Adrenaline-fuelled honeymoons for adventurous couples
It looks like many of us are wanting to fill our precious honeymoon holidays with more action and adventure than ever this year. After not being able to travel for 2 years, we’re craving a trip of a lifetime. If you’re a real adventure-seeker you’ll want to choose somewhere that offers a variety of activities and adventures.
Adventure honeymoon destination: Iceland!
Perfect for adventurous couples! Iceland is an idyllic and devastatingly romantic destination. You can spend your honeymoon somewhere truly unusual like an ice hotel or a glass aurora dome – an impeccable choice if you want to lie back and enjoy the best light show on earth! Iceland is also home to a wealth of amazing adventure activities that will give newlyweds the adrenaline hit of a lifetime – snowmobiling, river rafting, ice climbing, glacier hiking, skiing, snowboarding, ice caving, horse riding, surfing, scuba diving, plain old hiking… the list goes on!
Top tip: Head to the Blue Lagoon, a luxurious and surreal outdoor geothermal spa located in a lava field. The only way to really unwind after all those adrenaline-fuelled activities!
Wellness spa escapes for newlyweds
With health and vitality high on everyone’s agenda, wellness escapes have become a sought-after way to spend some downtime after the whirlwind of planning a wedding. Think yoga retreats and dreamy spa getaways – places where you can pamper yourself and indulge in some post-wedding bliss, a place that provides the perfect headspace to start married life.
Wellness honeymoon destination: St Lucia!
Jade Mountain Resort on the Caribbean island of St Lucia has a honeymoon package that includes personalised spa treatments like The Alchemy of Two Romantic Spa Ritual. Couples can enjoy the spa experiences in their private sanctuary suite complete with infinity pool and panoramic ocean views. Jade mountain is also known for its exquisite cocoa beans, offering newlyweds a unique opportunity to enjoy the sensory wonders of chocolate-making workshops.
What to wear on a spa honeymoon getaway: honeymoon pyjamas
It’s got to be luxury all the way! You want the fabric on your skin to feel as perfect as your surroundings, something that our bridal PJs and robes achieve effortlessly. The silky softness of our garments feel just as great after a sensational spa treatment, a dip in a hot tub, or when waking up in the morning to a beautiful sunrise, feeling refreshed and ready for a luxurious day ahead.

Not all couples want to spend their honeymoon relaxing to the max, or engaging in outdoor adventures! If art, culture, and the buzz of city life are what drives your interests as a couple then a chic city honeymoon getaway could be just the ticket. Head to a place where skyscraper honeymoon suites deliver great views and there are museums and galleries-a-plenty.
Luxury city honeymoon destination: New York!
This city has it all – high-rise penthouse suites, a city skyline that is the epitome of romance, the Gugenheim, MoMA, the Met, Broadway, and some of the finest fine dining in the world. New York also has plentiful open spaces to explore, from the leafy loveliness of Central Park to the golden sands of Manhattan beach in Brooklyn, or if you fancy a day trip out of the city, Niagara Falls.

Enjoy a stress-free holiday and less travel time with a minimoon. If you’re getting married around the Cotswolds area, why not take a few days break and enjoy your wedding for longer?
