Rekindle flames with a dreamy, romantic escape

The world is filled with stunning vacation spots for romantic getaways which come in various forms. Whether you’re in the mood for silky sands and turquoise waters, pampering in deluxe wellness retreats, or culture-rich cities with views around every turn, there is a perfect landing place according to your preferences. Here’s a short list of destinations with the perfect blend of culture and ambiance for your next romantic couples trip. 

1.    Paris, France
The evergreen choice for a romantic vacation outside the country is, of course, Paris. A locale that brims with culture, elegance, and gastronomic prowess, it never fails to set hearts a-flutter. Aside from the famous Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, and Notre-Dame Cathedral, there are other spots worth-visiting with your loved one. Musée de la Vie Romantique is a museum with a secret garden dedicated to the 19th-century romantics in art, music, and literature. Fan of Monet? Musée Marmottan boasts the largest Monet collection in the world. Wander the streets of Paris, especially the district of Latin Quarter teeming with cafés and restaurants or the district of Marais which hosts the elegant square Place des Vosges. 

2.    Santorini, Greece
With postcard-worthy vistas of the ocean, beaches, and traditional Grecian architecture, the volcanic island of Santorini exudes with palpable charm and character. Have front-row seats to otherworldly sunsets at the spacious luxury villas with plunge pools in the coastal town of Oia. Perched high above the island’s caldera in Imerovigli is a year-old wellness retreat Andronis Concept outfitted with impressive amenities like a vineyard and tennis court. Interlock fingers with your loved one as you traverse the serene labyrinthine white-washed streets of Pyrgos. Here, even the most quotidian things can look romantic.

3.    Venice, Italy
Gondolas usually first come to mind when we think about Venice, but there’s so much more about this city than cruising the gorgeous rustic canals in an iconic boat. Leave the famous sights to the crowds and instead spend an intimate idyllic vacation with your significant other at the off-the-beaten-tracks. Renaissance-era palazzos and stylish modern boutiques with quaint views of the city are great nests for starters. Luxury spas with Turkish baths dot the city, but there are secluded ones overlooking the Venice Lagoon. As the sun sets, stroll down at the romantic neighborhood Fondamenta delle Zattere where you can feast on the panoramic views of the Giudecca Canal. Eat and drink like a local at bacaros that serve varied, kaleidoscopically colorful cicchetti and spritz.

4.    Bali, Indonesia
Bali is a great choice for couples who don’t want to cross continents for a vacation. This Indonesian island boasts a slew of luxury resorts where you can reignite embers with your significant other — from beachfront retreats to jungle havens. If you’re looking for the utmost transformative and soothing wellness spas, the zen Ubud District houses secluded romantic hideouts for indulgent yoga retreats with a verdant tropical panorama like the Hanging Gardens. Nusa Dua, on the other hand, is home to five-star resorts with idyllic beachfront suites and topnotch amenities like sprawling golf courses. 

5.    Prague, Czech Republic
Prague is certainly among the most romantic cities in Europe with its stately centuries-old architecture, history-rich museums, and enamoring cobbled streets. Old Town is the city’s tourist heart, which plays host to Baroque and Renaissance buildings, an endless array of boutiques, bars, cafes, and restaurants, and lavish, best-located hotels with an impressive suite of amenities. Amble down with your lover amid the rows of cherry trees at Petrin Hill, Baroque gardens in the Prague Castle complex, and the historic Charles Bridge. After sunset, indulge in champagne and canapés on a private boat for a cruise on the Vltava River, gliding past the enchanting Castle complex.
