Whatever stage your relationship is at, Valentine’s Day is a balancing act between being too kitsch and too cool. But this is no ordinary present buying affair, it is awash with implications … something anyone might need a little help with … so whether you are dropping a surreptitious hint to your partner or looking for a little inspiration, here are some Spabreaks.com suggestions for every Valentine’s date!
First dates are always awkward and you don’t want to overdo it, but if you are going out on Valentine’s Day it is entirely appropriate to do something a little bit special.
Where To Go? Sofitel So SPA.
Why? Their So Romantic package is just the right balance of time to treat and time to talk … with an aromatherapy massage and a Fleur de Bali facial each (boys, it’s time to show off your metrosexual side) before enjoying a glass of rose Kir Royal and macaroons together!
To Kiss Or Not To Kiss? Guess it depends on whether you opt for a second glass of Kir Royale.
The wonderful thing about being newly in love (and the utterly stomach churning aspect for everyone else) is the feeling that you simply don’t want to spend any time away from one another whatsoever, so you are probably looking for something with a dual treatment then?
Where To Go? Bishopstrow House and Spa.
Why? Rasul treatments for two must have been made for times like this, probably explaining why it’s included in Bishopstrow’s Valentine’s Day package which also involves a glass of champagne, a two course lunch, and if you can bear to tear yourselves apart for around sixty minutes, you can also have a back, neck and shoulder massage, a facial with a luxury scalp massage, and girls are treated to a little extra with a file and nail polish – ring fingers at the ready ladies.
To Kiss Or Not To Kiss? We sort of assume this is a pre-requisite.
Pop the Question
Proposing requires a very special ambience, so our suggestion for this one comes personally from a member of the Spabreaks.com team who asserts that the view of Windsor Castle makes for the kind of romantic milieu fairy-tales are made of.
Where To Go? Harte & Garter Hotel and Spa in Windsor.
Why? If it goes well, the one night Valentine’s spa weekend includes a champagne breakfast and a choice between a one hour Rasul mud treatment for two or a couples massage … if it doesn’t go so well then you are within one mile of the M4 and a speedy getaway.
To Kiss or Not To Kiss? You’ve kinda got to go with the mood on this one.
Basking in the newfound glow of marital bliss, ‘Smug Marrieds’ are still staring dreamily into one another’s eyes across candlelit dinners, but are secure enough to be able to enjoy a little time apart as well.
Where To Go? Fairmont St Andrews.
Why? There is a particularly beautiful golf course and the package includes full access to the Signature Spa … so you can do your own thing before getting together for that romantic three course meal. Plus you are given complimentary handmade chocolates, and not that you need it, but nothing says ‘I love you’ quite like chocolate.
Time for Two
When you become a parent, a lot of noise and no time for yourself is par for the course, so a little peace and quiet and time together is definitely in order.
Where To Go? Burnham Beeches.
Why? It’s bad form to make a lot of noise on a golf course, so the venue’s proximity to the The Lambourne Club should ensure peace and quiet while the round of golf, mini facial and aromatherapy massage mean that you get a little time just for you … you decide who gets what … before having dinner together at the award winning Grays Restaurant – an environment where it is definitely frowned upon to invite your Lego to partake of the soup of the day.
To Kiss Or Not To Kiss? Go on, the kid’s aren’t watching!
Whoops! What did you do? … well, there are a few ways to make it up, whatever it was – first, accept it’s your fault, even if it’s not … today is not the day; and second, presents – lavish presents …
Where To Go? Rookery Hall.
To Kiss Or Not To Kiss? If she doesn’t kiss you, you are going to need a bigger present.
