Most people see their wedding as a once-in-a-lifetime experience so what better way to put the icing on the wedding cake than by making the honeymoon live up to your expectations. Honeymoons should be memorable and couples should return with a photo album worth of amazing experiences. So, whether you are having a small wedding and blowing the savings on the honeymoon or simply pushing the yacht out on the whole thing – here are the top 10 most expensive honeymoon destinations to spend your romantic time with your couple.
There are a plethora of islands around the world where you can whisk your loved one away to knowing for sure that you won’t be disturbed. The South Pacific has enticed honeymooners for many years with its dramatically beautiful scenery and, most important for a honeymoon, exclusivity. When you’re not chilling out with a cocktail you can be experiencing a spot of scuba diving hand in hand. Reaching an island or two can be expensive as well as quite an effort but it’s worth it – every penny. And when you wake up in your over-water bungalow, you’ll know why.
An amazing nightlife and wonderful shopping can soon start to clock up the pounds. How can you go to New York on honeymoon and not shop to your heart’s content. Perhaps this option is more centred on the wife than the husband but then who doesn’t like New York and there are plenty of cultural experiences to keep you both occupied.
This is a country that values happiness over money so surely you can’t go wrong. But it is expensive for tourists. It bears the nickname of ‘Land of the Thunder Dragon’ and if its name doesn’t invoke a movie title then its dramatic landscapes will. While there – head off to the Taktsang Monastery. You’ll be sure to remember this holiday and talk about it for years.
If money is no object then Antarctica beckons. Tours range in price but this isn’t for the faint-hearted as you will be embarking upon a life-changing expedition not a chilled-out holiday for two. But together you will explore not just the world’s ice region and the wildlife that abounds but each other as you work together in an expedition team.
For true romance and dazzling sunsets and intimate dinners you can’t go wrong with Hawaii and, depending upon where you are flying from, this can offer a wealth of additional experiences. Midnight picnics on mountains, sunset cruises and couples’ massages in the spas are the stuff that dreams are made of and round it all off with a romantic walk along the beach.
This is one of the most expensive countries to visit in Africa and even the cheapest hotels are pretty expensive. But with some of the tours hitting an £8,000 price tag, it might just pique your interest for a honeymoon with a difference.
This is a country renowned for being expensive but it can certainly prove value for money with its amazing outdoor scenery, its fjords and, of course, for the ultimate honeymoon experience – the Northern Lights.
Where better to treat your new spouse than in the shopping centre of the world? Dubai has hit the lists of places to go in recent years with its luxury hotels frequented by the rich and famous and, of course, its large shopping malls hosting some of the key leading fashion brands. Your credit card will take a hit in Dubai but you’ll come home with some amazing souvenirs of your honeymoon. Relax poolside too or on the beach then indulge in the finest cuisine in the world.
No honeymoon article would be complete without a mention for Barbados. Barbados is a lover’s paradise with its fun nightlife, its glorious beaches and the promise of exclusive hotels and hideaways for romance. That’s why, we include Barbados as one of top 10 most expensive honeymoon destinations.
This honeymoon destination is still holding its own as popular with couples the world over. It’s a top class location and can charge top prices but…hey, it’s worth it. Beautiful beaches, scenes from paradise and luxurious resorts where you don’t have to lift a finger to enjoy luxury.
Your honeymoon should be one of the best experiences of a lifetime but what happens when it isn’t as planned and your hotel is not up to standard and you don’t get many of the luxuries that you paid for. This would be the time when a complaint to the hotel or tour operator is needed. And if this doesn’t suffice, make a holiday claim for compensation. Hopefully the information about the top 10 most expensive honeymoon destinations can be a useful reference for you.
