YOUR KIND OF HONEYMOON
Wild in South Africa like Karlie Kloss and Josh Kushner, or regal in the Seychelles like The Clooneys? These honeymoon destinations are poised to set the right mood for newlyweds
You know what they say: A couple who parties together stays together. So, go ahead, have fun.

Where to stay: The Atzaro Hotel
The Atzaro is located on 13 hectares of fragrant orange groves and lush gardens in the heart of Ibiza. Touted as one of the island’s most prestigious hotels, here, the pampering you can expect includes farm-to-fork dining experiences, and a natural spa surrounded by orange groves, gardens and pools that is all about self-care.
Bling it: With a salty breeze in your hair, the setting sun’s kiss on your skin, powdery sand in your toes and your new husband on your arm, what more can a woman ask for? Maybe just one more thing: A shell-motif diamond ring to complete this perfect picture.
Destination: South Africa
Now’s the time to live out your wildest dreams as a married couple. The landscapes, the Big Five, the nature, the wine, the pristine beaches, the World Heritage Sights (eight of them!), and the penguins — this may be the adventure of your life.

Where to stay: Madikwe Game Reserve
Madikwe Game Reserve, about 3.5 hours away by car from Johannesburg/ Pretoria is currently the fifth largest game reserve and one of the lesser- known parks in South Africa. This makes it a hidden- gem as it is regarded as one of the best conservation areas in Africa. More importantly, The Obamas vacationed here. Need we say more?
Bling it: Keep it on-theme with some nature-inspired pieces such as the leaf-motif citrine-and-diamond ring and a floral necklace. If you prefer not to get too wild with your jewellery in the wilderness, a pair of classic studs will do the job of putting just enough glam in your glamping trip.
The Seychelles is hands down one of the most popular honeymoon or anniversary destinations for A-list power couples. Think The Clooneys, The Beckhams, Prince Williams and Kate Middleton, just to name a few.

Where to stay: North Island
This uber luxurious private island is something special. For one, it prides itself as a conservation-oriented, ethically driven company. With only 11 villas, it promises the kind of privacy that royalty like The Clooneys and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge appreciate. As a matter of fact, they have been guests here. So you know you’ll be in some seriously grand company.
Bling it: Dress for the address. Keep it understated but outstanding, simple yet thoughtful, elegant with a dash of audacity. If there is one woman who has mastered the delicate dichotomy of such a fashion sensibility, it’s Amal Clooney. For your choice of jewellery, this is where you go a little more, a little bigger, without being vulgar.
