A luxurious honeymoon doesn’t necessarily need to be all desert islands and white sandy beaches. Sometimes it can be a great chance to get off the grid and experience something totally new and boundary pushing.
The Six Senses Zighy Bay, Oman
The Six Senses Zighy Bay, Oman offers the unique chance to paraglide into the resort as well as a variety of amenities and extras for honeymoon couples. Depending on the length of the stay, couples will be treated to a romantic bath ritual, an hour-long spa treatment, and a three course meal at the Spice Market, allowing you to immerse yourself in Middle Eastern tradition.
Geographically, its location has been compared with the Nordic fjords, cushioned between a towering mountain range and brilliant white sandy beaches.
And the culinary options available are plentiful, with wine and cheese tasting, in-villa dining, beachfront barbecues or the option to choose a location around the resort for an idyllic romantic soiree.
To celebrate your union in tranquil seclusion, this is the resort for you.
Gili Lankanfushi, Maldives
For a more active retreat, couples should try Gili Lankanfushi, situated in a sparkling lagoon in the Maldives.
Centred around an idyllic coral island, home to the resort’s shared buildings including a spa and gymnasium, jetties lead out to forty fairy-tale-esque villas, where couples will find their own private paradise.
Showered with gifts, amenities, and the option of a dolphin cruise depending on the length of your stay, guests can literally step down into the calm blue waters surrounding their villas and, as you’d expect, a whole range of water and land-based sports are on offer.
An exceedingly romantic destination, its emphasis on natural construction materials truly make it stand out among other Maldives resorts. Its popularity with honeymooners is reinforced by a free half board offer for the bride.
Rwanda / Mauritius
Take two of Africa’s most contrasting destinations; intrepid Rwanda and the idyllic island of Mauritius, which make for an unusual honeymoon with the perfect blend of adventure and relaxation. Start off in Rwanda’s northern Parc Nationals de Volcans in search of mighty mountain gorillas, then fly south to the beautiful island of Mauritius for some beach downtime at the exclusive Oberoi Resort.
