When the only way to reach your hotel is via a James Bond-style speedboat, you know you're in for a pretty special honeymoon. At Six Senses Ninh Van Bay in Vietnam (sixsenses.com), you'll be transported from the buzzing city of Nha Trang to splendid isolation, landing on a crescent-shaped bay to a retreat with serious style, courtesy of Audley Travel and Vietnam Airlines. Every pool villa has been placed with maximum views and minimum disturbance in mind, whether they're dotted across the hillside, spread out on the beach or perched on rock foundations, some with direct access to the sea. Revel in vast bathrooms, lounge-worthy living areas and, of course, your own plunge pool. It would be easy not to venture further than your front door (yes, there's in-villa dining), but then you would be missing out on all the gourmet options. Go mad in signature restaurant Dining On The Rocks - you might as well, you'll be on half-board for every night of your stay. You can be sure of getting the best local seafood; try lobster ceviche and glazed sea bass, or just-jumped-from-the-ocean sushi. But don't miss Vietnamese favourite, bánh xèo; these stuffed, savoury pancakes are addictive. Plus, one evening you'll enjoy a barbecue cooked by a chef in your own villa. Yes!
And when it comes to the spa? Follow the sandy paths through the lush, green jungle and prepare to find a soul-soothing space fit for any spa geek. Luxurious treatment pavilions await you, each with its own private Jacuzzi for post-pamper wallowing. Treatments are tailored to you. Too much sun? Then choose the sunburn soother package. Need an energy boost? The green coffee body treatment is a divine pick-me-up. And when it comes to relaxing à deux, you're in luck, because as part of this incredible honeymoon prize you'll be treated to a 90-minute mind-melting couple's massage.
When you're up for a little more action, then head to Nha Trang for a thrilling city tour or be sure to book a Six Senses Hon Ba park adventure experience and trek through the mountainous terrain to a breathtaking waterfall (don't forget your bikini!). Make no mistake about it: this is a honeymoon that will steal your heart. Enter now!
