If there’s one thing that can really make or break your honeymoon it’s the accommodation. There’s no point in spending huge amounts of money travelling to some far off land if you aren’t going to be able to get a good night’s sleep at the end of the day. With so many options and a whole host of online resources with conflicting advice on where to go and where to avoid, picking a hotel can be a bit of a minefield. So, to help ease some of the pressure, we've concocted a list of our favourite honeymoon hotspots around the world.
The Float House River Kwai, Thailand
Located in the region of Kanchanaburi, this unusual hotel actually sits on top of the River Kwai, providing spectacular views from your very own floating balcony and terrace. Each room is housed within its own private villa affording guests maximum privacy and the hotel also has its own floating restaurant that serves a range of delicious Thai dishes.
There is perhaps nowhere on earth as magical as Iceland and what better way to make the most of everything the country has to offer than staying in a glass igloo. Iceland attracts visitors from around the globe seeking to witness the Northern Lights, but how many of them can say they saw them from the comfort and warmth of their own private glass igloo?
Palacio de Sal, Bolivia
Welcome to the world’s first hotel built entirely from salt. This unique property is located near the world famous Salar de Uyuni (salt flat), which spans across a vast section of Bolivia. Each of the rooms has been carefully and stylishly designed to provide the ultimate level of comfort and there is an onsite golf course and spa. In the evening retire to the dining room to feast on traditional local cuisine.
Singita Sabora Camp, Tanzania
Camping during your honeymoon might not seem very glamorous but when you’re staying in a luxury African safari tent, camping takes on a whole new meaning. Equipped with nine lavish tents, each one filled with plush furniture, the camp is located in the Singita Grumeti Private Reserve in Tanzania and is what safari dreams are made of. Wake up each morning to the sight of wild animals grazing on the plains and fall asleep to a million stars twinkling above you.
Laucala Island, Fiji
Located on its own private island within the Fijian archipelago, Laucala consists of 25 private villas, each offering unparalleled vistas of the surrounding natural beauty. This tropical paradise gives guests the chance to unwind as they soak up the sights, sounds and sun that bless the region. When hunger strikes, there are five different dining options, meaning every taste and palate is catered for.
