10 Getaways You Will Both Enjoy
Taking a vacation with your significant other can improve your relationship and help to create and preserve positive memories but planning a trip you will both equally enjoy is not always an easy task. Here are 10 destinations that are likely to be a hit for you and your partner.
1. Fairmont Le Château - Montebello, Quebec
World famous for its breathtaking scenery and climate timely for all four seasons, Fairmont Le Château Montebello, is an elegant log resort that offers seasonal attractions including horseback riding, golfing, outdoor tennis, swimming, cross-country skiing, curling, dogsledding, tubing, and – last but certainly not least – Canada’s only Land Rover Experience Driving School. Unadventurous men and women need not apply.
2. Desert Springs JW Marriott Resort Spa - Palm Springs, California
The JW Marriott Resort is nestled in the majestic Santa Rosa Mountains and comes with a brilliant desert landscape. Despite the impressive and inviting outdoors surrounding the resort, the elegantly appointed guest accommodations combined with luxurious amenities may persuade you to stay put and enjoy the great indoors. Dine at the sushi bar and Lake View restaurant. Outdoors you may want to try your hand out at Golf (something Palm Springs is known for).
3. Disney World - Orlando, Florida
Hold her tight inside the Haunted Mansion or strolling outside the magical castle. Trot the globe together in a matter of minutes; 'It’s A Small World' takes you through each country and their enchanting cultures. After stirring up an appetite try the World Showcase. EPCOT's bevy of countries promises fireworks and a light show. Dance or laugh the night away at Pleasure Island, watch a game at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex or take in Cirque du Soleil at La Nouba. There is a plethora of options right at your fingertips to ensure romantic success.
4. Kanantik Reef Jungle Resort - Belize, the Caribbean
As the biggest barrier reef in the northern hemisphere and the world’s second longest, the Belize coast is a favourite diving spot that extends from one end of the country to the other. Indulge in some sensual discretion at a resort which provides a remote, secluded space (no access to phones or television). At Kanantik Reef and Jungle Resort, the Caribbean and the rain forest intersect in an intimate, private, luxurious beachfront location. With only 25 thatched-roof cabanas situated in lush tropical gardens and fronting a sandy beach, Kanantik provides a truly authentic and relaxing tropical beach and jungle holiday. With some of Belize’s finest scuba diving, wildlife, jungle sights, and activities at your doorstep, you will surely find it to be the Belize of both of your dreams.
5. Wairakei Terraces - Taupo, New Zealand
Built as a tribute to the original Pink and White Terraces (branded as the 8th Wonder of the World) that were buried forever when Mount Tarawera erupted in 1886, the Wairakei Terraces are a manmade creation of cascading silica terraces in blues, pinks and whites, fed by the steaming multi-hued waters of the Alum lakes that, in turn, have been created by a spectacular manmade geyser of superheated waters. At Wairakei you can experience the blue pools, heated ‘Te Kiri o Hinekai’ Stream, Honeymoon Pool (worshipped for its therapeutic and healing powers), red mud pools, a geyser, and a Maori carving house showcasing carvers at work. The Bayview Wairakei Resort is the most expansive international 4-star resort in the central North Island and the Pavilion Restaurant cooks only the best New Zealand meats and seafood. The terraces of Wairakei serve as the perfect outdoor excursion for men and women looking to try something new and different.
6. McGregor Mountain Lodge - Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado
Old upheavals, volcanic eruptions, and glacial scouring sliced and sculpted timeless splendour into this multi-dimensional gem. Rocky Mountain National Park most conveniently resides amidst Roosevelt and Arapaho National Forests, and Colorado State Forest. McGregor Mountain Lodge was built four miles from downtown Estes Park, Colorado and one half mile from the Fall River Entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. Staying at this lodge, you won’t need to go far for hundreds of miles of hiking trails and only a mere five minutes to exhilarating shops, restaurants, and other attractions in Estes Park. No matter what time of year, you can expect nothing less than world class hiking, climbing, snowshoeing, fishing, mountaineering, boating, horseback riding and more. This is the ultimate destination for nature-lovers alike.
7. Bellagio Hotel - Las Vegas, Nevada
For the big spenders, Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas is the place to be. Ogle the Strip fronting this luscious resort where thousands of fountains orchestrate a thirst-quenching aquatic ballet in sync with music and lighting. Several luscious trees wave on the grounds, and the red-tile roofs lining the Mediterranean-blue Lake’s edge resemble those in Tuscany. The inside is just as impressive, from the lobby's ceiling sculpture of hand-blown multicoloured glass to the various guestrooms and suites that display an all-encompassing view of the lake and surrounding mountains. The Bellagio is a ‘pull-out-all-the-stops’ destination where you can dress to impress and sweep her off her feet!
8. Molokai Resort – Molokai, Hawaii
Located on Kamiloloa Beach, the oceanfront Molokai resort is designed like a conventional Polynesian village including Hawaiian cuisine and nightly entertainment, establishing a genuinely Hawaiian island experience. Couples may also enjoy relaxing in the freshwater pool, swinging in a hammock or soaking in the peacefulness of the outdoors in the tropical garden which boasts swaying palm trees and colourful flowers. Hike to remote waterfalls, kayak secluded rocky coastlines, and ride donkeys into the lush valleys, or just laze beachside in order to truly relax with your partner.
9. Hotel Villa Cipriani - Veneto, Italy
If you both share a passion for romance and historical architecture, you won’t have a hard time making yourself home in Venice. Veneto is home to Romeo Juliet; no surprise it’s considered one of the most passionate and magical cities in the world. At Hotel Villa Cipriani, the Villa lies parallel to a meticulous garden, at the heart of which is an ancient well, surrounded by shady pomegranate trees. The garden of the Hotel engages in seasonal metamorphoses and can be viewed from one of 31 rooms separated between the Villa and the 'House in the Garden'. Each room is fully decorated with antiques, exposed beams, bedcovers in pastel shades, fruit and flowers. The Villa has seen the likes of many celebrities and even royalty, but celebrity or not, privacy is always ensured.
10. The Westin Trillium House - Blue Mountain, Ontario
The Westin Trillium House in Blue Mountain renders as a striking mountain resort inserted between the Georgian Bay and the Niagara Escarpment. Only two hours northwest of Toronto, it is located in the new Village at Blue, a pedestrian community of shops, restaurants, and activities just moments away from the province’s most popular skiing and snowboarding. Don’t forget to stop by the Plunge, the year round aquatic center providing indoor and outdoor pools, hot tubs, rope swings, and slides. The mountain resort’s rooms revel in their trademark Heavenly Bed (great for sleeping or, even better, for staying awake with your partner) and the rejuvenating Heavenly Bath which is enjoyable for both men and women.
