Of all the vacations you’ll ever take, your honeymoon is probably the most anticipated and ambitious. Whether you’re planning a luxurious beach stay or a nature-filled adventure, newlyweds look to experience that once-in-a-lifetime escape.

To help newlyweds plan the perfect trip Booking.com, the global leader in connecting travelers with the widest selection of incredible places to stay, compiled a list of unique and romantic honeymoon destinations that are sure to fit every newlyweds’ criteria.

All of these destinations are approved by Booking.com’s ‘young couple’ customers, 95% of whom recommended them to other travelers.

Udaipur, India

Udaipur is often said to be India’s most romantic city. Right at its heart lies the glassy blue surface of Lake Pichola, a man-made lake that gives the city an ethereal and peaceful presence. Perched on either side of the lake are two grand and beguiling structures, Lake Palace on one side and City Palace on the other. Take a romantic boat trip across the lake and admire the beamingly bright saris of the women washing clothes on the ghats. Then enjoy a rooftop dinner with a backdrop of glittering lights reflected on the water.

Barichara, Colombia

A captivatingly little town in northeastern Colombia, Barichara is cherished as a historical relic. Guests travel all over to experience the peaceful town and admire the well preserved Spanish colonial architecture. Hilly, cobbled streets are lined with trees and flowers, while the buildings feature terracotta roofs and whitewashed walls. Don’t miss the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception blending into the warm-colored landscape in all its splendor.

Palm Cove, Australia

A peaceful alternative to the well-known Port Douglas, Palm Cove is blissfully romantic. Pick a secluded spot on the long, white sandy beach and watch the sun set over the calm waters with the sounds of the rainforest behind you. For honeymooners willing to venture out of their paradise cocoon, visiting the nearby Great Barrier Reef is an experience you will never forget.

Akaroa, New Zealand

This little sheltered harbor town on the Banks Peninsula is a fine example of the kind of breathtaking rugged scenery New Zealand is known for. In contrast to its dramatic volcanic surroundings, the town itself has a sleepy and distinctly Gallic feel thanks to its history as a 19th century French settlement.

Spend the day swimming with dolphins and relax at night on the rustic wooden pier while you take in the sweeping views and serenity of honeymoon-worthy destination.

Collioure, France

Collioure, France is an inspiring and romantic provincial fishing village that has inspired the likes of artists like Henri Matisse. Rolling hills of vineyards slope down to this charming town sitting on a tiny bay. Complete with a waterfront castle and church, this town is perfect for lovers. Enjoy romantic strolls along the pebbly beach and through the local market to pick up some fresh baked goods and produce.

Delft, Holland

The historic, town of Delft is astonishingly picturesque. Known as the hometown of Dutch painter, Vermeer and for its own distinctive blue and white porcelain, it’s ideal for a tranquil and romantic city break. Stroll through its intimate and infinitely attractive, leafy canals and stroll over charming old stone bridges.

Monsaraz, Portugal

The hilltop village of Monsaraz has spectacular panoramic views out over the Alentejo region. Good food is a staple in this town, so expect many delicious, rustic meals with some of the area’s abundant fine wines. Pack a picnic and enjoy while gazing out over the olive groves, vineyards and rolling green hills.

Třeboň, Czech Republic

An enchanting town of Renaissance and Baroque houses in South Bohemia, it’s surprising that Třeboň isn’t on the international tourist radar. An area of great natural beauty, the landscape is perfect for romantic walks, dotted with lakes and wetlands that are home to a variety of flora and fauna. The town’s castle provides a fairytale setting, along with the cobbled main square lined with pastel-coloured houses boasting Baroque facades.
