Weddings are a great time to celebrate your love with your friends and family, but the romance truly begins when it’s just the two of you.
This is why your honeymoon is the most romantic trip you’ll ever embark on. It’s just you and your new husband, basking in that newlywed bliss, enjoying each other’s company in your own world.
It’s so important to get the location right — you want to be able to get the most out of this once in a life time trip, but you also want somewhere relaxing and intimate, where you can really feel like you’re the only people in the world.
Orpheus Island is the perfect place for this. Orpheus Island is set in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, meaning you don’t even have to travel that far to experience paradise. The idyllic retreat is ideal for those who crave a honeymoon crammed full of activities and exploration or wish for a more intimate and private hideaway.
The fringing reef surrounding Orpheus is one of the Great Barrier Reef’s most spectacular and diverse and unlike other island resorts, guests aren’t required to travel offshore to experience it. It’s not uncommon for guests to swim alongside Green Turtles, Manta Rays and Humpback Whales — a dream if you want a unique experience.
No more than 34 guests stay on the island at any one time, guaranteeing a sense of privacy and seclusion you may struggle to find in a bustling tourist resort. Fill your days with trips to the culturally rich surrounding areas, led by indigenous tour guides, fishing trips where you’ll have the chance to grill the day’s catch on an open fire, or for the ultimate in luxurious romance, take a dinghy and chef-prepared gourmet picnic hamper and discover the many pristine bays and reefs that fringe Orpheus.
Orpheus is a home away from home, combining tropical and lush surroundings with essentials such as Bose iPod docks, Daintree Essentials products and crisp white linen. You’ll have the choice between two dining experiences, a restaurant or an alfresco-style eating area, each with a daily changing menu.
The island’s signature experience and perfect honeymoon dining experience is ‘Dining with the Tides’ which allows guests to enjoy an intimate, romantic dinner for two on the pier under a starlit canopy. This is the perfect chance to reflect on your wedding, take in your surroundings and create a lasting memory with your new husband.
Orpheus is an ideal destination for newlyweds seeking a unique adventure and memorable experiences in this romantic escape. To find out more, visit orpheus.com.au
