Beloved for its beautiful beaches, screensaver-ready islands and rich culture, Thailand's Phuket is the stuff of romantic holiday fantasies. Hidden amongst the destination's palm-dotted shores, the five-star Cape Panwa Hotel invites couples on the ultimate tropical getaway, far from the crowds.

Occupying a former coconut plantation on Phuket’s south-eastern tip, this peaceful paradise is renowned for its elegant sea-facing accommodation, phenomenal facilities, and private beach. Also notable is the star-studded guest book, with Leonardo DiCaprio, Pierce Brosnan and Elizabeth Taylor (amongst others) enjoying the hotel’s myriad charms.

Famous as a movie set, this elegant Sino-Portuguese mansion-turned-restaurant pairs sensational Thai fare with enchanting beach views. For a magical evening, feast on Kang Nam Pla Wan (rock lobster with sweet and sour chilli sauce) and Khao Neow Mamuang (fresh mango with sticky rice and creamy coconut milk) before strolling hand-in-hand along the powder-soft sands.

Lovestruck sweethearts will also cherish a candlelit dinner on the hotel's private beach, created just for you by the hotel’s skilled chefs. While those hopelessly enamoured with their suite or villa will love the in-room dining option. Choices, choices...
