Designed by Kenzo, this 92-room luxury hotel is the perfect choice for haute honeymooners.
Each of the pod-like villas and suites is hidden amid colourful flowers, with a private butler to tend to your needs. Inside, you'll find colourful fabrics, a leather bed and top-spec gadgetry.
By day, laid-back lovers have their choice of places to lounge, including private plunge pools, secret gardens, a sleek infinity pool and an endless stretch of golden beach. Active couples can take advantage of the free mountain bikes, tennis lessons, snorkelling sessions and glass-bottom boat rides, while a Chinese massage in the beautiful So Spa will satisfy you whatever your energy levels.
Take a trip across one of the walkways for a hibiscus mojito at Le Takamaka before sampling award-winning cuisine at Le Flamboyant.
WOW FACTOR: Don't refuse the services of the butler; they're a dab hand at assisting with romantic opportunities, from dinner on a catamaran to a flower-filled bubble bath.
