Top seven luxury honeymoons 2015

Posted on by Beyond Bespoke

From a private island villa in the Seychelles to a newly-wed’s dream on the water’s edge of Lake Como, Dan Cooper rounds up the best luxury honeymoons to book in 2015

North Island, Seychelles
You don’t get more secluded than a private island villa, and it just so happens that the Seychelles has some of the most lavish in the world. Having played the setting for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s honeymoon, the North Island is an ultra-exclusive tropical paradise, only reachable via helicopter. Don’t expect to see many other residents throughout the duration of your trip. Oxford Private Travel

Santa Cruz, Chile
Overlooking the verdant Clos Apalta vineyard and its glorious surroundings, the Casa Lapostolle residence offers what can only be described as a rarefied experience. With more wine tasting than you can shake a grapevine at, and local activities, such as horse riding and mountain biking, add the panache your honeymoon needs. Abercrombie & Kent

Lake Como, Italy
The water’s edge of Lake Como teems with luxury villas and resorts, some of which have been in business for centuries. But of all of these, one in particular shines out: the exceptional CastaDiva resort, which boasts only the best things a newly-wed couple could wish for: an award-winning spa, local, seasonal meals, a wealth of history, culture and art to discover and, of course, plenty of privacy.

County Laois, Ireland
To step foot into the Ballyfin Demesne is to step back in time. Located in the picturesque village of Ballyfin, the exquisite hotel of the same name feels as if it has been handpicked out of a fairy tale and placed just underneath the Slieve Bloom Mountains. With only 20 rooms available, this ultra-traditional and ultra-private hideaway subverts the predictable sun-and-sea stories you’ll be telling on your return. Ballyfin

Phuket, Thailand
The island of Phuket harbours, what can only be described as, unconventional luxury. Despite its quiet and serene exterior, there is a thriving party atmosphere and nightlife for the more lively of couples. That being said, the Villa Som provides all the comfort and tranquillity you could hope for, with 25-hour estate security, personal in-house kitchen staff and a state-of-the-art home entertainment system.

Los Cabos, Mexico
There’s something quite alluring about grabbing your other half by the wrist and “hopping the border” to Mexico. Maybe you’re hopping a few borders, if you’re flying from the UK, but it definitely hasn’t stopped discerning honeymooners flocking for their post-nuptials, including Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow. With award-winning spa facilities and breathtaking contemporary design features, the Rosewood resort in the state of Baja California is as romantic as it is astounding. Abercrombie & Kent

For the most vitalising of experiences, discover Bali by land, sea and air – or beach resort, cruise and jet – with your significant other, taking residence in four of the most luxurious hotels and resorts available in the world.
