Forget expensive bouquets of flowers and whispering sweet nothings into each other’s ears — the most important thing about Valentine’s Day is spending quality time with your significant other. It is one of the most important elements of a happy relationship, anyway.

And what better way to do that, than going on a romantic getaway, where you can fully focus on bonding with your partner? While a staycation might work just as well, there’s that aspect of not being able to properly detach yourself from your work woes — especially when you’re consistently being bombarded with emails flagged as urgent. Going overseas, on the other hand, gives you the excuse of not having a stable wi-fi connection. Which frees up your time for some much-needed recreation and sightseeing with your loved one.

Keeping in mind that Valentine’s Day falls on a weekday, we’ve rounded up 5 regional locales that aren’t too far away from Singapore, so you don’t have to use too many of your precious annual leave days. Save the long-haul trips for longer holidays such as Christmas. Besides, Asia boasts some of the world’s most picturesque beaches, lush mangrove forests and pristine waters — resulting in the perfect setting for a romantic getaway.

Whether you’re looking for quality time together or planning to book a last-minute surprise trip, check out these hotels near Singapore offering Valentine’s Day packages. From room deals to restaurants offering special menus, there is something for every couple.
