The Philippines

Our verdict:

Anywhere that offers hand-made bamboo bicycle tours of its capital’s historic old quarter, treks through rice terraces, island hopping, scuba diving and authentic boutique hotels gets a heart honeymoon emoji in my book. The Philippines is a top choice for adventurous couples looking for a bonding journey of discovery with generous helpings of luxury and without busting the budget.

Inspiring Travel Company says

From the adventurous and mountainous north to the stunning beaches of the south, the Philippines are an inspired honeymoon choice for couples with a sense of discovery. Wherever you travel, a warm, friendly welcome is guaranteed and it’s the perfect destination for island-hopping.

  • Island-hopping
  • Culture & beach
  • Great value

We have selected a wide range of hotels throughout the Philippines, from luxury international brands such as Aman and Shangri-La to more quirky and individual gems – check out El Nido Pangalusian Island, Nay Palad Hideaway and Amun Ini for example.

Whilst we have created some suggested itineraries, our team will create the perfect honeymoon to suit you. Here are just some ideas to inspire you.

Our luxury Manila & Boracay honeymoon combines three nights in The Peninsula in Manila with a week at Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort & Spa. It’s the perfect combo of city and beach – one of the Philippines’ most popular islands, Boracay‘s main attraction is its stunning white sands and party vibe.

Palawan is home to El Nido and Coron, where limestone cliffs rise out of crystal-clear aquamarine water. Repeatedly voted the most beautiful island in the world, it’s a great place to spend a few days. Discover it in the ultimate style on our Aman Experience with a luxury private charter flight to whisk you from Raffles Manila to Amanpulo.

For a more budget-conscious option, combine Manila & Palawan. Our suggested hotel on Palawan, Club Paradise Coron, is a barefoot haven for diving and snorkelling.

Highlights of the Philippines offers a whistle-stop private tour of which takes in bustling Manila, Bohol, Boracay and El Nido. We can tailor the choice of hotels to suit your budget and tastes.

Culture vultures will love Discover the North which is all about this nation’s fascinating cultural heritage. Visit a host of UNESCO World Heritage sites, trek through rice terraces and spend time exploring rural villages virtually untouched by tourism.

We can combine a stay in the Philippines with a number of other destinations such as Singapore, Hong Kong or Dubai – just ask our team and they will create your own exclusive itinerary for you.
