Tree House Bungalows in Koh Rong, Cambodia
When Joe and I decided we were heading to the beautiful island of Koh Rong, we had no idea where we were going to stay. Instead we wandered around once we arrived and stumbled upon one of the most romantic resorts I’ve ever been to in my life, the Tree House Bungalows!
We had our own risen bungalow that was nestled back in the jungle yet still practically on the beach. The beach and surrounding waters were beautiful and we spent an amazing afternoon exploring by kayak. We ended our day with a delicious dinner at the resort’s restaurant.
Koh Rong has so many beautiful and romantic resorts! You can find info where to stay and what to eat, see and do on in my super detailed guide to the island!
Fairmont Tremblant in Mont-Tremblant, Canada-
By Amanda from A Life of Wander.
The Fairmont Tremblant, located in the picturesque Mont-Tremblant, Quebec (voted one of the most romantic destinations in the world), tops my list of most romantic hotels or resorts. Nothing is more romantic than the fairytale-like winter wonderland views seen from luxe guest rooms, although a lobby with multiple fireplaces, delicious cuisine, stellar service and conveniences like a ski valet certainly add to the romance factor!
Anantara Bazaruto Island Resort on Bazaruto Island, Mozambique-
By Iga from Eager Journeys.
Anantara Resort and Spa on Bazaruto Island had me spellbound with its Mozambican island lifestyle. The ocean view from my villa’s wooden deck is framed by palm trees, blooming bougainvilleas and other tropical plants. We worked up an appetite with a morning horse ride along the beach and didn’t see anyone else during our expedition to the azure waters of Dolphin Bay. Here we indulged in a gourmet picnic beneath a Bedouin tent. As far as island life goes, my hardest decision was where to enjoy my next cocktail. The adults-only infinity pool has a wet bar and spills onto the beach. Better yet, we had champagne in the Jacuzzi at Anantara Spa, after a full body massage. It looks out over the dhows that dance in the crescent-shaped bay below. At dinner the chef created an epicurean three-course dinner based on our preferences for our Dining by Design experience. It was served on the beach, beneath the stars, by our private waiter.

Madulkelle Tea and Eco Lodge in Panwila, Sri Lanka-
By Flo from Yoga, Wine & Travel.
High up in the hills in central Sri Lanka is a stunning hotel named Madulkelle Tea & Eco Lodge. Nestled among tea plantations, Madulkelle offers 18 safari-like lodges with the most spectacular views over Kandy’s mountain ranges. Each standalone lodge has its own private balcony overlooking the tea plantations below and offers breathtaking sunrise and sunset views. This hotel offers a precious opportunity to disconnect from technology and reconnect with your partner and nature. During the day, wander around the surrounding plantations, take a dip in the infinity pool or even better, go for a romantic couple’s massage at the hotel spa. Head to bed early so that you can wake up and catch the sunrise while sipping on a hot cup of tea on your balcony – snuggle with your partner for extra warmth!

The Ubud Village Resort & Spa in Ubud, Bali-
By Georgina from Georgina Does.
The most romantic hotel that I’ve ever stayed at was The Ubud village resort in Bali. We had our own little thatched roof hut with a private pool and a huge stone bathtub out back. Each evening they lit the walkways up with tea lights and covered our room with flowers. It was incredible!

Hilton Hotel in St. Julian’s, Malta-
By Joanna from The World in My Pocket.
If you want to spend a romantic weekend in Malta I would recommend the Hilton hotel. Firstly, all the rooms are facing the sea or the marina and for me, waking up with the sunrise over the water is one of the most romantic things about mornings. During my stay at the Hilton I loved having breakfast on the terrace, by the pool, admiring the sunrise (I went there in November so the sunrise was quite late).
For the most romantic experience I would recommend the spa of the hotel, with 10 treatment rooms and over 80 different treatments. The spa has an oriental design with many zen elements and a very tranquil atmosphere.
The Hilton hosts one of the few Thai restaurants in Malta. The interior is a true work of art, recreating the experience of dining in the jungle. The restaurant is decorated with tropical flowers and plants, with a river passing through and even waterfalls on the walls. Actually, the restaurant has been voted as the “Most Romantic Restaurant” in 2008.
For a late night drink I recommend the hotel’s bar, with its amazing zodiac ceiling, the center piano and the beautiful terrace overlooking the marina. If it’s Thursday you can enjoy here live quality Jazz music. What’s more romantic than this?

