Honeymoon Dreams: Bahamas & Miami
The wedding of your dreams doesn’t end after the reception, here at Honeymoon Dreams we want to ensure you’re honeymoon is an extension of your big day.

A combination of beach and city with one of Honeymoon Dreams tailor-made multi-centre itineraries may be the perfect compromise.
Placed at the tip of America, the vibrant city of Miami offers chic hotels, world-renowned restaurants and fabulous beaches. A 9 hour flight from the UK will take you into Miami International airport, the gateway to this cosmopolitan metropolis.

Honeymoon Dreams suggests the elegant Fontainebleau Miami Beach; this exquisite resort exudes modern luxury and was the Miami playground of Frank Sinatra and The Rat Pack back in the day. The seafront location offer guests a unique mix of Miami Beach glamour and laid-back sophistication.
A recent renovation has turned the already luxurious hotel into a glamorous city retreat, frequented by celebrities and the who’s who of Miami. Check into an ocean view, balcony room and take in the magnificent views of Miami Beach.
Miami is renowned for fantastic restaurants, with one of the best being at the Fontainebleau; Visit the award-winning Hakkassan, sister to Michelin starred Hakkassan in London. If celebrating in style and partying the night away suits you and your newly wed, visit Miami Beach nightclub LIV serving long-drinks and a vibrant atmosphere.
Exploring the dynamic City of Miami lets you take in a world of culture and traditions like no other. Visit the urban South Beach area and discover the unique Art-Deco district offering a mixture of architecture, boutique stores, restaurants and a truly laid back atmosphere. After you have explored South Beach, move along to Bal Harbour to explore the high-end shops and enjoy lunch in one of the many luxurious restaurants.
After three days discovering the sights and sounds of Miami; its time to hop on an hour-long flight to The Bahamas and a four night stay at adult’s only hotel, The Cove (part of the magnificent Atlantis Resort). The Ocean Suites, offering mesmerizing views over the Caribbean Sea and one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
Set on Paradise Island, The Cove hotel is nestled amongst tropical gardens and enveloped by spectacular views. The centre of this magnificent resort is a mecca of restaurants, marine life and serene beaches. Immerse yourself in a vast array of cuisines and dining settings.
Enjoy an enchanting meal for two at world-renowned Japanese restaurant Nobu or visit Cafe Martinique for a taste of traditional French Brasserie style cooking. With over 20 restaurants to choose from, no dining experience throughout your stay will be the same.
Wake-up and watch the sunshine glisten over the endless whilst planning the day’s activities, four days at The Cove allows for the perfect combination of adventure and rejuvenation. The Atlantis is home to the world’s largest open-air marine habitat, housing more than 50,000 marine animals; offering guests out of this world interacting experiences.
Dolphin Cay is a fourteen acre marine habitat that gives guests the opportunity to swim and interact with the gentle mammals. This pre-bookable experience is truly unforgettable.

This elegant retreat, designed specifically for adults is ideal when all you want to do is nothing.
