Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so what better way to spoil your partner rotten than with one of our luxury romantic escapes? Whether it's a hot-balloon ride through the Atlas Mountains or a luxury ski retreat at the wilderness Whitepods, we can tailor make a holiday perfect for your needs. Take a look through our top five valentine breaks for some inspiration.
Zighy Bay, Oman
Escape to the remote and luxurious Zighy Bay, where you can arrive by 4x4, speedboat or - for the truly adventurous - by paraglider landing in the bay with awe-inspiring mountains all around. Each private villa comes with infinity pools, a personal wine cellar and a 24 hour personal butler.
Set in peaceful isolation in the Swiss Alps, Whitepod is an original, 'wilderness-style' mountain living concept. You'll have access to a private ski run (so no queues or crowds) dog-sledding, torch-lit night skiing and tandem paragliding . Once you've had your fill, you can snuggle up in your pod with your loved one and take in the breathtaking views of the mountains.
Kasbah Tamadot, Morocco
With spectacular views of the Atlas Mountains, this intimate Kasbah offers instant relaxation just 45 minute drive south from Marrakech. Wander around the beautiful terraced gardens full of fruit trees, cacti and roses. Visit the hammam and spa or take a romantic hot-air balloon ride over the mountains. Round your day off at the restaurant, overseen by the chef who trained at Raymond Blanc's Manoir aux Quat' Saisons, or stop by at the rooftop bar for al fresco dining and fantastic views.
Babylonstoren, Cape Town, South Africa
This stunning new property is a 240 hectare working wine and fruit farm in the Drakenstein Valley between Franschhoek and Paarl. Surrounded by the majestic Simonsberg, Du Toitskloof and Franschhoek Mountains, Babylonstoren is in the heart of the Cape Winelands. Spend your days exploring the surrounding wineries or rowing a boat on the lake.
Hotel & Spa Rosa Alpina, Italy
Hotel Rosa Alpina, located in the small village of San Cassiano, is surrounded by the beautiful Dolomite mountains and has the warm atmosphere of a chic alpine lodge, with log fires and a Michelin-starred restaurant. It's also home to the original Daniela Steiner Beauty Spa where you can enjoy a massage and any number of beauty treatments. If you're looking to surprise your loved one, we can lay on a bouquet of roses and bottle of champagne in your room.
