Before the ball drops on New Year's Eve, consider planning your year in travel — whether or not there’s a reason to celebrate. After all, isn't the best reason for a romantic escape not having any reason at all?
Scroll through the slideshow and read on below to see our top picks for the best weekend getaways for couples.
Le Méridien Bora Bora
Built within one of the most beautiful lagoons in the world, Le Méridien Bora Bora is on a six mile-long "motu" islet facing the famous Otemanu Mountain, accessible only by boat. Its "Romantic Mood" offer includes daily breakfast, a candlelight dinner for two on the beach, and late checkout. Couples can spend their getaway in their very own offshore bungalow complete with glass floor to view the exotic sea life. Ladders from the deck make it easy to slip into the lagoon's clear water for a swim followed by a romantic lunch on the beach at Te Ava, the property's beach restaurant. End each day taking in views of Mt. Otemanu at sunset.
Andaz Peninsula Papagayo
Set to open on December 20, the Andaz Peninsula Papagayo is offering the "Summer Love" package, which includes a welcome in-room amenity, dinner for two, special mini bar items, complimentary glass of wine at the Andaz lounge, a couples massage at Onda Spa, and breakfast.
KENNEBUNK BEACH, MAINE
White Barn Inn
White Barn Inn, a Relais & Châteaux property in Kennebunk Beach, Maine, is one of the best weekend getaways for couples in the Northeast. A quick trip from Boston or New York, couples can enjoy award-winning cuisine by Chef Jonathan Cartwright at the property's restaurant or even arrange for a private cooking class.
