In relationships, it’s important to make sure that the flame never goes out. Many dating experts advise couples to continue to connect with their partners with fun activities and romantic gestures. Remembering to celebrate important occasions like anniversaries can help a relationship go a long way. 

To spice things up, couples can tap into their romantic side and plan a nice getaway for two. Romantic getaways are a perfect way to spend some quality time with your special someone without having to worry about the stressors of life. It’s about time to put away the laptop and remember why love is worth stopping time for. 

We’ve done some research and chosen the most romantic resorts where couples can relax and reconnect. Whether it’s for your honeymoon or a quick weekend getaway, taking a trip to a romantic resort is always worthwhile. 

1. The Stanford Inn

On a mission to have guests leave inspired and joyful, The Stanford Inn resort is a romantic getaway located in Mendocino, California. The Stanford Inn is an eco-friendly resort where wellness is at the heart of every guest offering. From the organic products used in its restaurants to the grand wellness center, couples who prioritize living a healthy lifestyle will appreciate visiting. 

“We have a great core staff that is instrumental in helping us set the example of a sustainable way (not green-washing) that is a loving approach to the health of the planet,” said The Stanford Inn’s owner, Jeff Stanford. 

It’s refreshing to be able to reconnect with your lover and appreciate one another. As time passes, couples often fail to make time to talk and discuss their romantic needs and desires. Older couples usually fall into a toxic pattern of sharing conversations about their responsibilities and end up forgetting about their relationship. The Stanford Inn is all about reconnecting and providing spaces for couples to talk things out. 

Jeff told us that the wellness center offers jacuzzis and saunas where couples can relax and have quiet discussions with one another. With work and other life stressors, it’s rare for couples to get such luxury. The Stanford Inn is committed to inspiring and encouraging guests on the importance of practicing wellness. Couples may need this reminder as they go back to their busy lives. 

“Perfect place to get away from the busy bay area and focus on getting some relaxation, enjoy the garden, eat tasty healthy meals, and dedicate time to reconnect with my partner and before our baby arrives,” said Jean, a Stanford Inn guest in a review
