5 Unusual Suspect Luxury Honeymoon Ideas

luxury honeymoon ideas

Oof, what a title! But it’s directly what it says on the cover – we promise. A honeymoon marks the beginning of a couple’s married journey together, symbolising everything lovely and nice, adventure, and the exploration of new beginnings. And while traditional honeymoons often involve beach resorts or stunning European cities (not that anything is wrong with that!), some couples might just seek out something more unique and unconventional to celebrate their union. If you are one of those, here are five ideas to indulge in some luxury togetherness in unexpected ways.

How about an Underwater Paradise Retreat?

Just imagine falling asleep and waking up surrounded by vibrant coral reefs and exotic marine life. Yep, that’s possible! For couples seeking something a bit more otherworldly, an underwater hotel or resort offers the perfect blend of luxury and adventure. Destinations like the Maldives, Fiji, or Dubai boast underwater suits with panoramic views of the crystal-clear ocean floor. Excellently coupled with snorkelling, diving, or simply lounging in your private underwater oasis, of course, creating unforgettable memories beneath the waves. What a time to be alive.

Oh – a Remote Island Retreat!

For something else that is both luxurious and intimate, we can only recommend a secluded and remote island retreat. Have a look at hidden treasures like the islands of Seychelles, the Cook Islands, or Palawan in the Philippines, where you can unwind in a private villa or overwater bungalow surrounded by the most pristine of beaches. You could even choose a completely privately owned island, hop over with a private jet such as a spacious Global 7500, and enjoy being stranded on a lonely island (with spa treatments, candlelit dinners, and romantic sunsets, of course). 

Maybe a Glamping Safari Tour?

Looking for a bit more adrenaline? Swap traditional hotel stays for a glamorous camping (glamping) safari in the heart of the African wilderness. Here, the most majestic wildlife can be spotted up close, while still enjoying the comforts of luxury tented camps or lodges. Destinations such as Kenya’s Masai Mara, Tanzania’s Serengeti, or Botswana’s Okavango Delta are perfect for this and offer exclusive experiences complete with gourmet dining, guided tours, and breathtaking landscapes. 

Well then, an Exotic Treehouse?

Lucky are those who can channel their inner child. And what better way to do it than in a treehouse? Nestled amidst lush rainforests, dense jungles, or serene woodland settings, these elevated sanctuaries are packed with luxury amenities, all while being completely immersed in nature – and we simply love them. There are fantastic destinations to choose from, too, such as Bali, eco-lodges in Costa Rice, or canopy suites in Thailand. During the day, you can spend your days exploring the surrounding wilderness, enjoying spa treatments – or simply relaxing on your private deck with panoramic views of the forest canopy.

Okay, we got it: Arctic Igloos.

Not everyone’s a fan of the warmth, though. So, here’s something for couples seeking an icy escape: Arctic igloos. Yep, that’s right! Journey to remote destinations like Finland’s Lapland, Norway’s Tromsø or Canada’s Yukon Territory, where you can cozy up in a glass-roofed igloo under – fingers crossed! – the Northern Lights. There’s nothing quite as stunning as an unpolluted night sky and the breathtaking beauty of the aurora borealis dancing across it. Of course, fun things like husky sledding, snowmobiling, or reindeer safaris can be enjoyed here, too!

A honeymoon shouldn’t just be a business-as-usual holiday. It’s a fantastic opportunity to embark on something extraordinary – and maybe one of those ideas above tickled your fancy just right.
