South Florida Hotels Offering a Valentine’s Day Luxury Experience
Nothing says “I love you” like a luxurious weekend getaway. Here are seven South Florida hotels that have crafted packages with love for this Valentine’s Day.
My Love Language Is…The Gabriel South Beach
The Gabriel South Beach, located on Ocean Drive in South Beach, has created a Valentine’s Day package to satisfy all five love languages. When couples check-in for their romantic retreat steps from the beach, they will find welcome gifts on the bed as timeless and elegant as the “Blue Jewel'' itself – a Tiffany and Co. piece such as a Diamond Heart Pendant. Couples can find words of affirmation sticky notes from the hotel on their bathroom mirror along with the The Adventure Challenge book and camera to encourage growth through surprise experiences that can be shared on their trip. The hotel’s acts of service will include a private dinner and dance for the couple at its rooftop pool area with ocean view, as well as Black Car Service to a destination of their choice in Downtown Miami or Miami Beach. To close out the day, additional quality time and physical touch is encouraged with a romantic night-in kit that includes lingerie, candles and essential oils for a massage as well as a bottle of Dom Perignon and movies to enjoy privately. Available upon request, based on availability.
“Marry Me” - The Balfour Hotel
The Balfour Hotel, complementing this year’s Valentine’s Day rom-com “Marry Me,” has launched its very own over-the-top romantic getaway package inspired by the film, which features Latin artists Maluma and Jennifer Lopez. JLo plays the part of a superstar who was going to get married to her fiancé (played by Maluma) in front of an audience but married a stranger on a whim when she finds out he cheated on her. To celebrate the “wedding on a whim,” The Balfour Hotel will have an officiant and celebration for couples who decide to elope at its tropical courtyard escape. JLO BEAUTY skincare products will be included in-room, and couples can put their dance skills to the test with a private salsa and bachata class. Couples who book this package will have a private rooftop dining experience with Latin American cuisine crafted by executive chef Steven Acosta. Their private dinner will be accompanied by a Brazilian guitarist to set the tone for a magical evening under the stars. Available upon request, based on availability.
A Magic City Love Affair - The Gabriel Miami
The Gabriel Miami provides the best city escape for two, tapping into the rom-com hit, “Emily in Paris.” Upon arrival, couples will find rose petals across the bed and a fresh bouquet sourced from European-inspired florist, Zoom Bloomz. For a romantic day-in, couples will be provided Etam Paris lingerie and silk red pajamas. An ode to Emily and Gabriel’s secret bubbling romance, couples can play Love Lingual to see how much they really know each other. A city romance would not be complete without a chocolate fountain and strawberries, a Date Night candle, and a privately catered French menu from Constellation Culinary Group – inspired by chef Gabriel from the Netflix hit show. For a steamy end to the evening, couples will be given a massage kit with bath salts and massage tools as well as floral bath soap shaped as rose petals to relax. Available upon request, based on availability.
