We’ve put together our top five ultimate dining experiences that are guaranteed to knock your socks off. From the Great Wall of China to the biggest cave in the world, we’ve scoured the globe for the most impressive, most romantic and most magical dining locations for you to enjoy. So why not toast that special occasion and make your trip unforgettable: these experiences come with wow-factor guaranteed.
THE GREAT WALL, CHINA
The Great Wall really needs no introduction, but just in case you didn’t know, it is one of the largest and most famous historical sites throughout the globe. Get your camera ready because this experience comes complete with iconic Kodak moments galore. Imagine dining atop your own private Great Wall watchtower surrounded by nothing but emerald green mountains? Sound good? We thought so too. But to really turn the romance up a notch, we can also arrange some live music to serenade you while you dine. You won’t find a romantic meal on a grander scale than this.
THE NORTHERN LIGHTS, ICELAND
For staggering beauty and sensational landscapes, you really can’t beat the glacial realms of Iceland. Whether you choose to dine beside an indigo lagoon dotted with floating icebergs, or on cliff tops surrounded by glittering, icy waterfalls overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, you’re be sure to find your own private slice of winter wonderland. We’ll keep you snug in a luxury tent with your personal butler at your beck and call and to top off your evening, you can step outside to catch the Northern Lights dancing overhead. Simply magical.
SON DOONG CAVE, VIETNAM
The depths of the world’s largest cave may not be the first thing that springs to mind when you’re looking for a romantic dinner, but wandering through corridors of ancient columned stalagmites through to this vast chamber is sure to take your breath away. Discovered in 2009 and only accessible by boat, there are still parts of the Son Doong cave yet to be explored, so you can really feel as if you’re venturing into a lost world. Here you can chow down in your own Cave of Wonders surrounded by hundreds of flickering candles while bats waltz on the cave ceiling high above you.
ANGKOR WAT, CAMBODIA
If you’re a fan of ancient history then how about an evening sipping champagne under the stars in one of Cambodia’s most treasured archaeological wonders? Tangled deep within Siem Reap’s tropical forests, the majestic temples of Angkor Wat offer mystical romance unparalleled. Follow candlelit paths through their historical splendour and feast like ancient Khmer royalty on gourmet delights based on aeons-old Khmer Empire recipes. We’ll arrange your own private waiter and traditional musical performances to provide entertainment fit for a king.
UBUD HANGING GARDENS, BALI
When nothing but supreme luxurious pampering will do, the Ubud Hanging Gardens are top of our list. One of Bali’s best kept secrets, this sumptuous hideaway huddled between smoky volcanoes wrapped in verdant rainforest is about as decadent as you can get. Sample local delicacies served by your personal waiter under the gentle glow of oil lamps. For some Zen-like indulgence, take an after-dinner stroll through tropical rainforest to the holy water temple where a priest will perform a purification ritual, followed by a moonlit foot massage on the riverside bamboo deck. The perfect ending to an exotic adventure.
