Love is in the air this summer as sun-drenched days stretch into balmy, firefly-filled nights. Up the amorous ante with a stay at one of these sensational properties around the globe, which offer up packages with sweet treats and extravagant extras.
Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa
A romantic rendezvous awaits in scenic Scottsdale, Arizona, thanks to this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star resort’s Summer of Love promotion. Bask in a stunning Paradise Valley sunset from the picturesque patio of Elements restaurant before diving into an Asian-inspired, farm-fresh feast for two from celebrity chef Beau MacMillan.
After dinner, have a late-night swim in the adults-only infinity pool or head back to your desert-inspired Mountain Casita to toast your loved one with complimentary champagne and strawberries.
The Townsend Hotel
Leave the stifling city heat behind, without sacrificing that urban vibe, with a weekend getaway to this charmer in Birmingham, Michigan.
Situated just 20 minutes from Detroit, the Four-Star hotel makes your jaunt even more appealing with the Romantic Encounter Package — a special deal that includes bubbly upon arrival and tuxedo chocolate strawberries for a luscious touch.
And with full-breakfast for two available until noon, you won’t have to hurry home any time soon.
Seven Stars Resort & Spa
White sand beaches and turquoise waters at this tropical Four-Star resort will help rekindle the romance. The 30 percent off your stay is just a bonus.
Book your next getaway at this scenic Turks and Caicos treasure before June 30 to enjoy this special rate and use the savings on exciting excursions (a boat ride through a 130,000-year-old cave) and sumptuous spa treatments (a detoxifying seaweed wrap).
Or show your adventurous side by trying your hand at one of the complimentary water sports (sailing, windsurfing, kayaking) at the beach.
Shangri-La Hotel, Paris
Is there a better place to celebrate love than in Paris? With Eiffel Tower views, an opulent ambiance and an extravagant package packed with perks, this Five-Star stay provides an excellent way to stir up summer romance in the City of Light.
Take advantage of this posh property’s Parisian Romance offer to enjoy sumptuous accommodations (decked out with champagne, fresh fruit and a selection of chocolates and flowers upon arrival) and a room service breakfast for two in the morning.
The Heathman Hotel
Give into temptation with this Four-Star Portland, Oregon, property’s Sweet Suite Escape. When you book a stay for two in one of the eco-chic hotel’s contemporary suites, you’ll receive 20 percent off and an extra-indulgent amenity — an in-room, build-your-own sundae bar.
Featuring the city’s favorite Salt & Straw ice cream, this decadent spread includes your choice of two pints — in flavors ranging from sea salt with caramel ribbons to strawberry honey balsamic with black pepper — along with chocolate and caramel syrups, sprinkles and all the fixings for a nostalgic night in.
A 2 p.m. late checkout ensures that you can both sleep off the sugar crash.
The Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara
Set between golden beaches and spectacular mountains, this oceanfront Santa Barbara resort couldn’t be more romantic if it tried. Reserve the property’s Escape to the Ocean offer to take in a scenic sunset with your sweetheart from the balcony of your Mediterranean-inspired suite and enjoy a daily $50 resort credit to use however you choose.
Between succulent steaks with sea views at Angel Oak restaurant, featured wine flights at Foley Tasting Room and chamomile-lavender-infused massages for two at the spa, you’ll find endless ways to unwind with your honey in tow.
The hotel’s Romance Package will not only give you Instagram-worthy views of the harbor, mountains and surrounding cityscape from your airy accommodations, but will gift you with sparkling wine and chocolate-dipped strawberries to help your date night become even more memorable.
After an evening of admiring the city, savor complimentary breakfast for two the next day and a 3 p.m. late checkout so you can gaze at those fantastic vistas a little bit longer.
The American Club
Luxuriate in a cozy summer escape for two at this historic Five-Star Kohler hotel near the scenic Wisconsin shores of Lake Michigan.

But the pampering doesn’t stop there. You and your loved one will also revel in a five-course dinner at Four-Star The Immigrant Restaurant and 20 percent off the top-notch services at the property’s Five-Star Kohler Waters Spa — a must-visit for any couple in need of a little R&R.
