Unique Honeymoon Ideas For 2021

The cake has been cut, the bouquet has been tossed, and the guest book has been signed. The big day might be over, but your adventure is only beginning - and what better way to kick off a lifetime of wedded bliss than with a once-in-a-lifetime trip? And while there’s nothing wrong with a classic beach resort honeymoon, more and more couples are opting for something a bit more unique. Read on for inspiration for a truly unforgettable honeymoon experience!

Alternative Hits

It might be tempting to stick with a tried and true locale - after all, the most popular honeymoon destinations are popular for a reason. But often there are just slightly alternative locations that offer all the benefits of these greatest hits, plus more! For instance, Lana’i, the smallest and most secluded of the Hawaiian Islands, offers all of the gorgeous beaches and luxury resorts of Maui - without the crowds and commercialization. Rangiroa is a more culturally authentic answer to the classic honeymoon spot Bora Bora and is considered one of the best locations in the world for snorkeling and scuba diving. And Copenhagen is a great alternative to Venice - the Danish capital offers canal tours just as charming and romantic as the famous Italian gondola rides!


The African landscape offers a wealth of diverse honeymoon adventures. If you’ve always longed to venture on safari, check out the Singita Faru Faru Lodge in Tanzania - you and your beau will be able to honeymoon right on a reserve, with opportunities to spot the famed animals of the Serengeti on foot or even in a hot air balloon! For an even more intimate wildlife experience, book a stay at Giraffe Manor in Kenya. The adorable guest house is situated in the middle of a giraffe sanctuary, and the gentle giants are free to roam the grounds and even pop in for breakfast!

Safaris aren’t the only attraction Africa has to offer. Cape Town, South Africa is a honeymoon destination boasting breathtaking beaches, majestic mountain ranges, and vineyards to rival Napa. You and your new spouse may even find some unexpected feathered friends here - Boulders Beach is famous for its penguin colony!


Baby, it’s cold outside! While tropical beaches might be more traditional postnuptial destinations, there’s plenty of romance available in the world’s chilliest corners. The Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort in Finland offers a thrilling luxury honeymoon experience, with smoke saunas, ice swimming, and every winter sport imaginable. But what really set the resort apart are its famous glass igloos, which are perfect for stargazing and even viewing the Northern Lights.

Iceland is another great option for a wintrier honeymoon. Its appeal lies largely in its diversity - you can hike glaciers, spelunk in volcanos, and relax in famed natural hot springs and geothermal baths.

Southeast Asia

If you or your dearly beloved is a history or anthropology junkie, a honeymoon in Southeast Asia is a dream come true. Counties like Laos, Cambodia, and Myanmar are home to incredible ancient temples dating back to as far as the ninth century! In addition, these destinations offer unbelievable scenery and amazing cuisine.

So, if you and your sweetheart are looking for a trip that’s truly special, consider any one of these unique honeymoon destinations!

5 Breathtaking Resorts In The Hawaiian Islands For Your Honeymoon 

When it comes to choosing a location for your honeymoon, Hawaii is an obvious choice. Its gorgeous white sandy beaches, lush tropical rainforests, and thriving culture make it well-suited to romance and adventure. But with seven islands and countless incredible resorts to choose from, it can be tough to narrow down your exact destination. 

Here are our five unique picks for the best honeymoon resorts available in Hawaii. 

Hotel Wailea, Maui 

Hawaii is just as popular for families as it is for honeymooners, so if you’re worried that your romantic getaway will be interrupted by hordes of excited kids, you should consider an adults-only resort like the Hotel Wailea in Maui. In addition to being kid-free, the resort is absolutely stunning, situated across 15 acres of Zen garden inspired landscape complete with waterfalls and peacefully winding paths.

The resort isn’t directly on the beach, which may seem like a drawback, but it adds to the hotel’s exclusive and peaceful atmosphere. There is complimentary valet service to the beach (just a five-minute drive), and the hotel’s restaurant offers pre-packed picnic baskets for its guests, so you won’t have to go back to the resort for a lunch break. 

Hotel Wailea also offers tons of amazing experiences, cleverly organized on their website by “travel personality”. These include in-suite massages, floating sound baths, sunset sailing, and even a tropical mixology class. Best of all these offerings is a seven-course private dinner served to you and your sweetheart in a secluded and romantic treehouse. 

Kahala Hotel & Resort, Oahu 

The Kahala Hotel opened in 1964 and has hosted a long list of celebrities, dignitaries, and politicians, including Frank Sinatra, John Wayne, Drew Barrymore, Queen Elizabeth II, and even the Dalai Lama. It is known for its legendary service staff, who attend to guests’ every need and even know many of them by name. 

Even though it’s located just outside the buzzing metropolis of Honolulu, the Kahala is a veritable oasis, offering 800 feet of private beach, an oceanfront pool, and several acres of gardens and waterfalls. It even has its own lagoon that is home to a family of bottlenose dolphins - you can book an encounter session for you and your new spouse to swim and play with them!

If that’s not enough, the hotel grounds also feature the Kahala Kissing Point, which is considered one of the best places in all the islands to watch the romantic Hawaiian sunset.

Royal Hawaiian Resort, Oahu

Another historical gem in Oahu, the Royal Hawaiian is located in Waikiki, a famous neighborhood known for its surf beaches and nightlife. The hotel was built in 1927, and is an iconic Moorish style building painted a charming pink. 

Besides its history, the Royal Hawaiian’s standout feature is its Abhasa Spa, which Spas of America named the number two spa in the United States in 2015. It is an entirely outdoor spa, situated in a stunning tropical garden, and offers plenty of relaxing treatments for you and your new spouse to enjoy. 

Ko’a Kea Hotel & Resort, Kauai

If you and your partner are more excited by Hawaii’s natural wonders than by its tourist attractions, Kauai is the island for you. Known as the Garden Isle, Kauai is the quietest and most secluded of the Hawaiian islands, and offers plenty of hiking and other outdoor activities. 

Located on Poipu Beach in the town of Koloa, the Ko’a Kea Hotel & Resort offers the closest accommodations to the waterfront on all the island. The hotel focuses on rest and rejuvenation, and has a natural spa featuring outdoor seaside treatment cabanas as well as a couples suite. But, if you’re craving adventure, the resort also offers onsite watersports such as snorkeling, paddleboarding, and surfing lessons. 

Holualoa Inn, Big Island

A Hawaiian honeymoon doesn’t have to mean staying at a massive resort. The Holualoa Inn is a charming bed and breakfast, perfect for an intimate and romantic getaway. You and your spouse can choose from four unique guest rooms or two suites, or even one of the inn’s two standalone units for an even more intimate experience. 

The inn offers honeymoon packages that include a 90 minute couples massage, and gourmet breakfasts and to-go lunches for beach days. You and your sweetheart will be greeted by a traditional lei ceremony, and will find your bed covered in silk rose petals and flanked with chocolates and champagne. 

This is also a great option for adventurous couples, since Big Island has plenty to explore, from deserts to rainforests to snowy mountains!
