- Niyama, Maldives
The stylish new Maldives resort has everything a couple needs for unforgettable retreat including basic essentials such as turquoise lagoon and white sand beach with many more travel ideas—but there are other features that make it unique. Couples don’t have to be tucked up in bed by 10pm as they are in Subsix nightclub where they can observe reef sharks and rays through ceiling-to-floor windows while dancing six meters below sea level. If you want post-party restoration, you have access to spa 24 hour in a day. Give your romance some credentials by taking sunset drinks at rooftop bar Farenheit, where you can also watch a beach cinema beneath the stars.
- Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort in St. Lucia
This is an expansive resort with the best setting in the Caribbean. It is marked by 59 villas that are dotted along a hillside sandwiched between the Piton Peaks adjacent to a golden beach that looks like a crescent. Being one of the UNESCO territories, the forest and mountains are charming. You can enjoy all day on the terrace of your pool villa or take walks along the beach to grab freshly grilled fish or take a warm swim. Rain forest Spas with treehouse treatment rooms are also prominent as well as late-night lounge which look no different from New York.
- Taj Lake Palace in India
Commonly recognized as one of India’s most romantic resort, Taj Lake Palace happens to be an attractively protected white marble building that has been floating for over 250 years right at the middle of Lake Picholia. It’s accessed via a boat (a good start for a romantic couple) with features like opulent rooms, domes and ornate windows. The rooms are also adorned with hand-painted murals and exquisite antique furniture. You can have a taste of all the Indian dishes at the Lilly Pond Courtyard if not on a floating, candle-lit pontoon. Couples can also go for massages inside the Jiva Spa. This is the hotel which features in the Bond’s movie Octopussy.
- Loisaba in Kenya
If you want to have a real taste of Africa in a luxurious travel destination, heaven-sent Loisaba is the resort to be with your butler. Lying on top of a rocky escarpment in a 600-acre private reserve, the resort is equipped with four-poster beds with timbered deck and handcrafted Koija star beds elevated in an open-air space, where you can spend the night while watching the sky. In the resort, you will get a chance to view the plains to the Mount Kenya. At Loisaba, couples are offered a breathtaking guided evening star safari on foot on horseback. Don’t forget to ask for an al fresco champagne bath for two to unwind together in the bush. You can also enjoy a host of other activities like night game drives, bush breakfasts and sundowners.
