Most Romantic Honeymoon Destinations

Maldives

The Maldives is like no other place on earth. This tiny nation consists of 1,100 small islands laid out like a string of pearls in the Indian Ocean. With clear blue seas and golden sand beaches, it’s no wonder that many top luxury resorts can be found here. Some of our favorite Maldives resorts include Anantara Veli Maldives and Four Seasons Maldives At Kuda Huraa – all which have gorgeous over-water villas.

Tip: Book any hotel through Ebates.com on a “Travel Thursday”, and you’ll receive 10 percent back. For example, if you book the Anantara Veli Maldives, you’ll receive $40.10 back for each night booked.

Florence, Italy, is a top honeymoon destination.
Florence, Italy, is a top honeymoon destination.

Florence, Italy 

Florence has been charming lovers for centuries. From its cobblestone streets and distinctive architecture to its historic bridges and stately Duomo, Florence is meant to be explored with your sweetheart. Linger over coffee at a patio café and then see incredible artworks like Michalengelo’s David (at the Accademia) or Botticelli’s Venus Rising (at the Uffizi). Accommodations range from the incurably romantic Antica Torre di Via Tornabuoni 1 to the budget Soggiorno Battistero near the Duomo.

Quebec City

On the bank of the St. Lawrence River in French-speaking Quebec, this Canadian city has the most European feel of any destination in North America. Quebec City dates to 1628, and its colonial roots can still be seen in the stone buildings and narrow cobblestone streets of its colonial core. The historic Château Frontenac Hotel is a must-see for romantics (even if you don’t stay there, be sure to stop in for tea or dinner), while the Hôtel Québec Inn offers a very nice and quiet place to stay. If you have a winter honeymoon, the Quebec Winter Carnival is a good time to go. Regardless of when you visit, Quebec City is a place you’ll want to return to. Maybe on that 10th anniversary?

Kauai, Hawaii

In Hawaii, you can spend most of your honeymoon enjoying the Great Outdoors. Savor breakfast on your outdoor lanai, and then hike the Napali Coast. Spend the afternoon snorkeling at Anini Beach or saddle up and explore Kauai’s backcountry on horseback. One of the most romantic hotels in Kauai is the St. Regis Princeville, which has a stunning location overlooking Hanalei Bay. The deck at Makana Terrace is the perfect place to watch the sunset.

Romantic travel in Paris, France
There’s some forever romantic about Paris.

Paris, France

Paris must be on everyone’s list of most romantic destinations. There’s something special about walking along the Seine and through neighborhoods like Le Marais, Montparnasse and the Latin Quarter with your love. Dining, arts and culture are large parts of any honeymoon in Paris, but you’ll find other memorable activities as well, such as touring the underground catacombs of Paris. Whether you want to stay at a well-known hotel like Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile, which has a view of the Eiffel Tower, or a boutique hotel like Hotel Beauchamps near the Champs Elysées, you’ll find just the right accommodations to suite your needs.

Northern Territory, Australia

The Outback is wild and untamed, and it’s the perfect destination for couples seeking adventure. Go on Outback safari in Arnhemland or hiking in Kakadu National Park. Take a sunrise hot air balloon ride at Uluru (Ayers Rock) or go fishing for barramundi at the Top End, taking care to avoid the crocs. Many Outback hotels and resorts are in gorgeous natural settings, such as the Darwin FreeSpirit Resort.

Bora Bora, French Polynesia

Though it’s far from the beaten path, French Polynesia is well-worth the trip. This is one destination that is even more beautiful than the postcards. Overwater bungalows, quiet beaches and romantic sunsets await visitors to this tropical paradise. Five-star resorts like Le Meridien Bora Bora and St. Regis Bora Bora Resort provide beachside or overwater villas.

Santorini, Greece

A top destination for weddings, Santorini is also popular with honeymooners. The island provides a unique mix of sun and centuries of ancient history, all set against a beautiful backdrop of blue seas and white architecture. Rent your own villa at Andromeda Villas or soak in your own private view of the sea at Sophia Luxury Suites.
