Live like James Bond in Monaco

Is there anything sexier than pretending to be secret spies? Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo doesn’t think so, which is why they created the extravagant Golden Eye Experience. Reserved exclusively for guests staying in the hotel’s Suite Carré d’Or penthouse, lovebirds will get a private tour of the famed Monte-Carlo Casino, picked up in an Aston Martin (with Bond music playing) for a helicopter ride, and return to the hotel for an intimate lunch. And that’s just the daytime adventure. In the evening, you will depart again for a romantic driving tour of the French Riviera, followed by an in-room duo massage, vodka martini aperitif at the lobby bar, and an exclusive dinner on the outdoor terrace of your suite.
Participate in an ancient Peruvian ceremony
For those couples looking to connect on a deeper level, there’s no better place than the Sacred Valley in Peru. There you’ll find the Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba, a contemporary hotel with colonial inspiration, situated on 100 acres. Couples can take part in romantic activities like private dining and cooking classes, but also authentic Andean experiences, such as a Payment to the Earth ceremony. You will participate in an ancient ritual for giving thanks to the Andean gods, performed by a local shaman followed by a special Pachamanca dining experience, where this traditional Peruvian dish is cooked underneath the ground.
