February is often associated with Valentine's day (cue rolling of eyes or whoops of joy), but we believe that romance can be celebrated all year round. Here are our top romantic holiday destinations to set the mood.
Most romantic hotel
We cannot emphasise just how romantic Capri is. Explore by boat or by foot, swim in blue grottos and enjoy incredibly good Italian food. The JK Capri is one of the most stylish hotels in Europe, situated on a cliff-top overlooking the Marina Grande (main harbour) of Capri, with views across the Bay of Naples to Mount Vesuvius.
Most romantic view
Wake up at dawn and take a hot air balloon ride over the temples of Bagan in Burma, there are few things more memorable than a bird's-eye view of the 2,142 temples and pagodas as the balloons glide over glittering stupas.
Most romantic table
Enjoy dinner overlooking Zighy Bay on the Musandam Peninsula in Oman. With the rugged Hajar mountains in the background and a stretch of sandy beach in front, it is a magical place to watch the sun go down.
Most romantic thing to do
Curl up in bed under a glass-roof igloo to watch the Northern lights in Finland.
Most romantic bed
This private camp at the Wolwedans lodge in Namibia allows a spectacular view of the desert scenery. Lie out and watch the stars and wake up to fresh air and a warm sun rise.
Most romantic overall destination
The Maldives is without question the ultimate destination for romance. Each of the many islands offers privacy and relaxation surrounded by powdery white sand beaches and atolls of crystal clear waters. Contact Original Travel
