The 6 Most Popular Honeymoon Destinations Around the World

So you’ve booked the location and set the date for where you’ll get married. How about that honeymoon? You might want to consider booking a pair of tickets to Hawaii.

The Moana Surfrider, a Westin Resort & Spa, on Waikiki Beach, in Hawaii, generated the most social posts when it comes to honeymoons, according to the first Marriott Road to Romance Trends Report, which analyzed more than 5 million publicly tagged social media posts on Twitter and Instagram from January to August 2017.

The study, conducted by M Live, Marriott International’s social media command center, gathered insights about the most talked about weddings, honeymoons and bachelor/bachelorette parties on Twitter and Instagram at more than 6,000 Marriott properties worldwide.

In fact, around 85% of all honeymoons talked about in the U.S. occurred in Hawaii, as well as California and Florida, according to the study.

The most buzzed about honeymoon spot in California was Marriott’s Timber Lodge, in South Lake Tahoe; while the W South Beach, was the most popular hotel in Florida.

More than half of all honeymoons talked about abroad occurred in French Polynesia, Indonesia, and Thailand. Bora Bora alone accounted for almost a quarter of the conversation, the report said.

Five other popular properties for honeymoons around the world were The St. Regis Bora Bora, in French Polynesia; the W Bali-Seminyak, in Indonesia; and the JW Marriott Phuket Resort and Spa, in Thailand.

The Moana Surfrider also ranked as the No. 1 hotel in the world for posts related to engagements and weddings, according to the study.
