There are few holidays as important as your honeymoon. It is an opportunity to spend some quality time with your new husband and wife, away from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life. Chances are, you’ll only go on one honeymoon so you’ll want to make it special. What qualifies as a special honeymoon will depend on what you and your partner enjoy doing most when you’re away.

Whatever you choose, you’ll want something both special and luxurious – after all, it is your first trip together as husband and wife.
