Mostly A’s: A scenic escape
It looks like you’re in need of a city escape this Valentine’s Day! You’re both ambitious and busy which often means finding a little downtime can be hard. We would recommend you check in to Dolder Grand in Zurich, Switzerland, if you’re looking for a little fresh air. This fairytale castle has all the elements needed for a picture perfect moment, whether you’re celebrating your recent engagement or looking for the spot to pop the question! Reserve their special “Grand Love” package which includes accommodation and an impressive eight-course Valentine’s dinner in The Restaurant, as well as romantic room decorations. For some pampering, traveling lovebirds can also book the “Valentine’s Couple’s Celebration” package, which includes an exclusive spa experience in the Spa Suite, a mud or steam bath, a massage of facial of their choice, and champagne and canapés.
If you’re more in need of a countryside retreat, we would recommend the Coworth Park in Ascot, England. This peaceful manor provides the perfect location for some one on one time with their special Valentine’s Day package. This includes accommodation, a bottle of Veuve Clicquot, indulgent chocolates and a full English breakfast. Couples can also indulge in a relaxing face or body spa treatment at the award-winning Spa at Coworth Park, or delight in Valentine’s Afternoon Tea in the Drawing Room. Don’t miss out on the Valentine’s Tasting Menu with canapés and champagne to start, followed by a menu of classic British dishes, tea or coffee, and a single, elegant red rose. Otherwise, if you prefer something a little more casual The Barn will also be serving a custom menu for the holiday.
Both locations are perfect for any adventurous couple looking to get out of town for a romantic weekend!
Mostly B’s: A change of City
You love the city, and don’t want to miss out on all the excitement for this romantic weekend so why not switch things up a little and migrate east? London is the Valentine’s Day destination this year! On the more contemporary side, 45 Park Lane is offering an overnight package including a bottle of Laurent Perrier Rosé champagne, chocolate hearts, a full English breakfast the next morning and a late check-out at 2PM. On Sunday, February 14, guests will enjoy a Valentine’s Day menu at CUT at 45 Park Lane, Wolfgang Puck’s debut restaurant in Europe – an absolute must if you’re looking for the latest spot!
If you and your significant other are interested in the more traditional side of things, The Dorchester is the place for you. Located in the heart of London overlooking Hyde Park, you can enjoy a romantic overnight package for two. This features a bottle of Laurent Perrier champagne, chocolate-dipped strawberries, and a full English breakfast, as well as late check out at 2PM. Guests can also select an array of treatments from The Dorchester Spa and receive complimentary Aromatherapy Associates gift for treatments booked during Valentine’s Weekend.

Throughout the month of February, book the “Romantic Escapes” package, inclusive of one or two nights of accommodations, a $100 resort credit, romantic décor and a welcome bottle of champagne. Rates starting at $570 per night.
If you would prefer a romantic dinner for two without the overnight stay, we would recommend Evo. This modern Middle Eastern and Mediterranean fusion restaurant offers an exceptional dining experience with their special 5 course Valentine’s Day menu and wine pairing. The perfect twist to this year’s Valentine’s Day.
These wining and dining experiences will be sure to feed you’re foodie addiction with just the right touch of romance!
Mostly D’s: Spa Escape
Although you love a good meal, nothing will quite hit the spot this year as a day of pampering for you and your loved one.

The brand new “Renew Your Heart” menu for Valentine’s Day offers an extensive list of options to show yourself and that special someone some love.
