Why consider a March honeymoon? It’s a great time that precedes the spring break rush and follows the winter travelers. March is a more relaxed time for a getaway. There are plenty of places that bloom in March and promise an unforgettable honeymoon. Let’s look at some fabulous March honeymoon destinations.
During March, the temperatures hover in the upper 70s. The days are warm without much rain expected. It’s a great time to be in South Africa.
One of the most luxurious honeymoon hotels in Cape Town is the Twelve Apostles and Spa. Flanked by the Table Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, honeymooners will find themselves surrounded by beauty. The Twelve Apostles and Spa has luxurious rooms and suites with incredible views as well as fine dining and libations at their Leopard Bar. The Azure Restaurant is the 2020 winner of South Africa’s Best Hotel Restaurant.
The spa offers both indoor and outdoor gazebo couples’ treatments and massages.
The Twelve Apostles will help its guests get the most out of their visit, such as preparing a picnic for the beach, suggesting the paths to discover the mountains, and offering an itinerary for the best sights in Cape Town.
Honeymooners can expect Champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries upon their arrival.
Trekking up the fabulous Table Mountain provides one of life’s most breathtaking views. If hiking to the top is not in the cards, a cable car will accomplish the same.
While in Cape Town, a stroll through the Bo Kaap neighborhood is a must. The houses here have a variety of colorful shades. These houses, once the property of former slaves, were painted in bright shades as a sign of freedom.
To experience Cape Town’s delectable cuisine, couples can arrange a walking and eating tour. Stroll through the cobble-stoned streets and learn about the city’s history while savoring its flavors at local cafes.
Cape Town has several lovely beaches for swimming, hiding coves, and vibrant beach bars. Away from the beachfront, couples can stroll the beautiful Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens located at the bottom of Table Mountain. The canopy walk is magnificent, and the gardens are an ideal place for a picnic.
March is Puerto Rico’s least humid time with low rainfall as the flowers bloom into their glory. Opting for a Puerto Rican honeymoon promises lovely beaches and lush tropical rainforests. It is easily accessible from the US, and honeymooners will not need a passport.
The beautiful Condado Vanderbilt Hotel has been called one of the Caribbean’s top resorts. Its 100 suites and 317 rooms allow guests to revel in comfort and luxury with either a city or ocean view. The oceanfront suites enjoy complimentary butler service. The hotel has been named one of Puerto Rico’s top three resorts in Travel and Leisure, and it received the 2023 Wine Spectator Award.
Eight restaurants, bars, and lounges and a Michelin-star chef assure guests of the finest cuisine. The hotel’s spa has special couple’s suites for hydro-sensorial therapy using light, steam, showers, and scents for a distinctive cleansing ritual. The couple’s package ends with champagne and truffles.
Centro de la Bellas Arts Luis Ferres in Old San Juan regularly offers philharmonic concerts, theater, and a few Broadway hits.
San Juan has several fun bars. However, most locals get into the salsa spirit before going to the bars by visiting La Placita de Santurce, San Juan’s outdoor plaza, where everyone simply gathers to dance before visiting a club. Fun, and it gets couples warmed up for a smashing cha chas performance.
The tiny island of Puerto Rico has 300 miles of coastline as well as El Yunque, the sole tropical rainforest in the US. Here guests can exit the jungle and step straight onto the soft sand of a beach.
La Monserrate Beach in Luquillo is a favorite beach for locals and visitors and has a few perks other beaches lack, such as bathrooms, showers, and a picnic area. A camping permit costs $10.00 and a permit that includes water and power is $17.00
The month of March in Lake Como tends to be in their mid-50s. While this is still a bit chilly, the surrounding area quickly becomes overwhelmed by tourists. During March, the temperature is comfortable enough and Lake Como is much more private. And blossoming trees and flowers turn the lake area into a picture postcard.
Lake Como is set by the Italian Alps and is surrounded by beautiful towns, such as Bellagio. The lake is tailor-made for romance. It is quiet, without much glitz, and perfect for a couple that wants to focus on each other.
For couples with a ski honeymoon in Switzerland, beautiful Lake Como is a mere short train ride away to bring you into an entirely different world.
