A romantic getaway is a little bit different to any other require – it’s a time for the two of you to kick back and relax, but also to get closer, reacquaint yourselves with each other, and have a good giggle. For this reason alone, a romantic getaway needs to have a few luxurious elements that any other vacation might not require. Yes, it might cost a little bit more, but you both totally deserve it. If you’ve got a romantic getaway on the horizon, consider adding one or two of these elements for the ultimate couple’s relaxation vacation.
Book the honeymoon suite
Even if it’s not your honeymoon, if you can afford it, why not? There is no other room in the hotel more geared towards romance and intimacy, so you might as well go for it. And if it’s been a few years since your honeymoon, why not relive it in style?
Travel in style
Traveling from the airport to your hotel, and even around the area in which you’re vacationing, can be quite stressful without car hire, particularly if you choose to travel by public transport. Why not, for a treat, hire a limo service to give you the luxury travel you deserve? You’ll never have to worry about getting from A to B, and you’ll feel like royalty.
Watch the sun rise and set
If you can deal with the early rise, seeing the sun rise over your island, the beach, or the city can be really stunning, and thoroughly romantic. If you’ve had a heavy night the night before, or you’re just not morning people, then the sunset also works. Lazing on the beach with a cocktail after a hard day of relaxation with the person you love is the ultimate unforgettable luxury.
Take a couple’s massage
We all need some of the stress of everyday life working out of our shoulders, and a day in the spa is by far the best way to feel pampered and relaxed. A couple’s massage is a great time to relax and bond together, while someone works out all the kinks and knots in your shoulders. Check out what treatments your spa offers, or look further afield at some of the other spas in the area. You both deserve it.
Seek out the romantic restaurants
A candlelit meal is the ultimate romantic experience, and a vacation is the best way to find a tucked away taverna with the best food on the island. Sharing a bottle of local wine and some delicious food is amazing, but when you add a touch of luxury you’ve got one of the most intimate and unforgettable experience, so make sure you do your research before you set off.
Keep a scrapbook
Keeping your memories safe after a lovely holiday is really important, and being able to look back on them fondly in years to come is amazing too. Keep the tickets and receipts for everything you do, everywhere you visit, and every romantic meal you share, and put them all into a scrapbook to look back on with fondness.
A romantic getaway only needs the two of you to be amazing, but when you add a touch of luxury, you can create something really special.
