Planning a luxury honeymoon is a challenging proposition. There are so many destinations to choose from, each offering a very different experience, and of course you want a romantic honeymoon that you'll remember forever! But whether you are looking for a desert island retreat or a cultural city break, an ultra luxury experience or an unspoilt wildlife holiday, there are some countries that are just made for a luxury honeymoon - here are five of the best...

The Maldives

Perfect For: A Desert Island Escape

A common dream for a luxury honeymoon is to find some deserted desert island getaway, where you and your other half can while away your days on empty white sand beaches. Of course, desert islands tend to be low on luxury essentials, such as restaurants, spas...and hotels! The next best thing is to go on a tailor made honeymoon to the Maldives. Consisting of over a thousand islets and atolls, this island nation combines tiny, unspoilt islands with some truly stunning resorts and hotels - the perfect balance of luxury facilities and deserted beaches.


Perfect For: Romantic Cities and Stunning Beaches

There are plenty of honeymoon holiday destinations that offer romantic cities, and many others that have outstanding beaches, but there are few that combine the two elements as well as Cuba. Unforgettable Havana is a splendid mixture of colonial architecture, vibrant culture, and a stuck-in-the-1950's aesthetic, while coastal resorts such as Guardalavaca and Varadero are amongst the best beach holiday destinations in the Caribbean. The best option is to take a tailor made honeymoon that combines a stay in Havana or Trinidad with a relaxing break on the coast.

South Africa

Perfect For: Untamed Wildlife

If you are a wildlife lover, there's no better honeymoon holiday destination than South Africa, with Kruger National Park the star attraction. It is one of the finest wildlife reserves in the world, but it can also be a luxurious experience - visitors have the option of staying in five star lodges within the game reserve, offering luxury comfort in stunning African wilderness. A tailor made honeymoon to South Africa could combine a city break in Cape Town with a luxury safari in Kruger National Park.


Perfect For: High Culture

Italy is one of the classic luxury honeymoon destinations, and with very good reason - its combination of cultural cities, beautiful scenery and luxury experiences is unmatched. The architectural wonder that is Venice is perhaps the most romantic city in the world, though vibrant Rome is another strong contender. Both cities offer cultural delights of fine art and ancient architecture, if you are looking for a honeymoon holiday that combines high culture and romance, it is hard to better Italy.


Perfect For: Ultra Luxury

If your idea of romance is the finest restaurants and the most opulent hotels, than Dubai will be the perfect destination for your luxury honeymoon. Famed as a millionaires' playground, this remarkable emirate offers countless luxury experiences, from a stay at the Burj al Arab (the world's first seven star hotel), to haggling for precious metals and jewellery at the Gold Souk, relaxing on the famous Jumeriah beach to dune bashing and Berber barbeques in the desert. Whatever you want to do on a luxury honeymoon to Dubai, the chances are that someone can arrange it for you, no matter how specific your request may be!
