What makes a perfect island honeymoon? Perhaps it is the palm-fringed beaches, the endless days of sunshine, the underwater wonders or the sound of the ocean crashing into shore. Maybe it is being anywhere on earth with the love of your life. Possibly, it is all of that, and so much more.

Essential Ingredients for Your Island Honeymoon

To help you decide whether an island honeymoon is right for your and your love, we have put together a list of the most important ingredients required for a picture-perfect, Instagram ready tropical honeymoon.

Some of the most important elements needed for an island honeymoon include the following:


Peace and quiet is always good on any holiday, but on your honeymoon, the last thing you want is noise and non-stop activity. Look for adult only island resorts that are catered to honeymooners. Features to also look out for include adult only dining options (even if the resort itself is not over 18), spas, swimming pools and lounge areas. As far as destinations go, many of the world’s top island destinations offer plenty of chance to relax and unwind. Mauritius, Seychelles, Zanzibar and Maldives are especially suited to couples wanting to spend most of their time off-duty.


Needless to say, romance is equally important. Just about every island seems made for romance, with white sandy beaches, swaying palm trees and turquoise waters. Many resorts cater exclusively to couples, making them ideal for romantic escapes and especially for honeymoons. Some of the most romantic resorts for honeymoons include Veranda Grand Baie Hotel & Spa in Mauritius, Sea Cliff Resort & Spa in Zanzibar, Cocoon Maldives Resort in Maldives and Paradise Sun Hotel in Seychelles.


Although you will likely want to spend a good chunk of your time lying on a beach somewhere, with a cocktail in hand, you may also want to enjoy some adventure on your honeymoon. Each island has its own range of activities. Look for resorts and packages that make it easy to try things such as scuba diving, snorkelling, island tours, hiking, sailing, fishing and nature reserves. Even if your chosen romantic resort does not offer this as part of your all inclusive package, you should be able make bookings from the resort.

Whichever island you decide to choose, and whenever you plan to your honeymoon, one thing is for sure… island honeymoons offer the kind of experience that helps you start your life together as a married couple on an idyllic note.
