hotel

Aman

Venice, Italy

Oligarchs and megastars alike flock to this haven of opulence for canal-side frolicking. Where movie-star romance comes in the form of gilt stucco reliefs, Chinoiserie paintings and Tiepolo's cherub-packed ceiling fresco above a huge bed, it's no surprise that the Clooneys got married here.

Address

Calle Tiepolo 1364 Sestiere San Polo 30125

hotel

Cap Rocat

Mallorca, Spain

Make love not war at Cap Rocat's former military fort, clinging to a cliff in a peaceful pocket of Palma Bay. Best suited to the no-frills romancers, rooms are pared-down and perfectly serene.

Address

Carretera de Enderrocat 07609

hotel

Coqui Coqui

Yucatán, Mexico

A two-tower hideaway perched above an ancient ruined city, Coqui Coqui feels a little Jane-meets-Tarzan, what with the jungle, lagoons and caves that surround it. Book a suite with a view of pre-Columbian Coba ruins, which come with heart-fluttering effects.

Address

Coba Quintana Roo

hotel

Ett Hem

Stockholm, Sweden

Cosy quarters and a sense of homeliness, Ett Hem is a spot for couples who are more "comfortably in love with" than "crazy hot for" one another - just don't book twins beds or you've moved into another category entirely.

Address

Sköldungagatan 2 114 27

hotel

JK Place

Florence, Italy

While wanting to avoid any clichéd reference to EM Forster's Room with a View, it is virtually impossible when confronted with three floor-to-ceiling windows, opening onto a small balcony in front of the Basilica. The bedrooms at JK Place are a tribute to overstated love.

Address

JK Place Firenze Florence 50123

hotel

The Cliveden

Berkshire, UK

Stately and stoic, despite Cliveden's grandiose exterior the Berkshire residence breaks the mould in the surly seduction stakes; think less Mr Darcy and more John Profumo, who first laid eyes on Christine Keeler basking in Cliveden's pool.

Address

Cliveden House Taplow Berkshire SL6 0JF

hotel

The Monteverdi

Tuscany, Italy

Cobbled medieval streets and an ancient church build you up for a poetic romancing in this Italian hideaway. If that wasn't amorous enough, there are the ruins of a 12th-century castle, discovered by the owner, to role play damsels in distress in.

Address

Via di Mezzo, Castiglioncello del Trinoro Sarteano 53047

hotel

Palazzo Margarita

Basilicata, Italy

A rare baroque bolthole brought back to life thanks to The Godfather director Francis Ford Coppola, this rustic spot is sure to weaken the knees of those who visit, with its riches to rags to riches backstory.

Address

Corso Umberto I, 64 Bernalda 75012 Italy

hotel

Singita Lebombo

Kruger National Park, South Africa

Set on a cliff top overlooking the N’wanetsi River, we’re suspicious of anyone who doesn’t succumb to Singita Lebombo’s willing ways. Open fireplaces and outdoor showers raise the raunchy romance stakes.

Address

N'wanetsi River, Kruger National Park South Africa

hotel

Soneva Jani

Maldives

The va-va-voom villas at Soneva Jani span five islands and cater to those who find privacy the ultimate turn on. Exclusive overwater residences are sure to rev things up a few extra gears.

hotel

The Franklin

Knightsbridge, London

hotel

Uxua Casa

Bahia, Brazil

A sexy spot for the Brazilian elite, bed down at one of its 10 private casas, where the interiors are as succumbing as its beachside views. Careful in those hammocks - unless you fancy explaining broken ropes to the front desk.

Address

Praça São João Batista Quadrado Histórico Trancoso Bahia Brazil
