Don't save your vacation just for anniversaries; we give you all the permission to celebrate your love whenever you feel like it. Besides, after years of interrupted plans for reasons that, ahem, we don't need to talk about, don't you and your partner deserve quality time alone somewhere other than your living room couch? Courtesy of Andaz West Hollywood A quick getaway to the Caribbean is often enough to avoid some of the worst moments of winter stagnation, especially when you're heading to a place as sexy as St. The glamorous island of the French Antilles is known not only for its elegant hotels, but also for its many quiet white sand beaches and romantic watering holes.

From the East Coast, you can fly to Puerto Rico in less time than most road trips, making it an attractive long-weekend destination during the winter months. Its capital, San Juan, is also one of our favorite cities for couples because of its mix of beautiful historic buildings and lots of charming, intimate restaurants. If you're looking for a budget hotel that's the perfect place to enjoy a romantic weekend, stay in Vanderbilt County, located in the elegant Condado district.

In addition to the elegant beachfront villas, there is also a new spa and wellness program that includes many in-room services, such as massages for couples and personalized baths.

For Valentine's Day, the hotel has created the romantic package The Love is in the Air, which includes everything from a candlelit bath to a private dinner hosted by a concierge in the Versailles-inspired gardens.
If dusty white snow is more your thing than dusty white beaches, there are plenty of ways to make a ski trip romantic.

The hotel, with direct access to the ski slopes, has the only rooftop pool in the area and also houses the seasonal Winter Pool House Champagne Terrace terrace, which, covered in green and white flowers, is perfect for enjoying a sensual cocktail. After the track, couples can also enjoy a restorative treatment at the Pendry Spa, which has six private treatment rooms and personalized couples' massages.
There are few places in the United States as remote or as beautiful as Montana. But if your thing isn't your thing in a puppy tent, check out Paws Up's glamorous and rustic excavations.

With a whopping 37,000 acres of undeveloped land in one of the most beautiful corners of Montana, near the Rocky Mountains, the resort is the ultimate in luxury seclusion.
Winter adventures here include everything from dog sleigh rides to romantic horse-drawn sleigh rides, and Spa Town, a series of charming white tents that contain a full-service spa inside (we fainted after the two-hour hot stone treatment). Western food is served at its best here. Head to the hotel's Pomp restaurant for tender steaks and one of the best wine lists in the state.

We all know that the Hudson Valley is going through a moment. And unlike some of the popular seaside towns near New York City, this bucolic area just a few hours north of the metropolis has a lot to offer year-round, from skiing in the winter to breathtaking hikes in the summer. But until this fall, it lacked a property worthy of a destination; the kind of place where you splurge for a special anniversary or a romantic weekend getaway. All that changed with the opening of Wildflower Farms, a tranquil haven set against the stunning backdrop of the Shawangunk mountain range.
All rooms are standalone cottages, making them perfect for an intimate couple's vacation, but there's also plenty to do on site, from the sumptuous Thistle spa and outdoor hot tubs to the excellent farm-to-table cuisine at the hotel's Clay restaurant. Or, if you're looking for a more urban getaway, stay at an Airbnb in the city of Hudson, where you'll find restaurants, bars, and shops within walking distance.

And no hotel in the area is better for couples than Hotel Wailea, a boutique hotel with suites and, above all, for adults only.
And if you want to enjoy a vacation where you don't have to plan anything, check out Curtain Bluff, an all-inclusive service with delicious food, thankfully, and lots of activities to create emotional bonds on site, such as snorkeling trips to Cades Reef or tennis classes for couples. .
