It can be challenging to put together the perfect plan for this season of love, but there are various things you can surprise your beloved with. Read on for some ideas, both typical and atypical, to plan a Valentine’s Day surprise for your significant other that you will both remember.
Take a day or two off your hectic schedule and spend some quality time with your partner at one of the many hotels in Singapore. If you’re looking for a hotel for your romantic staycation, consider Shangri-La Singapore. This property sits in the midst of lush greenery, so take time to explore their landscaped tropical gardens, admire the plants and flowers that you’ll find all around the hotel, and be one with nature.
Maybe you and your other half are craving for a spa retreat for hours of zen and peace. Or maybe you’re reminiscing those pre-pandemic days spent exploring Japan. Whichever it is, make a trip to Ikeda Spa, and you’ll feel as if you’ve been transported to an authentic Japanese hot spring resort.
Besides enjoying a relaxing massage, spend some time in their Japanese zen garden where you’ll partake in a simple Japanese tea ceremony, experience therapeutic hot rock bathing on their Ganbanyoku stone beds, and luxuriate in their Rotenburo outdoor onsen baths that have been handcrafted with Japanese cypress wood. It’s the ultimate holistic healing experience for you and your partner.
If you and your other half are foodies, then ignore all the pressure to “be more creative” and stick to celebrating this day with a fancy meal at a restaurant. A great restaurant to try is Beurre, which serves up an array of fusion dishes that blend both European and Asian flavours, and offers a great selection of fine wines for this occasion. If you’re unsure what to have, the top picks here include the Pan Seared Scallops and Smoked Striploin.
Perhaps you’re all about living a life full of new experiences but are unsure what to try this Valentine’s weekend. Spend some time browsing through the listings on Pelago, a travel experiences platform by Singapore Airlines, which offers close to 300 options – there’ll surely be one that’ll pique your interest. For the ultimate adventure, book a cruise to the Southern Islands – which includes a sunset voyage. Your captain will drop anchor at St. John’s Island and Lazarus Island, where you can swim, cycle, picnic, and play in the sand to your heart’s content – it’ll definitely be a day of fun in the sun, and you’ll head home with memories of a lifetime.
