Greece honeymoon destinations
If you'd like to mix Classical culture with postcard-perfect panoramas and infinity pools that stretch out over the deep blue Aegean, an island-hopping odyssey is for you.
Stay at arty, central-Athens party pad New Hotel; and sugar-cube-esque boutique bolthole Grace Mykonos.
No one does romance like the French (according to the French, at least). Whether it's sipping espresso à deux at a sidewalk café by the Seine, throwing open the bedroom windows of your Provençal farmhouse to the smells of lavender and olive groves, or wandering hand-in-hand along the beach as the cobalt waters of the Riviera lap at your feet.
Stay at: super-romantic St Germain hideaway, La Belle Juliette; Alain Ducasse’s romantic hillside hideaway La Bastide de Moustiers; and Moroccan-inspired Tiara Yaktsa.
Daydreaming of mist-shrouded mountains or impossibly blue seas? Enjoy both with a 12-night, two-country trip, taking in the verdant hills and valleys of Sri Lanka and the tropical-island paradise of the Maldives, with more than a touch of shameless luxury thrown in.
Stay at: Clingendael, a five-room Dutch-colonial villa with incredible mountain views; Ceylon Tea Trails, a quartet of lakeside tea planters’ villas with spring-fed pools and all-inclusive dining; and a thatched villa at Anantara Kihavah Villas, beside the glittering Indian Ocean.
The buzz of Bangkok, the charm of Chiang Mai, the colourful coastline of Koh Samui, the quiet of Khanom, the paradisiacal beauty of Phang Nga – and that’s not to mention Krabi, Phuket, Chiang Rai, Koh Phi Phi, Hua Hin and beyond. Culture, beaches, destination restaurants – Thailand has it all.
Great Barrier Reef
With azure waters, powder-white sandy bays and spectacular snorkelling and diving, the sun-kissed tropical islands of the Great Barrier Reef are the kind of escape you dream about, but wake up here and they’re blissfully real.
