Create the Perfect Romantic Getaway

25 October 2019

A romantic getaway can be a wonderfully classic way to treat each other and spend real quality time together. However, it's easy to get lost with all the things that a getaway entails and accidentally ruin the magic.

It's very easy to fall into the trap of spending lots of money in order for the holiday to be lavish and romantic. It could even have an adverse effect on your holiday causing unwanted stress and discomfort as you worry about how much you've spent and if it was value for money.

So what’s the solution? Plan a trip that suits you!

Choose Your Destination

The world is full of romantic destinations from Paris to Kyoto but romance has many different guises. Instead of following the crowd and adding a padlock to a bridge that will only be removed a day later, it’s important to pick a destination that really interests you. Go somewhere that inspires or intrigues you.

Cities are great for weekend getaways because there’s a lot to see and do. On the other hand, escaping to the countryside and staying in a lodge by a lake - Forest Rise Chalets & Lodge springs to mind - can be just as diverting. Whatever the destination you choose, make sure it matches your mood and your intentions. If you want to spend a few days lounging around, there’s no point in staying in a city; if you want to run around and be part of a crowd, the country isn’t going to work for you. 

Explore New Things Together

The whole point of a romantic getaway is to spend some quality time together and make memories you can carry forever. Exploring new things together is a lovely way to spend a weekend. This is a chance to experience something new and bond through your shared interests.

Spontaneity is always a good way to explore a new city and this works in the countryside too. Walking together and following your instinct is always the best way to discover hidden gems, whether it’s a route to an exceptional view or a gorgeous little cocktail bar. Allowing a little creativity to enter your weekend will also reduce your stress even further - worrying about being late for your next appointment is a certain romance killer!

Any activity that gets you talking is always a good idea. After all, a romantic getaway is basically a long date. So, trying new foods, wandering around an art gallery or museum, playing a game or a sport together are all fun ways to connect and unwind. In fact, most date ideas translate pretty well to the weekend getaway so all you need to do is work out what you fancy doing with your time. 

Keep it Low Key

There will be times when you want to splash out and treat yourselves to an amazing holiday but the romantic weekend getaway isn’t about that at all. This is simply a way to make an average weekend into an awesome weekend so keeping things lowkey is advisable.

So, if you don’t have a big budget, don’t try to make this weekend into something that costs a fortune, find the fun and the romance in more creative ways. For example, while an expensive meal in a restaurant might be impressive, a homemade picnic is probably half the price for twice the romance. Frugal and flirty. How could you resist?

Similarly, going for a walk is totally free and, as many movies have made clear, probably the most romantic way to hold a conversation. You might not have just met but you can almost guarantee that your deepest conversations will flow naturally when you are outdoors and on top of a mountain or skipping stones across a lake.

The perfect romantic getaway is all about getting away from the humdrum of daily life and taking the opportunity to strengthen your bond. This is about having fun, sharing intimate moments and opening up about what’s going on with you. Just like a date, this is your chance to have those deep conversations about your hopes and dreams as well as your worries and fears. It’s a chance to get away and live a fantasy for a few days.

But here’s the thing - the real trick to perfecting your weekend together. The perfect romantic getaway isn’t really about where you are or what you’re doing; it’s about who you’re with.
