Congratulations on spending years of passion and love! This occasion deserves a celebration like no other.
When planning the best romantic getaway for your significant other, you’ll have to think ahead. With so many choices out there, it can be challenging to pick the best ones that will make your spouse’s heart melt.
Classic Dinner Date: Steak, Wine and Each Other
Think going on a dinner date is no longer romantic? Think again.
These classic dates always have a romantic impression, especially when done on rare occasions. If you haven’t been doing it for quite a while since your wedding day, consider bringing your wife on a classic dinner date complete with steak and wine, which is definitely a good way to start your anniversary celebratory trip.
Be sure to pick out the best restaurant in town and enjoy mouthwatering steaks and the luxurious fine dining ambiance. Book a table for two, wear your best dinner outfit, and give your beloved a night full of love and romance that she’ll never forget.
Make Childhood Dreams Come True: Play in a Treehouse
If you’re like many people, you’ve probably dreamed of having your very own treehouse. If you believe that this is something your spouse has pondered upon during your time together, then a treehouse date is perfect for you.
Get romantic and wild in the wilderness of South Africa while enjoying a bird’s eye view of nature’s wonders at the Lion Sands Game Reserve. The remote location will make your anniversary vacation feel a bit more intimate.
With bush bedrooms built on elevated platforms, you will have the once-in-a-lifetime experience of sleeping under the stars without compromising comfort and luxury.
Ultimately, you and your wife will surely make a memory that’ll last a lifetime.
Take Your Love to New Heights: Private Seaplane Tour
Love is in the air! So, what could be more romantic than actually bringing your loved one high up that she could watch the sea, the sky, and the clouds with you?
Go on a private Dubai City tour with your spouse and relish the beauty of the glittering skyline of one of the best cities in the world. Depending on the charter you take, you will surely have a blast watching the UAE’s most popular tourist destinations on high.
The best part is that these luxury private tours fly on high-end, modern Cessna seaplanes and take off from the water, ensuring a unique and memorable experience for your wife. If she’s an adventurous one, then you’ll be able to help her tick that off of her bucket list.
Bring Adventure and Luxury Together: Glamping
Glamping – a term coined from the words “glam” and “camping” – is another way of bringing luxury and adventure together. Nowadays, romance isn’t all about having everything ironed out – it’s all about making precious memories without facing too much inconvenience along the way.
Many locations now offer glamping services these days. Baguio City, the Philippine Summer Capital, has glamping sites tucked away in the mountains overlooking lush, green forest. The cold climate offers an opportunity to snuggle up with your significant other and makes the experience much more relaxing.
If you’re not into being in the cold, you can also try glamping in Australia – at Cape Range National Park, to be more specific. Located near the Ningaloo Reef, the Sal Salis Safari Camp offers an all-in-one romantic package complete with yummy food, exciting snorkeling adventures, and rare wildlife encounters.
Swim in the Sea of Love: Beach Vacation
The beach – the sun, the sea, and wonderful experiences – makes another excellent option for your anniversary getaway.
There are so many beaches worldwide, but only a few can offer the same level of luxury and romance you can get from the British Virgin Islands.
Whether you decide to swim or just float in the sea, the crystal blue waters of Cane Garden Bay Beach and Smuggler’s Cove Beach make the experience quite memorable. The best part is, these beaches see fewer crowds, which means you’ll get to enjoy more privacy and quiet alone-time with your wife on your anniversary.
If you’re into a more adventurous trip to the beach, the British Virgin Islands also has something for you. Spring Bay has excellent sites for snorkeling and swimming, while Anegada Island is perfect for sailing. If you’re into hiking after a swim, head to the Gorda Peak National Park.
You can even pamper your wife with a relaxing day at the spa in Scrub Island Resort, which has its very own 230-acre private island located along the eastern part of Tortola. This vast land area also houses 52 guestrooms and several villas, two private beaches, restaurants, and a 55-slip marina.
More Ideas to Make the Trip More Romantic
Besides choosing the best locations and activities, your anniversary trip can become even more romantic with the following smart ideas:
Invite her with a handwritten love letter
Effort makes something much more valuable. For someone who gets to spend the rest of her life with you, your wife would appreciate the amount of work you put into your anniversary celebration.
Don’t skimp on this from the very beginning and add a personal touch when inviting your wife to an anniversary getaway.
One excellent idea is to let her know about the trip through a handwritten love letter. If you’ve already planned the itinerary ahead, you can give her clues about what she can expect during the trip without giving away too much information to keep it a surprise.
Do the legwork
Another way to show you care through effort is by doing all the legwork and preparations for the getaway yourself. You can’t introduce the idea of enjoying quality relaxation time together if she’ll end up planning the whole thing.
Remember that the journey is as important as your destination, so you’ll have to make every step count.
On your trip, you must also ensure that you won’t be interrupted. Whether it’s work, friends, or even your children, make arrangements for your obligations for other people beforehand. This will help you focus on spending quality time with your spouse.
Give advance notice to friends and co-workers that you won’t be available to take messages, whether by phone or email. Have a relative babysit your children while you go on your trip. This way, you and your wife will get to enjoy your holiday without any worries.
