Whether celebrating a milestone anniversary or escaping on an impromptu weekend jaunt, these romantic destinations offer unforgettable experiences, from intimate beachfront dining to desert stargazing and beyond.
For the ultimate in tropical romance, The Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas offers private dining on the beach, complete with a choice of music. Alternatively, step aboard Lady Lynsey, the resort’s 53-foot luxury catamaran, for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on a sunset sail.
From its mountainside perch, The Ritz-Carlton, Rancho Mirage presents sweeping views of Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley during the day and a dramatic starlit sky come nightfall. Aptly named The Edge, the hotel’s cliff-side restaurant features floor-to-ceiling windows to take it all in over decadent steakhouse cuisine and a bottle of one of California’s renowned wines.
Situated on the banks of Lake Geneva, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel de la Paix, Geneva is the ultimate in European glamour. Enjoy quintessentially Swiss excursions, like a cruise on one of Europe’s largest lakes — paired with a backdrop of snowcapped Mont Blanc — and a cable-car ride up to the top of Mont Saleve, nicknamed the Balcony of Geneva for epic views of the lake and city below.
Kapalua translates to “arms embracing the sea,” and The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua resort embodies the meaning. The 2-mile guided hike through Hawaii’s largest private preserve — exclusive to the resort and not accessible to the general public — takes guests to one of the lushest gardens on earth.
Indulge in an escape to Bali's cultural heart, Ubud, where rolling hills, a gentle river and verdant rice paddies make for a majestic backdrop at Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve. Venture a bit further afield in a vintage VW convertible to experience the island's magic.
Take advantage of a bounty of beachfront activities like tandem kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, or a tennis match on the resort’s oceanfront clay court, and then unwind at the spa. Couples packages are available, with a bubble bath, sugar scrub and full body massage for two.
