Couples' Holidays

couples holidays

Let’s be honest…we can only take so much of being cooped up at home with the other half. If it’s between that or living our best life on a couples holiday, we know which we’d pick. It’s like next-level date night. With sand. Whether you’re looking for low-cost or luxury, we know that romantic beach breaks are about more than just candlelit dinners and couples massages. It’s all about those little moments in between - shoving each other in the pool, comparing tan lines on the beach, ordering different cocktails so you can swap halfway through. Some things are just so much better on holiday - even bickering over where to eat. Newsflash: romance isn’t dead, it’s just taking a sunbathe.

If you're a couple who likes a bit of a party, Ibiza is for you. Want a nice, cheap break to get some sun and have some fun? The Balearic Islands are an ideal destination. In our eyes, there’s nothing more romantic than spending some good quality time with your significant other away from the grey and dreary weather at home, so we’ve gathered some of our favourite hotels for that perfect couples escape. Dip your toes in the gold(en) sands of Dubai or find an All Inclusive steal – your romantic beach holiday awaits.
