Top honeymoon resorts on islands

As honeymoon holidays go, no location works better than an island resort, with beaches, blue water and the sense of intimate privacy that only a small island can offer.

1. Divi Aruba All-Inclusive

This is probably the loveliest little island-strip in all of the Caribbean, with pristine beaches and boutique shopping along its main road. The resort commands an entire mile of white sand, with a choice of the azure Caribbean or the two resort-pools just a hop away. In addition, an ocean-view room, several fine-dining venues, beach and pool bars, a spa/fitness centre and free bicycles for island-touring, will make your honeymoon feel truly special. Book into a room in Aruba and have a great time with your mate. Know more about Divi Aruba All Inclusive pricing and other factors before making the booking.

2. Palm Hotel and Spa

Mauritius’s little sister, Reunion Island, provides a sense of solitude and peace like no other island, perfect for romantic-twosome getaway. Situated close to stunning world heritage natural spots like the Cirque of Cilaos and the active but peaceful volcano Piton de la Fournaise, this resort kisses the blue waters of the Bay de Grand’Anse amidst majestic cliffs. The grandeur of the natural beauty all around is matched only by the impeccable hospitality and service of the resort. If you wish to relax with your mate and wish to have some fun time, book into Palm Hotel and Spa. This fabulous hotel and spa is located in Petite Ile. Getting special discounts as honeymooners.

3. Raffles Praslin

Eighty-six exclusive villas dot the length of Anse Takamaka Beach on Praslin Island, Seychelles, with the endless ocean on one side, and lush, water-fall ridden hills on the other; nature rarely gets more splendid than this. With local and Med-inspired cuisine as dining options, or the Danzil and Takamaka lounge for exotic cocktails, Raffles’ hospitality too, rarely gets more splendid than this. Nature walks, scuba-diving and endless sun-kissed beaches, this is the stuff honeymoons are made of. If you have always dreamt of a honeymoon in the arms of nature, book into Raffles Praslin Seychelles rooms. They have all modern facilities and amenities.

4. Adaaran Prestige Ocean Villas

Bright-hued water-villas look out over one of nature’s favourite sights: powder white sand and an impossibly blue ocean. Four restaurants and three bars satisfy any thirst and palette. The Coconut Spa sucks you into plush cocoon of wellness and serenity. Surfing and scuba-diving lessons are on offer, if you are looking to add to your skill-set. Backdrop all of this with the world”s finest sunsets, and you won’t need to travel any further for the honeymoon of a lifetime. Savour the wonderful mornings and delightful sunsets from your room in Adaaran Prestige Ocean Villas, Maldives. The moments will remain most beautiful in your memories as a couple.

5. Mykonos Grand

What makes this, arguably, the finest resort in all of Greece, is the range of value-added services: an ATV ride across Mykonos with the chef’s delights in a picnic-basket, or a boat to a secluded beach, for your very own candle-light dinner; a yoga/pilates session, in a stone amphitheatre; a session at the Althea Spa Centre that will leave you feeling like a Greek God and Goddess.
Seclusion, exclusivity and luxury on tap: this is the best of Greece in one beautiful package. Plan your stay at Mykonos Grand Myconos well in advance so that you get to choose from the multitude of rooms at different price ranges. Check the facilities and make payment only once you are sure you have got what you are looking for.

Insider Tip:

Most resorts will require a copy of the marriage certificate (or at least the wedding card), in order for you to avail of the special honeymoon deals, so don’t forget to pack this document.
