The world’s most photographed pool is the perfect backdrop for those memorable honeymoon shots. And the best part? You don’t have to pose by the shared hotel pool in front of everyone – although that is the famous split-level one – because each room has its own private pool.

But the honeymoon seal is not just its pool. The resort offers Romantic Temple Dinners on the ancient holy Dalem Segara Temple. A private butler will serve a gourmet dinner followed by a paper lantern release. A local Balinese Priest will chant prayers to wash your soul at the sacred spring and to end the evening off, a foot reflexology massage at the riverside deck will ensure a peaceful sleep.

5. Soneva Kiri Koh Kood – Thailand

The resort’s villas are some of the largest in the world and embrace local materials and sustainability. It’s concept of barefoot luxury is just that: no shoes, no rush. Just total relaxation. Romantic moments can be had on the treetop or sharing an ice cream from the resort’s Ice Cream parlour. And if you’re not leaping at the thought of dining in a tree for your honeymoon in Asia, give the Racha a try for another one of the best honeymoon places in Thailand.

BONUS: Nihi Sumba – Indonesia

This was hands down one of my ultimate stays. There are pros and cons of staying in the lap of luxury, but I couldn’t find a more romantic place as the guests are limited so you will most likely have time relaxing together in your own private pool or going on one of the many guided tours and activities. If you’re a surfing couple and want to beat the crowds in Bali, this is the place to go as their is a private beach where only a limited amount of riders are allowed in at a time. It is not cheap though, so start saving now for your special time alone.

Rates for the one bedroom villas start at US$1,350 per day per room and goes up to US$2,250 for the Marangga Suites. See more photos and the latest availability Booking.com | HotelsCombined | Agoda. (Don’t get confused with Nihiwatu Resort in Kuta, Bali)
