Organising the perfect honeymoon for someone who does precisely that for a living was no doubt a daunting thought for my now husband... He liked the idea of it being a surprise for me and I did too (with, I will admit, an element of apprehension!). I was handed the itinerary at the airport and not a moment before. All I had been told at that point was what to pack and roughly how long we were going for.
Bali!! A large part of the honeymoon was spent relaxing in the sun - phew, my husband does know how happy this makes me! Amankila on the east coast of Bali was our first stop - our private villa with pool was the perfect haven in which to relax and unwind post wedding. After Amankila we headed to the Como Shambhala Estate in Ubud - a wellness retreat which just happened to win Conde Nast's best spa in the world award whilst we were there. From there we went on to the Oberoi Lombok for utter relaxation before ending with a couple of days in Singapore.
Getting Out and About
Whilst I would be a very happy bunny lying in the sun for days, we were keen to get out and about explore Indonesia. We biked through rice paddies and local villages with beaming children waving at us, we experienced a local market and toured a coconut plantation, and snorkelled with turtles off the white sandy beaches of the Gili Islands.
That’s the Life
We were exceptionally well looked after everywhere we went, and we ate extremely well and from pretty much every cuisine that exists. The staff could not have been more helpful and even came to clean our sunglasses while we relaxed on our sunbeds! My husband did well, but without a doubt, it was the expertise of Rosie Kennedy that made our honeymoon the best holiday of our lives and I am forever indebted to both of them.
