Honeymoon of a lifetime? It certainly should be It’s a once in a lifetime journey but honeymoons are costly things, especially if you like a bit of luxury! With so many companies offering luxury honeymoon holidays and honeymoon packages, it can be a bit bewildering. Aside from budget, a good starting point is making a selection from the numerous honeymoon destinations available and that obviously depends on what you want to do; whether it’s lying on a deserted beach in the Maldives or trekking in the Himalayas, there is so much to choose from. You’ve got beach honeymoons, adventure honeymoons, cultural honeymoons, safari honeymoons… Where do you start? If it’s a luxury honeymoon you’re after and the idea of going to a far-flung destination where you can relax on the beach sipping on a cocktail is for you, then The Pimalai resort in Thailand might be right up your street. It’s a hidden gem surrounded by the lush tropical forest of Koh Lanta, leading to a beautiful white sand beach, offering a range of luxurious rooms and pool villas, perfect for luxury honeymoons. Not only has it got a stunning spa and a cooking school but for those who want to be more active there is an activity centre offering mountain bikes, trekking, tennis and activities such as elephant trekking.
