Start Planning Your Romantic Getaway to Barbados for Valentine’s Day 2021
Remember Valentine’s Day 2020? It feels like a lifetime ago as the new year begins to emerge in full view on the horizon. We’ve seen normal life turned on its head in the months following, but that’s all the more reason to make Valentine’s Day 2021 one you really won’t forget.
After the hectic festive period, we can often be left feeling a bit flat, as the reality of the short, cold days continues without the excitement of the Christmas build-up. But with Valentine’s Day quickly creeping up at the start of 2021, it provides the perfect opportunity to celebrate the most romantic of days with some long-awaited sun, sea and quality couple time. You’ll find all of this – and much, much more – on the idyllic island of Barbados.
Candlelit dinners and moonlight dips in the ocean are always on the menu on the island, with a plethora of beachside restaurants and bars to enjoy, but there’s also ample opportunity to take it to another level for your Valentine’s getaway. For a truly once in a lifetime experience, why not book a luxury catamaran tour? Silver Moon offer private, customisable cruises tailored to meet your own personal desires. Perhaps the only thing more idyllic than a romantic dinner overlooking the crystal Caribbean sea is a romantic dinner on the Caribbean sea.
For a more traditional, but no less luxurious foray into romantic relaxation, The Singita Wellness Spa – located at Mullins Beach, and specifically designed for Royal Westmoreland, its residents and guests – offers a range of tranquil treatments for weary travellers. The owner, Michelle Jamieson has over 30 years in the health and wellness industry and had the vision to create a personalized, boutique wellness community in such a serene and beautiful setting.
