Never mind flowers, chocolate, jewelry or all those other tired romance clichés – spice things up this summer and plan a Caribbean escape with the one you love. Here are just a few ways to get the sparks flying at Barceló Aruba, Occidental at Xcaret Destination, Royal Hideaway Playacar and Barceló Bávaro Grand Resort.
Get Treated Like Royalty
Harry and Meghan don’t have to be the only fairy tale romance this summer. The Royal Level at Barceló Aruba hotel is one of the most exclusive experiences available in the area, with an array of luxurious perks. Your spacious Royal Level Master Suite is a love nest like no other, with an outdoor hot tub and a private balcony to enjoy Aruba’s stunning views. There’s plenty to do in the resort and in Aruba – but you may have trouble leaving your suite!
Have A VIP Culinary Experience
Date night – elevated. For an intimate culinary experience while staying at Royal Hideaway Playacar, reserve a table at the Chef’s Table at Las Ventanas. You’ll enjoy a delectable six-to-12 course gourmet tasting menu specially designed and presented by the hotel’s executive chef – but the food is just the beginning. You’ll also have a chance to interact with the chef and his expert kitchen team, getting an insider’s view of the creation of your meal.
See A Show
Move over, Las Vegas. Occidental at Xcaret Destination’s world-class theater hosts thrilling live entertainment on a nightly basis. During your escape, you’ll choose from international dance troupes, authentic live music, interactive magicians and much more. After the show, dance the night away at the Palenque nightclub, with bands, DJs and cocktails. A perfectly romantic evening …
Go On A Tropical Island Adventure
The couple that plays together stays together. There are endless adventure options when you stay at the all-inclusive Barceló Bávaro Beach – Adults Only (part of Barceló Bávaro Grand Resort), located in a privileged spot in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. On a Bavaro Runners tour, you’ll board a classic safari-style jeep for a ride through a breathtaking landscape filled with teeming jungles and amazing wildlife. And the nearby Saona Island is a romantic escape with gorgeous mangroves, crystal clear waters (perfect for snorkeling) and postcard-worthy beaches.
Relax & Indulge Together
Soft candlelight, mellow music, the sweet aroma of incense and essential oils … Pure relaxation is within reach at Barceló Bávaro Grand Resort’s U Spa, where you and your companion will receive a personalized treatment in a sophisticated and serene atmosphere. Perfect for couples – the Romantic Escape package, which takes place in a private suite. Your treatment begins with a foot ritual, followed by 50-minute relaxing massage ending in a private garden area where you can enjoy your choice of drink.
