Whether it’s a honeymoon, proposal, Valentine’s getaway, or just a surprise trip for two, romantic getaways have a magical way of strengthening any relationship. For many of us, however, we think of romantic getaways as just a quick weekend excursion to somewhere nearby…but perhaps it’s time to start planning a little more creatively?
To inspire your next romantic break, we’ve compiled a list of some of our all-time favorite northern hemisphere destinations for a romantic getaway.
Hévíz - Hungary
Bonvital Hotel Hévíz
Located a short walk from the thermal lake, the Binvital hotel is the perfect place for couples to fall further in love! The hotel caters purely to adults, meaning that there will be fewer distractions while you enjoy complimentary spa treatments, amazing cuisine in the hotel’s restaurant, or just relax on your room’s private balcony.
Tulum - Mexico
A seaside destination with an ancient history, Tulum is renowned for its sugar-colored beaches, azure waters, and many romantic spots to explore with your loved one. From tequila tastings and the vibrant nightlife scene to authentic cooking classes and eclectic dining experiences, the food scene has a global appeal for its take on Mexican cuisine.
Kore Tulum Resort and Spa
Focused on adults only, the Kore Tulum is a resort for couples who want a more personalized experience, with all the luxuries. The spectacular beachfront location offers you the chance to relax on the sand, or if the pool is more your style, you can sit back and enjoy the peace with a cocktail in hand. Fine dining and amazing spa treatments give couples the chance to immerse themselves in the romance that is Tulum!
St Barts - Caribbean
St Barthelemy, also known as St Barts, is a small and peaceful island in the Caribbean attracting travelers with its pristine beaches and slightly more upmarket approach to tourism. Being more exclusive than some of the other islands nearby, St Barts is the perfect destination for romantic getaways for couples who are wanting to enjoy each other’s company with a little more privacy.
Rated as one of the top hotels on the island, Le Barthelemy is the perfect escape for a couple looking to relax, get pampered, and enjoy some time together. Whether you want to spend time on the beach or relax at the pool with a cocktail, with a few spa treatments in between tanning sessions, then this is the place to be for a romantic getaway in St Barts!
Brigus & Cupids; Newfoundland - Canada
The oldest town in Canada, Cupids was established in 1610 but abandoned around 1700. Today, however, the area is known for the romantic scenery which it provides. Brigus, just 50 miles from Cupids, is another charming village that we recommend exploring with your loved one and spending a night at one of the many renowned boutique-style hotels and B&B’s.
Located on the waterfront, the Brittoner is a tranquil B&B that offers a range of services. With a number of attractions and top restaurants within walking distance, this is a perfect B&B to enjoy a romantic getaway with your loved one.
Havana - Cuba
The beating heart of Cuba, Havana is a melting pot of cultures from all over the world. While the country has seen many ups and downs, it has not changed the beauty and romance that made so many fall in love with the country and the city itself. From classic cars to theatres, beaches and stunning mountains, Havana has a never-ending list of possibilities and options!
La Reserva Vedado
Once a colonial mansion, the La Reserva Vedado has been transformed into a beautiful hotel, with spectacular gardens, an in-house art gallery and is centrally located in the heart of El Vedado.
