The honeymoon is a magical time when couples celebrate new beginnings and the start of a wondrous life of love spent together. During the honeymoon, newlyweds have the luxury of being totally absorbed in one another and usually take this time to rekindle their romantic feelings towards one another after a period of time which is usually filled with hectic wedding planning.

For many couples, the honeymoon is often their first chance to catch their breath after the wedding and the only chance that they will get to travel in the near future. That is why it is extremely important to plan a honeymoon that will be filled with glorious memories to treasure for years to come. There are many options when it comes to planning the perfect and memorable honeymoon. From luxury cruises and all-inclusive resorts to private honeymoon suites and honeymoon trips catered to your unique personalities and lifestyles, there are a host of ideas to choose from and establishments who strive to make every couple's honeymoon dreams come true.

While only you and your betrothed are the ones truly qualified to plan the perfect honeymoon getaway, you can help make the planning process easier by seeking advice and doing some homework before you plan your trip. One of the best places to do this is online where there is a never ending supply of information on specific travel destinations, cruises, resorts and suites available at the click of your mouse.

In an effort to help you begin your search, we are going to share with you five honeymoon ideas that may just be perfect for you. Plan a unique honeymoon trip If you love adventure and envision a honeymoon where you call all of the shots, why not plan a honeymoon trip catered to you and your significant other's unique tastes and personalities.

With a honeymoon tailor made by the two of you, you can do just about anything. From sky diving and casino action to culture and history, there is no end to what you can include in your honeymoon getaway. Do you love the outdoors? If so, perhaps you should consider a hiking honeymoon in the Swiss Alps. Nothing comes close to the experience of hiking through the Swiss Alps on a couple getaway. This beautiful, lush region is the home to breathtaking views including mysterious moors, cascading waterfalls, jagged rock formations, and lush Alpine wildflower meadows. Imagine days filled with leisurely strolls through the majestic Alpine mountains while you breathe in the crisp, clean mountain air and visit with the local Alpine cheese farmers and discover their secrets. Days upon days will stretch out before you and your partner with nothing more to do than experience the exquisite beauty of this mountain region and to become closer as a couple.

Or maybe you're a couple of hermits who like to spend your time being pampered amid the most luxuriant and breathtaking settings. If this sounds like you, maybe you should take a honeymoon spa getaway to the Arizona desert. Imagine being sheltered away from the rest of the world by millions of acres of rugged forests and the walls of a luxury resort. In every direction that you look, your eyes are met with the exquisite beauty of the natural, breathtaking red rocks of Arizona and your ears are met with the sweet sighs of the forest.
Take a honeymoon cruise What could be more romantic than sipping champagne with your loved one on the deck of a luxury cruise liner as you idly watch exotic landscapes slip quietly away until they become one with horizon?

Or what could be better than a night filled with fine dining, entertainment and a private retreat into luxurious quarters complete with a balcony overlooking the ever-changing ocean? All of this and more can be a reality if you choose to take a cruise for your honeymoon. When taking a honeymoon cruise, the destination options are as endless as the activities that you can enjoy while en-route.

Choose from exotic destinations such as Tahiti, the Mexican Riviera, the Galapagos Islands, the Caribbean, Costa Rica, the Far East, Europe, Alaska and many more. While away the hours swimming in the on-deck pool, getting spa treatments or simply relaxing on deck as the salt spray kisses your skin. The benefits associated with taking a cruise also set this getaway apart from other honeymoon options.

When arriving on board your floating palace not only will you have all of the amenities of a five-star hotel right at your fingertips, you will also never have to unpack more than once. If you were to visit all of the places on your honeymoon that can be included in a deluxe cruise package on your own, you would have to change hotels several different times and would likely miss most of the scenery as you fly over it on the way to the next destination on your itinerary.
Book a private honeymoon suite If your daydreams of the perfect honeymoon conjure up images of an extravagant, cozy retreat where you and your honey can create a world in which only the two of you live, perhaps you should consider booking a private suite for your honeymoon. In your very own honeymoon suite, you can enjoy opulent surroundings and go for days without seeing another sole. When booking a honeymoon suite, you have many options as to where to take your honeymoon.

Most fine hotels cater to newlyweds and have sumptuous rooms and suites set aside for honeymooners. That means that you can find a suite in almost any city or lush paradise that your heart desires. You can use your honeymoon suite as a luxuriant base for all of your other honeymoon activities or choose to never leave your suite at all.

The choice is yours. Stay at an all-inclusive honeymoon resort One step up from the honeymoon suite is the all-inclusive honeymoon resort. This honeymoon option includes posh accommodations situated amid conveniences and attractions that can only be found in some of the world's most exotic locations. And all-inclusive means just that; you pay only one price and everything else is taken care of including meals, entertainment and transportation. And staying at a resort means that you will never get bored. In addition to having recreational activities and entertainment on site, resorts are normally situated in breathtakingly beautiful destinations, which you and your partner can explore during the day.

Take for instance Costa Rica, a popular honeymoon destination. Here you can find active and inactive volcanoes, lush tropical forests, turquoise seas, and hundreds of sandy beaches. You can enjoy activities as varied as sightseeing, hiking, fishing, kayaking, sailing, surfing, white water rafting, diving or touring historical sights such as archaeological ruins and ancient Indian burial grounds. The towns also provide many activities such as shopping, browsing through art galleries, and fine dining and entertainment.

Visit Hawaii on your honeymoon Hawaii is the top honeymoon destination in the world and for good reason. Hawaii is home to four of America's top 10 beaches and makes honeymooners looking for romance feel right at home with its magnificent sunsets, temperate climate and top honeymoon resorts. Where else can you find the beauty and tranquility associated with Hawaii's pristine beaches and turquoise waters without having to leave the United States?

With all that Hawaii has to offer, one might think that the islands of Hawaii can be too crowded for a truly private and romantic honeymoon getaway, but that is simply not the case. Once you leave the hustle and bustle of the airport, you and your beau will find enchanting, private spots filled with fragrant, tropical flowers; private beaches; and quaint restaurants and shops that will make you feel like you are miles away from civilization.

Now it's time to put your imagination to work As you can see from these five ideas, there are a lot of options to choose from when planning your honeymoon, and we have barely touched the tip of the iceberg.

The truth is that there are almost as many honeymoon options and package ideas as there are honeymooners. So, the trick is to find the ones that are perfect for you and narrow those down until you have found the honeymoon that dreams are made of.

This can be a confusing and frustrating process, especially if you are working with a set budget as most of us do. But the most important thing to remember is not to book your honeymoon to a specific location just because you got a great deal or someone has told you that you should go there. A honeymoon is a private, magical affair and should be a journey that both of you will remember and cherish for a lifetime.

Make the planning for it just as sweet by making this a romantic little project for the two of you. Discuss where you would like to go and the things you would like to do. You may just find that planning for your honeymoon is a sweet journey all its own.
