If you’re reading this and are a newly-wed, congratulations! And may you have a wonderful life ahead.
One of the most exciting things to look forward to post marriage is the honeymoon. You may be in search of that perfect dream location to spend, perhaps, the most memorable time of your life. However, as you may have already noticed, some of the most popular locations are quite expensive and out of your reach.
If that’s the case, don’t worry. There’s still hope for you.
Your ideal honeymoon location doesn’t need to be popular or expensive to be perfect. Here are the top five ideal honeymoon destinations under $2500:
1. Enjoy cozy comforts at Alegria, Provence, France
Travel to the land of romance, away from the world, enjoying a few perfect days of blissful serenity. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, in the tiny Provencal village of Aups, the Alegria welcomes newly-wed couples at a regular basis. At $189, the room fair is highly affordable without losing all the comforts of high-end hotels. And as you step out of the hotel, you step into the cobblestoned French streets and are instantly transported to the earlier, more peaceful, era.
2. Spend some private time at Auberge du Soleil, Napa Valley, California
If there’s any place for an affordable honeymoon, it’s Napa Valley in California. Among the affordable B&Bs, the place that truly stands out is the Auberge du Soleil. It was built in 1981 by owner Claude Rouas, way before all the other hotel chains. And it’s still run with the same amount of care and consideration as before. The Auberge du Soleil also delivers on its promise of great food with a Michelin-starred restaurant. Visit for the cheap rooms. Stay for the exquisite wine.
3. Wake up in the heart of the mountains at the Edgewater, Seattle, Washington
The only thing that can top spending a clear, sunny day in Seattle is waking up surrounded by the majestic Olympic Mountains. If you want to experience Seattle’s awe-inspiring beauty, you need to stay at the Edgewater. For just $1025 for three nights, it is comfortably affordable. So stop worrying about your wallet and enjoy a view of the crystal clear waters of Elliott Bay as the sun sets.
4. Surround yourself with history at Grande Oasis Tulum, Riviera Maya, Mexico
If you want to travel to Mexico for the honeymoon, there’s no better place to stay than the Grande Oasis Tulum. Spend five wondrous nights at the 114-room respite. When it comes to things to do, the Grande Oasis Tulum has a lot to offer. The 13 restaurants and 15 bars provide plenty of choice to eat and drink. Spend the nights having exquisite dinners and the days enjoying water sports and snorkeling in the coral reef. You can also visit the Tulum archeological site to witness the wonders of Mayan civilization.
5. Party hard at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada
For those who want to spend their honeymoon surrounded by the glitz and glam of Las Vegas, the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino is your perfect pick. What’s Vegas without gambling, right? The resort offers the most unique gaming experience featuring the Rockstar Club, table game, an all-new Poker Lounge, and the infamous Center Bar. Three nights for just $846 is not a bad deal either.
