This article will explore the top 9 best halal honeymoon destinations for Muslim newlyweds.

What is a halal honeymoon?

A halal honeymoon is more than just a vacation. It’s an opportunity to explore the world with your significant other, while staying true to your faith.

It is a time to relax and celebrate after the wedding ceremony has concluded.

As oppose to regular honeymoons, a Muslim-friendly honeymoon is one which follows Islamic principles. This means that everything is considered, from halal food, an alcohol-free environment, access to prayer facilities and more.

In addition, Muslim couples can enjoy special activities and experiences together that are specifically tailored for halal travellers.

As a result, halal honeymoons ideally take place in environments where Muslim travellers feel safe.

Depending on your travel preferences, there are several trip types that might be ideal for your post-wedding holiday. Whether you’re into beach holidays or wildlife experiences, we’ll explore a range of holidays for Muslim couples. 

Discover below our Muslim honeymoon ideas, including the best halal honeymoon destinations. 

1. Maldives

When most people think of a halal honeymoon, the Maldives is often one of the first destinations that comes to mind.

This beautiful archipelago consists of around 1,200 tropical islands, making it the perfect place for couples who want to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The islands are famous for their white sand beaches, coconut palms, turquoise waters, and rich marine life. In my opinion, this makes Maldives the ideal honeymoon destination.

On top of that, the Maldives is a Muslim country and so experiencing a halal honeymoon there is easy.

As the Maldives is home to some of the world’s most luxurious resorts, many of which offer complete halal certification. There are numerous Muslim-friendly resorts in the Maldives that offer different kinds of accommodation, including beach villas with private pools and over-water villas.

Some of the resorts in the Maldives even have a no-alcohol policy.

From swimming with dolphins and diving in crystal-clear waters to relaxing on white-sand beaches and enjoying delicious local cuisine, there is no shortage of things to do in the Maldives.

When planning a honeymoon in the Maldives, you might want to consider taking some time to explore some of its other natural wonders.

Activities to enjoy with your spouse include romantic sunset cruises, parasailing or snorkelling along the reef.

So, not just honeymoons, the Maldives is also ideal for a Muslim couple’s holiday.

For adventurous couples, a Thailand halal honeymoon is for you.

Thailand is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, with Bangkok receiving over 25 million tourists in 2019.

And it’s no wonder why.

This Southeast Asian country is home to stunning beaches, lush jungles, delicious food, and friendly people.

But what you might not know is that Thailand also offers a wealth of Muslim-friendly travel options, making it the perfect destination for Muslim couples on their honeymoon. 

As a hijab-friendly honeymoon destination, you can visit the beautiful beaches of Phuket and Krabi or go on safari in Khao Yai National Park. To experience Thailand’s history and culture, explore the ancient ruins of Ayutthaya or take a traditional cooking class in Bangkok.

Thailand is also known for some of the best food in the world, with dishes such as Pad Thai, Khao Pad Ghai or Panang.

As for hotels, you can stay in affordable, luxurious accommodations that are out of this world!

For example, Banyan Tree Phuket is an amazing halal-friendly resort in Phuket that serves halal food. For honeymooners, I would recommend the Banyan Pool Villa which feature a spacious, private garden and your own swimming pool.

As one of the most popular Muslim-friendly holiday destinations, Malaysia is an incredible country to visit on a honeymoon.

Couples flock to its tropical beaches and lush jungles to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime romantic getaway.

While Malaysia is home to a wealth of diverse attractions, there are some places that are particularly well-suited for a halal honeymoon.

The country offers plenty of halal restaurants and hotels for Muslim visitors. Travellers can enjoy delicious Malay cuisine that includes delicate curries, fresh seafood and crispy roti for breakfast.

Apart from the delicious food, you can explore rainforests, go on a river cruise, and visit ancient temples.

Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, is a vibrant metropolis with a rich cultural heritage. It’s home to beautiful mosques, traditional markets, and delicious halal cuisine.

Although it’s worth experiencing the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur for a day or two on your Malaysia halal honeymoon, I would recommend spending the rest of your trip on the island of Langkawi.

Langkawi is an archipelago of islands located in the Andaman Sea. The islands are known for their white-sand beaches, crystal-clear waters, and lush jungles.

Turkey is another great destination for Muslim couples looking for a halal honeymoon.

The country is home to many beautiful mosques and offers a wide variety of activities and attractions to enjoy together.

The majority of Turkey’s population is Muslim thanks to the Ottoman Empire which ruled vast swathes of Europe, Africa, and Asia from 1299 to 1922.

Naturally then, most hotels are geared towards Muslim travellers who want to spend their honeymoon in accordance with their faith.

Halal resorts in Turkey are ideal for Muslim honeymooners as they offer privacy, no-alcohol policy and women-only beaches.

One of the most popular destinations in Turkey is Istanbul, which is home to some of the world’s most famous historical landmarks.
