Sorry, we just can’t stop!  Today we are digging a little deeper!   Now we know that there is nothing better than being curled up on the sofa, snuggled in your blanket, sipping a of cup tea in front of the glowing open fire and dreaming of faraway destinations.  Time to make those dreams a reality.  Here are 3 life-changing, mind blowing honeymoon destinations.

First up as a self-confessed beach lover is The Maldives. A place of beauty, tranquillity and serenity.

The Maldives

The sun soaked island is perfect for any time of year. You can walk hand in hand on the soft white sand and splash around on the shore while feeling the tropical warm Indian ocean between your toes.  Maybe get a little adventurous and go scuba diving to witness all the beauty the ocean has to offer.

During my search for the perfect place to stay I used my trusted friend ‘TripAdvisor‘; it’s my go to source to get real reviews and experiences. I stumbled on a stunning hotel called ‘Gili Lankanfushi’ and I’m sure you will agree it is out of this world.  You are about to embark on not just a honeymoon but a journey. You will experience luxury like never before. You will experience butler service to ensure complete relaxation.   Gili Lankanfushi has 45 over water villas, all secluded. You can choose from a Villa suite, Residence, Crusoe Residence, a spa suite or my favorite – The Private Reserve.

Now as much as I love relaxing in the sun with a good motivational book, my other half is very much the opposite. He, of course, likes to relax however he has a burning desire to do something a little more out of the ordinary. To satisfy his dream honeymoon destination next on my list would be a Safari.

A key part of married life I’m told is being able to communicate and compromise. The idea of not having Turquoise waters and the most perfect soft sand with the golden sun glistening on my sun deprived skin (I live in the UK) makes me very nervous, however, I have found the perfect Luxury Travel Specialist ‘Mahlatini’ who can combine luxury and adventure and believe me, your heart will be skipping a beat.

Mahlatini offers wilderness romance. You can choose Savannahs, Balloon Safaris, Stunning sunsets, star-filled skies, awe-inspiring wildlife and more adventures than you thought possible plus luxurious accommodations to ensure your honeymoon will be a talking point for years to come.

You will see when you take a peek at their website that they offer a number of honeymoon itineraries, and the one I was really drawn to is 10 days in Zimbabwe.

The start of your adventure is the Victoria Falls Lodge Safari which has been voted ‘best safari lodge’ in Zimbabwe for 17 consecutive years. If you recall; we mentioned Victoria Falls yesterday.   This stunning waterfall is on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe.  The property overlooks elephant, buffalo, impala and Kudu.   Your memories will be built from guided safari walks, private bush dinners, bungee jumping for the adrenalin junkies, games drive, golf, river/dinner cruises and white water rafting.

How will you spend your day?


Let me whisk you away now to the what I would consider one of the most magical places (but very cold) to honeymoon in…….Lapland.

Lapland takes me to a fuzzy place.  There is a warm glow around my heart.  I have never been but it brings back memories from my childhood, memories of Christmas.  I mean who wouldn’t want to see Santa Claus on their honeymoon?

The snowy landscape and crisp air gives you the perfect excuse (not that you need one) to get close and snuggle in to each other arms. Pure Romance.

I would like to draw your attention to the Wexas Travel. Their experts will be able to put together a 4-night experience full of romance and adventure. They are the experts in offering a personal service and helping you tailor the honeymoon of a lifetime.

On the last night of your honeymoon you can spend it in a glass Igloo watching the wonders of the night sky, the dancing Northern lights.

Hotel Kakslauttanen, has an igloo village in Finnish Lapland.   All of the igloos are made of glass and are designed so that the windows do not frost or steam up.  Equipped with a bed and bathroom, you have all that you need to cozy up with your spouse and observe the stars or the northern lights.
