It's the island experience you've always dreamed of. If you want to follow in the footsteps of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – and who wouldn't? – you might consider heading to idyllic Seychelles for your honeymoon or romantic getaway.

Why are honeymoons here so magical? Well, think scores of white sand, glistening turquoise ocean, endless wide open sunny sky - and that's just the entrée! 

Here's a little bit more about this island nation and just why it's so special. 

Enjoy a beautiful romantic experience at the Cook Islands

If you are in search of the perfect Pacific island paradise for a couples' trip away, don't look past the Cook Islands.

This collection of stunning islets is ideal for honeymoons or simply for a romantic getaway. After all, who needs an occasion to celebrate with their loved one in one of the most beautiful parts of the world?

Swim, snorkel, dive, lounge by a beautiful pool or spend time exploring the lush forest. While away your afternoons lying on the beach with a good book, and savour evenings sipping on cocktails at your hotel bar. All, of course, with the one you love. It's utopia just for couples.

Check out the holiday destination Koh Samui (Lamai Beach-Dreamstime)

Koh Samui is one of those incredibly special destinations that just has romance written all over it.

From its beautiful white-sand beaches and warm turquoise water to its gorgeous jungles, gardens and luxury accommodation, the island really has it all.

Whether you're on a honeymoon or a romantic trip just for the sake of it, it's certain Koh Samui will make your holiday hopes and dreams come true. Even better, a journey here doesn't have to break the bank or take a whole lot of travel time - it's only an 80 minute flight from Bangkok, yet it feels like it's a whole world away.

Many people dream of travelling to a tropical destination like Fiji, with its endless beaches of glowing white sand, pristine ocean and exotic atmosphere making it extra special.

Why not take the plunge and go? You and your loved one can enjoy luxury accommodation, endless strawberry daiquiris and all the warm ocean water you can imagine.

Pick a luxurious resort to stay at, complete with pampering spa facilities, stylish pool area and top-quality bars and restaurants.  Your room is bound to be gorgeous, with heavenly beds, rejuvenating showers and hopefully a fully-stocked minibar!

Bali has long been known as a romantic location for couples. It's perfect for honeymoons, luxury resorts and the kind of dreamy scenery you only read about it books and see in movies. However, the great thing is that you can visit this idyllic location in real life, side-by-side with your loved one.
