We want to share the wealth of our knowledge from our dedicated weddings team and travel experts to present to you our recommended resorts for your romantic time away.
So, whether you're planning your big day, your unforgettable honeymoon or once in a lifetime anniversary, we have our top picks for you...
Full of Mauritian character and style, Zilwa Attitude is in a beautiful setting with a real home from home atmosphere and a special emphasis on becoming an authentic islander during your stay. While staying in resort, you can learn Creole, enjoy a cooking class or even join a sunrise boat trip together, perfect for catching those colourful Mauritian sunsets.
We recommend Zilwa Attitude for its free wedding package, including a simple and exclusive ceremony at the hotel with wine, a wedding cake and candlelit dinner; or you can opt for our ‘Islander’ package with all the trimmings, including a skilled hairdresser to sumptuous spa treatments. What's more, the ceremony takes place on Zilwa's private island of Gran Zil - ideal if you want a secluded ceremony.
"We love weddings abroad and we urge you to capture your ceremony on film to share your special day with absent friends and family. It also means you can relive the moment – it’s amazing how much you miss at the time!"

If you’re looking for a really personal, intimate wedding or honeymoon, we can’t recommend Rocky’s Boutique Resort enough. Set on Koh Samui, the team at Rocky's makes you feel like family as you get married in a secluded bay on the beach, the aisle decorated with petals, and say ‘I do’ under a floral arch.
We can also organise umbrella bearers and a traditional Thai long drum procession as you walk down the aisle, if you'd like to inject a bit of local culture into your ceremony. Rocky’s is also exclusive to Kuoni guests in the UK; many of our team have even got married here, too!
Some experiences are worth travelling around the world for like 'Spa Under The Stars'. This relaxing experience is a 105-minute couples’ treatment at Kurumba Maldives that makes a perfect honeymoon or anniversary treat.
The experience starts with a royal aromatic bathing ritual using rose, ylang ylang and lavender essentials oils and petals, followed by an open-air massage in the pavilion, timed with the sunset in mind. Warm coconut oil will trickle onto your skin from cowrie shells, which are then used to soothe away any tensions. Finish with a head massage, glass of Champagne and fruits dipped in chocolate while you stargaze on the beach hand in hand.
We hand-picked Rendezvous as it's one of the most romantic hotels in the Caribbean and a hot spot for beachside weddings and honeymoons. It’s also just for adults so you’re guaranteed a romantic stay with no stresses.
You can get married or renew your vows for just a small fee here when you book with us and a wedding specialist will be on hand to organise your bouquet and music, decorate your wedding arch and even bring you a delicious breakfast in bed the next day!
"Once you've booked your Kuoni honeymoon, it’s a great idea to add it to a John Lewis gift list. We're their exclusive travel partner and it means all your guests can help make your honeymoon dreams come true."

Elegant, award-winning and most definitely one of the best hotels in the Caribbean, The Fairmont Royal Pavilion is ideal for your anniversary. You can wake up to an ocean view, relax on the beach and enjoy complimentary afternoon tea on the terrace.
There’s exceptional cuisine, steel pans by the sea on a Sunday and we highly recommend an upgrade to a Beachfront Junior Suite as an added treat, with a deck leading straight onto the beach, butler service and complimentary evening canapés. What more could you possibly want?!
If you want to get married and your wedding party includes children, Constance Ephélia Resort is our top choice in the Seychelles. There are two spectacular soft sand beaches, pretty, lush gardens and a dedicated wedding co-ordinator to make sure everything goes to plan for you. There’s also a fantastic kids’ club from 4-11 years and tons of activities to keep everyone occupied, from an exhilarating zipline to conquering the climbing wall!
Book an exclusive Waterview Spa Suite at The Verandah Resort & Spa in Antigua with us and be spoilt rotten with three complimentary spa treatments and a romantic dinner for two at the hotel’s signature restaurant.
Weddings are really popular here due to the choice of stunning ceremony locations, from panoramic terraces and scented gardens to breathtaking beaches. We always have a selection of the latest honeymoon and anniversary touches to make your stay extra special, all you need do is ask our in-store travel experts.
"Having an overseas wedding in a romantic location removes stress for the couple enabling them to focus on each other and to have a day to remember for all the right reasons."
