It’s that time of year again: Valentine’s Day. If you feel like getting in the spirit of love, then why not celebrate the most romantic time of the year with an unforgettable getaway? Whether you want to go all out with your Valentine, get inspiration for next year, pop the question, get hitched, enjoy your honeymoon or renew your vows, choosing any of these luxe destinations will seal the deal in true romantic style.
Hotel Métropole Monte Carlo
Although a Parisian getaway with kissing on top of the Eiffel Tower doesn’t sound too shabby, you can opt for a less cliché trip for two. Experience the true romance of Monte Carlo, a premier destination for celebrities and European royals. This French hot spot could just be the place to fall in love all over again. The Hotel Métropole Monte Carlo awaits your presence with the best of French romance. During February and March, the hotel offers an “I Kiss Metropole” program that provides several couple’s packages to choose from. In addition to smelling the daily fresh red roses around the hotel grounds, guests will receive flowers and a welcome bottle of champagne. They can also plan a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner at the Restaurant Joël Robuchon Monte-Carlo or even take a private helicopter ride à deux over the Principality and French Riviera.
Bahama Beach Club
Named as one of the top ten beaches in the world by National Geographic, the Bahama Beach Club is the perfect destination for a Valentine’s Day wedding. The Bahama Beach Club and Treasure Cay Beach and Resort will make all of your wedding dreams come true in a pristine setting of three and a half miles of powder white beaches and azure waters. Couples can create their picture-perfect wedding on an island beachfront location with a tropical palm wedding arch. The romance will radiate with the sound of the Caribbean waters and the glow of the sun setting in the background. After couples say their “I do’s,” they can celebrate with family and friends with a candlelit champagne toast around the resort’s pool floating with glowing candles. The bride and groom can then party into the night with a Bahamian-style buffet or an intimate sit-down dinner in true paradise.
Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui
For a romantic and especially relaxing couple’s retreat, traveling to Hawaii is always a good idea. The Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui offers authentic Hawaiian cultural experiences with warm and personal service that exhibits the true essence of aloha. For a hot honeymoon, the bride and groom can experience world-class amenities and activities, including 37 exclusive two-story villas in which guests can privately enjoy their getaway. Couples can mix relaxation and recreation at an adults-only pool, two whirlpools, a swim-up bar for tasty cocktails and the Spa Kea Lani for a romantic Hale Ne’ehope (a couple’s massage in a private outdoor cabana). While traveling throughout the 22 acres of lush tropical landscape, you will find enchantment with your love.
Capella Pedregal, Cabo San Lucas
If you really want to flee from it all with your beau, a secluded resort such as the Capella Pedregal in Cabo San Lucas is the perfect choice. Known for its hidden beauty, this Mexican coast resort is lavish, relaxing and most definitely romantic. In the spirit of this passionate time of year, the Capella Pedregal is offering their Heart to Heart-Celebration of Romance package throughout February. This exclusive package includes an Ocean View Room for two nights, complimentary breakfast each morning, dinner for two at the signature restaurant Don Manuel’s, a private couple’s massage at the Auriga Spa, a romantic rose petal turndown with candles one evening, and a beautiful artisan glass-blown heart to keep as a memento.

Throughout February, the resort offers a Love on the Rocks package including everything you will need for your special ceremony. With this package, you will receive accommodations in the luxurious 2,400-sq.-foot Grand Presidential Suite adorned with rose petals and candles and including a private butler. The private renewal of love ceremony will take place under the resort’s 100-year-old banyan tree, which is sacred in many religions and symbolizes eternal life. The couple will receive his and her eternity diamond rings by Michael “F” Collection, an evening aboard a 150-foot luxury yacht with a private captain, and an intimate gourmet candlelit dinner prepared by a private chef on board the yacht.
