Boy, it's COLD here in New York! With Valentine's Day just around the corner, our minds are wandering to some of the coziest, quietest corners of the world, and our friends in the travel biz are not about to let us down. Here, some amazing deals to some of the most luxurious, romantic spots out there!
Get All-Inclusive in Antigua!
Elite Islands Resorts, Antigua
Relax on a perfect white-sand beach at one of the Elite Islands family of resorts in Antigua and you won't have to touch your wallet the entire stay! Food, booze, and watersports are included in one price. Now that's romantic! Rooms at the affordable Verandah hotel are going fast for Valentine's Day, but the $199 price tag is good through December if you book by February 28!
Yes, You CAN Afford the Bahamas!
You can have a Caribbean island experience without even taking an international flight! North Bimini is just three hours from Miami on a "SuperFast" boat, and was one of Ernest Hemingway's favorite getaways with his wife Pauline. Find the island's Love Tree-legend says it brings good luck to those who kiss beneath it. Bimini Big Game Club's rooms start at $185 per night-the resort is popular for beach weddings right on the sea.
Snuggle by the Sea!
Sea Crest Beach Hotel, Falmouth, Massachusetts
If you think Cape Cod is just for summer, well, you're in for a romantic surprise! A gorgeous oceanfront view from the window of your cozy room, private Old Silver Beach waiting for a quiet hand-in-hand stroll, and a candlelit dinner from one of New England's top chefs! The Sea Crest is offering a Valentine's Day package that includes a luxurious setting, fireplace rooms, unforgettable views, and the pleasure of each other's company in an unforgettable setting, from $199 per night.
Fall Into a Bed of Rose Petals!
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
Nothing is as romantic as an ocean view right from your room. This February, starting at $141 per night, five Myrtle Beach Seaside Resorts locations are offering a "Be Mine" two-night getaway package featuring oceanfront accommodations, champagne, chocolates, a Valentine's Day balloon bouquet, a romantic dinner, and rose-petal turndown service. If you choose the Avista Resort, you also get breakfast in bed.
