So print this post out and delicately leave it on your honey’s desk, drop whatever hints you need to to make this Valentine’s Day one to remember.
Nayara Springs – Arenal Volcano National Park, Costa Rica
Ranked one of the top 5 most romantic hotels in the world, we couldn’t talk about romantic getaways without covering Nayara Springs. Perched on a cliff in Costa Rica’s lush Arenal Volcano National Park, Nayara Springs is the perfect locale for the couple that is serious about unplugging and spending some serious quality time among Costa Rica’s breathtaking rainforest. Not only does the resort immerse you in the beauties of nature, it runs a completely sustainable and eco-friendly operation, so you and your eco-conscious honey can enjoy each other and your stay knowing that no environmental impact was involved. Nayara’s spa was also ranked #5 in the world, so prepare to be rejuvenated by their couple’s experiences like their “Nature Escape,” which entails a hot stone massage, purifying facial, sea salt, and 30 minutes of ultra-private relaxation time in the spa’s private, nature-tucked quarters.
The Setai – Miami Beach, Florida
Tucked on South Beach, the Setai is known for its dark, intimate feel and its ability to feel like an exclusive romantic retreat, while still being seconds away from the lively energy Miami Beach has to offer. Recognized as one of the city’s quintessential art deco landmarks, the Setai’s sleek modern design is sure to appeal the luxury-inclined in all of us. The hotel’s Ocean Suites are the way to go if you’re looking for an especially intimate Valentine’s Day getaway, as the suites are tucked away in the building’s private enclave and are furnished with fine, Asian inspired design elements, offer a fully personalized experienced, and feature stunning ocean views. When it comes to their spa, the Setai dubs its illustrious couples treatments, “ceremonies,” and if that doesn’t illustrate the importance of one-on-one time with your partner than we don’t know what will.
The Farmhouse Inn – Sonoma, California
Don’t let the name fool you, because the Farmhouse Inn is the crème de la crème of romantic hideaways. Tucked in the River Valley Forest of California’s wine country, the Farmhouse Inn houses 25 (yes you read that correctly) private suites and boasts five expert concierges – practically guaranteeing you the A-list quality, personalized service you crave on a romantic vacation. And if you and yours have a thing for wine (we hope you do) you’ll love the Inn’s Lost and Found Winery, and exclusive wine tours spanning all of Sonoma and Napa Valley. Your stay even includes a personal sommelier to guide you through all of the estates’ delicious offerings. If the wine amenities haven’t already sold you, the cozy but never kitschy design of the Inn’s cottage-style room are sure to do the trick. Just ask the oversized fireplace, steam showers and plush linens. Did we mention their on-site restaurant has a Michellin star? Sold.
