Valentine’s Day is coming up. Rather than stress out over a present for your romantic partner, best pal, or yourself, why not give the gift of a fabulous daycation experience at a hotel or resort? Whether you’re in the market for a mini couples escape, want to treat your BFF to a Galentine’s day outing, or are in the mood for a self-care staycation, ResortPass has your perfect match. Get ready to fall head over heels for everything from spa treatments to private poolside cabanas.
Set within the otherworldly beauty of the saguaro cacti-dotted desert, JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort & Spa is a true oasis. The couple’s package provides access to the outdoor multi-level pool, lazy river, and waterslide. Sharable bites and drinks to cheers to love are available to purchase from Plunge. It’s the ideal experience to enjoy with that special someone (romantic or platonic).
Big Sur, California
Surrounded by breathtaking central California coast scenery, Alila Ventana Big Sur is a nature-filled refuge that draws romance-seekers from near and far. What better way to soak in the spellbinding beauty and reconnect with your significant other than a couples pool day pass to float in the adults-only headed pools, infinity hot tub, and Japanese hot baths as well as a delicious lunch? Since it’s inevitable that you won’t want to leave, maybe go ahead and just book that spa treatment in advance.
Wine and romance go hand in hand, which makes a daycation at the luxurious Carneros Resort and Spa in vino-centric Napa the perfect option. The splurge-worthy “Bundled Up in Love” package includes lounging by the vineyard-view pool, lunch at Hilltop Dining Room, as well as a romantic spa experience complete with a 60-minute couples massage, sweet treats, and mimosas to toast to an incredible Valentine’s Day.
Los Angeles, California
Located in the heart of Los Angeles, the completely re-imagined Fairmont Century Plaza is the ultimate urban escape that feels like a vacation without leaving the city. The most zen part of the hotel, the spa invites gal pals and singles seeking an afternoon of self-care to relish the pleasure of a dry cedar sauna, eucalyptus steam room, aromatherapy rain shower, Himalayan salt room, and endorphin-boosting workouts (if that’s your speed).
The aptly named enamorarse (which means to become enamored in Spanish) dining experience at The Ritz-Carlton Naples, Tiburón is a completely irresistible way to spend Valentine’s Day evening. During the candlelight dinner for two in a luxury poolside cabana, a dedicated served will pop a complimentary bubbly and bring out one gourmet course after another. It’s basically the most perfect date night ever.
Quality time with your favorite person and pampering? Now that’s a Valentine’s Day well spent. The couple’s spa day package at âme Spa and Wellness Collective combines a relaxing soak followed by an aromatherapy massage for two in a private suite. Afterward, spend time in the steam room, Himalayan salt room, and outdoor heated pool. BTW there’s no rule stating you need a romantic partner to take advantage of this exceptional experience, bring along your mom or bestie for a special Galentine’s Day treat.
Not that anyone needs an excuse for some well-deserved pampering, but a celebratory occasion like Valentine’s Day certainly helps. Carillon Miami Wellness Resort & Spa offers daycationers access to the outdoor heated cabana pool, whirlpool, food and drinks, and the world-class thermal experience—an herbal laconium, crystal steam room, multi-sensory cooling rain, sauna, foot spa, vitality pool, heated loungers, an open-air rooftop HydroSpa, and Miami’s only arctic mist igloo. In the mood to upgrade the indulgence level? Consider adding on a 50-minute massage or facial.
West Palm Beach, Florida
Looking to infuse a little fun and sun into your Galentine’s Day (well, the weekend) plans? The Hilton West Palm Beach has you covered. Gal pals can make a splash in the outdoor heated pool, catch some rays on the lounge chairs, order food and drinks (maybe a bucket of Highnoon on special or a bottle of rosé) from La Playa Poolside Bar & Grill, and dance the afternoon away while the poolside DJ spins tunes.
Ready to rev up the romance this Valentine’s Day? When the temps dip, heat things up alongside your sweetie at the upscale Omni Las Colinas Hotel in Irving, just northwest of Dallas. Lovebird can cozy up for a delicious meal under the twinkling lights in a heated igloo overlooking Lake Carolyn. Amour-inducing extras such as a complimentary bottle of champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries are sure to have sparks flying immediately.
