For simplicity, a trip to the El Nido Lagen Resort in the Philippines will take your breath away. Located on a tranquil island (with a gorgeous green forest and rocky limestone cliffs as your backdrop), this hot spot is the perfect place for romance, rest and rejuvenation. There are 18 water cottages to pick from, which all overlook a clearwater lagoon, and each offers a magnificent view of the sunset. As for activities, there’s plenty to do: indulge in a relaxing spa treatment (we suggest the traditional Filipino hilot massage–a deep tissue treatment) or partake in their ‘discover nature’ package, which allows you to kayak, bird-watch, snorkel and stargaze. If you’re in an adventurous mood, there are guided eco-tours to other islets, where you can explore caves and enjoy a picnic lunch for two.
