While we’re all for some alfresco spontaneity, sometimes romance relies on a little ambience. Enter the luxury beach hotel room. The sort of room that is so perfectly placed between comfort and opulence that, despite the sun shining and the waves lapping, outside seems far too far away and instead you could quite happily spend the day/s in your massive new bed.
If you’re after your very own piece of Asian paradise then look towards The Detai on the north-western tip of Langkawi Island. Set in the midst of a tropical rainforest and backed by an idyllic private white sand beach that rolls out into the Andaman Sea, its individual villas are ideal for a luxury love-in. A dining table and DVD player make for an in-room dinner-and-movie date that doesn’t involve the dilemma of whose place you go back to. Whether you’re cooling off in your own private plunge pool with built-in Jacuzzi, or perhaps taking a shower-for-two in the massive rainfall washroom, there aren’t that many reasons to ever leave your villa – it even includes a Lavazza coffee machine so your morning-after caffeine fix is only footsteps away.
