NTIMACY, gor­geous sur­round­ings and space — th­ese com­prise the per­fect hon­ey­moon lo­ca­tion. Here are three sug­ges­tions that may fit that bill.

In a hid­den cor­ner of Cam­bo­dia’s turquoise coast lie the is­lands of Koh Ouen (mean­ing “woman”) and Koh Bong (“man”). Like hus­band and wife, th­ese two dis­creet is­lands sit side-by-side in the sparkling sea, earn­ing them the name “Song Saa”, Kh­mer for “the sweet­hearts”. The Song Saa re­sort is se­cluded sur­rounded mostly by desert, but is still ac­ces­si­ble by plane from Siem Reap. The de­sign is in­spired by that of Cam­bo­dian fish­ing vil­lages, with thatched roofs and drift­wood fea­tures. Each of the 25 vil­las has a pri­vate pool, as well as ocean views ei­ther on the hill, on the beach or over the wa­ter and all come with out­door show­ers and day beds.

Hon­ey­moon­ers are in­vited to walk out to a can­dlelit and flower-strewn jetty, where Bud­dhist monks from the lo­cal tem­ple are wait­ing to give them a bless­ing.

Am­per­sand Travel of­fers a seven-night pack­age to Song Saa, start­ing from £4,460 all-inclusive per per­son (based on two peo­ple shar­ing a Jun­gle Villa), in­clud­ing re­turn flights from Lon­don to Phnom Penh and trans­fers. www.am­per­sand­travel.com, 020 7289 6100

Sasaab is one of East Africa’s most dra­matic and ro­man­tic lodges in the heart of the cul­tur­ally rich Sam­buru. On the high banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River, each of the nine rooms has views across the land­scape of the North­ern Fron­tier Dis­trict to­wards the jagged peaks of Mount Kenya. The rooms are de­signed to a Moroc­can theme and they mea­sure a huge 100m² with enor­mous open-air bath­rooms and vast beds, as well as a cool­ing pri­vate plunge pool. Spend your day on game
