Thailand is the perfect destination for those of you that want to laze around on the romantic, picture-perfect beaches, but also want to explore and mingle with the locals. Choose a resort that offers the best of both worlds – such as Phuket. Thailand’s largest island, Phuket boasts stunning scenery and endless daytime activities. Stay at the Moevenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket and you can look forward to a host of top class amenities, including a swim-up bar, a full service spa and outdoor rainforest showers.
Nothing says romance like arriving to your resort by private seaplane – something which you can look forward to in the Maldives. The Maldives really is romance personified – white sands, crystal clear azure waters and clusters of beautiful tropical islands. Rest and relaxation is the order of the day here as you spend your time scuba diving or enjoying the spa. For an unforgettable holiday, stay at the 5* Komandoo Maldives Island Resort and book into one of their water villas – you’ll be able to start your morning off by walking down your villa staircase into the ocean!
Romantic scenery awaits you in the Indian Ocean paradise of Mauritius. This small island is perfect for an idyllic getaway and is ideal for holidays and honeymoons alike. Blue lagoons, magical reefs and pretty beaches are all famous hallmarks of Mauritius, but venture a little further into the island and you will be greeted with waterfalls, forests and stunning hiking trails. Choose the Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Spa Resort in Bel Ombre and you can look forward to a luxurious stay.
If Caribbean flavour is what you’re after, look no further than the tropical island of St. Lucia. This small island is still relatively undeveloped and so is perfect for a romantic getaway. A volcanic island, St. Lucia is ideal for the more active among you, thanks to its enchanting walking and cycling trails. Want easy beach access? Stay at the all-inclusive Sandals Grande St. Lucian Spa & Beach Resort in Cap Estate.
Stretching across nearly one square kilometres of the Indian Ocean, the Seychelles and their beauty will leave you in awe long after you have returned home. Scuba divers will love getting up close and personal with the more than 800 species of fish which the waters surrounding the islands are home to. The sunsets in the Seychelles are absolutely mesmerising and you will want to witness them over and over again during your trip. Stay at the Constance Lémuria Seychelles in Praslin Island for elegant spacious suites and an unrivalled beachside location.
