Here are some of the best honeymoon resorts in South India that you and your lovebug can explore!



Goa is so much more than a party destination. It has a romantic, chilled vibe to it as well. In fact, it has some of the most romantic resorts in South India! If you and your lover aren’t game for partying the night away, you can spend your time chilling on Anjuna Beach, exploring Chapora fort, trying water sports at Baga beach, enjoying blissfulness at Cola beach road and gorging on prawn curry with sausage chilly fry at Martin’s Corner – It doesn’t get better than that. The fastest way to reach Goa is by flight The airport for that is Dabolim International Airport. Even those you’ll manage to save your bucks, travelling by train or car to Goa can be exhausting and time-consuming, nevertheless, save you money. If you’re travelling by train to Goa, you either get off at Madagaon Railway Station and Thivim Railway Station. Here’s where you should stay at in Goa on your honeymoon.

Andaman & Nicobar Islands

Forget the Maldives, Andaman & Nicobar Islands has the dreamiest and best resorts in South India for honeymoon. An ideal destination for your honeymoon and water babies, the good news is that Indians don’t need a visa to visit this tropical paradise! You just book your tickets to Port Blair, pack your bags and go on an adventure with jaanu! If you’re travelling sometime in April and May, you NEED to go snorkelling at North Bay Island or Elephant Beach at Havelock Island. However, Havelock Island has got clearer and cleaner water as compared to North Bay Island – take a call according to the weather. Another thing to witness here is the bioluminescence. Google the term and I’m sure you’d travel here just to see blue glowing water. Remember, bioluminescence only occurs on no moon days, the best person to get in touch with is a local fisherman, scuba diver or a kayaking guide for this.
