Looking for the best multi destination honeymoons for 2024? With so many incredible places to go on your honeymoon, I totally get if you’re unsure where to choose… If that’s you, I’ve got you!

A multi destination honeymoon (or twin centre / multi centre honeymoon) is the PERFECT way to create an epic getaway that ticks all the right boxes.

As well as giving you the chance to experience two (or more) different places, it’s an amazing opportunity to incorporate all the things you love into just one trip.

I’ve got all the lowdown on the dreamiest places to combine. So, if you’re ready to plan an unforgettable getaway, here are the best multi destination honeymoon ideas for the absolute trip of a lifetime!

1 Tanzania & Zanzibar

Best for: Couples who want safaris + tropical beaches

If you want to go on safari as well as live your best island life, Tanzania and Zanzibar are two of the top spots to combine for your honeymoon.

Tanzania is known for its vast open plains and breathtaking scenery – it’s an amazing place for a once-in-a-lifetime getaway! I recommend starting your honeymoon here on the mainland. You’ll be able to go on an incredible safari before lounging on the best beaches in Zanzibar. 

There are several bucket list safari spots in Tanzania including the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti. If you have your honeymoon around June to August, you might also catch the wildebeest migration which would be absolutely magical!

Lying just off the coast, Zanzibar is a short flight (or ferry) away and is an exotic Indian Ocean paradise. It’s a place that has all the Maldives vibes with powdery sand beaches and turquoise waters.

It’s obviously a brilliant place for relaxing in the sun but you’ll find culture and history in Zanzibar, too. It’s also a destination that’s rustic and romantic so it’s perfect for a newlywed vacation.

Where to stay: One Nature Nyaruswiga Serengeti + Zuri Zanzibar

2 South Africa & Mauritius

Best for: Couples who want adventure + island vibes

There’s so much to see and do in South Africa that it’s an incredible destination on its own. But, if you want a multi centre honeymoon, it’s great to pair with Mauritius.

There are loads of areas that you’ll want to see in South Africa – including Cape Town and the super romantic Cape Winelands. With so much to see and do, a South Africa road trip is a good option for an adventurous African honeymoon.

South Africa is a super safari destination as well. There are so many game reserves where you’ll find luxury lodges that are perfect for a honeymoon.

After experiencing South Africa, Mauritius is a dream destination for resting and relaxing. It’s an island that’s been described as heaven and it’s easy to see why it’s so good for honeymooners!

As well as beautiful white sandy beaches, you’ll find an eco-paradise with nature reserves and tropical forests. It’s also a diverse island, so it’s great if you get itchy feet and want more to see, do and explore.

Where to stay: Amakhala Safari Lodge + Royal Palm Beachcomber

3 Rwanda & Kenya

Best for: Couples who want once-in-a-lifetime wildlife experiences

Africa boasts some of the best wildlife experiences on the planet – and Rwanda and Kenya are no exception. If you’re dreaming of a back-to-nature, adventure-filled honeymoon, these two destinations are a heavenly combination! 

I’d recommend starting this twin centre honeymoon in Rwanda. This landlocked country might not sound like a honeymoon spot but it’s a bucket list, luxury destination that absolutely needs to be on your list!

Known as the land of a thousand hills, a honeymoon to Rwanda is all about nature. It’s a destination where you’ll find rolling hills, lush forests, lakes, volcanoes and sweeping savannah.

One of the big highlights of Rwanda is its mountain gorilla trekking. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience and one that will make your honeymoon extra unforgettable.

After you’ve fallen in love with Rwanda, you can catch a direct flight to Kenya for a more traditional safari honeymoon. 

The Masai Mara is the most famous reserve in Kenya. It’s here that you can stay in a luxury safari lodge, spot the Big 5 and take a hot air balloon above the plains. 

Where to stay: One&Only Gorilla’s Nest + Sala’s Camp

4 Sri Lanka & Maldives

Best for: Couples who want culture, nature + luxury island life

There are so many reasons to love the Maldives. This is a destination that epitomises the honeymoon with its powdery sands and heavenly resorts. It’s also an amazing place to combine with Sri Lanka!

Sri Lanka has so much to offer, making it a gorgeous choice for a honeymoon. From sweeping golden coastlines to lush hills, rich history and delicious food – it’s a destination that has it all.

During a Sri Lankan honeymoon, you’ll be able to visit tea plantations, explore temples and cultural sites, as well as travel on the famous train from Kandy to Ella. 

You can also spot elephants and leopards on a safari in Yala National Park. And (if that’s not enough) Sri Lanka is a fab wellness destination so there’ll be loads of time for beachside yoga and spa treatments.

When you’ve soaked up the beauty of Sri Lanka, the Maldives is the best place to relax and unwind. For your honeymoon here you can stay in a private island resort surrounded by the most pristine beaches. 

