My dream honeymoon destinations

I am a daydreamer and a planner through and through but it is only over the past few years that I have started to act on my aspirations and start making my dreams become reality. One of my favourite things to do when I have a bit of time to kill is to browse travel websites and dream of all the beautifully European and all the far off and exotic places that I would love to visit one day. There are countless places that I would love to explore, innumerable things that I want to see and of course, so many foods that are waiting for me to devour!

Our 10th wedding anniversary in 2019 is creeping up on us and I am seeing this occasion as a perfect opportunity to do something really special. We have already talked about doing a Bahamas Disney Cruise, visiting California for the first time or even renewing our wedding vows somewhere like Las Vegas. More than anything though, I would love a relaxing break as a family.... a luxurious, magical break like no other. When we got married, you might remember we spent our honeymoon at Disneyland Paris which was absolutely magical, beautiful and perfectly *us* but I must admit I always craved that luxury break complete with soft sands, glorious sunshine, warm waters and seductive cuisine.... I definitely think it's about time we made that happen!

Long-haul luxury travel operator Destination2.co.uk are currently holding a competition to win a luxurious 7 night honeymoon in Mauritius. To be in with a chance of winning they are asking folk to send in their proposal stories. You can enter the competition by clicking here. Mauritius is such a dreamy destination and what a luxurious prize! 

With this competition in mind, I have been dreaming of a few destinations that I would love to take a second honeymoon in because well, what a way to celebrate 10 years of happy marriage! I have never heard that your honeymoon has to be a once-in-a-lifetime trip anyway! Let's do it again!  


Barbados is well and truly on my radar at the moment and it is somewhere that I have wanted to visit for so long. Taking a trip here looks to be as exciting or relaxing as you want it to be and with so many places to explore, glorious sunshine, sandy beaches and more rum than you can shake a stick at, I honestly think that I would be in heaven here! Barbados has a rich and diverse culture to explore and a huge range of luxury resorts to relax and enjoy a romantic break at. It is our absolute dream luxury holiday destination! 


Thailand is surely one of the worlds most desired holiday locations as it is home to some of the most idyllic beaches and islands on this planet. A second honeymoon in Phuket would be perfect for us as it is absolute paradise complete with over thirty beaches to see, rich culture to explore and delicious cuisines to sample. 

Some of the 5 star resorts here look incredible with The Shore at Katathani making it's way right to the top of my travel wish list! This resort is nestled amongst lush greenery right by the stunning Kata Noi Beach. A true romantic holiday destination complete with unrivalled luxury and ultimate relaxation.

I have always associated the Maldives with ultimate relaxation and indulgence and therefore it firmly is on my list of dream *honeymoon* destinations. With a tropical climate that is warm to hot all year round, crystal clear waters and unsurpassed natural beauty, the Maldives offer a truly exotic experience. I would love to visit here with the intention of total relaxation with my husband, it honestly looks like heaven on earth. 

If money was no object, I would head straight for the Anantara Kihavah Villas which are set on the island of Kihavah Huravalhi, supposedly the most beautiful in the Maldives. Private pools, a stunning underwater restaurant and even the option of a kids club make this resort ideal and somewhere that I am just dreaming of visiting one day!

  1. Jesus, I'd visit them all! Ten years is a huge deal; you totally need to mark it with something really special :).

    For me, I'd go with New Zealand, Canada, Norway or somewhere stupid Kodak like the Seychelles. Only planning on doing it once, so it's gotta be fancy!

    Also, so sorry I've not been as supportive of your posts lately; been living under a bit of a rock and well away from all things blogging and being social! On my way back to civilisation, and catching up with your posts now!
