Love you to the Honeymoon and back...

12th February 2018 Destinations

Dear Turtle Lovebirds,

Planning your romantic honeymoon is one of life’s greatest moments. But the problem is that if often comes at the same time as the organisation of the biggest event of all times, aka your wedding, when you’re juggling parents and in-laws, petits fours and the fortune teller for the weather… while starving to death to fit in your beautiful attire, that you still have to pick.

Well, guess what? You can relax on one thing, your honeymoon! For the rest, good luck. Your turtle team has pre-selected, especially for you, a few mind-blowing honeymoon tips from our incredible community. Hang in there, it’s worth it!

Inspiringly yours,

Your Turtle team

InterContinental Bora Bora Resort Thalasso Spa / Bora Bora, French Polynesia

@Dal

“We stayed here for our honeymoon. This place is heaven. Definitely one of the best hotels on the island! It’s expensive but worth the experience. Make sure to get an overwater bungalow and don’t miss the stingrays feeding every day at 2pm.

Gili Lankanfushi Maldives on Lankafushi Island, Maldives

@clkung

“We were looking for a honeymoon resort that didn’t feel like a ‘resort’. Somewhere that was understated, private and close to some good surfing. With only 45 rooms, it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. Unpretentious luxury and impeccable service. Small slice of paradise.”

 

Belmond Villa San Michele, Italy

@holly

“Villa San Michele is the most romantic hotel near Florence, and is located in the hills of Fiesole just 15 minutes out of town. Highly recommended for honeymoons, this is a great spot to watch the sun set while sipping a local vino.”

Mount Abu in Rajasthan, India

@Céline

“The number one destination for Indian honeymooners. They come to the mountains to escape the summer heat.”

Ysaka Shrine in Kyoto, Japan

@antrob

“One of the many shrines with the added benefit of both tourists and honeymooning couples dressed up as geishas.”

Mkulumadzi Cottage / Malawi

@holly

“Majete Safari at Mkulumadzi Lodge is where you’ll see Malawi’s largest selection of animals. Go for a morning game drive where you might have a picnic breakfast with an elephant, or a boat safari where you’ll see an abundance of alligators and hippos.”

Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania

@AlexisLaRoche

“This place is a paradise for a honeymoon, and real haven for animals!”

Aitutaki, Cook Islands

@Céline

“Honeymoon island is a true island paradise. This uninhabited island has beautiful clear turquoise waters and white sandy beaches. A must if you’re searching for a true paradise on earth.”
