Planning a romantic escapade this Valentine’s Day? Here are 5 incredibly romantic destinations to choose from.

Vinpearl Resort, Phu Quoc, Vietnam

Vietnam is an amazingly romantic destination – if you know where to go. We recommend a 3-night stay at the brand new Vinpearl Resort. This sprawling 750-room resort property on tropical Phu Quoc Island offers you romance in luxury – less than 2 hours on a direct flight from Singapore!

You can enjoy activities parasailing and jet skiing to sailing and kayaking, or pamper yourself at the luxurious Vincharm Spa before a romantic dinner at the resort. This resort is Vietnam’s latest hidden gem to explore – a little exploration adds to the Valentine’s Day romance!


AVANI Sepang Gold Coast, Malaysia

Due to its proximity and size, Malaysia is always a Singaporean’s favourite spot for a quick getaway and holiday. Its culture, food and language are similar to ours, so the barriers to communication are almost non-existent. Couple that with the beautiful landscapes many states have to offer, its mouth-watering delicacies and warm hospitality, Malaysia will always be a choice vacation spot for us.


The AVANI Sepang Goldcoast Resort is a beachfront getaway that has it all. Lazy pool and spa days, beach games and water sports, it has everything you’ll need for a romantic time together.

It’s an amazing 2-night romantic adventure to be in this February. Once you’re there, you’ll never want to leave.

Amanjiwo Luxury Resort, Java, Indonesia

Located in Central Java – the heart of Indonesia’s cultural arts development – is Amanjiwo, a luxurious resort that has the best of both worlds. On one side it is rich in Javanese culture – the whole Javanese experience is a great romance with Javanese cycle tours, horse carts (known as andong) rides, rich fields and incredible Javanese cuisine.


On the other side is Mother Nature’s spectacle with the Menoreh Hills as the natural backdrop and volcanoes on the horizon as the resort overlooks Borobudur, the largest Buddhist sanctuary in the world. Amanjiwo is guaranteed to take your breath away as you spend each of your 3 nights stay amazed and enchanted.

Jumeirah Vittaveli, Maldives

There’s just so much love and romance about the Maldives it’s almost a sin to not list this here. The sparkling blue waters of the Indian Ocean surround the exquisite Jumeirah Vittaveli resort. With exemplary service, luxury facilities such as spas, you’ll only need a cocktail in hand as you enjoy your partner’s company in an incredible holiday getaway like the Maldives.

Your 3-night stay here at the resort will whizz by, capture the beautiful moments whenever you can – a visit to a Maldives is never the same each time you return. If you’d like a longer stay, check out our Lunar New Year packages to the Maldives here.
