Bollywood stars do everything with style and flamboyance, often giving us inspiration to do something dreamy and grand as well. Everything about our movie stars intrigues us – from personal style to their favourite vacation spots around the world. And when it come to their honeymoon destinations, they leave us sighing with their choice of posh and exotic locations. So, if you’re looking for some honeymoon ideas to inspire you, take a cue from our Bollywood stars.
1. Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan: Gstaad (Switzerland)
Trust Bollywood’s royal couple to pick a honeymoon destination that’s unique and absolutely gorgeous. Situated in the Swiss Alps, Gstaad is home to one of the largest ski areas in the region. The village has seen many famous guests like Madonna, Prince Charles and Princess Diana, before our beloved Saifeena landed there. Lots of skiing and snuggling time is guaranteed in Gstaad, along with breathtaking views all around.
2. Kiran Rao and Aamir Khan: Panchgani
The perfectionist and his talented wife decided to head to Panchgani because Incredible India is something that you can never get enough of! Situated in the Satara district of Maharashtra, Panchgani is a quaint hill station that literally means ‘five hills’. This is a scenic honeymoon destination that boasts of lush mountains at one side, and coastal plains on the other.
3. Mira Rajput and Shahid Kapoor: London
London was the honeymoon pick for the adorable couple Mira Rajput and Shahid Kapoor. Pick a romantic stroll along the River Thames, or spend some time in one of the many luxury cocktail lounges in Mayfair – London clearly has a lot to offer to honeymooners. We bet the couple enjoyed their romantic walks in Hyde Park!
4. Avantika Malik and Imran Khan: Thailand
A lot of couples agree that Thailand is one of the best honeymoon destinations for couples from India, because of the proximity and the undeniable appeal. Honeymooners often pick Krabi or Phuket for their romantic time together, and Avantika and Imran did the same. They had a wonderful time in Phuket, and from what the pictures tell us, they had a rollicking time!
5. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan: Europe
Let us all agree that Europe is probably one of the best honeymoon destinations of our times. The beauty queen and junior Bacchan decided to explore Europe on their honeymoon, and spent some quality time in New Zealand. Europe has many destinations that are fit to film for a grand Bollywood movie –Spain, Tuscany, Venice and Santorini, to name a few. Bet that got you swooning already!
6. Genelia D’Souza and Riteish Deshmukh: Vizag
Vizag is an achingly beautiful Indian city that sits amidst the mountain ranges of the Eastern Ghats and the coast of Bay of Bengal. Visakhapatnam, the original name of Vizag, is the headquarters of the Eastern Naval Command, and this is where Genelia and Riteish honeymooned. A strong Buddhist spiritual centre in the past, Vizag has a lot to offer for new couples, including Borra Caves and Kondakarla Ava beach.
7. Vidya Balan and Siddharth Roy Kapur: Caribbean Islands
Vidhya and Siddharth spent their honeymoon at one of the Caribbean Islands and we bet this powerful Bollywood star couple had a fabulous time.

From Jamaica to Aruba, each of these islands has something unique, thrilling and of course, romantic to offer.
