Six Senses Laamu, The Maldives
Located deep in the Indian Ocean, Six Senses Laamu is a luxury Maldives resort with a combination of on-land and over-water villas that are the picture of your daydreams brought to life. Spacious and utterly idyllic, the villas feature over-water hammocks, outdoor rain showers, “aquarium” dining decks with all-glass tables and solid-glass sunken bathtubs with ocean views. Be it spotting the dolphins, snorkelling or surfing, there are also plenty of water activities for you and your loved one to enjoy, and the most relaxing home to return to for the night.
We tend to associate Switzerland with its winters, but Palafitte has proven that Europe can have her island getaway spot too! As the only over-water hotel on stilts to be built in Europe, Palafitte stuns all visitors with the neighbouring Alps, a view onto Lake Neuchâtel from the bathtub and movable partitions for you to customize the temporary home you’d love. This hotel holds 24 pavilions that are either resting over the lake or on the shore. The interior exudes a peaceful, quiet charm, perfect for a slow and relaxing honeymoon.
Bambu Indah Hotel, Ubud, Bali
Bambu Indah is an eco-lifestyle boutique resort that restores traditional bridal homes from Java with the use of bamboo architecture. There are fifteen restored houses to date, and each house carries its own unique history, architecture and story. The Udang House is a special house in the hotel as it still features its original tempered glass floor panels, which sits over a pond situated at the stream that feeds the resort’s natural swimming pools. Guests can enjoy an underwater panorama experience as they lay on their bed at nights, which is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
