International travel experts Mr & Mrs Smith round up 10 of the world's most romantic bedrooms

10. La Suite, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 

Picture the scene: a cliff-top villa in Joatinga —the Beverly Hills of Rio—where floor-to-ceiling windows and a huge grandstand terrace give way to a panorama of Brazil's high-drama megalopolis. The turquoise blue of the Atlantic Ocean encircles the Cagarras islands to one side, and to the other, a jungle-fringed swathe of Rio's trademark beaches Leblon and Ipanema sweeps toward Sugar Loaf Mountain, where the iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer punches into the sky. Confess: your romance radar is tuning in already. La Suite is lovingly owned and styled by Frenchman François-Xavier Dussol, who dabbles with a unique blend of contemporary L.A. chic and classic Gallic elegance. Book into the Black Suite for a window on the world atop this carnivalesque city; or try the spacious Purple Suite boasting hardwood floors, an antique French dresser and a magnificent amethyst marble bathroom, crowned by a double-headed steam shower.
