The World’s Most Romantic Rooms
Valentine’s Day, February 14th, may be the one day each year dedicated to love, but we jetsetters believe in seeking romance year-round and worldwide. When booking your next amorous adventure, try staying in one of the world’s most romantic rooms. We’ve found five fabulous suites that have such stunning views, decadence, and perks that you’ll be sure to fall in love with travel, and each other, all over again.
Conrad Maldives – Rangali Island, Maldives
Fall in love with luxury at the seaside Conrad Maldives Hotel. Situated on two secluded islands, Conrad Maldives offers overwater spa suites and villas, access to resort yachts, and is home to Ithaa, the world’s first all-glass underwater restaurant. For the ultimate in one-of-a-kind experiences, spend the night in the world’s first underwater hotel suite. With enough notice, the hotel will convert their restaurant into a private suite under the sea, complete with an intimate champagne dinner and breakfast in bed. If sleeping with the fishes isn’t in your plans, check into a private Sunset Water Villa. Accessed by jetboat, each lagoon-adjacent villa features a rotating circular bed (for better sunset views), a terrace Jacuzzi, a private chromatherapy infinity swimming pool, and a glass-floored living room looking down on the teeming marine life below.
The Oberoi Amarvilas – Agra, India
The Kohinoor Suite at the Oberoi Amarvilas in Agra takes a room with a view to the next level with sweeping vistas of the Taj Mahal. Built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal, the Taj Mahal is a monument to eternal love. What better backdrop for your romantic rendezvous? The suite itself is named after the legendary 105-carat Kohinoor diamond, and includes a living room, dining room, study, and spacious master bedroom, along with three private open-air terraces perfect for candlelit dinners. A glass-encased rain shower, in-room couples’ massages, and dedicated butler service complete your stay.
The Ritz-Carlton – Powerscourt, Ireland
Just launched at The Ritz-Carlton in Enniskerry, Ireland, Powerscourt is a new suite that offers privacy and romance: The Suite with No Number. You’ll find opulence everywhere you look, from gold chaise lounges and a petal-filled bath for two, to chandeliers, candlelight and cocktails, to dining outdoors on the heated terrace overlooking Sugar Loaf Mountain. Spend your days exploring nearby Dublin, or relax in the lap of luxury. Unwind in the steam room or take a rain shower for two. Nibble on chocolates with your champagne, indulge in an in-room Strawberries and Cream spa treatment, and curl up with red silk throws while you wait for breakfast in bed to arrive.
Rome Cavalieri Hotel – Rome, Italy
Artists and tastemakers will feel at home in the penthouse of the Rome Cavalieri Hotel. Here you’ll find high design, whether in the Karl Lagerfeld sofa set originally designed for his Paris home, the Warhol series hanging in the bedroom, or the fiber-optic star-spangled ceiling. An elevated hydromassage tub offers views of Rome’s skyline. Bathrooms are paneled in precious marble with malachite inlays, and the taps are made of Swarovski crystal. Up the suite’s staircase, a glass ceiling slides open to reveal your private roof terrace with a gazebo, solarium, mini pool, and panoramic views of Rome.
Post Ranch Inn – Big Sur, California
During a stay at the Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur, California, you’ll find yourself living on the edge, literally. Stay at the Cliff House, a 960-square-foot suite with a deck extending over a ridge overlooking the Pacific Ocean—a view you’ll appreciate even more from the custom steel spa tub on the terrace. During the day, indulge in spa treatments either en suite or at the spa, including shaman sessions, where a healer uses the forces of nature to improve your physical and emotional health. In the evenings, find romance under the night sky while stargazing with one of the largest hotel telescopes in the U.S., before relaxing in front of a wood-burning fire.
