2014 is Brazil’s year, and the party in this fun loving nation is only going to get bigger and louder as we approach this summer’s FIFA Football World Cup! There is only one word needed to describe Brazil: sensual. From the sultry moves of the national dance, samba, to steamy nights on the streets of Rio di Janeiro, and the general sexiness of the Brazilian people as a nation, this is one country which screams hot, hot, hot when it comes to honeymoon destinations! The fifth largest country in the world, Brazil offers over 7000 kilometres of coastline and islands to explore, without forgetting the inland delights – the mythical Amazon is just waiting to be discovered.

Corsica

One of France’s hidden treasures is a short ferry crossing from the southern French coastline. Corsica is an island which offers spectacular natural beauty, a proud and independent culture, and mouthwatering food and wine. From the cliff top citadel welcoming you into the port of Bonifacio in the south, to the pretty harbour of Calvi in the north, and the forest and mountain villages found in between, Corsica really is made for newlyweds on holiday. Why not book your own private villa along the island's sparkling coastline or charter a sailing yacht to access the most secluded of coves?

Montenegro

If you dream of a relaxing honeymoon along the Mediterranean coast but don't want to deal with the accompanying crowds (or prices), then Montenegro is the honeymoon destination for you. This tiny nation sits in between Croatia and Albania on the Adriatic Coast and is one of the last undiscovered gems of Europe. But word is getting out, thanks to a spectacular landscape of mountains which descend into the sea, ancient forests, and pretty fishing villages. Tivat, on the coast, is a great base, although it's worth considering a romantic stay on Sveti Stefan, a charming islet connected to the mainland at Budvar.

Dominica, the nature island of the Caribbean, may only be small, but it punches well above its weight when it comes to action packed adventure for the newly married couple! Dominica has it all and more: jungle, sky high mountains, hot sulphur springs, waterfalls and trekking on the island, whilst snorkelling, diving, kayaking and whale watching just a selection of the water based activities. When it's time to chill out and relax, nothing spells romance more than a candle lit dinner overlooking the Caribbean Sea or making the most of the wellness facilities offered at your eco friendly accommodation.

New Zealand

Is there a more diverse country in the world than New Zealand? It's easy to see why the Land of the Long White Cloud is an eternal favourite with honeymooners. From the Scandinavian-esque Fiordland and Milford Sound, to the ski slopes of Queenstown and drinking Sauvignon Blanc in the Marlborough region, the South Island alone has endless attractions to entertain. Without mentioning the North Island and the dazzling Bay of Islands, the art-deco charm of Napier and the cafe culture of Auckland. New Zealand may take a while to get to, but, trust me; once you're there you won't want to leave.

From the beaches of Florida to the wine roads of California's Napa Valley, the USA offers a honeymoon option for every newly-wed couple. Highlights include the urban playgrounds of Boston and Chicago, the cultural and political fabric of the nation’s capital, Washington DC, and the Rocky Mountains and the Big Sky Country of Montana, to name just a few. America is a honeymooners dream and offers an unrivalled ease of travel. If you can only visit one city, however, make it New York. Classic chic flicks like Sleepless in Seattle have made the Big Apple synonymous with love, romance, and a bright heart atop the Empire State Building.

Spain is an eternal favourite for newlyweds. It’s easy to see why, with highlights including the 24 hour party island of Ibiza, the historic discoveries of the Alhambra in Granada and the distinct Basque flavour of San Sebastiàn. Spain is a culturally diverse country which boasts a selection of experiences depending on your tastes and budget. Yet no Spanish honeymoon would be complete without a stay in Barcelona, one of the world's great cities.

Sri Lanka

Thanks to improved transport links from Europe, Sri Lanka, off the coast of India in the Indian Ocean, is quickly gaining popularity as a favourite honeymoon destination. There’s no shortage of chic boutique hotels or holiday villas in romantic tropical settings and the beaches are made for relaxation. Yet Sri Lanka boasts some unique wildlife and a proud cultural heritage. Head to Yala National Park for a bit of Leopard, Elephant and Sloth Bear spotting and the town of Kandy, which is of immense religious and historical significance. At the end of the day, however, make time of a trip to the hill country for a cup of Ceylon tea!
