Taking a vacation with your significant other is all about letting go, relaxing, and indulging in some much-needed romantic time. While the sound of the waves at a beachy destination or twinkling lights in a new city certainly set the mood, some hotels are going above and beyond to ignite a serious spark. Whether it’s intimate in-room perks or specially prepared passionate meals, these nine properties got creative with their offerings by providing these sexy amenities.

Book one of the seven terrace suites that feature private outdoor showers and you can bathe al fresco while taking in the
stunning city sights. This rare urban experience is even more
voyeuristically enticing as you can hear the bustling of people below. (Don’t worry, they can’t see you — but they can if you opt for The Standard High Line instead. You know, if you’re into that.)

5. Kraken's Lair Suite at Hotel Pelirocco; Brighton, England

The sole purpose of
this hotel is to live like a rock star, so there’s bound to be a few wild
amenities. While it has both burlesque and sci-fi themed rooms, the most scandalous room here is the Kraken’s Lair Suite. The sexy suite has a mirror above the bed, a
stripper pole, a red chandelier, and risqué mermaid photos. There’s also the
lingerie-themed Ophelia
Fancy Room

6. The Love Room at the Library Hotel, New York City

Live out that sexy librarian fantasy by
booking one of the naughty-themed rooms at NYC’s Library Hotel. The Erotic Literature Room is
decorated with racy photos and comes complete with an in-room Kama Sutra guide. The Love Room has
similar offerings with books like Ovid’s The
Art of Love
 and Dr. Ruth Westheimer’s The Art of Arousal. You also get a king-sized bed
to test all your newly learned knowledge.

7. Aphrodisiac Picnic-in-Bed at Hotel Tugu, Bali

is one of the most romantic destinations in the world, but Hotel Tugu really ups
the ante with its Aphrodisiac Picnic-in-Bed offering. The property’s
drool-worthy description of the experience is so good, it’s best to let them
explain. “In your 18th-century antique bed, solo on a private beach,
illuminated by oil lanterns and a red dusky Canggu sky, you will be tucked in
for a private gourmet picnic under the moonlight,” reads the site. “Culminating
with two blindfolds to accompany your to-die-for desserts.”

8. Champagne Tower Cleopatra at Cove Haven, Poconos

Keep it classic when it comes
to a romantic evening and perhaps even a little cheesy. There’s nothing quite
like taking a bath in a 7-foot champagne glass Whirlpool bath-for-two and a celestial ceiling overhead. If that’s not enough, make use of the massage table with
heat lamp before cozying up in your round king-sized bed.

9. Erotic Room at Hotel Zaza Dallas

You’ll step back in time for little free love action in this
themed suite. The 650sqft room is outfitted with a shag carpet and love beads
as well as fur, velvet, and silk making for a tactile night of fun. Britney
Spears was even rumored to have stayed in the sexy suite. But, if you want to
get even naughtier, the hotel’s Houston location supposedly has unlisted suite
with a jail theme. You’ll have to request the Hard Times suite to see if the
myth is true.