If you have the budget, I definitely recommend a luxury overwater villa. It’s an iconic Maldives experience that’s made for a honeymoon!

Where to stay: Roo Mansala Boutique Villas + Soneva Jani

5 Singapore & Indonesia

Best for: Couples who want a city + authentic island paradise

Singapore and Indonesia are amazing places to combine. They’re super close in proximity but each offers something so different.

Singapore is the best place to start your multi trip honeymoon. This vibrant city-state is a brilliant stopover and has a ton to offer. Across the city, you’ll find a blend of old and new with modern skyscrapers as well as traditional temples and mosques.

It’s a destination that’s known as a cultural melting pot with fascinating districts and landmarks to explore. It’s also a luxury destination where you’ll be able to indulge in fine dining, luxury nightlife and a world-class hotel.

After you’ve had your city fix, Indonesia is the next stop. The country’s most popular honeymoon destinations are Bali and the Gili Islands, but I recommend the island of Sumba for this multi destination honeymoon.

Even though you’ll have to transit through Bali, Sumba is SO worth it if you want to experience an authentic, tropical paradise. This is a destination that’s largely untouched by tourism and has the most breathtaking scenery with palm-fringed beaches, jungles and waterfalls.

Sumba is a place with a lot of similarities to Bali. But the best part is it doesn’t have the crowds so it’s ideal if you want a more peaceful and romantic honeymoon!

Where to stay: Raffles Singapore + NIHI Sumba

6 Dubai (UAE) & Jordan

Best for: Couples who want to mix a modern city with adventure travel

Dubai is a common stopover and a great option for a multi destination honeymoon. It’s a city where you’ll find amazing shopping, impressive skyscrapers, beaches and cultural sites.

It also has a big focus on luxury so you’ll find five-star hotels that are perfect for a honeymoon. 

As a destination that’s so well connected, there are loads of places you can combine with Dubai. The Maldives and Sri Lanka are two popular choices but my favourite has to be Jordan!

Jordan is a gorgeous destination that feels like it’s in another world. It’s a country that’s famous for its historical treasures and offers a contrast to the skyline of Dubai. If you want more of an adventuremoon – this is the one for you! 

There are so many magical spots to visit in Jordan. Petra is the most famous but you’ll also want to visit the Wadi Rum desert. This is an incredible setting with canyons and towering red dunes – it’s also where you can sleep under the stars in a cosy desert camp.

If you want more to see and do, you can go snorkelling in the Red Sea in Jordan as well as float in mineral-rich waters over in the Dead Sea, too.

Where to stay: One&Only Royal Mirage Resort Dubai + Palmera Camp Wadi Rum

7 Malaysia & Thailand

Best for: Couples who want traditional culture + incredible beaches

If you’re dreaming of a Southeast Asia honeymoon, Malaysia and Thailand are two of your best options. Each has incredible scenery, fascinating cultural sites and gorgeous islands to explore. 

As neighbouring countries, they’re good to pair together. You could also start your honeymoon in either as both are well connected. 

In Malaysia, you’ll definitely want to visit the capital of Kuala Lumpur. This is an amazing city that’s so interesting to explore. It’s a lively and modern destination, but it still has a rich traditional heritage with markets, temples and cultural sites.

Elsewhere in Malaysia, the Cameron Highlands are breathtaking and so worth a visit. You could also head to Rawa Island or Langkawi for white beaches fringed with palms.

Over in Thailand one of the dreamiest places to take your honeymoon is Krabi. Set on the southwest coast, Krabi has all the jaw-dropping scenery that Thailand is known for with limestone cliffs, lush forests and unspoiled beaches.

It’s also in this region that you’ll find the famous Railay Beach and the Phi Phi Islands, so you’ll have loads to take in. Before heading home, you’ll also want to go north to Bangkok, where you’ll be able to spend a day or two soaking up the bustling city vibes.

Where to stay: The RuMa Hotel and Residences + Rayavadee

8 Bali & Gili Meno (Indonesia)

Best for: Couples who want nature, temples + quiet island vibes

I couldn’t leave Bali off a list of the best multi destination honeymoons. This little island is one of the world’s top travel spots and it has so much for newlyweds to love!

Even though it’s a destination that’s become pretty touristy, Bali makes a wonderful honeymoon. Not only does it have a ton of things to see and do, but you’ll find the most heavenly luxury hotels that seem like they were made for a romantic break.

I recommend visiting Ubud when you’re on honeymoon in Bali. This gorgeous part of the island boasts so much and is known for its temples, jungles, rice fields and waterfalls. 

If you want a more authentic experience, you’ll also want to head to the northern regions of Bali (like Lovina and Munduk), which feel a lot quieter than places in the south.

