    Top 5 Places to Fall in Love Again

    By Kimberly Dijkstra


    If only life were like the movies and “Happily Ever After” lasted forever. In the real world, relationships take work and sometimes you need a break from the usual humdrum days to reconnect. A trip to an exotic locale together, where you can remember what you love about each other and make new memories, will revive the romance in your marriage.


    Here are the top 5 romantic getaways for married couples to rekindle the relationship. 

    Wine Tasting Weekend – Napa Valley, CA


    Sometimes all it takes is a quick getaway to reignite that spark. You’ll be sure to feel it when you slip away to wine country for the weekend. There are dozens of vineyards and wineries to choose from in the legendary Napa Valley, each with a distinct personality. Many offer wine-tasting packages for couples and infuse your visit with romance at every turn. 


    Beyond wine-tasting, Napa is home to award-winning spas and restaurants. Book a hot air balloon ride at dawn for breathtaking views of the valley. 


    Oahu, Hawaii


    There may be no place in the world more magical than Hawaii. Oahu, known as the heart of Hawaii, is the third largest island and exceptionally wonderful for couples. With sun-kissed beaches, misty waterfalls, and geologic wonders, there are lovely romantic spots around every bend. 


    Sign up for a couples surf lesson on Waikiki Beach or go for a romantic drive up the Pali Highway where you’ll encounter spectacular views of the coast. Visit the Honolulu Museum of Art and Shangri La to see collections of Western, European, and Polynesian art, and stroll through open-air courtyards and ponds in between galleries.


    The serene Byodo-in Temple is a hidden gem nestled in a lush valley. Everywhere you go is another opportunity to reawaken the love you’ve been missing.


    Nantucket, MA


    An escape to Nantucket might be just the ticket to restoring the romance in your relationship. The tiny island off the coast of Cape Cod possesses a unique coastal beauty that lends itself well to love stories. 


    Stepping off the ferry onto Nantucket’s cobblestone roads and strolling past the weathered buildings is a bit like being in a storybook. Three lighthouses around the island stand as beacons in the dark and fog. 


    For a perfect evening, book a sunset cruise for stunning harbor views and dinner for two at an intimate restaurant.


    Dunton Hot Springs – Dunton, CO


    For a cozy mountain retreat, consider Dunton, Colorado, known for its natural mineral hot springs. Deep in the San Juan Mountains of the Rockies, the village is a restored 19th-century ghost town. 


    Things get steamy in the hot springs all year round, especially with the mountain romance package. Sign up for a couples massage and whatever stresses you arrive with will melt away. 


    The remote location is ideal for couples to snuggle up by the fireplace and enjoy the quiet alpine setting. 


    Hedonism II – Negril, Jamaica


    If what you’re craving is a truly sexy getaway, try Hedonism II, a clothing-optional, adults-only resort in Jamaica. Its signature “Romping Shop Playroom” is a safe and non-judgemental space to explore and rediscover yourself and your partner, and other guests too. Feel free to play out your innermost fantasies there – everyone else is. 


    It’s all about self-indulgence and sensuality at Hedo, where there’s gourmet dining, premium liquor, daily activities, nightly entertainment, and excursions like scuba diving and kayaking that take advantage of the Caribbean paradise all around.
