A romantic date is a requirement on Valentine's Day if you're in a relationship, but if you really want to impress your significant other, a lovely weekend getaway is just the ticket. And with February 14th falling on the Friday of President's Day weekend this year, its the perfect time to escape with your honey. So if you need a little inspiration for where to go and stay, check out the five most romantic hotel rooms we've ever seen. These will be sure to fire up some love (and lust!) for the holiday!
Located in the gated Cap Cana community, the Eden Roc is one of the newest, most luxurious properties in the Dominican Republic. With just 34 standalone suites and villas, it exudes a sexy, secluded vibe, and couples will find plenty of romantic touches in the Junior Suites, each complete with their own pool. They also feature spacious bathrooms with walk-in closets and private patios where couples can receive spa treatments.
Party-loving couples will feel right at home in Hotel ZaZa, an ultra-hip hangout that is a cool alternative to the sometimes stuffy hotels of Uptown Dallas. The hotel’s restaurant and bar, located poolside, are home to lively scenes, and the Rock Star Magnificent Suite is just the spot for a rocker couple this Valentine’s Day. It features ornate decor — heavy on animal print and retro black-and-white photos — an electric guitar, two bathrooms with soaking tubs, and a large outdoor terrace.
Mukul is more than just a luxury resort; it is one of the most exclusive hideaways not only in Nicaragua, but Central America. The name, Mukul, is Mayan for “secret,” and guests are assured of a high level of privacy: The resort, part of a sprawling, 1670-acre beach community, has only 37 luxurious Bohios and Villas, and the grounds are not open to the public. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the Bohio Suites make them feel completely at one with the lush natural surroundings, and sliding doors lead out to private plunge pools and patios with daybeds. The bathrooms are also massive and feature double-headed showers.
Stepping into The Greenwich Hotel, guests forget the hustle and bustle of the city streets; reminiscent of an Italian villa, the hotel features a tranquil lobby, a beautiful underground pool and spa, and one of New York City’s top Italian restaurants. Corner Suites are perfectly cozy for holing up this holiday; each feature a fireplace, hand-picked, artisanal furniture and decor, and an expansive marble bathroom.
Located right on the banks of the Napa River, the Milliken Creek Inn is one of the swankier hotel options in Napa, and is a great pick for couples looking for romance. All 12 rooms are supreme, from the four-poster canopy beds, to the working fireplaces, to the stunning views; Luxury Rooms also feature sexy standalone bathtubs in the open bedrooms. Every evening couples return to lit tea candles and soft music in their rooms, and can opt to have free breakfast served every morning in bed, on their patio, or anywhere on the grounds.
