Romantic getaways are a big deal in relationships. If you’ve got a partner that you love and cherish, you’re going to want to take them away on a dreamy, loving escape, to whisk them off their feet and help you show them just how much they mean to you.
But romantic getaways can get a bit pricey, can’t they? If you want to take your significant other to the best restaurants that serve champagne in fancy flutes, and if you want to set up with them in a luxury hotel, you’re going to have to save up! Waking up to sunny skies and sandy beaches with blue waves lapping at the edges, you’ve got to have cash to spare.
So let’s try and project how much cash you’re going to have to splash on a romantic break. And whilst we’re at it, let’s think about the best ways to spend your money for a vacation that’s going to woo your partner for you.
Book for the View
When you’re choosing somewhere for you and your loved one to stay, make sure you’re booking a room that has a view. If it’s got a balcony as well, the more the better! You can sit out there with your pink drinks to cool down from the everpresent sun, and really set a lovely scene.
When you have a view to look out over, you can wake up to some of the most picturesque landscapes and fresh air, once you pull open the curtains and open the window or french doors. It means you’re not locked up in a hotel room in a stuffy city, and you can escape the noise of bustling tourists and local commuters.
But how much is this going to cost? Well, on average, if you’re staying in one of the most luxurious (a.k.a., expensive) hotels in the world, it can be anything from $1000 a night. If you’ve got the cash, why not splash it for a weekend?
Book a Restaurant
You want to make sure you book into at least one high-quality, exclusive restaurant during your stay. Dine out in style and really sample the best of the food on offer where you are staying.
Often times, it is better to source your dining venues off the beaten track and away from the touristy areas to really get a good authentic experience. As a tourist, it can be tricky to know where to go but by searching online beforehand, for example, restaurants near the AMC West Chester, you can get a feel for what is on offer and find recommendations too.
Then Travel in Style!
The way you head out to your destination is going to leave an impact. A long haul flight can drain us entirely, and even make our legs all stiff, and the rocking of a boat taking us across the sea can make anyone sick after about 4 or 5 hours.
So, why not try to upgrade to first class on any one of these transportation modes? It might cost you about $10,000 on the best airlines out there, but most airlines offer an upgrade for about $1000 only. You might even have the gumption to look into hiring a private jet charter… Your own jet to take across the world with you, even if only for a few hours, is one of the most luxurious things you can do with your partner!
Splashing the cash a little bit, to take your partner on a trip they’ll never forget, is a dream a lot of us have. Why not plan ahead for the costs?
