One of the most frustrating parts of traveling has to be that moment when you finally get to your (amazing) hotel room and notice that the electrical plugs are different…and you’re not prepared! Even if you’re planning on “unplugging” while on your honeymoon, if you want to use your phone as a camera or you want to blow dry your hair, you might be caught in a sticky situation.
So instead of trying to figure out what you need for which country and investing in multiple, my best advice to you in to get an all-in-one universal travel adapter! One of my favorites is the Ansmann version that can easily be found online or even cheaper via Amazon. These adapters can be used in over 150 countries and is one of the safest in the world. No matter where you go this little guy will be your best friend!
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!
Something I love about Greece is there’s a little bit of something for everyone. Whether you love adventure and sight seeing, relaxing on a beautiful coastline, or partying all night long, you can do it all! When packing for your trip to the Mediterranean paradise, make sure you put something in there for whatever may come up. I’ve picked three outfits that I think would not only fit the relaxed Grecian vibe but also make you feel and look fab!
For a day on the Mediterranean beaches of Santorini…
For sight seeing around Athens…
For a night out in Mykonos…

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!

While I love planning honeymoons for couples in newlywed bliss, I have a special soft spot for this anniversary trip I planned for Garret and Katie. They were never able to take a true honeymoon after their big day so needless to say, seven years later, they were ready! With such high expectations for this trip, I knew I wanted to make it ten days that they would never forget!
Who better to tell you how much they enjoyed their trip to The Viceroy Anguilla and share some photos than Katie herself…
First off, I think you can see our excitement. Thanks, Katie, for making this “honeymoon” a reality. We’re so incredibly thankful.
Offering five restaurants, two beaches, and three pools, the Viceroy made it difficult to leave the resort. What more could we ask for? We were, however, walking distance to several restaurants along Meads Bay which included Blanchard’s Beach Shack (they have a delicious Mahi Mahi BLT), The Straw Hat, and Jacala. Coba was, by far, our best meal. Exceptional service (they even offered complimentary champagne in celebration of our “honeymoon”), mouth-watering red snapper and ahi, and a decadent chocolate dessert. Yummy!
Calming and luxurious, our hotel room (aka mini mansion) with its enormous bed and deep-soaking tub was an oasis. After a day lounging at Meads Bay or the infinity pool, one of my favorite aspects of our hotel was when we walked into our room we were greeted by the smell of fresh, citrusy peppermint. It was so refreshing. I wish I could encapsulate that smell and live with it permanently. It’s the small things!
We ventured out to see one of the first resorts on the island, Cap Juluca, because we knew it had primo choice when selecting its location over 25 years ago. Although the resort can’t compare to the Viceroy, it does offer one of the most breathtaking views of crystal clear blue water and white sand. We felt like we were on another planet; there were only three other people there! It was fun to take a jaunt over for part of day!
Breakfast at Aleta’s was the way to start the morning and how could anyone go wrong with this view!
I’m so happy they had a great time at one of my favorite spots in the Caribbean. If you are interested in booking your own trip here, click here to let me know!
