7 Romantic Hotel Packages for Valentine’s Day
Here are a few of my favourite romantic hotel packages that don’t skimp on the wow factor!
El Dorado Seaside Palms
Take your love affair on an international escape with El Dorado Seaside Palms. The Riviera Maya resort is located in one of the most beautiful destinations in the world, and it oozes opulence.
This Valentine’s Day, El Dorado is turning up the heat. Couples can experience a romantic dinner in the ocean (the perfect spot for a proposal *hint hint nudge nudge*), a signature beachfront sky massage, and the hotel’s iconic tequila tasting tour.
In between, you can unwind on the powdery white sand, sip on all-inclusive drinks, and disconnect from the rest of the world.
With rates starting at $109 per person per night and $600 in resort credit, breathe in the romance and breathe out all the stress from the real-world.
Declare Your Love From Above
Want a Valentine’s Day celebration that’ll put Kim and Kanye to shame? Book the “Written in Snow” package from Grand Geneva Resort & Spa in Wisconsin.
You and beau will go on a romantic helicopter flip above the hotel, and on the way back, your message is written in snow on the heart-shaped pond.
Use your statement from above to propose, declare your love, or tell your lover you’re expecting!
In addition to your grand romantic gesture, the package also includes:
- A night in the Grand Suite

Self-Love Valentine’s Day Getaway
Feeling blue about flying solo this Valentine’s Day? Spoil YOURSELF.
Moxy Chelsea in New York City is hosting a self-love celebration in collaboration with Kiehl’s. When you book the package, you can expect to find an assortment of gifts in your hotel suite.
Indulge in some of Kiehl’s best-selling products, enjoy a bottle of bubbly on the house, and treat your skin with a complimentary gift certificate to a Virtual Consultation with Kiehl’s Skincare experts.
After all, the best revenge on anyone who has done you wrong is self-love… and clear skin helps too. Plus you can keep this healthy skin going by using some Beverly Hills MD skincare products so your skin can always feel like it is in luxury. There is no perfect time or age for self-love. Small steps might help you feel more confident and good about yourself. For example, wrinkles on your face might make you self-conscious. Here, you may want to check out skincare products (from a company like City Beauty-check out their Facebook page) which tend to be well suited to treating wrinkles, smoothing out skin, and, above all, making you look healthy.
Psst…This is also one of the most affordable Valentine’s specials with rates starting at a low $169 per night.
