5 Romantic Things to Do on Vacation

5 Romantic Things to Do on Vacation

It is finally here! That romantic vacation you have been planning for so long is now about to get underway. To help you get the most out of your time together, Crane Concierge has put together a helpful list of 5 romantic things to do on vacation:

1. Watch the Sunset

There are few things more romantic than watching the sun set in paradise with your significant other. Take it all in from the comfort of your balcony or enjoy a leisurely stroll down the beach holding hands. In either scenario, surrender to the moment as this is an experience you will never forget.

2. Book a couples massage

Serenity Spa Barbados


Get pampered! Indulge in a luxuriously soothing massage with your partner and feel the stresses of everyday life evaporate. Serenity Spa at The Crane offers an exquisite Couples Journey inclusive of a Rose Petal Couples Massage, facials, manicures, pedicures and lunch!

3. Hang the Do Not Disturb sign

Go ahead, spring for room service – you are on vacation! Lock yourself in your hotel room for hours on end and truly reconnect. Do not forget to ask your Room Attendant for a ‘Do Not Disturb’ notice outside the door!

4. Dine at a fancy restaurant

Zen Restaurant (2)

Have an epicurean adventure! Explore the world with your taste-buds and each other! From the Old World tastes of Southern Italy in The Crane’s D’Onofrio’s Restaurant to the delicacies of Japan and Thailand in Zen, you will be spoilt for choice!

5. Capture the moments

As with any other special occasions in your lives, remember to capture the moments! Be sure not to limit your vacation snaps to just scenery - politely ask passers-by to snap photos of the two of you together. While at The Crane, be sure to check out William Chan Photography Studio which offers beautiful lifestyle sessions either in-studio or around The Crane. Make your romantic holiday last forever!
