Honeymoon Heaven: Top Tips for a Blissful Getaway
With its sun-kissed days and vast coastline, Cyprus is – unsurprisingly – a favourite hot spot amongst newly wed couples.
And we’re happy to say that in being a secluded sanctuary in the warm embrace of Pissouri’s lush, rolling hills – that is, peaceful and private – Columbia Beach Resort is no stranger to welcoming many a honeymooning couple in helping them to celebrate the first steps they take together in life (we’ve even been named one of the world’s best honeymoon destinations of 2018!)
Drawing on the experience we’ve earned to this end, peruse our top tips below of how to make your honeymoon blissfully sweet!
Make an entrance
This isn’t any old holiday. This is when you and your new spouse get to indulge in being treated like royalty. So, plan ahead: contact us beforehand, and we’ll arrange our flexible bespoke honeymoon package to suit you! It even affords for the creation of a candlelit bathroom with flower-embellished tub on the first night of your honeymoon!
Indulge in creature comforts
Yes, this is your time together to do exactly what you like, when you like. If you’re a sun worshipper, enjoy sunbathing without answering to anyone; if you’re a foodie, treat yourself to sampling the cuisine at our variety of restaurants, and if you’re a spa-enthusiast, let your imagination soar as you review the menu of treatments, and don’t hold back.
Of course, indulging in creature comforts doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try something new. Push your limits and surprise yourself by engaging in an activity together that perhaps you or your spouse has long-wanted to try. Jump on a jet ski, go scuba-diving, tour local wineries in becoming a connoisseur, go for a hike in the hills, or try your hand at a sunset bike tour: the list is endless.
Whilst availing yourselves of the unique offerings and facilities your surroundings afford is important, don’t forget to enjoy the quiet moments as well. Cyprus is famed for its siesta time: embrace it! After a leisurely lunch, why not take a nap, and wake up in your luxurious suite, just in time for pre-dinner cocktails?
Get (snap) happy
As vivid as memories may be, getting snap happy is a surefire way to be able to preserve and treasure even the smallest of moments, especially considering the (no doubt) beautiful backdrop of your honeymoon location. At Columbia Beach Resort, we’ve found that the bridge over our 80-metre long, lagoon-style, palm tree-fringed pool is a particular favourite photo spot. Taking photos also affords the opportunity for some post-honeymoon quality time together, either scrolling through the photos in reliving good memories, or spending time making a honeymoon scrapbook to look at for years to come.
