Romance comes in many guises – shared adventures, starlit dinners, unwinding in style – and Six Senses is an expert at creating exclusive opportunities for togetherness….
Zil Pasyon – Seychelles
What could be more romantic than running away with that special someone in your life to your own private tropical island? Six Senses Zil Pasyon is the only resort on Félicité, and your secluded villa is one of just 30 on the island, each with its own infinity pool overlooking the Indian Ocean.
Arrive in style via helicopter – the resort is a 20-minute ride from the international airport on the main island of Mahé – and treat yourself to a massage to get you in the holiday mood. The spa has five double treatment villas – choose from holistic therapies and treatments inspired by African traditions.
Take a kayak for two out on the water, arrange a private cinema experience under the stars, and indulge in a private dinner in the the cosy Wine Vault.
Laamu – Maldives
This conservation-minded resort on Laamu Atoll is the place to go if immersing yourself in a natural wonderland strikes you and your loved one as a dream holiday. Outstanding diving and snorkelling is on offer, or take a romantic sunset cruise – champagne in hand – to spot the dolphins calling this beautiful part of the world home all year.
A barbecue dinner on the beach for two is easily arranged, and why not take a surf lesson together to really have some fun? Nine secluded spa ‘nests’ and ‘champas’, meanwhile, take shared treatment experiences to a new level.
Zighy Bay – Oman
This indigenous village-style resort of natural stone and wood is located on the northern Musandam Peninsula with the mountains on one side and a white, sandy beach and azure ocean on the other.
Along with the pleasures that come with relaxing in such a beautiful setting, couples are invited to experience the culture of Oman with customised tours and activities.
Don’t miss the three-day excursion through the fjords on board a traditional Omani dhow with a crew of five, including a private chef, to meet your every whim.
Con Dao – Vietnam
The only way to begin your getaway to this remote but stunning resort is with a Herbal Poultice. Following an Ayurvedic Abhyanga massage, poultices are heated and applied to the body by two therapists working in a harmony to get you feeling your absolute best.
Enjoy authentic Vietnamese cuisine, chill out with a cocktail or two in the hanging chairs at the Elephant Bar, and arrange a private picnic on a deserted beach.
In between, make some memories together diving, sailing, trekking or stand-up paddleboarding. The night dive, in particular, is sure to be unforgettable – the couple that plays together stays together, after all.
Yao Noi – Thailand
Thailand’s Phang Nga Bay, with its rocky pinnacles rising out of emerald waters, is a dream setting for couples wanting to unwind and let the days drift by.
When it’s time to explore, the resort, located between Phuket and Krabi, is there to help, whether you want to go island-hopping by longtail boat, cruise around on board a luxury yacht, or get off the beaten track by bike. In-villa private dining here is a real treat.
Samui – Thailand
This island resort’s 66 private villas overlook the calming waters of the Gulf of Thailand. Vacationing couples have the chance to embark on a wellness journey together.
Experts are on hand to guide you in everything from emotional wellbeing to nutrition and fitness; there are even outdoor boot camp sessions if you’d like to fine-tune your physiques during your stay.
Reward yourselves with a candlelit dinner on a seaside terrace with 270-degree views and sink into deep relaxation with a hot-stone, four-hand massage.
Ninh Van Bay – Vietnam
Stay in a villa at the water’s edge or tuck yourselves away in a villa perched high on the hilltop with sweeping ocean views – luxury is assured either way.
Toast the end of another day in paradise with drinks and canapés at sunset on board a traditional boat, greet the dawn with a fishing expedition, and spend your days lazing by your private pool, getting active out on the water, and taking in the scenery by kayak, on foot or by boat.
Aerial yoga is sure to deliver some laughs and lasting memories, and be sure to indulge in a ‘Spa Ritual’ such as Couples Connect during your stay.
