Many couples go on honeymoon immediately after their weddings, but how many take the time out to go again? Doctors recommend couples do things in partnership such as going to bed at the same time, cultivating common interests, walking hand-in-hand or side-by-side and touching one another. These things are easily done on a couples’ retreat, where it’s likely you’ll remember why you chose one another to start with.
Holidays to the Dominican Republic are also popular because of their palm-fringed beaches and colourful marine life, particularly to the west of Puerto Plata and in the Sosua area, where there’s a variety of reef and deeper water wall diving available. One of the most romantic things to do in the DR is take a leisurely catamaran cruise to postcard-perfect Saona Island and have a barbecue lunch under the coconut palms.

If your style is on the larger scale, holidays to Goa are packed with natural wonders and have opportunities for windsurfing at Patnem beach, tasting fresh seafood on the beach in Majorda and hiking out from the Sahyadris (Western Ghats) to explore waterfalls, forests and a variety of unique wildlife. But for those who really like to get their pulses racing, Mambos – a slick, open-air beach club in Baga – hosts international DJs that fuse a variety of retro, trance and dance tracks that attract crowds from all over Goa.
There’s no denying that some of the best holidays are those where you can put your feet up and enjoy luxury service. Holidays to Bulgaria are gaining popularity – particularly in the Black Sea resorts, where the mix of fine golden beaches, mineral springs, historical sites and classy resorts is unrivalled. Try Golden Sands, Albena and Riviera near Varna in the north, while those who prefer warmer temperatures can opt for Sunny Beach in the south. Perhaps one of the most romantic resorts is Balchik, where the former residence of the Romanian Queen Maria is a must-see. Couples can wonder manicured seafront gardens and enjoy red desert wines flavoured with sweet honey and herbs. Nazdrave!
