Ever dream of getting away from it all? Spending a week or two of blissful peace away from traffic, noise and the general hustle and bustle of everyday life? Then a private honeymoon is an incredible remote destination will be right up your street. And after all of the stress of planning a wedding and being surrounded by family and friends, a break away with your new spouse to somewhere quiet can be the ideal situation for some couples. Here are a few of the destinations you could consider.

Thanda Island
Want to hire your own luxury private island? You can’t get much more secluded than that! Thanda is an island in the Indian Ocean off the east coast of Tanzania. There’s just one luxurious villa on the island, so you really do have the place to yourself. You can spend your honeymoon relaxing on white sandy beaches by turquoise waters. You can spot some incredible wildlife including gentle whale sharks and sea turtles. Or you could enjoy some sporting adventures all in your own private surroundings. Absolute bliss!

Bora Bora
Bora Bora is a small island north-west of Tahiti, located in French Polynesia. Tropical temperatures and stunning scenery make this an amazing place to visit, but is particularly useful for those who want something a little more secluded. There are only a handful of hotels on the island meaning it’s a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle. You could explore the clear waters from a glass bottomed boat to observe the wildlife. You could take a stroll through the gardens or take a hike to Mount Otemanu, an extinct volcano. It’s the perfect secluded and romantic destination.

Alaska
Alaska is the biggest state in the US but is also one of the least populated. This makes it an awesome destination to consider if you’re looking for something remote and off the beaten path. There are various wilderness lodges and resorts that give you all of the privacy in incredible remote Alaskan destinations. With it being so sparsely populated you’re not going to find tons of touristy things to do, but of course, if you’re looking for a destination that’s more secluded this probably won’t bother you anyway. You can go on hikes and view the fjords, icefields and glaciers. You could go fishing, kayaking and on various tours and water tours. If you don’t mind the cold, this could be one for you!

Australian Outback
Looking for something remote AND adventurous? The Australian Outback could be the perfect choice! It might not be considered as the most traditional of honeymoon destinations, but if you’re after an active getaway but want to avoid the crowds, then it could be ideal for you. There are honeymoon lodges available so you still get the same standard of luxury that you’d find at other destinations, but with fewer people.

Does a secluded honeymoon sound like your kind of thing? Which of these destinations would you pick?
