Newlyweds Anna and Sam reveal how they booked the trip of a lifetime through Secret Honeymoons…
Secret Honeymoons are the latest trend in honeymooning for young, adventurous couples. This exciting new concept is described as “the most exciting way imaginable to honeymoon”, and we can see why!
You have your whole honeymoon expertly designed and booked for you, and you don’t know a thing about your destination or itinerary until the day you leave home! After some initial conversations when you first get in touch, all you receive from that point onwards are some clues about vaccinations and what to pack. Then, anywhere from a few hours to a day before your honeymoon begins, your destination and itinerary are finally revealed. You receive a beautiful package via email that includes everything you need to know as well as your flight tickets. Aimed at couples who value travel, saving time and stress, and quality time spent together, Secret Honeymoons take the stress out of your honeymoon, while you focus on your wedding.
Meet real couple Anna and Sam who chose a Secret Honeymoon to follow their stylish Boston wedding. Here, Anna tells us why a Secret Honeymoon was perfect for them…
Why did you choose to Secret Honeymoon?
“We both love to travel and have planned a lot of our own trips in the past, but for such an important once-in-a-lifetime adventure we really wanted this to be special. There is nothing else like this out there, and nothing can match that build up of anticipation to the moment your destination is finally revealed. We were literally bursting with excitement and as we expected surprised, but pleased with our destination and itinerary. We could tell it had been designed for us and we loved the fact we were going on a honeymoon so unique to us that no-one else had been on.”
What did your family and friends think of the idea?
“Everyone was excited, although our parents were a little nervous about the unknown component. After we explained we had our own trip designer who we had spoken to and who we trusted to plan us the best trip imaginable, they relaxed a little. No-one was surprised that we would choose such an adventure for our first travels as husband and wife. Most people’s reaction was “that is so you!”
What were you most nervous about?
“We went through waves of nervousness throughout the process, but to be honest we were so overwhelmed with wedding planning that it was really nice to know that the honeymoon element was being taken of by someone else.”
What were you most excited for?
“Definitely finding out the destination! We did try to guess at times based on what we had told our trip designer, but we could never have guessed the itinerary that they built and the number of unexpected surprises along the way. Our trip was totally planned with us in mind, and we’re already considering a one-year anniversary trip.”
And where did we send them…
Borneo! They wanted adventure and to head off-the-grid, and through our initial conversation it came out that Anna had always wanted to hide away in a rainforest somewhere. Their budget and time allowed them to visit Mt. Kinabalu, Orangutan sanctuaries, Kinabatangan river and beautifully pristine white sand beaches, virtually deserted of tourists.
