Wedding planning has its own fun and excitement but the charm of honeymoon planning is a different vibe! This is one trip that you look forward to after the whole wedding madness is done. So it’s important to plan it right. That is why we made things simple for you by asking three real couples on how they honeymooned, including all hotel information as well as budget so that you don’t have to start from scratch. Get reading and get honeymoon planning!

Drishti and Atit

Location – Maldives

Total Budget – INR 2,50,000 for 4 nights, 5 days per couple (stay+food+flight)

Maldives was a no brainer as we had a pandemic wedding and most places were shut during 2021 for travel as such. We wanted to go all out with our honeymoon as we compromised a lot on the wedding because of the restrictions. We stayed at Centara Ras Fushi Resort & Spa Maldives and it was so amazing. They have tons of activities lined up for you. You can opt for the butler service also which is like a private concierge. They manage everything for you – booking restaurants, scuba dives, any setups like a private movie screening on the beach and all. Totally worth the money.

Flights Cost – INR 30,000 per person/round trip (from Hyderabad)

Hotel Stay – INR 1,90,000 per couple, all inclusive

We had all our meals, activities like snorkelling and a cruise lunch via the hotel only so all costs were part of the package deal we did with them. We also had a sea plane which was used for hotel transfers included in the deal along with a spa treatment for both of us and beach date.

Sashwat and Kirti

Location – Switzerland and Northern Italy

Total Budget – INR 4,90,000 for 9 nights, 10 days per couple (stay+food+flight)

Zermatt


Bernina Express


Lake Como


Tuscany

Flights Cost – INR 130,000 per person/round trip

Hotel Stay – Approximately INR 1,00,000 for all hotels.

Internal Travel – Approximately INR 40,000-50,000

Food and Drinks for all days – INR 80,000-90,000

Europe was a dream honeymoon destination and we planned it around two places that we had to visit instead of doing the whole Europe tour at once. We did the best in our list since this was our first trip together to Europe and both of us had not visited these places before. We did this pre-covid so costs are accordingly.

Also we did these locations because we wanted to travel on the Bernina Express train which has the most amazing locations ever!

Places visited – Zurich, Lucerne, Interlaken, Zermatt, Lake Como, Milan, Tuscany and Florence.

Hotel Details – Stayed at Ibis Styles Zurich City Center at Zurich which was around INR 9,000 per night once converted. We kept this as our base in Switzerland and kept doing day trips to Lucerne, Interlaken and Zermatt. We mainly travelled by trains internally.

We then stayed at Magville Hotel, a boutique property in Milan. It was around INR 10,000 per night but honestly wasn’t the best of places to stay so I don’t recommend it. We did the same thing as Switzerland and kept this as a base city and travelled across. I am into fashion and hence Milan was a must-do for me. You can choose to go to Southern Italy too if Milan or Como isn’t a must-do for you.

I totally recommend doing smaller towns and villages if you like scenic views and also travelling by train as the journey is very comfortable and views are like wow. Bus travel is recommended if you are looking for budget travel.

If you are looking at budget options for a European honeymoon, check this list of dos and don't! 

Anuya and Abhijeet

Location – Bali

Total Budget – 1,50,000 for 5 nights, 6 days per couple (stay+food+flight)

Nusa Penida


Ubud

So we picked Bali because we wanted to do a beach location and wanted someplace fun. We wanted to party as well as chill and did not want to go to Thailand so Bali it was. We did Ubud and Seminyak. Nusa Penida Island is another place that we did a day tour and we wish we spent more days, so that is something I would recommend. In terms of our cost, our flights were relatively cheap as we got good deals during the online sale.

Flights Cost – INR 35,000 per person/round trip

Hotel Stay – INR 43,000 in total

Internal Travel – INR 15,000

Food and Drinks for all days – INR 20,000

Activities – INR 10,000

At Seminyak, we stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott Bali Seminyak Resort, which was INR 7,000 per night, including breakfast. At Ubud, we stayed at an Airbnb which was so amazing, overlooking the paddy fields which cost us INR 6000 per night.

We did white water rafting, some water sports on the beach, a trek and snorkelling. We highly recommend scuba diving at Nusa Penida.
