Romantic Couples Retreat
If you are feeling like you need a romantic couples retreat because your relationship is in a stall mode, you have several different options.
First, you could book a hotel in your local community. Although it is difficult these days to manage schedules, do your best to make it a surprise. Use a search engine, local travel agent or online visitors guide to find a really cute bed and breakfast, small inn, or luxury hotel. Believe me, if you go to all of this work and take your loved one to a Super 8, your relationship problems will only grow. If you are traveling inside of California, check out Getaways for Two for some suggestions.
A truly romantic couples retreat is going to differ for every pair. While some may enjoy staying in the room for an entire weekend, others may enjoy spending time going on long walks, browsing in downtown shops or dining in romantic cafes. Whoever is doing the planning should keep in mind the needs of the other. Another thing to think about is the length of your getaway. If you can only manage checking in late one night and checking out early the next morning, you may want to plan for a different weekday or weekend. To get the most out of it, it is best to have at least two full days and one night for your romantic couples retreat.
Of course, you can use our Romance Inside a Box to decorate your hotel room prior to checking in. Just contact the hotel and inform the front desk or manager of your intentions. Don't forget to bring a good bottle of wine or champagne to go with your romantic retreat. The key is to keep this as a surprise from your significant other. You may arrive at the hotel together, but you need a distraction in order to get the room decorated (unless you are here in one of the California cities that we service and we are doing it for you). One good idea is to set up a short spa appointment and have your better half join you back at the room when they are all done.
