Imagine being able to take a break from your daily routine and escape to a place somewhere far away from the rest of the world. Or perhaps it’s time to plan that long overdue romantic getaway with your partner without any distractions. Does it sounds too good to be true? Let me assure you that such a place does exist!

Considered one of the most exclusive places on earth, Cape Panwa Hotel has hosted celebrities such as Leonardo Di Caprio to earn its reputation of serving ultimate luxury and privacy. Warning: be prepared for some VIP treatment.

The resort itself is located on the southeastern side of Phuket in Thailand, and has recently launched its new Absolute Suite. It features two bedroom en-suites, separate living and dining rooms with kitchen, a private spa facility and a full-sized infinity pool.

Explore Phuket and taste the local Thai cuisine at nearby restaurants with the complimentary use of a Mercedes Benz car or enjoy the seaside with exclusive access to the hotel’s yacht.

If that’s not enough, let yourself be pampered by your personal butler that is on 24-hour call or be served breakfast every morning by your personal chef.

What a delight to have today’s guest with us – I’m a huge fan of her travel ethos. The lovely Caroline, who has two blogs, Caroline in the City, her personal travel blog, and This Is My South, a travel guide to the southern United States, is an advocate for ‘slow travel’, spending two weeks (or a year) in one place, getting to know it, instead of crossing items off a list. This is exactly how I like to travel – I have a morbid fear of tours where you stay in one place for one night then move on. There’s so much you’ll miss!

The lovely Caroline has given some fantastic tips for a honeymoon that takes it all in! Read on!

What is your favourite region?

As a resident of the southern USA, there’s a lot undiscovered here, particularly by travelers from Europe and Australia. Charleston is my all-time favorite city, followed closely by New Orleans.

Top Resort Recommendation?

Turtle Bay Resort in Hawaii is stunning. My sisters, mom and I spent a few days there enjoying poolside drinks and the convenient location to Oahu’s North Shore food trucks.

Suggestions for great honeymoon activities.

Get active and do the things you wouldn’t do at home. Paragliding, scuba diving and zip lining all come to mind.

The ideal location for a proposal?

Somewhere with beautiful scenery but quiet enough for a private moment. The Domain in Sydney is one I’d love to experience.

Best kept secret honeymoon location?

Portugal has been on my radar since before I visited a few months ago. The value with the Aussie dollar is fairly strong and you’ll find that what you would spend back home for a meal is a third of what it is here. Between the food, wine and hospitality, you may never leave. Be sure to check out the Douro region in the north!

Hin & Clay

I love a beautiful destination wedding and the wedding of Hin and Clay, captured by Hin’s sister Kara of Sunny & Sweet Photography was truly an intimate, family affair with all of the beautiful, traditional Fijian trimmings.

Hin kicks off their story. “We met at work and I know it sounds cliche but I knew immediately that he was the one and after a couple of dates we were both hooked”.

Photos are by Sunny & Sweet Photography- there must be something overwhelmingly moving about capturing your own sister’s wedding and I love that every shot by Kara is heavy with meaning and symbolism of the day.

“We stayed one night in Nadi and then caught an hour or so flight to Savusavu. The resort was 5km from the town on a secluded bend with bure’s that overlooked the ocean. On our wedding day it poured, not just a little rain, a complete downpour with strong winds. Then a half hour before our wedding the rain subsided, there were clouds but the sky was white and all misty, it was beautiful.”

“We had a small and intimate wedding with only a handful of friends and family. Our daughter was our flower girl and the resort organised a nanny to keep her entertained after the ceremony. My sister was our photographer and she has an amazing eye, she is also a great story teller, I really couldn’t be any happier with the photos. I just love them.”

The wedding was held at Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort , where the on site wedding coordinator did most of the planning. Hin recalls, “Jean-Michel Cousteau resort is a five star resort on the island of Vanua Levu, Fiji and it overlooks Savusavu bay. It has the most relaxing environment and in 2012 they won Australasia’s Leading Green Hotel. The resort’s wedding planner handled most of the little details.”

Hin remarks, “Our wedding was a mix of several cultures uniting under one umbrella. We walked down the aisle to the beating of drums and a traditional Fijian horn.”
