Ski resorts are the perfect romantic retreat. You spend time together, the exercise is exhilarating, and you have the perfect excuse to cuddle up at night. It already has the perfect romantic getaway written all over it – but if you want to truly wow your husband, you’ll have to go the extra mile. It is easy to make your skiing holiday into the perfect romantic holiday. Here are a few suggestions to help you get started on transforming your sporting holiday into a perfect romantic getaway:
- Turn Your Hotel Room into a Wellness Retreat
You don’t need to splurge on massages or go to the spa together. Make it romantic by buying oils and other spa necessities and turn your hotel room into the perfect romantic spa retreat. Your hubby would love to have a massage from you, which would be more intimate and sensual. The closeness and the intimacy can’t be beaten – all you need to do is stop by a local store and pick up some items. You can add candles (or air fresheners if you are not allowed candles), massage oils, and even snacks like chocolate to make your hotel room the perfect romantic den.
- Have Date Nights
Get out of the resort and go out for a date night for the ultimate surprise for your husband. There are ticket sales for local events available. Just search the venues nearby and see what’s on when you are there. Couple the event with a nice dinner and after-event drinks, and you’ll have planned the perfect date night on your already romantic getaway.
- Spend a Day Away
Just because you are on a sporting getaway doesn’t mean that you can’t plan a few days without skiing. Overstay your skiing pass and take that time to explore the nearby area. Travelling is great for couples. It allows them to see and learn new things together, and it transports them into a world of their own.
- Just Relax
Conversely, you don’t need to spend every waking second doing something special. Break up your romantic escapades by simply relaxing in bed and watching the television together. Your getaway will be physically demanding (especially if you two aren’t regular sportspeople) and you’ll need the time to recuperate. Don’t plan too much, or else you run the risk of frustrating your tired partner (and yourself). Make time to relax and heal, and ideally do this while you are snuggled up together in bed.
Sporting retreats are perfect romantic getaways. The exercise increases our moods, skiing itself is fun and thrilling, and the winter season encourages closeness. Make the already great getaway a perfect one by planning activities outside of the resort, but ensure that you both have the energy and will to get out there. Plan a few quality activities for you two to enjoy, and if they require a lot of exercise (like wandering through town), inform your husband beforehand. Keep surprises for the events that you can actually relax during!
