This year, Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday and it’s the perfect excuse for a decadent weekend filled with breakfast in bed mornings and luxuriant strolls on the sand. Whether you’ve already found your perfect Valentine or prefer to celebrate with your favourite friends, grab someone you love and get ready to jet off into the sunset. The hotel experts at Mr & Mrs Smith have put together a hotlist of five boutique boudoirs that are still available on Valentine’s Day – whether you’re seduced by rugged mountaintop treasures, vibrant city slickers, or whisper-quiet spas, your weekend itinerary reads: Bliss!
Take a Bite
If your sweetie pie is a gourmand, check-in to The Opposite House in Beijing where you can dine at Jing Yaa Tang, superstar-chef Alan Yau’s first outpost in mainland China. Whet your appetite for amour with refined renditions of mouth-watering classics such as koushuiji (chicken in chilli sauce), chuanar (lamb skewers) and noodles with zhajiang (soybean paste), not to mention delicious duck, roasted to crispy-skinned perfection.
Take your beach babe to Thailand for some ultra luxe R & R. Trisara’s understated glamour and tranquil setting keep it at the top of its game. Trisara means ‘Third Garden in Heaven’ in Sanskrit, and with incredible, infinity pool flanked villas, year-round sunsets and enchanting dining experiences, your little piece of heaven awaits.
Rise to the Occasion
If you’re after a slower paced affair, head for the hills to Kayumanis Ubud. At this handsome hottie located high in the mountains near Bali’s culture-filled Ubud, you can cycle through serene rice paddies, sample local cuisine and enjoy guided walks through ancient temples.
Spa aficionados hold onto your towels – a weekend of uninterrupted relaxation awaits at Fusion Maia in Hoi An, Asia’s very first all-inclusive spa resort. Lovers or friends can enjoy a myriad of treatments from the extensive spa menu: think yogurt-splashed body cleanses, fresh flower exfoliation and deep-tissue Thai massages. Once the therapists are finished with you, you’ll be scrubbed, kneaded and sparkling from head to toe.
The white sands, crystal blue waters and captivating sunsets of the Maldives are the ultimate recipe for romance. Head to private-island Constance Halaveli and skip down the jetties to your va-va-voom villa with its own private pool and enjoy the kaleidoscopic coral, three restaurants and a bar that offers a choice of 11 G&Ts (all of which feature the hotel’s own infused gin). Cheers to an incredible Valentine’s Day weekend!
