6 ultimate romantic luxury experiences

If you’re travelling with that special someone, then you deserve to stay somewhere exceptional. Whether honeymooning or a new couple, time away together provides a way to cement your relationship, pamper your partner and create memories which will last a lifetime. Romance does though mean different things to different people. Here’s my pick of the most romantic luxury hotel experiences in the world, whatever your requirements:

Breathtaking views

With 6,000sq ft of accommodation at Regina Hotel Baglioni in Rome, you could easily spend your days in the stunning interiors of the Penthouse Suite without setting foot outside. But the wrap-around outdoor terrace provides some of the most romantic views anywhere in the world, with the whole of the Eternal City laid out beneath you. You can sink into a candlelit private Jacuzzi pool while sipping chilled Champagne and gazing out at the Sistine Chapel, the Colosseum and beyond. This once-in-a-lifetime experience will set you back a cool $18,000 a night.

Wilderness dining

The Bushman’s Kloof wilderness reserve and wellness retreat in South Africa’s Western Cape offers some of the most romantic and unusual dining experiences on the planet. You can choose a private dinner for two at Kadoro, a rustic Shepherd’s hut which has been renovated but not modernised, so it’s like stepping back to a time of no electricity and no telephones. Your food is cooked for you over an open fire while candles twinkle and the starlit Cederberg Mountains wend their way into the distance. Or take a picnic in a wild location gazing at the spectacular African sunset. Unforgettable.

The perfect proposal

London’s Hotel 41 prides itself on providing the perfect ambiance to secure a yes from your partner. If you’re popping the question then the hotel’s staff will help you choose your location and provide you with a candlelit supper, complete with vintage Champagne, oysters, asparagus and chocolate-dipped strawberries. The hotel, which sits opposite Buckingham Palace’s Royal Mews, also offers the Romantically package designed to help you reconnect with the one you love.

Castaway picnic

While Robinson Crusoe may have famously been cast away alone, the Casa del Mar in Langkawi gives you the opportunity to take your loved one with you for a romantic castaway picnic. After a cruise around some of Langkawi’s islands, your crew takes you to a beach on a remote beach. Here, you’ll find a tent, with flowing nets and comfortable cushions, along with a gourmet picnic and the mini bar of your choice. Swim, sleep, sunbathe, and enjoy your day together before you are ‘rescued’ and taken back to your hotel.

A bath made for two

Perched high above the winding Ayung River gorge, pebbled walkways link the thatched roof suites of the Amandari Resort in Bali. The private garden courtyards include an outdoor sunken marble bath, with more than enough room for two. Walled behind glass but entirely open to the sky, you could bathe together in the evening while gazing at the stars in the arms of your loved one.

Pool with a view

Each suite at the Jade Mountain in St Lucia is totally self-contained, providing unrivalled privacy. Ornately-tiled individually-designed private infinity pools cantilevered out over the cerulean blue sea feature stunning views over the Caribbean to the towering Piton mountains beyond.  Swim to the edge of the pool with your loved one and you can truly believe you have the island to yourselves.

Whichever of the above you choose, you’re guaranteed both luxury and romance.

    Haha not sure why you get asparagus along with the oysters and chocolate dipped strawberries but hey! Asparagus can be the key to romance for all I know.

    Asparagus is widely considered to be an aphrodisiac, Diana.
