Honeymoon

Now what’s the first thing that pops in your mind when you hear the word “Honeymoon”?
-Oodles of love making?
-Beaches (perhaps)?
Good (let’s say expensive) Lingerie?
-A Super chilled out vacay?

I personally feel Honeymoon is one of the most important time in a couple’s life which should be looked at as an ‘investment’.  Yes; an investment that is meant to give fruitful returns. Now I am not trying to build any kind of pressure here ‘cos everybody is free to plan their honeymoon the way they wish … but… it HAS to be very well thought of!

Why?

 
‘Cos this is the time a couple will make some fantastic rib-tickling, nerve-wrecking sort of memories, gauge one another, understand the other person’s preferences and so much more. I truly feel a couple must plan a honeymoon around the top 3 things that matter to them the most.
For us, that was – Property (Hotel/Resort that offers beyond excellent service), Food and of course, Adrenaline-Filled Adventures! The fact that we knew we were not ready to compromise on the aforementioned, allowed us to make the most out of our holiday.
The reason, I am talking about this is that, many couples fail to prioritise their desires and go for what might seem cool to the world or “sound romantic” when said out loud. These kind of couples end up either ‘not making enough memories’ or ‘not discovering their true selves’ during their Honeymoon.
Anyway, I also believe that every holiday one takes with their partner should not be treated anything less than a Honeymoon, so the next time you book a holiday, make sure it gravitates around what you two as individuals AND as a couple really REALLY prefer.

So without further ado, here are some of the best moments from what I believe is the best holiday I have ever taken!

‘cos a breakfast buffet is passé? Viceroy doesn’t believe in having a breakfast buffet. Their Michelin Star Chef wants to serve fresh, hot and art-like food to every single guest on board!

It’s a shame if you return from Bali without trying the famous “Bali Swing”! It totally made me feel like a (fully-grown) baby!

The Michelin Star chef at Cascades (the only restaurant at Viceroy) makes food like art. This is probably THE BEST MEAL I have had so far! THE BESTESTESTEST!
This is the kind of food that makes you feel like #royalty !

A luxury resort that HAS IT ALL and gives some major #bathroom goals. I have never seen a resort maintaining such high standards and providing such impeccable service to its guests! I felt like I died and went straight to heaven!

Need I say more??? Oh and our bathroom also came with shower cabinet, an outdoor shower area (if you can spot in this picture), a massage bed (which you can’t see in this)… all of this making only 1/5th of our gorgeous villa!

When in Nusa Dua, please don’t forget to
a) walk on the sea bed- feed the fish, touch the corals and lounge around under water.
b) parasail with your sweetheart

Audemars Piguet , the fabulously fabulous Swiss watchmaker gifted this floral clock (a beautiful botanical artistry) to Gardens by the Bay on the occasion of Singapore ‘s 50th anniversary.
With the clock hands guided by the GPS technology, this clock features the signature octagonal bezel and hexagonal screws of its Royal Oak Collection.
