There are few places on earth better than this. Bordered by ancient rock formations, mangroves and an endless stretch of dazzling white powdery sand, the magnificent Four Seasons Resort Langkawi - with its pretty 91 villas and pavilions - makes the most of the beautiful natural setting.

MORE FLY & FLOP HONEYMOONS

Set sail for an exclusive excursion into the Langkawi geopark in search of eagles, mischievous macaques, fish that walk (mudskippers), super-shy otters, kaleidoscopic crabs and sleeping bats, or why not simply wallow in the oceanfront pool with its eight private walled cabanas - here you'll forget the concept of time entirely.

20 BEST HONEYMOONS IN THE WORLD

If you fancy something a little more daring,  then take a jet-ski around the nearby islands with the resident watersports team or try wakeboarding, windsurfing and waterskiing.

Afterwards, head back to shore where you'll both be greeted with a cool ginger tea and practically forced to put your feet up (and believe us, you won't protest).

Staying on dry land? Bicycles are provided, but if the stroll to dinner or the bar seems too much effort, you can call for your own buggy to pick you up.

WOW FACTOR: Toast delicious gooey s'mores (marshmallow sandwiches) around  a blazing bonfire on the beach while you gaze at the stars - this is true romance.

GO: The Turquoise Holiday Company (www.turquoiseholidays.co.uk) offers seven nights from £1,560 per person, half  board. Includes flights with Singapore Airlines (www.singaporeair.com) and transfers.
