So you're an active girl but your new husband can just about manage to turn over on his sun lounger? Then get yourselves to Pulau Gaya, a tropical island covered in dense rainforest off the coast of Borneo.

THE ULTIMATE HONEYMOON GUIDE

This is the remote setting for Gaya Island Resort, where nature reserve meets beach hideaway.

On giant stilts and surrounded by lush greenery, rooms have an earthy palette of slate, burnt orange and chocolate browns.

Each has a large terrace filled with plush cushions so you can gaze over the treetops or South China Sea.

NEWCOMERS: THE BEST NEW HONEYMOON HOTELS

Borneo's small size hides a huge variety: you can dive in the Tunku Abdul Rahman marine park, trek through jungle, and even climb Mount Kinabalu. But try the treetop spa; the Rolling Waves massage is as rhythmic and relaxing as it sounds.

WOW FACTOR: Have a picnic on the rainforest-backed beach in Tavajun Bay, a five-minute boat hop away.
