Need New Ideas For Planning a Romantic Retreat with a Difference?

Posted in: , , ,

By Ivy Delfin

We all have a different idea of what constitutes a romantic getaway. For some of us, a big bustling city like New York, provides an exciting backdrop to our romantic encounters. For others, the serenity and peace of a remote hut in the mountains is the perfect turn-on. Whatever it is that you and your partner desire, you can be certain of one thing, there’s a tourism experience out there that’s tailored just for you. You just have to find it. Here are some enchanting getaways from around the world to get you inspired for your next romantic trip.

Hotel Kakslauttanen & Igloo Village - Finland
Secluded in Finland’s Lapland wilderness are 20 domed igloos constructed from thermal glass. Lie in your underground room and you can gaze up at the northern lights as they dance across the sky. In the winter months, the hotel builds real igloos from snow, which you can snuggle up in, inside your fluffy down sleeping bags.

GoldenEye Retreat - Jamaica
This cliff-top retreat, located in Oracabessa Bay on the north coast of Jamaica, was once owned by James Bond creator Ian Fleming. Couples can book Fleming’s original 3 bedroom villa where he wrote many of the early Bond novels. Even if your partner doesn’t have the slightest interest in the world’s most famous spy, the island is still a remarkably beautiful place to relax and explore.

Balinese Spa Retreat – Victoria, Australia
2.88 million tourists visited Bali in 2012, with the largest group of these being couples from Australia. For Victorian’s who are short on time, or want to book a last minute weekend getaway, there’s a Balinese resort in your own backyard. Enjoy luxury spa packages, massage therapy and fine dining without having to get on a plane.

Glen Oaks – Big Sur, California
If towering forests are your thing, Big Sur’s Glen Oaks provides the perfect setting with natural wood cottages situated between a pristine beach, trickling river and redwood trees. Couples can take long strolls along the beach, feeling the soft sand between their toes. Believe it or not, the sand is purple!

Shangri-La Hotel – Paris, France
Officially the world capital of romance, Paris is no. 1 on more girls lists of dream destinations than any other. The Shangri-La Hotel has a stunning view across Paris with the Eiffel tower right in-front of you. This luxury palace was built in 1896 and was once home to the grand-nephew of the French emperor, Napoleon Boneparte.

Tswalu – Northern Cape Province, South Africa
Situated on South Africa’s Kalahari Plains, Twalu offers spacious, thatched-roof legae’s for you and your mate to retire to after a day spotting cheetahs and black rhinos. Red fiery sunsets and warm nights will reignite the passion in any relationship.

Cas’almare – Favignana, Italy
This intimate hotel has just five guest rooms, a breakfast room and central living area, which are adorned with chic European furnishings. Explore the rugged terrain of Sicily’s Favignana Island or take to the turquoise blue waters of the Mediterranean on one of the hotel’s boats.
