by donkey and enjoy a kiss at the world-famous Oia (known for it's beautiful sunsets). It's expensive, but worth it. If you're going to Europe for your honeymoon, add Santorini to the list.
Destination: Cabo, Mexico
Best for: Relaxation, exploring and food
Hotel: Playa Grande Resort
If you love Mexican food and relaxing by the beach, Cabo could be the place for you. Whale watching, sunset cruises and infinity pools are just some of the romantic things you can do together, but if you prefer a bit of exploring - city tours, mountain biking and water sports will get you and your new spouse out of the pool. Keep in mind if you live in Australia it takes around 30 hours to travel to Cabo so you may want to stop somewhere in between.
Destination: Tasmania, Australia
Best for: Hiking, exploring
Hotel: Macq 01
Explore the beauty of Tasmania with your loved one and get wrapped up in the beautiful nature and simplicity. Put your sneakers on and go for a walk around Cradle Mountain, enjoy the scenery while you unwind with an open-air bath, and hire a car for a scenic road trip. Great all year round and only a short flight from Melbourne.
Destination: Puglia, Italy
Best for: Relaxing, exploring
Ah, Italy. We all know of Rome, Venice and the Amalfi Coast, but there's another region which has so much to offer for honeymooners: Puglia. Explore the beautiful mountain-top city of Ostuni, enjoy a day on the beach at the famous Polignano a Mare, stumble down the cobble-stone streets or devour one of their famous focaccias (Le Focacceria is our pick!)
