Honeymoon in a Private Villa

By Natalie Aranda 

With hundreds of places to go for your honeymoon, it can be quite difficult to find one that will suit your needs. After all, this is the one time in your life that you have been waiting for forever. For that reason, your honeymoon needs to be enchanting and luxurious.

The first thing you need to do is pick a location. Most couples tend to gravitate towards warmer climates, perhaps Bermuda or Puerto Rico. These places are great for relaxation and a romantic getaway. However, what you do need to know is that a hotel isn’t the only place you can stay while traveling. Recently, the newest hot spot are private villas; a luxurious estate complete with your own cook and lush garden. This is a wonderful way to spend your honeymoon, especially since privacy is at your fingertips.

If you are looking for a great honeymoon on a tropical island, Bali may be the answer. This unique place not only has hundreds of Bali villa rentals, but they also have private villas for your enjoyment. Bali’s villa rentals include actual homes that you can rent for weeks at a time, or villas that are actually part of a hotel. No matter what you choose, villas are perfect for any honeymoon.

The most important thing to factor in is the expense. If you are on a budget, a private villa with standard amenities may be a better choice. This affordable solution allows you to still enjoy the enchanting view, but you will not have all of the extra luxuries. However, many couples do not feel this is necessary, as they would rather spend the money doing something else.

If you still cannot afford a Bali private villa, perhaps a villa that is part of a hotel would be great fit. Although it is associated with a hotel, it is much better than a typical hotel room. Usually you are right on the beach or have an amazing view. You also have much better service and are treated to amazing food and drinks. If you are still not satisfied with any of these options and feel the need to celebrate the special occasion, there are private villas with around the clock service. These private villas are hidden from the rest of the business and are usually set in beachfronts or lush gardens. It is a wonderful experience to have maids, cooks, and an entire pool to yourselves. Although this is an expensive option, it is completely worth every penny.

No matter where you choose to go, private villas are the best places to stay. If you have the money, then anyone will tell you to splurge and experience the luxury. With such a special occasion, you should be treated like royalty. Enjoying the private villa and vacation together as husband and wife will not only make memories for years to come, but it also will persuade you to go back and experience it again.

Natalie Aranda writes on family, love and relationship. Wedding couples plan honeymoons months ahead of the weddings.

How to Organize a Perfect Honeymoon

By Hannah Henry 

After months of planning the wedding and finally that the special day is over, you and your partner are able to relax. But with all the energy and concentration spent on the wedding and the reception, you are all exhausted out and you might not have the time to plan for your honeymoon. Unless you plan to have your honeymoon a month or two after the wedding, here are steps you can do to organize that perfect honeymoon right after exchanging your vows.

1. You and your partner should decide what sort of honeymoon you would like to have. Is it going to a beach and get a sun kissed tan? Or is it cuddling up in a very romantic cottage up in the mountains while enjoying skiing? Whatever you plan to do, the two of you should agree on one thing to do. The key here is to relax with your loved one anyway.

2. Chose a place where the two of you have never gone before.

3. Make your plans a little easier by calling a travel agent for any honeymoon packages that are available.

4. Give allowance on the time between your booking and your travelling to make sure your accommodations are available.

5. When in your honeymoon, try to give a lot of time to relax. Don't overbook your day with a lot of activities (sightseeing or tours for example).

6. Make sure you give ample of time for your departing flight. If you can, schedule the time you fly 2 days after the wedding, but if you have to leave the day after your wedding, make sure your flights departs late morning or the afternoon instead of an early morning flight.

7. When shopping for the hotels, ask a lot of questions, make sure you have a room with a double bed, a big bathtub, and a romantic view as much as possible.

Planning a Honeymoon

If you are planning your marriage and honeymoon and wonder what choices you have for a memorable honeymoon, here are just a few ideas for you. They are not going to include the usual spots like Tahiti or Mexico or Hawaii since they are already well known and perhaps overdone even. The following ideas are for honeymoons on every kind of budget - from $2,000 to $20,000.

For the budget conscious (under $2,000) who do not want to just stay home, consider camping or simply driving to National Parks and staying in motels for a week. Very nice trips can be taken to nearby Parks where motels might only cost $80 per night on the road and double that for motels in or near National Parks. Gas may cost $300 for a reasonable length honeymoon of 7-10 days, and 10 nights at an average of $100 plus food and misc. expenses should bring you in for under $2,000.

If you live fairly near a big city and want to experience the vibrancy of a major location like New York or San Francisco, simply reserve a room at pleasant hotels charging $200 per night and stay for a week. Keep in mind that parking at downtown hotels can cost $40 per night as well and add for food. You may need to scale back your budget in that case but many desirable hotels in nice areas can rent for only $150 per night.

With a  larger budget of say $4,000, think about some of the newer hot spots where getting there is most of the cost. Places like Costa Rica or the Dominican Republic. Flights from anywhere in the US should run no more than $800-$1200 for both of you (unless you live in Alaska or Maine) and many hotels can cost as little as $60 per night. You could conceivably stay for 2 weeks or more and have money for excursions like tours, snorkeling and maybe even gambling.
You can consider Alaska also, as many cruises originate out of Vancouver B.C. and Seattle in addition to Anchorage and other ports within Alaska's borders. Flights to Seattle or B.C. and cruise reservations should not cost more than $2,000 to $2,500 and that also leaves plenty of spending money for tours, gratuities, alcohol and gambling.

With budgets approaching $10,000, consider visiting several countries in Europe. Once there, you can explore exciting options like barge tours or cruises on all the major rivers, perhaps getting married in a castle or renting a room in a castle at the least or taking a cruise from points in Greece like Santorini or Athens.

For those with even more income to dispose of, consider renting a yacht in Europe or in the Caribbean. Some yachts you can rent alone, others take 8-12 passengers. You can also easily honeymoon in Japan with an expanded budget and perhaps stay in a resort near Mt. Fuji. Other ideas include renting private planes, taking month long cruises or even going over the 'pond' from Europe to New York on one of the new liners plying the ocean. The important thing is to make sure you and your spouse to be agree on all points concerned - from the budget to type of honeymoon (city, beach, island, foreign soil, etc.) to day excursions that interest both of you.
