A Romantic Getaway is one where you are alone together without distractions to spend quality time to focus on each other. An ideal location would be somewhere secluded, away from noises and distractions that would lead your mind to wander. Having a getaway with no cell phone coverage is ideal as you are not tempted to look at your Facebook page every hour for updates.
For us, a Romantic Getaway is a place to go to where seclusion is key and the only interruptions are those from the wildlife. We love having access to water (spa pool, hot tub, outdoor wood fired bath) especially ones where we can both relax in at the same time. Which is why 98% of the getaways we represent on our website have either a spa pool, hot tub or outdoor/wood fired bath.
A Romantic Getaway is not about cost, it is about creating cherished moments together. Which is why if cost is an issue for you there are plenty of hotels/motels that are available instead. We like to think of a Romantic Getaway as a place of peace, serenity and calm with stunning views. A place to go, removed from anything you are used to and one that you would have trouble leaving when there.
All of our Romantic Getaway bookings receive a Romantic Delights Gift Box which contain 5 New Zealand made items that have been personally selected by us. The contents change from year to year to make sure that repeat bookings do not receive the same items. The contents of our current boxes include a bottle of Summer Love, a tin of edible cacao vanilla skin butter which is perfect for massaging each other with, a box of handmade Belgium chocolate truffles which melt in your mouth, heart shaped rose petals and the art of conversation cards – Couples edition.
We have had an overwhelming response about the gift boxes which has seen almost all couples use the contents while on their getaway to enhance their relationships. The cards have come in handy on many occasions and are suitable for all couples regardless of how long they have been together. The boxes are available to purchase on their own so you can create your own Romantic Getaway at home.
If you have met us in person we may have asked you the following question, “When was the last time you went on a Romantic Getaway?” And for most, when asked this question, they pause as they begin to think about the answer. If you need time to think about when the last one was then perhaps it is time to plan the next one?
We encourage couples to take at least 3-4 Romantic Getaways each year. This time is important to spend on their relationships without distractions and to connect with each other on a deeper level which is very rarely possible with all the usual responsibilities they are surrounded with.
Spend a moment thinking about the last time you went away together on your own. Where did you go and what did you do once there? How did your relationship benefit from the time away together and can you remember how you felt whilst driving home again?
Did you feel even more in love than you did when you arrived? Did you have a new understanding and admiration for each other than you did before you got there? Did you do anything different that encouraged you to push past your comfort zone and step outside the box?
A Romantic Getaway is designed to give you opportunities to do things together that you would not normally be able to do at home. When was the last time you sat on the couch in each others arms talking about anything other than bills due, schedules, work commitments, family needs and more? When was the last time you slept in, ate what you liked and went for a walk together without having to answer to anyone else?
Being on a Romantic Getaway gives you the opportunity to do things at your own pace unless you have booked in to do some of the many exciting activities in the area where you are staying. Where possible we have access to a range of massage therapists and activity providers to bring you opportunities to do things together whatever the level of your sense of adventure.
Whether you are looking for a relaxing getaway to do nothing at all or a getaway that offers adventure and excitement, we have options for everyone.
With a little careful planning taking a Romantic Getaway is achievable for everyone especially now that we have a Laybuy payment plan available for all bookings made more than 6 weeks from arrival. For more info on these payment plans please email us.
