4 heavenly honeymoon hideaways

4 heavenly honeymoon hideaways

Whether atop a mountain or on a private island – Design Hotels has found five honeymoon hideaways where you can truly escape…

The Library, Koh Samui, Thailand

With an enchanting location and the most minimalist of design, The Library on Chaweng Beach is the perfect place to curl up with a good book. True to its name, this unique 26-cabin luxury resort features a library of over 1,300 books available for rent or purchase. Two new accommodations, the Bookmark and 2-Bedroom Suite, ensure that there is plenty of space to enjoy all the beauty Koh Samui (pictured) has to offer. Here you can get lost in the written word, and in the arms of your loved one.

Price: From £161p/n.

Alila Jabal Akhdar, Oman

Perched high above the valley below - in the Al Hajar mountains in northern Oman - the Alila Jabal Akhdar is miles away (94 to be exact) from the hustle and bustle of the capital, Muscat. A contemporary mountain kingdom, this resort hotel sits 2,000 metres above sea level, comprised of 78 rooms and two villas. Using traditional techniques and locally-sourced building materials, the rich history of the Omani empire is combined with Alila's world-renowned commitment to sustainability, assuring this ethereal location will offer an exceptional honeymoon retreat, perfect for adventurous couples, for years to come.

Price: From £333p/n.

El Secreto, Ambergris Caye, Belize

Accessible only by boat, El Secreto is a bastion of serenity located on Ambergris Caye. The Mayans once came here to trade and fish the fertile waters, and while the merchantry might have faded, the abundance of the sea remains. A prime destination for fishing and diving, El Secreto offers the chance to take full advantage of the myriad marvels the world beneath the waves has to offer. For its more terra-firma inclined patrons, the resort's 13 private freestanding villas are islands unto themselves, providing an atmosphere of romance and timeless tranquility.

Price: From £225p/n.

Vigilius mountain resort, Lana, Italy

1,500 metres above sea level and accessible only by cable car, Vigilius Mountain Resort is about as far away as one can get from the endless email alerts that make up much of modern life. No honking horns, no rumbling commuter trains, no glaring computer screens. Just clouds, mountains, and the chance to rediscover simple serenity in any of the 41 rooms and suites. A visit here means that honeymooners will leave with a sort of mild amnesia, remembering the experiences but forgetting the particulars, and all the while dreaming about their return.

Price: From £162p/n.
