We believe the best gift you can give your loved one is an incredibly romantic trip. But how to go the extra mile and plan a sweet and romantic vacation for two that will stay with you both (and on your Instagram feed) forever?
Here are some tips and tricks on how to arrange the most amorous vacation of your lives:
Pick the Best Destination
Location, location, location! To make sure you enjoy every moment of your getaway for two, you need to first decide where you’re going. Sweet Inn offers stylish vacation apartments in the most romantic European cities such as Paris, Rome, Lisbon, Barcelona and many more.
Once you decide on your destination, go ahead and plan the rest of your adventure. We recommend a vacation that twines high and low: touring and relaxing, Michelin restaurants and local junk food, museums in the morning and shopping in the afternoon.
Plan for Romance
The first impression is always the most important one. So when you book your vacation apartment or hotel, call in advance and let them know you wish to surprise your significant other. With hotels, you’ll need to tell them exactly what you want, whether it’s a bottle of wine, flowers, a box of chocolates – you’ll need to spell it out.
With us, all you need to say is “I need some romance in my life” and we’ll take it from there. We’ll set up a romantic scene in your apartment, just like in the movies… bubbles – check, red rose petals – check, ca- well, we want to keep it a surprise for you too.
Have Breakfast in Bed
No romantic vacation is complete without breakfast in bed; nothing says more ‘I’m on a romantic vacation’ than stretching your morning with some horizontal eating.
Organizing a breakfast in bed requires diligence. Go shopping for ingredients the night before, or set your phone’s alarm early enough to make it to the store and back and cook, all before your loved one wakes up. If you decide to go for it, do it like a pro: Squeeze the oranges, warm up the rolls, don’t forget the flower and please – don’t overcook the eggs.
If you feel like indulging yourself, and your loved one, just tell us “Breakfast. In bed.” and it will be delivered to your door. All you’ll need to do is carry it to the bedroom.
Go with The Flow
The real secret to a romantic holiday is to plan everything before your departure and then, when you get to your destination, throw the list to the garbage (or just delete it off your phone.)
Let the streets, the people and the wind take you to places you’ve never heard of and didn’t expect to visit; it can be quite romantic to get lost actually. We always say that experiencing a city like a local is the secret sauce for the best vacation; so hold on tight and let your heart follow.
Document and Cherish
There’s an old philosophical saying: “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?”. The philosophers of today would say: “If you had a great time and you didn’t take a selfie, did it really happen?” ?
Even if it feels like a hassle to grab your phone when you are having an incredible time with your loved one, you are most likely to regret it later on when you’ll want to show off how much fun you’ve had.
So, take out your phone, snap a quick photo or video and don’t forget to use the hashtag #SweetInnTravelers for a chance to be featured on our social channels!
