A romantic getaway or honeymoon in the desert might not seem like the usual trip, but hear us out – this off-the-beaten track holiday is just as luxurious and memorable as any other out there. We've rounded up the top 5 desert hotels that may make you change your mind, and experience the romance of the desert.

Amangiri in Canyon Point Utah
1. Amangiri in Canyon Point, Utah (US)
At this striking and yet discreet resort in America’s desert south-west, the architects have sculpted the facilities around the ancient bluffs, making it blend almost seamlessly with the landscape. Romantic suites open up to expansive views of the Wild West landscape. There are only 34 suites so the guest count is tiny. This means that at the pool, you’ll not only get your own pool lounger and plenty of space but you might even get your own sun-bathing plinth. Romantic solitude on your honeymoon or getaway for two? Bliss.
