Italy’s Amalfi Coast has long been a playground for the rich and famous, but it’s also the perfect destination for couples looking to indulge in the finer things, and each other. Breathtaking scenery, picturesque villages, sun filled beaches and fine dining combine to put you in the mood for amor. Visit starting in mid April, and stay at the romantic, cliffside Punta Tragara Hotel in Capri. Stroll the romantic gardens of Villa Rufolo in the town of Ravello, and spend the day island hopping on a yacht, indulging in ancient thermal baths before returning to Capri to enjoy a delicious (and affordable!) dinner with a view at Ristorante Villa Margherita.

Once you get back to the resort, indulge in the stunning views as you get cozy during your couples massage and watch the sunset in each other’s eyes at Sri Panwa’s exclusive rooftop lounge Baba’s Nest.

At Ventana Big Sur Resort the glamping experience comes complete with a premium safari style tent (with daily housekeeping), a basket with a s’mores kit, mugs, tea, cutting board, cheese knife, bottle opener and wine glasses, a private guided hike, access to a sommelier wine and cheese hour, heated blankets and cozy wood burning fire pit so you and bae can snuggle under the stars.
