Add in some champagne breakfasts, private dinners with your own personal chef, and daily yoga classes in the tropical setting, and a stay here is even more appealing. The only thing that might get in the way of the tranquil vibes? The local monkeys!

This boutique hotel has chic bedrooms and a cute library – perfect if you fancy snuggling up with a good book on your holiday.