One of the must-do activities by the lake is to take the local ferry and ferry hop to the iconic small towns with grand villas that surround it.
The Hotel Villa Flori is a large, luxurious villa overlooking the lake. It is 19th-century romantic with some modern touches. Much like a modern Marquis would live. The accommodation and restaurant are first-rate.
The villa, the lake, and the gardens make for the ideal wedding venue. The photographic memories here are endless.
While at Lake Como, arrange for a romantic boat tour that provides a different perspective of the villas. Keep an eye out for Villa Del Balbianello, the lake’s finest mansion.
Surrounded by mountains and medieval villas, Lake Como is a wonderful place to explore.
The village of Coatesa by the lake has one of the most majestic waterfalls in the world. It is actually at its best in March. The best view of the fall is from the Romanesque Bridge Ponte della Civera by the Piazza Castello.
Honeymooners must stroll the lovers’ promenade in Varenna that spans from the wharf into the village. There is a footbridge that allows stepping out into the lake for an even better view of the villas and mountains.
Spring begins in March in Sedona, and it’s the most prevalent month for a visit – before the summer heat hits down hard.
Sedona is an outdoorsy place, perfect for hiking and biking, and by the end of the month, explorers will be down to a t-shirt, especially in the afternoons. The rugged landscape here is like few others and makes for a great honeymoon for outdoorsy types.
The annual Sedona Yoga Festival takes place in March, and it probably could only happen in Sedona. The week is filled with forest excursions, yoga sessions, meditation, and other mind-body activities. It’s all about naturalist health for body and soul.
Also, the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade marches through Sedona.
Every suite in the Hilton Sedona at Bell Rock has private balconies and fireplaces and an amazing view of the Red Rock. Meals are served at the Tap and Table, an indoor and outdoor restaurant that ensures guests don’t miss a minute of the surrounding beauty. The scenery continues when enjoying a bite poolside at the Blue Water Café.
Guests can use the hotel as a base when hiking these incredible trails, or they can work with the hotel to arrange unmatched bike, hiking, or jeep tours. In addition, there are wine and trolley tours that are not to be missed. Or remain at the hotel for some sunrise yoga.
To experience the full Sedona magic, arrange for a hot air balloon ride with Red Rock Balloon Adventure and simply glide over the desert and its rocks and canyons. It is a world like no other. Wildland Trekking offers day tours to the Grand Canyon as well as local camping. During March, the wildness of Sedona and the surrounding areas experiences mostly clear, blue skies with a few wisps of clouds.
Marrakech is very comfortable in February, with daytime temperatures hovering in the 70s and slipping to the 50s in the evening. Wonderful weather for exploring the fourth largest city in Morocco with its genuine medieval vibes. The city is so impressive, that famed designer Yves Saint Laurent purchased a home here.
For a romantic getaway, the palatial Mamounia meets all expectations with a blend of oriental and modern. Guests revel in the luxurious suites and rooms, many dining options, and the rooftop pool. The spa offers treatments, couples’ massages, jacuzzi, swimming pools, and saunas. Or simply chill in the relaxation area.
At the Mamounia, guests have the option of a private movie theater, a game room, and a stroll through the spellbinding gardens.
Marrakech is known for its fabulous souks (open-air markets) that sell one-of-a-kind merchandise of every kind and souvenirs. The scent of all the spices is intoxicating. The souks carry everything, and much of the wares may be perfect for establishing a new home.
While in Marrakesh, enjoy a desert day tour and a camel ride before the summer heat has its grip on the landscape. Ride through the Agafay Desert and the Atlas Mountains and explore delightful villages, their food, and their culture while moving through the Kik Plateau on a camel. The end of the tour in the Agafay Desert will provide incredible photo ops.
For honeymooning foodies, the Moroccan Culinary Arts Museum is not to be missed. Once an 18th century palace, it is now all about the pleasures of food. On the first floor, guests can enjoy fantastic Moroccan dining as well as a bar on the terrace.
Moving up to the second floor, a cooking school provides lessons in Moroccan cuisine and its secret spices. A boutique has all the kitchen equipment necessary for a new household.
