Granted, I’m not the person most prone to romance at the moment. But that doesn’t mean you lovebirds shouldn’t take advantage of some awesome Valentine’s Day-themed contests to spark romance on the road.
NileGuide is offering a free trip for two to Paris. It includes a week-long apartment stay, an intimate dinner at Les Deux Magots, tickets to the Eiffel Tower and a chance to see The Kiss in person. The contest is open to all U.S. residents over 18 and runs until February 21.
Considering that budget might be a problem so soon after Christmas, HostelBookers, the budget accommodation specialist, unveils its best hostels with private rooms. They showcase some charming guesthouses, boutique hostels and intimate B&Bs with romantic room designs.
There are a vast number of cool hostels for couples who have a keen eye for design and detail. Many of these boutique hostels are located in some rather romantic cities too and make perfect Valentine’s Day destinations.
With a vast range of Amsterdam hostels to choose from, Cocomama doesn’t take bookings for groups larger than five, so guests are guaranteed a lovely atmosphere at this small and intimate hostel. It has a pleasant garden, high ceilings letting in plenty of light and pretty dangling chandeliers. This new boutique hostel is not far from the Red Light District and trendy Amsterdam bars and cafes are also close by.
Lisbon Dreams Guesthouse is one of HostelBookers top-rated hostels. It is located in the heart of Lisbon and the famous Baixa and Bairro Alto districts are a short walk away. It is the perfect hotel alternative with all the loving little extras: bathrobes, slippers and a delightful sunny patio where guests can enjoy their free full breakfast each morning or aperitifs and appetizers in the evening.
Riad Les Jardins de Mouassine is an oasis of calm in the heart of Marrakech. The central courtyard is subtly scented with the perfume of two orange trees and furnished in the style of a Berber salon. Every room is uniquely decorated but equally seductive with tiled en suites. Fatim-Zahra is on hand to ensure total relaxation with mud wraps, Moroccan or hot stone massages and essential oils to pamper you in the on site hammam.
Serenity at Home is housed in a beautiful brownstone building on a tree-lined street in Brooklyn. This is an opportunity to see a different side of New York with Manhattan just a short subway ride away. The local area of Lefferts Manor boasts charming cocktail bars, an easy-going atmosphere – helped by a university nearby – and beautiful examples of Neo-Renaissance and Romanesque Revival architecture. The spacious, romantic rooms are also tastefully decorated with a personal touch.
HostelBookers is also offering one lucky couple a FREE Valentine’s hostel stay! Entrants simply need to upload their most FUN couple shot while travelling together to the HostelBookers Facebook page to be in with a chance of winning.
