Romantic Escapes

posted February 29, 2016


From waking up to watch the sun rise as you stroll down the beach with your loved one, to enjoying a candle lit dinner for two under the clear starry sky, our amazing locations spread across the country will meet all your lover’s desires.


Flanked by the almighty Big Island and stunning Molokai, Maui is a sight to behold. Located in the Hawaiian Islands, Maui has a wealth of intriguing history, romantic culture and impressive wildlife. It’s the irresistible tropical paradise for travellers in love! Find yourself grooving to the beat as you hula dance with the locals, or explore Maui’s diverse geography by participating in outdoor activities together, from hiking and biking to windsurfing. One activity that is a must is snorkelling – five different species of sea turtles can be found around the island and you might just catch an underwater glimpse of them. Maui is known for its beach resorts, but if you are looking for the perfect excuse to pull you away from your sun lounger then travel along the winding ‘Road to Hana’ to explore Haleakala, the world’s largest dormant volcano. For the perfect end to a magical day, pop open a bottle of bubbly and watch the sunset as you enjoy a private dinner on the beach.


If you dream of cuddling up under a large fur rug, in front of a blazing fire while the snow falls outside, then look no further than Aspen for your very own ‘Winter Wonderland’.  Aspen boasts picturesque mountain chalets that are hugged by the soaring Colorado Rockies, glistening as the sun shines upon the snow. Catering to all levels of ability, Aspen’s widely renowned ski resort is equipped with four premier ski areas nearby. If your competitive nature gets you racing downhill at full speed then you will love what the mountain range of Aspen has to offer in terms of winter sports. However, if you would rather keep the rivalry to a minimum, there are plenty of other things you can do with your other half. Whether it is high-end shopping and treating your special someone to a special something, or exploring funky galleries and fun festivals.

Napa Valley

With cosy wine caverns, luxurious hotels and rolling vineyards as far as the eye can see, this wine lover’s paradise is the ultimate romantic getaway. Situated north of San Francisco and kissed by the Californian sun, Napa Valley is the perfect destination for couples who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Home to more than 400 world class wineries, you can get lost exploring the vineyards together on a private tour with an expert. Alternatively, appreciate them from the heights of a stunning hot air balloon ride, giving you the perfect bird’s eye view. If wine isn’t your calling then grab a bike and speed along a well-worn mountain trail, finding perfectly smoked charcuterie or delicious wedges of handcrafted cheese in the many home grown and inviting restaurants along the way.


Savannah’s Southern charm and unwavering hospitality prove a welcoming invite to lovers looking for a romantic getaway. Uncover the hidden hotspots throughout this beautiful city in Georgia by wandering the wide cobblestone streets, under the cool canopy of Savannah’s famous Spanish moss.  Stop to whet your appetite on traditional home cooked Southern food such as tender crab stews, BBQ brisket and seared scallops, all cooked to perfection. If you wake up early enough, you can grab your clubs and play a round of golf on one of the many courses that scatter the countryside, before relaxing on the beach and refreshing yourself in the cool sea. You’ll soon find that by thriving on traditional excellence and upholding its amazing heritage, Savannah holds onto a slower pace of life than the big metropolises. This creates the perfect atmosphere for a quality, stress-free time together. It’s hard to resist sitting back and letting the Southern way of life sweep over you.
