Countdown to Valentine’s: the Most Romantic Spa Getaway


Alright everyone, pay attention! You only have three weeks left to plan the perfect Valentine’s Day surprise for your sweetie. Don’t worry, Haute Hotel is here to help. Last week, we kicked things off with our first Valentine’s special, and this week we’ve got another proposition for you.

Today we’re visiting Acqualina Resort & Spa on Miami Beach – basically a bastion of romance all year round, so undoubtedly one of the best places to celebrate Valentine’s Day. We’ve done a dry-run to outline the perfect trip for you:

So here’s the plan. Check in at one of this five-diamond hotel’s oceanfront rooms, where a bottle of champagne will greet you upon arrival. Start the day off with the Romantic Escape, a treatment at the hotel’s famed Acqualina Spa By ESPA. The two-hour treatment for two will wash away thoughts of work, the city, and just about everything else. Afterwards, guests are brought lunch with a bottle of Perrier-Jouët champagne and chocolate

Then, each  person can become their partner’s own masseur, learning an easy routine for the back, neck and  shoulder at the Couples’ Private Lesson. Guests will learn to use aromatic oils and learn some of the secrets that make ESPA such a holistic, meditative, and restorative place.

When the sun sets, head down to the beach to enjoy an intimate oceanside dinner for two at the hotel’s Costa Grill (with dishes like beef carpaccio, seared branzino and filet mignon, topped off with chocolate raspberry cake. Toast another year ahead with Kir Royal while pianist Ciara Rae serenades you before heading back to your suite, where rose petals at turndown will greet you.

Voilà! Romance!
