6, “Package 14” at Duane Street Hotel, New York City


This Tribeca retreat is offering a package that’s both naughty and nice. For $1,400 a night, guests can experience a romantic 14-course tasting dinner on the hotel’s rooftop overlooking Manhattan followed by 14 in-room “aphrodisiac amenities,” including champagne, role-playing dice, edible panties and more. Luxurious accommodations in a corner-view room with floor-to-ceiling windows seal the romantic deal. Photo courtesy of Duane Street Hotel.

7, “Out of Africa Romance” at Sanctuary Baines’ Camp, Botswana, Africa


At Sanctuary Baines’ Camp, a five-suite retreat located on a private concession bordering the Moremi Game Reserve, for $710 per person/per night, lovebirds can enjoy a sexy “star bath” (a free-standing bathtub on the candlelit suite deck with views of the shimmering Boro River), alfresco bathrooms and a four-poster “sky bed” that can be rolled onto the deck for a night under the stars overlooking a lagoon where hippos are often spotted.

8, Boyz II Men “Love Cruise” on the Carnival Imagination


What could be more romantic than sharing a luxurious cruise with the swoon-worthy singers from Boyz II Men? February 11 through 14, Carnival Cruise Lines is teaming up with the R&B threesome for a concert cruise from Miami to the Bahamas. With cruise prices ranging from $639 to $2,199 per person, guests can enjoy a cocktail party with the band, a full-fledged concert, a special vow-renewal ceremony, a poker tournament and more—plus use of all regular ship facilities, including pools, salons and shopping malls.

9, “Pillow Talk” at Milliken Creek Inn & Spa, Napa Valley, California


This resort in the heart of wine country offers three reasonably priced romance-filled packages during the month of February. Gourmet breakfast, turndown service and massages are the status quo, and couples can opt for romantic add-ons like message-in-a-bottle delivery, a pair of white doves or a dozen butterflies (released in honor of the couple) and a private hot air balloon ride for two.

10, “The Roman Tower” at Pocono Palace, East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania


At this couples-only resort in the Poconos, guests can relax in champagne glass–shaped hot tubs and heart-shaped pools. During February’s “Month of Love,” all-inclusive visits are ramped up with romantic perks, including an “Aphrodisiac Dinner,” an hour-long Chocolate Bliss Massage, vow-renewal ceremonies and more.
