Top 5 Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day Around the World

Giving your significant other a box of chocolates and a dozen roses for Valentine’s Day may say you care, but a couples’ getaway in the middle of a harsh Canadian winter is truly the best way to say “I love you.” It’s time to turn up the heat by sailing through the Caribbean, soaring over California or simply staying close to home.

Whether you’re celebrating with your favourite person, your friends or your pets, here are 5 unique ways to feel the love this February:

Luxury in Los Angeles:
For a magical getaway sure to spark all kinds of romance, look no further than The Hollywood Roosevelt in Los Angeles, where legendary film stars Clark Gable and Carole Lombard started their infamous affair. To help set the mood, The Hollywood Roosevelt’s Love is in the Air package offers the perfect setting for a passionate escape—private dinner, car transfers and a 30-minute helicopter ride with champagne overlooking the city await! (Offer available on bookings made by February 21, for travel between February 1 and 28, 2018.)


Relax in Riviera Maya:
Will You Accept this Vacation? While most couples only dream of following in the footsteps of their favourite celebrity power couples, Sunwing offers the chance to make your most romantic dreams a reality with luxurious amenities and five-star service at the adults-only El Dorado Maroma in Riviera Maya—just like Chris Leroux and the bachelorettes did on this season of the Bachelor Canada. This spectacular resort offers unique accommodations with the Palafitos, a series of overwater bungalows that were named one of the top collections in the world. Watch the most breathtaking sunsets from your private ocean-view balcony and bask in the romance.

Utah in a Yurt:
Nature-loving couples will love the chance to snuggle up in close quarters in one of the USA’s best-kept geographical secrets. Nestled in the corner of red-rock country, Escalante Yurts offers luxurious accommodations for a romantic escape through unique trail heads, petrified forests, countless rock formations and the world-renowned Calf Creek Falls. Yurts not your style? has a wealth of unique accommodations to suit every couple, from house boats to tree houses!

Explore the Exumas:
“Let’s run away together. Buy a boat and sail the world, just you and me…” The timeless line is featured in more romantic movies than can be counted, but the dream is something that every couple can make a reality with The Moorings, the world's premier yacht charter company specializing in exclusive vacations around the world, including the Exumas in The Bahamas. World-class service and tailor-made luxury await during an off-the-beaten-bath cruising vacation.

Forever in France:
Put yourself in the driver’s seat of your own getaway this Valentine’s Day with a luxury self-drive boat rental through one of the most romantic countries in the world. Europe’s number-one boating vacation company, Le Boat, gives you everything you need to explore some of the world’s most magnificent—and romantic—destinations in the world, including UNESCO World Heritage Sites, vibrant cities and hidden island gems. Plus, with new itineraries launching in Canada in 2018, you’ll be able to recreate your magical getaway at historic cultural sites in your own back yard.
