COVID-19 Disclaimer: We are currently in the midst of an unprecedented time,
not only in the United States, but all over the world! The coronavirus pandemic has had celebratory events and travel plans such as weddings and honeymoons being rapidly postponed and canceled across the globe.
If you are a bride whose wedding or honeymoon has been affected by the coronavirus pandemic, we truly feel for you! We know you can’t wait to run down the aisle and start forever with your fiance. Our advice to you: try to see the glass half full by taking some extra time to plan and save for your dream honeymoon!
Your honeymoon is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of trip. Sure, you and your soon-to-be-spouse may have a bucket list full of trips for your future together, (if you don’t, let’s talk about how Social Butterfly Express can help you put together a comprehensive travel goal list to hit those big destinations on your big anniversaries!) but your honeymoon symbolizes the start of your life together, a promise of love and romance, and allows you to kick-off your newly wedded bliss intimately and in seclusion.
We put together some of our favorite dream honeymoon destinations! From personal experiences to client favorites everywhere from Antigua to Bora Bora, we’ve got the ultimate list of dream honeymoon destinations covered! Check it out below!
Cocobay Resort, Antigua
Cocobay Resort in Antigua is an adults-only, all-inclusive resort located on the sunset side of Antigua! This destination is perfect for couples and is even widely known as Antigua’s most relaxing and romantic resort!
Celebrate your love in a private, beachside cottage winding down to soft, white sands, and miles of turquoise Caribbean Sea! The resort features a variety of on-site restaurants and private dining options, a health + wellness club, a spa, and more. If you’re looking for a mix of luxury, privacy, and romance, look no further than the Cocobay Resort in Antigua!
Sandals is known for their all-inclusive, luxury-focused resorts, and their Sandals Barbados location is no exception! Sandals has not one, but two all-inclusive resorts on the island, each with a wide array of amenities and activities, and both with the world-class service you’ve come to expect from Sandals Resorts.
Stand-out amenities include Sandals first-ever rooftop pool and a craft beer
garden! Honeymooners also get the red-carpet treatment upon arrival with a complimentary bottle of champagne, romantic rose-petal turndown service, and breakfast in bed one morning of your choice.
Bougainvillea Resort Barbados
The Bougainvillea Resort in Barbados caters to both families and couples alike! If you have children that will be joining you on your trip (no judgement, here!), The Bougainvillea also features a wide variety of on-site family-friendly activities, including an exclusive Kids Club. On-site babysitting services are also available so you can still fit in some adults-only alone time (wink, wink).
The resort offers plenty to do by way of on-site activities including multiple pools, shuffleboard, and beach volleyball. Additional off-site activities are also available such as deep sea fishing, private island exploration, party cruises, horseback riding, and much more!
Intercontinental Tahiti Resort + Spa
The Intercontinental Tahiti Resort + Spa is the largest luxury resort on the island of Tahiti, and is located just a few minutes from the local airport making it also a convenient destination.

Maitai Polynesia, Bora Bora
The Maitai Polynesia offers ocean or garden view rooms, as well as over and underwater bungalows for your stay. Their guest services team strives to make your stay as pleasant as possible, providing internet access, laundry service, currency exchange, bicycle rental, babysitting, complimentary kayaks and snorkeling equipment, and much more all on site.
