The location alone is enough to send honeymoon hearts aflutter with the closest (inhabited) island neighbour a civilised ten kilometres away, but it’s the design which really impresses; barefoot luxury all the way with contemporary-cool overwater Aqua Villas sporting endless ocean views and equally lovely Island Villas with private gardens and plunge pools. Stroll the spotless sands, hit the day spa, or immerse yourself in the traffic jam of exotic fish which inhabit these fabled waters.
Perfect for: camera-shy couples who want the ultimate honeymoon retreat.
