Love is in the air at this Thai rainforest canopy suite, judged the 'World's Sexiest Bedroom' ahead of Valentine's Day.

The Bird's Nest Villa at Keemla Resort in Phuket was described as "heaven" in the UK's annual Mr & Mrs Smith Hotel Awards.

"There are no hard and fast rules for creating the perfect boudoir," according to the boutique hotel collection. But the world's sexiest bedroom should "pull out all the stops to light your fire... it has to delight, excite and surprise."

We'll second that. Keemla's pool villas are loosely based on ancient tribe dwellings, and set just a short drive from Patong beach. Feeling giddy yet?

The Bird's Nest editions are the cherry on the cake, boasting woven wood walls and floor-to-ceiling glass overlooking the rainforest, mountains and sea, with four-poster beds, alfresco tubs and of course, your own private pool.

And the price? Rates start from €496 per night going to press.
