We all want to escape from it all sometimes. And there’s no better way to change the scenery than packing a bag and disappearing with your loved one on a romantic break.
When it comes to romantic holidays for couples, I can recommend a range of brilliant destinations. Whether you’re looking for a quiet, relaxing retreat together, or somewhere a little more adventurous, you’re sure to find the perfect location.
Here a six of the most romantic holiday destinations for couples.
1) Naples and Sorrento, Italy
In beautiful southern Italy, you can relax in an amazing romantic location, surrounded by stunning scenery.
With our range of resorts in the Sorrento area, you can enjoy the world class local wines while taking in the spectacular Italian landscape.
The classical city of Naples offers a mix of pastel coloured architecture, ancient churches and beautiful seafronts. And, with sun-drenched beaches, breathtaking sights and delicious food, it’s the perfect destination for enjoying a romantic break.
Sicily and Venice also both offer a beautiful background for an unforgettable romantic getaway.
2) Seville, Spain
Our luxury resorts on the Andalucian coast are the perfect base for a trip up to old Seville, an exciting city filled with fabulous attractions for couples.
There’s so much to explore with its rich cultural heritage of Moorish and Castilian architecture. Take a horse-drawn carriage through the ancient streets, or jump on a ferry and tour the beautiful Guadalquivir River. And you’ve simply got to enjoy the delicious local tapas cuisine.
After your visit to Seville, our resorts across the Costa del Sol will give you all the comfort and relaxation you need for when you return to your hotel after a romantic excursion.
3) Bali, Indonesia
Unique and beautiful, Bali is a fantastic Indonesian island, perfect for a couple’s getaway. An amazingly spiritual location, alive with incredible wildlife, this island gives your romantic adventure a more exotic flavour.
Share a meal at a sunset beach BBQ with delicious Balinese and East Asian food, visit the temples of the sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary, or give your partner a unique gift from the craft markets that sell ornate woodwork, jewellery, incense and textiles.
Our luxury resorts in Bali have some of the most fantastic scenery available. At Nusa Dua, you’ll be surrounded by white sand, lush vegetation and the most amazing hotels in the whole region. For even more pampering, take a trip to Seminyak, an upmarket resort packed with boutiques, bars and 5-star accommodation.
4) New York City, USA
New York City has become the city of romance for the 21st century. While Paris has its beautiful old buildings and monuments, New York City has towering skyscrapers, cold snowy winters, and wide open spaces to create a fantastic romantic break.
The classic romantic scene in NYC is partners ice skating together in winter, either outside the Rockefeller Centre or in Central Park. Once you’re all skated out, you can indulge yourselves by splurging on New York’s legendary shopping districts.
A city break with us means you’ll enjoy a premier New York holiday experience, while we take care of all the organising. This leaves you to focus on the important things like choosing which order you’ll enjoy the musicals, museums, delicious delis and everything else this magical city has to offer.
5) Norwegian Fjords, Norway
Another incredibly romantic destination is western Norway and its beautiful fjords.
The Norwegian fjords are some of the deepest, longest and in parts, narrowest natural waterways in the world, giving spectacular views of incredible landscapes as you travel through them on a deluxe cruise ship.
With cruises lasting from seven to twelve days, and travelling all around the Scandinavian coast, you can take your time to enjoy each other’s company.
What’s more, a well-timed trip between March and October could mean you get to see the Northern Lights. Witnessing the Aurora Borealis while you hold hands with your loved one is a romantic memory that’s sure to last.
6) Greek islands, Greece
The Greek islands hold a romance all of their own, covered in the history of the ancient gods and goddesses that were once worshipped on their shores.
Take your pick of destinations, as many of the islands have a romantic history and are ideal for travelling couples.
There’s Crete, where lovers Ariadne and Theseus battled the Minotaur. Corfu is the island that inspired the romance in Shakespeare’s The Tempest, while Mykonos is regarded as the island of lovers.
All the islands are bathed in sun, sand and beautiful scenery. With brilliant white stone architecture, vibrant colours and amazing views, each has its own personality, giving you a special experience wherever you stay.
