The Bawah Guide to planning the perfect honeymoon

With so many decisions to make whilst planning your wedding, we thought we’d
help take the stress out of one part for you – the honeymoon!

Our handy guide of top tips, sourced from online experts, will make organising your perfect romantic getaway easy - leaving you more time to spend on the dress, the venue, the cake .....…...... anyway, here you go:

 

1. Decide What Type of Adventure you Both Want

In the wise words of Martha Stewart’s  infamous weddings team, top of the list is:
“figuring out what shared experiences you're both enthusiastic about and ranking the
ideas on a bucket list of sorts.”  

95756DBA-A49C-4B3E-9739-0A33854EE400

 

It may be that one of you prefers a city break and the other a beach.  Remember, you can often combine the two by choosing a honeymoon destination that offers the best of both worlds.

All trips to Bawah Reserve start in Singapore, which provides the perfect solution city/beach plan. Enjoy some time discovering the vibrant garden city before heading to the stunning beaches of our exclusive island resort. How to get to Bawah Reserve.

 

2. Incorporate Some All-Important Downtime

For a great honeymoon, take advice from The Huffington Post: “You just got married!
It's a time to celebrate but go gently. Avoid planning too many activities in advance;
see how you feel once you get there. Allow time to do absolutely nothing.”

Tailor your days so you can create a honeymoon that caters to your wants and
needs as a new couple. Whether you choose to be outdoor adventurers with an
appetite for exploration one day, or paradise seekers looking for relaxation the next,
Bawah Reserve is the perfect honeymoon resort that caters for it all. Whilst there are a number of activities included in your package, you can also chose from a list of fabulous add on experiences to enhance your time on Bawah.
 Our island team can help you plan your stay - do as little or as much as you like. Create your own unique romance in a quintessential honeymoon location. Activities at Bawah Reserve. 


3. Be Healthy

No 1 wedding app The Knot,  is spot on when they say:  “Physically and mentally, you'll likely be veryfragile; don't be surprised if you feel unusually tired or if tempers flare during the first

few days of your trip. Speed your recovery - and save the rest of your trip - by
balancing your time at the bar and in bed.”

Bawah-reserve-medium-res-0088

At Bawah Reserve, we recommend beginning the day with some light exercise. Try a
gentle movement class, a light hike to experience an amazing sunrise view, or even
a kayak/paddleboard around the island. Bank some health points at the start of your
day, leaving you to do whatever you want for the rest of it – however indulgent!

4. Be Aware of Hidden Costs

Brides.com have got it right by adding "budget" to their list of top tips: “Weddings and
honeymoons are already expensive, and the last thing you want is to be caught off-
guard with any last-minute surprises. Set aside an appropriate budget for the
honeymoon.”

Bawah-reserve-medium-res-5887

If you’ve already got a kitchen bulging with appliances and don’t need a traditional gift list, then choosing a honeyfund or registry style gift option to help with the costs of your romantic escape is a great option.  Our Bawah Reserve honeymoon registry fund is the perfect alternative. Simply choose the right package for you, make the reservation and put down the deposit, then your guests can contact us directly to gift any value of your stay. 

 

5. Add Some Elements of Surprise

For a super simple top tip, Cosmopolitan suggests, “The honeymoon is obviously
romantic in itself, but are there ways to surprise your new spouse while you're on
your trip that will keep the love flowing?”

Take your honeymoon to the next level by adding some romantic gestures to your
holiday. If you’ve always wanted to experience staying in an overwater bungalow
then perhaps book a secret room upgrade for your last night at Bawah; or create
memories with a private picnic on a secluded beach.

We have lots of romantic experiences to enhance your stay so speak to your host and devise an exciting surprise of handcrafted intimacy! See our honeymoon packages here.

At the end of the day, the best advice we can give anyone planning a honeymoon is
to enjoy it! The process of researching, choosing the right destination and package,
dreaming and drooling over Instagram, is all a very special part of your wedding
and holiday planning.
