Is there a special person you’d like to surprise with a romantic getaway? Making plans for such a holiday can be quite an adventure; however, there may be times when you wonder whether you’ve covered all the bases or have omitted an important detail. A good way to plan a romantic holiday is with the help of the internet, but you could spend hours, even days working your way through all the information. Here are just a few tips that are all you need to
make your romantic getaway a memorable one.
- Pick the Right Accommodation
Choosing the right kind of accommodation is what will make your getaway a romantic one. It doesn’t matter where in the world you are, if the accommodation isn’t right, it’s going to spoil all your plans. There’s plenty to choose from when it comes to places to stay, but what would you rather? A hotel filled with unruly guests and hordes of children or the choice of one of the many villas in Spain where you can relax, unwind and enjoy each other’s company without any interruptions.
- It Won’t be Like the Movies
We’ve all watched a Hollywood movie in which the stars enjoy a romantic getaway in a 5- star suite with a bottle of champagne on ice. This really isn’t reality at all, and you need to
realise that rather than getting caught up in trying to recreate such a fantasy. A romantic escape should be something you and your partner will enjoy. Book something that matches both your interests, tastes, and budget.
There are things you can do to make your getaway special. For example, if you’re staying in a hotel, it may be possible to pre-arrange gifts or other personal items to be placed in the
room before you arrive. It might be a song that has a special meaning, a sentimental item such as a photo of you together enjoying your first rollercoaster ride. Whatever gift you choose, personalisation is the key.
Another idea if you want romantic bliss is to fully embrace the culture of the country you’ve decided to visit. If you’re staying in a villa, this is going to be easy because you’re staying in
amongst local people who are going about their daily lives undisturbed. Enjoy walking in the streets during an evening and sipping wine in a local bar. Partake of the local cuisine and don’t be afraid to try new things.
- If Something Goes Wrong Deal with It and Move On
Even if you plan your romantic getaway down to the last detail, there’s still a huge chance that something is going to go wrong. It’s likely to be something very minor, but if you let it, the problem will spiral out of control and end up ruining your time away. Even if it’s
something major, such as a hotel that looks nothing like the website photos, you have to deal with it and move on. Don’t let anything spoil your romantic escape and hopefully, this will be something you can both agree on.
One last tip is for you both to ditch your phones. Try unplugging from the world and focus on each other for a few days.
