For many people, a honeymoon is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It offers you the chance to have an extra special trip away with an excuse to spend a little bit more money than you might normally do. There is rarely a better time to celebrate than after a wedding, so here are some of the ways you could take your honeymoon to the next level and make it even more luxurious.
#1 Create a Multi-Destination Trip
You don’t have to stay in one place during your honeymoon. If you would prefer to visit multiple destinations, consider a trip that incorporates a few of your top locations. You could rent a villa in Turks & Caicos before moving north to the beautiful Bahamas or further south to the stunning islands of St Lucia or Barbados.
#2 Add Extras to Your Flights
Paying extra for airport upgrades can make your honeymoon a lot smoother and more enjoyable. This is particularly true for people who are nervous travelers or find flying stressful.
You can upgrade your flights in a few different ways. Book yourselves into the lounge for an hour or two before your flight leaves and enjoy all-inclusive drinks, snacks, and comfort. Pay for extra legroom or move to the front section of the plane for better service and more space. If business or first-class options are available, consider going all the way for the ultimate luxury flight.
#3 Alert the Hotel Beforehand
If you let the hotel know that you are coming to celebrate your honeymoon, they are likely to throw in some free upgrades or give you some special treatment. If you want to surprise your new spouse, you could even have gifts or other luxuries ordered to the hotel ahead of your arrival.
#4 Book Luxury Treatments
After all the stress and excitement of a wedding, it’s important that you both find time to relax and unwind. Booking a luxury massage or other spa treatment when you arrive can help to get your honeymoon off to a great start. Couples’ massages and spa days are very popular in many sunny destinations, particularly with newlyweds.
#5 Plan the First Night
Planning beforehand and having everything arranged for when you arrive can make a huge difference to your honeymoon. In particular, it’s important to plan the first evening – book a restaurant for dinner, ensure you are able to check in once you arrive at the hotel, and order any essentials beforehand to save time on shopping.
#6 Upgrade Your Transport
When traveling to the airport or after arriving at your destination, consider upgrading your travel options. Take private taxis rather than public transport or hire a limousine to take you from the airport to your hotel, or from the hotel to dinner later in the evening.
There are many ways to make your honeymoon an extra special experience. From upgrading travel options to ensuring you have plenty of downtime and relaxation, you can make your honeymoon a luxury trip to remember!
