Less than 2 hours away from Singapore lies the unrivalled luxury of Langkawi It’s an easy-to-reach popular honeymoon destination very near Singapore, enabling eager honeymooners to minimise time in the air and maximise those precious cuddley moments. Right on the shores of the Andaman Sea sits Four Seasons Langkawi. Hailed as the best five star hotel in Langkawi, the resort is perfect for doing nothing at all or embarking on adventures and everything in between.
A honeymoon is as good a reason as any to splurge on the palatial beachfront villas that come with their own spa rooms and plunge pools. As tempting as it is to veg out by the pool (either yours or the adults-only infinity pool), take a boat safari into the Kilim Karst Geoforest park to watch eagles and macaques in their natural habitat.
For a dinner to remember, surprise your honey with a private chef who will whip up a dinner for two in a royal Rajasthani tent on the beach with majestic limestone cliffs as a dramatic backdrop.

Downward dog might just be the most strenuous thing you do there because The Sanchaya is all about some serious R&R.

With just 5 villas, calling Tadrai Island Resort private is absolutely accurate. One of the best resorts in Fiji for couples, it is adults-only and all inclusive, which makes for a great honeymoon package. Tranquility and peace of mind are what you will be getting, especially on milestone vacations like a honeymoon. And Fiji itself is definitely a top contender for honeymoon destinations, with all the romantic makings of Maldives but less crowds and fairly undiscovered. It is mainly popular with visitors from nearby Australia and New Zealand. With direct flights now connecting Singapore to Fiji, if you’re really looking for a romantic honeymoon that dreams are made of, Fiji is it.
Indulge in Pacific Rim cuisine and Fijian specialities after a day of island-hopping or hand-line fishing, then retreat to your villa to a coconut milk bath drawn for you to soothe the sting of the sun.
There won’t be a lack of things to do in Fiji and we could list them for you but when you’re nestled deep in idyllic paradise, nothing is the best thing to do.
