Here are a few suggestions for honeymoon itineraries for couples planning getaways from August through October! Ready to take notes, my dears?
1. Northern California is their top pick if you want to stay domestic for your post-nuptial getaway. With plenty of sunshine, an endless list of things to do and some of the best restaurants around, this locale can’t be beat. And their top recommendation for a two-stop California honeymoon? The stunning Carneros Inn in Napa Valley and Big Sur’s Ventana Inn which is nestled amid the redwood forest. Sign me up!
2. If a beach honeymoon is your cup of tea, you’ll want to head somewhere dry this time of year — like picturesque Bali! Temperate through September and until October, this locale is as idyllic as they come. Mr & Mrs Smith suggests a trip that begins on the island’s southwest shores at the Alila Villas Soori where couples can laze or explore the gorgeous surrounds!
After some R&R, you’ll ferry over to the incredible island of Lombok (Bali’s more low-key sibiling) where you’ll stay at the Lombok Lodge. At this incredible locale, days are spent in the infinity pool, at the spa or on day trips to nearby villages and temples.
3. And if money is no object Mr & Mrs Smith recommends this ultra luxe Italian itinerary! Between the ancient ruins, Renaissance art and lots of pasta, this honeymoon spot has it all. Starting off in Rome at the opulent Residenza Napoleone III, which is ideally located to all of the ancient city’s wonders, couples can dine, explore and fall in love with Italy.
From there, you’ll head off to the Amalfi Coast where you’ll hang your hat at the picturesque Monastero Santa Rosa. The 17th century monastery has ocean-views and incredible gardens that will take your breath away.
To top it all off, you’ll ferry to Capri and stay at the art-deco inspired JK Place Capri. You and your honey can rent Vespas to explore the island or lounge in the glam oceanfront pool. Now that’s a recipe for amore.
No matter the time of year, budget, destination or travel style, Mr & Mrs Smith can help design your ideal honeymoon! Ready to get started on your dream honeymoon plans?
