Paris, Verona and Bora Bora are some of the most romantic places on Earth, but is it possible that they are all this planet has to offer? Actually, there are hundreds of even more amazing places perfect for romance. They are much more private, quiet and gorgeous, so if you’re looking for a gorgeous getaway destination in 2019, here are a few unfairly neglected places that really know how to do romance.
Sure, Paris is the capital of romance, but that’s not the only destination in France that offers unforgettable vacations for two. Travel south to Languedoc-Roussillon region and get ready to sip some of the best roses in the world. Stay at one of the gorgeous properties with a private wine tour and get ready to get drunk on tasty vino and your lover’s eyes. If you want to go all out on romance, book a castle on Airbnb and feel like a prince and princess for at least a few days. During the day, explore rows and rows of vineyards and enjoy the warm sun of Southern France. In the evening, grab a seafood dinner for two and relax in the pool until you want to retire to your room.
This little icy island is not a go-to destination for romance, but it really should be. It’s small, secluded and covered with natural beauties wherever you turn! Make sure to book a private Blue Lagoon suite for the ultimate one-on-one relaxation. When you both rejuvenate, book a tour of volcanoes, pass the Seljalandsfoss waterfall, explore crustal ice caves and climb gorgeous glaciers. After a day of adventure, take up lodging in a secluded hotel and go out to watch one of the most magical and breathtaking spectacles on Earth—the Northern Lights. As neon greens, purples and yellows dance across the sky, you will feel blessed and happy in your loved one’s arms.
Another unusual destination for romance-searchers, New Zealand can melt even the hardest hearts of stone. Book a stay in Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch and from there, start to explore the islands. New Zealand is not one of those destinations where you can stay in one place—only by exploring The Land of the Long White Cloud will you get to see its romantic side. New Zealand is heaven for road trippers, so check out the Avis car rental offers, grab a vehicle (they have everything from utes to SUVs and luxurious BMW X5s) and get ready for the adventure of your life. All accessible by a good vehicle, visit Glow Worm Caves and take photos illuminated by bioluminescence or get down and dirty with your partner in Rotorua mud spa. You can also go all the way to The Mount Cook National Park and have an unforgettable stargazing experience while cuddling with your significant other.
If you want to have a very romantic, yet exotic and colorful vacation, try Kyoto! This amazing destination is speckled with gorgeous temples and beautiful gardens perfect for romantic strolls and cute picnics. In spring, you can even take a light boat ride on the Okazaki Canal lined with cherry blossom trees. Traditionally, these pink trees are a reminder of the passage of time and they will certainly make you feel blessed to have found your love as the delicate cherry petals dance in the wind.
Any Greek Island
No matter if you live for the beach, love to explore ancient towns or crave to try new and amazing foods, pick a Greek island and you’ll get your dose of romance and fun. There are nearly 230 inhabited islands in Greece and whichever you choose, you’ll get to enjoy breathtaking sunsets and sunrises, delicious wine and 5-star local food. However, Santorini is especially romantic with its blue-domed churches, white-washed houses and breathtaking Sea of Crete backdrop.
If sandy beaches are your definition of romance, Kauai is your destination. It’s a perfect place for all couples who just want to get away from everything and enjoy gorgeous beaches, tropical gardens, cascading waterfalls, and each other’s company. It’s a destination made for couples, especially those who love nature and its beauties.
These destinations will awaken the hopeless romantic in you that you didn’t even know existed. So, grab your loved one, book a trip and get ready to fall in love with each other all over again.
