You'll have a dedicated specialist helping you throughout, taking the time to get to know you so your itinerary can be tailored perfectly for you. And, as you'll discover, it's the little details and special touches that set Turquoise apart from the rest, such as the award-winning bespoke gift-list service and the surprise gifts when you arrive on honeymoon.
The Turquoise team only recommend resorts and destinations they have experienced first-hand, so you can rest assured they really are great, and to offer you some year-round inspiration, they have created a honeymoon video for every season. Take a look at lovely real-life couple Max and Meegan's video below. They enjoyed their autumn honeymoon in Bali and Lombok thanks to Turquoise.
Max and Meegan went to Bali for their honeymoon, spending a week in Ubud at the beautiful Alila Ubud followed by a week on Lombok at the luxurious Sudamala Resort.
Max We'd never booked a holiday through a specialist travel company before ... It was so nice to know we had someone who was always available to us.
Meegan Turquoise do this amazing thing where they put together a folder that looks like a gift, and Max gave me this folder on the morning after our wedding after breakfast, because I had no idea where we were going. He handed it to me and I opened it up and it had this beautiful picture of Bali, and it said "You're going to Bali"... It was the best surprise!
Max [Turquoise] planned out all the moving between the different places, and connected us with local tour operators who would give us all the options of exciting things to do around there.
Meegan In Ubud we stayed in the most gorgeous resort with this amazing infinity pool... On Lombok there was clear blue water and white sand, and the restaurant kind of went onto the beach, so most nights you'd be having supper in the sand, which was amazing. We loved [our honeymoon] so much. It was so perfect for us and so personal. I don't think we'll ever top the holiday we had with Turquoise in Bali.
Autumn is a lovely time of year to go on honeymoon. Not only are you out of the peak holiday season - so most destinations will be quieter and the prices lower - but jetting off to somewhere exotic and hot is a great way to keep that summer feeling going! The tough part is trying to decide where to go. Here are Turquoise's top three recommendations.
Max and Meegan, stars of the autumn honeymoon film (watch it above, if you haven't already), combined the Indonesian islands of Bali and Lombok on their once-in-a-lifetime trip. Bali ticks all the boxes for a honeymoon, with culture, adventure, spas, scenery and beaches in abundance. The magical town of Ubud in central Bali will open your eyes to the island's ancient history and Buddhist roots. The Alila Ubud hotel, where Max and Meegan stayed, is set among lush green jungle and rice paddy fields - it's one of the most spectacular locations in the world. And if the busy beaches of southern Bali don't appeal (party-seekers will love Seminyak), then the neighbouring island of Lombok offers a sleepy alternative. Beyond the beaches there are mountains to climb and local villages to explore. Plus, the nearby Gili Islands make for a fun day trip - if you can tear yourself away from your sun lounger!
Located in the heart of the South Pacific, Fiji is made up of 333 magical islands…many of which remain uninhabited and untouched. Compared to many other destinations around the world…it is the people which make Fiji truly unique. A more welcoming nation would be hard to find and from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave (and beyond!) you will feel part of the Fiji family. There is no escaping the fact that Fiji is a long way away (26 hours!) but it is so worth the journey. Turquoise recommends seeing at least two islands…combining one of the larger more remote jungle clad islands of the north with one of the smaller islands within the Mamanuca or Yasawa Islands for some total R&R.
The ultimate island hopping honeymoon destination, The Seychelles offer honeymooners a unique experience like no other in the Indian Ocean. The main islands are granitic, boasting vast white beaches framed by enormous granitic boulders and a lush jungle interior. The outer islands are a lot more Maldivian esque. Flat, sandy, coralline cays – fringed with palm trees on land and coral reefs at sea. A honeymoon itinerary combining the main islands of Mahe and Praslin, as well as a few nights on one of the outer private islands is hard to beat. PLUS The Seychelles is one of the only places in the world you can get up close and personal with a Giant Tortoise, which still roam freely on a number of islands that can be visited.
