How can you plan the perfect lover’s getaway without being overwhelmed? Where can you go that will simply recharge your relationship meter?
Love is all around
When you have stars in your eyes and love in your heart, spending quality moments with your other half simply fills you with immense joy. Whether you are looking for the perfect wedding venue, are newlyweds looking for a special honeymoon destination, or a couple celebrating your anniversary, you would want a place that you will remember fondly for the rest of your lives.
It does not even have to be a momentous occasion. For some couples, just getting away for some rest and relaxation together can already keep the spark of love alive.
Here are the top three recommendations of dreamy spots for a romantic getaway:

Ensconce yourselves in deluxe villas and rooms that afford you a peaceful view of the mountains. You can even choose to have your own private garden, dip in the Jacuzzi, or simply lounge and escape the cacophony of the city.
Embark on exhilarating adventures such as archery or air gun shooting or opt for more leisurely pastimes like golf or swimming. You can also simply indulge in the pampering services and treatments offered at the spa and wellness center.
When you’ve sated your appetite for leisurely pursuits, you can then treat your palate with fine food and drinks offered by two world-class restaurants. Toast to your union with refreshing drinks or cocktails from the pool bar, the cocktail bar, or from the sunset terrace.
