While we agree that romance should happen the other 364 days of the year, we love that some of our favorite hotels go all out for this most romantic of holidays. We’ve rounded up the most extravagant ways to show your amor some adoration this February 14.
The Resort at Pedregal, Cabo San Lucas
The Resort at Pedregal is one of Cabo’s standout hotels – all of the rooms feature private plunge pools and it’s accessible only by private tunnel. The resort is already a celebrity favorite due to its high-touch treatment, and now you can add an extra dash of romance to a vacation with the Timeless Romance experience in one of the property’s most indulgent accommodations, the private beachfront casitas.
For four days and three nights, you’ll be wined and dined with perks like a candlelit rooftop dinner with a violinist, fireworks, five dozen roses and nightly turndown amenities like bottles (yes, bottles) of Krug Reims rosé champagne.
There are also gifts that make memories — a couple’s massage at Luna Y Mar spa, a private boat trip and stand-up paddle boarding trip to Lover’s Beach — and mementos that sparkle long after the trip has ended, such as matching Piaget watches and a heart pendant necklace.
You’ll be taken care of from beginning to end with breakfast and dinner daily as well as round-trip airport transfers.
Gstaad Palace, Gstaad, Switzerland
Gstaad Palace feels like a Beauty and the Beast backdrop with its pristine, often snow-covered surroundings and romantic turreted façade.
You’ll feel like the “Belle” of the ball with the Rent-a-Palace Valentine’s Day package, a promotion where you gain exclusive use of the 97-room castle and all five onsite restaurants, including the fondue-focused La Fromagerie. Because really, what trip to the Swiss Alps is complete without a melted cheese feast?
W Los Angeles – West Beverly Hills, Los Angeles
Nothing says “you’re the one” like a permanent mark of your affection. Get “Inked with Love” at W Los Angeles – West Beverly Hills this Valentine’s Day. Should you desire, a professional tattoo artist will come to your hotel room for a private couple’s tattoo session.
The overnight package also includes signature suite accommodations, a relaxing couple’s massage, a Veuve champagne welcome and a post-tattoo dinner at STK.
Montage Kapalua Bay, Maui
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Montage Kapalua Bay has teamed up with famed jeweler Harry Winston for a fairytale proposal that we’re pretty sure will get an unreserved “yes.” Your Love Is in the Air getaway starts with the ring of your choice (the jeweler is happy to custom design something) and then check in for a three-night stay in an ocean-view penthouse suite at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star paradise.
When you’re ready to pop the question, the resort staff will decorate its iconic Cliff House with a carpet of rose petals, cue the musician and have celebratory bubbly at the ready.
After the bended-knee moment, let your love soar with a private helicopter journey to Oahu, an engagement photo shoot and a relaxing package at the hotel spa.
Rosewood Sand Hill, Menlo Park, California
Pop the question in true Silicon Valley style at Rosewood Sand Hill, the Five-Star hotel beloved by the tech elite. The Million I Dos package is (you guessed it) $1 million, but it also wows with some seriously over-the-top amenities, including round-trip private jet transportation, a custom ring from Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry and two nights in the Presidential Villa.
Capture the moment with a proposal photo shoot, and then celebrate à deux with dinner at the hotel restaurant. The next night, celebrity design firm Colin Cowie Celebrations will host an engagement party for you and all of your loved ones.
Casa Velas Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
A proposal might feel like taking the plunge, but you’ll pop this question high in the sky at Casa Velas in Puerto Vallarta. Proposal in the Sky is a variation of the resort’s Dinner in the Sky program, where guests are elevated 150 feet in the air for a three-course feast. But this time, you can rent the sky suite for just the two of you.
Ask her to be your wife amid views of Banderas Bay and the Sierra Madre Mountains below. We’d suggest sunset for the most picturesque option. Drone footage of the big event is available, if you so desire, as are overnight accommodations at Casa Velas or sister property, Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit.
