1. Seychelles, Africa: Island Getaways
An island getaway is a very romantic spot for a couple to go for the perfect holiday retreat. North Island is a private resort that has 11 thatched villas on its three kilometre long island. Or, you can choose one of the 17 teak villas on the nearby Fregate Island that have a pool, dining pavilion and even your very own butler. And there is also the choice of one of the 22 cottages of nearby Denis Island where nature loving couples can enjoy swimming with turtles, manta rays, and tropical fish.
2. Spa Holiday at Jumby Bay in Antigua
Another great getaway is Jumby Bay in the Caribbean. There are 28 suites, along with two restaurants to eat at and best of all a luxurious spa called the Rosewood Spa. The spa offers five different treatment rooms with private terraces.
3. Paris is for Lovers
Ah the city of love, what could be more romantic for a couple’s holiday? Come to Paris together, savor the city’s romantic vibe and see the iconic sites like the Eiffel Tower. Or, perhaps you would rather just gaze into each other’s eyes while seated at an outdoor café sipping wine.
4. Countryside Canals, England
Have a romantic weekend for two by hiring a canal boat in England for a special getaway. You and your significant other can enjoy the tranquil countryside, view nature and cuddle together as you paddle along the Thames.
5. Honolulu, Hawaii for Two
Another great place for a couple’s holiday is Honolulu, Hawaii. There, you two can stroll on the beach, snorkel together, swim or rent an outrigger canoe for a romantic ride. Or, just lounge on the beach together and recreate that famous scene in the movies where the lovers lay in the surf.
6. Bali, Indonesia
Bali is a popular destination for couples to go on holiday. It offers secluded beaches, beautiful blue water, friendly people, and lots to do together. You can visit the Besakih Temple, go to Lake Batur, see the active volcano Mount Batur or sample some of the local cuisine.
7. Tuscany, Italy
Tuscany, Italy is another classic couples holiday destination. This stunning region of Italy is home to the famous cities of Lucca, Pisa, Florence, and Siena. If the city scene isn’t your style, head into the countryside, walk or take a bike ride and soak up the culture, landscape and food of Tuscany.
8. Nightlife in Vegas, Baby
Couples may also enjoy a spirited USA holiday in Las Vegas, aka Sin City. Stroll the lively Las Vegas strip with its glitzy hotels and shows, feast at one of the famous buffets, or take your chances on the casino floor and gamble the night away before retreating to your hotel.
9. Acapulco, Mexico
Acapulco, Mexico is yet another deliciously romantic holiday for couples. It offers nightclubs, gourmet restaurants, beaches, water sports, and much much more.
10. Niagara Falls, New York
In Niagara Falls, New York, many honeymooners have gazed into the powerful falls as they held hands and gloried at its cascading water. There is much else to do there too with plenty of museums, restaurants, shopping and parks with hiking or fishing and camping venues.
