honeymoon destinations

The founder of lifestyle management company Sigillus, recognised in the Spear’s 500 2019 as one of London’s most influential service providers, Paola Diana has been the go to woman for families, couples and businesses for years and knows all about planning unforgettable honeymoons.

Bora Bora

Named one of the most beautiful islands in the world, the crystal-clear waters, white sand and picturesque mountains exude romance; it is the perfect getaway for couples and its exclusivity makes it all the better. I particularly love Le Meridien Bora Bora, where the overwater bungalows are surrounded by the warm lagoon.

Hayman Island

One of the most remote islands off the shore of Australia, this spectacular island resort offers privacy, white sand and coral reef swirling with colourful fish. It reopens this summer after significant refurbishment; a trip to Australia would be incomplete without a visit to this romantic island.

Fiji

Ranked among the must see islands of the South Pacific, Fiji is truly heaven on earth. Offering the best private island resorts – notably Turtle Island it is known for the kind nature and hospitality of the locals and is and is the perfect getaway for newlyweds.

Hawaii

The gorgeous scenery, beautiful beaches and the aloha spirit keep Hawaii on almost every couple’s wish list. The Four Seasons resort is idyllic – the perfect place to unwind and disconnect from the world.

Maldives

The level of luxury here is out of this world – there are few places better suited to taking it easy and enjoying the good life. Try the Soneva Fushi resort, where the sand is as pristine as snow and spacious luxury villas are hidden amongst dense foliage on a private island.

Troia Peninsula

For those looking closer to home, Portugal’s Troia Peninsula is a superb choice. Known for its tasty cuisine and luxury hotels, including the Troia Design Hotel, it is surrounded by spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. Travellers can get up close and person with dolphins that live just off the coast – boat tours departing from the marina offer incredible opportunities to see them in their natural habitat.
