Brownell's Top 10 Honeymoon Destinations

You've planned the perfect wedding,  now lets not forget about the honeymoon!  This week we teamed up with Brownell Travel,  who gave us a few of their top spots for 2015! From the breathtaking over-the-water huts of Tahiti to Europe’s most romantic city,  Brownell Travel has been planning honeymoons for over 100 years.  Read on for the most over-the-top and romantic destinations from renowned honeymoon specialist Deborah Barth.


ITALY Delicious cuisine, world-renowned wine, beautiful sites—Italy is simply a fan-favorite!  Whether you want to experience the history and architecture in Rome and Florence, hike through Cinque Terre,  or relax on the beaches of the Amalfi Coast,  Italy has something for everybody.  Be sure to toast with a crisp glass of Prosecco or limoncello!


HAWAII The Hawaiian Islands feature great history, culture,  and beaches.  Whale watching,  swimming with dolphins,  hiking in Waimea Canyon,  and power hang gliding on Maui are just a few of the activities for adventurous couples.  Each island is so different from the next — it’s a destination full of excitement and romance without needing a passport!


TURKS AND CAICOS White powder beaches and Tiffany Blue waters,  Turks and Caicos is a wonderful destination filled with luxury resorts.  With the ease of dining at different restaurants or hanging out at your resort,  couples can spend plenty of time relaxing.  Also be sure to dive for conch — a must for this destination!


BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS The BVIs are a magical place you will love at first sight.  A unique Caribbean destination, this spot showcases lush,  green islands dotting the horizon everywhere you look.  If privacy is a top priority, there are many secluded resorts on gorgeous private beaches with easy access by ferry to hop around to the different islands.  For an authentic BVI experience,  stop by The Soggy Dollar on Jost Van Dyke for their signature cocktail,  the Painkiller.


TAHITI Often described as 2 hours past Hawaii but 50 years behind,  Tahiti receives in one year the amount of tourists Hawaii receives in one day.  This is your romantic, secluded destination with amazing overwater bungalows and crystal clear water.  If you’ve got the time and the budget,  there is nothing quite like French Polynesia!


MEXICO Mexico is an easy international destination being only a few hours of travel time from most US cities.  Filled with Mayan ruins,  cenotes,  beaches,  and watersports, there are so many great options to consider in Mexico.  It is the country for honeymooners with champagne taste on a beer budget.


FLORIDA From the famous emerald beaches on the gulf coast to the amusements parks in the Orlando area to the vibrant nightlife in Miami to the charm of Keys,  Florida offers a variety of honeymoon hotspots just a short car or plane ride away!


FRANCE Walking hand in hand with your husband as the Eiffel Tower sparkles in the background can only be described as romantic.  Whether you choose to visit Paris or explore the quaint cobblestoned towns in the French countryside,  France is one of my favorite destinations for honeymooners.


ST. LUCIA When I think of St. Lucia,  I think of lush, tropical landscape with the Piton Mountain range and beautiful resorts.  Some resorts are perched on a cliff with sweeping ocean views while others overlook the gorgeous Pitons.  This is a favorite destination because you can do as much or as little as you like.  One of my clients’ favorites is going on a private yacht for a sunset cruise.


ANTIGUA The 365 beaches on Antigua make it a great match for couples wanting to lounge by the ocean.  Antigua oozes romance with unique resorts and private accommodations boasting their own plunge pools.  If you’re planning a destination wedding, you can even rent a private island for you and your guests!
