A romantic, culture-packed beach break
Days 1–2: Delhi
This fast-paced, history-straddling city has spoils and surprises for adventurous honeymooners.
SettingSerene South Delhi
How do we love New Delhi stay, The Lodhi? Let us count the ways: the slick grooming, backlit courtyard pool, and oh-so-handy location, just a trot from Connaught Place. Swoon.
Smith ExtraA jet lag or foot massage each for two guests on arrival
Guided tour of Delhi
Days 3–4: Ajabgarh
Blink-and-you-might-miss-it village Ajabgarh is sheltered within the Aravalli Mountain Range; however this diminutive spot is privy to sweeping panoramas of ascending greenery topped with abandoned forts and palaces.
StyleModern Mughal palace
RoomCourtyard Haveli Suite
Luxury hotel Amanbagh is so breath-takingly romantic you’ll have heart-shaped pupils from the second you spy its rose-tinted walls and cupolas on the approach through the Aravalli Range. Once inside, it turns up the charm with a colonnaded courtyard pool and royalty-ready suites.
Smith ExtraA special blessing ceremony for two
Days 5-6: Ranthambore National Park
Ranthambore National Park is a luxuriant swathe of grassland and jungle in between the Aravalli and Vindhya Mountain Ranges; while there you may spot protected Bengali tigers prowling between its spreading banyan trees.
StyleWild at heart
If a ‘me Tarzan, you Jane’ scenario appeals, tricked-out, luxury tented camp Aman-i-Khás, just beyond its boundaries of Ranthambore National Park, lets you play on an exquisitely dressed stage. These tents are spotlessly white marquees with all mod-cons, sprung from a page of one of the saucier Arabian Nights tales.
Smith ExtraA camel safari for two, including sunset drinks
Days 7–13: The Maldives
Soft sands, secluded, greenery-shaded rooms, lively coral reefs: the Maldives is the stuff of fabled honeymoons, where reality does a fine job of meeting daydream expectations.
StyleTropical beach belle
SettingAway-from-it-all Thaa Atoll
Beautifully conceived island escape Como Maalifushi has thatched rooms with sleek wood-and-marble interiors, scattered over a bijou, gobsmackingly beautiful island in a stretch of aquamarine sea.
Smith ExtraA bottle of wine and fruit platter (and a bottle of champagne and extra fruit platter for GoldSmiths). Sunset fishing for two with seven-night stays
Book international flights to Delhi (or have the Smith24 team arrange them by calling 03334 145 550), where most Indian adventures kick off; as such it’s easily reached from all over the world. British Airways run direct flights from London (around an eight-hour journey). Travel within India is by air-conditioned minivan, with a handy, English-speaking driver to navigate India’s often chaotic roads. You'll need to book a connecting flight from Jaipur to Malé Airport separately and a seaplane or boat transfer from there to Como Maalifushi.
When to go
India’s lush interior can be somewhat waterlogged from July to September, during monsoon season; Ranthambore National Park reopens as the mountains and jungles dry, from 1 October to 30 June. However, the Maldives are ideally positioned for clement temperatures and have sunny spells all year round.
Bring a headphone splitter for shared on-the-road tunes, cool and comfortable safari gear, and a trusty beach-to-bar ensemble.

How can I trust Mr & Mrs Smith's hotel choices?
A hotel or experience has to be genuinely special to make it into a Mr & Mrs Smith itinerary. The Smith team has to have ensured that any inclusions meet our high standards before they'd consider adding them to our exclusive packages.
How do I book?
Either call us on 0330 100 3180 or get in touch using one of the inquiry forms attached to the itineraries.
Do I need to pay a deposit, and when is the full amount due?
Costs vary depending on your chosen itinerary; however, all require a 50 per cent deposit on booking to secure your place. The balance must be paid 30 days before your planned arrival date.
What's the cancellation policy for itineraries?
Please refer to our terms and conditions page for our full cancellation policy.
What if I want to add on a few extra nights or arrange a special meal? Can I add on a waterskiing lesson? I've always fancied that… And can we stay in the honeymoon suite instead?
We may have to get back to you about the waterskiing, but no problem; we can create a bespoke itinerary for you, and our travel specialists can recommend some of the area's more unique activities.
