When booking your honeymoon there are certain criteria people have in mind for your holiday of a lifetime. As well as the perfect location, beautiful settings and gorgeous weather, you begin looking for all the lovely freebies you can get with a honeymoon, to make this trip the most special of your lives.
Lots of tour operators these days throw in several complimentary items with honeymoon packages, so if you’re keen on getting a free gift or two, read on to find out what you can receive.
We all dream of booking the honeymoon suite at a hotel, especially if you’re actually going on your honeymoon. But when you weigh up the costs, you might decide that the added expense isn’t something you can afford. That is why it is so brilliant when some hotels offer to give you a free upgrade to the honeymoon – or another fancy – suite.
When booking your trip, we advise you to look for accommodation that has special deals on the rooms such as this. You might also find offers for some hotels that allow you to get one or two nights free if you stay a certain amount of time. If you go on a safari honeymoon, you may get one night free and an upgrade to a romantic lodge with a private pool – heaven!
They weren’t the only treats you may be given though, and you may also be lucky enough to receive a free bottle of champagne. In fact, we discovered that lots of hotels are keen to offer loved-up brides and grooms some complimentary bubbly. This is often stipulated when you book the room (indeed, it could tempt you to choose one hotel over another!), but you might instead be surprised by the generous offer and find a chilled bottle and two glasses when you arrive – ideal after a long flight across the world!
There’s nothing you may enjoy more than spending time with your new husband having a romantic dinner, and we think you should have as many of these as possible on your honeymoon. This is why we specifically look at the different restaurants and cuisines available at the hotels we are considering – however, as well as having amazing dinners out at luxurious eateries, you might also have the chance to enjoy a private candlelit dining experience.
Some hotels might offer you and your spouse the opportunity to have a three-course meal on its beach, pier or other private area. Some enjoy a really special dinner alone in a gazebo by the sea with their own private waiting service all evening, delicious food and the most spectacular views.
Another thing you may appreciate on your honeymoon is the chance to enjoy the hotel’s spa facilities – especially if you found the task of organising the wedding a particularly stressful one! If rest and relaxation are two highly important criteria for your romantic break, look for resorts that have their own treatment rooms. Offers for free couples’ massages, facials, mud wraps and other luxury experiences are also often available. Having one or two of these will certainly leave you feeling very special on your honeymoon – especially if you get them for free!
Wherever you decide to go for your romantic break – from following these steps and enjoying a safari in Africa to embarking on a romantic honeymoon in the Caribbean - keep these freebies in mind when booking your trip. This way, you can ensure you have the best holiday of your lives.
