3 inspirations for a romantic getaway before the holidays
By Aimee Heckel
You have a week before the holiday landslide hits.
This weekend, set aside a date night — or even a full weekend — to relax and connect with your significant other, before the holidays steal all of your energy, time and money.
Here are some ways to plan a last-minute romantic getaway with your partner before the holidays.
1. Instead of going out for dinner (it’s just so predictable!), sign up for a cooking class together, or make a challenging dinner together at home. Working together to create something can be rewarding and a fun way to bond in a non-stressful environment. Search your city for “couples cooking classes.” For example, in Denver you can find a variety of date night cooking classes. Cook Street’s cooking class includes two glasses of wine and a romantic meal for $89 per person. The Kitchen Table Cooking School organizes Romantic Couples Classes, where you can learn to make sushi or Tuscan delights. Or learn about aphrodisiacs or wine at the Stir Cooking School.
2. Get a couple’s massage. There’s something utterly romantic about relaxing next to your loved one; not to mention, it relieves the guilt of enjoying yourself while your partner is watching the kids or working. Go straight for the best couple’s massage possible at the spa in the Ritz-Carlton. Here, you will indulge in aromatherapy and electronic, comfy beds. Finish up the treatment with a dip in the sauna or steam room.
Denver’s Ritz-Carlton spa will transport you to another galaxy of relaxation.
3. Stay a night in luxury. While you’re at the Ritz-Carlton, you may as well stay the night, right? You’re not going to want to drive after that massage anyway. Order a bottle of wine and room service to your room and curl up in an exquisite Ritz suite. Don’t miss the Ritz’s special overnight spa packages.
