My Vacation Lady has been a top rated honeymoon specialist on both Wedding Wire and the Knot for a long time. We maintain our top rating by talking to our honeymoon couples to really see what they envision for their honeymoon and the best destination that matches their dreams.
We recently spoke to an engaged couple getting married in March 2024. Our in-depth honeymoon consultation is designed completely around getting to know them and learn about their honeymoon dreams.
So when Kate and Matt first reached out to us, their idea of their dream honeymoon was “Bora Bora is where we would like to go. We did some research in terms of stay and flights. We spoke with our friends who went to Bora Bora for their honeymoon and recommended using you to help with planning our honeymoon.”
Great, we love French Polynesia for some of our clients but let’s see if it was right for Kate and Matt.
During the consultation, this is what I found out:
Some of the experiences you might be interested in are:
- Stand up paddleboarding
- Jet skiing
- Sunset cruise
- ATV tour
- Hiking- 2-3 hours- more level
- Biking- without cars around
- Horseback riding
- White water rafting
- Seeing waterfalls
- Helicopter tour
- Culture- yes to 1 or 2 museums, yes to historical sites of significance
- Food is very important- you like to try local food,
- Visit to winery, coffee plantation, cooking class, food tour
- Luau type cultural dinner dance
- Couples massage
After reviewing what Matt and Kate really wanted to do, we also recommended Fiji as an alternative that might offer them more of some of the active experiences they were looking for. We also brought up Bali as another alternative.
Can you guess what they decided on when they saw some sample itineraries that we provided?
Kate and Matt decided on Bali for their honeymoon and we think they’ll love it. It will have a great combination of beach and relaxation and activities. They can hike up Mount Batur, they can bike along rice paddies, they can take a cooking class, take an ATV tour, see waterfalls and see historical and cultural sites. Most importantly, they can explore local restaurants which was really important to them.
Yes, you can look at pretty pictures of over water bungalows and say that you want to stay in one of them. You can ask your friends where they stayed and decide that you want to go there too.
But if you want the type of consultation and services that My Vacation Lady can offer, reach out to us. We’ll listen to you and help you realize that pretty pictures and other people may not match your honeymoon dreams.
