Maldives: Kuramathi and Kandolhu

Kuramathi Maldives

Famed for being the ultimate honeymoon destination for lovers across the globe, the Maldives offers the perfect pair of islands for a luxurious beach honeymoon: Kuramathi and Kandolhu.

The larger of the two, Kuramathi, is one of Maldives' most popular islands and honeymoon resorts. There’s plenty to do here, from snorkelling on the house reef to relaxing in beachfront infinity pools, tanning by the sea, and cruising the waters at sunset, to name a few. 

A food-lovers paradise, honeymooning couples will delight in the fantastic range of restaurants here. Indulge in a sumptuous island barbecue on the beach, go to Siam Garden for authentic Thai dishes, and treat yourself to some fine dining at Duniye. The laid-back Sand Bar invites you to snuggle up on a bean bag with a cocktail, and the trendy Champagne Loft boasts an extensive Champagne and bubbly list.

With a phenomenal range of modern facilities, lavish water villas, and trails through fragrant gardens to pristine beaches, Kuramathi has everything you could need for a dreamy escape.

But if you want more, pair this with a stay at the tranquil Kandolhu, just a quick sail southwest of Kuramathi. Kandolhu has only 30 villas and is often voted one of the world’s most romantic hotels, making it a must for your once-in-a-lifetime getaway.

Beautiful Kandolhu presents the best of both worlds: a picture-perfect tiny island with a lush green interior encircled by glorious white sands and coral reefs, yet with a fantastic choice of restaurants that belie its tiny size. With five exclusive à la carte restaurants on the island, this intimate setting provides the perfect atmosphere for you and your SO to soak up each other’s company.

These two gorgeous islands couldn’t be more different from one another, so they make an excellent combination for couples seeking variety in their holiday.

Exclusive to Kuoni in the UK, the team offers an exceptional all-inclusive package for the ultimate Maldives escape.

Greece: Mykonos and Santorini

Blue-domed white buildings overlooking the sea and islands in Santorini, Greece

For the best twin-centre holidays in Greece, Kuoni can’t recommend Mykonos and Santorini enough as enchanting escapes for a romantic honeymoon in the Cyclades, southeast of mainland Greece. 

Indulge in the pursuit of pleasure in bohemian Mykonos. With its bustling nightlife and blissful summer ambience, Mykonos is ideal for couples looking to party on their honeymoon. 

Mykonos has that quintessential Greek charm that attracts luxury lovers – whether lounging on the beach or dancing in the club. For your stay in Mykonos, Kuoni can recommend an all-inclusive stay for the stunning Grace Mykonos

This tranquil sanctuary overlooks the glittering Aegean Sea and blends classic Greek architecture with sleek, contemporary style. On your first day, wake up to a late Champagne breakfast before relaxing by the pool or heading straight to the boutique spa. 

You might be reluctant to leave your love nest, but when you do, you can embark on amazing wine and food tours, adventurous boat trips, vibrant nightlife activities, and one-of-a-kind Cycladic photoshoots. 

One of the most renowned islands in the world, Santorini is ideal for part two of your magical island-hopping honeymoon. It's famed for being on many people’s bucket lists, so you can check Santorini off yours for your post-wedding vacay. 

This Insta-friendly island is just a ferry away from Mykonos, but even journeying to your next location will include awe-inspiring views of the Greek islands. White-washed buildings and blue-domed churches are nestled into the cliffsides of this ancient place, with calderas peppering the landscape and enriching the scenery from its volcanic history. 

Stay at the romantic and exclusive Grace Santorini, Auberge Resorts Collection. Best described as an architect’s dream, this hotel is carved into the hillside and features an award-winning, heated infinity pool. With front-row seats of the sunset on your private sea-view terrace, you’ll find yourselves on cloud nine. 

Active couples will adore the coastal hike from Oia to Fira, where spellbinding vistas provide the backdrop to your romantic holiday.

