Top 4 wow-factor honeymoons
We’ve picked out a few of our favourite romantic retreats for an extraordinary honeymoon you’ll remember for the rest of your lives.
For bespoke experiences - Jade Mountain, St Lucia
Jade Mountain is often voted the number one honeymoon resort in the Caribbean. It’s not hard to see why. The resort has its very own romance concierge, so it’s set up to take care of your every whim, from sunset picnics in the privacy of your own suite to arranging a half-day sailing trip on the skippered resort yacht, Serenity. With the stunning Pitons as your backdrop, your suite is quite literally your sanctuary. Nestled along the hillside, each suite has a private Jacuzzi or infinity pool and one wall missing to give you uninterrupted sea views. Words and pictures don’t do this amazing resort justice.
For undiscovered beauty - Six Senses Zighy Bay, Oman
Set in the little-explored paradise of Oman, the Six Senses Zighy Bay has a private and exclusive vibe. It’s hidden away in spectacular surroundings, with the backdrop of the Musandam Peninsula on one side and the sandy Zighy Bay on the other. Start your honeymoon with a thrilling speedboat ride or, for the more adventurous, a tandem paraglide into the resort – something a little different from your typical car transfer. Enjoy the luxury of butler service in your private villa, feel pampered after a treatment at the Six Senses Spa, and relax by the pool with an ice-cream or sorbet (there are 42 flavours to tempt you!).
For a room with a view – Kandolhu Maldives
This tiny island’s Ocean Pool Villas are impossible to resist. There are only seven of these private hideaways and they all face the side of the island where you get the most unbelievable sunset views. The bathrooms have floor-to-ceiling windows which you can slide right back, so while you’re soaking in the bubbles you’ll feel like you’re on your own private island – with nothing but the sky and ocean ahead of you. If you’re lucky, you might even spot dolphins swimming by, and at low tide you can often see the reef, with its vibrant corals and kaleidoscopic fish.
For personalised service - Rocky’s Boutique Resort, Koh Samui, Thailand
Exclusive to Kuoni guests in the UK, this charming Koh Samui resort is all about relaxation and seclusion. It’s one of our most popular honeymoon hotels. Chill out in one of the three stunning coastal bays or lounge by the pool with a cocktail. Night time at Rocky’s Boutique Resort is particularly magical, with soft lighting creating an idyllic and intimate setting. This romantic resort is the perfect place to spend time together and unwind. It’s known for its warm service and hospitality, making you feel right at home and part of the Rocky’s family.
