P.S. These destinations are even bump-friendly.
Located on a private beach and unspoiled hillside, The Naka Phuket offers couples true seclusion, yet it’s only 10 kilometres away from Patong’s hustle and bustle. The generous pool villas (from $630 a night) feature overhanging bedrooms with seaviews, some with direct access to the beach.
The luxurious Tanadewa Villas & Spa Bali (from $180 a night) takes couple time to a whole new level. Enjoy a night-time dip in the private plunge pool or engage the personal 24-hour butler service to draw you a relaxing flower bath!
You can also take in the verdant surroundings at Como Shambhala Estate, Bali. Surround yourself with the solitude that is Ubud’s rainforest. Either pamper yourself with Ayurvedic treatments and numerous spa options, or snap on that backpack and trek through the surrounding lush trails. A dietitian is on hand to ensure you receive the best and most appropriate nutrition through your Indonesian fare.
An hour away by ferry at Lagoi Bay, Grand Lagoi Village is surrounded by sweeping bay views and lush greenery. Chill out at the rooftop infinity pool, sip mocktails while watching the sunset or pamper yourself with a massage at the spa (from $150 a night).
A 2.5-hour drive from Woodlands Checkpoint, or 45 minutes by ferry from Changi Ferry Terminal, Sand & Sandals Desaru Beach Resort & Spa is a quiet retreat where you can indulge in a private dinner by the beach, and a massage while listening to waves crashing softly against the shore (from $130 a night).
Ok, technically, there’s no beach here, but the internationally recognised Banyan Tree Bangkok overlooks the majestic Chao Phraya River. For a memorable babymoon experience, try the Sense of Romance package, which includes a romantic Royal Thai dinner on a river cruise.
