Book These Luxury Hotel Couples Deals For Valentine’s Day And Beyond
Luxe packages-for-two in Central America, Europe, Florida, Jamaica, Latin America and more.
Spanning from the merely splurge-worthy to mind-bogglingly extravagant, hotels are increasingly luring couples with luxury getaway deals for two. These upscale offerings—which can stretch into six figures—can augment already extravagant stays with a dizzying roster of VIP amenities. Here, a handful of enticing couple’s deals to consider booking for Valentine’s Day and beyond.
Located on Nicaragua’s Emerald Coast about a two-hour drive from the Managua airport, Rancho Santana is a sprawling retreat set on 2,700-acres blending lush tropical forest—featuring 21 miles of hiking trails, a sea turtle sanctuary and howler monkeys barking from the treetops—with an unspoiled shoreline prized by surfers. The property also boasts a 6,000-square-foot hilltop spa with sweeping forest views, five beaches, three pools, a horse stable, tennis and pickleball courts, and an organic garden that fuels four restaurants.
That self-sustaining ethos extends to the furnishings and beams made from local hardwoods inside the handsome guest suites, and an on-site iron mill that churns out intricate aluminum chandeliers, lamps and handrails for The Inn at Rancho Santana and the property’s spacious private residences. There’s also a general store that offers dry goods and branded Rancho Santana coffee, along with homemade jams, kombuchas, baked goods, charcuterie and pasture-raised pork, chicken and beef.
But most of the guest dining happens at the ranch’s four on-site eateries. Signature dishes include the coffee-rubbed pork chop and plantain hash at La Finca y El Mar, fish tacos and chicharrones at La Taqueria, shrimp paella at La Boquita, and an array of healthy juices, smoothies and breakfast bowls at El Cafe, a centrally-located spot at The Inn overlooking a rocky beachfront where most guests begin their morning.
Named one of the top five resorts in Central America by Conde Nast Traveler, Rancho Santana is leaning further into luxury with a Taste of the Good Life package for two. The deal includes five nights in a luxe residence, daily three-course meals on the beach, a private sunset catamaran cruise, outdoor activities spanning from surf lessons to horseback riding, unlimited yoga sessions and spa treatments, a tour of the historic city of Granada, zip-lining through the treetops of Mombacho, and a charming boat trip through monkey-inhabited Las Isletas.
Guests can end a day of off-site activities by gazing upon the jaw-dropping crater at Masaya, an active volcano that glows with molten lava. The Taste of the Good Life deal even includes a personal photographer to document the whole experience, just in case your iPhone snaps don’t fully capture the stunning surroundings. Starting at $12,000 per couple
