Romantic Travel Destinations

From Indian Ocean archipelagos to South American deserts, there’s a perfect romantic getaway for you. Whatever your taste or style, this list will help you find your ideal destination.

1. The Maldives

The islands of The Maldives are the most romantic places I have ever been to. Overwater bungalows, pink and orange sunsets, and romantic dinners in the warm Indian Ocean air make them the perfect places for a romantic getaway or honeymoon. Read my blog post about the Maldives here.

2. Venice

Steeped in history and full of narrow passageways leading to secret bridges and pretty canals, Venice is the perfect place to get lost in loveโ€”both literally and metaphorically. A starlit gondola ride is the pinnacle of romance here. Read my blog post about Venice here.

5. Bali

The most romantic hotel I have ever stayed in is Hotel Tugu in Bali. Set on a black sand beach, the lush gardens and museum-like public rooms all have little tables where guests can eat at any time, making each meal feel like it could be straight out of a movie.

Sitting like teardrops in the Indian Ocean, Mozambique’s islands are some of the remotest and most private places in the world. Like Zanzibar without tourists, they are some of the best places for a secluded romantic getaway in Africa. Read my blog post about Mozambique here.
