These are the best hotels for couples, scattered in breathtakingly beautiful destinations around the globe.
Best romantic hotels in the US
The US may not be known for romance in the same way that European countries practically ooze it, but these hotels turn ye ole stars and stripes a lovely shade of pink.

Check each hotel’s website to see exactly what to expect, and be sure to review state and local restrictions before booking.

- Nayara Springs in Costa Rica and Jade Mountain Resort in St. Lucia are your best options for a romantic escape during the first half of 2021, since these countries are currently welcoming US travelers — though COVID-19 screening measures apply. Before booking, confirm the travel restrictions in the country you’d like to visit.
Nayara Springs — San Carlos, Costa Rica
This adults-only boutique resort is only accessible to the outside world via a 250-foot pedestrian bridge. It’s that secluded, deep in the Costa Rican rainforest.

- Daily yoga sessions included
- Located in Arenal Volcano National Park
Jade Mountain Resort — Saint Lucia
Jade Mountain’s serene sanctuaries are the closest thing to heaven this side of the universe. The land, sun, stars and your significant other are the standout sensory experiences, as guests are asked to leave their phones on silent mode.

Cap Rocat — Balearic Islands, Spain
Sleep in an ancient island fortress located on east of mainland Spain. Cap Rocat is renowned for the glamorous restoration that transformed a 19th century military citadel into a magical Mediterranean retreat.

- Yacht through the Mediterranean during the day
- Gourmet, locally-sourced cuisine
Taj Lake Palace — Udaipur, India
First built as an island palace for an Indian prince, Taj Lake Palace is like a Far East-fairy tale come to life. You might recognize it — the James Bond movie Octopussy was filmed there.

- Rooftop solarium with unbelievable coastal views — and lots of champagne
- Clubhouse by the Sea has beach terraces and a dock
The Kayon Truly Ubud Resort — Bali, Indonesia
Hidden away in the lush privacy of the Ubud rain forest preserve, Kayon Resort is built on a series of stone hills. Upon arrival, you’ll instantly smell the ylang-ylang, jackfruit, coconuts and durian growing in the magical gardens. Take a dip in the infinity pool, which hovers above the river.
