We know the honeymoon clichés too well; the rose-petal trails, the chilled champagne waiting at the hotel. We’ve all come to expect certain little extras while honeymooning, but why rely on the usual and expected when you can plan a few surprises and delights of your own that are completely unique?
The never-ending honeymoon
Honeymoons are a trip of a lifetime that nobody wants to end. It’s hard to let go of your honeymoon, so why not call up your spouse’s boss and secretly extend your honeymoon by a couple of days? There’s simply no better way to beat that I don’t want to go home, back-to-reality feeling than not having to just yet. Remember, sometimes the simplest surprises are the most effective.
Get the inside scoop
Dreaming of ‘La Dolce Vita’? Get the inside scoop on your chosen city through local experts and book you and your beau on a private tour of the Sistine Chapel in Rome or the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. If they’re more of a wine buff, learn how to blend your very own variety of Malbec in Argentina (and then ship a case home for you to enjoy long after your honeymoon). Think of this as the gift that keeps on giving. No matter how niche the passion, Black Tomato can help you tailor experiences that will not only surprise and delight your spouse, but earn you some major brownie points too.

Make an entrance
You only honeymoon once, so do it in style. Imagine the look on your new spouse’s face when, after arriving at the airport, instead of jumping in a car, you board a helicopter for a sunset flight over the Grand Canyon to the stunning Amangiri hotel, or hop on the back of a chauffeured moped in Rome and zip through the streets to your hotel – stopping only for a gelato or glass of prosecco. If you want to take it to the next level though, we can even arrange for a honeymoon by private jet. How does taking in five African countries in a flying safari sound? Amazing, we know.
Rise, shine and surprise
Ordinarily, we’d agree that your honeymoon is a time to ditch the alarm clock and sleep in, some of the best surprises lie at the other end of an early wakeup call. Don’t worry though, arm them with a cup of coffee and your partner will be undoubtedly thanking you at the end of the surprise. Though, if you or your partner really do not like early wake up calls, the Hotel Ranga does the best! Leave staking out the Northern Lights to their eagle-eyed concierge and simply await their call when they appear. All that’s left for you to do is jump on a snowmobile – and surprise your spouse with an unforgettable light show.
Go beyond the upgrade
First-class upgrades, champagne on arrival, the honeymoon suite – any tour operator can swing these, but Black Tomato goes a bit further. After all, who wants the honeymoon suite when you can spend the night on a private island in the Indonesian archipelago? Or beneath the stars in the Argentinian vineyards of Mendoza? Or in splendid isolation in the heart of the Kalahari desert? None of these taking your fancy? Venture on the road less traveled with Blink to create your own honeymoon haven, anywhere in the world, to your exact requirements. Design your own luxury temporary accommodation in locations that are so private, pristine and untouched that no one will have stayed there before in the same way, or ever again. It’s far from just another hotel room and a pretty unbeatable way to surprise your loved one.

Au revoir! We’ll be here day dreaming about blending Malbec in Argentina and basking under the Northern Lights. Until next time…
