It’s the season of romance! And nothing says “love” like a luxury vacation just for you and your sweetheart. Want to stroll the streets of Paris? Or hide away on a tropical island? We’ve got the getaway for you – complete with romantic extras like spa access, seaside dining gazebos, and stunning surroundings.
Bungalows at Mauna Lani Bay, Hawaii
Let’s start with Hawaii, one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in the world. Whether you’re newlyweds or not, anyone who loves the sun and sand will be in Big Island heaven at the Bungalows at Mauna Lani Bay. If the word “bungalow” doesn’t already stir up romance in your mind, these features will: beachfront location, private pool and lanai, and tropical garden with rain shower. Top off your stay with a couples’ massage at the luxurious top-ranked Mauna Lani Spa.
Le Triomphe, France
Then, of course there’s Paris, where the romantic atmosphere is unrivaled. Put yourself at the center of it all with a stay at Le Triomphe, a lavish Parisian residence that overlooks like the Arc de Triomphe and is just steps from the Avenue des Champs-Élysées. Meander down the surrounding city streets by day, visiting museums and cafés. Then, sip Bordeaux on your private terrace in the evenings, or take in the City of Lights from various viewpoints on your private wrap-around balcony.
Smuggler’s Nest, St. Lucia
Some of the most romantic vacation places out there are much less known – which is part of what makes them perfect for a trip for two. Escape to St. Lucia, a Caribbean island bursting with natural beauty, for a stay at the breezy, open Smuggler’s Nest villa. Hidden away on a hillside, this home is surrounded by lush gardens and secret footbaths. Have a drink in one of two private gazebos – one overlooking the ocean – swim in your pool, or walk down to the beach.
Midtown Jewel 103, New York
If you love New York – or have never been! – take a romantic trip with your sweetheart to Midtown Jewel 103, an modern, luxury residence above Times Square. You’ll be right in the middle of all the city excitement, and walking distance from date nights at top restaurants, shows, and attractions. When you want to escape the crowds, retreat to your deluxe high-rise home, with mesmerizing views and a roof deck. Maybe you’ll enjoy a night in, for dinner in the villa’s beautiful formal dining room.
Motu Teta, Tahiti
The ultimate couples’ getaway? A private island. In Tahiti. Leave everyone else behind on a trip to Motu Teta, a villa that’s not just a home, but an entire island reserved exclusively for its guests. You’ll have nine sun-drenched acres in the South Pacific to yourselves, with endless stretches of sand and an onsite staff. Enjoy all meals prepared in traditional Tahitian style by your chef, and specialized island adventures – like fishing, picnicking, and shark watching! – with an excursion guide.
