If you’re lucky enough to be in the middle of planning a dream honeymoon, you should know that the world is your oyster. There has never been a better time to jet off on a romantic adventure. The destinations are varied, the cultures are exhilarating, the travel options get better every year – and so do the deals. At Travelbag, we love helping people plan their perfect honeymoon.  You bring the ideas, we'll sort the logistics. It's our job, after all.

A honeymoon is a time when you can truly treasure being alone together as newlyweds. Work, deadlines and bills should all melt into nothing for a few weeks. It should be an adventure that defines the beginning of your life together. You know what that means – it’s time to think about jetting off to exotic shores. Imagine with golden beaches, lush rainforests, luxury resorts and ample pampering opportunities. From the Caribbean to Southeast Asia, we've got a million-and-one honeymoon options for you. But, to help you narrow it down, we've picked out the most exotic destinations for you to enjoy a relaxing start to your marriage. Take a look...


The Seychelles

The Seychelles is a breathtakingly beautiful archipelago situated in the Indian Ocean. It’s a natural paradise, filled with wildlife reserves, nature sanctuaries, soft golden beaches and the bluest waters you’ve ever likely to dip a toe into. For honeymooners, there’s no better destination – despite its small size, it’s absurdly easy to find a deserted beach here. If you want to pretend like you’re the only two people in the world, a honeymoon to the Seychelles is the perfect choice. With a hundred and fifteen separate islets to explore, your only regret will be; having to return home and leave it all behind.




It’s strange to think that there might still be destinations relatively untouched by mainstream tourism out there, but it’s true – and the Malaysian archipelago of Langkawi is one of them. It’s known as the jewel of Kedah, and it’s made up of a hundred and four separate islands in the Andaman Sea. As far as peace and quiet go, you simply can’t beat Langkawi. It’s a truly magical place, with mangrove forests, rainforests, sand stone mountains, tidal flats, caves and reef systems all out there and ready to be explored.

The Maldives

This series of coral reefs and tropical islands is one of the most popular honeymoon destinations of all time. There’s a tonne of reasons why – the first being its sheer natural beauty, and the second its laidback way of life. A honeymoon in the Maldives is defined by indulgence – whether that's enjoying too may cocktails, eating until you can't move, or snorkelling until your fingers have shrivelled into a prune-like state. There's a variety of stunning resorts in the Maldives, so it’s up to you how far the luxury goes. For some, it’s all about getting back to nature. For others, it’s about a plush room, good company and knowing that you don’t have to move from your sun lounger until it gets dark. Tempted? Find out which Maldives island is right for you.




Indonesia's Bali is famous for many things> Volcanic beaches, mischievous wildlife, soaring landscapes, superb culinary treats and a vibrant national culture. If you’re looking to get back to nature, but don’t want to exert yourself doing it, a honeymoon to Bali is the right choice for you. On this island, the natives certainly aren’t shy – if you’ve heard anything about the monkey populations in Indonesia, you’ll know that they’re cheekier than a toddler rifling through the chocolate drawer. With a helping hand from our travel experts, you could be meeting them in no time – not to mention, swimming and diving in crystal-clear waters, eating until you pop, and lounging in a top-of-the-range spa.



A honeymoon to Mauritius will take your breath away. From that first step out of airport, we guarantee that you’ll be in love with this exotic paradise. Mauritius is reputed to be one of the friendliest spots on the planet and a real cultural melting-pot. It’s hard to resist the natural diversity and cultural magnificence of such a place, especially when you’ve spent the afternoon swimming and sunbathing in one of its many hidden lagoons. If you want to explore, take a look at the best places to visit in Mauritius, inlcuding the island's famous Seven Coloured Earths.
