WORLD’S BEST HOL­I­DAYS FOR RO­MANCE

RE­MOTE RO­MANCE

Love is a jour­ney and it’s a 90-minute hike to the se­cluded Nihi Uma Izzie on Sumba Is­land, In­done­sia. A cliff-top, sea­side lux­ury bale for cou­ples who want no one around but at­ten­tive masseurs, a but­ler and a pri­vate chef, Nihi Uma Izzie is a one-bed­room villa in an en­clave set well away from the main re­sort. Think pri­vate beach and pool, un­lim­ited spa treat­ments and the get-away-from-it-all story of a life­time.

A REAL PEARLER

If ro­mance was a place, it would be Bora Bora in French Poly­ne­sia. This turquoiset­inted idyll is all about the ridicu­lously blue la­goon, coral gar­dens, over-wa­ter bun­ga­lows, hi­bis­cus-scented air, out­rig­ger ca­noes, spa treat­ments and a re­ally happy other half. To heighten the plea­sure fur­ther, the top-notch Four Sea­sons Re­sort Bora Bora can help you cre­ate your own sur­prise pearl story. This pri­vate day tour with a pho­tog­ra­pher and nat­u­ral­ist ends with the fi­nal snorkel when you “dis­cover” a mother-of-pearl shell in the coral that re­veals your gift to your beloved.

YOU HAD ME AT “BULA”

Aus­tralia is Fiji’s No.1 mar­ket and our love af­fair with the Pa­cific na­tion has been long and faith­ful. Fiji has plenty to of­fer cou­ples and the cock­tails and fine din­ing are made all the sweeter by leg­endary hospi­tal­ity. Top-end, adults-only re­sorts in­clude Liku­liku La­goon Re­sort and Toko­riki Is­land Re­sort in the Ma­manuca Is­lands and Tur­tle Is­land in the Ya­sawas. es­cape.com.au
