Planning Your 2020 Honeymoon: 5 Destinations to Keep in Mind

Planning Your 2020 Honeymoon: 5 Destinations to Keep in Mind

Honeymoon planning is difficult enough as is, and the COVID-19 pandemic has complicated the process even more. Fortunately, it is still possible to plan a safe honeymoon trip right now with plenty of options for intimate stays and secluded destinations. The question is “how do you make it special?”

Our travel advisors, who are busy planning honeymoons for the season, share some of their favorite “micro-moments” of love across 5 spectacular destinations that are perfect for a 2020 honeymoon!

Rajasthan

 

Soaked in the tales of chivalry and romance, famous for its majestic forts, luxurious palaces and spectacular landscapes, Rajasthan is a unique and striking combination of princely and colourful cities mixed in with remote deserts, rural village life and tiger inhabited jungles. The living heritage of the state adds that royal touch that will elevate any travel experience.

From Udaipur’s lakeside charm to Jaisalmer’s “true-blue” hospitality, there’s no place that brings together such a royal combination of romantic experiences. And if you’re looking for something less-frequented, there’s the historic town of Bikaner, the spiritual centre of Pushkar or Bharatpur, perfect for wildlife-viewing.

 

 

Micro-Moments of Love:

There’s nothing quite like taking a romantic boat ride on the breath-takingly beautiful Lake Pichola. And the choice of heritage properties is endless. But we also recommend a sundowner in the spectacular dunes of Osian, an hour outside Jodhpur. Mashals and campfire surrounded by folk musicians from the area set the scene for an intimate dinner for two. Or opt to spend the night in the dunes – few things are more romantic than sleeping under the stars surrounded by the desert.

Andamans

Fewer people, splendid attractions, romantic weather, a captivating view and a destination that provides the luxury of a quality time together, that’s the Andamans for you! Some of the most remote islands in the world are in the Andamans featuring white sand beaches with crystal clear water, glow in the dark algae and historic sights.

The island especially offers plenty of activities for couples who love to bond over adventure. Kayaking through the mangroves, some of the best scuba diving in the country, surfing and jet skiing as well as exceptional hiking and trekking in the jungles. And if you prefer the slow life, there are enough pristine and secluded spots for a long walk on the beach.

Micro-Moments of Love:

The Andaman Islands offer a tantalising culinary experience, with influences from across the Bay of Bengal, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and Myanmar. A meal at the Shoreline (Taj Havelock) offers the opportunity to delve into the wealth of curries from across this belt. You would’ve never tried so many different flavours in one place! And then there’s the opportunity to enjoy a candlelit dinner inside a lighthouse, overlooking the endless sea at sunset.

Dubai

As the weather gets cooler, Dubai is a great (and one of the few open) destination to head out of the country. Sparkling skyscrapers in the desert marked by an equally glimmering coastline and boasting the world’s tallest building: the Burj Khalifa, Dubai is the home of untamed luxury.

A destination for couples who love fast-paced cosmopolitan cities with oodles of glitz, glamour and excitement around every corner. The city effortlessly fuses its native Arabian traditions with all the luxurious accoutrements of the West.

Micro-Moments of Love:

From a romantic stroll and dinner by the beach to exploring the adventurous side of each other, Dubai has all the perfect ingredients to spice up your honeymoon getaway. Start your day with a hot air balloon ride to capture a beautiful sunrise over the desert, followed by a gourmet breakfast inside a Bedouin camp. And end it with a traditional Hammam journey in complete seclusion inside your own private suite. You get to choose your preferred Hammam treatment inspired by ancient rituals of the land.

Kerala

Misty hills, scenic backwaters, unending coconut groves, and calming beaches make Kerala an exotically romantic destination for newlyweds. You’ll find yourself instantly enchanted by the verdant hillsides of Kerala’s Munnar Tea Estates or with a freshly prepared meal as you enjoy the lush greenery, endless paddy fields, remote islands and tranquil backwaters in a beautiful Alleppey houseboat. The experiences are galore!

From authentic ayurvedic experiences to laid back houseboat rides to cruises in Cochin and wildlife in Thekkady, God’s own country sure is a wonderful destination to kickstart your married life.

Micro-Moments of Love:

While houseboats are a great way to experience the backwaters, how about staying at a resort located right inside a lagoon? As their trusty tea lady comes by on her floating tea shop or you are taken for a ride across the Vembanad ecosystem, it’s a great, immersive way to experience the slow life of the backwaters.

Maldives

 

Soaked in year-round sunshine and boasting some of the world’s most stunning beaches, the Maldives are geared towards romantic escapes and relaxation. It is always an obvious option for a honeymoon retreat since it offers newlyweds an idyllic setting for a romantic and intimate experience.

Thousands of islands string together, all set in the azure waters of the Indian Ocean and adorned with pure white sands and vivid coral reefs. When you’re not topping up your tan, slip into a turquoise lagoon for a spot of snorkelling, relax on a private beach or take a sunset cruise on a dhoni (traditional Maldivian boat).

 

 

 

Micro-Moments of Love:

A private outdoor cinema that makes dinner on the sandbank truly special. Across the water by boat, you can spend the evening on your own strip of sand, under the stars, watching the movie of your choice. Share a bottle of champagne and homemade popcorn and nibbles or enjoy a complete candle-lit dinner before the movie starts.

Our team handpicks such “micro-moments” of love to plan the perfect honeymoon for our guests. Book a call with our Advisor to learn more about the experiences above.
