Winter Honeymoon destination -Ideally HOT island!

Hi,

I am planning my honeymoon during the first two weeks of FEB 2015. We would love to ideally go to a tropical WARM-HOT Island. Many places we are seeing are colder during the winter months and/or rainy. We would like the island we go to the be in the 80s or above. Any suggestions?

We would also prefer to stay somewhere private, where we can have our own strip on beach or area were we feel we are alone yet would enjoy being able to still have food prepared for us. Our budget is $10,000.

Thanks for all your help!

How far are you willing to travel?? Got your passports?? Anywhere in the world, as long as it met that criteria? :)

Hello!

We are centered in Boston, MA but would consider going as far as Australia/New Zealand :) - yes we have our passports. However, if we could ideally find a place closer that would be best!

Thanks!

I`ve been to St Maarten-St Martin in February (and other times) and it was nice and HOT then !.....it`s a fabulous island full of all types of beaches, I definitely think you should consider.....there are a huge number of holiday rental accomodations on the island too, if that`s what you want.............should you want more info on the island, just click on the blue link in this post......

Hi Libby,

The Cook Islands is not as far south as New Zealand, but it's closely associated with NZ - same currency and nearly everyone speaks English. Air New Zealand flies direct from LAX to Rarotonga (capital island) once a week. Aitutaki is a short 40 minutes hop on Air Rarotonga. Daily international flights from Rarotonga to Auckland (vice versa).

Aitutaki island north of Rarotonga gets very hot during Feb - 30+C. One of its lagoon islets has private upscale accommodation complete with discreet service including chef. Have a look at Aitutaki, combined with Akaiami - the private island with its Akaiami Paradise Lodge - http://www.akaiamiparadise.com/

One possibility is to combine Aitutaki with the Bay of Islands in New Zealand which has several private luxury lodges overlooking secluded bays and coastline. This northern region of NZ gets quite warm during February.

All the best.

Hi all!

Thank you to everyone for the responses. I am actually Libby's fiance (for some reason her computer/account wasn't posting). We're really excited to look into the places mentioned so far!

Also consider Fiji. February is during the rainy/season. it will be very hot and humid. As the weather is darn right cold/snowy and miserable in Reno we take our chances and go then. Couldn't complain about the weather on any of our six vacations. There was the brief tropical downpours, usually in the afternoon, it sometimes rained at night, and we had one day of solid rain during a two week stay.

Tokoriki, Yasawa Island, LikuLiku the only resort in Fiji with over the water bures are in the drier region of Fiji and tend to get less rain. Royal Davui, Qamea and Matangi, our favorite resort in Fiji are worth a look. All the resorts mentioned are adults only and within your budget.

The following link has pictures of our last vacation to Matangi. Will give you an idea of the beach, snorkeling, bures, resort grounds, etc.

Should you be interested in Fiji, suggest posting on the forum.

Am sure you will have an amazing honeymoon whichever destination you decide on.
