We’ve perused our most romantic hotels to find come-hither amenities that could have even total strangers getting hot and heavy in no time. Grab your spouse, significant other, or the eye candy that lives next door and check in to one of these sexy spots.
The Ventana Inn & Spa is all about creating a zen, holistic retreat with such offerings as yoga classes, discovery walks, afternoon wine and cheese, Japanese baths, and two pools. Forgot to pack your bathing suit? No problem! One of the pools is clothing-optional (read: everyone's in their birthday suit), so it's easy to dive in and feel sexy.
Gah, we're blushing just writing this. But the luxurious Bryant Park Hotel, which overlooks the beautiful Midtown park, has a sex toy menu in every room for your own pleasure (pun intended, natch). There are options for couples and singles, so even if you're flying solo, you can still get your kicks. And it looks like some guests certainly have. The hotel once tweeted "One of our guests last night purchased $1,975 from our pleasure chest sex toy menu-WOW."
Built in 2005, the St. Regis offers the best in luxury: 24-hour butler service, the critically-acclaimed Ame restaurant, the Remede spa, and romantic rooms with great beds and bathrooms. The best part about the bathrooms, though, is that you can pay (a pretty penny, at that) to have a bath drawn for you. You can't go wrong with the "Krug Champagne and Chocolat Extravagance" or "Rose Petal Romance" tubs for the sexiest experiences.
With one of the sexiest spas in the states, the Terranea Resort is a popular romantic getaway. The spa encompasses a whopping 50,000 square feet and has 25 treatment rooms (themed after each of the Earth's elements), as well as its own pool with ocean views and outdoor hot tubs. Before taking a dip, enjoy a relaxing couples massage in your own private cabana -- clothing also optional here, of course.
The Drake Hotel's small rooms have their own hip style with funky decor (highlighted by pops of color and cool photographs), modern touches like flat-screen TVs and iPod docks, and mood-inducing pleasure menus featuring "packs" with suggestive (and enticing) descriptions such as " some cheeky fun to get your night started" and "this one is for the thrill seekers." For the latter, we say enter at your own risk.
The magical grottos give this 21-acre resort a special mystique; crystal-clear water is surrounded by dark and looming stalactites and stalagmites, and echoes of gently lapping water bounce from rock to rock before falling flat. It may be a bit spooky -- but it's certainly sexy -- and guests are free to take a dip, or they can opt (and by opt, we mean splurge) for a subterranean couples massage.
