4 Top Hotels For A Honeymoon
From a Renaissance architectural hotel surrounded by lush greenery to one enveloped in rich ecological wetland far from the city, here are some seriously romantic and idyllic honeymoon hotels.
A honeymoon is a once-in-a-lifetime experience (for many of us) and one of the most awaited and indulgent holidays we are likely to ever take. (If starting a married life together isn’t the perfect excuse to splash out on that dreamy bucket list trip we’ve always wanted to take, we really don’t know what is.) While couples may end up taking other amazing trips in the future, the first adventure is really special and sets the tone for their travels down the line. Plus, of course, a post-wedding getaway is the perfect way for newlyweds to release all that accumulated stress from planning the nuptials.
We’ve rounded up a definitive list of hotels that will help make your honeymoon the trip of a lifetime. The incredible hotels, whether near or far, take into consideration couples with different needs.
Mandarin Oriental Lago Di Como
Sparkling water, green mountains and fabulously landscaped gardens combine to make Lake Como a dream destination for lovestruck duos. In historic Como, newlyweds can marvel at the town’s Gothic-style cathedral from a cosy café on the charming Piazza Duomo. Other leisurely activities include taking a hand-held stroll in Lenno and Tremezzo, through the botanical displays at Villa del Balbianello and Villa Carlotta.
Romance awaits at every turn in rustic Blevio, where Mandarin Oriental, Lago di Como overlooks the lake from its setting in an 18th-century villa. The hotel also boasts a 1,300 sqm spa, which is the largest on the lake and ideal for quiet time together. Alternatively, couples can take to the water with a private, full-day tour aboard a Riva boat.
