We strongly believe that travel is the food of love, not music! Admittedly we’re self confessed travel junkies but to us the most romantic experiences happen when you’re off on an adventure somewhere in the world. Seeking out the ultimate sunset, an epic landscape, a dramatic coastline or a serene idyllic paradise, there’s plenty of destinations around the world to choose from. So we thought we’d put together a few of our favourites. Some of these are tried and tested, others are unusual and different. So lets jump right in.
Yup this may sound like a weird choice to start with but hear us out. For a start we love Africa and South Africa is without doubt the easiest of the African nations to get about and jump right in to with daily flights. Check out the best flight deals from London to Johannesburg.
The great Joburg area is filled with hills that create an interesting rolling urban landscape with plenty of awesome places to watch the sun set while you sip a cocktail. There’s a growing number of luxury boutique hotels to escape the high rise chain hotels. The nightlife is varied and easily accessible near to many hotels so you’ll have no problem making the most of your nights. The food here is excellent too so a meal out with your partner is super easy. Plus it’s so easy to scape the urban sprawl and head out in to Africa, maybe split your time between the city and Safari! What could be more romantic?!
Maybe another surprising choice but this island nation is really well set up for the ultimate romantic stay. It has some of the most beautiful and epic hotels of anywhere in the world. Whether you stay at the famous Raffles hotel, or the historic Fullerton you’ll feel pampered and constantly in awe of the city skyline too. The centre is dominated by quite possibly the most lavish hotel in the city, the epic Marina Bay Sands casino and resort.
With the world’s highest roof top infinity pool overlooking the city you’ll be sure to impress your partner if you stay here! The cuisine in the city is second to none, whether you’re after award winning chefs from around the world or cheap local dishes, its all available. Singapore is a relatively small city too so getting around is very easy. You can even book a white London Taxi here or a luxury limousine. Flying here is easy from all over the world with plenty of competitively priced seats too.
How could we write a post about romantic cities without mentioning Paris! Without doubt the city of Love and highly regarded the world over as the most romantic place in the world for travellers. There’s no more romantic place to take stroll at sunset than the parkland around the Eiffel tower. There’s tonnes of amazing boutique hotels available in the city and as you can imagine the cuisine here is sublime.
Enjoy a glass (or three) of award winning french wine, soak up the Parisian atmosphere and enjoy the world famous museums by day, with epic city views by night. Flights from London to Paris are only 2 hours long so one of the easiest romantic getaways for Brits.
