Ponta dos Ganchos is a romantic private paradise on a secluded stretch of Southern Brazil with 25 bungalows surrounded by turquoise waters and dazzling white beaches. This relaxed rainforest retreat is on its own peninsula, next to waters that are home to thousands of oysters. There’s plenty to keep you busy – water activities, a well-stocked games room, a cinema with a collection of 300 films, a fully equipped gym and a restorative spa. At night, the lush “Yes!” Island is a perfectly intimate setting for a candlelit dinner. Take in the vivid hues of the sunset as you dine on Santa Catarina dishes, made from freshly-caught seafood and locally sourced ingredients.

Reposed in the wild and wind-carved Utah landscape, Amangiri hotel is a sleek sandstone hideaway offering both adrenaline-fuelled adventure and a peaceful retreat for your honeymoon. Spacious, with clean lines and natural materials, the suites at Amangiri mirror the stark beauty of the surrounding wilds, each with an outdoor lounge and fireplace with expansive desert views. Indulge in the incredible Aman Spa that channels Navajo culture and healing traditions in its extensive treatment menu, or refresh in the stunning heated swimming pool that makes a feature out of a finger of rocky escarpment.
Smith Extra: A 30-minute flotation treatment each
The award-winning Six Senses Zighy luxury beach resort in Oman may be just two hours from bustling Dubai, but you’ll soon feel like you’re in another world – framed by dramatic mountains, an immaculate sandy beach and opal-blue waters. The resort is made up of 85 rustic stone villas, all with private pools and an outdoor shower. The ethos is eco-friendly, with indulgent locally-inspired spa treatments focusing on indigenous ingredients, and mouthwatering Middle Eastern cuisine created with organic produce from the kitchen gardens. Explore the craggy coastline and the crystalline depths below dark waters on a scuba-diving or snorkeling expedition, or simply enjoy the tranquility together from your yoga mats.
Smith Extra: A 30-minute foot massage or body scrub for two
Treading lightly on scrub-covered dunes above the sea, luxe Kangaroo Island boutique hotel Southern Ocean Lodge is an exquisite designer haven. Solitude, serenity and privacy are what guests are paying for – staying here you get the feeling there’s no one else within miles (and there probably isn’t). Calming, contemporary interiors embrace the outdoors, with all-inclusive food, drinks and activities adding to a restful stay. Outside Australia’s Galapagos awaits, from kangaroos and seals to wild beaches and spectacular coastal rocks.
Smith Extra: A private wine-cellar dining experience for two
The Sarojin is a secluded boutique resort that strives to satisfy every wish and whim, and it lies not far from Phuket and the eminently explorable coastline of Phang Nga. The Pool Residences, with their enormous onyx plunge pools sunk into the terraces – are perfect for a late-night cocktail while soaking under the stars. The huge bathrooms are an unexpected pleasure with an oval terazzo couple's bath tub. Fancy a magical dinner for two beside a jungle waterfall, an intimate champagne picnic breakfast on a secluded beach, or elephant treks, scuba diving or cooking classes? The Sarojin's in-house 'imagineer' is there to create the honeymoon you’ve always dreamed of.
Smith Extra: A 60-minute Thai massage for two people, to be taken within 48 hours of arrival
