A memorable wedding day is made more special with a fantastic, once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon to an exotic and enticing location. A casino honeymoon is an exciting way to keep the magical memories flowing.
Some may go for sun, sea and sand, with two of Hello Magazine’s top destinations for honeymooners in 2021 all about the warm weather and beaches. Others might opt for culture, history and the arts, whilst there are a select group who would enjoy nothing more than a honeymoon in an opulent casino. Luckily, some of the absolute best casino resorts in the world offer not just gaming, but an opulent and decadent experience befitting that of a newlywed couple.
Preparing for a casino honeymoon is paramount, be it getting ready for the games you can participate in, or understanding exactly where you need to go. Most top casinos offer games such as roulette, blackjack and of course, poker. If you do choose to play a hand of poker whilst on your honeymoon, it is important to understand how the hands stack up against each other. Poker.org has a handy guide explaining the difference between a flush and a full house, so you will be in a good position to make your honeymoon every bit as memorable as the wedding day itself!
If you are happy that you understand the intricacies of the games, and want to move on to preparing to find a great location you and your partner will love, then these four resorts should be right at the top of your list.
Here are four of our favorite locations for a casino honeymoon:
The Venetian Macao, Macao
Macau is known as the “Monte Carlo of the Orient,” and is home to many of the world’s largest casinos. The Venetian Macao is the sixth largest structure in the world and the single biggest casino location anywhere on the planet.
It cost $2.4bn to build and boasts a whopping 550,000 square foot gaming floor. The suites are luxurious, perfect for any honeymooning couple, and you can enjoy restaurants featuring cuisine from around the world, garden swimming pools and a sports event hall, too.
Sun City Casino Resort, South Africa
Since 1979, Sun City has been welcoming guests and impressing them with one of the top casino experiences in the world. Situated two hours from Johannesburg in South Africa’s North West province, it has over 850 slot machines and just under 40 gaming tables where those poker skills can be tested to the max.
To add a little variety to your special honeymoon, you can even go on safari as the resort has its very own private game reserve, which is part of the wider Pilanesberg National Park.
The Bellagio, Las Vegas
There are many iconic locations in the City of Lights for a honeymoon, but the Bellagio is one that will surely resonate the most. Made famous in pop culture by the film Ocean’s 11, the Bellagio oozes class from every pore and is a quintessential part of the Las Vegas experience.
Of course, it is not all about gaming either, with unmatched evening entertainment as well as expansive suites and a world-class spa, too.
Resorts World Sentosa, Singapore
Resorts World Sentosa is one of the most expensive buildings ever constructed, costing almost $5bn. It includes a casino, but also multiple hotels, a wildlife park, a theme park and even a water park, too.
The casino is no afterthought though, it boasts 2,400 slot machines, electronic table games and more than 500 manned table games for playing poker, baccarat and blackjack. Each hotel is themed too, and includes beach villas with personal butlers, for the ultimate honeymoon experience.
