5 romantic retreats for Valentine’s Day

Valentine's DayLooking for unique romantic retreats where your clients can celebrate Valentine’s Day? Whether their love lifts them to the mountains, sends them to the sea, or the call of adventure claims their hearts, you’re sure to find a gem to delight any romantic whim among these top five dreamy destinations.

Seaside snuggles

Couples looking to celebrate their love with a tropical twist will treasure a chance to slip away to a private villa at Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort on the exotic South Pacific island of Fiji. When they’re not snorkeling and swimming in the warm, turquoise water, they’ll enjoy lavish couple’s spa treatments like the Koko Rapture, an organic cacao wrap with banana leaves, applied in a beachside bure overlooking serene Savusavu Bay. Lovers can snooze on hammocks beneath the shade of swaying palms and heed the siren call of sugar-sand beaches that invite long, relaxing strolls. The resort’s Romantic Escape Package sends couples on a private island getaway that includes a chef-prepared picnic complete with chilled Champagne.

Mountains of love

Love is in the mountain air when you send couples on a journey to Pike’s Peak in Colorado. They’ll enjoy fireside yoga classes, soaks in hot springs, romantic carriage rides, and a lantern-lit tour in Cave of the Winds. Let them admire the area’s stunning granite formations during a horseback ride or savor the royal treatment during high tea at the Queen’s Parlour Tea Room inside a castle. Enhance their experience with a stay at The Cliff House at Pike’s Peak. This historic hotel offers two different romance packages along with its unique blend of Victorian elegance and contemporary comfort. In addition, couples can toast each other with selections from an extensive wine cellar and share nibbles from a special Valentine’s Day menu.

Desert adventures

Your romance-seeking clients will succumb to the allure of hot desert romance with a trip to Boulders Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona. Inside their private casita, couples can cozy up to a wood-burning fireplace or take in vibrant desert sunsets from their deck or patio. And those with an adventurous spirit will revel in all the available hiking, golfing and swimming. Arrange a moonlit bike tour, a Grand Canyon air tour, or a hot-air balloon ride over the breathtaking Sonoran Desert. Satisfy the need for an adrenaline rush with a desert Hummer ride, or by arranging a rappelling adventure down massive granite boulders. The resort offers a Love at the Boulders Package that includes unlimited fitness classes and three hours of pampering in the spa’s Sun Suite.

Fur-ever in love

For your client couples who can’t fathom leaving their beloved four-legged “babies” behind, book them all at the Kinzie Hotel, located in the heart of Chicago’s vibrant River North neighborhood. While their pooch gets pampered with gourmet treats and doggie spa amenities, puppy parents can learn how to handroll chocolate truffles, take a salsa lesson, ice skate together in Millennium Park, or discover the city’s architecture and history during a thrilling Chicago Helicopter Experience. Ignite Glass Studios offers a hands-on glassblowing experience, where each couple works together to create a single glass heart of their own design. And the Kinzie Hotel ensures love is in the air for pet owners too, with their Chicago Romance and racy Love Potion #9 packages.

Date in Dublin

How about a visit to St. Valentine? When you arrange a trip to Dublin, your clients not only experience Ireland’s spectacular rolling hills, enchanting castles and cobblestone streets, but they can visit 13th-century Carmelite Church on Whitefriar Street. Inside they’ll find a special shrine and the remains of Valentinus, patron saint of love. And on Valentine’s Day, a special “blessing of the rings” ceremony is held there for couples intending to marry. Your clients can discover the love-centered street art on Love Lane in Temple Bar, and visit St. Patrick’s Cathedral where author Dean Jonathan Swift is buried beside his secret love, Stella (a.k.a. Esther Johnson), the subject of his many famous love poems. Book clients into a spacious suite at The Spencer Hotel, right in heart of Dublin. They’ll love the Romantic Break Offer, cuddling over cocktails by the Italian stone fireplace and taking soothing strolls hand-in-hand through the Zen Garden, or along sparkling River Liffey.
