Be at one with nature whilst at King Pacific Lodge, British ColumbiaWith so many couples wanting to help support the environment, King Pacific Lodge is the perfect destination for a romantic green getaway for the eco-minded couple. Anchored along the shore of Barnard Harbour, Princess Royal Island has no permanent inhabitants or structures and this highly sensitive environment is moored in the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest, accessible only by seaplane (from Vancouver). King Pacific Lodge provides an all inclusive package meaning lovers need only have eyes for each other and the bears.  Voluntourism packages are also available for those who want to really give back.

Go a little Mayan in the sand and sun at Viceroy Riviera Maya, Mexico – Located along the pearlescent sands of the Caribbean Sea’s Maya coast, the Viceroy Riviera Maya is the perfect refuge for weddings, honeymoons or anniversaries.  Minutes from the beach yet offering complete seclusion with villas protected by dense jungle forest, the resort’s Shaman will protect you with his blessing.  Watch the shy spider monkeys come out to meet you or stay still to watch a jungle rabbit walk by.  Couples may depart from their haven to take a tour to ancient Tulum or stay close to luxuriate in the opulent Wayak Spa. Rates start from USD720 (GBP444 per villa per night). Magellan PR represents Viceroy Riviera Maya. Twitter address @ViceroyRM, Facebook/Viceroy Riviera Maya.

Love like a local at Shutters on the BeachSanta Monica– Rise to surf and sunshine at this iconic Santa Monica hotel, just grains of sand away from the water.   With spectacular ocean views, there are activities to match any and every taste from cycling, to snuggling on the beach (looked after by a beach butler) or diving into the art and culture of this diverse chic little city by the sea.  The gorgeous sunsets are made even sweeter with happy hour specials at over 50 Santa Monican bars and restaurants.  Rates at Shutters on the Beach start at USD425 (GBP262 per night).
