The vows have been said and the rice has been thrown… but now what?
Honeymoons aren’t like other holidays. They need to be bigger, better and more romantic than just a regular trip overseas. Not only are they an expression of your new commitment to your spouse, but your honeymoon experiences will form memories that will last a lifetime.

Not sure where you should go for that perfect beach honeymoon? Have no fear. Here are five of the most amazing beach bungalows from around the world:
Aquamare (Virgin Gorda)
Share a kiss with your sweetheart on the coast of the Caribbean! Tucked away from prying eyes, Aquamare is a luxury villa known for its privacy, prestige and pleasurable accommodation. You’ll have your choice of three- to five-bedroom bungalows located right on the beach, with an on-site staff available for any extras you may desire. Yoga classes? Sure! His-and-her spa baths? Don’t laugh until you’ve tried it. With the ocean at your feet and your new spouse by your side, the possibilities are endless, and there’s nothing you can’t enjoy.
Tiki Hutte (France)
Though most honeymooners like to fantasize about sun-soaked days on a tropical island, you can’t forget about those honeymoon nights, either! Tiki Hutte is where you’ll find a beautiful, deeply romantic setting for your first time as newlyweds. Spread a blanket over the sands of St Tropez and enjoy a blazing sunset that will eventually turn into a breathtaking display of stars. Once you’ve had your fill of the night sky, carry your new spouse over the threshold of a plush, comforting cottage.
Golden Buddha Beach Resort (Thailand)
Hidden on the northern shores of Thailand, the Golden Buddha Beach Resort stretches across more than 10km of private beach in the picturesque Koh Phra Thong. Despite its size, it’s relatively unknown to most travelers, meaning your honeymoon will be private and unrushed. You’ll have all the time in the world to swim, surf or just bask in the sun with the person you love most in the world.
Names are deceiving when it comes to Barefoot, a beach bungalow on India’s Andaman Islands. Though it may not sound like a luxurious beach resort, that’s exactly what it is! Bamboo cottages on the outside belie an extravagant interior with all your favorite amenities like mini-bars and air conditioning. The view is even more amazing once you step out the front door: 30-meter mahua trees wave gently in the wind as white sand glitters for several kilometers. If you’re looking for the perfect tropical honeymoon for you and your beloved, Barefoot is the place to be.
Beach Cabin at Tugwell Creek (Canada)
This cozy cottage is the perfect place for two. Not only is it small and private, a great choice for newlyweds, but it also offers a rustic romantic charm complete with a wood-burning stove. Birds will sing outside your window as you enjoy gentle waves and a spectacular ocean-side view of Gordon’s Beach. Cross your fingers and you may even spot sea otters or a school of dolphins from your beach bungalows!
