3. Las Vegas
A honeymoon in Vegas is sure to tick all the right marks. There is something for everyone with neon lights, towering resorts and casinos, innumerable entertainment options, extravagant shopping, and world-class fine dining options. Given its reputation for debauchery (thanks to The Hangover), you might think that Vegas is not the ideal destination for a honeymoon. Still, we think you will be surprised to know how romantic this Sin City can be if you indulge in the right activities.
While the luxury hotel choices are endless with resorts offering every possible amenity under the sun – 24-hour casinos, incredible spas, butler service, best-in-class and Michelin starred restaurants, cocktail bars – in terms of luxury and extravaganza, Las Vagas will take you to an altogether different high.
Once you are done enjoying the luxury at the resort, you can always step out an enjoy a balloon ride over the city. Take off in the early morning, and you will see a version of Las Vegas that very few have seen. A hot air balloon ride is a great way to connect with your partner while at the same time enjoy the local side of the town, get away from its crazy party scene and enjoy the beautiful vistas below. Want to take it up a notch? A helicopter ride at night is sure to add to your romance and give your bonus points.
Other activities we recommend are to watch a Las Vegas show at any one of the hotels, take a sunset cruise on Lake Mead, or if you like adventure, go snowboarding or hiking at Mount Charleston.
How to reach – There are flights from all major cities of India to Las Vegas.
There is a reason why Mauritius is a favourite among honeymoon couple. Get your visa on arrival, rent a spacious car and self-drive your way through the island with your partner. Once you reach your resort, settle into a stagnant routine with beach walks, slow meals and swimming in the ocean – a Mauritius honeymoon is the perfect pick for couples who, after a hectic wedding, just want to unwind with some scenic beauty around them.
If you have more time and want to explore the island, hop on a catamaran at Trou d’Eau Douce Bay and head to Ile aux Cerfs – where you can have your dose of adventure with snorkelling and parasailing activities. You can also kayak down the river here and take a dip in the lagoons that are shallow and calm, even for non-swimmers.
Are you getting tired of just the sun and surf? Fret not as you can head to Casela Nature & Leisure Park, where young lions roam in large enclosures, exotic birds, zebras and long-tailed monkeys are guaranteed to keep you happily engaged and entertained. If you are looking for something offbeat, head to Blue Safari’s underwater scooter. Here your head is safely ensconced in an airtight bubble-like helmet, and you can steer your scooter at a depth of almost three metres.
