Planning a romantic rendezvous with your beloved this Valentine’s Day but do not want to be a part of the crowd? We’ve got you covered. Here are seven luxurious resorts off the beaten track that are sure to steal your heart while also rekindling your romance. Bon voyage!

Matinloc Resort

El Nido, Palawan, The Philippines

Set between a white-sand beach and a lush hillside, Matinloc Resort in El Nido, Palawan, seems to emerge straight out of a fairytale. The Philippines has over 7,000 islands and El Nido is among the finest, known for its dramatic limestone formations, clandestine lagoons, plush coral garden, prehistoric caves and waterfalls. Set on this tropical paradise, Matinloc Resort is a divine haven for couples, boasting of premium guestrooms and upbeat suites, complete with jacuzzis and rich, tasteful décor.

Maritime adventures like scuba diving are only a part of the wide range of activities the resort offers. You can either rent a kayak or go snorkelling — or better yet, fly between islands through a zipline! We’d recommend joining the Matinloc Tour — arranged by the resort itself — where you get to island-hop and explore hidden beaches in the vicinity.

Grand Hotel

Kempinski High Tatras

Štrbské Pleso, Slovakia

The High Tatras, replete with lofty peaks, emerald green lakes and furrowed hiking trails, is home to the Grand Hotel Kempinski High Tatras, located on the shore of Lake Štrbské Pleso. The deluxe guestrooms and suites in this opulent resort perfectly blend the historic extravagance of royals with the luxury and comfort of today. Heavenly aromatherapy massages at the hotel’s Zion Spa and a heated pool bathed in the soft light of the chandeliers above serve as ideal excuses to stay indoors for a relaxed afternoon with your beau.

The area around the hotel is ideal for cross-country and downhill skiing in winter. If your partner has a thing for breathtaking views and adventure sports, opt for nature walks, a trip on a hot air balloon, paragliding or bungee jumping. The hotel arranges all of this and much more to guarantee you an unforgettable experience.
