Three Romantic Hotel Picks for Valentine’s Day
There’s nothing quite like holing up in a lovely hotel with your loved one for a few days or more, and we’ve picked out some of our favourite, tried-and-tested favourites in which to do so, whether you’re looking for a short hop abroad or are in it for the long haul. But we have many more suggestions than these, so just ask your Travel Counsellor for our other inspiring recommendations all around the globe.
Mykonos Blu, Greece
Imagine a blissful stretch of private sands (part of famous, Blue Flag awarded Psarou Beach) with changing cabins, loungers and waiter-service food and drinks and rooms, plus suites, apartments and villas in low-rise stone bungalows styled after the typical Cubist dwellings of the Cyclades – some sharing a pool and some with their own. If this isn’t the perfect romantic Greek getaway, we don’t know what is. If you can tear yourselves away from this idyll, don’t miss the likes of fishing caique trips, private water taxis to island beaches, Jeep safaris, and horse-riding, all organised to your exact spec by the lovely resort concierge.
This fabulous boutique resort deservedly ranked among the first 10 of TripAdvisors’ 2022 Top 25 Hotels for Romance in Asia, luring couples with the likes of full-moon beach dinners and champagne breakfasts. It’s an adult-only, all-villa affair, ensuring a true get-away-from it all feel – although it can be sociable too, with live bands, DJ sets, Maldivian cultural shows and ocean discovery shows. Our favourite thing of all here is the award-winning spa with its signature rituals using organic island-grown coconut, including couples’ treatments.
Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort
This is another adult-only boutique retreat that impresses us for several reasons, including its setting on the gorgeous Eagle Beach – the island’s best-known – and the fact that its spa gives the option of massages in an an ocean-view cabana on the beach. Many of the therapies, which include couples’ treatments, feature natural local ingredients such as coconut milk and aloe. There’s also a wildly romantic oceanfront restaurant with a chef’s-table experience, a beach bar and movies under the stars.
