It can be simple to get caught up in the concept that you need to spend a lot of money to have a memorable and romantic honeymoon. This is a common theme when organizing your honeymoon. However, there are many places on earth that are both beautiful and reasonably priced for you to have a budget-freindly honeymoon without breaking the bank.
Europe is one of the most popular destinations for a low-cost honeymoon. Portugal, Greece, and Croatia, for example, provide beautiful scenery, a diverse culture, and reasonable costs. The volcanic landscapes of Portugal's Azores islands are breathtaking, and the Aegean Sea views from Greece's Santorini Island are breathtaking. Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia is renowned for its stunning lakes and waterfalls.
The ideal option for you, taking into consideration location, romanticity and budget is probably Artemis Village in Greece. It is just a few steps away from Karterados Beach on Santorini Island. There are lovely sunset views onto the beach and a comfortable large pool available and free airport transfer for about $30 per person per night
Asia is another fantastic choice for a low-cost honeymoon. At a fraction of the price of many other locations, nations like Vietnam, Thailand, and Cambodia offer stunning beaches, delectable cuisine, and a rich culture. Ha Long Bay in Vietnam, Phuket in Thailand, and Siem Reap in Cambodia are all excellent choices.
A budget-friendly option in Cambodia is the Kep Lodge which will cost a mere $20 per night per person including breakfast. For a few dollars more, at $30 per night per person per night, you can stay at the Palm Coco Mantra. This is on the beach in Thailand and provides more upmarket accommodation that tends towards luxury. If your budget is really low and you don’t need the frills and fuss and want to meet new people you can stay at the Air Manis Secret Surfcamp in Indonesia for around $2,50 per person per night.
A low-cost honeymoon has several choices in South America as well. Ecuador, Peru, and Colombia, for example, have stunning landscapes, an illustrious past, and reasonable pricing. Considerable possibilities include seeing the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador, Machu Picchu in Peru, and Cartagena in Colombia.
If the beach is of importance to you, then you could stay at the Mistica Island Hostel in Columbia for about $28 per person per night. This is a stunning island location with a direct connection to nature. The price includes breakfast and a private beach area just for guests. Machu Picchu, the amazing Inca ruins in South America, is one of our favourite travel options. It is a must-see place for anyone who wants to see one of the most amazing places on earth. You can stay at the Machu Picchu Land hotel for about $17 per person per night. It’s not overly romantic, but it is well priced and convenient, and you get to see one of our top ten favorite places to visit in the world.
Additionally, there are many possibilities in North America for a low-cost honeymoon. Beautiful landscapes, a diverse population, and reasonable costs may be found in nations like Canada, Mexico, and the United States. Considerably less budget friendly alternatives include Hawaii in the United States, Tulum in Mexico, and Banff National Park in Canada.
If you are a mountain lover, then Banff Rocky Mountain Resort may be the right option for you. This awesome resort has many fantastic facilities including an indoor pool and indoor and outdoor hot tubs, a fitness centre, tennis courts and convenient access to some of the world’s finest hiking trails. At about $57 per person per night, it is certainly worth it.
In Mexico we found a very accommodating place to stay in Acapulco with easy beach access, a swimming pool and a fitness centre. The cost per person per night was approximately $16. The name of the place is as long as the last two sentences so we call it Donde Mira. If you are looking for a beach romantic honeymoon, Canon Beach is a great option. Check out our previous post about the best beaches in the United States. Otherwise, we found a place near Mount Rainier National Park called Mountain Meadows Inn. This is a picturesque and secluded honeymoon location for a couple looking to get their romance on.
There are many locations worldwide where you can plan your honeymoon that are both romantic and reasonably priced. Every couple on a budget can choose a romantic honeymoon in Europe, an exciting journey in Asia, a unique cultural experience in South America, or a natural wonder in North America. Just in case you were wondering, we left Africa off the list for now due to the high cost of flights. This is because we weren't able to narrow it down. We will create a separate blog post for budget romantic African honeymoons
