Kristen Korey Pike
Whether your honeymoon tastes include a beach holiday in the Caribbean or an art-filled trip to Abu Dhabi, Pike will set you up with a romantic getaway to remember. She spent her childhood years in the United Arab Emirates and England, and possesses vast, enviable knowledge of the world’s dreamiest honeymoon destinations, hotels, and attractions — especially in the Middle East, one of her many specialties. She has traveled to the region more than 12 times in the past three years and is well versed in travel to Lebanon, Israel, Turkey, and Jordan. Ask her to arrange an itinerary in Petra, Jordan, for example, and she’ll organize a candlelit viewing of the ancient site, complete with bedouin music playing in the background. Outside the region, another area of interest is Italy, which remains her top-selling honeymoon destination. Pike says she’s observed a shift in interest away from popular locales like the Amalfi Coast toward more off-the-beaten-path spots in regions like Sicily and Puglia.
