Hopeless Romantics December 13, 2019

Enjoy some alone time with your loved one at a resort that delivers romance and luxury on a grand scale. Magnificent views, intimate lodgings, indulgent spa treatments for two, and sensational sunsets all make for the perfect couple’s retreat.

RENDEZVOUS, SAINT LUCIA



Rendezvous isn’t just a resort; it’s a warm, fuzzy feeling that envelopes you as soon as you arrive. This hopelessly romantic resort started life as the family home of our good friends the Barnards, and over the years, it’s evolved into a much-loved couples’ retreat with an incredible repeat guest rate.

The wonderful staff will be your friends by the end of your stay, and they delight in creating ‘stolen moments’ for their guests. Snuggle up on the beach with a glass of Champagne as the sun sets, enjoy movie nights under the stars, and dine with your feet in the sand at the Malabar Beach Club.

There are just 100 rooms and suites, some of which open straight onto the beach, and the generous all-inclusive programme includes bubbles by the glass, along with an impressive selection of land and watersports including a scuba diving programme.

Rendezvous is sister hotel to BodyHoliday, and so wellness is an important part of your stay here too, with an irresistible menu of treatments at the Spa in the Water Garden and holistic experiences including couples Tai chi and yoga. This is also a great option for a destination wedding, as you can choose to exchange vows anywhere on the property, and the wedding package is complimentary for couples staying seven nights or more.

SERENITY AT COCONUT BAY, SAINT LUCIA



Serenity at Coconut Bay boasts the shortest airport transfer in Saint Lucia, just a few minutes from airside to poolside, and it only gets better from there.

This couples-only all-inclusive resort launched in 2017, one of the most exciting recent openings on the island. Wake up to breakfast in bed, enjoy decadent days in your private plunge pool, and dine at the romantic Greathouse restaurant or in the comfort of your suite with waitered service. Or, for added privacy, your dinner can be delivered via your private Meal Box.

You’ll be pampered around the clock with 24-hour butler service, and the fabulous spa includes six treatment rooms and three beachfront cabanas, with the option to book a massage in the privacy of your suite if you prefer.

HAVEN RIVIERA CANCÚN, MEXICO



Haven Riviera Cancún is a beautiful paradox, an all-suite all-inclusive with the feel of a secluded hideaway. The resort is set on a sugary-white beach just 15 minutes from Cancún, but a world away from the excesses of the Zona Hotelera.

All accommodation includes a balcony with an outdoor Jacuzzi, except for ground-level suites which have swim-out access to a shared pool. It’s a strictly adults-only affair, geared towards romantic relaxation, and is centred around a striking circular pool.

There are five restaurants and nine bars, plus a host of engaging activities to give you a flavour of Mexico, including cookery classes, Spanish lessons and shopping tours of quirky Playa del Carmen.

RAFFLES SEYCHELLES, SEYCHELLES



If you were going to choose a desert island to play castaway for a week or two, the white-sand paradise of Praslin would be pretty high on your list. But Robinson Crusoe never experienced anything quite like Raffles Seychelles, a supremely stylish resort where each of the enormous villas opens onto a sundeck with a private plunge pool.

Here you can enjoy the finest in global cuisine, with options including the pan-Asian delights of Curieuse and the fantastically fresh seafood at Losean. The rooftop Takamaka Terrace is the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail as the sun goes down, and the Danzil Lounge offers a tantalising selection of fine wines and island rums. For something more intimate, how about a candlelit meal under the stars, a private dinner prepared by a chef in your villa, or a trip to a nearby island for a romantic beach barbecue…?

The Seychelles is a fabulous destination for nature lovers; head out on one of the complimentary bicycles and explore breathtaking Anse Lazio beach, or take the 10-minute boat trip across to Curieuse Island, home to some 500 giant tortoises and a plethora of rare bird species.

Back at the resort you can enjoy yoga, spa treatments and watersports including snorkelling, kayaking, diving and fishing, and there’s an 18-hole championship golf course nearby.

