Choosing where you’re going to spend your first holiday together as a married couple can be a daunting task. Take your time deciding on the perfect destination for you both, whether it is a beach holiday in the Maldives, a ski adventure in the Alps or a wildlife safari in Tanzania.
It’s important that you both agree what you want from this once-in-a-lifetime holiday. Whilst initially you may want some poolside downtime recuperating after the big day, once you’ve recharged your batteries you might be looking for exciting experiences to share together.
Any couples with a favourite activity such as skiing, diving or trekking should make sure their desired destination will deliver the best possible experience. Don't try to do too much, though. A fantastic combination holiday is a safari and beach honeymoon such as a wildlife experience in South Africa followed by some relaxation by the water in Mauritius.
Couples should aim to start organising their trip as early as possible to limit stress induced by the planning process. Booking six to eight months or more in advance can ensure you get the best choice, too, from rooms to executive tours. Planning ahead allows time to budget accordingly and get the necessary documents together. Brides must remember to get a new passport if they wish to travel under their new married name. And don’t forget to check what the climate is like in your preferred destination during your honeymoon period.
Adults-only all-inclusive resorts are a great choice for your honeymoon such as The Club Barbados Resort & Spa in Barbados or the Couples Negril in Jamaica. Honeymoon packages can include a romantic dinner on the beach, complimentary massages or breakfast in bed.
Above all else when looking for your perfect honeymoon it’s important to have fun. Be creative and adventurous in what you’re looking for. Speak to an expert at DialAFlight and they will be able to suggest some fantastic locations that you may well not have thought of.
