While romance can certainly come at any time of the year, there’s no day more appropriate to celebrate your love than February 14. Go all out with these great Valentine’s Day packages perfect for that someone special in your life.
Time & Place rentals
Luxury vacation rental curator Time & Place has designed two packages for an over-the-top Valentine’s Day in Beverly Hills or the original city of love, Paris. Couples will ride to and from Modern Villa Beverly Hills, a four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath home with panoramic views of downtown Los Angeles in a Rolls-Royce Phantom. During your weeklong stay, enjoy a one-hour Top Gun Experience in an L-39 Albatros Fighter jet, a private helicopter tour of Los Angeles’ favorite sites (Griffith Observatory, Dodger Stadium, among others), and a seven-course “ultimate caviar experience” from Petrossian with a menu customized just for you. Of course, there’s a Hollywood glam squad as well. The package is complete with a celebrity artist makeup session from Anton Khachaturian and a hairstyling session at José Eber Salon in Beverly Hills. Price: $40,000.
True romantics won’t want to miss a four-day weekend in Paris in one of the brand’s 50 unique apartments, ranging from a 13th century abbey to a terrace apartment along the Seine. Start off with a Dom Pérignon welcome reception to get acquainted with your home-away-from-home and concierge before heading off to a personal scent-making session with Francis Kurkdjian, creator of scents for designers such as Dior, Guerlain, Armani and more. You’ll ride in style to the weekend’s entire events with a personal chauffeur in a luxury car of your choice such as an antique Mercedes-Benz. The weekend continues with a private tour of the Louis Vuitton House, a shopping spree with a $10,000 gift card good for some of Paris’ best boutiques and a customized chocolate massage at Four Seasons Hotel George V to unwind after a long day of shopping. You’ll dine in style, too, with a personalized tasting menu at renowned restaurant Epicure inside Le Bristol hotel, in addition to a private champagne excursion to Épernay with a tour and tasting topped off with a gourmet lunch prepared by chef Eric Frechon and sommelier Marco Pelletier. Price: $50,000.

Upon arrival, enjoy accommodations in the resort’s honeymoon villa, aptly named The View, and an overnight on the hotel’s private 50-foot yacht with a four-course menu prepared by the resort’s executive chef, Anthony Reynolds, along with senior chef de cuisine Jim Driskell.

The Langham Huntington, Pasadena, California
Channel your inner Kanye West with the Proposal of The Century package from The Langham Huntington.
