ELOPE SANI DUNES, HALKIDIKI, GREECE
If you fancy indulging in some sun, sea and spa-time as a couple (or even marrying on the sand, once you’re suitably blissedout), this luxe hotel could be just what you’re looking for. An exclusive enclave of designer rooms and suites, set in jasmine-scented gardens between the beach and the buzzy restaurants of the Sani Marina, it’s a popular wedding destination – and the in-house team can arrange everything from simple ceremonies on the beach to grander, tulle-covered gazebos under which to say ‘I do’.

And the magnificent D Spa is the perfect place to be pampered à deux – it offers skin-brightening Anne Semonin treatments in a special couple’s suite complete with its own steam bath, private Thai massage cabin and fitness studio.
There are invigorating ice facials with soothing cryotherapy ice cubes that take the sting out of sunburn, energising back treatments with heated mud packs, and thigh-slimming Xerolipo bodysculpting – a machine that uses laser and electrical currents to shift stubborn pockets of fat. With sunshine more or less guaranteed even in autumn months, this is the ideal spot to start married life, looking (and feeling) relaxed and refreshed.
