Luxury hotels and resorts create special packages that are good for an overnight stay, a long weekend, or even more time to enjoy romance on and around Valentine's Day.
These packages and places are truly exceptional, thanks to opulent resorts with fabulous amenities or a location that is perfect for lovers.
Some of the packages are offered exclusively during February, while others are available year-round.
Emerson Resort & Spa, New York State
In New York's Catskill Mountains, the Emerson has an expansive spa that offers a variety of treatments in a private room for two. Since nothing's more romantic than getting engaged around Valentine's Day, the resort offers a two-night "proposal package" that includes:
- On-site proposal coordination
- VIP Couples Massage
- Private dinner for two in the Great Room
- Bottle of champagne
- Floral arrangement
Babymoon and elopement packages are also available at the Emerson, for soon-to-be parents and couples looking for an intimate, unforgettable wedding, respectively.
Boulders Resort & Spa, Scottsdale
A resort that looks like no place else on earth, the Boulders was designed to organically fit amidst the desert's massive rocky outcroppings and sky-tipping saguaro cacti.
The "Truly Boulders" package provides nightly accommodations in a Casita, Villa, or Hacienda with a wood-burning fireplace and private deck or patio. There's 20 percent off spa services and unlimited access to the spa facility, plus a $25 per person food and beverage credit (for maximum romance, use it to order room service). Additionally, the $35 daily resort charge is waived and complimentary valet or self-parking is available. If you're unable to get away in February, don't worry. This romantic deal is available all year long.
At Boulders, you can revel in the great outdoors, follow the trails, play golf or tennis, swim in one of four pools, go horseback riding, or even repel down massive granite boulders. Romantic evening activities include after-dark exploration tours, stargazing with a pro, and moonlight yoga or bike tours.
Fairmont Chateau Frontenac, Quebec City
The Fairmont Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City could easily be considered one of the most romantic hotels in the world. From the outside, the building looks like a hybrid mix between the Plaza in New York City and a European castle. Once you step inside, all of the luxury and amenities that you would expect from a Fairmont hotel unfold. For those looking to celebrate an unforgettable Valentine's Day, the hotel offers a Romance Package that provides everything you need.
In addition to accommodations, the package provides breakfast for two, chocolate-dipped strawberries, a half bottle of champagne, and two engraved champagne flutes with Le Château's logo to take home to commemorate your visit. If spending February in eastern Canada strikes you as being a bit chilly, know that the hotel's romance package is available year-round.
In addition to this romantic holiday, guests can also enjoy the city-wide Winter Carnival through February 16, 2020. Explore palaces sculpted from ice, take a ride through the city on a horse-driven sleigh, and take a stroll through the snow-covered streets.
Little River Inn, Mendocino
Few spots are more romantic than California's Mendocino Coast, where the ocean crashes outside while you snuggle in front of a fireplace or inside a warm whirlpool hot tub. Family owned and operated for three generations, Little River Inn has a familiar and friendly ambiance.
The Little River Inn's "Rustic Romance" package provides a two-night stay, tasty dinner for two, breakfast the next morning, and a map to the famous the "kissing bench" at the breathtaking Mendocino Bay Overlook. Provisions for you to share in the souvenir backpack provided include bottled water, lip balm, breath mints, and a sampling of the Inn’s rich fudge. The Rustic Romance package is available during the entire month of February 2020, excluding President's Day weekend.
Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort, Fiji
Couples are drawn to this remote resort in the South Pacific to experience beach and underwater adventures along with legendary Fijian hospitality in a beautiful, pristine setting. For Valentine's Day and beyond, the Romantic Escape package enables couples to stay for six nights but pay for four.
If adventure appeals, don scuba suits and go diving. The island is home to the most extensive variety of fish and coral in the world at the Namena Marine Reserve, one of the planet's top 10 dive sites. At the resort, you can become scuba-certified in one day.
Couples can celebrate their love by renting a private island. The resort provides private roundtrip transportation for the day plus a chef-prepared picnic and chilled champagne.
Why not incorporate chocolate into your Valentine’s Day in a non-caloric way at the spa? The Koko Rapture treatment is made with an organic cacao wrap and banana leaves and applied in a beachside bungalow overlooking tranquil Savusavu Bay.
The resort is family-friendly, but well-organized activity programs keep kids occupied from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Grand Palace Hotel, Latvia
Those looking for a romantic getaway in Europe usually flock to Paris, but Riga has all of the charm without all of the tourists. The up-and-coming capital city of Latvia sits on the Baltic Sea, and visitors are discovering the magic of its art-nouveau buildings, trendy restaurants, and picturesque scenery.
Guests at the Grand Palace Hotel are centrally located, making it easy to explore the cobble-stoned streets of Old Town Riga, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on foot. Step through the 19th-century facade and into a plush, contemporary interior. February is cold in Riga, but the hotel's heated floors and comfy beds invite partners to fully enjoy their time indoors.
The Grand Palace offers a year-round Romantic Offer, and couples who choose this get complimentary use of the sauna and steam room, priority reservations at the hotel restaurant, and deals on theater and opera tickets. Chilled champagne, a cheese platter, chocolate-covered strawberries, and other romantic touches await you in the room upon checking in, setting the mood for an unforgettable trip to Riga.
The Seagate Hotel & Spa, Florida
The Seagate Hotel sits right on the ocean, so it's easy to walk down for a sunset stroll along the beach. Guests also get exclusive access to the hotel's beachfront, so you and your partner can spend an intimate day together without the crowds. Relax and treat yourselves to a day in the spa for ultimate leisure, and indulge in a couple's massage to spend it together.
The Romance Package is perfect to book for Valentine's Day, a honeymoon, or just a romantic getaway. When you book at least two nights in deluxe accommodations using this deal, you'll receive a complimentary bottle of prosecco with chocolate-covered strawberries, in addition to discounts on spa services and rounds of golf.