The Aplite House in Freycinet National Park, Tasmania, Australia-
By Sophie from Travel Matters.
My significant other and I took a week long trip to Tasmania and never thought it could actually be so romantic! Nestled amongst Freycinet National Park, up a 2km driveway you’ll find the secluded Aplite House. No civilization is found as far as the eye can see, you are simply surrounded by nature and the one you love. With a house so spacious, luxurious and relaxing, you’ll find romance is all around you.

Kinsterna Hotel in Monemvasia, Greece-
By Noemi from Pinay Flying High.
Beautiful is an understatement, amazing does not even come close, stunning is a shame to say as it’s definitely more than that. The best way I can describe Kinsterna Hotel in Monemvasia, Greece is this: it’s like walking in someone else’s dream! Its perfection can’t be real, it has to be the works of an imaginative dreamer. It’s a 17th century mansion transformed into a beautiful hotel. It features a modern and luxurious decor all around the property but with a down-to-earth tone. Its breathtaking charm will make anyone fall in love with it.

Little Kulala Camp in Sossusvlei, Namibia-
By Roxanne of RoxanneReid.co.za
Namibia in southern Africa is one of my favorite destinations because it offers everything from wildlife, deserts and weird plants to shipwrecks, adrenalin activities and fascinating cultures.
Little Kulala Camp is perfect for an unusual but romantic getaway. It lies in a 37,000-hectare wilderness reserve near the tall red dunes and white clay pans of Sossusvlei and Dead Vlei in the south of Namibia. Here some of the dunes are 80 million years old and the sparse vegetation survives on coastal fog that rolls in from the Atlantic Ocean 55km away.
We experienced a sunset drive, learnt about desert creatures and climbed the Big Daddy dune. Our room or ‘kulala’ (it means ‘to sleep’) had a glass wall that looked out over a landscape of mountains and skeletal camel thorn trees. We also had a private plunge pool. But the most romantic touch was an extra ‘skybed’ on the rooftop. Here in the clear desert air we could drink in the brilliance of millions of stars at night or the soft glow of pink skies at dawn.
Ayana Resort & Spa in Bali, Indonesia-
By Ashlyn of From Heart and Seoul
What could be more romantic than a resort that sits cliffside, overlooking the Indian Ocean in Bali, Indonesia? I can’t think of much.
Ayana Resort sits on the edge of Jimbaran Bay, and it’s decked out with some of the most jaw-dropping infinity pools you’ll ever see. Not to mention the fact that you have access to your own private stretch of Kubu Beach, complete with cabanas.Spend your day there or in the world class spa, but at night you won’t want to miss a chance to head down to Ayana’s Rock Bar. Perched right out over the ocean – you can wine and dine till your heart’s content. Live music included.
But the best part is truly the service, though. The staff makes you feel totally at ease, and without having to lift a finger, you can really just enjoy the one you’re with. Perfect for a honeymoon, or just a week away in paradise.

Oxygen Jungle Villas in Puntarenas, Costa Rica-
By Oksana & Max from Drink Tea & Travel
On the southwestern coast of Costa Rica, near a small town of Uvita, lies one of the most beautiful hotels we have ever stayed in – Oxygen Jungle Villas. The hotel is surrounded by lush jungle and offers stays in 12 stunning all-glass villas. The villas are built in Balinese style but offer modern comfort and quality all throughout the property. Each villa is climate controlled and comes equipped with a king-sized four-poster bed, a traditional Balinese roof, and a private terrace with an outdoor seating area.
We visited back in June 2016 and absolutely loved our little getaway. Our private Jungle View Villa was nestled deep in the forest and offered the utmost privacy from other guests and the surrounding villas. Food at the hotel was delicious and the on-site restaurant was never too busy. The highlight of our stay was the beautiful infinity pool that overlooked the Pacific Coast and Uvita’s famous Whale’s Tail. The hotel also offered an onsite spa, making it ideal for honeymooners looking for a secluded stay with loads of luxury.
