Kuoni honeymoon hotlist 2020

Maldives is the favourite honeymoon destination for 2020, finds Kuoni

The Maldives tops the list of favourite honeymoon destinations for 2020, closely followed by Mauritius, Sri Lanka, Bali and Thailand, according to a report from Kuoni.

The good news is that 82% of honeymoons booked were the help of a travel agent as they can advise on the latest luxury resorts, multi-centre itineraries and upgrade options.

Other destinations in the honeymoon bestsellers list include Seychelles, South Africa, Tanzania, USA and Italy.

Average spend has gone up over the past three years with couples now investing an average of £7,695 on their dream trip, compared to around £6,000 in 2017.

The operator has seen the age of honeymooners rise over the past decade, with more couples in their mid to late thirties tying the knot. The company's honeymoon experts report that they are booking more couples in their 40s, 50s and 60s getting married for the second time.

It's not unusual now for honeymoon bookings to include children – there has been a steady rise in honeymoon bookings which include either infants, toddlers or teenage children as couples start their family first or get married for the second time.

Couples are increasingly pushing the boat out on their honeymoon with romantic experiences, with some of the most requested being a barbecue on a deserted island in the Maldives, dining by a candlelit waterfall in Thailand, sharing a double bed in the sky with Qatar Airways QSuite and a hot air balloon flight over the Maasai Mara in Kenya.

Outdoor bathrooms, luxury tree-houses and spa treatments with a view are also frequently requested, according to Kuoni's honeymoon experts.

Top 10 honeymoon destinations are: Maldives, Mauritius, Sri Lanka, Bali, Thailand, Seychelles, South Africa, Tanzania, USA and Italy.
