Thailand is always one of my favorite places to visit and I cannot recommend it enough to honeymooners who want a trip full of adventure and relaxation in an incredibly chic location! Soneva Kiri is the ultimate getaway spot when in Thailand. The resort it full of amazing features and breathtaking views in a location that feels “remote” but still is accessible.
Each room is a personal villa that are both large and luxurious. They feel like little retreats built right into the landscape and all have stunning views of sunsets and the secluded bay.
They have unique excursions that include the Mai Si honey farm, rain forest treks, and breathtaking waterfalls to see. If you love to snorkel or dive, Thailand has some amazing coral rich reefs around Koh Rand and Koh Chang Marine Park for you to explore!
One of their most popular and famous amenities is the dining pods. Personal bamboo baskets are risen 12 meters up to the treetops with waiters arriving by trapeze and serving gourmet dishes…can you believe that?! Definitely something I always encourage my clients to experience!
A couple of my other favorites would definitely be the Jungle Escape at the Spa (of course), wine tasting, the sunrise breakfast cruise, the den (a bamboo playhouse for kids), and of course…the Willy Wonka fantasy! A chilled chocolate room packed with chocolate truffles, lollipops, and cacao cocktails!? You definitely don’t need to convince me of that!
If you’re interested in taking a trip to Thailand, let me know! I’d love to help you experience all that this beautiful country has to offer. Plus, Ever After Honeymoons clients receive complimentary champagne and Thai tapas as well as hand-crafted Thai arrival and departure gifts!
I know, Oman certainly isn’t at the top of anyone’s dream honeymoon list…but it should be! The Six Senses Zighy Bay
will totally change your mind with it’s cool combo of culture and beaches! The resort is just a 2 hour drive from Dubai too so if you can’t decide between city and beach for your honeymoon, do both!
Their villas are gorgeous!! Such cool design and architecture!
One of the coolest parts of the resort is your arrival. You have three options: either ride in a 4×4 down the mountain, take a 15 minute scenic speedboat ride, (my personal favorite) paraglide in! How amazing is that?!
Zighy Bay has a ton of amazing dining options as well but I can’t get over the Shua Shack option! It’s an authentic Arabic dining experience served family style in this amazing ocean front setting.
And no honeymoon would be complete without a list of incredible activities! They offer everything from water skiing and wake boarding to rock climbing and a sunset cruise. You can choose to stay close to the resort or they also offer adventure options that are outside of the property as well!
Of course I have to highlight the spa as well, what girl wouldn’t! It’s a complete oasis with it’s calm and relaxing atmosphere and both local and Asian inspired treatments. Have a horrible sunburn from laying out on the gorgeous beaches all day long? Enjoy their Natural Sunburn Soother treatment! I know I could definitely go for a Balinese Massage right now!

After amazing stays at Jade Mountain and Curtain Bluff, the next stop was Hermitage Bay. I have had a long time hotel crush on this hotel after seeing many pictures of the incredible cottages, and hearing so many clients rave about this hotel after returning from their honeymoons. So it was such an honor to be able to experience this special spot!
The hotel offers 25 individual cottages, all beautifully designed with dark wood. They are either on the beach with an ocean view terrace or up on the hillside with a private pool. The Hillside Suites are more private, with a ton of space on the terrace, and have gorgeous views. Further up the hill are the more private the cottages which have an even better view (which was hard to imagine)! I loved the outdoor showers and of course the spa was an essential on my to do list! It was really nice, I would definitely recommend checking it out.
They also have amazing food, the chef is incredible! Some items stay on the menu every day, and then there are also new items daily. They have a garden on property so everything is really fresh. (Tip: they make their own hot sauce which is incredible! You can buy it in the gift shop, it’s a total must have!) The beach on the property was gorgeous and gave off a private, cove type of feel. The water was sparkling blue and warm and the white sand was perfect to lay out on and enjoy a good book. It was so relaxing and beautiful! It’s the perfect place for couples to spend their first days as newlyweds getting totally pampered!
They also have a beach bar with fun cocktails and live music most nights. The restaurant is also right on the beach so you never have to leave the beautiful scenery.
It’s an all inclusive hotel which means they can arrange any boat trips or other activities you would like to do. And, since the hotel is so small, you receive really excellent service! The staff is super friendly and quickly learn your name which made me feel so welcome! Want to celebrate your honeymoon at Hermitage Bay? Couples that book their honeymoons with Ever After Honeymoons receive a half hour massage per person complimentary!
