Couples Holidays

Discover the world, together

Whether you’re chatting over a candlelit dinner on the sand, unwinding with a couples’ massage in an ocean-view cabana, or wandering hand-in-hand through galleries crammed with centuries-old art – couples holidays are the perfect way to reconnect with your other half.

Our couple’s holidays will take you all over the world. For example, at Casa De La Flora in Khao Lak, you can hide away in one of a clutch of minimalist villas. These state-of-the-art spaces team pared-back, modern interiors with secluded, private pools. Sink in and soak up the cinematic views over Bang Niang beach.

Or, choose an Indian Ocean escape to Sri Lanka or the Maldives, where meandering sunset cruises and long, lazy dinners set the pace. Wherever your couple’s holiday takes you, the finer details will be tailored for two. Including his and hers spa treatments, huge double beds with personalised pillow menus, plus bathtubs and rain showers big enough to share. Because privacy and seclusion are paramount, you get your very own slice of paradise – wherever that might be. 

Caribbean

Each Caribbean island has something different to offer, but the one thing they all have in common is jolly, welcoming people. So whether you both wish to escape to a private island in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, watch beach cricket in Barbados or zip-line through the Antiguan rainforest there’s something here for everyone.
