February, 2008 – On a Valentine's Day getaway, a loved one expects nothing but the best - and that includes the hotel. With that in mind, the boutique and luxury hotels booking site Luxique has selected its top five romantic destinations for 2008.
Every survey insists that Paris remains Europe's most romantic city and the Hotel de Crillon, a palace commissioned by Louis XV, is among the crème de la crème of luxury hotels in the French capital. Its previous guests include Prime Ministers, Presidents and pop stars, so discretion is guaranteed.
Many cities in India have a romantic aura, but perhaps the pick is Udaipur in Rajasthan. The 18th century Taj Lake Palace is a fairytale of white marble and mosaic that shimmers over four acres on the calm waters of Lake Pichola. Staff dressed in immaculate tunics make guests feel like maharajahs.
Many Americans like to head down to the Hawaiian islands if romance is on their mind, and the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea has a paradise setting with amazing places to share views of the ocean and the sunset. There's also a world class spa and an impressive art collection.
The Burj Al Arab in Dubai has been called an "Arabian Nights Fantasy." With its famous design resembling a billowing sail, it's surrounded by choreographed colour sculptures of water and fire. The duplex suites all feature remotely-controlled lighting, curtains and air conditioning... and a choice of thirteen pillows!
For those looking for absolute romantic seclusion, there's Le Taha'a, an exclusive hideaway in French Polynesia on what's often called "the Vanilla Island." The resort hotel has 48 over-water suites and 12 beach villas and offers a special programme called "Romantic Rendezvous."
Luxique's Chief Executive, Alex Brey, commented: "These are some of the best hotels money can buy. They all have something special about them and we're confident guests at any of these will have an unforgettably romantic experience."
