On an exotic beach holiday in Zanzibar, you can sleep on a private floating villa with the sea lapping around you. Made just for couples, the water villa at The Manta Resort features a bedroom located four metres below the surface so you can watch the sea life around you and a rooftop for sunbathing, dining and stargazing in the idyllic spot.
For somewhere more grand and stately, The Welcombe in Stratford-Upon-Avon is a country house retreat nestled within extensive Italian landscaped gardens that provides the perfect romantic escape fit for a king and queen, with its elegant four-poster bedroom suites and AA rosette awarded restaurant overlooking the gardens.
Icy escapes are ideal for cosying up by the fire together and we're certain you will be impressed by the intimate little chalet we found in Courchevel, or a sleek mountaintop retreat in Slovenia set above the clouds and overlooking everyone else.
