Just setting foot on this heavenly island, with its pure sand and blue, blue waters, brings a immediate sense of calm. Everything you need for a hot honeymoon is here.

You'll find one of the most stunning natural reefs that you're ever likely to see, great for whiling away hours snorkelling among brightly coloured fish, turtles and (harmless!) sharks.

If you ever tire of the sea, lounge by the fibre-optic-lit infinity pool (below left) while sipping on a tropical cocktail. For some inner peace, visit the spa - a wooden haven on its own jetty.


The sound of waves gently lapping underfoot and the cooling breeze set the tone for the ultimate relaxing experience.

Master those Zen feelings by practising ashtanga yoga on the thatch-roofed deck overlooking the sea, or have a deep-tissue massage - this is all about realigning your body and soul.

Finish the day with a flourish by booking a table at the fab 135º East and feasting upon delicious traditional Japanese cuisine, prepared right before your eyes.


WOW FACTOR: For sheer escapism, spend a night on Lonubo, a private island just  a short boat ride away. Lie on the outdoor 'love bed' and gaze at the stars, with only the sea and scuttling crabs in earshot.
