Up for some romance? These five sensuous boudoirs will surely put you in the mood for love
Reading time 3 minutes

A room ripe for seduction needs to do more than get the basics right. From a treehouse with a pool in Phuket to cliff-edge villas on the shores of Sumba, travel experts Mr & Mrs Smith have handpicked five seriously seductive hotel bedrooms that are guaranteed to get you in the mood...  

Keemala – Phuket, Thailand

Here’s where an intriguing mix of history and myth (loosely based on ancient tribal dwellings) meets a world of architectural anomalies. Keemala’s pool villas are tucked amongst glorious greenery with birds’ nests, seedpods and thatched hobbit holes as neighbours. The resort’s holistic philosophy goes beyond this eco-friendly ethos, too, so expect healing spa rituals, and healthy home-grown cuisine. Our favourite Tree Pool Houses are lined with bamboo and stand like elegant bird cages. The bedroom on the upper level offers unrivalled views: a full panorama of the rainforest from your four-poster king-sized bed.

Smith extra: A 90-minute Harmonising Massage for two in the spa

Nihi Sumba Island – Sumba, Indonesia

There’s something seductive about secret getaways on unexplored islands and Nihi Sumba Island hotel is no exception. Its Marangga villas are right on the cliff edge, with jaw-flooring ocean views, while the Kanatar Sumba Houses have upstairs bedrooms with a terrace among the trees. Although the open-air spa pavilions will give an out-of-this-world experience with the Nihi Oka Spa Safari (who doesn’t love stress-busting massages among peaceful paddy fields?), we’ll totally understand if you can’t bear to leave those alluring bedrooms.

Smith extra: A bottle of wine on arrival. SilverSmith and GoldSmith members receive a free room upgrade subject to availability; GoldSmith members also receive a 60-minute massage for each guest

Blakes Hotel – London, UK

At Blakes, modern decadence is writ large. The hotel brings guests around the world in style – each room is inspired by various far-off lands, such as Russia, India, and Turkey. And wherever you end up, you’ll be greeted by a variety of sexy, antique Biedermeier furnishings, French gilded antique swan beds, and luxe fabrics – all a testament to Anouska Hempel’s impeccable taste and astonishing attention to the most romantic of detail.

Smith extra: A bottle of Sommelier’s choice wine in your room and breakfast for two throughout your stay

La Residence – Garden Route & Winelands, South Africa

Presiding over Franschhoek’s valley of vines, La Residence Hotel is a mini, modern Versailles with a contemporary shell and a charming colonial interior. Everything here radiates romance: the monumental marble four-poster; the 18th-century French dressers; the mirrored bathroom complete with crystalline chandelier, roll-top bath and chaise-longue in our favourite white-and-gold Frangipani suite. Then there are those dreamy views of the vineyards and distant peaks from the Disa and Hibiscus suites that will leave you spellbound.
