Still wondering what to get your loved one for Valentine's Day? Why not treat yourself and your honey at the same time by jetting off to an exotic destination, checking into a luxury hotel, and then booking one of these seriously indulgent couples' spa treatments?
1. Casa Velas, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
An intimate hideaway on Mexico's Pacific coast, Casa Velas has the additional allure of being an adults-only resort — so, no pesky youngsters to interrupt the mood here. After a day strolling the beach, head for the hotel's spa after dusk and indulge in their signature Romantic Moonlight Experience. Under the stars, on the ocean's edge, therapists utilize a combination of relaxing techniques and carefully selected essential oils to give you and your partner a full body massage with soft pressure. It's all capped off with a sparkling wine and strawberries with chocolate.
2. Viceroy Riviera Maya, Mexico
Also strictly adults-only, and on the Atlantic side of Mexico, Viceroy Riviera Maya offers a couples' massage influence by Mayan culture. The Xaman Ek (SouthStarAbundance Ritual), named for the god of travelers, takes place al fresco in a couples massage room, surrounded by lush rainforest and a waterfall. The masseuse uses a love oil to balance chakras and realign the romantic energy between you and your partner. Afterward, you'll be immersed in a bath tub carved from a Zapote tree and infused with herbs from the hotel's own garden. What's more, all of the hotel's villas have private outdoor showers, where butlers set the scene with rings of candles, petals strewn along the walkway and aphrodisiac massage oils and soaps.
3. Jade Mountain, St. Lucia
With its stunning open-walled guest sanctuaries with private infinity pools and its mesmerizing views of the spectacular twin Pitons, Jade Mountain is one of the most alluring romantic retreats in the world. To up the romance factor even higher, book the intense Alchemy of Two spa ritual. The treatment begins with treats and poetry in the hot tub, followed by a synchronized side-by-side massage with Tantra Vibrational Oil. The ritual concludes with you and your partner being anointed with male and female elixirs, improving vitality for afterward.
4. El Conquistador Resort, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, Puerto Rico
Overlooking the convergence of the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea from its dramatic 300-foot clifftop perch, El Conquistador occupies 500 acres on the eastern tip of la isla del encanto. At the Waldorf Astoria Spa couples can indulge in the Majestic package, which includes a side-by-side Waldorf Astoria Signature Aroma massage paired with either a reflexology or Indian head massage to unwind and destress so that you can focus your mind on each other. The treatment is all performed in the privacy of the spa's couples' treatment suite.
5. Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas
In your private sanctuary high above bustling Las Vegas Boulevard, you and your loved one can embark on a three-hour-long journey a deux at Mandarin Oriental. The Art of Romance treatment, offered in the spa's Dragon Suites, begins with a welcoming foot ritual for both followed by softening body exfoliations. Your quality time together continues as you both soak in a hydrotherapy tub filled with therapeutic bath elixirs followed by personalized full-body massages.
