If it's a short-haul honeymoon you're after, or a quick getaway after the wedding, we love Sardinia with its Caribbean-like beaches and crystal-clear water, only two hours from London.

Nestled in the hills of Northern Sardinia, Hotel Valle Dell' Erica is surrounded by a postcard-worthy backdrop: turquoise lagoons and white sand for miles. On arrival, drop your bags off and head straight to the beach: it's the hotel's real selling point. You'll find romantic bays equipped with sun loungers, umbrellas and enjoy a cold class of champagne brought to you by your own private waiter.

For some shelter from the Mediterranean sun, The Thalasso Centre and spa should be your next point of call. Treatments use essentials oils from Sardinian aromatic plants and herbs grown in the hotel gardens. Our favourite treatment? The 'check-in & check-out', which combines eight different treatments including a facial, a full body massage, a mani and pedi: a full body overhaul. Luxury treatments aside, there is so much to take advantage of in the spa; make sure to have a dip in the Turkish baths and Thalasso (sea-inspired saltwater hydrotherapy) circuits.

The resort has 148 room, book into the presidential suite with your own private swimming pool and hot tub. The hotel itself has a chic mediterrreean feel to it with hite washed walls, wild gardens and vibrant pops of colour throughout.

Wow Factor: Dining al fresco in La Prua restaurant suited on the terrace that looks over the beach - perfect for a sunset dinner.  Think fresh fish, roasted vegetables and a gorgeous bottle of Sardinian wine.
