There’s nothing more romantic than escaping from everyday reality and there’s no better time to do it than Valentine’s Day. We found 10 love-inducing getaways that will inspire you to hit the road for an amorous rendezvous.
The Inn at Leola Village
Snuggle up with your sweetie by your in-room fireplace at this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hideaway in the Pennsylvania countryside. The Inn at Leola Village, a former tobacco farm, oozes charm and a relaxed, homey vibe.
Settle in for a romantic respite from the winter chill with the Forbes Winter Escape package, which sets the mood with discounted room rates and six long-stemmed roses.
Start the evening with an elegant meal at onsite restaurant Elements. After dinner, a rose-petal turndown featuring chocolate-covered strawberries and bubbly awaits.
Book a Spa Casita for close proximity to the desert oasis’ Four-Star The Sanctuary Spa and views of the lovely Paradise Valley from a private balcony.
Montage Palmetto Bluff’s Lowcountry Romance package, available in February only, provides a stay in an idyllic modern-country room, dinner and breakfast, and a welcome amenity of champagne and chocolate truffles.
The $200 spa credit ensures that you can take advantage of specials like the afternoon fondue class, wine tastings or romance-minded spa treatments (hello, raspberry chocolate pedicure!).
Whiteface Lodge Resort & Spa
Want a rustic romantic retreat without actually roughing it? Head to this scenic Four-Star resort in Lake Placid, New York, for the Ultimate Luxury Package for Two. Enjoy amazing amenities — and the company — amid the backdrop of the Adirondacks.
The deal includes a two-night stay, two massages, a three-course dinner at Kanu and wine and cheese upon arrival. Nightly s’mores are perfect for snacking in front of the fireplace of your cozy-meets-luxe room.
The Langham, Hong Kong
Hong Kong is a bustling city but this Five-Star hotel knows how to create a sultry atmosphere, especially with its Suite Romance package. The deal includes pretty much everything you need for a sensuous stay: one-bedroom suite accommodations, a bottle of champagne, in-room breakfast and a dining credit at several restaurants.
As if that deal weren’t enticing enough, a number of eateries on property will cater to canoodling couples with themed selections in February. From T’ang Court (special six-course meal) and The Bostonian (five-course holiday menu) to Palm Court’s 50 Shades of Pink afternoon tea, The Langham, Hong Kong feeds into the affectionate occasion with a host of culinary options.
Meadowood Napa Valley
Napa may be the quintessential romantic getaway, but there’s nothing ordinary about this Four-Star resort in dreamy St. Helena. The sophisticated farmhouse-style rooms feature stone fireplaces, and most have private decks with glorious views.
Add the Art of Romance special, and you’ll get all the fixings for an incredible Valentine’s Day getaway: spa treatments, daily breakfast, local sparkling wine and chocolates.
The Cape, A Thompson Hotel
An easy, quick getaway makes for a more romantic one (especially when the view from your private balcony is of Cabo San Lucas’ Monuments Beach), and The Great Escape promotion at this new Thompson Hotel delivers just that.
Get swift, round-trip airport service, daily breakfast and access to the airport’s VIP lounge. At the upscale casual-chic resort, spend the day in a beachside spa cabana and the evening at the top-notch onsite restaurant Manta.
Fairmont Mayakoba, Riviera Maya
This Mexican resort is ideal for couples looking to bask in the sun, eat well and have a little playtime, too. The Luxury Inclusive Getaway combines all of this and more — you will get a round-trip transfer between the airport and the Riviera Maya hotel, unlimited dining and premium beverage service at the property’s restaurants and bars, a bird-watching boat tour, a guided catamaran tour and more.
If you stay any time through March 21, you will also enjoy an added perk: a culinary class for two at Latin-Asian fusion restaurant El Pueblito Mayakoba.
Go glam at this Five-Star L.A. institution with the Valentine’s Break at Hotel Bel-Air package, which provides a $110 daily breakfast credit, a bottle of Veuve Clicquot to toast your sweetie and Wolfgang Puck chocolate treats.
Speaking of the famous chef, he’s also behind the enchanting onsite restaurant, Four-Star Wolfgang Puck at Hotel Bel-Air. While dinner isn’t included in the deal, an evening of alfresco dining by candlelight followed by a nightcap at the dark, sultry bar proves more than worth it.
Hammock Beach Resort, A Salamander Resort
Reconnect in laidback luxury at this resort on the Atlantic coast near Amelia Island. Here you can golf, cruise on a chartered boat, play tennis or explore the grounds on a bike.
Book the Perfectly Paired Romance bundle, available through December 28, and you’ll also get a champagne-and-fruit welcome, daily breakfast and a couples massage.
