46. Sandy Lane
Over-the-top indulgence is the signature of Barbados’ best-known resort, a sprawling destination with three golf courses and the largest spa on the island, an enclave with private gardens and hydrotherapy pools. Start your getaway with a Signature Romance Ritual, with rose petals, couple’s massage and poolside refreshments.
Naturally blessed Maui has long been a favourite with couples. Embark on an adventure through the Edenic surrounds by snorkelling, canoeing or trekking through a bamboo forest, or indulge the senses at a private table for two above Wailea Beach. Hands-on couples can even bring home the indulgence of the spa with an instructional massage, guiding you through blissful techniques beside the ocean.
This celebrated Park City mountain retreat is a romantic destination at any time of year, but it holds an extra allure for skiing couples. In winter, the lodge is a beacon of warmth, offering ski-in, ski-out convenience to the slopes of skier-only Deer Valley. When you’re not exploring the 820 hectares of terrain, rejuvenate in the 3250-square-metre Alpine-inspired Spa Montage and savour fine dining and snow-dusted views at Apex.
49. Amangani & Amangiri
Wyoming & Utah
Discover two sides of the American wilderness with this duo of Aman Resorts. Located in Jackson Hole, Amangani keeps the spirit of the West alive.

Discover love at the ends of the Earth in this 29-suite lodge perched beside the Atlantic. Behind the stilted white façade you’ll find colourful bedspreads, cosy nooks and floor-to-ceiling panoramas. The rooftop deck is where you’ll find the saunas and wood-fired hot tubs. Rejuvenate after a day of berry picking, hiking or cross-country skiing with a soak as you gaze at the stars.
