Luxury lovers, culture vultures and beach babes will adore this honeymoon, which packs a punch in culture, style and sophistication. With the mysteries of South East Asia on their doorstep all the hotels have been carefully chosen as fabulous places to dissipate jet lag and wedding-related stress.
Begin your explorations of the vast Angkor ruins with a visit to the world’s largest single religious monument, the spectacular temple of Angkor Wat, toasting the start of your adventures in South East Asia, and your new life together, with champagne as the sun sets. We know you will be keen on relaxing but in Siem Reap do take some time to marvel at the enigma of Bayon, with its dozens of massive stone faces smiling serenely in every direction. Arrive early to mull over its mysteries in solitude, then head to the north gate of Angkor Thom where you can take to the saddle for a beautiful bicycle tour, passing rice fields, jungle and pretty villages, to the hidden temple of Banteay Thom. Far from roads and virtually untouched by tourism, spy the intricately carved relief depicting the Great Departure of Buddha. Lose yourself amid the tumbledown stone blocks of Ta Prohm, long engulfed by jungle and now irrevocably tangled with tree roots and tendrils.
- Explore remote ancient temples in solitude on a cycle tour of Angkor Wat.
- Sip a champagne sundowner among Cambodia’s most atmospheric Khmer ruins.
- Relax on the sandy beaches of Soneva Kiri.
- At Soneva’s Treepod Dining, be hoisted into the treetops for lunch while the waiter swings between the tables.
Afternoons around Siem Reap can be spent relaxing by the pool or taking boat trips to the floating villages on nearby Tonle Sap Lake, or perhaps you would prefer to meet villagers and visit artisan workshops of the city’s old town, gaining an insight into traditional lifestyles and craft techniques, or just browsing the colourful stalls of the Old Market. It’s a short hop across the river to the living Buddhist temple of Wat Damnak, where orangerobed monks pray as they have for centuries.
Fly to Thailand to finish this adventure in delightful barefoot luxury at Soneva Kiri on Koh Kood island. To get there you can fly in the resort’s own aeroplane, taking in stunning views of the Koh Kut Islands. Here, the oversized villas sit along the beachfront or on the lush hillside and the service is a cut above with a personal host on hand during your entire stay. With exceptional cuisine and great dining options you can even dine in the glimmering treetops at a restaurant built on stilts over a mangrove forest. Finish off a lazy day on the beach with a treatment at the Six Senses Spa. With a ‘no shoes, no news’ policy this is pure post-wedding bliss.
