Top 5 Destinations for a Romantic Getaway
#1 One&Only Reethi Rah Resort
From moonlit picnics to private yacht excursions, One&Only Reethi Rah is known for curating experiences that enrich relationships with new vitality around every corner. Whether you’re gazing into your lover’s eyes or the translucent turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean below your floating bungalow, every moment is captivating in the Maldives’ most exclusive all-villa resort.
“We’ve been traveling for a long time, and nothing else compared to this experience. Everything was so beautiful: the white sand, the lush greenery, the neon fish. It almost felt photoshopped! But overall, some of my favorite moments were just being there and enjoying the scenery together. In the back of our floating bungalow, there was a deck that extended over the water with hammock netting. We spent a lot of evenings just laying out there together and taking it all in.”
#2 Sandals Grande St. Lucian Resort
Between private plunge pools, panoramic ocean views, and Sandals’ signature service, it’s no wonder this adults-only paradise topped our clients’ favorite resort list for 2019. Tahitian-style bungalows, beachfront Rondovals, and luxury swim-up suites provide three intimate settings — each with their own alluring amenities — for couples to retreat in at Sandals Grande St. Lucian. Check out our amazing resort review.
#3 Sandals South Coast Resort, Jamaica
Relaxing afternoons spent soaking in Jamaica’s largest zero-entry pool followed by romantic evening bonfires will leave couples glowing inside and out after a visit to Sandals South Coast. Conveniently close to home, the all inclusive resort’s prime location within a 500-acre nature reserve effortlessly whisks couples away to an idyllic escape from the day-to-day.
“We celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary and my wife’s 40th birthday at Sandals South Coast. From our private dinner on the beach, to our butlers constantly surprising us with food and drinks in our room, the location, peacefulness, and service was unbeatable. Enjoying it together with no kids or responsibilities made for such a memorable time!”
#4 Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora
In the heart of French Polynesia, the Four Seasons Bora Bora boasts all of the luxuries that leave couples swooning: private lagoons, sunset dinners on islet shores, overwater bungalows with stunning underwater views, and so much more. Lovebirds looking for an intimate escape are sure to find this magical setting unmatched.
#5 Sandals Royal Barbados Resort
The Barbados’ serene tropical setting meets Sandals’ most engaging activity list yet (complete with bowling alleys and rooftop bars!), fulfilling every couple’s wishlist at the Sandals Royal Barbados. Whether you desire an undisturbed retreat with your lover or a novelty experience for the two of you to share, this all-inclusive, all-suite resort has it all.
“Sandals Royal Barbados was the perfect blend between romantic moments and opportunities for socializing. We had our quiet time when we wanted it — mostly napping in countless comfy places by the pools — and the activities were flexible enough that we could have our own fun with them. The Sky Bar in particular was great for an intimate evening spent dancing under the stars.”
