Chivalry is not dead. Instead of grabbing a last-minute box of chocolates and champagne, we suggest turning up the heat this Valentine’s Day. From a private helicopter tour around New York City to a castle island suite in the Caribbean, these getaway packages will definitely step it up a notch from a drugstore teddy bear.
A Private NYC Helicopter Tour
Whether you’re a visitor or a local, taking a private helicopter around NYC is a night to remember. The Chatwal, located in the Theatre District, is offering a two-night getaway package. As if that wasn’t enough, the package also entails personalized Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa amenities, a candlelight dinner at The Lambs Club, Veuve Clicquot on-demand, a custom scent at Scentarium, a chauffeur to take you around in a Benz, and breakfast in bed.
Your Very Own Beach Castle
Book a ticket to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and yes, you can stay in a two-bedroom, two-story Castle Island Suite (as in the suite is on its own private island!) at Sanctuary Cap Cana by AlSol. While at this adults-only paradise, don’t forget to take advantage of butler service, Spanish cooking classes, wine tastings, and gorgeous Caribbean sea views.
Tower of Love
You’ve booked your suite at Towers of the Waldorf Astoria New York, what now? Call upon Chief Concierge for some over-the-top ideas. Want flowers? They’ll add floating water lilies in the tub and flowering vines running down the wall. Is chocolate your vice? A life-sized chocolate figurine should do the trick. Or head up to the 19th floor for some serious R&R at the Guerlain Spa (champers and truffles included).
Romantic tidbit: John and Jackie Kennedy spent their wedding night in a Towers suite!
Kama Sutra and Wine
Chocolate and wine, sure. Kama Sutra and wine, now we’re talking! Things are getting steamy at Hilton West Palm Beach this February with the ultimate lover’s package. Upon checking in you’ll receive a Kama Sutra book to teach you all the tricks, a picnic basket to ensure that you have the most romantic day on the beach, and private sommelier class in your room followed by a romantic dinner for two in a luxe suite.
Frolic in the Sand
Playing in the sand might seem like a task for the kiddos, but not at The Reach in Key West. Take part in one of award-winning artist Marianne van den Broek’s couple’s bonding workshops and learn how to create sand sculptures of your favorite smokin’ hot celebrities (hello David Beckham sand abs!).
A Sexy Lingerie Fitting
Didn’t bring your sexy babydoll slip? No fret. Channel your inner Fifty Shades of Grey at W South Beach this Valentine’s Day when booking their Agent Provocateur Package. It includes a private fitting at Agent Provocateur’s shop in Bal Harbour, and obviously champagne and truffles. And afterwards, well, you can fill in the blanks.
Heat Meter Amenities
Ink48, A Kimpton Hotel, knows how to heat things up this Valentine’s Day with their Heat Meter Amenities program. Low heat involves a trip to the Museum of Sex and an aphrodisiac basket filled with love-inducing snacks. Medium heat spices things up with a copy of Go Green Between the Sheets and Make Your Love Sustainable, eco-friendly massage oils, and a private tasting in-room featuring sustainable wines selected by Kimpton’s Master Sommelier Emily Wines. And high heat includes a stay in a suite, a sexy one-hour photo shoot with Provocateur by Celimages, a keepsake 20-page book with your boudoir photos, and saucy amenities like wine, chocolate, and disposable cameras to get you in the mood.
