Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a spa weekend, a champagne brunch in bed, and a private pool beach villa. Pralines come close and bouquets are cute, but is there honestly anything sweeter than a romantic resort getaway for Valentine’s Day?

The day of big love falls on a Thursday this year, meaning that it gives us ample opportunity to rock the socks off bae and whisk him or her away for a quick weekend escape. Many hotels are offering exclusive packages for the big day and beyond, and between couples’ massages and candlelit dinners, there is plenty to swoon for.

Whether you like to party and prosecco or prefer pyjamas and pastries, there’s something here for every taste and traveler. After all, not everyone finds romance on a sun bed or with the sand between their toes, which is why we’ve put together a combination of not only island escapes, but also spa and nature retreats too, as well as a banging Bangkok staycation. Are you ready to fall head over heels (into a hotel bed)? Read on and prepare for that sweet baecation next week.
