The Legian in Seminyak, Bali

Destination Spotlight, Feature, Hotel Feature |

After a couple days relaxing at The Bulgari Resort in Uluwatu, we headed north to The Legian in Seminyak.  I was really excited to visit this hotel and Seminyak after hearing such great things, and was certainly not disappointed!

Seminyak is the most trendy area of Bali.  It is a really cool beach town with cute boutiques, fun beach bars, and excellent restaurants. Seminyak is also a popular spot for surfers.  This just might be my favorite beach town I have ever visited! Everywhere we went had such a fun atmosphere. I would highly recommend a stop at the beach bar Ku De Ta (and then download their albums on Itunes!) and dinners at the restaurants Sardine and Sarong!

The Legian is the perfect place to stay in Seminyak.  The location could not be more central- right on the beach and walking distance to the town.    The hotel has a gorgeous 3 tiered infinity pool, and day beds right over the beach.  And incredibly nice, friendly service.

For an extra special honeymoon, stay at The Club at The Legian, which is right across the street from the main part of the hotel.  Here are gorgeous one bedroom villas with huge private pools!  Super romantic, private, and spacious.

The Ranch at Rock Creek

Destination Spotlight, Feature |

I recently returned from the most incredible stay at The Ranch at Rock Creek in Montana!  This is a luxury ranch with a ton of fun activities, incredible food, and really genuine friendly service.  This certainly isn’t your typical honeymoon spot, but is perfect for couples that are really active and are wanting to do something different for their honeymoon.

This is truly an all inclusive experience- not just your food and drinks, but also a ton of activities.  We enjoyed a morning hike with gorgeous views, shot clay pigeons, went horse back riding, and even shot rifles and pistols!  If I had more time there I would have also loved to go fly fishing, try out their 3D archery, and shoot paintballs.  At night is a lot of fun too- the Silver Dollar Saloon has a bowling alley, shuffleboard, and a movie cinema!

The accommodations are really beautiful as well.  They have rooms in the lodge, luxury tents on the creek, and also private cabins.  Each is immaculately decorated in true ranch style, with fun little details.  Everywhere is really spread out which gives you a lot of privacy, and every guest has their own bike to easily get around.  We stayed in the Ponderosa cabin which I loved!  A few other favorites are Trapper Cabin for total privacy, Bluebird Cabin for romance, and The Historic Barn for families or a big group of friends.

I was so impressed by the details here.  The Ranch provides all gear, including cowboy boots!  And literally anything you ask for they will provide.  Popcorn while you are bowling? Of course! Going on an early morning excursion? They will have coffee and snacks ready for you!  Want to have a special dining experience? They will set up a private lunch or dinner on any number of private spots around the property.

 

Does this sound like your ideal honeymoon spot?  Or somewhere you would like to get away to for a long weekend?  Email us!  Clients of Ever After Honeymoons receive some special amenities during their stay!

Le Sirenuse

Destination Spotlight, Feature, Honeymoon Perk, Hotel Feature |

I adore Italy, but after visiting Le Sirenuse in Positano, it has quickly become one of my favorite Italian destinations! Couples can enjoy the spectacular Amalfi Coast from the steps of the hotel! The view is breathtaking!

The Sant’Antonio, an absolutely gorgeous wooden boat, takes up to 12 people for complimentary daily excursions along the coast, from June to September (weather permitting).

Couples can experience Italian luxury by renting a private boat through Le Sirenuse to explore the coast. Drop off at any of the local favorite spots: Pompei, Paestum, Ravello or Amalfi! The Le Sirenuse concierge provides complete assistance with organizing any excursion. Yachting in Italy? Yes please!

Couples receive $100 spa services credit when they book through Ever After Honeymoons.  Email me to plan your Italian getaway!

Honeymoon Destinations of 2013

Feature |

Glamour Magazine recently reached out and asked me to provide my 5 favorite destinations and hotels for honeymoons in 2013.  It was so tough to narrow down- there are so many fabulous spots!  I put together a list of my current favorite spots, based on what I am loving and what clients are asking for when planning their 2013 honeymoons.

First up, Fiji!  With a number of private island resorts, including the newest couples only resort Tadrai Island Resort, Fiji is the perfect spot for couples looking to relax in a beautiful & secluded destination.

Next up is Croatia.  With a beautiful coastline, cool medieval towns, and small islands off the coast, Croatia is a dream honeymoon spot.  My favorite hotel in Croatia is Villa Dubrovnik, with balconies right over the water!

My next favorite is the Amalfi Coast in Italy.  Italy is such a beautiful and romantic country, and the Amalfi Coast has small towns with gorgeous scenery and incredible little restaurants.  My favorite hotel is Palazzo Avino in the quaint town of Ravello.

St Barths is another fabulous spot!  This island has such a unique French and Caribbean culture, with boutique hotels, gourmet restaurants, and white sand beaches.  The perfect honeymoon hotel is Hotel Le Toiny which has private villas, each featuring their own private pools!

Last up is St Lucia.  This island is so green and lush, with the most warm and friendly people.  BodyHoliday Resort is the perfect spot for active couples, where activities like water skiing, guided ocean swims, paddle board yoga classes, archery, and so much more, is already included!

So tell me…which of these fabulous destinations would you pick for your honeymoon?
