Ingredients for the Perfect Romantic Getaway

Whether you just want to spend some quality time with your loved one, celebrate your honeymoon or even pop the question, a romantic getaway is the perfect way to do it. The only problem is making sure you get everything just right.

So, what makes the ideal romantic getaway? And is there a recipe you can follow for the perfect holiday for two?



For a true romantic break, no one wants to be staying in sub-standard accommodation or eating at fast food restaurants. The first ingredient that you need for your break, therefore, is a little touch of luxury.

Choose a hotel or resort with good quality accommodation and attention to detail. Ideally you should choose somewhere that is all-inclusive so you won’t have to worry about airport transfers or where your next meal is coming from.

Good resorts should also offer extra services like massages, spa treatments and of course, a romantic breakfast in bed. Some of the best resorts for couples are located in the Caribbean Sea and the Indian Ocean, on islands such as Martinique, The Bahamas, Mauritius and The Maldives, so why not take a look there?


Beach life The last thing that you want on your romantic break is coachloads of tourists, screaming children or nosy neighbours to interrupt that perfect moment. Most good resorts will have adult only areas so you can relax knowing that the peace and quiet won’t be shattered by kids diving into the pool.

For real solitude, try the resorts located in the Indian Ocean where you can stay in rooms looking straight out onto the clear blue waters and enjoy the landscape of these unique islands.


Relaxing is all well and good, but even the most romantic breaks need a little excitement and passion. Make sure you choose a resort with a good selection of high quality activities to keep your partner on their toes.

Even outdoor activities can be romantic, so try horse riding along deserted beaches, scuba diving in Caribbean waters or even swimming with sharks, to add a little adrenaline to your trip and make it even more memorable.


Having a beautiful backdrop for your romantic getaway is a must, but finding the perfect spot isn’t always easy. Read all available reviews carefully to ensure you don’t get any nasty surprises at your chosen location and for extra reassurance choose a holiday company with a good reputation and a history of providing high quality holidays.

Club Med is the perfect example of this; the company offers luxurious resorts in some of the most beautiful regions of the world. For more information on unforgettable romantic holidays, visit and see what inspiration you can find for your romantic getaway.
