Whether or not you are committed to Valentine’s Day and all the hype it ensues (hi, rose petals, chocolate covered strawberries and sweeping romantic gestures), an intimate getaway during the depths of winter should certainly be enough to convert even the most anti-Valentine. These three boutiques are chilling the champagne and calling lovers’ names for a last minute getaway this Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day Getaway #1: Mi Amor
Mi Amor (@miamortulum): The name says it all. Translating to “my love” in Spanish, this adults only retreat along the Mayan Riviera is a longtime best-seller for couples in the portfolio of Small Luxury Hotels (@smallluxuryhotels). The property embodies intimacy, with only 17 rooms, all of which are surrounded by lush jungle or the turquoise of the Caribbean Sea, private plunge pools and secluded cabanas that beckon couples to do nothing but get lost in one another. If you can’t book in for the weekend of love, why not reserve it for a belated getaway?
Valentine’s Day Getaway #2: The Battery Hotel
The Battery Hotel (@thebatterysf): With only 14 suites, this luxury boutique welcomes couples into a private club without all the austerity. Its laidback retro-classic decor reflects the pulse of its surroundings in downtown San Francisco. The location is ideal for couples who want to explore the city’s culinary hotspots; make your restaurant reservations in advance for one continuous date night throughout your stay.
Valentine’s Day Getaway #3: The Soniat House
The Soniat House (@soniathousehotel): Occupying a 19th-century Creole townhouse in the midst of New Orleans, a junior suite at this 30-room boutique will have couples feel as if they’re checking into a historic bed and breakfast but with all the modern luxuries they deserve. The adults-only property is a dream for couples invested in design and architecture; the owners regularly rotate the collection of art and antiques to each room and are on-hand for a history lesson if so desired.
