We’ve tracked down the amazing places where those ‘in the know’ go on honeymoon... 

1. The Hanging Gardens of Bali
This seven-star (yes, seven!) boutique hotel is hidden away in the lush Balinese rainforest, surrounded by coffee trees and rice terraces on the banks of the Ayung River. The hotel pool appears to float in the treetops, while the 44 private villas are furnished with exotic fabrics and their own open-air dining areas. Magical is an understatement…
Book it: From £350 a night,


2. Casa Colonial, Dominican Republic 
Tucked away on the northern coast of this lush Caribbean island, the contemporary Casa Colonial has an infinity rooftop pool overlooking the sea and its own private beach. Treat yourself to a massage at the spa and dine overlooking the mangrove jungle – this is the ultimate in luxury.
Book it: From £196 a night,


3. Riad Dar More, Marrakech
This tranquil oasis in the heart of bustling Marrakech is a gem of a find – and totally affordable too! Tuck into traditional local dishes while dining on the terrace by candlelight, then head out into the medina for some souk action. Cookery lessons are also on offer, along with excursions to the breathtaking Atlas Mountains. 
Book it: From £35 a night,

4. Les Roches Rouges, France 
If you’re looking for a private paradise without an eight-hour flight, consider checking into one of the light and airy rooms at this chic French Riviera hotel. Perched on the coast at Saint Raphael with its own natural seawater swimming pool, lose yourselves in the understated luxury of this lesser-known Mediterranean gem. 
Book it: Doubles from £263 a night,


5. Boheme Hotel, Mykonos
This brand new, uber-stylish Greek getaway is the perfect hipster hideout that the crowds haven’t found yet. Sleek, contemporary décor sits against a backdrop of traditional white-washed walls and day beds line the terrace where you can take in the sunset over the Aegean Sea. Hang out at the chic poolside bar and enjoy an expertly-mixed cocktail – that’s heaven right there.
Book it: From £250 a night,

6. The Jalakara, Andaman Islands 
If you really want to get off the beaten track (we’re talking no TV or Wi-Fi here), bask in the laid-back luxury of this tranquil Andaman Island resort. Enjoy an open-air massage, laze in the garden hammocks or visit the nearby uninhabited island for your own private beach party. 
Book it: From £171 a night,