Jewel-like islands where you can hike, dive, and lie on white-sand beaches all on the same day. The rhythmic sound of steel drum beats. Rum punch delivered directly to your sun lounger… 

Life in the Caribbean is famously laidback, but each island has its own character and style. Pair up Barbados and the Grenadines for an unforgettable twin-centre honeymoon. 

The birthplace of rum and big on personality, Barbados is a firm favourite for its mouth-watering food, dazzling beaches, and social spots where you can chat with friendly locals. 

Not just a haven for natural scenery and turquoise waters, the island is brimming with phenomenal historical sites that will tickle any history-loving brain. You may even choose to visit during the Barbados Sugar and Rum Season between January and April. 

You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to luxe hotels – go all out with a stay at the A-listers’ favourite, Sandy Lane, or hang out at the fresh new O2 Beach Club & Spa by Ocean Hotels.

Over on the emerald-clad islands of the Grenadines, unspoilt and sufficiently inaccessible (so it can stay that way), it’s all about the serene Caribbean experience. Wild and untamed, this glorious setting has a jaw-dropping landscape of lush flora and unique fauna – it’s no wonder it was chosen as one of the film sets for Pirates of the Caribbean. 

Immerse yourself in the local scene without crowds to distract you and explore the coral reefs, volcanic peaks, and pristine beaches. Switch off at a retreat like Palm Island Resort & Spa, a 135-acre private island paradise where you can kayak or snorkel to spot turtles in the mornings and then sway the afternoons away in a hammock. 

There’s lots more to do, like cycling on rainforest trails, watersports, and visiting the local towns brimming with spirit.

Visiting more than one island allows you to see the best of both sides of the culture and nature of the Caribbean. With different but equally captivating atmospheres, Kuoni can set you up with the perfect resorts and experiences Barbados and the Grenadines have to offer.

Sandy beaches, a diverse culture, and incredible nature come together on the tropical tear-drop island of Sri Lanka, where unique and unexpected adventures await you. 

Sri Lanka has endless beauty, and pairing a stay in the Cultural Triangle & The Hill Country with a beach holiday in Bentota invites couples to go off the beaten track for a unique experience.

More than just a destination for heavenly beaches, Sri Lanka is a paradise for culture-loving couples looking to learn about life, art, and history on their honeymoon. 

Explore the Cultural Triangle & The Hill Country in the heart of the island, where Buddhist temples and fortresses, ruins of sacred ancient cities, and relics of a colonial age stand as historical landmarks. 

And if that’s not quite enough to tempt you, there are still rolling tea plantations and wildlife-rich parks and reserves where elephants, leopards, crocodiles, and sloth bears roam free to discover.

Kuoni’s package includes a personal driver who will safely get you wherever you want. Your driver can also suggest remarkable places you won’t find in any guidebook – there’s nothing quite like having someone who knows the island inside-out to show you hidden treasures.

For your beach paradise escape, Kuoni can hook you up with an all-inclusive stay in the lavish Cinnamon Bentota Beach. Nestled on the Bentota coastline, this tranquil beachfront retreat is the epitome of luxury in southwest Sri Lanka. 

Immersed in wild coconut groves by a mangrove-edged river, its vibrant grounds are not the only jaw-dropping feature of this resort. While most of Cinnamon Bentota Beach has been renovated, the original lobby by architect Geoffrey Bawa remains and is one of the island’s most inspiring designs. 

A tribute to classic Sri Lankan style, rich tapestry adorns the ceiling held by soaring wooden columns on a polished concrete floor. During your stay, you can drift down the Bentota River, dine in the exquisite all-day restaurant, partake in watersports, rent bikes, and relax on the beach.

Once you’re all tuckered out from your adventure in La Réunion, head to Mauritius for a glorious seaside retreat. Fringed with spectacular coral reefs and pure white sands lapped by crystal clear waters, Mauritius is a coveted castaway island and a top honeymoon choice.
