Sure, roses and chocolates are nice tokens of love to receive on Valentine’s Day, but sometimes you just need a little bit more—like, a private helicopter ride over Rome more. Or Kiki De Montparnasse gold engraved handcuffs more (no judgements here). If you’re looking to make a lasting impression this February 14th, these luxury hotels around the world can help with experiences like a 1920’s swinging soiree for two, an epic ski trip, and a night alone on a private island in the Maldives. Read on for nine incredibly romantic Valentine’s Day packages that will have you falling in love all over again.
New York City Rooftop Luxury
Have you ever wanted to sleep under the stars…in New York City? Now’s your chance. But don’t worry, there’s no need to rough it when you’re in the capable hands of The Peninsula New York. This winter, the hotel has set up two chalet-inspired clear domes on their rooftop and for one night will transform them into a cozy and sumptuous private room for two. The experience begins with private transport to the hotel in the property’s bespoke BMW 7-series, then a rose petal-strewn arrival to the private rooftop chalet, which will be adorned with a one-of-a kind floral creation by McQueens Flowers. A dedicated personal butler will greet the couple with a Champagne toast before they continue to a journey in the Peninsula’s renowned spa. The evening caps off with a private dinner by the hotel’s executive chef, free-flowing rare Champagne, Petrossian caviar, and a specially created dessert paired with bubbles hand-selected by the hotel’s sommelier. After that, you’ll be left alone to sleep under the twinkling stars. Package starts at $48,000.
Private Maldivian Island Getaway
Couples staying at Milaidhoo Island Maldives over Valentine’s Day can opt to spend a night as castaways under the stars on their very own island. In the Sleep Under the Stars Experience, a private sandbank is transformed into a gorgeous, open-air bedroom with a canopied four-poster bed draped in muslin and surrounded by lanterns and candles; a private yacht, anchored nearby, is outfitted with a dressing room and a bathroom stocked with hotel amenities. The experience begins with a romantic Champagne sunset cruise aboard either a luxury yacht or traditional Maldivian sailing boat. After arriving at the secluded sandbank, cocktails are served, followed by a four-course dinner. After dinner, the lovers are left to enjoy drinks by the fire before heading off to sleep. Have no fear: A provided phone offers direct access to a personal butler. As the sun rises, couples can kick-start the day with the Milaidhoo Yogi, who will take them through a sunrise yoga session before the butler arrives to serve a freshly prepared breakfast. We’re pretty sure this what paradise feels like. From $3,000, plus cost of the hotel stay.
At Rome’s recently reimagined Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese, some serious Italian romance awaits. Book the Over-The-Top Valentine’s Day Experience and spend five glorious nights in one of the hotel’s new Venus or Cupid Suites (be sure to look up at the exquisitely painted ceilings), which will be filled with a colorful display by renowned Roman florist Flavia Bruni. Throughout their stay, guests will enjoye multiple activities that are sure to ignite passion—starting with a candle-adorned bath in donkey milk, believed to be an elixir of long life that helps rejuvenate the skin (Cleopatra reportedly bathed in the stuff every day.)
Other experiences will include a jewelry shopping experience with family-owned luxury jeweler Cazzaniga, where the couple will meet privately with Paolo Cazzaniga for a custom design. (If a purchase is made, they will be invited to an evening at Giorgio Cazzaniga’s private residence.) Next up is an exclusive private viewing of Caravaggio’s only ceiling fresco and several Michelangelo sculptures inside the Boncompagni Ludovisi family-owned Villa Aurora. Also included is a helicopter ride to a countryside vineyard, an evening drive through the city, and a Roman Holiday movie tour on a vintage Vespa. Package starts at $22,147.
