So, leave the mini disco, the sandcastles and the crowded water parks behind, and come with us into a world of tranquillity, fine dining and peace.

We’ve put together some of the best couples only holiday destinations from around the world. Ssh, just don’t tell the kids.

Galley Bay Resort & Spa, Antigua

If you are truly looking to get away from it all, the relaxed and tranquil environment of the Galley Bay Resort & Spa is the perfect hideout for couples.

It may not be the most opulent of Antigua’s properties, but it doesn’t really need anything fancy.

Think thatched cottage roofs and comfortable rattan sofas.

When you have the blue sky, a gorgeous beach, wonderful food and drink and hours of time on your hands, what more do you really need? This truly is one of the best adults-only resorts on the island.

With its minimum guest age of 18, huge pools, secluded beach and modern decor, this is the perfect place for adults looking to escape from noisy families, their own included!

This hotel is also perfect if you want to get away from the tourist-party nightlife in the heart of Cancun, and instead enjoy a quiet swim, dinner under the stars and plenty of rest and relaxation.

All aboard the Arcadia

Sensimar Royal Palm Resort & Spa, Spain
