Romantic vacations aren’t just for Valentine’s Day! Whether it’s an anniversary celebration or just a nice surprise, we’re here with a handy guide on planning romantic vacations for couples. We believe that romance isn’t dead, and with a little patience and forward planning, you can organize a truly special experience for you and your loved one to enjoy together. After all, experiences matter more than material things, and making memories to cherish far outweighs the feeling of receiving a gift that won’t get used! With our super easy steps, we’ll give you a helping hand when it comes to researching and deciding on romantic destinations and hotels, what sort of romantic surprises you can book for your other half and how to make sure it all runs smoothly.
Stage 1 : Research Romantic Vacations For Two
Location is important. You want seclusion and serenity to set the scene for your romantic getaway. When looking at hotels, you also want to check if they can organize romantic packages, gifts, hampers, flowers etc. When researching potential destinations for romantic vacations for couples, you want to find somewhere to stay where you can do activities and excursions together as well. For example: snorkeling, diving, surfing, hiking etc.
Here are our top 3 suggestions for beautiful romantic locations:
1. Ambergris Caye, Belize
Tranquility Bay Resort was practically made for romantic vacations for two! The stunning Ambergris Caye is a beautiful island in Belize, and Tranquility Bay is nestled in a secluded alcove of the island that is only accessible by boat. Situated right on the beach, it’s the best place to enjoy the sparkling Caribbean ocean and the abundance of activities that comes along with it. Not only that, but romantic gift packages are available that include private candlelit dinners on the beach, champagne, chocolates and flowers for the room; couples massages and more upon request!
2. Cappadocia, Turkey
As far as popular destinations go, Cappadocia is one of the best romantic vacations for couples! It is probably mostly famous for its mysterious caves that are dotted around the landscape of Cappadocia, sometimes referred to as “fairy hills”. The strange landscape looks most magical first thing in the morning, when hundreds of hot air balloons drift through the sky at sunrise.
3. Ubud, Bali
With lush tropical valleys and rice terraces, Ubud, Bali is a dreamy destination when it comes to romantic vacations for couples. A river that snakes through the province provides a chance for some adventure sports, and a short drive away is the famous Monkey Temple. The elephant cave of Goa Gajah is also not far, giving you plenty of beautiful and unique places to explore together.
Stage 2: Booking Romantic Vacations For Couples
When you are planning surprises for your other half, you don’t want to leave anything to chance. Any hotel worth its salt will happily make special arrangements when they get bookings for romantic vacations for two. However, always speak to a member of staff to arrange any gifts or surprises well in advance, so that they have enough time to plan and prepare as necessary. Make sure that you get the name of who you spoke to, and make a note of the date that you had the conversation as well. Ask them to confirm via email that the arrangements will be taken care of in due course and will be ready when you arrive.
Stage 3: Double Check & Confirm
Like we said, when it comes to romantic vacations for two, you don’t want to leave anything to chance and find out there’s a problem at the last minute. Always double check closer to the time that the staff have prepared what you booked, whether that be a wrapped gift, a bouquet of flowers, chocolates and champagne or a spa package. It’s very important to double check everything has been taken care of before you go, just in case anything got lost in translation, forgotten or there was a lack of staff communication when you originally booked. If any problems arise, you should have noted down the name of who you spoke to, as well as on what day, so that they can find out how the problem occurred and have time to fix it, rather than finding out when you arrive.
Stage 4: Enjoy Your Romantic Getaway!
Enjoy your romantic getaway! Let go and utterly relax. Spend quality time together and make memories that you can cherish for years to come! Leave your phone in the safe, and unplug from the stresses of modern everyday life for a little while so that you can connect with each other, not with your social media followers!
