From the heights of Santorini’s cliffs to an inner-city sanctuary in London, here are eight unique hotel suites guaranteed to fan the fire of your next romantic escape
Six Senses Ninh Van Bay – Vietnam
Water Pool Villa
Vietnam is a favourite holiday destination among Aussies, who head to the South East Asian country for its golden sand beaches, gorgeous mountainous horizon, fascinating history and colourful culture. At the Six Senses in Ninh Van Bay, guests have the choice of various pool villas, but the Water Pool Villas are our favourite. Overlooking the bay’s coral formations with wooden steps leading directly to the sea, they come with a mini wine cellar, a private deck – the perfect place to enjoy the sunset – and plenty of privacy.
The Heriot Suite
For those who love a themed hotel room, The Witchery by the Castle Hotel in Scotland won’t disappoint, with every suite uniquely styled in different gothic themes. The Heriot—named after the founder of the nearby George Heriot’s school—is the hotel’s most luxurious and romantic room. It has a velvet-draped four-poster bed and a walk-in dressing room, while the bathroom is hidden within the suite and boasts chapel-like ceilings and a roll top bath for two. Guests of the Witchery are also treated to a complimentary bottle of Champagne, cookies, mineral water, turn-down service, and a delicious Scottish breakfast.

The villa comes with an oversized king-size bed that is draped with a canopy of Egyptian cotton, a monsoon shower and stand-alone bathtub, and a private lap pool and sundeck.

Tri – Koggala Lake, Sri Lanka
Lake Villa with Pool
Perched right on the water’s edge, Tri’s lakeside villas come with uninterrupted views of Koggala Lake on Sri Lanka’s south coast and feature their own private plunge pool. Beyond the romantic sanctuary of the villa, there are also plenty of things to do including private whale watching tours, and a visit to the historic town of Galle Fort. For an extra dose of romance, book a spa treatment at Tri’s Spa, where large windows provide views over the treetops and bring the beautiful outdoor setting in.
Monteverdi – Tuscany, Italy
Luxury View Suite
Tuscany is undoubtedly one of the most romantic destinations on Earth with its lush landscape, charming villages and sensational wines and cuisine. The Monteverdi is located in an ideal location in the medieval hamelt of Castiglioncello del Trinoro, overlooking the historic Val d’Orcia, and is an easy drive to some of the most renowned Tuscan hill towns – Siena, Montepulciano, Orvieto and Pienza. The Luxury View Suites are the most romantic suites at Monteverdi and have breathtaking views of the Val d’Orcia, with wood-beamed ceilings and a solid wood handmade king-size bed. For art and music lovers, the Monteverdi hosts annual art exhibits and internationally acclaimed performing artists, and cooking classes are also provided under Monteverdi’s Chef Giancarla Bodoni. Visit the spa to experience the Serenity Pools consisting of an underground heated pool, a sensory shower, and a cold plunge pool inspired by Roman bathing rituals, or book a Hammam Treatment – a unique cleanse inspired by Moroccan bathing rituals.
Canaves Oia Suites – Santorini, Greece
Infinity Pool Suite
Santorini is undoubtedly the pinnacle of honeymoon destinations and it’s no wonder why. Canaves Oia is home to some of the most impressive accommodation on the island, and our favourite, for obvious reasons, is the Infinity Pool Suite, located in a unique location on a cliffside. With amazing panoramic views of the Aegean Sea and the Caldera, along with a king size bed and a separate living room, a spacious bathroom with rain shower and walk-in closet, this suite oozes romance at every turn. Windows or patio doors in all areas allow that deep blue Aegean sea to enter the interior, while outside, the private veranda awaits with a panoramic infinity-edge pool and open-air dining area with a seemingly never-ending vista.
