Honeymoons & Destination Weddings

Courtesy of Kuperard

As soon as I saw the cover of Indian Ocean Chic, I knew that I had found a new dream honeymoon destination. Graced with the marine riches of the Maldives and the golden coast of Sri Lanka, this enchanting region is becoming the destination of choice for newlyweds in search of comfort and adventure. "It's the epitome of tropical romance," author Joe Yogerst told me. "It's a really exotic region—kind of a combination of the Caribbean and the South Pacific with a little bit of Africa and Asia thrown in." Filled with tantalizing photos of over-the-water bungalows and impossibly blue waters, the glossy guide will have you searching for flights and making hotel reservations. Even better, Joe gives an up-to-the-minute account of the islands' hottest hotels and resorts, including his favorite, the sun-drenched Oberoi in Mauritius. Looking for even more travel inspiration? The Chic Destination series includes guides to Mexico, Bali and more than ten other alluring locales. Check them all out here. —Kathryn Papanek
