Best for: safari seclusion
Lewa Safari Camp,
Where better to enjoy a back-to-nature romance than where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge vacationed prior to their engagement? Set in the foothills of Mount Kenya, this award-winning lodge's 12 open-air thatched rooms sit around a lounge and pool. Choose from 4x4 game drives and camel and horse trekking in the 65,000-acre conservancy, then end the day with a sumptuous massage.
Romantic touch: Watch the sun set over the savannah in front of a roaring fire. Rooms from KES29,542 per night; lewasafaricamp.com
Best for: misbehaving
Dark, sexy and mysterious, each room in this most romantic of hotels takes you on a global design journey: think birdcages and vintage trunks offset by sweeping drapery and cushions. Enticed by the hotel’s discreet, residential location, loved-up A-listers, such as the Beckhams, flock to check in when in town.
Romantic touch: The suites’ irresistible four-poster beds, decked in opulent fabrics, create the perfect hideaway for uninterrupted bliss. Rooms from £262 per night; blakeshotels.com
