After an exciting but hectic wedding time, it is during the honeymoon that the newly wedded couple can finally relax and spend quality time with each other. While spending time with the love of your life does not really need a special place, a good honeymoon destination plays a major role in starting your new life in a special and positive way. If you are going to tie the knot soon and looking for an interesting honeymoon destination, we present to you Singapore, one of the most popular cities in Southeast Asia. Honeymoon in Singapore is an ideal gift you can give to your partner.
Both a country as well as a city, Singapore has always been a favorite destination for families. Many do not consider Singapore to be a romantic place. However, the city offers several places and activities that are perfect for couples in love. If you are considering a Singapore honeymoon for you and your soon-to-be-spouse, here are some tips that would help you to plan a memorable one.
Romantic Picnic at Gardens by the Bay
A futuristic garden, Gardens by the Bay is an oasis in the middle of a concrete jungle i.e. Singapore city. Resplendent with Supertree Grove (home to super-sized trees), a waterfront, Cloud Forest conservatory with indoor waterfall, Flower Dome conservatory, horticultural theme gardens, etc. the Gardens by the Bay is truly a haven in the city. While you and your partner would have a great time walking in the park, taking in the beautiful sights, a picnic here would definitely enhance your experience. There are several amazing places in the park for a picnic, and the best time would be in the evening when you would be able to witness a gorgeous sunset. With so much marvelous beauty around you, a romantic picnic at the Gardens by the Bay would be the highlight of your honeymoon.
Quality Time at a Luxury Hotel
Although your Singapore honeymoon package includes accommodation at one of the best hotels in Singapore, you must take time to spend quality time with your partner at one of the luxury hotels in Singapore. There is no dearth of luxury hotels in the city. While the interiors of these hotels are nothing less than opulent, the view that they offer would surely make you fall in love with the city. While these luxury hotels are expensive, it is the best way to get your spouse and yourself pampered during your honeymoon. Right from lavish suites and infinity pools to delicious food and relaxation massages, these hotels promise to fulfill every romantic dream of honeymoon couples. Some of the hotels that you can choose in Singapore include The Ritz-Carlton, Hotel Marina Bay Sands, Four Seasons Hotel, The Fullerton Hotel, Naumi Hotel, Capella Singapore, Pan Pacific Singapore, etc. Even if you do not have the budget to spend your entire honeymoon at one of the hotels, even a single day and night would be worth the money you spend.
Romantic Dinner in a Cable Car
Candlelight dinner is considered to be the epitome of romance. There is no dearth of restaurants in Singapore which not only offer the best romantic ambience but also beautiful views and of course delicious food too. However, if you want to experience a unique romantic dinner, the Jewel Box would be the perfect place. The Jewel Box is a sky dining experience where you dine in a cable car when it shuttles above the city. Located in Mount Faber, the cable car ride cum dinner would give you the chance to view the gorgeous city from a bird’s eye view while riding in a private cable car with your partner. If you want to add a bit more fun and romance, you can choose a special cable car which is decorated with beautiful floral arrangements. However, this is a little more expensive than the regular Jewel Box ride. But when as it is your honeymoon, a bit of an extra expense would go a long way in making your partner really special!
Breakfast at Singapore Zoo
Although not the ideal way to spend your honeymoon, this would be perfect for those couples who love nature and animals. The Singapore Zoo is home to 315 species of animals, out of which around 16 of them are threatened. You and your partner would have a great time visiting the inhabitants that are kept in open exhibits that mirror their natural habitats. The animals are separated from the visitors with glass, moats and other hidden barriers. If you are not satisfied with just seeing the animals, you must choose the “Breakfast with an Orangutan” show which would give you the chance to meet and interact with the in-house orangutans while enjoying a mouth-watering breakfast.
Adventure at Singapore Night Safari
If having a candlelight dinner or getting pampered in luxuries is not your idea of romance, perhaps a nightly adventure would be! If you love nature, the Singapore Night Safari is something that would excite you. This nocturnal zoo is an open-air zoo which is home to more than 130 species of animals. Divided into seven geographical zones, the entire place is lit by artificial moonlight so that the inhabitants stay comfortable. While there are trams that can take you on a ride of the park, you can make this trip a romantic one by exploring the place on foot, with your partner. There are several walking trails in the park which would make your tour of the Night Safari really exciting. Apart from the different exhibits, the cultural performances and the Creatures of the Night show are something you should not miss.
Beach Holiday on Sentosa Island
When the city of Singapore becomes too crowded for enjoying a romantic time with your partner, it is time to explore the nearby Sentosa Island. Home to several theme parks, huge hotels, casino, and restaurants, you would be glad to know that this is also an island which has three beaches. Although man-made, these beaches are not only beautiful but give you all the pleasure and satisfaction of being amidst sun and sand. The Siloso Beach is perfect for couples who like adventure and want to indulge in water sports. However, if you want to spend some quiet time with your spouse, the Palawan Beach and the Tanjong Beach are where you should head to. While it is perfect to spend just a day in Sentosa Island with a full day or half day Sentosa Island tour, there is no doubt that you would fall in love with the place and want to stay longer (perhaps for your entire honeymoon). In case you want to spend a night (or a few nights) on Sentosa Island, there are several resorts and hotels on the island that are perfect for a honeymoon.
Apart from these, going on a sunset cruise, watching the light and water show at the Marina Bay Sands, strolling through the Botanical Gardens, going on a Singapore city tour with Flyer etc. are some of the romantic ideas for your honeymoon in Singapore. With the help of the above-given tips, you would definitely be able to plan a Singapore honeymoon that you and your partner would remember for your entire life.
