A trio of decadent destinations

for a perfect honeymoon

Zambia

Follow in the footsteps of legendary explorer David Livingstone

and explore the tropical wilds of Zambia.

Be awed by the ‘Smoke that Thunders’ at the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park where

the

Victoria Falls

cascade 

over 100 metres crashing into the mighty Zambezi River.

The park is a UNESCO World Heritage site where you can watch giraffes, hippos and elephants in a state of true riverbank relaxation. 

If you’re intent on spotting big cats then arrange a safari in the Luangwa Valley region.

Lazy evenings spent enjoying traditional bush fare while watching African sunsets melting into glittering night skies are sure to leave couples starry-eyed.

Hotel Pick:

Live like royalty at The Livingstone Hotel.

Swedish Lapland

Escape into an ethereal world and embrace arctic temperatures in

Jukkasjarvi,

Swedish Lapland. 

As well as boasting

dramatic snowscapes

and the chance to glimpse the elusive Northern Lights flickering across the night sky, Jukkasjarvi is home to the world’s original ice hotel constructed entirely from frozen blocks of the nearby Torne River.

Sleeping in one of the art suite rooms designed by gifted artists is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to

snuggle up tightly

on a bed made of ice.

Thrill seekers can get their hearts racing on a snowshoe trek or mush mush mush  a team of huskies.

Then chill out with  in the stylish

Absolut

IceBar…

Romantic and outdoorsy types will be equally enchanted.

Discover the World even offers transfers by husky sled from the airport to the hotel

Bali

It’s no wonder Bali has long been a favourite of blissed-out newlyweds:

Unreserved relaxation

is in as plentiful a supply as the musky incense which fills the air.

The birthplace of scores of holistic treatments, pencil in unhurried afternoons for indulgent and sensual frangipani

aromatherapy massages, sandalwood body scrubs and flower relaxation baths.

Deserted beaches in exclusive Seminyak are another of Bali’s delights.

Wander hand in hand through pure white sands while warm turquoise water tickles at your feet.

Shopaholics must visit Ubud for traditional handicrafts:

exquisite lace and carved masks.

Hours can be lost wandering through

patchwork green paddy fields

and making friends with the cheeky long tailed macaques.
