8 Incredibly Romantic Things to do at Sandals Resorts for Valentine’s Day
With Valentine’s Day a short 4 days away, it’s time to start planning ways to make this an epic one. For those lucky couples who plan on spending V-day 2014 at a Sandals Resorts or Beaches Resorts, we want to show you ways to up the ante even more! Sure, it’s enough to just revel in the fact that you and your love escaped to an exotic island in the Caribbean like superstars, but you can always make the trip even more romantic and memorable!
We’ll show you how to take full advantage of the most romantic day of the year at the most romantic resorts in the world. There are a ton of romantic things to do at Sandals Resorts. All it takes is knowing who to ask and where to go! Best of all, these options all work really well as surprises!
1. Candlelight Dinner under the stars.
Some couples really love the classics and setting up a private dinner for two on the beach under the stars is something Sandals Resorts does best. Keep it a secret from your love and surprise them or make it a dressed-up event that the two of you plan together. Either way, be prepared to be blown away by a stunning sunset, private waiter service and the best personally prepared menu ever!
1. A private picnic for two.
Everyone loves a candlelight dinner under the stars, but if you prefer to keep your nights free for other plans (*wink wink) you may love a mid-day picnic. Choose a lovely garden spot under an palm tree or underneath a garden gazebo and escape for a few hours with a basket full of delicious bites and a bottle of wine. Bring something that you know your significant other loves to make the moment even more special, like a a favorite book to read from. If you’re staying at a Sandals resort with its own private island, ask about having your picnic set up on the island. It doesn’t get more private than that!.
2. Private in-room Couple’s Massage.
A couple’s massage on the beach or on a private island is an amazing experience, but if you prefer to skip the formalities and continue a day locked in your suite, call down to Red Lane Spa to arrange a massage in room. A professional masseuse will set up your room with all the heavenly scents Red Lane is famous for and transport you and your lover to nirvana.
3. En-suite Valentine’s Day transformation.*
Picture it: You and your sweetheart get all dressed up for an evening and head to dinner at La Parisienne. You take a stroll along the beach, stop for a drink at the pub, listen to a musician in the courtyard and then head back to your room. You open the door and you both find your room transformed to a suite of love with rose petals scattered over the bed, candles set up everywhere, a plate of chocolate fruits and sparkling wine. Your sweetheart is blown away to find a bubble bath drawn for the both of you to enjoy. This is the way you do a romantic valentine’s day surprise!
4. Send a Bouquet of Flowers.
Guys, imagine the look on your lady’s face when in the middle of breakfast or dinner she’s surprised by a bouquet of stunning tropical flowers. You know she loves flowers, make her day with a lovely bouquet just for her!
5. “Set the Mood” Chocolate covered fruits and Sparkling Wine.
We know you’ve come prepared for this honeymoon or vacation. You’ve downloaded all your favorite romantic songs and made an epic playlist. You have your night planned out but you want to add the icing on the cake. A quick call placed in the morning to the front desks, your concierge or your butler can see your night started right with some chocolate dipped strawberries and a bottle of sparkling wine. Now the only thing left to do is to enjoy the treats and then each other!
6. Bamboo River Rafting tour.**
We can’t forget about our adventurous couples. Ladies, if you know your husband or boyfriend loves the outdoors and is a little awkward at romantic dinners, why not arrange a fun but private tour for the two of you! A Bamboo River Rafting tour is the perfect way to take in the beauty of the island with a slow and smooth drift down a local river with a private guide. You can both just sit back in each other’s arms and bask in the beauty of Jamaica. Make sure you bring a camera to capture your outdoor Valentine’s Day ride; it’s a really gentle ride!
7. Beach like a celebrity for the day.
We’ll bet you anything in the world this is how Beyonce and Jay Z do a beach day! For an exclusive Valentine’s beach day, you can arrange to have a private cabana ( seriously, a sign will be put up that says “reserved for [your name here]”) with a butler for the day who will take care of all your needs. So, while you and your lover lay under a private cabana, stocked with towels, ice, drinks and mixers, a butler will bring you lunch, snacks or special drinks from the bar. Dirty banana, anyone?
8. Roast Marshmallows by the fire pit.
Sometimes, all it takes is a simple gesture to make someone’s day. If you’re beau is more of the low key type, you can both grab a S’mores package prepared for you by the resort and huddle around one of the many fire pits around the Sandals’ properties that have them. Make S’mores, laugh together, snuggle and just enjoy the feeling of being on a romantic island eating s’more over an open fire with the love of your life.
To set up any one of these romantic escapes, call down to or visit the front desk or sales office for pricing and availability. If you’re a Club Sandals or butler guest, call down to the concierge lounge or call your butler on your private phone to start planning!
*If you have a butler room, your butler can help set this up for your at no additional cost.
**The Bamboo River Rafting tour is only available at Sandals Resorts located in Jamaica.
