And the best part is there is a retreat here for everybody in every price range. Whether it's for a quick weekend escape or a leisurely vacation, you'll find the perfect getaway right here.
This mining-village-turned-ski-resort is the perfect destination for a couple's retreat. Nestled in the rocky mountains, Telluride is one of Colorado's best kept secrets. When most people think of romantic ski vacations, they think of Aspen, Vail, Stowe, or Lake Tahoe. But Telluride is quaint in its own ways with its streets lined with 19th-century houses. Shops are unique and family-owned. Stay at the Madeline Hotel and Residences for some of the most luxurious accommodations. Spend your days skiing or snowboarding at the Telluride Ski Resort or cozy up in the lounge in front of a roaring fire with a cup of cocoa. Take a romantic gondola ride at dusk with your significant other to watch the valley light up from the soft glow of the streetlights. It looks just like a postcard, and words don't do it justice.
Home to the famous Blue Pool, an oceanside waterfall, Maui is the ultimate couples getaway. Stay at the Montage Kapalua Bay, an upscale boutique hotel with all-suite accommodations. Fill your days paddling in the surf or simply soaking up the sun side by side with the love of your life. Watch the gorgeous sunset over Kapalua Bay as you dine at Cane and Canoe. Enjoy getting pampered together with the Maui Romance Couples package at the Spa Montage. You will enjoy a coconut milk bath in an outdoor tub followed by a sensuous couple's massage in a private outdoor treatment room. A week-long retreat to Maui is just what you and your partner need to rediscover one another and start that fire back up again.
At first glance, Boston may not seem like the ideal romantic retreat for you and your significant other, but hear me out. One of our nation's oldest cities, Boston is packed with history. Additionally, there is a lot of shopping, sightseeing, and amazing restaurants in the city. Better still is that during the winter months, it is considered off-season. That means there are steals to be had for making Boston your destination for your lover's getaway. Groupon is offering deep discounts at some Boston hotels. Stay at the 4.5 star rated Hotel Commonwealth in the city for as low as $149 per night. Visit art galleries on Charles Street then duck into any one of the pubs for a pint. Stroll through Cambridge and admire the grounds of Harvard University while you're there. Go ice skating in the Boston Commons holding hands, then make your way back to your hotel to warm one another up. When it comes to spectacular getaways, alone time in a historic city can be just what the doctor ordered.
Not Woodstock, New York. Woodstock, Vermont. This is another very affordable trip for couples. Stay at the Woodstock Inn and Resort for a genuinely welcoming and cozy experience. Each room offers a maple four-poster bed with red wool throws. Hot cocoa is provided each night to guests at turndown. You can spend the day skiing the Suicide Six where lift tickets start at $44. Enjoy a freshly brewed cup of coffee in the Conservatory to start your day--complimentary to guests of the Woodstock Inn. Stroll through the idyllic town and admire the steepled churches, covered bridges, and white picket fences. Quaint, cozy, and romantic do not do this getaway justice. See for yourself.
Looking for a truly exotic and tropical vacation? Fiji is absolutely right up your alley. You can literally have an entire island to yourself during your getaway. Book your stay at Nukubati Private Island. Only seven couples can be accommodated at once, making your time with your mate extremely secluded and romantic. Fill your days with snorkeling, admiring the Great Sea Reef, or scuba diving. Enjoy champagne at sunset--wherever you are at the resort, the staff will seek you out just before sunset to serve champagne and hors d'oeuvres. You can also enjoy a private dinner on the beach under full view of the stars. Fiji is truly among the best getaways that will bring you and your partner closer together than ever.
The South of France and the French Riviera are known for its glamor and romance. Antibes, located between Nice and Cannes, will not disappoint. Reserve your room at the Le Petit Castel. The small 16-room hotel is both beautiful and cozy, and is within walking distance of the beaches. Visit the Muse´e Picasso located in the Hôtel Salé. Capture the beauty of the French Riviera as you dine at Restaurant L'Arazur indulging in foie gras. Antibes is remarkable in the way it has been preserved since it was built, and it is impossible not to feel the romance in the beauty of this ancient city. As far as couples getaways go, Antibes is both romantic and adventurous.
