WORLD’S BEST HOLIDAYS FOR 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.
