Find instant inspiration for your post-wedding break, as the experts at Turquoise Holidays share their top honeymoon trends for 2020…
Long gone are the days where a honeymoon was just a fortnight on the beach. Now, anything goes, whether it’s hopping between several destinations or seeing how you can make your honeymoon an environmentally friendly one. There’s no limit to what your honeymoon can look like and now something different is the new normal. Here are a few honeymoon trends we think will be on the rise in 2020…
A fast-growing trend is newlywed couples enjoying a short break together after their wedding, instead of a full-blown honeymoon. Often it’s down to time constraints or budget, but those who go on a mini-moon don’t have to sacrifice on glitz or glamour. Destinations like Oman and Zanzibar aren’t as far as you think and perfect if you’re only looking for a few days away together. Then, you can plan the ‘big one’ for later on in your married life. Two honeymoons are better than one, right?
Places like Oman or Yosemite National Park in California speak for themselves when it comes to an adventurous honeymoon but even most beach resorts now boast a wealth of water sports (which will come as part of your honeymoon package) so you have alternatives to spending time on the sand. Nature walks, boat trips and much more are often available, with most hotels offering an activity-packed schedule that you can dip in and out of whenever you please. Head to Mauritius, where resorts like Constance Prince Maurice have an enviable selection of water activities you can try. Even when you have a splendid stretch of sand in front of you, there are plenty of different ways you can enjoy your slice of paradise!
Is there anything more romantic than you and your loved one hitting the open road and enjoying the complete freedom that comes with it? You can stop wherever you like and really tailor your itinerary to your interests, even making changes along the way if you get tipped off about something by some locals! The epic scenery of California or New Zealand would be our top picks, with a variety of experiences and vistas to soak up. It’s time to get that motor running…
Being more environmentally friendly is something that is becoming more and more important in today’s world. That extends to a honeymoon and newlyweds are trying to blur the boundaries between a romantic escape and green travel, making sure they’re helping the planet while enjoying a slice of paradise. Resorts like Bawah Reserve in Indonesia or Six Senses Laamu in the Maldives always have their fingers on the pulse when it comes to reducing waste, offering a sustainable way of living and getting guests involved so they feel like they’re giving back to the island idyll they’re staying in.
Can’t decide where to go? Then just splash out on it all! A mega-moon is a multi-country, multi-continent honeymoon where no expense is spared. Mix a few destinations and go all out when it comes to lavish accommodation. We’re thinking a few days in the bright lights of Los Angeles before moving on to the South Pacific paradise of The Islands of Tahiti – perfection! Or you can fly the other way around the world and head to New Zealand first, before then heading to Tahiti. With epic destinations and epic places to stay, you can’t really go wrong!
