BEST PLACE FOR AN AFFAIR
Where: Aleenta Resort and Spa, Phuket, Thailand
Ideal for: Frill-phobic romance-seekers who want to get away from it (and them) all.
Sexiest detail: The isolated elegance of the place.
The lure: Sometimes skin is in, and sometimes less is more—like at the effortlessly sexy and low-key new Aleenta resort on the quiet northeastern coast of Phuket. A short jaunt from Phang Nga Bay, it debuted last summer and has managed to stay under the radar—perfect for a secluded rendezvous. The wabi-sabi style rooms have an outdoors-inside aesthetic, including a view-hogging glass wall that can be folded back for maximum access. And since there's a private plunge pool for each suite, skinny-dipping is more than possible. You're certainly not going to run into anyone you know.
Sexiness factor: As secluded and exotic as a Brangelina vacation.
