The survey, conducted online in January and February, 2014, asked more than 15,000 customers to pick their dream honeymoon location from among 20 destinations. A whopping one in five travelers chose the Maldives, with the Greek Islands, Paris and Bali neck-in-neck for second place.

"We know the Maldives is a popular destination for couples but we were surprised that its allure is so global. Among countries where we had more than 100 respondents, only three didn't pick it as the most popular dream honeymoon destination – The Philippines, Saudi Arabia and New Zealand," said Errol Cooke, Vice President Global Hotels.

The survey also found that Europeans prefer honeymoon destinations outside their region while Asians prefer to travel within Asia

When it comes to dream honeymoons, Europeans prefer far-flung places, as 89% picked destinations outside of their region. As a group, Asians seem the least likely to venture far -- only 65% picked destinations outside of Asia.

Malaysia is not on the list of top honeymoon destinations, but Lonely Planet has named Malaysia as one of the top 10 travel destinations for 2014
