6. Soneva Kiri
Soneva Kiri is found on the island of Koh Kood on the eastern coast of Thailand. It is Thailand’s fourth-largest but least populated island. Its remote location means that it remains far less spoilt that Thailand’s more popular islands. Whisk yourself to paradise in the Soneva Kiri private 8 seater plane, just an hour’s flight from Bangkok International airport. Surely the perfect way to start your honeymoon?
Koh Kood is famed for its pure waterfalls, crystal clear waters, and traditional village life. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty with lush, verdant, tropical jungle and pristine beaches. The resort’s 34 private villas sit either on the beach, or on the sun dazed slopes amongst the rainforest gazing over the Gulf of Siam.

It is no secret that I love Aman Hotels. You can read about my recent trip to Aman Grand Canale Venice which I love.
Amanpuri Phuket is tucked away in Surin beach alongside the holiday homes of the rich and famous on Phuket. The beach can only be reached via the hotel or by boat, keeping it almost completely private.
A towering Thai pavilion sits at the Amanpuri’s centre, fringed by lush jungle and facing onto a vast black-tiled swimming pool with a glorious view of the Andaman Sea. A stone staircase leads to Pansea beach, a rustic-chic restaurant, more swimming pools, a watersports centre and tennis courts. An excellent spa is tucked away on the other side of the resort, overlooking Bang Tao beach.
Amanpuri’s rooms exude Thai elegance. Garden pavilions are secluded, with a walled garden, sunken bath and outdoor shower. Pavilions 103 and 105 have the most striking sea views. Pick a Garden Pool Pavilion for utterly private dips in your own plunge pool.
In Sanskrit, Amanpuri means “place of peace,” a fitting name for such a tranquil destination. Designed for your complete relaxation and rejuvenation, their wellness programmes are designed specifically for guests and delivered at the Aman Spa.

9. Four Seasons Resort Langkawi
Flanked by tropical rainforest, limestone cliffs and the emerald waters of the Andaman Sea and tucked away within a UNESCO World Geopark, Four Seasons Resort Langkawi’s Malay-style pavilions and villas offer both quiet, romantic havens for lovebirds as well as versatile family-oriented and wellness retreats. This Four Seasons is also one of the best luxury hotels in Langkawi.
The Four Seasons is located on the quieter northern side of the island, along a mile-long sandy beach in beautifully landscaped gardens. The resort feels secluded yet the airport is only 25 minutes away and the hotel is a short boat ride from Klim Karst conservation area, where you can spot macaque monkeys, sea otters and the unique walking mudskipper fish.
Four Seasons Langkawi has 48 acres and 91 rooms. A heck of a lot of beach and very few people. Malaysian people are the secret ingredient. They love life (and especially food) and take the responsibility of hospitality very seriously. They smile, a lot. The staff at Four Seasons Langkawi are simply amazing when it comes to remembering how you like your coffee, your favourite wine, where you like to sit.
The hotel offers a private hideaway for couples seeking a relaxing break at the same time as accommodating families. With just 91 rooms, arranged in dispersed villas, there is plenty of space for all kinds of travellers and I would have few concerns about being disturbed by children if you are a couple on a romantic break. The public spaces have calming high blue walls, tranquil reflection pools and huge green space, with the architecture brilliantly reflecting the Arabic and Asian history to the island. Bill Bensley has done a splendid job redesigning this luxury getaway.
Four Seasons Langkawi offers all the services expected from a 5* resort hotel. Three restaurants, bars, a spa, gym, tennis courts, water sports and swimming pools including an adults-only quiet pool with private cabanas. We love the pool-side service with mini treats such as frozen watermelon and strawberry smoothie offered every 30 minutes or so. There are a few nice surprises like the complimentary bike-hire (48 acres remember) and the ping-pong tables.
Even the entry-level room, the Pavilion room on the ground floor is large with great amenities. Whilst officially the room is 68 square meters, it feels larger with a spacious bedroom, huge bathroom complete with walk-in wardrobe and outdoor spaces at the front (sun-loungers, table and chairs overlooking the gardens) and rear (outdoor jacuzzi and shower in a walled garden). The super-comfy Four Seasons bed ensured we slept soundly, waking to enjoy the plentiful hot water, unique toiletries and a fresh coffee from the Nespresso machine. Soaking in the outdoor jacuzzi under the stars with an after-dinner glass of champagne (helpfully a half bottle is included in the minibar) is the perfect end to the day!
Wake up with a morning swim in your plunge pool before enjoying breakfast on the deck, then head out to explore the mysterious mangrove forests, winding rivers and ancient sea stacks that create this unique landscape.
