The Perfect Valentine's Day Destinations

Love is in the air with Valentine's Day looming upon us, which means the pressure is mounting up for us to pick that perfect gift, for that special someone. Some of us love to get away for the romantic event of the year and spoil ourselves (and our partners of course!) to a fantastic trip. Just like gifts though, it's important that we pick the right holiday to express our feelings, so here are a selection of the most romantic getaways, each with it's own style.

Of course, this is a good time to think about booking your honeymoon too, so pay attention, we've got the perfect trip for you!

For laid-back lovers...

st lucia

Sometimes all you need is a simple escape away from the usual and into quieter surrounds, with each other to focus on. This is where St. Lucia comes in. Renowned for being the most romantic spot in the Caribbean, the island's slow pace and resplendent natural beauty make it an idyllic location for romance and relaxation.

Turn up the charm on the south of the island, with the iconic Piton Mountains, beautiful botanical gardens and rainforest waterfalls providing the perfect backdrop for special moments and cherished memories. Take a stroll along the golden-sand beaches, or simply enjoy incredible hospitality at one of the island's many fabulous hotels. Regardless of which hotel you pick, you'll find the ocean views, al fresco dining options and expansive spa treatments will help you turn up the romance during your stay.

For wining and dining...

nz wine

For food and wine lovers, the only choice for a break is fabulous New Zealand. With vineyards stretching throughout every region and a taste of the Pacific (and beyond) on offer, your experiences go well beyond taking in the sights and sounds of these picturesque lands. 

Indulge in the finest in fresh seafood, with crayfish, bluff oysters and greenlipped mussels aplenty. Not to mention your choice of award-winning cheeses and, of course, the famous New Zealand lamb - which will change your opinion on every future serving! You can even take cooking classes as a couple to bring you closer together and your cooking skills up to scratch. Wash it all down with the finest of wines from Hawkes Bay, Martinborough and Marlborough and Central Otago, or make it an adventure by driving the Classic Wine Trail

For a city and beach break...

dubrovnik

Take a trip back in time with your partner and take in the delights of Dubrovnik on the most memorable of city breaks. Wander through the streets, inside the medieval walls and amidst the astounding architecture that this city is blessed with. Peaceful and intimate, Croatia's flagship city offers romantic opportunities aplenty.

A chance to explore together, you'll behold some truly breathtaking views throughout your stay here. Few are better than those from the top of Srdj Hill, where you'll get panoramic views of the entire city after a short cable car ride to the top. You can also relish the most spectacular of sunsets from almost anywhere in the city for an image, forever etched in your memory.  After you've seen enough of the city, the appeal of Dubrovnik's beaches should tempt you down to the riviera, where you'll feel the warm, clear sea against your legs on a romantic stroll in the presence of this masterful city's skyline.

For a romantic adventure...

chile walk

Choose Chile for a holiday filled to the brim with activity, exploration and excitement and discover a country with natural beauty in abundance. Thanks to The Andes, you'll find there's an excellent choice of trekking trails here, each offering up superb sights and an opportunity for a romantic walk or hike. On a similar not, Santiago is home to skiing and snowboarding trails, great for a date with a difference.

Not your cup of tea? Fear not, an array of water sports are ready and waiting to get the adrenaline pumping and the hearts pounding (and hopefully fluttering!). Making the most of a number of lakes, rivers and a long stretch of coastline, you'll find plenty of opportunity for adventure with surfing, kayaking, scuba diving and more. Or, for a more chilled out adventure, there are plenty of long, nature walks to be admired.

For a blissful beach break...

fiji

If it's white sand beaches, tropical blue waters and swaying palms that you had in mind, look no further than Fiji for your dream couple's getaway. Decadent and calming, you'll relish the peace and quiet of the Fijian beaches, with lapping waves and a light breeze the only interruptions.

Get the perfect experience with deserted sand atoll picnics and romantic beach diners serving as thoughtful extras, guaranteed to set the mood. Relish more unique experiences and visit a pearl farm, before retreating for a couple's rainforest spa treatment. Sway in the gentle breeze on a traditional hammock or turn up the love and walk hand-in-hand through tide pools. Fiji is where the focus is all on you.

For the wild ones...

sa lodge

Memorable regardless of the occasion, safaris have got a whole lot more luxurious in recent years leaving more room for romance than ever. That's why South Africa could just be the greatest place to whisk your partner away to! The majority of lodges are almost completely immersed with the stunning parks that they are based in, creating the feeling of staying right in the heart of the wilderness - with no walls, no doors and no windows, but all the comfort you could ask for.

Better still, unforgettable game drives are right at your fingertips. Together, you can travel through the plains on the hunt for the legendary Big Five and seek out your favourite animals as a team. That's without mentioning the fun of exploring this exciting natural playground and seeing nature in all its glory. By night, you can lay back and simply gaze at the most vivid, star-studded sky you've ever witnessed. The perfect end, to a perfect day.
