13 couples retreats for unrivalled romance and luxury, to book in time for Valentine’s Day
Whether you’re a hopeless romantic wanting to go all out this Valentine’s Day or you simply want to show the one you love just how much you care, a couples retreat is the perfect gift for the both of you. Sure, there’s nothing wrong with a romantic dinner, a chocolate gift and a bunch of letterbox flowers, but if you prefer a sentimental gift to a material one (no judgement either way) a romantic couples retreat is the perfect way to indulge this February 14th.
Of course, you could avoid celebrating V-Day altogether. But wouldn’t we all secretly love a romantic night in one of the most romantic hotels in the country? Rose petals on the bed and all? Exactly. With so many great Valentine’s hotel deals floating about the place, why not take advantage?
With many hotels and spas extending their Valentine’s offerings to the weekend before the special day (which this year falls on a Monday), you can call it a weekend away with no mention of Cupid. And for those who do want the full loved up package, there are plenty of rose petals, intimate dinners, and glasses of Champagne in store.
You and your partner have most likely spent a lot of time at home together over the past couple of years, so a night or two away is most definitely *needed* at this point. And if you’re in a long distance relationship, Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to plan a getaway and have a change of scenery for you both.
While international travel is certainly easier than it was this time last year, you don’t have to travel to Paris, Barcelona, the South of France, or New York. Staycations are definitely still in, and we’ve rounded up some of the most romantic hotels across the UK for a guaranteed dreamy stay. Whether your ideal destination is a spa break in the countryside or enjoying the hustle and bustle of London, there’s something for everyone.
Head to Brighton and wake up to sea views or travel to the historic city of York and enjoy a gin cocktail and cooking lesson as part of The Grand’s ‘Let The Romance Be-Gin’ Valentine’s Day celebrations. And for those wanting a fairy tale getaway, you can feel like a princess when you stay the night at Thornbury Castle.
Elsewhere, there are some amazing Valentine’s Day packages on offer at The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa – a hotel which offers 45 individually designed suites and bedrooms from the heart of the 250-year-old Grade I Listed Royal Crescent in the historic city of Bath. Between Friday 11th to Monday 14th of February 2022, you can book their ‘Totally Indulgent Valentine’s Weekend’ package (from £1,050 for two people), which comprises a two-night stay, a romantic Valentine’s dinner, a bottle of Taittinger Champagne, chocolates, access to the Spa & Bath House and a delicious breakfast on each morning.
Or how about the ‘One Enchanted Evening’ package which can be booked between Sunday 13th and Monday 14th February (from £560 for two people), comprising of a one night stay including a romantic Valentine’s dinner with a glass of Taittinger Champagne, Tea, Coffee and Petit Fours, followed by a leisurely breakfast the next day. So. Good.