Of course, wellness is important here. Discover modern balancing treatments at the award-winning Geo Spa plus our extensive “yoga for everyone” program. Long rhythmic strokes, kneading and grounding oils epitomise the urut technique, used by Malays for generations to relieve tension, release endorphins and lull stressed bodies and minds into a peaceful slumber. Theirr signature massage also incorporates indigenous buah pelaga, kayu manis and bunga chengkih poultices to promote deep relaxation in the 90-minute session.
Designed for couples to experience together, this award-winning ritual focuses on three specific chakras – sacral, heart and crown – to maximise emotional and sexual connection, love and universal blessing. Exquisite oils of mawar (the oil of love), bunga limau (bliss) and bunga melur (for stimulating the flow of love) result in a beautiful union of mind, body and spirit. This journey of love concludes with a traditional blessing ceremony.
Malaysia’s ancient Ramuan traditions focus on attuning the body’s energies to the rhythms of nature. This heavenly experience awakens the feminine spirit and floods the kidneys and reproductive system with energy. Its six therapies flow from a cleansing Pengwapan to Bliss Body Renewal, followed by a Glowing Radiance bath infused with kacip fatimah, a herb renowned for boosting energy and supporting women’s emotional wellbeing. A soothing Taksu Kasih massage is followed by kidney packs and kacip fatimah wrap to rejuvenate the life-giving energy of the kidneys and adrenal glands.
Embrace the spirit of wellness with their ‘yoga for everyone’ program: from sunrise yoga to moonlight meditation, beginner’s classes to therapeutic back care, children’s introductory classes to element-based asanas that align with specific Geo Spa treatments.
10. Tavoos Garden & Wellness Center
“Access to wellness is a basic human right, not a privilege to only those who can afford it.” These are the thoughts of Valentina Lyubiteleva who sold everything and left a typical 9-5 lifestyle in Canada and moved to Cambodia to launch a non-profit luxury wellness program with her fiance and his partners.
That one sentence is what drives the team behind Tavoos Garden & Wellness Center. A motto they stand behind. A belief system that drives them to work hard each day to bring guests luxurious and affordable wellness retreats while giving back to the community.
Tavoos Garden & Wellness Center is a non-profit luxury retreat space offering daily drop-in classes and weekly retreats for those who want to give back to their body and mind, at the same time give back to the community.
“When we travel to countries such as Cambodia in order to indulge in the beauty, culture, food and zenfulness we are always greeted with open arms by the locals. Even when they barely have anything, they share with us the little food they have on their table. They share with us their rich culture, their beautiful land and most importantly allow us to enjoy the zen environment while escaping our stressful lives. They allow us to heal our bodies, minds and souls in their backyard. So why should we not share with them these wellness activities for which we travel thousands of miles to do?
They see tourists walking around their communities with Yoga mats. They see photos of us meditating in their nature. Often times they are curious and want to learn, but are shy or simply do not have the financial means to do so. This is why we decided to turn the wellness side of Tavoos into a non-profit social venture.” Says Valentina, co-founder at Tavoos.
Tavoos’ Non-Profit Weekly All-inclusive Wellness & Detox Retreats start on Mondays. Guests can attend a 3 day, 4 day, 5 day or 6 day package where they get to take part in Yoga, Meditation, NIA Dance, Medical Qigong, Moringa workshops and Art Therapy while swimming and enjoying three healthy meals and a detox juice each day. The packages can be purchased as daily drop ins if guests have their own accommodations already while in town, or they can add accommodations through Tavoo’s partner hotels such as the Green Leaf boutique hotel. Two of which are directly next to Tavoos Garden.
After each successful weekly retreat, Tavoos will use its profits to dig a water well for families in communities around Siem Reap. This way, by attending the retreat’s guests feel good knowing that not only have they given back to their own body and mind, but also provided access to clean water for years to come to families in need.
Daily drop-in Yoga, Qigong and NIA classes are based on the “Pay it Forward” concept. Meaning for each class a guest attends and pays for, one class is donated to a local woman or child. Each week the centre hosts Free classes so that locals who normally would not be able to afford classes can attend and learn about different practices and wellness rituals.
Tavoos also partners with different businesses in Cambodia such as hotels and restaurants. After each 100th guest that is sent to Tavoos by one of its partners, Tavoos donates a water well in the partner’s honour to a local family.
“The retreats have been designed to provide a luxury environment and experience which everyone can afford. Healing and wellness are about giving back, not about making profit” Says Valentina.
For those who are in town for a short visit and don’t have the time to dedicate to a 3 to 6 day retreat program, Tavoos also offers its Sunday Funday package as of January 2018. This is a full-day retreat where guests can get a taste of all the activities and workshops offered, and enjoy a healthy lunch and massage poolside or in Tavoos’ zen tropical garden.
“Be a conscious wandering soul while travelling and share your wellness rituals, as we all need access to wellness programs. Give back to the world we all share”
