To serve as inspiration for your next couples vacation, we’ve compiled a list of high-end properties that appeal to travelers of all stripes. Enjoy a sunny beach vacation or opt for a city break with these 5-star hotels, ready to host your Valentine’s Day getaway, anniversary trip, or honeymoon. And when you choose Planet 9 for private jet charter, your vacation starts the second you step onboard.
This AAA Five-Diamond masterpiece is a natural choice for romantic beach getaways in Los Cabos, the glittering seaside destination sitting at the southernmost tip of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula. There’s so much to love about this place, from dreamy sunsets over the Sea of Cortez to exquisite design that incorporates hand-carved furniture.
Start your mornings with a dip in your own private infinity-edge pool (every villa comes with one!), then have your personal butler arrange a delicious breakfast for you and your partner. Later, soak up the sun and sea breezes with a private yacht charter arranged by the hotel. Once the sun sets, cozy up by candlelight in the 1920s-style speakeasy.

La Mansión Presidential Suite makes the perfect base for a luxury couples retreat in the heart of Buenos Aires. Decorated to bring to mind 18th-century France, this space oozes elegance, with opulent touches around every corner. You and your special someone will have nearly 2,000 square feet of space to yourselves, which includes a well-appointed formal dining room and a full marble bathroom. You’ll be tended to around the clock by your own personalized attendant.
Even airport pick-up is extraordinary—a Mercedes Benz will be waiting at arrivals to whisk you to the hotel. Though there are plenty of reasons to stay sequestered in this luxury suite, the hotel boasts a range of not-to-be-missed experiences, from cooking classes to private tango lessons.

Perched in the Swiss Alps nearly 1,500 meters above sea level, this 5-star hotel is more than ready to host your romantic getaway. Start your couples trip on the right foot by paying a visit to the award-winning spa, whose chic swimming pool is flanked by dramatic glass windows. Sign up for the Chedi Love Bath Ceremony to indulge in a deep soak by candlelight with champagne and canapés.
For dinner, reserve a table at The Japanese Restaurant, offering five- and ten-course Kaiseki menus by executive chef Dietmar Sawyere. By the end of the day, you’ll be ready to retreat to your room to cuddle up next to the fireplace and enjoy sweeping views of the mountain landscape just beyond.

As the quintessential romantic destination, Paris has a wide array of stunning 5-star hotels to choose from. But none of them boasts the charm and whimsy that Hotel Plaza does. Its Haute Couture Eiffel Suite is a mish-mash of classical French design bursting with rosy colors and feminine touches—the room even has a baby grand piano. Get a direct view of the Eiffel Tower through floor-to-ceiling windows, which allow you to soak in the magic of the City of Lights without venturing too far.
Dining here is truly an experience—the hotel’s signature restaurant, Jean Imbert au Plaza Athénée, is helmed by Jean Imbert, voted Chef of the Year 2019 by GQ. In this daring venture, he revives centuries-old French recipes whose interpretations honor the country’s vast culinary traditions.

For romantic beach getaways like something out of a fairytale, head to Spice Island Beach Resort, a AAA Five-Diamond Gem lying along a heavenly stretch of Grand Anse Beach. When you upgrade to the Anthurium Pool Suites, you’ll have 1,200 square feet of living space to relax in with your partner, not to mention personal gardens and private plunge pools for cooling off.
Though this resort is all-inclusive, this is not your typical buffet dining—the resort’s upscale restaurants serve thoughtful cuisine prepared with high-quality, local ingredients. Get a little tipsy with premium label drinks, also included. And don’t check out without carving out some time for a couples massage at Janissa’s Spa, with a cascading water wall and open-air rain showers.