After you’re done exploring the best of Bali, it’s on to the beautiful Gili Islands, which are easy to reach by boat. Made up of three tiny islands – Gili Trawangan, Gili Air and Gili Meno – the Gilis are all about barefoot beach vibes.

READ MORE: Ultimate Gili Islands Honeymoon Guide + Map

Out of the three islands, Gili Meno is my favourite for honeymooners. It’s the smallest and most romantic of the Gilis. It’s a lot less of a backpacker spot and also has some of the best snorkelling and beaches in the region!

Unlike many other islands in Southeast Asia, there are no motorised vehicles on the Gilis. There also isn’t a ton to do – but in my opinion that’s what makes it so special for a honeymoon!

You’ll be able to take romantic beachside strolls, leisurely bike rides and make the most of the tropical beach scenery. After the busyness of Bali, it’s perfect for relaxing, slowing down and enjoying island life. 

Where to stay: Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan + Gili Meno Escape

9 Lisbon & Madeira (Portugal)

Best for: Couples who want to mix a charming city with nature

There are so many reasons to visit Portugal. This Western European country is filled with beautiful cities, picturesque countryside and gorgeous beaches. It’s no surprise that so many people holiday here!

If you can’t explore all of Portugal on your honeymoon, I recommend at least visiting Lisbon and Madeira. The capital of Lisbon is the best place to start this multi stop honeymoon. It’s a fascinating, culturally rich and romantic city to explore

You can spend your days strolling through the cobblestoned streets of Alfama, visiting historical sites and eating all the pastel de nata! You’ll also be able to take a day trip to Sintra, which is known for its super pretty castles and palaces.

The island of Madeira is a great place to then combine with Lisbon. It’s quick, easy and cheap to fly between the two so it’s perfect for a multi destination honeymoon.

Even though it’s still a part of Portugal, Madeira is nearer to the coast of northwest Africa. It’s a place that’s known as the Hawaii of Europe and one that has the most breathtaking subtropical scenery. 

If you love nature and hiking, you’ll fall in love with Madeira. It’s an incredibly beautiful destination with wild volcanic landscapes. It also feels like an authentic and untouched place so it’s great for a unique honeymoon. 

Where to stay: H10 Duque de Loule + Quinta Jardins do Lago

10 England & Scotland (UK)

Best for: Couples who want cities + fairytale countryside

For a romantic and cosy honeymoon, not many places compare with the UK. If you’re a Brit, exploring England and Scotland is an amazing option for a minimoon. And if you’re travelling from overseas, you’ll get to experience all the magic that the UK has to offer!

There are so many places that you could explore across England and Scotland. If you’ve never visited before, you’ll want to start in London. The English capital is one of the best cities in the world and is great for an urban honeymoon.

From there, two of the most romantic places in England include the Cotswolds and the Lake District where you’ll find idyllic rural scenery, boutique hotels and cosy cottages. 

If you have the time, it’s possible to combine these destinations with London before heading up to Scotland. 

Rail travel is notoriously expensive in the UK so you’ll probably want to rent a car for your journey. (I recommend Discover Cars to find the best prices). This will also give you the freedom to explore several places and make the most of the breathtaking scenery. 

When you get to Scotland, visiting Edinburgh as well as the Highlands is an absolute must. The Scottish Highlands is the prettiest setting with dramatic mountains, lakes and fairytale castles. It’s perfect for a romantic honeymoon.

Where to stay: The Goring, London + The Gleneagles Hotel

11 Italy & Switzerland

Best for: Couples who want romantic cities + breathtaking scenery

Italy is one of my favourite destinations and it’s such a great choice for a honeymoon. It’s not hard to see why it’s so popular – it’s a European honeymoon destination that ticks all the right boxes and has something for everyone to love. 

There are so many romantic places you could explore across the country. From enchanting and ancient cities like Venice and Rome to the cute seaside spots of Cinque Terre and the Amalfi Coast, it’s easy to fall for Italy.

I definitely don’t recommend rushing an Italian honeymoon. This is a destination where you want to slow down and take in all the gems, rather than hurrying from place to place.

With a TON to see and do across the country, a honeymoon focused solely on Italy would be amazing as it is. But, if you want to combine it with another destination, my recommendation is Switzerland.

The absolute best way to see both countries is by travelling overland. You can catch a train between the two, which will take you through the most jaw-dropping alpine scenery. The journey itself is SO worth it and makes this a super romantic multi centre honeymoon!

For the prettiest option, catch the Bernina Express from Tirano in Italy to Chur in Switzerland. This is one of the world’s most scenic train journeys and takes about half a day. From Chur, you could head to Zurich, which is great for a luxury honeymoon.

Where to stay: The St. Regis Venice + Storchen Zürich

12 New Zealand & French Polynesia

Best for: Couples who want unique experiences + relaxation

This multi destination honeymoon combines two of the world’s best bucket list destinations – New Zealand and French Polynesia! 

