Key Ingredients to a Romantic Getaway

A romantic getaway can be just the thing to rekindle the spark in your relationship. De-stress together on the beach and enjoy some well-deserved rest and relaxation. Your trip could involve a number of different activities in a wide variety of destinations, but there are a few key ingredients that can help foster the romantic atmosphere:

1.     The Beach

Oftentimes the most romantic and intimate getaways are located on or around a body of water. The sounds of waves can be very soothing, while swimming or splashing in the water together is a great way to get close and let your intimate feelings grow. A fun day on the beach can be a great way to re-ignite the flame in your relationship.

2.     Sunsets

Beautiful sunsets create a relaxing atmosphere that bathes the spectators in a transformative glow. Sunsets make the perfect setting for romantic dinners or strolls along the beach. Regardless of the location, a good sunset is an important aspect of a romantic and intimate setting.

3.     Food & Wine

Whether it’s a picnic on the beach or a restaurant outing, nothing quite sets the mood like a romantic dinner for two. Delicious food and exquisite wine provide the perfect opportunity for meaningful, emotional conversation.

4.     Privacy

Sometimes all that is required for romance is to have some quality time, away from the outside world. Set aside the worries of your everyday lives and simply enjoy each moment together. This kind of serenity provides the necessary environment for relationships to flourish.

5.     Getting Outside

Breathe in the fresh air! Whether you are strolling through a city park, hiking through an untamed forest, or sinking your toes in the sand at the beach, nothing inspires romance like reconnecting with nature. Don’t forget to bring a picnic with a bottle of wine for a little added romance!

6.     Mood Lighting

Mood lighting can turn any hotel room into a cozy, romantic space. Bring some candles or dim the lights to set the mood in your room after dinner. Start in the bathroom with a nice soak in the Jacuzzi before retiring to the softly lit bedroom.

7.     Pack Wisely!

To accompany the mood lighting, you should pack some of your favorite music and consider bringing speakers if you will be spending a lot of time on the beach. Anticipate what you might want for the trip and bring anything you have that will help to increase romance. Make sure to pack at least one nice outfit so you can dine at a fine restaurant if provided the opportunity.
