A Zanzibar paradise hideaway at a romantic all-inclusive hotel for couples


With just six villas, The Palms Zanzibar is a secluded hideaway in a paradise setting. Decorated in a refined blend of coffee and cream tones with hardwood floors and billowing curtains, your spacious island home features bedrooms, a living room, two bathrooms and a terrace looking out on the glittering blue of the Indian Ocean.

The ‘Unlimited Privileges’ package at Samabe Bali Suites & Villas on the sandy beaches of Nusa Dua includes a personal butler to wait on you hand and foot – from unpacking your case to arranging activities.

After all that, you’ll be glad to wind down with the cooling cucumber eye compresses delivered poolside each day at 3pm.

Romantic experiences are plentiful at this resort. Dine in a beach cavern made up as a lantern-lit wonderland or take a sunset tour of the clifftop Hindu temple of Uluwatu. Then as the sky turns midnight blue, return to your stylish contemporary suite, where rich Balinese hardwoods meet plush sofas and a spacious balcony offers ocean views – the ideal place for a star-gazing session with your in-room telescope.

Indulgent Thai island spa treatments at a romantic all-inclusive hotel for couples

For a more sedate pace, learn to balance the fragrance and heat of Thai cuisine in a cooking class or practice some serene and energising yoga postures.
