Think relaxing dips in the azure Mediterranean, tapas brunches together and intimate twilight strolls along winding cobblestone streets.

There’s a huge choice of scenic honeymoon destinations in Spain. For lounging on the sands and dreamy starlit boat trips, try a Tenerife spa hotel. If elegant historic surrounds are more your thing, book a luxury suite in one of Girona’s oldest castles. Whether you’re after a honeymoon hideaway, or you want to explore vibrant regions hand-in-hand on a summer’s eve, this captivating country has it all.

Spend your serene Spain honeymoon in the Mallorcan mountains

Escape to Mallorca’s four-star Ca’s Xorc for a blissful post-wedding break. Nestled in the Tramuntana Mountains, this boutique hotel is encircled by tropical flowers and ancient olive trees.

Gaze out over views of the lush Sóller valley from the sun-soaked terrace of your Deluxe Double Room. Call on room service for breakfast in bed, or drift outside to a feast of Serrano ham and creamy local cheeses in the hotel’s manicured gardens.

The infinity pool has vistas over the valley and Sóller Bay. Take a romantic stroll through the estate’s private olive groves, the air scented with the fragrance of bougainvillaeas, and spy the resident sheep and donkeys. Round things off with a soak in the Jacuzzi, then pop the cork on a bottle of champagne from the well-stocked wine cellar.
