No matter how long you’ve been together, every couple needs to take some time out of their busy lives every now and again to reconnect and rejuvenate their relationship. Even a short break in a new location, with time to relax, unwind, and enjoy each others’ company can do wonders for your sense of intimacy. If you haven’t taken a holiday together since your honeymoon, now’s the time to make a change. Try one of these beautiful romantic destinations this year.
Bali is one of the most romantic locations in the world, so don’t miss out on everything this incredible island could do for your love life. There are countless gorgeous beaches to choose from each day, delicious cuisine around every corner, and a laid back atmosphere that’s ideal for spending quality time with the person you love. Check out villas in seminyak for rent so you can have the privacy and luxury you deserve while you enjoy your romantic break. Unlike some other Bali hotspots, this beach area has the secluded environment you’ll need to really feel close with your partner again.
You don’t necessarily have to leave the country to spend some much-needed one-on-one time with your partner. There are plenty of beautiful spots right here in Australia. For example, Daylesford in Victoria is home to some of the country’s most luxurious and pampering spa destinations. What better way to lay back and focus on the love you have for each other than by getting massages all day? The spas are easily accessible from Melbourne, and offer plenty of wonderful treatments that will get you feeling back to 100% again in no time. Pick an intimate and cosy B&B in the area if you want to spend the night.
Kangaroo Island is another true Australian gem. It’s secluded enough to offer you complete intimacy with your partner without being overrun by tourists and holidaymakers, but has enough to do to keep you busy if you start getting on each others’ nerves. You can relax on the beach, enjoy the gorgeous views of the ocean and wildlife, and stay up late chatting and drinking wine in one of the island’s beautiful holiday cottages. The only downside – you’ll probably never want to go home.
Malborough Sounds, New Zealand
If you’re a couple who wants to refresh your relationship while sipping on some tasty fine wine, travel a little further down south to New Zealand. The world-famous Malborough Sounds region offers visitors its Classic New Zealand Wine Trail, a veritable wine-tasting adventure through some of the best wine farms in the world. The region has a wonderful and eclectic mix of rugged landscape and serene seaside spots. You can take in the jaw-dropping mountainous scenery, snap a ton of couple selfies, and drown your troubles in delicious wine and scrumptious food. Hiking some of the more scenic sections of the trail is ideal for more adventurous couples, and will allow you to burn off all those wine calories as you go. Summer is usually the best time to visit, so plan your romantic getaway in the month that will allow you to sit back and enjoy the view from one of New Zealand’s most renowned wineries.