As one of the Caribbean’s smaller islands, Grenada is large with excitement. March is one of the best times for a Grenada honeymoon as it is one of the driest times. The island’s temperature holds steady in the high 80s throughout the year. St. George’s is the capital and should definitely be visited.
Grenada gets most of its visitors from people escaping the cold temperatures at home, so March can get busy. Everyone loves the exotic black sand beaches and the spices that have given the island its nickname, “Spice Island.” There are several smaller islands, Carriacou and Petite Martinique, with fantastic beaches.
The all-inclusive Sandals Grenada resort matches the beauty of the island. It has been named Grenada’s leading resort, the world’s leading all-inclusive resort, and one of the top resorts in the Caribbean.
Guests have a choice of 10 restaurants, 6 bars with unlimited premium liquor, and snacks anytime. The rooms and suites are sumptuous and come with an ocean view. Some have a private plunge pool, veranda, fully stocked wet bar, and private butler services.
The resort offers certified scuba lessons and equipment, five pools, two whirlpools, watersports, and nightly live entertainment.
Visiting St. George’s is a must. Those painted houses are a charming remnant of colonial times. As a matter of fact, St. George’s is unofficially regarded as the most stunning harbor town in the Caribbean. Most restaurants offer delectable food with an even greater view. Couples should check out the array of spices to be found at Market Square to understand why the island received its nickname.
Grenada’s most beloved beach is the two-mile Grand Anse Beach just outside of St. George’s, with its gentle surf and swaying palm trees. White sand, blue waters, and colorful fishing boats turn the beach into a painting. It is lined with hotels, and some of them will rent snorkeling equipment and arrange for excursions. Vendors rent out loungers and umbrellas.
For some hiking in Grenada, couples can explore the Grand Etang National Park, its lake, and its wildlife within this rainforest. The lake is an old volcano crater that has been filled with blue water for the last 15,000 thousand years. Hiking around the lake takes over an hour, but the views are beyond picturesque. For an even better view, there is the top of Mount Qua Qua, Grenada’s tallest peak.
Perhaps one of the most exotic sights in Grand Etang is the Seven Sisters Waterfalls. Some visitors only check out one or two falls, while others hike through the rainforest to all seven.
March in Bangkok, especially the first two weeks of the month, has low rainfall and temperatures between 77 degrees and 97 degrees. That is fairly hot, but April is the beginning of even hotter weather.
Bangkok is the capital and jewel of Thailand. Its vibrancy is especially felt at night with its active nightlife. Honeymooners can stroll at the Promenade or wander through Lumpini Park, where the locals gather for Tai Chi. Or just join them. Bangkok is the Paris of France and the Venice of Italy – filled with great surprises.
Le Petite Salil is located in Bangkok’s upscale neighborhood amid shopping and the city’s cultural attractions. Its Spanish architecture makes it a standout, with three separate wings that each offer peace and tranquility. The rooms are stylishly decorated to continue that tranquil feeling. The pool has a cocktail bar, and dining at the Café de Salil involves the best of Thai dishes.
The gym and sauna are located conveniently by the pool and will keep couples fit and feeling great.
Couples should book a private dinner on a Chao Phraya River cruise. This will be five-star dining. Or share a drink on Bangkok’s many rooftop bars.
The full-day tour of the Siamese Royal Palace in Ayutthaya Historical Park is where to see a Buddhist monastery, several temples, and Siam’s great architecture. The tour includes hotel pickup and lunch.
Bangkok has a tradition of bathing in a very special style. Onsens are public spas and baths offering a range of therapeutic treatments. One of the favorite onsens is Yunomori Bath – perfect for the couple craving the benefits of thermal treatments.
A soak in the signature bath is detoxifying and healing. The hot mineral bath gets its water directly from the springs. Next, the pressures of a jet bath will clear away any stress or aches and pains.
The open-air garden bath has a Japanese background and guests are encouraged to relax, reflect, and become one with nature. This feeling can be stretched to the individual wooden teak baths.
Steam and sauna continue the healing process, to be followed by a life-affirming massage.
Most couples would agree that life in Bangkok is good. Traditionally, onsen treatments are concluded with a refreshing glass of milk, but a nice cocktail probably serves the same purpose.
