Mr & Mrs Smith's Top 5 Sexiest Bedrooms

If you’re looking for a romantic bolthole for your honeymoon, take a peek at boutique hotel specialists Mr & Mrs Smith – they know a thing or two about finding the perfect boudoir. In fact, they’ve done all the legwork for you by shortlisting the 20 Sexiest Bedrooms in the world for the Smith Hotel Awards 2014, the annual celebration of the world’s most stylish stays. I asked Smith honeymoon expert Fiona Bickmore for her top picks from those dreamy stays!

Roccia Suite at Bellevue Syrene, Sorrento, Italy

Carved straight into the rock, this Roman grotto has its own lift and a private terrace from which to enjoy unobstructed views of the Gulf of Naples. For me, its most spectacular feature is inside: a hydrotherapy massage pool at the foot of a vast four-poster bed draped all in white – it’s heavenly.

The Black Suite at La Suite by Dussol, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Each of this cliffside retreat’s seven rooms flaunts a unique colour scheme designed with thought and care. Ebony walls and a jet-black chandelier give the Black Suite seductive masculine appeal, but it’s airy and soft-edged, too, with a bright white canopied bed and floor-to-ceiling windows offering panoramic views over Rio and its glittering bay.

Water Villa 5 at Six Senses Ninh Van Bay, Nha Trang, Vietnam

This Water Villa is such a special hideaway, with a private deck for sunbathing, a rock-hewn plunge pool and a ladder that drops straight to the kaleidoscope of fish in this eastern stretch of Vietnam’s coast. My favourite thing about this room is the bath – a deep, wood-panelled affair with sweeping sea views – that’s just made for watching the sun set over the sparkling waters.

On the unspoiled, less-visited shores of south-west Bali, the sublime minimalist Ocean Villas are set on glittering volcanic black sands. Cleverly designed with an open-to-the-sky inner courtyard, number 202 has a prime position for postcard-perfect ocean views and sunsets, and an outdoor poolside pavilion for lazing the days away.

Suite 3, Riad Farnatchi, Marrakech, Morocco

There’s a heady air of exoticism in Riad Farnatchi’s Suite 3, a sprawling Arabian-nights vision in marble, mirrors and paprika-red textiles. Soak in the black granite sunken bath, snuggle up by the open fireplace or recline on your private sun-kissed balcony – the beautiful people lounging by the emerald pool below will seem a world away.

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
