20 Romantic Weekend Getaway Ideas (Themed to suit all couples)

Whether it's your wedding anniversary or a long over-due romantic weekend away

When it comes to choosing where to go for your next romantic break or holiday, it’s all too easy to get swept away on a tide of ‘cookie-cutter hearts and flowers’ romantic destinations.

Because whilst famously romantic cities, such as Paris or Venice, are rightly celebrated as world leaders for romance and ever popular choices for a romantic weekend getaway… the one-size-fits-all approach is no good when you want to show someone unique how much you cherish them.

Instead, give the gift of travel and make it personal.

And choose experiences and destinations that correspond to your loved one’s very individual passions and interests.

Need inspiration? Here are a few ideas to help you find your partner’s perfect romantic trip, whoever they may be…  (all of which are roughly no more than a 3 hour flight from the UK - making them an ideal choice for a long weekend getaway).

If your partner is ADVENTUROUS… 

Embrace you partner's adventurous spirit and discover the thrill of a lifetime! The fearless explorer is always seeking the next big adventure and yearning for new horizons. If you want to truly excite and challenge an adventurer, gift them the opportunity to behold incredible destinations and immerse themselves in new cultures from a fresh perspective. Or, ignite their passion for adrenaline with exhilarating sports and adventurous experiences that will leave couples craving more action. Unleash the adventurer within and create memories that will last a lifetime!


  • MARRAKECH - Dive into a thrilling weekend at Es Saadi Resort, where couples can ignite their evenings at the mesmerizing Casino de Marrakech - the first of its kind in Morocco.

If your partner is a TRUE ROMANTIC…  

Unlock the full potential of your partner's romantic personality and shower your loved one with unforgettable treats and surprises. But remember, expectations are high. So don't hold back!
