You know that here at 5 Star Wedding Directory we love a romantic, luxury honeymoon escape. Bora Bora, Hawaii, Dubai… but if you’re not the beach type, we’ve found five of our favourite alternative luxury honeymoons, that is more than a little bit special.
Hot springs and northern lights in Iceland
With beautiful scenic lush greenery and the most impressive craggy rocky landscapes, Iceland is something of a natural gem. Walk volcanic trails through mossy rocks, take a dip in the warm mineral springs and gaze up at Aurora Borealis (the Northern Lights) – the ultimate in romantic lighting!
Dracula’s castle in Transylvania
Now this one might sound a little creepy, but Transylvania is beautiful, with wild wetlands, quaint cobbled streets and ancient forests that you would expect to find sweet little pixies hiding in! If you’re into a little bit of the Gothic, or just a fan of Twilight, taking a trip to Romania would be an excellent choice.
Delve into the jungle
Have you thought of a jungle adventure in the Amazon rainforest? A luxury honeymoon cabin, nestled amongst the treetops gives the best view of the rainforest’s wildlife as 90% of life is found in the rainforest’s canopy. From the breathtaking Amazon sunrise to the clear starry night sky, this could be the perfect honeymoon you never knew you always wanted.
Heart shaped paradise in Australia
Could there be a more romantic destination than a heart-shaped island?! Exclusively yours for your entire stay, Makepeace island in Australia is a sanctuary of seclusion. With a lagoon pool, tennis court, spa, theatre and bar, this resort really does provide everything you need – just the two of you!
Cherry blossom and tranquillity in Nara
Swathes of Japan turn pink in the spring with the beautiful cherry blossom, and Nara is the most peaceful place to enjoy nature’s confetti! Enjoy the heavenly scent whilst exploring parks, palaces, shrines and even a castle. But don’t miss the sight of 30,000 blossom trees that cover the hills in the Yoshino area shedding their petals.
