OUR TOP 10 HONEYMOON DESTINATIONS
FROM AROUND THE WORLD
We’ve collected the definitive list: Here, the top 10 honeymoon destinations around the world.
For some, the idea of a home wedding is a no-brainer. With most—if not all—of your family and friends within driving distance, sentimental locations and tried-and-tested vendors are all on menu. Not to mention the home-ground advantage of getting to tour, trial and pick your wedding details personally, for everything from décor to drinks.
But for others, the thought of a destination wedding is something of a siren’s call.
While it certainly comes with its own difficulties—having to plan from afar, not all your guests being able to attend, logistical questions of licenses and accommodation—a destination wedding is perfect for the bride who wants an experience unique to her.
We’ve considered the world’s most romantic, untapped, exciting and visually stunning destinations when crafting this list to give you all the reasons you’ll need to visit, and where and when to plan your stay. Here, the ultimate honeymoons to have on your short list.
Having many communal areas Masseria Moroseta encourages kinship of guests, yet there are also many nooks and spaces to enjoy in solitude. is immersed in a world so far above us that no sound from it can reach our ears […] the nothingness that exists before birth, to use Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky’s description of the colour white, which contains all the other colours.
The breakfasts are organic and local and incredibly delicious! Each morning offers a selection of varied foods, ranging from home-baked goods to fresh fruits, organic eggs to local yogurt and muesli.
The splendid building is located in the countryside less than ten minutes by car from the “white town” par excellence, Ostuni, a famous tourist destination in Apulia.

Tucked in the foothills of San Jose Del Cabo is Acre, a lush sanctuary of abundant greenery.

Our first foray into home ownership follows this same philosophy. Acre villas have been designed with the ultimate relaxation in mind. Our indoor-outdoor spaces feature high-end finishes and sustainable construction, villas built with minimal environmental impact.”

Pablo Escobar, you know the one, took over this mid-century beachfront mansion in the 1980s at the height of his reign as an infamous Colombian drug lord, making the luxurious location his playground. Abandoned after his death, the villa was rediscovered in 2003 and was returned to its original owner before being put up for sale only to be snatched up by New York art collector and gallery owner, Lio Malca in 2014.
The former hideaway estate of drug lord Pablo Escobar has been transformed into a five-star hotel on the coast of beautiful Tulum, Mexico. When Escobar died in 1993, the property was abandoned, and it sat largely forgotten until 2012 when Lio Malca, the New York-based art aficionado, rediscovered it. Malca bought the mansion shortly thereafter, working feverishly to inject it with new life, and after several years of fruitful toil, Casa Malca opened to guests in 2015.

Tierra Chiloé opened in September in an ark-like lodge on stilts atop a bluff overlooking an inlet of the sea that’s glassy enough to pass for a lake. Tierra excels at the brand of full-service, all-inclusive vacation that put Chile on the luxury adventure travel map. (I stayed at the Chiloé and Patagonia hotels as a guest of the company, at Atacama several years ago on my own dime.)
There are several high-end lodges in Torres del Paine National Park but none can match Tierra Patagonia‘s architecture. Upon entering the lobby, the layout and panoramic views reminded me of Kangaroo Island’s Southern Ocean Lodge.
The two-story lenga wood structure discreetly curves around Lago Sarmiento, the largest lake in the national park. All 40 guest rooms have unobstructed views of the coruscating lake and snow-capped mountains beyond; sheep and guanaco (an indigenous mammal from the llama family) often frolic in the grass just outside the hotel. .

In the middle of a wheat field, with views on one side to the town of Tudela and on the other to a plateau topped by some of the wind turbines that provide the autonomous region of Navarre with nearly 70 per cent of its electricity. It’s a peaceful spot, but you’ll need a car to reach it.
If you like big dramatic landscapes in remote corners of the world, you’ll love it here. This design hotel stands on the edge of the Bardenas Reales National Park. On one side the desert rolls west towards wind-sculpted hills. On the other, wheat fields stretch back towards the medieval town of Tudela. The hotel was built to blend into this deeply rural landscape and when you drop down a track in the middle of nowhere, you’ll think you’ve washed up at a fruit farm. Wind turbines whirl on a distant ridge while the compound itself is encircled by walls of wooden crates. It’s all nicely filmic, though for a moment you’ll wonder if you’re in the right place.
