Valentine’s Day is here, which means spending quality time with your loved ones. Teddy bears and chocolates year after year can be mundane, so why not do something different to celebrate your love this year? We’ve compiled a list of the top 5 romantic getaways in the Caribbean and Mexico for you and your partner to relax, reboot, and enjoy each other to the fullest.
Xhale Luxury Villa
The Xhale Luxury Villa in Saint Lucia is the perfect retreat for couples looking to get away from the stresses of everyday life. Situated on half an acre of land, this two floor private villa allows you and your partner to rest and enjoy the natural beauty of the island. Xhale features a 1,400 square foot deck that is ideal for sunrise yoga, cooking on the barbeque grill, or enjoying a cocktail by the cozy fire pit. There are four rooms at the Xhale luxury villa that all feature different décor to suit your personal style. Our favourite is the contemporary room, which comes with robes, a soaking tub, a walk-in shower, an HD smart TV, a king sized bed, and a private balcony overlooking spectacular views.
Jumby Bay Island in Antigua is what vacation dreams are made of. The resort recently made multimillion dollar enhancements to offer guests a new take on private island living. This resort offers complete privacy as only guests of the resort and island residence are permitted on the island. Enjoy the turquoise waters and secluded beaches, or one of the three pools overlooking the sea. Jumby Bay is perfect for couples who want to relax but also experience the island. There’s no shortage of activities at Jumby Bay; with tennis courts and golf courses, watersports and on-land sports, boutique shopping experiences and catamarans for island hopping to Antigua’s neighboring islands, you’ll never be bored. The resort offers a wide variety of lodging with rooms and suites, private villas, and estate homes available to enjoy your vacation to the fullest. We suggest the beachside suite which is the best of both worlds. Experience romance, comfort, and luxury with a soaker tub, private courtyard, and an indoor and outdoor rain shower.
Viceroy Sugar Beach
Viceroy Sugar Beach in Saint Lucia is one of the best luxury hotels for couples looking for an idyllic vacation. Situated near the world famous Pitons, Sugar Beach hotel includes world class dining, personalized butler service, and specialty treatments at the Rainforest spa. We suggest booking the Luxury Cottage which is a completely private and tranquil enclave, with stunning views of the Caribbean Sea. This cozy cottage features a private terrace and plunge pool, a Nespresso coffee maker, and an in-room use of iPad with a docking station.
Viceroy Riviera Maya
We know that Viceroy Hotels are mentioned twice in this post, but we can’t help it that we’re completely in love with their dreamy properties. Viceroy in Riviera Maya is located in Playa Xcalacoco, just outside of Playa del Carmen. This seaside hotel extends deep into the Maya tropical forest, providing you and your partner with the best of both worlds. To top it off, right now Viceroy Riviera Maya is offering a “Fall in Love All Over Again” package which includes overnight accommodations in a private villa, a romantic private plunge pool turndown, a couple’s massage at the spa, a three course dinner at La Marea, and a daily a la carte breakfast. We can’t think of any reason not to re-connect with your loved one at this incredible property.
Petit St. Vincent
Last but not least, if you’re really looking to get away from it all we suggest heading to Petit St. Vincent in the Grenadines. This private island is situated on 115 acres of tropical beauty, with 22 spacious 1 bedroom cottages with views of the Caribbean Sea. You can enjoy yoga on the beach, water and land sports, or the Balinese spa and wellness centre. There are two restaurants on the island with farm to table service and local delicacies served daily. The best part of it all is that there are no telephones in the rooms, no cell phone service, and no WiFi. This secluded vacation will really allow you and your partner to reboot, recharge and relax into complete bliss.
