There’s nothing more romantic than staying in a good hotel, and waking up to a spectacular view with the person you love.

It’s one of those moments that we never truly forget, and makes the case all the more stronger for choosing a room view each time we travel.

The next time you think about booking a trip for two, take a look at these romantic rooms with a view, and create some new memories.

Villa Alkhozama, Marrakech

A romantic and luxury retreat awaits at the ridiculously stunning Villa Alkhozama, located around 15 minutes from the Medina in the Palmeraie.


If you’re looking for somewhere away from the dizzying streets of Marrakech, this place is perfect. Some of the best holiday activities are also nearby, including camel riding and golf.

The private villa comes with two bedrooms — the master bedroom actually opens onto a terrace with a 12-metre pool and a luxurious day bed!

What’s more, the villa comes with its own hammammm and unlimited spa treatments. The only question now is, where do I book?!

Madikwe Game Reserve, South Africa

Private luxury lodges, stunning views and observing animals in the wild are all on offer at Madikwe Game Reserve. The Reserve is situated in South Africa but is close to bordering Botswana.


From the lodges you can choose from, the 3 at the Madikwe Safari Lodge are perfect for couples. Private, secluded and each suite in the lodge comes with its own plunge pool.

Song Saa private Island, Cambodia

If you’re in the mood for a South-East Asian isolated paradise, then Song Saa private Island in Cambodia may just be for you.

There are 24 spacious luxury villas to choose from, each with a private pool and postcard-perfect views to drool over.

The Ocean-View Villas come with a king-sized four-poster-bed, a private beach deck with sunbeds and a fully stocked mini-bar! Ooh yes, this will be one memorable trip.

Seascape, New Zealand

On the east coast of the South Island is a retreat so remote, its tagline is ‘Stay where the world can’t find you’.

Annandale is a real coastal working farm spread over 4,000 acres of land, featuring 4 luxury villas. For the ultimate romantic hideaway, you’ve got to stay at the Seascape.

Only accessible from Annandale by helicopter (!) or 4WD Annandale vehicle, this is one landscape you’ll never forget.

Pigeon Bay

The villa is a secluded open-plan retreat that overlooks the curved-shaped private bay in the distance. Along with a super king-sized bed, guests are treated to an outdoor lounge with fireplace as well as an luxurious outdoor spa with a view of the bay.

Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, Finland

In the northern part of Finland on the road to the Arctic Sea, is an igloo spectacle that has to be seen to be believed.

The enchanting Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort in the Finnish region of Lapland is a great location to snuggle up together beneath the stars.


Choose to stay in one of the famous glass igloos, or a cosy log cabin, while you try to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights.

To avoid disappointment, the glass igloos are only available to book for the Northern Lights season (around 24 August to the end of April). If you do want to stay during the other months, the resort has plenty of cosy alternatives.
