Move over, Paris! While you may be the “City of Love,” the Sojourney Travel team has other ideas for romantic trips that you can take this year. We asked our advisors what their top picks were for those seeking a romantic experience and this is what they had to say:
Adi Berry – Riviera Maya, Mexico
The Riviera Maya region of Mexico is a popular destination for honeymoons. Aside from spa treatments and beautiful resorts, this area offers easy access to stunning ruins and crystal-clear cenotes. When you’re done exploring during the day, wind down in your suite and enjoy room service at one of the region’s many all-inclusive properties.
Lori Stephens – Tuscany
Tuscany provides a cultural richness that adds to its romantic flair and stunning landscapes. The historic landmarks and cobblestone streets make it feel as if you have stepped into a storybook. To make things even more special, many meals in Tuscany use fresh, local ingredients, further elevating a romantic dinner for two.
Ashley Thomas – Maldives
You had us at overwater bungalows. The Maldives are known for its gorgeous water and white sandy beaches. It is no surprise that this scenic spot would provide the perfect environment for sunset watching. The resorts offered in the Maldives are often at the peak of luxury and provide a secluded experience for the couple that wants to spend some alone time together.
Tiffiney Love – Virgin Voyages Cruises
If a cruise is more your style, don’t worry! Virgin Voyages provides an amazing experience for couples. The basic balconies include mood lighting, and the ship has several intimate hangout spots. The all-inclusive dinner options make it feel like you’re having date night every night that you’re on board. Some ships even offer a “Splash of Romance” package that truly elevates your vacation.
Renae Gunter – Island Windjammers Cruises
Island Windjammers Cruises offer a unique experience for those couples that want to break away from a traditional experience. These ships, powered by sails, take you to beautiful destinations where you can trek through rainforests, sip fruity drinks, and enjoy the company of your significant other.
Tara Wimbush – Cabo San Lucas
From horseback riding on beautiful beaches to watching sunsets on marinas – Cabo San Lucas truly has it all. Cabo San Lucas provides a mix of beach romance, adventure, and upscale amenities, making it a versatile destination for couples looking for a romantic getaway.
Kayla Smith – Iceland
Although it is not typical for a romantic getaway, Iceland has its fair share of romantic activities. From relaxing in geothermal hot springs to gazing at the Northern Lights as they illuminate the sky – Iceland is sure to provide a unique experience for those who want something less tropical.
Julie Defee – Sedona, Arizona
The stunning beauty of the red rock formations in Sedona make it the perfect place for couples to experience something new. The peaceful and serene surroundings provide the perfect opportunity to connect with nature and each other. Also, Sedona is known to appeal to those seeking rest and rejuvenation with its many wellness retreats.
