Have you ever met people who spent so much time planning their wedding they forgot all about their honeymoon?
A wedding is only half the excitement.
A honeymoon lets couples get away from the stress of wedding planning, work, and family and start their new life with happy memories.
Here are six breathtaking locations you should consider as you’re planning your honeymoon holiday.
1. Fairmont Chateau Lake Louie – A Great Honeymoon Holiday
If you would choose snow over sun and prefer outdoor adventures over indoor activities, the Fairmont Chateau Lake Lousie is the honeymoon destination for you.
Nestled against the emerald Lake Lousie fed by the Victoria Glacier, this luxury hotel features multiple winter sports. A day spent here is full of skiing, guided mountain tours, ice skating, dog sledding, and romantic horse drawn sleigh rides.
If you need a way to warm up after snowy, wilderness exploring, you can visit the hotel’s spa and stop in for dinner at their exceptional, in-house restaurant.
Fairmont Chateau Lake Luisie is a beautiful honeymoon holiday location, but you can start your visit a little early and exchange your vows here as well. The hotel has thousands of square feet put aside for gatherings and weddings.

2. St. Regis Florence
If you’re looking for a more traditional honeymoon destination, you can’t go wrong with St. Regis Florence, Italy. Who hasn’t fallen in love in this romantic city?
St. Regis Florence was an 18th century, historic palace converted into a luxury hotel. The building overlooks the Arno River and is decorated with stunning frescoes and marble. The hotel bar even has a stained glass ceiling.
When you’re not in the hotel, St. Regis Florence is only a short distance away from the Duomo cathedral, and the local art and shops make the city a great place to explore.
3. Howie’s HomeStay Villas
Spending your honeymoon holiday in a nice hotel is great, but spending it in your own, private hotel resort is better.

Complete with a master bedroom, outdoor and indoor dining rooms, a beautiful pool, and breathtaking gardens, this hotel only books one group at a time. So you can relax in complete privacy with your partner.
