Properties Virtually Guaranteed to Ignite a Spark

The best romantic hotels, after all, are ones that inspire relaxation and passion.
Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa, Maui, Hawaii
Stargazing, beautiful beaches and champagne? It’s hard to beat that when it comes to romance. The Hawaiian Islands have long been considered one of the world’s top romantic spots. They are also ideal for gazing at the stars, thanks to their idyllic location. In fact, this is one of the few places on the planet where you can see both the Southern Cross and Northern Star.
By staying at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa, you’ll not only be able to enjoy stunning views from your private lanai, but you’ll have the opportunity to join director of astronomy, Eddie Mahoney, on the rooftop where a huge reflector telescope awaits, along with strawberries and a bottle of champagne.

Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa, Cook Islands
If Hawaii isn’t a distant enough escape, about 400 miles southwest of Tahiti in the middle of the South Pacific lies the lagoon of Aitutaki in the Cook Islands, often ranked among the world’s most beautiful places. The panoramic views alone are absolutely to die for.
This luxurious resort hosts the island chain’s only over-water bungalows. It also offers a jaw-dropping outdoor playground where you can enjoy snorkeling, kayaking and motu walking — a popular local activity that involves wading through the calm, shallow waters between islets.
The long, picture-perfect beaches that are the color of champagne seem perfectly made for strolling hand-in-hand with the one you love.

Hallmark Resort, Cannon Beach, OR
One of the world’s top destinations for romance, Cannon Beach is situated along the wildly beautiful Northern Oregon coast. While it’s fantastic year-round, in the wintertime you can often enjoy some great storm watching. There are few things better than cozying up together in a luxurious room next to the warmth of a fireplace as the waves crash just steps away.
The Hallmark Resort offers all of this and more, sitting right along the shore allowing guests to take in the panoramic views of the Pacific and iconic Haystack Rock. The suites each boast a private balcony, whirlpool tub and gas fireplace, and you’ll have the opportunity for an in-room couples massage as well.
When the sun makes an appearance, you can enjoy strolling the beach and hiking miles and miles of picturesque trails through old growth forest.
