Eco-friendly and sustainable places to go on honeymoon

Posted by Melissa Cullen on 3 April 2023

Two rings in the sand A honeymoon should be a truly special holiday that you will never forget. Specialist travel agent, The Honeymoon Fixer, helps couples find their perfect getaway and says they’ve noticed an increase this year in enquiries about eco-friendly and sustainable honeymoons.

In response to the issue of climate change, many hotels and resorts have taken, or are taking, steps to lower their carbon footprint, support the local community and help protect the surrounding environment and wildlife. Initiatives include:

  • Energy conservation
  • Going plastic free
  • Waste management
  • Water conservation
  • Supporting local communities
  • Preserving the surrounding environment
  • Investing in wildlife and other conservation projects
  • Using seasonal, locally grown produce

Most hotels and resorts now have a sustainability page on their website where they outline what they are doing, and it's well worth reading before deciding on a destination.  

Here are a few of The Honeymoon Fixer's favourites properties:

Beach view of Anantara Mauritius

Anantara Mauritius
This fabulous resort connects you with traditional Mauritian culture and is situated in a spectacular tropical location where you can enjoy unique experiences both on land and sea. Explore the nature trails in the forest and snorkel in the marine park. Indulge in rum tasting and wander around tea plantations before returning for delicious Creole meals and rejuvenating activities to balance body and soul.

Beach view of Finolhu

Finolhu, Maldives
This resort is renowned for its two-kilometre white powdery beaches that stretch out across four islands, creating a barefoot chic paradise. Situated on Baa Atoll, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, which is home to over 1,200 different marine species, Finolhu has 125 private villas, four restaurants and array of activities complementing the island’s natural beauty. From the opal waters of the lagoon to the turquoise blue shallows along the shore and the sapphire blue deep beyond, Finolhu is a slice of paradise in three shades of blue.

Birdseye view of Song Saa Private Island Resort

Song Saa Private Island Resort, Cambodia
A wonderful carefree paradise, an intimate escape, crafted with love and inspired by its surroundings, Song Saa Private Island offers luxury, serenity and a deep connection with the environment. 

Home to virgin rainforest, a private beach and tropical reefs, which all add to the serenity of the hotel, it's focused on preserving the island's natural beauty. Watch sunset movies, attend yoga sessions, go on an island safari and explore the surrounding waters.
