5 alternative honeymoon hotel beds

A mint on the pillow is all very well, but for something a little different, try one of these alternative honeymoon hotel beds

On the rocks, with a twist - in Sweden

Pillow talk: Cuddle up together on a bed of ice and snow at the seasonal Ice Hotel in Sweden. The hotel is created afresh each year, so no two rooms are the same year on year. The 'cold' accommodation is between -5°C to -8°C, a great excuse to snuggle up together in a double sleeping bag ontop of reindeer skins. In the morning, head to the 'warm' accommodation for a morning sauna after being awakened with cups of hot lingonberry juice at your bedside. You can get married at the Ice Hotel - Discover the World can help you make arrangements.

Snooze in the sunset - the Maldives

Pillow talk: If you're indulging yourselves in a luxurious resort honeymoon, make sure your special trip is unique with some quirky, romantic extras. How does a round bed that also rotates 180° to follow the sunset sound? This is exactly what you get at the two exclusive Sunset Water Villas of the Conrad Maldives Rangali resort.

Go on a sleep-afari - in Kenya

Pillow talk: In your room at dreamy Loisaba lodge, perched on the edge of Kenya's Laikipia Plateau, a handcrafted four-poster is wheeled out onto a lofty terrace. With just a thin veil of netting between you and the heavens, watch as stars shoot, planets twinkle and the Milky Way lords over all; a soundtrack of hyena laughs and who-knows-what-else shuffling about the bush will ensure you don't sleep a wink.

Floating away on cloud nine - in Paris

Pillow talk: The rooms at the Hotel Seven in Paris's Latin Quarter will leave you walking on cloud nine... as everything levitates! The architectural prowess creates a unique and unforgettable stay in rooms where even the bathtub floats. All lit by fiber optics, Seven has a choice of four different levitating beds for a floaty and futuristic night.

Fall asleep for a hundred years - in Belgium

Pillow talk: If you dream of living happily ever after, La Balade des Gnomes has fairytale beds and bedrooms to fulfill all your fantasies. as well as a Trojan Horse suite, there's a boat bed (in its own pool) on the third floor, a forest cabin (watch out for wolves!) and a bed 'under the Morrocan stars' all in deepest, darkest Belgium. Their website is in French.
