When you’re planning your honeymoon, everyone immediately thinks of the destination – somewhere beautiful and exotic.  But what about those of us who don’t desire to travel far and want to stay near? Honeymoons aren’t always about where we go, but what we do when we get there.













For those of us looking forward to doing all the things on our honeymoon, Groupon has us covered!  These are some of our most favorite and budget-friendly activities that can be found at most honeymoon destinations.

Wine Tasting

Do you love sampling something new?  Groupon’s Wine Tasting deals and coupons will let you search by location to find great wine packages.  Some include an appetizer, some allow you to take home a bottle or two and all of them give you a taste.  Maybe wine isn’t your thing, that’s okay!  Groupon has you covered with other spirit tastings such as great beer flight deals.


Do you love exploring?  You could spend a romantic night on a dinner cruise, enjoy a day on the water during a dolphin excursion, soar through the sky during helicopter flying lessons, or enjoy a nice historic tour.  On Groupon’s Sightseeing & Tours section, you’ll find all of this and more, depending on which destination your heart takes you.


Relaxation – something I think we can all agree on.  What better way to kick off your marriage than with a massage?  And I’m not referring to just any massage.  Groupon’s Local Massage section offers every massage category you could imagine, from deep tissue, to full body, to reflexology and the popular honeymoon choice – couples’ massage.

Live Events

Do you love to be a part of the action?  Groupon’s Live Events section offers the best entertainment for any area you visit.  From concerts or comedy shows, to sporting events and more, you and your beau are sure to find something fun and excitement.

Not sure where to stay?  Your honeymoon plans could take you to South Lake Tahoe, CA for wine tasting, San Juan, Puerto Rico for sightseeing, Klamath Falls, OR for a massage or Miami Beach, FL for entertainment, you’ll find the perfect (and affordable) honeymoon activities to make all your newlywed memories come true.

If you’re like most honeymooners, you’re dying to be whisked away on an exotic island getaway after your wedding. In other words: Tropical. Island. Paradise.

Lucky for you you, we’ve discovered the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa  — the perfect newlywed oasis.  Grab your honey now and read on together, you’ll booking before you reach the end of this post!

Stay in Luxury

At the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa, you’ll stay in a luxury over-water villa (a.k.a. your own romantic island utopia), combining contemporary style and traditional Polynesian materials with picture windows, king-size beds and spacious living areas. You and your beloved will be able to literally step off the deck of your over-water villa into the warm, tranquil ocean below.

Experience it All

Enjoy scuba diving, a sunset cruise, the pristine beaches, and (my favorite) the award-winning spa.  Indulge in the first Thalassotherapy center in the South Pacific, where seawater is incorporated into the treatments.  Water drawn from the depths of the ocean is used for soaking and mudbaths to improve health and well-being. While views of the lagoon and its tropical wildlife through the glass bottom floor massage rooms promotes relaxation.

Eat Well

Indulge in delicious cuisine and cocktails at three on-site restaurants and two bars.  The Reef Restaurant is an excellent breakfast or dinner choice featuring traditional French cuisine.  The Sands Restaurant is a beachfront lunch or dinner restaurant boosting the best island life experience with its global menu options and live music.  Le Corail Restaurant is the most exclusive, romantic gourmet dinner spot in Bora Bora. At the Bubbles Bar, best known for its 2-for-1 happy hour every evening from 5-6 pm, you’ll experience a comforting and cozy spot to relax with light snacks and exotic cocktails in the evening.  Lastly, at the South Beach Bar you’ll enjoy one of their famous mai-tais or mojitos while you lounge poolside under an umbrella.
