New Year honeymoon escapes

Escaping the ping of today’s digital culture can be the perfect remedy to havoc wreaked by wedding mania. Get away from it all with BASH’s top 3 paradise retreats, in Thailand, Indonesia and St Barths.

Koh Samui
Kamalaya

An secluded paradise offering bespoke wellness and nurturing, Kamalaya is the escapist’s dream. Known as the island of the coconuts, Koh Samui, is the third largest Thai island; surrounded by palm-fringed bays and jungle-covered hills, this holistic resort is as close to nirvana as you’ll get. Choose from a range of wellness programs that start from three- to fourteen-night stays. If your resolutions involve healing, cleansing and nourishing the mind, body and soul then this wouldn’t be a bad place to do it.

From €1,400 for a three night detox stay, kamalaya.com

St Barths
Christopher Saint Barth Pointe Milou

?Heaven?, ?paradise? and ?bliss? are just a few words used by reviewers to describe Hotel Christopher. Set in a botanical garden overlooking the sea, this newly-refurbished villa comes complete with rainfall showerheads, lava stone sinks and rather plush beds. With endless sea views and a vast choice of treatments on the menu at Spa Sisley, we can see what those reviewers meant.

Prices start from €450 per room per night, hotelchristopher.com

Indonesia
Tiger Blue Cruise

A trip aboard the Tiger Blue will take you on a true nautical adventure – with 1,500 islands scattered across the Indian and Pacific oceans, breathtaking scenery is always a guarantee. Charter this 34-metre timber yacht for exclusive use, or just book the cabins you need – FYI, the cabins look like the princess’s quarters in a pirate adventure. Either way, lounging on the deck and diving into that azure blue is going to be something you won’t forget easily.

Prices for (7 nights, based on 2 sharing a cabin) or charter exclusively from ?3,250 per day (based on 7 sharing) tigerblue.info
