World's Most Romantic Hotels | Top Luxury Holiday | Lightfoot Travel
We’ve found the world’s most romantic hotels… Once you’ve taken a look you won’t want to take your matching his and hers’ luggage anywhere else.
 
BIRKENHEAD HOUSE - Hermanus, South Africa
It’s not hard to see why this venue is in on the hotlist for honeymooners. With its clifftop location overlooking the ocean, this boutique hideaway is as about as romantic as it gets. There are just 11 rooms to choose from, each being a luxurious as the next. One has a plunge pool, another a four-poster bed, but make sure that you choose one that’s sea-facing so that you can see the whales when they breach the water right in front of the hotel.

AMANBAGH - Rajasthan, India

If you want to be treated like royalty you should head to this modern day Mughal palace in Rajasthan. Set in the walled compounds of a found Maharjah’s hunting grounds, this is the last word in luxury. Relax in your marble bathtub, take a dip in your private pool or wander through the tall elephant grass to a private dining site, where the team will serve you dinner a deux.

SAUSAGE TREE CAMP - Zambia
This epitome of bush chic, this lavish safari camp deserves every glittering award-winning it’s been presented with. The camp, which is made up eight Bedouin tents, overlooks the Zambezi River where you’ll regularly see elephants stopping to drink. Each tent comes with a private butler who caters to your every whim, whether that’s organising a game drive for you or organising a romantic campfire for you in the bush.
 
CASA ANGELINA - Amalfi Coast, Italy
If there’s one thing that the Italians do well it’s romance. This chic five-star hotel that’s away from the tourist trail has enviable views of the Amalfi cliffs and Tyrrhenian Sea. Each sparkling white suite comes with huge private terraces and jawdropping views. Sip a cocktail on the terrace or take a seat the top-floor restaurant Un Piano nel Cielo, where you can hold hands while gazing out over the coastline.

AZURA BENGUERRA - Benguerra Island, Mozambique

You can go for a couple’s massage at the spa and get wrapped in the prized African body butters and oils or go for a romantic swim together and spy dugongs, dolphins and turtles.
