For those shot by cupid’s bow and arrow, love is in the air this time of year and plans are in the making. If sweeping a sweetheart off their feet with a romantic getaway is in the cards, travelers can count Scottsdale as a sure thing. From romantic resorts and luxurious spas, to outdoor adventures and culinary delights, this desert destination checks all the boxes this Valentine’s Day.
- The Royal Romance package and Via Cappello dining experience at the Royal Palms Resort and Spa are perfectly paired for treating that special someone like a king or queen. Guests enjoy a welcome amenity, breakfast for two, a dining credit to T. Cook’s restaurant, late checkout and a rose petal turndown, topped off with a customized dinner in a cozy corner just for two. That’s amore!
- Celebrating a significant other is easy at Hotel Valley Ho, with a special three-course Valentine’s Day menu, live performances on Friday and Saturday, and bubbly specials at VH Spa. Plus, the hotel’s prime location in the heart of downtown puts lovebirds in walking distance of Scottsdale’s premier shopping, dining, art, and entertainment.
- As if mountain views, stylish serenity and a private casita aren’t enough to sweep a sweetie off their feet, Andaz Scottsdale Resort & Bungalows sweetens the deal with a four-course culinary experience. This special dinner is meant to be shared with a loved one, with live music, first-class seats for watching the sunset and a Mediterranean menu prepared with ingredients grown on the resort’s 23 acres.
- Valentines can also get away, together, at Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa and celebrate the holiday with luxe accommodations and relaxation at Spa Avania, complete with wining and dining at Alto ristorante e bar. The specially curated three-course menu is complemented by the sounds of live music at the neighboring Center Stage Bar. Night cap, anyone?
