The Philippines is known for its beautiful beaches and friendly people, making it one of the most popular destinations to travel to for couples and even families. Although there are over 7,640 islands to visit, our favorite one for a romantic getaway is Bohol. You can stay at one of the few amazing resorts such as Amorita, Henann, Amarela or Eskaya where you can indulge yourself with spa days and fine dining, or head to the beach for some sun and water activities. But there’s more to Bohol than the water and sand. You can rent a car and/or driver and explore the Chocolate Hills, take a boat ride down Loboc River, or see one of the world’s smallest animals—the Tarsier—at the Tarsier Sanctuary. Bohol is peaceful and doesn’t get as crowded as some other islands like Palawan or Boracay, allowing you to really enjoy spending more time together without all the hustle and bustle.

Rather than heading to Tahiti for a romantic destination, we opt to spend our vacation time with a loved one in Moorea. While soaking up the heat and swimming in the clear water is a given, we also love sailing on a Catamaran, tasting local favorites via a food tour, jet skiing, going on an intimate snorkeling boat ride (lunch included) or hiking to the Afareaitu Waterfalls. If you’re staying at a resort on the water such as Manava, Sofitel or Intercontinental, you and your partner can relax and enjoy the scenic views all day right off your own private dock. Regardless of what you do, Moorea is a perfect romantic destination we know both of you will love.

Skip the craziness of Paris and spend your romantic vacation in Aix-en-Provence, a city in Provence, France surrounded by the countryside. Aix was founded in 122 BC by the Romans and did not become part of France until 1487, which is why you’ll notice the architecture throughout the city is both Romanesque and Medieval. This makes for beautiful, intimate views you can both enjoy as you explore the alleys and enjoy hours sipping on a drink of your choice on a terrace. You can also go outside of the city and conquer Sainte-Victoire Mountain or embark on a private wine tour at one of the surrounding vineyards. If you’re looking for a place to stay, we recommend checking out the boutique hotels in the city such as Hotel Le Pigonnet or Villa Gallici. Whenever you decide to go, Aix a remarkable destination for couples to spend a weekend in, carefree.

Romania is a vast country covered with trees and mountains, where you can capture some of the most beautiful views on a camera or in your memory. Bucharest is a popular destination, but we prefer something a bit quieter like Sibiu for a romantic escape. Located in Transylvania, Sibiu is a charming city with 16th and 17th-century architectural buildings that are no more than two stories high (although some newer hotels tower the city). We love Sibiu for the outdoor cafes, museums, Păltiniș (a resort in the mountainous part of Sibiu), cathedrals and small alleys lined with restaurants serving local cuisine. As far as accommodations, the most luxurious ones are the Hilton, Casa Nicolae Luxury Suites, Continental Forum Sibiu and the Ramada by Wyndham. Once named the most heavenly place to live in Europe, Sibiu continues to draw in couples and families from around the world who seek a peaceful weekend escape.
