Over-the-Top for Valentine’s
Florida Travel Guide: Over-the-top Valentine’s Celebrations
If money is no object and Florida’s the destination, then travel to one of the following places to woo your valentine in style and guide an Ooh-la-la moment! If you’re on a budget, see how the ‘other side’ spends Valentine’s!
Luxe at the Top
If the sky is the limit, take your sweetheart to the rooftop in a VIP Penthouse Suite at Hotel Breakwater. From champagne in a jacuzzi on the private rooftop terrace to a rose-petal turndown, you may not even step foot onto South Beach. Dinner for two is included, if you want to leave your suite.
The price tag: $1,700.
Luxe on the Water
Disney knows how to do it in style! Hold your sweetheart’s hand and step aboard the Grand Floridian’s 52-foot yacht. You’ll feel like the “Wishes” fireworks is just for you as you cruise along Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake. And you can add a private butler service, gourmet dinner service, whatever you wish! Call for reservations: 407/824-2682.
The price tag: $520/hour.
Grab an oceanfront residential suite with Club Lounge Access at the Ritz-Carlton in Fort Lauderdale and the Ritz will toss in VIP tickets to Andrea Bocelli’s Valentine’s Day concert. You’ll get other gifts like a limited edition champagne to top off the evening. Tickets are limited, but see if you’ll be lucky with love!
The price tag: $1, 999
Turnberry Isle Miami tops the list with the “Love on the Rocks” package. Your evening starts with a candlelit dinner aboard a 150-foot private yacht. Lookout Disney! But then, you get two Michael “F” Collection eternity diamond rings. When you step back onto land, rose petals are spread throughout your 2,400 square-foot Presidential Suite, candles are flickering and your private butler is awaiting your every whim. And there’s vows exchanged by a century-old banyan tree, a chakra couple’s massage, champagne and strawberries. The Ritz has extended this package to the end of the month (Call 786-279-6521).
The price tag: $143,000
