Where to begin ~
Finding the perfect everything is hard. When you have said yes to the big question, suddenly you are expected to answer a multitude of questions. After the stress of the venue hunt, dress buying, cake tasting, along with the big day, the honeymoon should be time when the two of you re-connect and enjoy the first days of wedded bliss. Nothing says relaxed than a Spa honeymoon, except a spa honeymoon in Europe.
Below are a couple of our favorites from Destination Weddings and Honeymoon Planners.
Montecatini Terme, Italy
Live it up like the noble Medici at Montecatini Terme. The royal family once owned this chic spa retreat, which has been luring writers, composers, and royals since 1773. You may have missed Montecatini Terme’s early 20th-century golden era—when everyone who’s anyone hung out here for the feel-good water vibes—but the legacy lives on in the town’s elegant colonnades, fresco-covered halls, travertine-columned galleries and gorgeous gardens with rare plants. Check out the 15th-century Il Tettuccio with its stunning loggia at the edge of the pool and a façade featuring Carrara marble statues. Don’t miss the thermal mud baths and the full range of balneo-therapy and hydroponic treatments.
Sveti Martin na Muri, Croatia
You’d never know to look for healing waters in this pastoral corner of northernmost Croatia, but the town of Sveti Martin na Muri has had a tradition of spa tourism since 1911. The first wooden swimming pool was built here in 1936; today the upscale Life Class, Terme Sveti Martin has a contemporary pool complex called Temple of Life inspired by the anthroposophical elements of Rudolf Steiner (of the Waldorf education fame), who was born in a nearby village. The thermal water of Sveti Martin na Muri is said to be curative because it comes from the Pannonian Sea, a former sea basin that existed more than 10 million years ago.
