3 Outrageously Luxurious Valentine’s Destinations

By Courtney Lochner

V-Day is approaching and if you’re looking for something a little better than dinner and a movie then you’re already a step ahead. Why settle for a prix fixe when you can dine under the Indian Ocean, get a spa treatment in a palace in Abu Dhabi or have your own Leonardo da Vinci worthy hand painted suite in the Eternal City? Romantics everywhere are looking for more. Better ways to impress. Better ways to wine and dine. Better memories to create. If you’re one of them then get inspired by these three dreamy Valentine’s Day destinations.

1. Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is spread about two private islands in the Indian Ocean. Here you can dine underwater, take a submarine tour with your date, claim an ocean view all to yourself from your own open air hut complete with hot tub and get spa treatments from heaven in their “over water spa house.” What the hell is that you ask? Let the hotel describe it for you, read it and weep, “Tantalize the senses with this delicious array of treatment rituals to delight the body and seduce the soul. The Over-Water spa is the ultimate escape for couples to experience the most opulent of spa rituals. Each ritual has been designed with pure luxury in mind: precious oils, colors and crystals specific to each ritual create an air of seduction and mystique. Incorporating color therapy, crystal healing and chakra balancing, you will leave the Over-Water spa connected as one.”

2. Emirates Palace can claim the Middle East’s most impressive and comprehensive marina which is no small feat. But marina aside, this palace of a hotel is quite literally oozing with luxury at ever turn. Couples staying in suites can also benefit from couples spa services that include aroma-filled baths and steam rooms. Be sure to choose the Arabian Valentine’s Day promotion which will include a romantic dinner for two in the Sayad Brasserie and a bottle of Laurent Perrier Rosé, breakfast in bed and an automatic upgrade.

3. Westin Excelsior Rome is la dolce vita defined. Opt for the Villa La Cupola Suite and you’ve got 11,700 square feet of pure luxury from hand painted frescoes, Italian marble, a private terrace overlooking the Eternal City, a hot tub and of course, the main 12 meter high cupola dome that hangs the Roman sky above you like you’ve never seen it before. And that square footage didn’t even include the nearly 2,000 additional square feet of terrace space. If you and your partner can tear yourselves away from this heave-on-earth to actually experience Rome outside your doorstep, then consider these lovely locales of where to drink in Rome.
