Honeymoon Destinations in January

ditulis oleh : Jomblo Terhormat 27 Oktober 2013
If you’ve chosen a honeymoon in January you are probably keen to jet away for some warm temperatures and sunshine. Needless to say, it’s midwinter across Europe so you’ll need to tot up some air miles to find guaranteed hot weather – unless of course you like the idea of snuggling up in front of a roaring log fire or taking to the ski slopes.

With the weather at home likely to be miserable in January, you want to be doubly sure that you are jetting out to balmy temperatures and guaranteed sunshine. You don’t want to fly half way across the world to find yourselves in the middle of a monsoon.

Luckily, there are many great honeymoon destinations in January. Most involve a lengthy flight, but there are a few within a few hours flying time where you can crack open the sunblock and hit the sunbeds.

January is one of the best months to visit Southeast Asia. Thailand has reliable temperatures of 29-32C. With great beaches, delicious food and value for money, it’s a great winter honeymoon choice, though you should avoid the east Gulf coast in January, when heavy rainfall is possible. The Andaman coast is better than Koh Samui. I recommend the Sarojin which has just 56 chic rooms set in 10 acres of tropical beachfront gardens.

A little further south, off Malaysia’s western coast, the island resort of Pangkor Laut is very special with ancient rainforest and dreamy beaches within its 300 acres. There are over-water villas, a superb spa and spectacular cuisine.

Or how about a romantic train journey – Fables of the Hills – from Singapore to Bangkok on board the Eastern & Oriental Express with stopovers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s Cameron Highlands, Penang and the River Kwai. See more honeymoons by rail.

Vietnam is a good winter honeymoon getaway, particularly now that there are direct flights from the UK. You’ll find incredible cultural treasures, lively bars, fabulous cuisine and charming colonial hotels. Take a Chinese junk cruise of Halong Bay or set sail for a lazy ride down the Mekong River. There is a new generation of sleek and sexy hotels too.

Cambodia is emerging as a wonderful honeymoon destination and is at its best in January. Top of most people’s lists are the jungle-clad temples of Angkor Wat but you can also walk with elephants, sleep on a floating river lodge and stay at the Art Deco style Knai Bang Chatt in the coastal village of Kep.

If you’ve got your heart set on Bali, January is a lovely month to visit, but be prepared for a slight risk of rain. This gentle island won’t disappoint with its welcoming people, rich culture, fabulous food and ultra romantic hotels. Best places to stay include the Spa Village Resort Tembok Bali, Puri Ganesha, a laid-back luxury hideaway in the north of the island and the great-value Gajah Mina Beach Resort on a surf beach in the south-west.

The Maldives has its dry season in January and resorts are falling over themselves to be the most romantic in the world with overwater villas, underwater spas and even 24-hour spas. If you’re on a budget, there are some fabulous all-inclusive options which mean you don’t have to worry about the final bill on checkout.

NIYAMA Maldives is a sexy new blow-the-budget resort that opened in March 2012. It offers a selection of water studios and pavilions – most with a private pool – plus an underwater nightclub and the chance to spend a night at sea in a luxuriously-fitted traditional sail boat, complete with your own personal chef and butler. I also recommend the ultra-luxe Huvafen Fushi.

You can also very easily combine the Maldives with a week in Sri Lanka on this fabulous twin-centre honeymoon. You can also get married in Sri Lanka (though not in the Maldives). The two destinations are just an hour’s flight apart.

Colourful India is also all about culture, adventure and great food and in January honeymooners can head to northern India or Rajasthan for mild temperatures making it ideal for sightseeing – with Delhi at around 20C. Try this Classic Rajasthan private tour. For more ideas, see this selection of honeymoons in India.

For something different, how about a river cruise in China. Join the luxurious Sanctuary MS Yangzi Explorer which has just 124 passengers on board, plus a great spa, on a fascinating journey down the Yangtze River.
