When was the last time you and your significant other took a trip together, just the two of you? We know how it can go: work, kids, pets, housework, etc can easily get in the way and distract us from slowing down the pace and relaxing with the one we love. Planning time away may sound daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. We’ve selected six of our favorite hotel spas to give your getaway planning a head start. Pick one with a spa package that caters most to you and your partner, and treat yourselves. Let us help you turn that dream of a romantic getaway into a romantic reality.
We’ll kick off our romantic tour with the spa at the Newport Marriott in the historic downtown district of Newport, Rhode Island. Their full-service spa features everything from body scrubs and body wraps to facial treatments and couple’s massages. They even have a special Mother-to-Be massage, designed specifically for the expecting mother. Take a dip with your main squeeze in one of the many nearby lakes or pools at the hotel, or reserve a table at the nearby Mooring Seafood Kitchen and Bar. If you don’t live within driving distance of Newport, fly into Providence. From there, you’ll just be a quick 45-minute drive to this resort-style hotel.
For fitness lovers who need relaxation but crave the workout, the Ritz-Carlton in Georgetown is the place for you. This unique luxury hotel has special guest rooms called Wellness Rooms that have ditched the usual desk chair for yoga mats and exercise balls. Log some time at their renovated fitness center which boasts state of the art equipment and provides runners with a jogging map of the historic neighborhood. After getting your sweat on, their talented spa therapists relieve stress through rejuvenating facials, pampering beauty services, stimulating body treatments, and many more relaxing services. Whether you like to work out, get pampered, or both, put this hotel spa on your shortlist next time you and your honey visit the nation’s capital.
Looking for a luxurious experience near the coast? The Gaylord Palms Resort outside Orlando is only one hour away from the beaches of the Atlantic and two from those of the Gulf. Their Relâche Spa (meaning “let go” in French,) is the perfect place for you and your sweetie to sink into relaxation and reconnect. Their Side-by-Side couple’s massage is a must-do. Then, choose from their extensive offering of facials, skin rejuvenation therapies, hair and scalp treatments, and more. After spending a day at the spa, be sure to explore the hotel’s locally-inspired glass atriums. Each one represents favorite destinations from around the state and are even home to native plants and wildlife. There’s no way to not love this palace paradise located in Kissimmee (kiss me?) Florida.
If you’re a couple who loves the outdoors, the Lost Pines Resort and Spa should be your next getaway destination. This rustic retreat is located right on the Colorado River and less than an hour from Austin, TX. Horseback ride or hike through the pine trees surrounding the resort, or kayak the river to take in the scenery. When it’s time to relax, the Spa Django at the resort offers rejuvenation for your body as well as your mind. Their mantra is “I awake,” which they incorporate into every treatment. Plan ahead and book the Soulmate Sunset package for a couple’s massage, champagne toast, and the whole spa to yourselves before they close for the night. Share these moments together, and find your chi alongside your boo.
If you’re on the lookout for a place that’s eco-friendly, organic, and has natural products, this it is. The Paco Diablo Spa is all about intentional ingredients, making them one of the best naturalist spas around. Nestled against a backdrop of the red rocks that Arizona is known for, the Paco Diablo Resort is a healing place for the mind and soul. Indulge yourself with their Red Rock Getaway package, complete with a Swedish massage, aromatherapy facial, and a clay foot mask designed to reduce dryness and rejuvenate your feet. Treat yourself, your loved one, and the planet too at this romantic desert oasis.
For cooler temps and higher elevations, make your way to the Cheyenne Mountain Resort in Colorado Springs where gorgeous mountain sunsets are nothing but romantic. Their Alluvia Spa offers rooms for two, a private outdoor patio, and complimentary tea to add to your relaxation. Dip your toes in their whirlpool tubs, then hop over to the steam rooms to detox and hydrate together. Celebrating a special occasion? For the ultimate experience, book their Rendezvous for Two package. You’ll be welcomed with champagne and will enjoy a three-course dinner and breakfast buffet at the resort’s acclaimed restaurant. What a beautiful way to celebrate your relationship!

Honor your relationship and your busy schedules by treating yourselves to a spa day. Nothing can bring you peace and relaxation like a full body massage or a soothing skin treatment.
