Luxury Mini-moons

The Mini-moon. These little gems didn’t even exist a few years ago and now they’re a bona fide holiday… why, they’ve even made it into the Oxford English Dictionary.

Like our Big Short Breaks the mini-moon offers maximum experience for minimal time away; the perfect way to celebrate your nuptials if you're short on time. Whether you want just a couple of days on the beach to relax, a full-on action-packed adventure or a cultural city break, we're on hand to cater to your every whim, so you get the maximum experience from your mini-moon, with the possibility for a fuller fledged version at some time in the future, obviously.

We offer a bespoke service which includes your own dedicated honeymoon planner who is happy to visit you at your home or office laden with maps, insight and in-depth knowledge, and will work with you for as long as it takes to perfect your dream honeymoon.

Muscat

The Omani capital is home to some of the most luxurious hotels in the Middle East.

Aerial View of Cape Town

Cape Town

Surely the ultimate 'winter sun' city break from the UK; endless appeal, and minimal time difference.

Swedish Lapland

Swedish Lapland

The Northern Lights, dog-sledding and ice-driving are just snippets of what is on offer in Swedish Lapland.

Colourful Balconies

Porto & the Douro Valley

The Brits have long had a penchant for port, but the vineyards where the fortified wine is created and the eponymous city of Porto are, in themselves, a delight.

A tiny country with big appeal; over 100 beaches, pristine countryside, and a destination that's definitely one to watch.

Croatian coast scenery

Combine beautiful Mediterranean coastline with cosmopolitan and lively cities on your Dalmatian Coast holiday.

Galata Tower at Dusk

Istanbul

Just three and a half hours from the UK, this atmospheric 'East meets West' city is a perfect destination for a long weekend.

Santorini

Santorini

Crescent-shaped Santorini is perhaps the most famous Greek island, and physically one of the most spectacular islands in the world, with its giant sea-filled caldera created by an ancient volcanic eruption.

New York

New York

Does it need an introduction? Go shopping, go partying, stay in an uber cool urban hotel, and enjoy your bite out of the Big Apple.

The Azure Window in Gozo

Gozo

Malta's shy little sister, Gozo is a real favourite of ours because of its laid-back atmosphere, great beaches, and relative anonymity.

What to do

Dog Sledding in Snow

Dog Sledding in Swedish Lapland

Dog-sledding through the snowbound forests and mountains of Swedish Lapland will leave even the hardiest ‘been there, done that’ traveller with an indelible memory.

Petra

Petra

Petra was carved from pink sandstone cliffs by the Nabataeans some two millennia ago, and left undisturbed until its rediscovery in 1812.

Northern Lights

Northern Lights

Swedish Lapland is one of the best places in the world to see the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis, the extraordinary natural light show that occurs in the depths of winter.

Sea Kayaking the Dalmatian Coast

The Elaphiti Islands, forming part of the Dalmatian Coast, run in a chain parallel to the mainland and form the perfect aquatic playground for exploration by sea kayak.

Il Salviatino hotel, luxury hotel in Florence, Italy

Il Salviatino

Escape the hustle and bustle of Florence and opt for a 15th century villa just outside the city. Il Salviatino has commanding views over Florence, dominated by the cathedral dome, and looking east there is nothing but uninterrupted Tuscan countryside.

The traditional Cape Dutch farmstead of Babylonstoren is slap bang in the middle of the Cape Winelands, within easy reach of Franschhoek, Paarl and Stellenbosch and - of course - the world famous vineyards.
