Romance is not only in the air – it’s an essential ingredient in many Bridge & Wickers holiday ideas. The choice of where you would most like to spend the most important holiday of a lifetime will of course depend on you but we are confident that our suggestions will inspire those dreams. Our world, for example, includes gorgeous overwater villas on the turquoise waters of the South Seas’ lagoons, luxurious game lodges in the heart of the African bush, a beach all to yourself on an island in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef or your own villa with private pool overlooking Thailand’s Andaman Sea.
Draw up a list of all the ingredients that would make the perfect honeymoon and you’ll find them in Australia. From snoozing in a beach hammock on a tropical island to sleeping under the stars in the Outback, from luxurious retreats famed for their food, wine and service to the buzz of world class cities, your honeymoon in Oz will produce a lifetime of memories.
Scattered over a vast ocean like confetti, the islands of the South Pacific could well have been purpose-built for honeymooners. The blinding white sands, fringed by gentle lagoons and backed by soaring peaks and lush vegetation, will be etched in your memories forever. So will the hotels, unbeatable both for their ocean front locations as well as seamless service and delicious cuisine.
If dramatic scenery coupled with intimate luxury lodges, laced with a few active adventures in the great outdoors, have the makings of a perfect honeymoon you will be thrilled by New Zealand. We would also recommend you spend several days en-route on one of the romantic, Crusoe-like South Pacific islands, on the most idyllic of soft, white sand beaches fringing a peppermint lagoon. Nowhere comes closer to fulfilling those dreams of an island paradise.
East or west, which is best for a honeymoon? If you looking for a backdrop of sensational, dramatic scenery we would steer you to the Rockies, exploring by train or car with a few days in the waterfront city of Vancouver. For Canada at its maritime best hop over to the Atlantic seaboard, combining the sophistication of cities like Montreal and Toronto with some of the world’s wildest seascapes and tastiest seafood, with Niagara Falls, the classic honeymooners haunt, also on the map.
