We have mentioned above romantic honeymoon destinations for Indian couples in winter by keeping their test and preferences in our mind. Some of you may be surprised why we have not mentioned Mauritius, Seychelles, Bali or Bora Bora islands in this list. We have not mentioned Mauritius as it would be peak summer in December and January and may not be comfortable to Indian couples. Seychelles and Bali have the highest probability of rainy days in December and January. Bora Bora offers similar beauty as the Maldives, but Maldives airfares are at a fraction of the cost of airfare to Bora Bora. Also reaching Bora Bora takes much longer with hopping flights. Australian islands of Hamilton or cities like Melbourne and Sydney are very hot in our winter months.
