Hotels for lovers

Bellevue Syrene, Amalfi coast, Italy


Romance permeates this hotel on a Sorrento cliff-top built on the ruins of a Roman villa. Rooms drip with chandeliers, antiques, marble fireplaces and four-poster beds, while balconies overlook the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius. The hot spot for romance is the Roccia suite, in a Roman grotto with a hydrotherapy pool by the four-poster bed. Doubles from €409.

La Belle Juliette, Paris, France


Rose-red and violet-blue are part of the colour-scheme in this sweetly pastel-painted hotel in Saint-Germain with a spa and swimming pool in the basement. It’s all tinged with romance but the hottest rooms are the junior suite in Room 107 complete with roll-top bath and the dark Room 306 hidden away on the third floor. Doubles from €185.

Chatrium Riverside, Bangkok , Thailand


Dinner on the pool deck accompanied by a violin-player is part of the romance package here. It begins when a BMW takes you from the airport straight to your room, in which flowers and sparkling wine await. A photographer will capture the dinner and later you’ll get an aromatherapy massage for two in a private room. It costs €276 a night for two.
