Tribes Travel share their top 5 honeymoon destinations from secluded beaches to wildlife adventures


Tribes Travel honeymoons

Here on The Natural Wedding Company blog I’ve recently been introducing some guest bloggers in the form of my TNWC Real Brides – it’s been lovely for me to share the blog with others, and I hope you’ve been enjoying their wedding plans so far.  Today I’m going to hand the blog over to one of my fab TNWC businesses to tell you all about something they specialise in – stunning, ethical honeymoons.

Amanda set up Tribes Travel with her husband 15 years ago after spending many years as a travel guide.  Their ethos for Tribes Travel is all about giving you the very best holiday experience possible, whilst trying to ensure that travel is sustainable.  You must check out their website for some of the wonderful holidays and trips they offer, but today Amanda is going to give you her recommendations for their top five honeymoon destinations.

Over to Amanda…

Amanda from Tribes Travel

Someone in our office is getting married and we were discussing where she should go on her honeymoon.  Since selling holidays and honeymoons is what we do, we of course all had definite personal views as to what would make the perfect honeymoon.

A beach came high on the list of many of us, luxury was a must, and romantic accommodation was undeniably important.  We decided to forgo what some of our more active clients have chosen in the past for a honeymoon – Kilimanjaro!

Our top 5 honeymoon destinations eventually came down to the following list of exciting holidays and wonderful places to stay.

1. Luxury Kenya Bush and Beach

Sustainable luxury Kenya honeymoon

We are all wildlife and nature lovers, and this luxury combination of an exciting safari in the Masai Mara followed by an indulgent stay at an exclusive beach house on the southern coast of Kenya certainly worked for us.  Not only is the accommodation on this honeymoon absolutely superb, personal and romantic, but you’ll end up with memories to treasure of the special places and experiences you’ll enjoy on this holiday.

2. Paradise Cove in Mauritius

Paradise Cove honeymoon in Mauritius

For out-and-out relaxation on a beautiful beach, Mauritius has to come very high on our list.  There are lots of choices on the island, but Paradise Cove got our vote because of its quiet location on a secluded private beach and its gorgeous views over the Indian Ocean.  There are plenty of activities to engage in if that’s what takes your fancy, but suffice to say that it might take a lot of will power to tear yourself of this beach, especially after the good food, a bit of a spa treatment, a glass of champagne ….!

3. Rio & the Costa Verde

Costa Verde sustainable honeymoon

Combine one of the most exciting cities on earth with time to chill on some of Brazil’s beautiful coastline.  You would start with 3 days in the heart of historical Rio, in a colonial mansion that was part of a coffee plantation and is now the city’s only Relais & Chateaux property.  Then we whisk you south to an area of beautiful sandy beaches with bays and coves with temptingly crystal clear water.  Pousada Picinguaba is a small ‘rustic chic’ hotel which even has its own schooner which can take you to desert islands!

4. Lake Malawi Holiday

Romantic Lake Malawi honeymoon

Not all beaches are on the coast.  The focus of the land-locked country of Malawi is the massive Lake Malawi.  You don’t really get tides the same as you do with coastal beaches of course, but other than that, it’s so huge, that it’s hard to get your head around the fact that it’s not the sea!  Two of our absolute favourite beach lodges happen to be on this lake – Kaya Mawa and Nkwichi Lodge.  This holiday combines both, for a perfect romantic honeymoon escape.

5. The Galapagos Islands

Galapagos Island adventure honeymoon

Being on the high seas (preferably not too high) off the coast of South America sounds like a romantic adventure before you even start going anywhere or seeing anything!  When what you’re going to see is the stunning wildlife and wilderness of the unique Galapagos Islands, then this becomes a once-in-a-lifetime type of trip which would suit the most choosy of honeymooners.

This list offers some of the most wonderful experiences the world has to offer.  However as we all know, a honeymoon must be uniquely perfect for just two people.  You no doubt have your own top 5 list.  So what would that be?  I’d love to hear. 

Don’t you find that just looking and talking about beautiful and exotic locations around the world makes you want to start planning a holiday?  What I love about Tribes Travel is they help you plan your trip and personalise it to your needs, and they have all that know-how about a place that is so hard to find out on your own.

If you’re on the hunt for a luxury but sustainable honeymoon, why not check out this feature I previously did on Tribes Travel and their stunning Robinson Crusoe style eco honeymoons.
