If romance and organisation aren’t exactly your speciality, planning a Valentine’s break to surprise your loved one will probably leave your head spinning. Stay cool, calm and collected by following these simple tips. We promise, planning the perfect getaway will be an absolute breeze.

Play Detective

Drop some subtle hints in the weeks running up to Valentine’s Day. The aim is to find out your other half’s favourite spot for some R&R. Maybe there is an amazing spa hotel or spa treatments that they have been eyeing up recently or they are enamoured with the breath-taking scenery in a certain part of the country. Either way, your choice of mini break will show that you listen and truly care. You are guaranteed to score extra brownie points for putting in the extra effort.

Use Your Initiative

Just because this thoughtful gift is being bought as a Valentine’s Day present, does not mean you actually have to whisk your partner away on the day itself. Many proprietors cash in on the notorious love-fest by increasing their accommodation prices. By booking a weekend away for the end of January or February, you will avoid this peak period and save considerably. If you have chosen the former, the element of surprise will be magical. While with the latter option, you will both have something to look forward to.

Don’t Be Afraid To Ask For Help

If you feel a little clueless when it comes to pulling off a stylish weekend away, don’t be afraid to ask for help! Hotel staff are experts in this field. Their professional help and advice will certainly alleviate your stress levels – especially if you are thinking of popping a certain question during your stay. Contact the hotel beforehand to give them a heads up about your impending proposal. For an extra cost, they can help you to organise a romantic meal for two, with flowers and champagne in your guest room on arrival.

Two Words: Spoil & Pamper

Such a momentous occasion requires the ultimate treat. Spoil your loved one with a weekend break full of pampering spa treatments. Begin with a rejuvenating trip to the thermal suite to enjoy the perks of the sauna together. Book in for a sensual couple’s massage and afterwards unwind in the serenity of the relaxation suite. For added spontaneity and luxury, pre-order a platter of chocolate-covered strawberries to enjoy afterwards. Pure bliss.
