Wellness Honeymoons

Starting Centered: Wellness-Focused Honeymoons

Whether you want to soak in mineral hot springs, meditate, or simply leave your phone in your suitcase and spend time together, the options are endless for wellness-focused honeymoons.

Wedding planning is stressful. And while weddings themselves are phenomenal, there’s no doubt they can leave you worn out.

Planning a restorative honeymoon focused on true rest, reset, and togetherness is a meaningful way to begin your married life centered and connected.

Wellness travel is booming globally with yoga and meditation retreats, vacations connecting you to nature, rejuvenating spa experiences and so much more.

These trips go beyond a simple spa experience and truly seek to help you let go of the stress and distraction of your everyday lives and really focus on one another and your relationship. Here are just five of the most enticing, mindful vacations we found.

Kerala Ayurveda and Yoga Vacation

We love the tour company Responsible Travel, dedicated to incredible experiences that support local economies and ecosystems. They have so many options for rejuvenating trips but their Kerala Ayurveda and Yoga Vacation in India really caught our eye. This package combines a brief village homestay of two nights, followed by seven days at a stunning, historical Ayurvedic center. Along with guided meditation, breathwork, and yoga you’ll enjoy exploring important local sights, ayurvedic medicine treatments, and more. There is also ample free time to relax, take traditional dance classes, and of course visit the beach.

Wellness Retreat Honeymoon

Shou Sugi Ban House

Even though it is just 90 miles outside of New York City, Shou Sugi Ban House feels so much more removed. Located in the Hamptons, this secluded retreat connects you to nature, yourself, and each other. With a luxury spa, eucalyptus steam room, saunas, yoga, and a full menu of treatment and massage options we cannot imagine a more tranquil place to recharge from your wedding and start your new life together fresh.

Algarve Mindfulness Retreat

Begin your marriage centered and connected through this incredible mindfulness experience with Out of Office, a travel company specializing in luxury, inclusive trips. This retreat in Portugal features personalized, guided lessons in mindfulness and meditation, and massage. Throughout your stay you can add on spa services, visit the stunning beach, relax in the Turkish bath and relaxation pool and much more.

Wellness Honeymoon

Tabacon Thermal Resort and Spa

We cannot picture a more romantic, rejuvenating place to honeymoon than this Costa Rican resort! Designed to embrace and support the incredible nature surrounding it, Tabacon Thermal Resort and Spa features natural hot springs at the base of the Arenal Volcano. Spa treatments are offered in open-air bungalows where you can truly experience the healing elements of the surrounding rain forest. The local food, yoga, and healing benefits of the thermal springs all combine for a restorative, bonding experience.

Treebones Resort

We have two words for you: digital detox. Treebones Resort is intentionally off the grid with limited electricity. You can choose to stay in the yurt village or, if you’re feeling more adventurous, you can camp an open-air nest at the top of a tree. While a rustic honeymoon may sound like roughing it, we absolutely love the mental health benefits of completely disconnecting from the chaos of your daily lives and spending time together in this gorgeous glamp ground. You can book massages, make a reservation for a wild-caught sushi dinner, hike, take part in yoga classes, enjoy time on the beach, and more.

As a lover of all things wedding and a fierce cheerleader for marriage equality, I decided to marry my two passions and create a resource where all couples—gay, straight and lesbian—can be equally represented. Armed with seven years in both print and online lifestyle journalism, I dove headfirst into this passion project in 2013 and Love Inc. was born. I’m inspired every day by the couples that grace our pages, from the can’t-live-without-you grasps to the gentle sweeping away of a happy tear, the love that they so clearly have for each other is intoxicating, and drives me to create the best product possible … while enjoying every second of it.
