Itinerary details

Las Vegas

3 nightsLAS VEGAS

Your honeymoon adventure begins in the unique wonderland that is Las Vegas, an unashamedly bold and brash technicolour playground of glitzy hotels, bars, and, of course, casinos. The casinos on the Strip are great fun, and we recommend enjoying a Cirque du Soleil show one evening, where dazzling acrobats leap and twirl to music during an amazing theatrical performance. It’s also well worth making an excursion to the Grand Canyon, to enjoy a scenic helicopter flight over the rim and above the Colorado River - an unforgettable honeymoon experience.

Your hotel is the swish Delano, which sits right on the iconic Strip, and after you've had your fill of Vegas life, retreat to the pool at the exclusive Beach Club, enjoy a first-class meal at the Rivea restaurant and head to the elegant Skyfall Lounge for a martini

2 nightsPALM SPRINGS

After picking up your car in Las Vegas, you'll begin your self-drive adventure by crossing the desert into California on your way to Palm Springs, nestled in the Coachella Valley. In the 1950s and 60s, this bohemian enclave was a playground for the likes of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Elvis, and an irresistible atmosphere of vintage glamour still pervades here. A trip on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway – the largest rotating tramway in the world – is well worth it for the sweeping views over the Chino Valley, while culture vultures should pay a visit to the Palm Springs Art Museum, which is home to paintings, sculpture and photography spanning the last century.

Your hotel, The Parker, is a stylish retreat, set in beautiful landscaped gardens, where you can relax in a hammock in the balmy evenings. For something more active, enjoy a hike in the otherworldly landscapes of the Mojave Desert.

2 nightsLOS ANGELES

Departing Palm Springs, continue your journey to the coast and the sprawling city of Los Angeles, where you'll check in to The London in West Hollywood, just off Sunset Boulevard. Home to great nightlife, sweeping palm-fringed beaches, countless celebrities, and more cultural attractions than you can shake a stick at, the City of Angels is truly cinematic in its scope. Shop on Rodeo Drive, which is just a few blocks away, visit world-class museums and galleries, see the stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and head to Santa Monica to rollerblade along the beachwalk with the locals and stroll along the pier at sunset. Back at your hotel, enjoy some premium relaxation with a cocktail or two by the rooftop pool, looking out over LA's iconic skyline.

5 nightsLAGUNA BEACH

The final stop on your luxury honeymoon is Laguna Beach, which lies around 1.5 hours down the coast from Los Angeles. Beautiful and glitzy, it is known for its fantastic beaches. Main Beach is best for swimming and is a favourite of volleyball players, but we suggest heading to the scenic Treasure Island Beach for a romantic stroll along the sand. 

Stay at Casa Laguna Hotel & Spa, a beautiful Mission-style hotel which perches on the coast overlooking the sea, and reflects the area's bohemian, quirky vibe. As well as enjoying panoramic views over the Pacific Ocean from your room, you can indulge in the excellent spa, take a dip in the pool nestled amongst the palm trees, or soak up the Californian sun on the terrace.
