Maldives, Soneva Fushi
If you’ve ever dreamed of whisking your loved one away to a private island, Soneva Fushi resort in the Maldives will bring that dream to life in pearly-white shorelines and brilliant blue water. Everyday distractions lie far away from this island in the Indian Ocean, which includes a mere 65 residences. Spend your days on a private sandbank and your nights beneath the stars at the open-air movie auditorium. Ask your personal butler to book a couple’s massage at the world-renowned Six Senses Spa. And reserve a night for a private dinner for two on Dolphin Beach, where you’ll be alone on the sand, with only the glow of lanterns and the soothing ocean at your side.
It would be cliché to list Paris … if it wasn’t so uniformly considered the world’s most romantic city. You can share a baguette on the banks of the Seine, wander the elaborate and elegant gardens of Versailles, sample the treats of famous chocolatiers and indulge in some of the best restaurants in the world. And for Inspirato members, the Champs Elysées, Arc de Triomphe and world-famous museums are steps from your residence at the Majestic. But the real reason to walk arm in arm is the city at night, when dazzling lights float along ancient bridges, illuminate storefronts on cobblestone streets, flicker on the rippling river and soar into the night sky up the Eiffel Tower.
Valentine’s Day falls in the heart of ski season, and our favorite Rocky Mountain vacation this time of year is the glitz and glamour of Aspen. There’s simply no ski destination that transitions so effortlessly between thrilling downhill activity and elegant living. Steal away with your favorite ski partner to three great mountains – Aspen, Snowmass and Buttermilk – so that you find fresh adventure each day. Then treat yourselves to designer attire from one of the town’s posh boutiques and go out for a world-class dinner. Montagna is a must-visit for its five-star cuisine and breadth of wines, from a Napa Chardonnay to a fine Bordeaux red.
If gloriously white ribbons of shoreline and the culture of Paris are too hard to decide between, why not try some of each on St. Barts? The gorgeous, secluded beaches are the ideal place to lounge with a lazy smile on each of your faces while the Le Sereno staff attends to your every need. At night, the Parisian influence is clear in the delectable meals at the island’s fine restaurants. It’s the unrivaled elegance that will truly help romance flourish, though, whether you clink glasses at a chic beachside martini bar or sleep late in your residence finished by a famed French designer. The two of you may never want to leave.
