But where are the best vegan-friendly honeymoon destinations?
There are so many great options to choose from, but we’ve narrowed it down to a few favorites. Enjoy each other’s company and bask in marital bliss at one of these stunning cruelty-free vacation spots:
If a relaxing lakeside, surrounded by Mayan ruins, volcanoes, and coffee fields sounds like a honeymoon you’d both enjoy, consider staying at The Laguna Lodge. This eco-resort is located on the lakeshore of Guatemala’s legendary Lake Atitlán and exclusively nestled in its own nature reserve. Together, you can hike a volcano, explore the hotel’s surrounding mountain trails, go kayaking, dine on delicious vegan food, or even paraglide off a cliff into the lake.
“We spent the first 4 days of our honeymoon here and it was pretty amazing,” one honeymooner said.
Do you and your new spouse have a furry friend? This vegan hotel on the Pacific coast is equally friendly to humans and their animal companions. Enjoy each other’s company while canoeing, biking, or even taking a vegan cheese-making class, all in one of the most spectacular settings along the entire California coast. Then unwind over a romantic dinner at Ravens Restaurant, an all-vegan eatery that’s focused on sustainability.
“As two vegans on our honeymoon, we really enjoyed our stay at this vegan retreat!!” said one honeymooner.
If you and your partner are spiritual, Willka T’ika could be for you. It features seven chakra gardens as well as yoga and meditation classes. Together, you’ll enjoy the gourmet cooking classes offered here as well as the hiking and river rafting in the surrounding mountains. The retreat and yoga center also boast convenient access to the renowned World Heritage site of Machu Picchu, something you and your new spouse will never forget.
“Every detail was perfect, from the honeymoon suite we stayed in to the food and wonderful people who work there,” gushed one patron.
You’re sure to find peace at Ylang Ylang, a gorgeous getaway destination right in the heart of nature. This resort offers several honeymoon packages that are specially designed for two as well as several vegan meal options, including salads, nachos, curry, and more. You can even enjoy an all-vegan meal on Montezuma Beach, including dishes such as Vegan Catepillar Maki and Blackened Tofu Steak with Mango or Passion Fruit Sauce. Yum!
“My wife and I were treated so well by all the staff members and the honeymoon package did not disappoint,” one honeymooner recalled.
Las Vegas is full of fun and exciting things to do for adventurous and fun-loving couples. Perfect for a bachelor or bachelorette party or a fun and wild honeymoon, the Wynn in Las Vegas offers gorgeous accommodations and a wide variety of vegan food options. Every single restaurant in the hotel offers a vegan menu, each created by renowned vegan chef Tal Ronnen, founder of Los Angeles vegan restaurant Crossroads Kitchen.
“My fiance is vegan which is why we chose Wynn initially. … [Our] expectations have been blown away and far exceeded,” reminisced one honeymooner.
Take your other half and jet to Fiji’s Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort, an idyllic spot for honeymooning vegans. The hotel’s Romantic Escape Package ensures a romantic getaway for two, complete with off-site excursions, snorkeling trips, vegan-friendly à la carte meals, and more. You can even choose to stay in the resort’s one-of-a-kind bure designed specifically for honeymooning couples.
“This place was beyond our imagination of what the perfect honeymoon could be,” said one patron who stayed in the bure.
A little stressed out from planning a wedding? Unwind and recharge at The Farm at San Benito in the Philippines. Spa treatments, holistic medical services, and mindful fitness activities make it an ideal spot for celebrating you and your partner’s love for each other. But the best part about the resort is easily all the vegan food. Vegan cuisine is an important component of The Farm, where staff understand that being vegan isn’t just a diet but a way of life.
“Even if you’re not vegan, you will definitely enjoy the food and probably convert to being one,” wrote one guest.
To create your own vegan honeymoon, contact Humane Travel, a company that offers travelers great value without compromising its dedication to animals. Some travel sites and agencies still peddle cruel tourist traps—like those that continue to sell tickets to SeaWorld, advertise elephant rides, or promote “swim with dolphins” experiences. There’s nothing romantic about these. But Humane Travel is different—every travel option lets you have fun without harming animals.
