Honeymoons should be completely indulgent and far away from where anyone can reach you. So a trip to the private hill cove on the white-sand beach of Lamai Bay at the luxury Banyan Tree Samui resort and spa in Thailand might just do the trick.

Recently opened, the resort has 78 spacious villas set around a selection of private pools - guests can choose from the Deluxe Pool Villa (measuring 191 sqm) to the opulent Sanctuary Pool Villa measuring a huge 428 sqm. The hotel also boasts the largest private pools on Koh Samui, and each is invitingly accessible from the living and bedrooms.

In addition to the pools the hotel has its own hydrotherapy spa called 'The Rainforest'. Designed as a hydrothermal circuit, with alternating hot and cold thermal cabins, couples can enjoy 10 different hydrothermal therapy experiences including Aroma Steam, Nature's Glow and Scrub, a Finnish Sauna and the Ice Fountain for a truly invigorating wellness treat.
You can also find holistic Asian-inspired spa experiences, performed by fully-trained Banyan Tree Spa Academy therapists and carried out in the 10 spa pavilions with gorgeous views across the stunning Lamai beach.

If all the spa treats, beach time and swimming put you in the mood for food, there are also two cliff-side restaurants located in the mountains: The Edge, for contemporary Asian cuisine, and Saffron, for local seafood, steak and pizza. Sun, sand and...seclusion - Banyan Tree has certainly got the recipe right for newlyweds.
