5 Romantic Hotels for Valentine’s Day

Whether you want to stroll along a beach or cuddle beside a fire, these getaways prove that romantic accommodations come in many forms, including a new luxury resort in Mexico, an estate in the English countryside, just-opened cabins for stargazing in the Catskills, a farmhouse in California wine country, and hotels with February discounts on the coast of Maine. No matter where you go, you’ll find Valentine’s Day dinner menus and activities for two, like couples’ massages and private yoga sessions — though many rooms at these properties are so plush, you just might decide to ditch your plans and stay in.

This month, you and your partner can escape to the Catskills and hole up in one of 11 new private cabins called the Rounds.

Prices from $450 a night.

Set amid a 620-acre nature reserve, the property’s tropical plants and birds, mangroves and two miles of beachfront make for a romantic backdrop within a luxury resort community called Kanai. (Kanai is also home to the St. Regis Kanai Resort, Riviera Maya, which opened last year, and both hotels are part of Marriott International.)

You can hit the beach or unwind at the spa, which has indoor-outdoor treatment rooms (including a couples’ suite), hydrotherapy pools, an outdoor pool and a…