There aren’t many places that offer the number of epic experiences that New Zealand does. It’s an incredible option for a more adventurous honeymoon and it’s brilliant if you want lots to see and do.

This is a multi destination honeymoon that requires lots of time off – you’ll want at least 3 weeks if you plan to visit both of New Zealand’s islands (which I highly recommend!) 

Across the islands, there’s so much variation. On the North Island, there are white sandy beaches, hot springs and volcanoes. It’s also where you’ll find Hobbiton and the cities of Auckland and Wellington.

The South Island is a lot more remote with mountains, lakes and fjords. It has the most breathtaking natural scenery!

Because New Zealand is a jam-packed destination, it’s the perfect place to combine with French Polynesia where you can relax afterwards in paradise. There are also direct flights from Auckland to Papeete.

French Polynesia is known for being one of the world’s best and most romantic honeymoon destinations. Bora Bora is the famous spot where you’ll find luxury resorts with overwater bungalows. It’s the best place to chill out and soak up the tropical view.

Where to stay: Stoneridge Estate + Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora

13 Australia & Vanuatu

Best for: Couples who want a laid-back adventure + paradise islands

Like New Zealand, Australia is one of those places that you’ll want lots of time off for. Especially if you’re travelling from the UK or Europe, it’s a long flight. And once you’re there, you’ll find so many amazing places to experience and explore!

If you’ve never visited Australia before, there’s tons to do on your honeymoon. Whether that’s driving the Great Ocean Road on a trip from Melbourne to Adelaide, sightseeing in Sydney, heading to the outback or exploring the tropical north, there’s SO much to love,

If you have the time for a longer trip, I recommend a road trip up the East Coast. Some of the best places along the route are Byron Bay, Brisbane, the Whitsundays and Cape Tribulation – there’s lots of variation so it’s great for a unique honeymoon.

From Australia, Vanuatu is an amazing place to end your trip. This South Pacific nation has all the paradise vibes with pristine islands, tropical rainforests, volcanos and coral reefs. It’s a dreamy and romantic setting that feels untouched.

As a far-flung and remote place, Vanuatu is usually difficult to get to. But, if you’re already in Australia, there are direct flights from Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. It definitely makes sense to visit while you’re already down under!

Where to stay: The Calile Hotel + Tamanu on the Beach

14 Los Angeles (USA) & Fiji

Best for: Couples who want a trendy city + tropical islands

If you’re travelling from the UK or Europe, Fiji is about as remote, tropical and far-flung as it gets. It’s a proper paradise destination and one of the very best places for an island honeymoon. 

Because it’s so far away, it’s a good idea to combine Fiji with another destination. I stopped over in Los Angeles on my way to Fiji and definitely recommend it. Not only do you get to break up the journey, but you get the best of both worlds with city and island vibes!

Los Angeles is a cool city getaway that’s fab for a honeymoon. There are loads of iconic landmarks and things to do – from exploring Beverly Hills and hiking in Griffith Park to relaxing at Venice Beach.

You’ll also find a brilliant choice of coffee shops, restaurants and hotels that are perfect for a luxury honeymoon.

After Los Angeles, Fiji is an idyllic place to slow down. The islands are some of the best in the world with sugar sand beaches, swaying palms and the clearest waters for snorkelling.

If all you want to do is relax, you’ll find the dreamiest luxury resorts in the Mamanuca Islands where you can rest, unwind and take in the scenery. Otherwise, if you want more adventure, island hopping in Fiji is an amazing experience.

Where to stay: Pendry West Hollywood + Likuliku Lagoon Resort

15 Iceland & New York (USA)

Best for: Couples who want to combine nature + a cool city break

If you want a contrast of places, Iceland and New York make an amazing multi destination honeymoon. If you’re travelling from Europe, Iceland’s Reykjavik is the best place to start – it’s an ideal stopover before crossing the Atlantic. 

If you love adventure, you probably won’t need a lot of convincing to go to Iceland! This gorgeous country is so unique with diverse landscapes and natural scenery.

It’s a top eco destination where you’ll find everything from waterfalls and geysers to the sparkling northern lights. If you have the time for a longer trip, you could hire a car (or take a tour) to explore the Golden Circle and further afield.

After Iceland, New York is the perfect opposite to all the natural wonders. Because they’re so different, combining these two destinations is one of the best ways to experience a lot, all in a single trip!

As such an iconic city, there’s so much to fill your time in NYC. It’s also an amazing city for splashing out on luxury. You’ll find incredible restaurants, bars and five-star hotels that are perfect for an extra-special honeymoon.

Where to stay: The Retreat at Blue Lagoon Iceland + The Greenwich Hotel
