Planning a honeymoon is exciting, but can feel like a financial strain too. The Daily Mail reported that the average honeymoon now costs £4,000. However, your honeymoon does not have to cost the earth. We have chosen three of the best 5-star honeymoon destinations that won’t hurt your pocket.
Rhodes, Greece – Atrium Palace Thalasso Spa Resort and Villas
This is an immaculate hotel that couples often choose for their wedding, so you can be sure that you will be basking in lavish surroundings during your stay. Set on Rhodes, this resort has breath-taking views and fabulous beaches. Its facilities are amazing so you’ll feel in the lap of luxury.
If you can actually tear yourselves away from this hotel, Rhodes is an island well worth exploring. It is one of the most beautiful Greek islands, and provides fascinating culture and history to boot. Take a romantic stroll through its charming towns and fishing villages and you’ll create many fond memories to begin your married life together.
Krabi, Thailand – Centara Grand Beach Resort and Villas
If you’re looking to go further afield, Thailand is a marvellous location to visit on a budget. Flights are not as expensive as you may think and the cost of living there is low, so you can afford to indulge. If tropical waters, incredible massages, delicious food and exotic cocktails are your thing, then this is the place for you. The Thai island of Krabi has amazing beaches. You can also walk a monkey trail, hire out a kayak or visit the town of Ao Nang for shopping and a choice of restaurants and bars, all with unbelievably low prices.
Krabi’s Centara Grand hotel has a private beach in a breathtaking setting. Room choices include those with private whirlpool on the balcony, or villas with their own pool. The hotel also provides you with a private boat to visit Ao Nang. For a romantic and tropical trip, Krabi could be the place for you.
Goa, India – Cidade De Goa
Last, but certainly not least, we recommend Goa in India. This stunning place is inexpensive, but offers so much to its visitors. The mix of cultures has contributed to its superlative surroundings. It boasts amazing architecture – such as temples, grand colonial buildings and small traditional fishing villages. There is plenty of exotic local food, which is a mix of Indian and Chinese. The landscape of Goa is wonderful, with exquisite beaches, magnificent waterfalls and spectacular wildlife. Seeing elephants and monkeys in their natural habitat is not something you can experience on every holiday!
The Cidade De Goa is an elegant and friendly resort pairing sophisticated service with a tranquil Goan atmosphere. Located on a verdant hillside, it has views over a secluded bay and Vainguinim Beach. Facilities are fantastic with pools, spa, a gymnasium and private beach. A great location for your amorous trip.
