Romantic holidays: escape with the one you love

Romantic couples holidays mean something different to everyone. Some seek peaceful ocean-side retreats, where there’s nothing to think about beyond what cocktail to try next. Others find romance in adrenaline-fuelled activities and off-the-beaten-track adventures, all about experiencing something new. For others, a combination of both is romantic holiday 101.

Whatever escape for two you’re after – romantic beach holidays to cultural explorations – we have the perfect resorts, hotels and destinations around the world to suit your style.

Romantic holiday destinations: from Bali to the Maldives

With sun-soaked, white sand beaches to relax on during the day, and unbeatable nightlife and dining, it’s no secret that the Caribbean is the world’s most famous destination for romantic holidays. No matter which island resort you choose, you’re off to a dreamy start, but, well, where are you going to choose? With resorts in Cuba, Jamaica, St Lucia and more, you’re spoilt for choice.

The small but spectacular Zoëtry Montego Bay, Jamaica – all private beaches, soothing spas and tranquil gardens – really is serenity encapsulated, while Waves Hotel & Spa by Elegant Hotels’ emphasis on luxury will ensure you never want to leave. Known for some of the best beaches in the world, Punta Cana, the Caribbean’s “Coconut Coast”, simply has to make your romantic beach holidays shortlist. Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana’s private stretch is pretty unforgettable. Trust us.

If the Caribbean isn’t calling, the Indian Ocean could be for you. Home to the exclusive destinations of the Seychelles, Mauritius and the Maldives, it’s nothing short of paradise on Earth, and a popular go-to for romantic getaways. Luxury everywhere you turn, the water is crystal clear and the views like no other. There’s simply nowhere like it for relaxing and enjoying a private escape with the person you love.

Enchanted Island Resort, a private island in Sainte Anne National Marine Park, Seychelles, is as exclusive as it is idyllic. And it’s seriously idyllic. If you’ve been dreaming of a romantic getaway to a water villa in the Maldives (you’ve seen the pictures!) the spectacularly beautiful Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is everything you’ve imagined and more.

If Asia and the Far East are more your style, our resorts in Thailand, Bali and beyond are perfect for totally relaxing and totally romantic holidays, balanced with the opportunity to explore the continent’s rich heritage and stunning natural wonders.

When you’re not adventuring, each of our romantic holidays offer something special for couples back at the resort. Bliss out with a couple’s massage amongst rolling rice paddies at Maya Ubud Resort & Spa, Bali, or fall in love all over again with a meal on the beach by sunset at Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort, Thailand, these holidays are the last word in romance.
