The May-June period is a special time of the year. Not much rain, spring-time tomfoolery, and, well, it’s also wedding season! When creating that romantic getaway, do your research, as sometimes, couples expecting the perfect honeymoon trip might stay in a hotel that would ultimately develop into kid-friendly getaway runaway place; and the romance will probably be ultimately ruined. (And no, I am not getting married … yet!)
Listed here are a couple of useful, always true tips:
Hawaii is just awesome. A summer vacation from January ’til December.
July-August is hurricane season within the Caribbean. Peak is August, so better get married early within the year! As great as a Caribbean getaway might be all-year round, the CTO (that is Caribbean Tourism Organization to you) says that August is just rainy season for most of the islands. For those who simply MUST get that Caribbean getaway, islands to think about are the Turks, Caicos, Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao. (The last three being the ABC islands.)
Kids will likely be everywhere, in order romantic as your honey winning over some gigantic plush octopus via a feat of strength on the fair might be, it will be infested with children. Choose spots which are adult/couple-friendly to avoid this quandary.
In line with About.com, the highest 3 honeymoon spots are: Hawaii, Italy and Tahiti. Here are a couple of suggestions for places to remain.
Ritz-Carlton Capalua – For the golfer in your honey, it’s surrounded by three championship golf courses and an actual, operating pineapple plantation. Whether its the exclusive party you would throw within the private Club Suite floor, learning to play golf in the Kapalua Golf Academy, or learning to dive at the scuba clinic, the Ritz-Carlton has it covered. (It’s a bit pricey in Hawaii, but that is, the better of one of the best honeymoon spot of all)
Gallery Hotel Art – This special place has been ranked pretty high over at TripAdvisor – and who am I to argue? Fifty honeymooners who had a memorable experience can’t be wrong – this Ferragamo-owned hotel is just a house of style. I mean, if you are not happy enough to be in Italy, the placement of the hotel’s just right for you – it is just a few blocks away from the culture (food!) situated near Ponte Vecchio. Cozy rooms oozing with elegance and simplicity is the order of the day. The included breakfast will get you your procuitto, panchetta and focaccia on, just before going to the delightful concierge to tell you about spots to go to in the town. All in all, an enormous, gigantic “A”!
Te Tiare Beach Resort – For that “away-from-everyone” romantic getaway. Being accessible only by boat (gift or curse?) – 10 minutes of attending to see the waters would not seem too bad, once you give it some thought. Having only 41 rooms, (you wouldn’t really mind spending your honeymoon with 40 different couples, right?) Te Tiare provides a singular personal touch to people who decide to stay. Everything that encapsulates life in Tahiti is just minutes away, while civilization is just a boat-ride away. Best of seclusion and modern life, I should say.
