A sunset picnic in a treehouse
Spending a night under the stars is special enough, but imagine being in a luxury treehouse, miles from civilisation, in the middle of the South African plains. At Lion Sands Game Reserve, your guide will escort you to your treehouse of choice, set high above the wildlife wandering below. They'll then leave you with a tapas-style picnic and a bottle of South African wine to enjoy beneath the stars. Lion Sands, South Africa
Dinner on a private island
Imagine having dinner on a deserted island. Maafushivaru in the Maldives is a perfect Indian Ocean island, made even more special by its tiny sister island, Lonubo. Hop on a traditional dhoni boat alongside a private waiter and chef who will cook you a meal while you take a romantic stroll around the island. You'll then be left alone to enjoy a truly romantic evening, just the two of you. Maafushivaru, Maldives
Dine on Bolivia's salt flats
Iconic Salar de Uyuni, the world's largest salt flat, is a truly unique destination. It's a spectacular sight when the sun's light shines across the vast, white landscape. To make a visit here even more memorable, you can stay in a classic Airstream caravan and enjoy the solitude of this landscape while enjoying a private dinner with nothing around you but the Milky Way above.
Be part of an unforgettable Canada adventure as you take off from Four Seasons Whistler's Heliport. The helicopter will take you to a remote glacier to sip on Champagne; and you can explore a spectacular ice cave and enjoy a cocktail, chilled with ice chipped from the glacier. Later, board the chopper to a private dining room where the Four Seasons' executive chef will create a sumptuous feast for you. Whistler, Canada
Barbecue in a grotto
Rayavadee is a stunning five-star hotel nestled between the cliffs and sea of Phranang peninsula. An incredible benefit of this location is the stunning natural limestone cave, known as the grotto, which faces the beach. Enjoy a beautiful sunset as you dine on the sumptuous nightly barbecue. With this spectacular setting and soft sand underfoot, this is the perfect romantic experience. Krabi, Thailand
A cave for two
Hotel Jardin Tecina has an enviable location on the incredible volcanic cliffs of the island of La Gomera. A local legend tells of a couple lost at sea, washing up on the rocks and invited to dine with a local cave dweller. The hotel has created a unique experience, where you can dine in a cave offering ocean and mountain views. It offers total privacy for two - even your meal arrives by a basket pulled up on wires. La Gomera, Spain.
Eat like the locals in Japan
Japanese food is known for its artistry and ceremony as much as its taste, so you should not miss the opportunity to dine in the traditional manner at a local Izakaya bar. Join the locals and sit on the floor on tatami mats before trying local specialities like Sashimi, Karaage chicken or Wagyu beef. Of course, be sure to try a sip or two of Japanese Sake before you leave. Highlights of Japan tour
Dine under the stars at Uluru
Translating as 'beautiful dune', Tali Wiru is an intimate dining experience in the vast outback of Australia's Red Centre. Astounding views of Uluru at sunset perfectly compliment Champagne and canapés before a world-class four-course dinner served around the fire pit. An indigenous local will join you after dinner to share stories of the incredible aboriginal culture. Uluru, Australia
