Luxe Valentine’s Day Getaways

When roses and chocolates are not enough, a romantic getaway to one of these islands would be perfect to celebrate the love you have for each other. Privacy is the ultimate luxury and these three locations do not disappoint.

Bora Bora

A mere eight hour flight from Los Angeles, Bora Bora continues to be the ultimate in relaxation and luxury. Instead of breakfast in bed, enjoy the first meal of your day in a canoe on crystal blue waters. Meals delivered to your door, a private pool and the ocean as your front lawn is what most consider to be the closest thing to heaven. The St. Regis Bora Bora is one of the most impressive accommodations in the South Pacific, combined with a distinctive interpretation of personalized service through it’s “St. Regis Butler Service,” offered for all of the resort’s villas. By simply pressing the “butler” button on the telephone, the team of St. Regis Butlers are available to facilitate requests, working as a liaison with all other service areas within the resort to ensure an enjoyable stay.

Cook Islands

A lesser known, über romantic getaway is the Cook Islands, offering some of the most diverse scenery of any island group in the South Pacific. The scent of frangipani lingers in the air, clear turquoise waters gently stroke the white sandy shores, and the gentle wind sways the fronds of coconut palms. You will normally receive a much better value for your money in the Cook Islands and the accommodations are amazing as well. The Pacific Resort Aitutaki is located on one of the most beautiful lagoons in the world; created for the traveler seeking a unique South Seas experience, luxurious accommodation and authentic Polynesian styling in a private tropical setting. A place where time is measured by the sun and moon, not clocks and watches, Pacific Resort Aitutaki is the Cook Islands finest Resort.
