Top 10 places to ask: Will you marry me?

时间:2011-12-13 03:12来源:互联网 提供网友:罗罗布   字体: [ ]

   SINGAPORE - Asking someone to marry may be one of the most important questions of your life, and the right place can make it all the more memorable1.

  Boutique hotel travel specialists Mr & Mrs Smith (www.mrandmrssmith.com) have come up with a list of the top 10 hotels to propose.
  1. PALAZZO BARBARIGO, Venice, Italy
  This dramatic 18-room destination hotel adds a modern shot of plush velvet2, saucy3 feather-trim and moody4 mirrored wall to polished parquet5 floors and period details. In the bedrooms, the theme continues with minibars in deco-style cocktail6 cabinets. Sigh over Grand Canal views in one of the lovely Junior Suites8, which also have separate dressing9 and wardrobe areas. Then whisk your lover out of the door and straight onto the gondola10 you’ve arranged at the hotel’s marble-clad waterside landing.
  2. NOIR D’IVOIRE, Marrakech, Morocco
  At this ravishingly restored riad, the delight is in the detail: capacious beds and baths; real fires for winter nights; fresh oranges brought to your room each evening; squirreled-away bowls of nuts and dried fruit dotted around; giant swags of tasseled11 silk and linen12; and artisan toiletries presented in glass vials with silver caps. Add on a hammam, boutique, candle-lit courtyard and excellent chef, and you’ve already got romance with a capital ’R’. If you really want to push the love boat out, check into one of the Royal Suites, which have private roof terraces with plunge13 pools.
  3. CAYO ESPANTO, Ambergris Caye, Belize
  Three miles of the coast of Belize, this palm-fronded private-island resort is ultra-exclusive. It’s surprising, then, that it can also nurture14 such a laid-back and unpretentious air. Hidden among the palm trees on the Caribbean shore, its handful of luxurious15 villas16 offer a uniquely personalized level of service. Your every need is met by a houseman who’ll do everything from fix you drinks to accompany you on excursions - it’s like having your own genie17. Casa Ventana is set out to sea on its own wooden pontoon. It may be the smallest of the resort’s six villas, and lack the private pools of its neighbors, but who needs a pool when you’ve got the Caribbean on four sides?www.Examda.CoM考试就到考试大
  4. WILSON ISLAND, Great Barrier Reef, Australia
  With just six luxury tents set beside the sea on a tiny tropical islet, Wilson Island may just be the most romantic campsite on earth. You can gaze straight out at the ocean from the comfort of your bed, taking in the empty beach strewn with coral, and spend days draped around each other in a hammock big enough for two. If you’re planning to propose, you’ll be looking for Isolation18 - the most private of the island’s six luxurious beachfront tents.
  5. MOLLIES, Auckland, New Zealand
  Music, food and romance await at the elegantly attired19 Mollies, Auckland’s bohemian boutique hotel famed for its sociable20 soirees. With classic-meets-arty interiors dotted with pianos, regular opera recitals21, gourmet22 dining and a sensual spa, there’s a fairy-tale feel about this glamorous23 harbourside getaway. Seclude24 yourselves away in Room 8, a New York-style loft25 with views over the water.
  There’s an English elegance26 about the Crosby Street Hotel, a kitsch-but-classy boutique bolthole on a calm, cobble-stoned street in sassy SoHo. While away the days watching romantic films in the sexy screening room, curled up by the fireplaces in the luxurious lounges or making the most of the spectacular bar and restaurant scene in the NY neighborhood. Pick one of the Junior Suites on the 10th and 11th floors - their winning combination of height and huge warehouse27 windows will give you some of the best views in southern Manhattan.
  7. THE LOUISE, Barossa Valley, Australia
  Indulge your inner gourmand28 at the Louise, the Barossa Valley’s brightest star. Concern for guest satisfaction and food-and-wine passion have informed every decision at this South Australian retreat: privacy is paramount29, room facilities are state of the art, and the restaurant is truly outstanding. Hide away in No 29 - the best of the 10 suites revolving30 around the entrance piazza31. It has a private courtyard and terrace, spa tub, underfloor heating and recessed32 candle nooks in the bathroom, and an outdoor shower.
  8. LA RESIDENCE, Garden Route & Winelands, South Africa
  This mini, modern Versailles presiding over Franschhoek’s valley of vines has a contemporary shell and a romantic colonial interior. La Residence is filled with Persian rugs, exotic antiques and fine art works. This Winelands estate will make you feel as though you’ve been whisked off to your own private palace to live in the lap of luxury. White and gold Frangipani is the most tucked-away of the ground-floor suites and has a monumental four-poster bed, 18th-century French dressers and mirrored bathroom, complete with chandelier, roll-top bath and chaise longue.
  9. AMANKORA, Bhutan
  Not so much a hotel as a pilgrimage, Amankora consists of five luxurious lodges34 dotted around the remote Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan, set against a spectacular backdrop of plunging35 valleys, lush rice paddies, and mountaintop temples. Whether you make the full 10-day trip to visit each lodge33 or tailor-make your Bhutanese excursion to suit the time you have available, Amankora can arrange your travel and put together a program of mountain-trekking, temple-hopping, or spa pampering36 as you wish.
  10. HOTEL DE LA PAIX, Siem Reap, Cambodia
  The Babylonian-meets-metropolitan facade37 of this spectacular spa hotel offers just the faintest hint of what awaits inside. White is the shade of choice throughout, set against dark tiles and brooding monochrome images of temples and carvings38. The rooms have an understated elegance, the restaurant, Meric, is renowned39 throughout the city, and the breath-stealing majesty40 of Angkor Wat is just 10 minutes away into the jungle. Duplex Spa Suite7 346 is swoon-worthy, with an alfresco rooftop bath and enough space to host a cocktail party should you have something to celebrate.
