Hotels.com has also selected its top picks for a romantic getaway that is sure to rekindle, reinvigorate and revitalize old and new flames alike.
While Hungary may be known for goulash and one of the highest Nobel prize laureates counts per capita, its capital city, Budapest, is fast becoming a romantic-getaway favorite. Although it’s easy to fall in love with the city’s historical charm, many would agree that a trip to the Castle district is a must for any visit to Budapest. Take a cable car up Castle Hill and explore the grounds of the Royal Palace. With its winding streets and picturesque houses, the surrounding medieval town is perfect for long afternoon strolls with your loved one. When night falls, we highly recommend taking a walk along the Danube embankment which stretches between two iconic bridges of Budapest, the historical Chain Bridge and the more contemporary Elisabeth Bridge. With dancing lights reflected in the river and the silhouette of the Royal Palace and the Hungarian Parliament in the distance, you will get swept up in the romance of it all. For places to stay, experience the Central Passage Apartments as it’s right in the heart of the city center.
When it comes to romancing your significant other, you really can’t go wrong with a tranquil beach holiday. The seaside town of Broome in Western Australia is truly a lover’s paradise. Broome’s Cable Beach, with its 22 kilometer stretch of pure white sands set against the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, is guaranteed to take your breath away. Its long, flat shores and gentle rolling waves makes it the perfect spot for swimming and sunbathing. If you’re feeling adventurous, you and your loved one could explore Gantheaume Point at the southern end of Cable Beach. During low-tide, a little surprise unveils itself in the form of a 130-million-year-old dinosaur footprint. Sunset is when Cable Beach truly comes to life as it’s simply spectacular. You could opt to take your loved one for a romantic beachside picnic and simply take in the dusk scenery. But if you really want to impress, a sunset camel ride along the beach will earn you some serious brownie points. The Kimberly Sands Resort & Spa Cable Beach gets our pick for hotel of choice as it’s not only close to the city center but also to other attractions including the Courthouse Markets and Pearl Luggers Museum.
Our final pick may come as a surprise to some but to locals, Yogyakarta is indubitably one of the most romantic destinations in Indonesia. Thought by many to be the epicenter of Javanese arts and culture, your trip could begin by exploring the ancient temples of Borobudur. Sitting atop a hill and overlooking lush green fields, it’s hard not to marvel at the temple’s sheer majesty. Climbing Borobudur is an experience in itself as its meant to symbolize the spiritual journey of the walker from this world to the next. Upon reaching the top, take in the stunning views of the surrounding natural landscape. Photo-taking is highly encouraged as we’re sure you’d definitely want to capture and savor the moment. Next, you could stop by and explore the Kraton Royal Palace. This royal residence is also a great place to visit if you’re keen to learn more about Javanese culture. After a long day of exploring, you could unwind and relax at the many cafes and restaurants in the Prawirotaman area. As for where to stay, we recommend the Sakanti Malioboro Hotel as its right at the heart of the city center and close to many attractions.
