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!
Book your honeymoon to Six Senses Zighy Bay through Ever After Honeymoons
and you’ll get a complimentary 60-minute spa treatment for two! Let me know here
Nadia and her new hubby Nolan came to me wanting to honeymoon somewhere that was the perfect combination of relaxing yet adventurous all while experiencing a new culture and way of life. I knew that Bali would be the perfect place for them! I decided on the districts of Uluwatu, Seminyak, and Ubud in Bali to allow them to experience everything that they wanted to on this trip. They were able to relax on sandy beaches but also visit exciting places like the Monkey Forest and Elephant Safari Lodge!
When I asked Nadia and Nolan what they loved about Bali they answered: “We both absolutely loved the food and the service. Everyone in Bali was very hospitable. In Uluwatu we really enjoyed the Bulgari hotel and the view from the hotel. In Seminyak we enjoyed the liveliness of the town and all the beach bars and in Ubud we enjoyed visiting the Monkey Forest and Elephant Safari Lodge.”
I was able to get them a 3 bedroom Villa upgrade at the Bulgari Resort as well as desserts at night and a $100 credit for dinner. At the Oberoi Resort it was all set so that they received a welcome dessert and free dinner and then at the Uma Ubud they provided a bottle of wine and desserts as well as a complimentary cycling tour for the newlyweds. Organizing for special honeymoon upgrades is one of my favorite parts of my job and I love how well these hotels treated my clients!
Fall is officially upon us and to celebrate I’m sharing The Siam Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand. Bangkok is one of the best places to visit in November because of the great weather ranging from 70′s to 80′s, and it isn’t humid like most other months of the year.
The Siam Hotel is extraordinary with gorgeous art deco styling, one of kind architecture and views of the Chao Praya River right outside. Being one of the newest boutique hotels in the area it offers a variety of suite options from river views to rooftop decks. Of course Bangkok has plenty to explore, but onsite you can enjoy many cultural activities like yoga, tai chi, thai cooking classes and a a cruise on the hotel’s speedboat. This hotel truly prides itself in its rich history and dedication to excellent service. The entire property is just beautiful – take a look for yourself!
If you’re looking for an exotic and luxurious hotel while staying in Bangkok, this is the spot! If you mention this post I can arrange a complimentary sunset cocktail cruise on your honeymoon.

Happy Leap Day! I’m really looking forward to fun wedding industry parties the next couple nights, starting with the Utterly Engaged Leap Year Party tonight! Then tomorrow is The Cream Event, which will be featuring a number of amazing vendors in the wedding industry. I am really honored to be included!
As I am rushing around today to get through my mile long to do list, these pictures of the pools at Ubud Hanging Gardens Hotel made me pause. Just look at that view! I am constantly blown away by the pictures clients send from their honeymoons in Bali, and am hoping to visit there myself very soon! Anyone else wishing they were soaking in that pool right now?
