The Most Romantic Hotels for an Unforgettable Couples Getaway

16 Intimate Vacation Stays That Promise Love and Passion for You & Your Partner

A change of scenery is all you might need to reignite that spark in your relationship.

A 2012 survey found that couples who travel together are more likely to be satisfied in their relationships, communicate well with their partners, enjoy more romance, have a better sex life, spend quality time together, and share common goals and desires. A whopping 79% of couples believe traveling together positively impacted their bond, and 67% claim at least one important aspect of their relationship improved after taking a trip together.

And wouldn’t you say this makes sense? Taking a break from the day-to-day, getting away from life stressors and responsibilities, and sharing new experiences as a couple can help to remind you exactly what you love about each other. And this applies whether you’ve been dating for a year or married for ten.
