Our resident travel guru, Lisa, talks about the perfect place to honeymoon


A honeymoon is possibly the most important holiday you will ever take.

To create the perfect memory, it must be a blend of romance and a fantastic destination. It doesn’t matter where the destination is, as long as it is special to you. For my mum and dad it was Jersey. My sister chose to go to Fuerteventura. My personal favourite would have to be the Maldives.

As always your budget will be a factor in how far and where you may finally choose to go. Many couples now ask for travel vouchers on their wedding gift list and some operators even allow online payment so guests can easily contribute to the trip of a lifetime.

When choosing your honeymoon I advise you to check the weather guides. A perfect sunny wedding in June in the UK may well be the rainy season elsewhere in the world.


According to Kuoni, the top ten Honeymoon destinations are:


  • Maldives
  • Sri Lanka
  • Dubai
  • Mauritius
  • Thailand
  • Malaysia
  • Kenya
  • Bali
  • USA
  • Caribbean


Wherever you choose to go, as honeymooners you will often benefit from complimentary honeymoon offers. These can include free room upgrades, candlelit dinners, spa treatments, wine, fruit and flowers in your room. A lucky friend of mine got upgraded to accommodation that had its own hot tub – Bliss!
