Stunning Valentine's Day Staycations In Florida
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, you’ve probably found yourself in one of two places: a night or weekend planned down to the second, or scrambling to find last-minute plans.
Don’t drop hundreds of dollars on a flight or stress over out-of-state travel plans. We’ve narrowed down a few of the best Valentine’s Day Florida staycations to these luxury resorts.
The Atlantic Hotel & Spa
Start off your Valentine’s weekend at The Atlantic’s lush spa by choosing from two special spa packages: Red Hot Love, a 50-minute couples aromatherapy massage with a warm intimate bath soak and a champagne toast for $299, compared to its usual $65; and Berry Bliss, a 50-minute detoxifying cranberry facial and moisturizing strawberry masque with a sweet strawberry mimosa for $110, normally $140. For appointments, call 965-567-8086 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Later that evening, enjoy a romantic oceanside dinner at the resort’s newly renovated SKY bar from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. with a four-course prix fixe dinner ($59 per person). The delectable menu includes a lobster corn dog with cucumber-avocado salad, a mojito vinaigrette and sweet chile aioli; open-flame charcoal-roasted black Angus filet mignon, jumbo lump crab cake, roasted fingerlings, English peas, and cauliflower puree with thick-cut bacon lardons and toasted bread crumbs. End the night on a sweet note with passion fruit cheesecake and a chocolate-covered heart with raspberry gelato.
Hilton West Palm Beach
For those seeking a more chill and laid-back getaway, Hilton West Palm Beach is offering a sensual Valentine’s Day package for the lovers who need to disconnect from reality, if only for an evening. The $850 package includes a one-night stay in a deluxe guest room prepped with rose petal tea, an in-room cocktail or dessert upon arrival, as well as aphrodisiac essential oils to set the sultry mood for the night. Make your way across the street to Anushka Spa at CityPlace for an invigorating and arousing Duet Couples Massage to unwind and relax.
End your night with a bottle of bubbly over a luxurious steak dinner at the hotel’s restaurant, Galley. Choose from a variety of delicious signature dishes, like the wood-fired bone-in ribeye, Margherita pizza, Florida Keys snapper and crab cakes. If you'd like to be spoiled with a romantic dinner setting, Galley is offering a Sophisticated Steak Dinner for Two ($125). It includes a soup or salad per person, a juicy bone-in ribeye topped with grilled langoustine served with two sides, a glass of wine and Prosecco per person, and Galley's famous oven-baked couple. Get even more drunk in love à la Beyoncé with Galley’s mixology bar and its extensive offering of delicious specialty cocktails.
