For all the singles out there, let’s redefine the meaning of Valentine’s Day this 2013. No more staying at home to reminisce about the heartbreaker or feeling dejected over the late entrance of your future lover, this is the time to embrace freedom while you can. Here is a list of the top five Valentine’s Day getaways for your fabulous escapade, selected by The Luxe Nomad.
1. The Lebua, Bangkok, Thailand
If you find this seemingly familiar, that’s because you’ve probably seen this on “The Hangover II”. Key scenes from The Hangover II movie were filmed exclusively at this chic al fresco Sirocco restaurant, situated atop one of Bangkok's most luxurious hotel -- The Lebua. A highlight for this opulent hotel would be its "Hangover Suite" -- a three-bedroom suite that sleeps up to six guests, has a fully-stocked mini-bar and most importantly, ample space to host a party or gathering. If you’re planning a getaway with your girlfriends, this might just be the perfect place to have some bonding time over a glass of Hangovertini cocktail.

In addition, to ensure that their guests experience a full body detox, the resort only serves vegan food.
