With romance-enhancing amenities like outdoor showers, beds under the stars, fireplaces, and special welcome kits that can certainly make a person feel more…welcoming, these 13 hotels and resorts set the mood in no uncertain terms.
Just off the beach on Collins Avenue, the hotel offers Asian-influenced guestrooms swathed in soothing neutrals and cool granite features. En suite bathrooms, some with soaking tubs at the foot of the bed, facilitate private in-room spa treatments.
The earthen Adobe-style suites at El Monte Sagrado are set back among vines and streams, like tree houses sprouted from the ground itself. This mountain resort, a member of Marriott’s Autograph Collection, is a haven for eco-lovers and spa enthusiasts.
On the northern shore of the lush island of Kauai, the Princeville St. Regis offers a luxurious spot for a romantic escape. In the Prince suites, picture windows in the shower overlook mountains and the bay, and flood the bathroom with natural light.
A desert sight to behold, with its perforated concrete and sculpted wrought iron, all shimmering in gold. Inside, a pool in the living room (no joke), glass walls, and mirrored ceilings reflect the gold-on-gold-on-gold color scheme.
