Top 3 Destinations in the Indian Ocean for a Luxury Honeymoon

Honeymoons are the most important holiday a couple will take in their lives. There is a wealth of exotic destinations to choose from. Below you will find the top 3 picks for the perfect luxury honeymoon.

The Maldives has long been associated with romantic breaks. This collection of over 1,000 paradise islands is set off the west coast of India in the Indian Ocean. Many islands remain uninhabited and this means that luxury resorts have been able to claim a whole island for themselves.

Guests can expect 5 star service at resorts such as Soneva Fushi, Huvafen Fushi, Ayada and many more.


Most resorts have packages and villas designed for a honeymoon. They usually have an in-house spa and guests can expect to be pampered from the moment they arrive to the moment they leave. The region has year round warm weather which makes this the ideal location for beach lovers. Most resorts are set on islands with white sand beaches and crystal clear blue waters. The rich corals and protected sea life make the region a big draw for scuba divers.

The Seychelles is another popular destination for a luxury honeymoon. The royal couple enjoyed their honeymoon at the exclusive North Island resort last year. Prince William and Kate Middleton were returning to the place they had previously visited. The resort is accessible by helicopter and features the finest service and accommodation.

Other popular resorts in the Seychelles for honeymooners include Fregate Island and Constance Ephelia. Both are set on stunning white sand beaches. Guests can expect seclusion and the finest cuisine and locally inspire architecture. Like many great honeymoon destinations, the Seychelles offers visitors excellent weather and a thriving underwater marine experience. Those just wanting to relax can simply sit back and enjoy the 5 star service poolside, or in the spa.

Mauritius is set 1,500 miles East of Africa. It is a single island famed for powdery white sand and turquoise waters. It is set just south of the equator which means that the weather is hot all year round. Honeymooners booking in the summer months are less likely to experience rain at this time in Mauritius, which makes it a great choice for summer weddings.

Mauritius resort

Mauritius combines colonial architecture with modern comforts. The capital of Port Louis is filled with a charming culture inspired by the French, Dutch and British. This combines with local hospitality to create a very welcoming experience. Some of the most popular resorts include Shanti Maurice with private infinity pools and The Residence Mauritius which is a larger complex famous for the excellent spa services and classic 1920s architecture.