ONE&ONLY LE SAINT GÉRAN, MAURITIUS



This iconic resort has been entertaining guests since the 1970s, but you wouldn’t guess it following a multi-million- dollar facelift in 2017. South African designer, Janine Mijne, has freshened up the interiors with a plantation-inspired aesthetic, and luxurious touches include marble bathrooms with egg-shaped baths.

Le Saint Géran has always enjoyed one of the most romantic settings in Mauritius, on a peninsula bordered by fine white sand, and couples can enjoy extraordinary private dining experiences such as Champagne breakfast on a speedboat or dinner on a jetty lined with flickering lanterns. The service on which the resort’s reputation was built remains impeccable, and some of the staff have been here for decades.

ONE&ONLY REETHI RAH, MALDIVES



One&Only Reethi Rah deserves to be on every traveller’s bucket list. This palm-fringed paradise boasts some of the largest villas in the world; even the entry-level Beach Villas sprawl over 135 square metres, while the top-dollar Grand Sunset Residence offers complete privacy for up to six guests, just footsteps from the ocean.

A stay here is punctuated by magical experiences, from sandbank picnics to dolphin-watching cruises. There are six sublime restaurants, including the over-water Tapasake, where you can enjoy Japanese fine dining while fish swim beneath you. The diving and snorkelling are superb, the spa is world class, and there are 12 different beaches spread along almost four miles of coastline.

ZOËTRY PARAISO DE LA BONITA, MEXICO



Over half a mile of platinum powder-soft beach flawlessly frames this oasis of mindfulness and wellbeing. Engulfed within a picturesque mangrove forest, the stunning Zoëtry Paraiso de la Bonita is truly a sight to behold. Its awe-inspiring aesthetics have helped it earn a place in the elite Leading Hotels of the World collection, making it the ideal place to whisk your loved one away to for the perfect romantic break.

The Endless Privileges® plan is here to help ignite your passion; with daily afternoon tea, a one-hour catamaran cruise with sparkling wine, private chauffeured airport transfers, a sensual 20-minute Thalasso Seawater Experience in the Thalassotherapy Spa, hydrotherapy access, and a traditional Temazcal steam room ceremony, there’s plenty for you and your partner to do.

ZOËTRY AGUA PUNTA CANA, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC



Nothing says romance like the idyllic setting of the cane-thatched all-suite accommodations adjacent to a beautiful beachfront backdrop here. Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana is charmingly complemented by its natural setting, with its lagoon-style pool lazily weaving through the resort and encouraging you to lose yourself amongst stunning surroundings.

Marvel at the magnificent seafront infinity pool with its own swim-up bar, and dine on a decadent dinner at one of four restaurants. You and your partner can enjoy The Endless Privileges® plan here which includes hydrotherapy access, daily afternoon tea and a 45-minute horse ride.

BAROS, MALDIVES



With so much focus on where to find the most luxurious villas or which resort has the trendiest new restaurant, it’s easy to forget what brought people to the Maldives in the first place. Baros has been here since 1973, and everything is geared towards marrying the highest standards of hospitality with the incredible and precious natural environment.

The resort is Maldivian-owned, designed by local craftsmen to blend with its surroundings. The timber and sandstone villas all have a private sundeck or veranda with sun loungers and a comfy sofa or daybed, and some have a private plunge pool overlooking the lagoon.

The Lighthouse restaurant, with its iconic white sail roof, is perched above the water, and you can watch rays and sharks swimming beneath you as you dine in wonderment. Baros has one of the most amazing house reefs we’ve ever seen, where turtles and tropical fish glide amongst the coral. The in-house marine biologist gives fascinating weekly talks, and the resort has its own coral regeneration programme to protect this precious environment.

Couples can explore the island’s beautiful surroundings on a private dhoni boat cruise, or enjoy a romantic dinner on a deserted sandbank out in the lagoon. Baros also has a fabulous spa, drawing on the healing traditions of both Asia and Africa.
