What do you think about 5 Love-Boosting Boltholes?

Be swept off your feet by these luxurious hotels that will lift the romance in your relationship and provide a holiday to remember. By Lightfoot Travel

Ruckomechi Camp, Zimbabwe


Hiding away in the shade of mahogany trees on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, Ruckomechi Camp is the ultimate romantic bolthole. Rustic yet sensuous, the rooms boast cool features such as director’s chairs and lamplit dining tables, and the verandahs with sunken fire pits are made for snuggling up. Spend the night under the stars on the sleep-out deck, or share a sneaky candlelit bath on the banks of the river.

Gili Lankanfushi, Maldives


Raising the romance-factor off the scale, you’ll find sandy jungle paths, massage pavilions, discreet sunken lounge enclaves, a spa, and a plethora of restaurants and bars at Gili Lankanfushi. That is, if you can bring yourself to leave your sumptuous over-water villa, complete with a large roof sundeck which is the best place to share sunset drinks and an amorous dinner. 

Six Senses Yao Noi, Thailand

Six Senses

Perched on a cliffside between Phuket and Krabi, Six Senses Yao Noi is the Robinson Crusoe of romantic hotels. The thatch-roofed suits come with huge beds, sexy bathrooms and your own infinity-edged pool. To ensure that you both feel pampered, a personal butler is on tap to arrange private spa treatments and evening barbeques of aphrodisiac-fuelled fresh seafood.    

Awasi Patagonia, Chile


Inspired by old Patagonian shelters and ranch outposts, the villas at Awasi Patagonia boast king size beds, living rooms with a wood-burning stove, and outdoor hot tubs which make perfect places in which to totally switch off and let your private guide craft your itinerary. This might include a hiking excursion, some wildlife photography, or simply cosying up with your favourite person and a delicious Chilean wine in front of the fire.

North Island, Seychelles


The honeymoon choice of Prince William and Kate Middleton is heartbreakingly beautiful. Super-secluded, this private island is reached by helicopter, boasts four white sand beaches, and coconut palms and takamaka trees that promote total privacy. The eco-friendly villas ooze relaxation with a separate living room, indoor and outdoor showers and a plunge pool. What’s not to fall in love with?

Great Start to an 8_Day Zimbabwe Safari. My wife and I were safari virgins, and were not sure what to expect. Well, this camp was the start of a once-in-a-lifeime experience. on our first night there, an elephant tried to join us for dinner. but the food was too good to share. in our 3 days here, we saw about 12 lions and saw a couple of them mating, and saw 3 leopards, one of them facing off with an oversize porcupine. it was a draw; they both knew better than to strike. and our guide, Chris, was brilliant, just brilliant in explaining the animal life. the camp was the perfect size, i think about 12 tents. we went out in our land rover with 2 other couples, and since it had 3 rows for passengers, every one had a full-view seat. and the staff could not be any nicer. superberniej New York City, New York on Tripadvisor
