Tropical islands aren't everyone's cup of tea, so if you prefer something a little different (but equally memorable and lavish), set your honeymoon radar to the five-star Beau-Rivage.
This grand palace hotel is all old-school marble floors, chandeliers and gilt, and so decadent it's no wonder royalty, heads of state and Hollywood stars return time and time again.
There is world-class skiing just 40 minutes' drive away in resorts such as Villars (a one-day ski pass costs £30) and cosy Swiss-chalet restaurants serving regional specialities in the town of Lausanne.
The hotel's tick-box honeymoon highlights include the spacious Cinq Mondes spa, Michelin-starred food, elegant bathrooms and ginormous beds.
Pack sexy shoes for clicking through reception, an LBD for
intimate dinners, big sunglasses for après-ski chic and a warm wrap
for stargazing on your balcony.
Wow factor: The views of Lake Geneva from the balconies.
Flight time: One hour and 40 minutes.
