If it is a luxury beach that you are after, you’ll have plenty of options. Here are some of the top luxury honeymoon beach destinations from across the map.

The Sarojin is almost over the top when it comes to service and amenities for guests, but you can’t complain when you are relaxing in a private gazebo overlooking the water or dining on a private meal prepared for you by top Thai chefs.

This fabulous resort is located just a 20 minute jet-boat ride from the island of Tortola, which makes it accessible but secluded within the British Virgin Islands. You won’t get busy clubs or bustling shopping malls full of other tourists, but you will get more than 1,800 acres to discover, lavish accommodation and secluded beaches with breathtaking scenery.

When elegance is what you are after for your beach honeymoon, the colonial grace and style of The Residence is the ultimate beach pick. This might not be a budget pick, but the luxury touches are well worth the expense. Imagine getting flown in via helicopter to a private landing pad on the property or even having the services of a private butler to take meal orders, deliver drinks and run you and your new partner a warm bubble bath after a long day of exploring Mauritius. Of course, the beach is definitely worth enjoying as well, and the white sand beaches on the eastern coast are often ranked as some of the best in the world.

Africa is not the first place couples think of when it comes to luxury beach honeymoons, but Zanzibar is increasingly popular among upscale newlyweds who want something unique and truly unforgettable for their once in a lifetime celebration. Baraza Resort and Spa is an all-inclusive accommodation in Zanzibar, but it includes far more than the standard drinks and buffet meals. Along with champagne, cocktails, massages and yoga classes, couples will get to enjoy traditionally-decorated accommodation with a colonial touch, access to the beach just steps from the private suites and romantic private meals served right on the sandy shoreline for you and your loved one.
