Hotels Welcome Couples with Valentine’s Day Specials

Romance is in the air: Roses and Champagne toasts await couples checking into hotels for Valentine’s Day. Here are some of the special ways hotels have created for you to treat that special someone.

If cost isn’t an issue and you’re looking for an over-the-top way to make an impression, check out the “Sea the Love” Valentine’s Package at the Ocean House, Watch Hill, Rhode Island (it’s available at a mere $153,600). It includes accommodations in the Tower suite, use of a Mercedes-Benz EQS 450 electronic vehicle, and all sorts of other amenities such as a couple’s massage and pedicures, dinner for two, a set of two monogrammed Matouk Linens pillowcases — and private helicopter transportation for two to Ocean House from New York or Boston Metro, Connecticut, or Rhode Island. If you’re making a booking after Valentine’s Day, check Expedia for a better rate.

If that’s not fancy enough, jet to the Maldives. Velaa Private Island has dreamt up a $200,000 experience that includes all of the property’s amenities and activities, plus a stay in the top pool residence villa which is surrounded by water and only accessible by boat (and which the the team will have completely covered in candles and rose petals), along with champagne bubble baths and a personal fireworks display to be set off whenever you please.

Kehoe House, Savannah, GeorgiaThe Kehoe House in Savannah, Georgia, specializes in romance — it’s even an all-adult hostelry. Available year ’round (not just for Valentine’s Day), there’s the Ultimate Romance Package. It includes premium Champagne and two keepsake Kehoe House Champagne flutes, a dozen roses, two Kehoe House robes, romantic turndown service, and a box of fine chocolates by Savannah’s own Oglethorpe Chocolates.

With the signature True Chicago Romance Package, lovers can forgo the fancy dinner reservations and celebrate the holiday IN at the Michigan Avenue hotel. The True Chicago Experience Package encourages guests to explore the Windy City in a unique way, whether with a significant other or best friend. Maybe you’re celebrating the end of a relationship? The hotel’s corner wine bar, ENO Wine Room, also allows guests to kiss goodbye to an old flame with its Shred Your Ex offering available February 14. For a non-Valentine stay, check Priceline for rates.

DELMAR West Hartford, ConnecticutDELAMAR West Hartford, Connecticut, is celebrating love all through February. The package includes a bottle of Champagne on ice, chocolate truffles, a discounted spa treatment, and a 1 p.m. late departure. For non-package stays, check for deals and better rates.

This Valentine’s Day and throughout the month of February, get to the heart of romance with a stay at the Alfond Inn, Winter Park, Florida. The hotel’s Romance in the Park experience begins with checking into a Classic Room, where a chilled bottle of Champagne awaits. There’s a specialty cake to mark the occasion as well.

Sheen Falls, IrelandFebruary is the month of love at Sheen Falls Lodge, a Relais & Chateaux hotel in Kenmare, County Kerry, Ireland. “Fall in Love” stay starts with chocolates and champagne upon arrival and continues through dinner in The Falls restaurant. Once again, for non package rates, check for a better price.

And, for something totally different, what about booking a yacht cruise onboard Kontiki Expedition to the coast of Ecuador this February? You and your loved one will discover the delights of artisanal chocolate making, paired with New World wines; personalized onboard service with gastronomic meals; the wonders of flora and fauna including Ecuador’s famed blue-footed boobies; secluded beaches, and rainforest hikes. Kontiki Expeditions is the first water-based member of Small Luxury Hotels.

St. Regis Bora Bora, MarriottSpeaking of tropical getaways, consider the St. Regis Bora Bora and its Black Pearl Romance Getaway. Couples will spend five nights in a classic overwater villa, partake in a Champagne dinner by candlelight on the resort’s private island one evening and a signature canoe breakfast one morning. Oh — and a private helicopter ride over Bora Bora’s famous heart-shaped Tupai Island (complete with bubbly on board) and the 24-carat gold al fresco couples massage, performed with gold-flake infused coconut oil. If you can’t make it to French Polynesia next month, book a stay later in the year and check for competitive rates.
