Now here’s a trip that can only be described as a picture-perfect getaway. When it came to their honeymoon, newlyweds Jayesh and Ishikaa Mulani made sure to leave no stones unturned. This week, You & I learns more about this young couple’s very first holiday together, which unfolded beautifully in destinations including Greece, Spain, Italy, France, and the UK.
Making the most of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Jayesh and Ishikaa, a businessman and designer, respectively, went all out and spent the entirety of a month exploring and revelling in the best parts of Europe. The couple, who tied the knot towards the end of 2016, began their journey by collaborating with A Travel Duet, a travel company that caters exclusively to couples. As per the company’s expertly planned itinerary, the lovebirds first headed to the picturesque island of Mykonos.
Set up in Hotel Kouros, Jayesh and Ishikaa were welcomed with some spectacular views of the Aegean Sea. While the boutique hotel’s prominent white-washed stone walls made for quite a few perfect photo opportunities, its close proximity to the beach and unlimited views of the bright blue sea made for a great start. Next up was their stay in Santorini’s Pegasus Suites and Spa Hotel, which was all about making the most of their luxurious amenities. However, the highlight of their Grecian trip was the professionally set up photo shoot that they shall remember for the rest of their lives.
One week of their honeymoon extravaganza was also spent aboard the Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas. One of the world’s largest passenger ships and part of the award-winning Oasis Class fleet, the couple boarded the ship from the city of Barcelona in Spain. The Harmony of the Seas has over 2,500 staterooms and the capacity to hold over 5,400 guests. A few of the top-notch amenities the couple was able to enjoy included surf simulators, an ice rink, a garden path, dining venues that offered a variety of cuisines, and a lot more.
But a trip to Spain is practically incomplete without paying a visit to the lively island of Ibiza, and the couple thought so too. The third largest Balearic Island just off the east coast of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea, the well-known port of Ibiza is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After soaking up the tranquillity of the small island during the day and raving the night away, Jayesh and Ishikaa made their way to Italy, Amsterdam, and France.
The duo thoroughly enjoyed exploring the historic tourist spots and experiencing the diverse cuisines of these culturally rich countries. From marvelling at the Leaning Tower of Pisa, to throwing coins into the Trevi Fountain in Rome while wishing for their love for each other to grow and strengthen over the years, their Italian detour was definitely one to remember.
Once in France, the Mulanis dove right into the fun part of their Parisian visit, which was a trip to Disneyland Paris. Making sure to experience as many rides and sights as they could, traversing through this wonderful resort together definitely helped bring out their inner child. Their visit concluded with the travel company organising yet another gorgeous photo-shoot for the two, with the legendary
Eiffel Tower as the perfect backdrop.
The last stop on their month-long honeymoon was the bustling city of London. The two posed with their favourite celebrities at Madame Tussauds wax museum, soared above the city in the London Eye, and thoroughly enjoyed the nightlife of this vibrant city. They also revelled in the familiar in this foreign land, when they came across the Dishoom King’s Cross Restaurant in London. “We had our best meal here, and would definitely recommend their seekh kebabs!” shared the couple.
Finally, what made their association with A Travel Duet more memorable was when the company surprised Jayesh and Ishikaa with a limo ride in Amsterdam, to celebrate the completion of their first month together as a married couple. “They not only planned our whole honeymoon, but also added this sweet touch, which absolutely delighted us,” they added. – Roshni
