Or if you fancy something a little more far from home with a mix of walking, hiking and authenticity, then immersing yourself within the peaceful Himalaya Mountains would be awe inspiring.

Taking it seriously
If you’re serious about your wellness honeymoon, its best to try and get the most out of it – that means taking full advantage of the facilities and amenities.

Perhaps set yourself challenges and tasks to ensure you make the most out of your retreat.
This is your first holiday as newlyweds, so use it as a chance to enjoy each other’s company and work together on yourselves. Perhaps try couples yoga or go on a long hike to really take in your surroundings – it will help strengthen your bond and get your marriage off to the right start.
Try new things
