If it has anything, the Parker has sleek, sexy style: expect eclectic and 70s-inspired decor with a modern edge, and an entranceway that belongs on a movie set. Geared towards couples, the hotel features a top-notch spa, two restaurants and a cool bar, indoor and outdoor firepits, glamorous rooms, and four pools. The Parker manages to be dressed-up glamorous and laid-back cool all at the same time -- great for couples looking for a quick getaway.
The upscale, adults-only Two Bunch Resort and Spa is renowned for its natural mineral springs -- such as its relaxing grotto with waterfall. Set on 56 acres of nature, guests come here to relax and take advantage of the amazing spa, hot springs, many hiking trails, lakes, and free yoga classes. Al Capone supposedly came here when he wanted to unwind -- this place is about kicking back. Airy rooms, located either near the spa (the "Grotto rooms) or past the meditation lakes (the "Fountain" rooms), can have romantic details such as tile floors, stained-glass windows, and wood beam ceilings.
Korakia Pensione is a striking hotel. Modeled after a Mediterranean pensione, it looks like something out of Greece or Morocco -- Forbes named it one of the sexiest hotels in America. The two pools and many outdoor spaces, including fire pits, fountains, and stone paths, are all beautiful and unexpected. The rooms are named, not numbered, and each is slightly different, but all have an old-world feel; stone tubs can be found in some rooms and other rooms feature cozy fireplaces. And adding to the romantic vibe, children under 13 are not allowed at the hotel.
