Unique Honeymoon Accommodation – Making the Search Easier!

We all Google. It’s almost becoming second-nature to do so when posed with any query or quandary. I probably Google in my sleep! And finding the perfect Honeymoon location is no less an exhaustive search. So what if there was some way to narrow the search, particularly when looking for that unique luxury escape? The clever folk at Welcome Beyond have done just that, with a tantalising selection of the inspirational locations for the honeymoon to remember.

They hand-pick places that are truly original, with many notable for their distinctive architecture and design. Some border on quirky, several are quite posh, and a few are downright rustic. But what all of their properties have in common is that they’re exclusive – in the best sense of the word. Each is singular, memorable and definitely worth writing home about.

This is why we love it! We know that you Dotties love to venture beyond the norm, and find new ideas and sights – not to mention, incredible beauty. I for one have been closer and closer to convincing myself that a second honeymoon (only a year after the first one) is definitely in order! Here are my two picks.

Villa Maya in Tangalle, Sri Lanka - A serene and tranquil retreat, with impeccable interior design. Attractions nearby include a turtle sanctuary, dolphin and whale watching, and Udawalawe, an elephant reserve.

Elena and Davide

Italy has to be one of my favourite places for a destination wedding and today’s wedding from Igloo Photo does nothing to squash my Italian fantasies! Everything about today’s wedding is so representative of what I love about Italy and I hope you’ll enjoy the story just as much as I do!

The couple married at Madonna del Latte Gionzana. Carla and Fabio from Igloo Photo say, “Despite having the wonderful Lago Maggiore near, groom and bride have opted for the rice fields, they married in a splendid little church with wonderful medieval frescoes. The location for the wedding reception was held in a real greenhouse, where the owners grow and sell flowers for generations. ”
