Is there anything as romantic as sinking your body into a private hot tub with the person you love? Add in a glass of bubbly and a gorgeous view, and you’ve got the makings for a night you’ll remember for the rest of your lives. These hotels and resorts have private hot tubs, plus everything else you need for a special getaway. 

Brasada Ranch, Powell Butte, Oregon 

Brasada Ranch might just be the most romantic place in the Pacific Northwest, with sweeping vistas of the Cascade Mountains and towering bluffs rising from the high desert landscape. Guests can choose between traditional hotel-style rooms or book private cabins with full kitchens, living rooms, and wrap-around decks. The 1 bedroom cabins with hot tubs are ideal for a romantic getaway. The hot tubs are on the deck, the perfect spot to soak in the sunset and watch neon stripes of orange and purple dance across the sky. There’s no light pollution here, just white-hot stars contrasting brightly against the heavens at night. The best part about a stay at Brasada Ranch is that there’s no reason to leave. Couples can enjoy golf, pools, horseback riding, spa days and so much more. There’s also an incredible restaurant on site. It’ll be hard to pull yourself away at the end of your stay. 

Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa, Lake Placid, New York 

There are few places as beautiful as Lake Placid, where the sparkling blue waters of Mirror Lake are nestled in the heart of the ancient Adirondack Mountains. There’s perhaps no better place to breathe in these romantic surroundings than at the gorgeous Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa.  A recipient of the AAA Four Diamond Award for 36 years in a row, the resort manages to feel both luxurious and comfortable at the same time. Located on the shores of Mirror Lake, guests have access to a myriad of activities including spa treatments, skiing, fishing, pools, a private beach, and cooking classes. (This is assuming you can pry yourself away from your room.) The suites feature oversized, jetted hot tubs with more than enough room for two. For an extra indulgent touch, you can even order up a bottle of champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries as you luxuriate in your own private oasis. 

Royal Sonesta, New Orleans, Louisiana 

The Big Easy has a reputation for stunning architecture, luscious food, live music, and a decadent atmosphere. The Royal Sonesta Hotel puts you right in the center of it all.

You’ll find a jazz club, pool bar, oyster bar, and restaurant dedicated to incredible cajun and creole cuisine.

The Jacuzzi suites take luxury to the next level with private hot tubs for a sensual soak at the end of the day. 

Cheeca Lodge and Spa, Islamorada, Florida 

Cheeca Lodge and Spa in the Florida Keys is home to breathtaking views of seemingly infinite turquoise waters. Guests can take an idyllic stroll through 27 acres of tropical gardens, sunbathe at the pools or 1,000 feet of private beach, golf, play tennis, fish on the 525-foot pier, or treat themselves to a sensuous couples massage. Or, you can absorb this magnificent paradise from the privacy of your room. The Lodge King Suites feature huge balconies with spectacular views and open-air spa tubs big enough for two. Thankfully, they’ve included privacy curtains in case things get steamy. 

Espacio The Jewel of Waikiki, Honolulu, Hawaii 

Even the air is romantic in Hawaii, where the scent of the ocean and tropical flowers envelope you like a silken shawl. You’ll want for nothing if you take it all in from the Espacio The Jewell of Waikiki, located directly across from Waikiki Beach. Roundtrip transportation from the airport, a $50 wine credit, in-suite continental breakfast, complimentary admission to local museums, a daily spa credit, and more are included in your stay. Each one of the nine luxurious suites is impeccably decorated and infused with old-world delights like Italian marble and modern touches like smart home technology. Guests can take in sweeping ocean vistas from private hot tubs on their own spectacular balconies at the end of the day. It might not be heaven, but it’s probably as close as you can get here on earth. 

Hilton Los Cabos Beach and Golf Resort, Los Cabos, Mexico 

Hilton Los Cabos Beach and Golf Resort makes its home along one of the only swimmable beaches on the Sea of Cortez.

The resort has everything you need to connect with the person you love including 14 private plunge pool rooms with private plunge pools, showers, and whirlpool tubs facing the Sea of Cortez. In the evening, indulge yourselves with a private mezcal tasting or just stay in, entwined with your partner as golden drops of sun melt like wax across the sky.
