If you've been dreaming of moonlit walks on the beach with your Valentine, we can help make that dream come true. In the spirit of the upcoming holiday we've rounded up our Top 10 Romantic Beach Resorts. Here they are in no particular order:
Turtle Bay Resort: Located on Oahu's famed North Shore, the Turtle Bay Resort is the only resort around for miles. The entire resort just completed a major renovation and their guestrooms are even fresher and more relaxing than before. All guestrooms feature stunning ocean views. On-site amenities include two golf courses, a full-service spa with outdoor treatment options, seven dining options and so much more. You'll never need to leave the hotel, but you'll want to. The nearby beaches, hikes and sleepy towns are perfect for a relaxing romantic escape.
Grand Wailea - A Waldorf Astoria Resort: Year after year, the Grand Wailea is named one of the most romantic resorts. It is located on one of Maui's best beaches and has a wedding chapel on-site, which is hugely popular for both weddings and vow renewals. They also have a relaxing adults only pool area. As a fun tidbit, if you want to see more of the resort, it was the setting for "Just Go With It" with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston.
Sandals Whitehouse: Out of all of the Sandals Resorts in Jamaica, this is my favorite. It is tucked away on a 500-acre nature preserve, miles away from any hustle and bustle. The sprawling resort features four swimming pools - two with swim-up bars, seven restaurants, a full-service spa and even suites with butler service.
Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa: Located in the heart of Orange County on eight miles of sandy beach, the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach is an ultimate romantic getaway. It is the only hotel in Huntington Beach with a pedestrian walkway to the beach and it features a full-service spa. All of their gorgeous guestrooms have a patio or balcony and I love their pools, hot tubs, fire pits and fountains throughout the property.
Grand Pacific Palisades Resort & Hotel: Set perched above the ocean and overlooking Carlsbad's famous flower fields (seasonally), the Grand Pacific Palisades is an ideal romantic vacation destination. Their adults only Olympic sized swimming pool area has three hydro-spas and plenty of space to spread out and lounge. Their rooms are comfortable and have a microwave and fridge for added convenience.
Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa: Another Carlsbad favorite, the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort is home to stunning views, a world-class spa, a 24-hour heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi, and so much more. It is within walking distance to the Crossings at Carlsbad Golf Course and LEGOLAND, but you'd never know it from the peaceful surroundings.
Pacific Terrace Hotel: Set on San Diego's Pacific Beach, the Pacific Terrace Hotel is California beachfront at its best. It is luxurious, yet quaint. With only 73 guest rooms, you get personalized service. Their oceanfront pool and whirlpool offer a perfect way to unwind at the end of a fun-filled day exploring San Diego.
Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Spa and Marina: You know you're someplace special at the Hyatt Regency Mission Bay. Set on eight acres of marina-front property, the Hyatt offers plush guest rooms with balconies, three free-style swimming pools, four delicious restaurants and an amazing spa. Also, their concierge staff is top notch and can help arrange something extra special for you and your sweetheart.
Sandals Halcyon Beach Resort and Spa: The beauty of the Sandals Halcyon Beach Resort is that it is stunning, yet intimate. It is also part of St. Lucia's Stay at 1, Play at 3 exchange program, which allows you to take advantage of the amenities and restaurants at the larger Sandals Grande St. Lucian and Sandals Regency La Toc, but come back to the relaxed environment of your resort.
Sandals Grande Antigua: We're not the only ones who think this resort is romantic, it is continuously voted "World's Most Romantic Resort." It is located on the best beach in Antigua and has 11all-inclusive restaurants on-property. There are six swimming pools and even more if you count the private pools that are part of the beachfront villa and randoval suites.
