Honeymoon Ideas – Maximising your Minimoon

Honeymoon Ideas – Maximising your ‘Minimoon’

It’s been a while since I had a honeymoon feature on the blog, so I thought it was about time to rectify that and give you a bit of honeymoon inspiration with the help of Natasha from Carrier.  It’s always nice to think of honeymoons as 2-3 week luxury holidays but taking that much time away from your daily routine isn’t always possibly, our lives are so busy these days that sometime you can only afford a few days away at a time. However that doesn’t mean you can’t have a luxury holiday for a shorter amount of time. So today we are looking at Minimoon ideas.

I’ll pass you over to Natasha from Carrier……….

Just because you don’t have the time to take a long holiday after your wedding doesn’t mean that you have to compromise…
There’s plenty of inspiring and chic destinations just a short plane ride away. And if you choose your accommodation well and you can still indulge in all the five-star luxuries that make a honeymoon truly special – even if you’re only got a few days at your disposal. Carrier, one of Britain’s leading luxury travel agents, shows you how to get the most out of your short haul honeymoon.


Choose guaranteed sunshine in Greece


Azure blue waters, rich history, and particularly welcoming people – it’s no wonder so many honeymooners have fallen in love with the Greek Islands.
From the picture postcard traditional white washed architecture of Santorini to the ‘modern meets ancient’ eclecticism of Crete, there’s a wealth of choice available to those looking to make the most of the Mediterranean climate.
Hotels like the Grace Santorini with its breath-taking vistas and the Sani Asterias Suites on the captivating Kassandra peninsula are both sophisticated and secluded.


Make treasured memories in Italy


Italy offers the ideal balance of decadent elegance and vibrant culture to those looking to explore a little on their honeymoon.
Away from the hustle and bustle of the well-trodden tourist track, you’ll find hidden gems that allow you to experience gastronomical delights and the famous Italian hospitality in more serene surroundings.
Stay at the Belmond Hotel Caruso, perched high on the Amalfi cliff tops, and you’ll be in good company; its roll call of famous former guests including Jackie Kennedy and Tennessee Williams. Or try the CastaDiva Resort & SPA on the shores of Lake Como – if all the stillness gets too much for you, fashionable Milan is only a drive away…


Discover another side to Spain


Spanish beach breaks have become something of a cliché over the last few years. But a holiday here doesn’t always have to conform to the stereotypes if you stay away from the more traditionally popular destinations.
Set apart from the tourist towns of Tenerife is Las Villas at Gran Hotel Bahía del Duque Resort, an exclusive development set in lush sub-tropical gardens. With butler service, huge basalt stone baths in each bathroom and an incredible spa, what better place to relax into married life than here?


Mingle with the jet set in France


Whether you prefer sweeping countryside landscapes or the opulent architecture of one of the world’s most beautiful cities, France offers it all.
Celebrate your marriage in the city of love by booking into the recently renovated Le Royal Monceau Raffles Paris, a palace of fine art and design that’s only a short walk from the Champs-Elysees.
Looking for something a little further afield? The Terre Blanche Hotel Spa Golf Resort in Tourrettes, Provence provides spectacular views over picturesque villages to the hills beyond, while Château Saint-Martin & Spa in Vence is set amidst the atmospheric ruins of a twelfth century Knights Templar fortress.
