Whilst the shops in England are crammed full of seasonal shoppers sheltering from the rain and making last-minute purchases, the seasonal vibe in Australia is much more laid back with beach barbecues and faux-snow scenes a distant memory. The temperature in Australia during December has been known to reach 40 degrees Celsius, making a welcome change from a Christmas at home in the UK. As Australia is such a large destination, you are spoilt for choice when deciding where to head for your luxury honeymoon, so a multi-centre trip would appear to be the best option. You and your new husband could even opt for a tailor-made honeymoon around the country. However, we recommend spending the first couple of days of your honeymoon holiday alone on the secluded Hayman Island, located in Australia's Whitsunday Islands. Here you can enjoy each other company whilst recovering from the stresses and strains of organising a wedding. Your next stop could be the rainforest location of Bloomfield, where you can spend a couple of days in a rainforest room listening to the sounds of nature, before retreating to an island on the Great Barrier Reef where you can relax for the last few days of your honeymoon holiday.
There is no where quite like Thailand in January and the resort makes the perfect destination for a honeymoon holiday. The beaches of Phuket with their fine golden sand are the perfect place to get away from everything and the resort has plenty of attractions for you and your new husband to visit. One of the most romantic excursions that you can partake in is a romantic elephant trek through the Thai jungle, where you can watch the locals tapping the sap from the giant rubber trees. The Phang Nga Jungle Trek is one of the countries' best places to do this, and whilst here you can meet the friendly baby elephants in their daily show, which includes dancing and harmonica playing. No luxury honeymoon in Thailand would be complete without a traditional Thai massage and although these are available from a plethora of people on Karon Beach, indulge in a massage at your luxury hotel. The Evason Phuket Resort and Spa is well renowned for its treatments.
Phuket has some breathtaking islands located just a few hours' sail away in the Andaman Sea, including the beautiful Phi Phi Islands, where the Leonardo Di Caprio film, 'The Beach', was set. On your luxury honeymoon the best way to visit these islands is by chartering a traditional Junk boat. The Junks in Thailand were all used during the filming of the James Bond film 'Tomorrow Never Dies' as the Andaman Sea was considered a much warmer option for the actors than the South China Sea. With this is mind make sure that you visit Phang Nga Bay, the setting of another James Bond film 'The Man with the Golden Gun'.
February Brides should head to Oman for their luxury honeymoon a country which is relatively untouched by tourism, but yet boasts miles and miles of long sandy beaches. Honeymooners may be spoilt for choice when choosing which boutique hotel to visit, but the exclusive beach resort of the Chedi Muscat is a good start. The resort is located amongst the backdrop of the Muscat Mountains and is the perfect place to pamper yourselves whilst on your honeymoon holidays. The luxurious spa contains seven private treatment rooms all boasting sunken terrazzo baths. The signature Omani Bliss Therapy Treatment, that the Chedi Muscat offers, simply must be experienced on your honeymoon holiday.
