5 Unique Honeymoon Destinations

26th June 2019 by Natasha Goldstein

While a luxurious beach front holiday in the Maldives, Mauritius or the Seychelles is high on many couple's agenda for an unforgettable honeymoon, it isn't the perfect trip for everyone. If you're looking for something a bit different but by no means less special for your honeymoon, Dreamsaver Wedding Insurance have compiled 5 wonderfully unique honeymoon destinations around the world that are perfect for thrill-seekers, adventurers and nature lovers alike.

giraffe manor

Giraffe Manor, Kenya

If your idea of a dream getaway is being up close and personal with nature and animals, and maybe even sharing your breakfast with them, say no more. Giraffe Manor is a beautiful boutique guest house located in Nairobi set across 12 acres of private land and as I'm sure you can tell from the name, its inhabitants are friendly, curious Giraffes.

If you love wildlife, this is certainly your kind of place as nearby you can also embark on a safari in the Virunga National Park.

honeymoon antarctica


If you want a honeymoon that is truly off the beaten track, there is no where else in the world like the Antarctica. Only accessible from November to March when the ice breaks up allowing ships to pass, the icy, unpredictable terrain of the Antarctica remains predominately uninhabited and undisturbed (unless you count the penguins, blue whales and seals!)

Get back to basics with nature and take the time to enjoy and appreciate some of the furthest reaches of the earth.

honeymoon guatemala


Just across the border from Mexico, Guatemala offers a well-rounded experience no matter what kind of traveller you are. All under 'one roof', Guatemala offers luxury, picturesque scenery, wildlife, mountains, a jungle, volcanoes, ancient ruins and much more. This is one destination you could visit again and again and not have the same experience twice.

While many head to Mexico to enjoy their honeymoon, just travel a little further and experience something magically different and special at Mexico's 'not-as-well-known' sister.

honeymoon ireland


When you think of Ireland, you may not necessary think 'Honeymoon' but with its iconic castles, beautiful cliffside views, vast countryside and natural parks it may make you think twice!

Ireland has a lot to offer, so your honeymoon shouldn't be spent in just one place for the duration of your trip. If you're a couple that like to explore but don't want to skimp on the luxury, the first stop on your Ireland Honeymoon should be to County Clare to spend a few days in a gorgeous manor house viewing the local iconic attractions such as the Cliffs of Moher, Bunratty Castle and The Burren.

Other romantic hotspots in Ireland include West Cork for its natural beauty and rugged coastline and Dublin for a real tourist treat. Especially if you're a fan of Guinness or Jameson!

honeymoon pittsburgh

Pittsburgh, USA

If you're seeking a culture trip rather than a beach break for your honeymoon then Pittsburgh is the perfect place to visit. Popular destinations in the US such as New York and Chicago are still wonderful to visit but can become very costly.

Often ranked as one of America's most liveable places, Pittsburgh is home to quirky restaurants, fine art, beautiful botanical gardens and cheap shopping. If you're a lover of food, head down to Pittsburgh's own 'Little Italy' or to Primanti Bro's for one of the best sandwiches you will ever have!
