Contrary to what many people thought, a honeymoon is not just for young couples. Even if you have been married for many years and are already in your senior years, you can always go to some luxury honeymoon destinations and celebrate your love for each other. If you’re wondering where to go, refer to our list of the top 5 luxury honeymoon destinations for mature couples.
1. The Maldives
The Maldives remains one of the world’s top destinations for a honeymoon due to its unique setting. This stunning archipelago of 1,200 islands lies in the middle of the Indian Ocean, far from the maddening crowd. Here, you can guarantee a relaxing honeymoon, surrounded by crystal clear waters, and all you hear are the crashing of the waves. Mature couples seeking privacy can enjoy a picnic on one of the remote islands of the Maldives. Those seeking an adrenaline rush can go for higher-speed water activities, such as kayaking, jet skiing, or kite surfing.
Set in the middle of the desert, Dubai is an opulent oasis attracting mature honeymooners looking for a relaxing luxury holiday. It’s home to some of the world’s most luxurious hotels and resorts, not to mention high-end shopping amenities. Whether you will relax by the pool, discover the area’s rich cultural traditions, or shop to your heart’s content, you’ll find Dubai a perfect destination for your honeymoon.
What more can you say about Italy. From the incredible history of Rome, the Trevi Fountain, the cobbled streets of Naples or the stunning views of the Amalfi coast. Italy is a never ending destination for mature couples looking for incredible luxury Italy travel experiences. Whether you want to rent a mini and ride around Milan, ride a gondola through Venice, wander the various museums of Tuscany or eat lot and lots of pasta in Rome, not to mention pizza. No other reasons needed to choose Italy for a honeymoon really.
4. Sri Lanka
If you’re looking to enjoy a luxury honeymoon on a budget, Sri Lanka is perfect. This tropical island nation is home to many beautiful beaches and luxury resorts that do not cost as much as its neighbour, the Maldives. And just like its neighbour, Sri Lanka offers a variety of beautiful beaches suitable for everyone – from secluded coves to lively beaches lined with bars and restaurants. For a taste of culture and history, head to the Galle Fort. Built by the Portuguese in 1588, the fort exudes an old-world colonial charm. Wander along its cobbled streets and discover unique boutiques, cosy cafes, and excellent restaurants.
Mexico is one of the world’s top destinations for a honeymoon. It’s a wonderful destination for mature couples looking to relax on white-sand beaches while enjoying refreshing cocktail drinks. Most honeymooners would head straight to Cancun, but there’s more to Mexico than this popular tourist destination. You can also go to the Riviera Maya, which you can best explore on a luxury cruise. When cruising around the Riviera Maya, visit one of its top golf courses to play a round of golf and indulge in a romantic dinner at one of its world-class restaurants.
If you’re looking for a gorgeous island that is not as touristy as the Maldives or those islands in the Caribbean, consider going to Mauritius. Located off the coast of Madagascar, the island is home to lush forests, volcanic mountains, and luxury resorts perched beside picturesque beaches. The island offers so much more to discover beyond its beautiful beaches. It’s also home to Le Morne Brabant, a UNESCO World Heritage Site boasting stunning views and has an interesting history of being a colonial hideaway for slaves.
