We think Kyoto is a perfect choice for couples who want a magical honeymoon in one of Japan’s most incredible cities. 

Not only will you luck out with excellent weather and plenty of sunshine when you check out famous temples like Tō-ji and Kinkaku-Ji, but you’ll also see the best shades of red, orange, and yellow on the ginkgo and momiji maple trees. 

If you ride the Eizan Train from the Demachiyanagi station to the Kurama Station, you can experience the famous Maple Tree Tunnel at its most brilliant colors.

St Lucia Caribbean

Saint Lucia is one of our favorite honeymoon destinations in the Caribbean, and now is a great time to plan November honeymoon ideas on the enchanting island. 

Disclaimer – You’re not officially out of the rainy season in November. But St. Lucia gets the most precipitation from September to early November, so you should get plenty of sunshine when you visit.

It’s also shoulder season (yay), so you’ll get the best rates on luxury hotels and honeymoon packages when you visit the stunning island for hiking the Pitons, snorkeling and diving near Soufriere, and eating the delicious St. Lucian cuisine.

Suggested Stay: Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort

Seville, Spain

Best For: A November Honeymoon in Europe

Spain, Seville

While late fall is starting to get cold in many of our favorite Europe honeymoon destinations, Seville is a fabulous place to visit in November.

Many tourists return home, and the museums, restaurants, and hotels are considerably less busy before the holiday season. 

Visit UNESCO sites like the Moorish and Gothic Catedral de Sevilla and the Royal Alcázar before dining at the electric Andalucian hotspot, Manzil.

The nearby beaches may be too chilly to swim in, but November is a wonderful time to catch Flamenco (for free) at a neighborhood favorite like La Carbonería. 

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 7 days

Suggested Stay: Hotel Casa 1800 Sevilla


Best For: Luxury Beachside Honeymoon Packages

The Maldives

Looking for the best November honeymoon destinations? Maldives is a perfect choice for couples who want to kick their shoes off in the sand and enjoy a week (or longer) of luxury accommodations and plenty of outdoor activities to keep you moving throughout your holiday.

November is a great time to visit because it’s just before high season, but the weather is heating up, and you shouldn’t run into too much rain.

Book one of the many incredible resorts around Maldives’ 1,190 islands, but we love the idea of dining underwater or chilling in your villa with a private plunge pool at Hurawalhi Island Resort.

Best For: A November Honeymoon in Central America

Playa, Conchal Costa Rica

For one of the best honeymoons in November, head to Costa Rica, where you’ll enjoy shoulder season in one of our favorite locations in Central America.

Rainy season wraps up in November, so there’s a chance you’ll get some wet afternoons, but average highs are around 85°F (29.4°C), and there’s plenty of sunshine, especially on the Pacific side.

We also love November because the rainforests are lush and vibrant, the water along white shell beaches is warmer, and the jungle hikes have plenty of active waterfalls left over from the rainy season. 

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 10 Days

Suggested Stay: The Westin Reserva Conchal

Torre del Paine (Patagonia)

Best For: Epic Honeymoon Hikes

Torres del Paine

Head to the border of Chile and Argentina to experience one of the best places for a honeymoon in November – Patagonia.

Summer in Southern Chile begins in November, so hiking trails around the gorgeous bright blue waters of Lake Pehoé and the hiking trails near the mountains and volcanoes of Torre del Paine are at their best starting in November. 

You won’t deal with the same crowds as when you visit in December, so we think it’s a perfect time of year to plan an epic honeymoon adventure.

Hiking the trails in Utah’s best national parks allow you to explore incredible natural bridges, towering hoodoos, and red rock canyons with wildlife and adventure for days. 

And when the sun begins to set in Zion and Utah’s other incredible national parks, the many great stargazing opportunities make the most popular member of Utah’s Mighty Five one of the best honeymoon destinations in November.

November also allows you to see the fall leaves changing, enjoy cooler temperatures, and experience everything we love about Zion National Park with fewer visitors to share the trails with. 

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 5 Days

Phuket, Thailand

Best For: A Honeymoon in Thailand


If you’re looking for the best honeymoon destinations in Asia in November, Thailand is a great choice. We like the idea of heading to Phuket at the beginning of the dry season as a perfect way to celebrate tying the knot.

Phuket has a reputation as a party island, and you can definitely embrace the raucous nightlife if you want. But there are lots of more laid-back things to do on this idyllic island in Thailand. 

Hiking up the Nakkerd Hills to see the enormous Big Buddha statue, walking around Old Town for shopping and dining, and checking out the purple corals underneath the water near Hin Muang are all excellent things to do in November in Phuket.

Rialto Bridge in Venice, Italy

For couples who want to find the best European honeymoon destinations in November, we think Venice is a wonderful choice.

We’re not going to lie, you might need a good raincoat or umbrella. But floating down the canals on a gondola is fun rain or shine, and when you warm up with a glass of wine and a plate of spaghetti alla vongole at Trattoria Dona Onesta will leave you without a care in the world about the weather outside on your Italy honeymoon.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 7 Days

Suggested Stay: Palazzo Venart Luxury Hotel

Practical Tips for Planning Your November Honeymoon 

Book Early November Dates

Honeymoon Plan

Unless you want to add some holiday cheer to your holiday (we’re all for that, too), most holiday destinations in November are cheaper during the first couple of weeks before holiday breaks. 

Check the Forecast Before You Fly

Many of the best honeymoon locations in November have excellent weather most of the month.

But if you’re planning a visit to honeymoon destinations in the USA or Europe in particular, check the forecast to see if you need warm or cold weather clothes, as the weather can vary dramatically from day to day. 

Search for the Best Hotel Rates

Finding places to honeymoon in November is usually much cheaper than in the high season and around the holidays. Book your hotel early (with free cancellation) but check back often, as many hotels tend to lower their rates closer to the date of your stay. 

Look for Holiday Events

Honeymoon Plan

The Holiday season is a romantic time of year, and many cities embrace the cold weather and shorter days as a perfect time for hosting holiday events leading up to December. Check with your hotel or on local community calendars for any holiday events you want to attend (or avoid).
