Vegan Honeymoon Destinations
VN's top honeymoon destination picks range from charming B&Bs to tropical getaways.
We’ve fallen for our May+June wedding couples over and over again. Now that we’re totally in the mood for nupitals, we can’t stop thinking of honeymoons. Lounging on beaches, getting served courses of vegan food, relaxing in a beautiful hotel room, what’s not to love? Whether you’re planning a honeymoon or just want to have a romantic vacation, the following compilation of honeymoon destinations offers something for every taste.
Sleep and Eat Well
Gramercy Mansion B&B in Baltimore, Md. provides elegance perfect for a romantic getaway. Rooms and suites feature antique furniture and artwork, spacious tubs, and linens that would make 18th-century royalty jealous. The mansion has even been graced with well-known vegan visitors including Congressman Dennis Kucinich and his wife Elizabeth. Maryland’s oldest certified organic garden, located on site and the source of fresh herbs for the B&B’s complimentary breakfasts, is enough reason to visit. If you aren’t convinced yet, consider that it happily accommodates vegans, is home to a wildlife preserve, has a relaxing pool, and is just footsteps away from an eco-friendly shuttle that will take you to all the sights Baltimore has to offer, including vineyards, museums, and farmers’ markets.
A complete vegan honeymoon destination can be found at the Stanford Inn in Mendocino, Calif. With stunning views of the Mendocino mountains, in-room fireplaces to toast your toes, an attached all-vegan restaurant, and a greenhouse-covered swimming pool, the inn is the perfect place to escape to with loved ones—including companion animals! A stay here means waking up in a charming wood-paneled room, eating a delicious (and complimentary!) breakfast each morning, and a range of possible activities from canoeing on the Big River to getting a deep-tissue massage. Learn more about the history of Stanford Inn in our Travel feature, California Vegan Getaway.
For those who love to travel, these ultimate getaways are for both relaxation and exploration. Paris, France’s Gentle Gourmet B&B is the perfect place to enjoy your stay in between romps around the City of Love. One of our Vegan Bucket List to-do’s, staying at the Gentle Gourmet is a vegan traveler’s dream come true. The B&B opened in 2009 and offers top-notch vegan meals, a plethora of cooking classes, garden tours from April to October, and adorable rooms and apartments.
For a less metropolitan experience, The Farm at San Benito in Lipa City, Batangas, Phillippines, is a unique healing center and spa where honeymooners can rejuvenate in the idyllic setting of Mount Malarayat. Alive!, one of the first vegan restaurants in Asia, is located at The Farm and features an extensive menu from freshly-prepared granola to raw-chocolate desserts. The Dynamic Retreat package includes breakfast each morning, activities such as yoga, Pilates, meditation, and power walking, and use of all The Farm facilities.
The Fivelements in Banjar Baturning, Mambal, Bali, could possibly be the preeminent ultimate getaway with its airy suites overlooking the Ayung River. Each room is named after an element in Balinese, and the room’s design embraces its namesake. Flowing white curtains embellish each bed post and window, floors are made of recycled timber, and adjoining indoor/outdoor bathrooms are host to colorful gardens. Your stomach and taste buds will also be treated to organic, raw meals that best-selling vegan author Jeffrey Masson describes as “the best raw food you could imagine.”
Whether you’ll be walking the streets of Paris or lounging by the pool in the California hills, you’ll have an unforgettable experience at any one of these honeymoon destinations.
