I’m four days out from my honeymoon and our first option was to head to Arrowtown in the South Island to a cute little quiet spot to recover from the wedding. Budgets however meant that we had to tone things back a bit and save the South Island for next year. Instead we’re going to escape to our batch at Waiheke and spend all the money we saved for flights on wineries instead. I think it’s a wise investment.
However if you were planning on travelling further afield than our beautiful country then Booking.com has compiled a list of unique and romantic honeymoon destinations that are sure to fit every newlyweds’ criteria. All of these destinations are approved by Booking.com’s ‘young couple’ customers, 95% of whom recommended them to other travelers.

Notably these locations are almost exclusively off the beaten track. For a romantic week away together you really want to get away from the crowds and party beaches and just find a warm place to cuddle.
Only one of the recommended locations, Palm Cove in Australia, actually features an amazing beach. The others revolve around old European castles and cute cobbled streets. One of the recommended locations doesn’t stray from our shores though. Akaroa sits just to the east of Christchurch.
