Romance in stone.Going on a honeymoon is a once in a lifetime experience which should be remembered for the rest of your lives. However, you don’t want your honeymoon to be remembered for all the wrong reasons! Take care to spend ample time finding the perfect location to begin your lives together in married bliss. What started out as the beginning could very well set the stage for the final scene if you have chosen the wrong destination for a romantic getaway.

Altogether too many couples choose the bridal suite at popular hotels only to find that they are not afforded any peace or quality time alone. It is nice to think about having room service in so that you can stay in your suite, but what happens when the people down the hall get rowdy or the walls are paper thin? Have you thought about what it would be like to book a holiday cottage at some exotic location? You may not get room service but you can enjoy time together undisturbed by the everyday world you are about to return to. Here are some honeymoon holiday destinations you might want to consider.

Exuma, Caribbean Honeymoon in Exuma, Caribbean

Some couples want a bit of excitement outdoors on their honeymoons and so they choose to rent a villa near the ocean. Although not highly publicised, Exuma in the Caribbean is the perfect location for a romantic honeymoon. Here you can do anything from diving in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean with Dive Exuma to dining under the stars in the evening.

This is your honeymoon after all so you will want to take in a bit of night life as well. Great Exuma has some enticing ‘out islands’ as well and on one such as these you will find what is being acclaimed as the best place to sample Bahamian cuisine and get a taste of such exotic delicacies as turtle steak, cracked conch or curried chicken. Eddie’s Edgewater Club even sports live performances of ‘rake and scrape’ music and islander cocktails.

Haiku, USA Honeymoon in  Haiku, USA

For some reason everyone from any part of the world thinks about Hawaii as the idyllic spot for a honeymoon. They envision sandy beaches, luaus with women in grass skirts and tropical drinks under the moonlight. Yes, Haiku does have all of that and more but what about spending a little time in the wild? Haiku is home to one of the most unique animal shelters in the world and many couples adore spending the day with rescued donkeys, rabbits, peahens, cats and even deer and chickens.

The Leilani Farm Sanctuary is a perfect place to get up close to some of the most amazing creatures in Hawaii. Who knows, it might even inspire you to start a family to bring here one day! Close the day out with a taste of Asian cuisine off the beaten path at Hana Hou Café and dine with the locals. This is an experience you will not want to miss.

Koh Samui, Thailand Honeymoon in  Koh Samui, Thailand

Although the last thing on your mind may be food at this point in your life, Thailand is a diner’s paradise as everything is delicately light but oh so tangy. There is plenty to do in Koh Samui, Thailand but make sure when you are out dining at places like Nikki Beach or Mitra Samui you understand what they mean by ‘Native Thai’ seasoning. It is hot beyond your wildest imaginings and you are here for another kind of heat!

During the day you may wish to visit the Samui Aquarium or Tiger Zoo which are renowned for providing a glimpse of Thai aquatic and land species. At night couples like to have a drink or two at clubs such as Bar Ice Samui which is located in nearby Bophut, to the north of the island.

Honeymoon in  Bali, Indonesia

Long known as one of the most exotic of tropical locations, Bali is ideal for a holiday of any type and for any length. Honeymoons in Bali are especially thrilling as it is a land beyond beautiful. Rent a holiday cottage so that you can be alone in the evenings within this exceedingly busy area of Indonesia but don’t forget that you need to take home memories of the land and its people!

There are so many attractions in Bali that you may wish to take an extended honeymoon here. Perhaps the best way to find something of interest is to take one of their famous tours such as those offered by Bali Island Horse. Whether you spend your days at water parks such as Waterbom Bali or on a more traditional tour, relax in your honeymoon cottage sipping tropical drinks and enjoying the wonderful person you have chosen to spend the rest of your life with. This is the stuff memories are made of.

Dorsoduro, Italy Honeymoon in  Dorsoduro, Italy

Ah, amore! Love Italian style is perhaps experienced in lesser-known areas of the country. Everyone wants to visit the Vatican City or the catacombs in Rome, but what about Dorsoduro in Northern Italy? It may not sound familiar but Dorsoduro is actually one of the six regions, sestieri, within the city of Venice.

What could be more romantic than a honeymoon holiday villa in Venice with moonlit journeys down the canal on a gondola? There is probably nothing more romantic than touring the city by night along the most famous canals in the world. Seeing the Palaces of Dorsoduro is a sight you will never forget. If you want romance, Italy is the place to find it!
