Whether you love it or hate it, there is no escaping Valentine’s Day, and if red roses and love hearts are not really your thing, why not use February 14th as an excuse to get away for the weekend, and treat a loved one (and yourself!) to a night or two at a luxury hotel.
There are some fabulous hotel offers on over the Valentine’s period, and while you may have to endure the odd marriage proposal during your stay, it could be just what you need to shake off winter, get over the floods, and get in the mood for some Valentine’s romance!
Whether you decide to stay at home or take a weekend break somewhere warmer, there are endless possibilities for ‘Lurve’ this Valentine’s, here’s a few of my own particular favourites:
A Romantic Valentine’s Affair at The May Fair Hotel, London
If your idea of the perfect Valentine’s Day includes Five Star Luxury in London’s most exclusive corner, then check out the romantic treat on offer at the May Fair Hotel.
Luxury accommodation in a deluxe room or suite, Champagne and Chocolates on arrival, and Champagne breakfast in bed for two can be yours for the princely sum of £475!
Valentine’s Day at Le Bristol, Paris
Over in Paris, the uber luxurious Le Bristol Hotel is offering couples the opportunity to celebrate Valentine’s Day in the most romantic city in the world.
This “exceptional” package includes accommodation for two people, Champagne and Chocolates, a Cocktail for two at Le Bar du Bristol (surely that doesn’t mean one glass and two straws!), two continental breakfasts, and a Tiffany & Co gift. Prices start at €880.00 – Mon Chéri!
Celebrate Love at Grootbos Private Nature Reserve, South Africa
It may involve a long-haul flight, but believe me, the romance package on offer at Grootbos Private Nature Reserve in Gansbaai, South Africa, is worth every single air mile!
For just R4450.00 South African Rand (approximately £250) you and your loved one can enjoy 5-star luxury in a freestanding suite, a gourmet lunch, an afternoon of activities including horse riding on the beach and nature walks, a 7-course Dinner, a romantic turn-down and a bottle of sparkling wine.
Wherever you are this Valentine’s Day, we hope it is a day filled with love and a little bit of luxury!
