First you fall in love, then you get engaged and get married. And what comes then? An amazing honeymoon, of course! This week, in an attempt to provide all you love birds with a bit of inspiration, we’re revealing five very special destinations absolutely guaranteed to give you that unforgettable honeymoon you’ve always wanted!
The honeymoon for adventurers: take off for South Africa
Looking for a scintillating mix of adventure, unbelievable nature and inspiring cities? If that sounds like you, then South Africa should be right at the top of your honeymoon list!
While you’re down there, don’t miss out on the eclectic city of Cape Town, complete with its excellent restaurants and breathtaking views from atop Table Mountain. Our personal highlight, just outside Cape Town itself: the penguin colony at Boulder’s Beach in Simon’s Town. How many of us can claim to have swum with wild penguins on their honeymoon, we wonder? And if you like things even more adventurous, think about signing up for sky diving north of Cape Town! Alternatively, you could travel along the Whale Coast Route, where (with a bit of luck) you can discover whales and dolphins from viewing points along the coastal road.
Our hotel tip for unforgettable moments is at the Kagga Kamma Nature Reserve, not far from Cape Town. Here, you’ll find breathtaking open-air suites in unique surroundings. There’s no better place to lean back and relax.
The honeymoon for wellness fans: take off for Japan
If you’re fascinated by innovation, millennia of tradition, serious sushi and a sometimes bizarre culture, then Japan is the perfect destination for your honeymoon! In the Land of the Rising Sun, you can expect to find a richly varied programme above all else. How about a museum tour of the World of Instant Noodles, for instance? Have you ever bathed in red wine, green tea or even coffee? Because that’s what awaits you at the Yunessun themed spa – and it will definitely help you get over the stress of wedding preparations.
Our hotel tip for your honeymoon in Japan offers incomparable views of Mount Fuji. At the Hoshinoya Fuji, you’ll be able to drink to your future together in comfortable and particularly stylish homes for glamping!
The honeymoon for romantics: take off for France
Pure romance – that’s what France is all about! This is one place where they know exactly how to spoil loving couples and newly-weds: with delicious cuisine, fine wines and – of course – the right atmosphere. It doesn’t matter whether you’re heading for Paris or the Côte d’Azur; there’s little doubt you’ll look back on your wonderful trip to France with pleasure!
If your honeymoon takes you to the south of France, we recommend you visit a true gem of a hotel: La Bastide de Gorges. The property is an ancestral castle with views of one of France’s most beautiful villages. Pure romance!
The honeymoon for nature fans: take off for California
Looking for the perfect mix of nature and cities? If so, then you should definitely do your first trip abroad as a married couple in California! The US state offers top national parks on the one hand, which are perfect for just wandering through, and cities such as Los Angeles and San Francisco on the other, whose modern chic you will also want to explore.
California is best discovered off your own back, travelling by rental car. Glamping is also very big here, however, so be sure not to miss out on the impressive accommodation being offered some way outside the cities and nearby the national parks, where you can spend the night in chic tents and watch the stars twinkling in the night sky at the very heart of nature. The perfect place to plan your romantic future together!
Our hotel tip for unique honeymoons in California offers you all-round nature! The super-chic Post Ranch Inn Hotel has breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, and you can finish off the day sipping Sundowners by the pool.

@jetsetterdotcom deems Sierra Mar one of the most scenic restaurants in the world. What are your favorite dishes between our Morro Bay oysters with black garlic and horseradish hollandaise, pot au feu-style beef tenderloin and Wagyu short rib, and honey glazed ricotta fritters?
The honeymoon for sun-worshippers: take off for Florida
When you imagine your dream honeymoon, are white beaches and a Caribbean atmosphere the first things you think of? A direct flight from Vienna to Florida will make these wishes come true! What could possibly be more romantic than waking up in the morning with an amazing sea view from your room? In Miami, the Florida Keys and Sanibel Island, that’s exactly what you can expect to experience every day – and much more besides!
If you’re looking for a taste of adventure on your honeymoon, be sure not to miss the theme parks in Orlando. Dare to take the wild roller-coaster rides together, and immerse yourself in the magical worlds of Walt Disney or Harry Potter!
Our hotel tip in Miami Beach is extraordinarily chic and has an incredible love of detail. At the St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort, the focus is firmly on luxury and feeling good. What could possibly be nicer, we wonder, than having to choose between the pool and the sea?
