If there's ever an appropriate time to plan a bucket-list-worthy, once-in-a-lifetime trip, it's certainly your honeymoon! But selecting a far-flung destination that checks off all of your "must-have" boxes can be hard to come by. If your list contains gorgeous beaches, serene over-water bungalows, jungle retreats, and thrilling aquatic adventures, then look no further than Asia and Australia for your post-wedding getaway.
The problem is, Asia and Australia cover a whole lot of ground — two continents, an island nation, and a major swath of the Indian Ocean, to be exact. How can you possibly decide between endless Balinese retreats, Australian getaways, and everything else in between? Luckily for you, our friends at Virtuoso scoured the vast area and reported back their top 10 picks for newlyweds looking to head far east for their honeymoon.
The only trouble you'll have is picking just one of these stellar hideaways. Will you spend your days relaxing in a private teak-and-coconut-wood villa in Bali or riding elephants through the jungles of Thailand? Would you rather scuba dive in the Great Barrier Reef or longue on the deck of your over-water bungalow in the Maldives? Or perhaps you'd prefer the thoughtful details at a New Zealand retreat, like monogrammed linens and couples horseback riding?
One thing's for sure: These 10 resorts all offer unique, luxurious, and exciting options for newlywed couples to enjoy. So when are you leaving?
