1 of 6 1/6

Velaa Private Island

The Maldives

Sleep: Velaa Private Island, one of the best private islands to rent around the world, has a number of beautiful villas, but the Romantic Pool Residence is perfect for Valentine's. Only accessible by boat, this one bedroom escape is suspended above a lagoon with stunning ocean views. It has its own Jacuzzi, swimming pool, gym and spa, as well as a private chef and butler.

Eat: Choose from pan-Asian cuisine at Tavaru in an extraordinary semi-open structure, European dishes at the island-like Aragu, or a sumptuous wood-fired pizza from Athiri. For evening drinks head to the stunning Cru Champagne bar or descend into the decadent wine cellar to taste some rare vintages.

Unwind: Partake in a yoga or meditation class before curling up together in the library with a good book and a cup of coffee. Additionally, the spa offers a huge range of treatments, including a couple’s massage — enjoy all of the spa facilities with a bottle of Champagne or a fresh juice.

Play: Spend your days at the Velaa Golf Academy or indulge in a romantic escape on board the hotel’s luxury traditional Batheli. The hotel offers unparalleled diving as well as plenty of water sports to dabble in. Finally, if you fancy a spot of retail therapy, there are a number of luxury retailers for you to peruse at your leisure.
