Our Dream Honeymoon Destinations
If there’s one thing we often hear from our Bo & Luca brides, it’s that everything happens so quickly. From the first bit of wedding planning to the actual big day, it’s over in a flash and before you know it, your new chapter is beginning. To beat the post-wedding blues, we’d suggest planning some time away as a newlywed couple to let it all sink in.
Honeymoons are a sacred and sweet time where you are able to focus on just each other. We’ve put together our top five Honeymoon Destinations, based on our Creative Director, Shannon’s, favourite vacation spots. Keep reading to discover your potential honeymoon location!
Surrounded by five hectares of centuries-old olive groves, and across country roads, this modern white stone farmhouse is situated on a ridge that overlooks the whitewashed old town of Ostuni and the sea. This elegant sanctuary is perfect for relaxing in a contemporary but rural setting, created from quaint courtyards, arches, and stone walls all made with locally sourced materials. With fresh air, clear skies, and unique views, we couldn’t think of a more peaceful place for a honeymoon.
If you’re looking for something off-the-grid that embodies everything you’d picture a rustic escape to be, then look no further. Situated on 175 hectares of private land in the awe-inspiring Klein Karoo, this treasure is perfect for serene quality time. The breathtaking views all around, fresh air and wildlife is enough to make your honeymoon one to remember.
One of our Creative Directors personal favourites, this five-star destination has continued from one generation to the next between the Pariente family in Saint-Tropez. With architecture and design centred around the chic and vintage essence of the 60’s, Lou Pinet is a poetic and charming vacation spot for those seeking a romantic and Tropezian break. Their onsite spa is the perfect way to reconnect in a calm environment along with exceptional dishes offered to guests at the BeefBar restaurant, under the guidance of Chef Riccardo Giraudi.
If you and your love have been searching for a location to truly indulge in Italian sun and culture then Villa San Michele is the place for you. A flourishing hilltop wonder, this hotel’s convivial gardens, delicious cuisine and breathtaking skyline views are a match made in honeymoon heaven. Say ‘Sì’ to modern and luxurious accomodation and service, and explore a nearby 16th-century monastery, the expansive and sensorial grounds, drinks by the buzzing bar or monthly cultural events celebrating nature, architecture, art, design and culinary delights through social gatherings held by the hotel.
Some of you may be wanting to venture into the chillier corners of the world, so that you can cuddle up and relax or go on a cozy adventure! Verbier, in the canton of Valais of south-western Switzerland, is perfect for both! From leisurely skis, lively bars and clubs, and phenomenal accomodation, you can’t go wrong in this glamorous winter destination.
Planning a honeymoon is a special part of your journey together as newlyweds and the perfect opportunity to visit somewhere you’ve both been wanting to go. Some say the word itself refers to the sweetness of a new marriage, and what could be sweeter than creating your own unique romantic escape!
We hope you’ve found inspiration in this list of idyllic destinations and wish you well connecting, relaxing, and exploring with the love of your life.
