From an Emperor’s boudoir to an Arctic view, Condé Nast Traveller presents four seductive spots to rest your head:
ON THE SHORE - Feast on a gourmet picnic of aphrodisiac foods in an 18th-century four-poster set on a beach illuminated by oil lanterns at Hotel Tugu Bali. It’s a one-of-a-kind dining experience—just don’t leave any crumbs in the sheets.
IN AN IGLOO - Make like an Eskimo and snuggle up in your very own heated glass igloo at the Igloo Village Hotel in Finland. It offers views of the Northern Lights and the snow-covered landscape of Lapland from your bed. You’ll be rubbing noses till dawn.
IN A PALACE - Start a historic romance at the Napoleone Suite in the 16th-century Palazzo Ruspoli, where Emperor Napoleon III lived in 1830. Think of its vast silk-canopied bed as your empire for the night.
OVER THE WATER - Feel like your drifting with panoramic ocean views on the circular daybed at the W Retreat & Spa – Maldives. This bed is on the deck of The Ocean Haven, a 5,000sq ft over-water suite with floor-to-ceiling windows (that slide open), infinity pool, wraparound sundeck and glass-panelled floors.
