After the wedding celebrations finally wind down and the last of the guests bid their fond farewell, most newlyweds turn their thoughts to the next biggest event in their lives – three days, two weeks, perhaps even a month of honeymooning in an exotic location tucked away somewhere in the world.

Listed below is a quick snapshot of five of the best places for honeymoon that are sure to exceed expectations and deliver a happy and memorable experience for couples that have just tied the knot:

1. Bora Bora, French Polynesia

Bora Bora French Polynesia

Why Go:

If the thought of relaxing in a beautiful thatched-roof bungalow surrounded by stunning foliage, crystal clear, emerald waters and dazzling schools of fish sounds appealing, then this would be the perfect romantic honeymoon destination for you and your beloved.

Where To Stay:

For the ultimate pampering experience, check in at the super-luxurious St. Regis Bora Bora Resort where your every whim and fancy will be catered to at the drop of a hat. From amazing personalized firework displays to a personal butler serving you sparkling champagne in the finest glass, while you and your spouse lounge on the terrace watching the spectacular setting of the evening sun, St. Regis always goes the extra mile to make sure you have everything your heart desires.

What To Eat:

You can either have your meals at the resort you’re staying at or venture outside to try out different options. The Bora Bora Yacht Club for instance, is extremely popular among visitors for its delicious French Polynesian cuisine. Seafood lovers in particular are in for a treat as a mouthwatering menu of succulent seafood are a specialty at this venue. Go ahead and sample The Trio of Tahitian Fish and the Mahi Mahi burger – these two must-try dishes are guaranteed to tantalize your taste buds and compel you to go for second helpings!

What To Do:

Start off by diving into the inner lagoon and exploring the wonderful underwater world of Bora Bora. If you’re not comfortable with diving, you can still enjoy some terrific views by submarine. Next, take a bike or boat trip to view the breathtaking Mount Otemanu – one of 2 extinct volcanoes standing majestically at the center of the main island. Round off your day by enjoying an idyllic moonlight walk along the sandy white beaches.

When To Go:

In terms of cost as well as the weather, May and October are great times to visit this truly stunning destination. These months both fall just outside of Bora Bora’s ‘hot season’ and the prices generally don’t reach skyrocketing levels during this period. Perfect honeymoon place for honeymooners!

2. Venice, Italy

Venice Italy

Why Go:

When it comes to the best place for honeymoon, another spot that’s frequently highlighted is Venice. And with good reason too. With its sparkling water canals that gracefully twist and turn across the city, narrow cobbled pathways and awe-inspiring architecture steeped in history, Venice is a superb choice for newlyweds worldwide.

You may also consider staying at Hotel Danieli – just like the Carlton, they too offer a complete honeymoon package that includes champagne on arrival, fresh flowers in the room and breakfast in bed.

What To Eat:

Since Venice is surrounded by water, you can look forward to sampling an array of delectable seafood dishes. Some outstanding eateries that you can try out include the Ristorante Da Raffaele, Trattoria Madonna and Harry’s Bar – this is where the Bellini was first invented and it still remains a huge hit amongst both locals and tourists.

What To Do:

For starters, book a ride on a gondola and cuddle up with your sweetheart as you’ll glide along the historic Grand Canal that connects all of the little islands – it really is a brilliant and utterly romantic way of taking in the sights.

The 9th century Doge’s Palace is another splendid tourist hot spot. Once the official residence of a Doge (the title bestowed upon a Venetian ruler), it is now one of the most prominent museums in Venice.

Also, don’t forget to pay a visit to the Sistine Chapel of Venice – San Rocco Church. Arrive early to beat the long queues and take your time to inspect Tintoretto’s exceptional wooden carvings and marvel at the phenomenal ceiling-high paintings that decorate the walls of the church.

When To Go:

Anytime between April and June would be fine. September and October are also busy months. Avoid July and August as temperatures soar during this period.

5. Maldives

Maldives Honeymoon

Why Go:

Pristine white beaches, insanely romantic villas standing above deep blue water and a stunning underwater world filled with friendly turtles and spectacular schools of fish…what’s not to like about the Maldives? It’s probably why US actor and comedian Andy Samberg and his wife Joanna Newsom chose it as their honeymoon venue.

Where To Stay:

Catch the last rays of the setting sun aboard an exclusive dhoni (a sailboat crafted by hand) and follow it up with a private dinner for two on One Palm Island.

What To Eat:

Generally, all of the resorts here are self-contained so they’re bound to have their own restaurant. While the cuisine is delicious, other hangouts worth a visit include Symphony (the steak, cuttlefish and spaghetti are divine), Aioli (if you want to give Euro-Indo-Asian food a go, try them out – the steaks are excellent) and Shell Beans (a lovely little coffee shop that’s off the land and a hit with the expat community in Maldives).

What To Do:

If you and your spouse are surfing enthusiasts, you’ll want to make a beeline to surf spots such Cola’s, Lohifushi or Sultans. On the other hand, if you prefer to go diving, head over to Baa Atoll (which has been named a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve) and spend some time gliding through a beautiful maze of Technicolor corals.

Addu Atoll is another fabulous place to check out, especially if you’re an experienced diver. This venue contains the remnants of the British Loyalty – a 1940s oil tanker that was targeted by an underwater missile during World War 2.

When To Go:

A convenient time to visit would be between January and April with February and March being the driest months. However, keep in mind that the rates tend to be quite high during this period – still, the chances of rain spoiling your vacation are pretty low, which is obviously a huge plus point.
