This is a romantic sunrise like no else. A hike up Mount Batur, an active volcano located in Bali, will leave couples in awe as they take in colorful hues above the clouds. The hike starts early in the morning, but is all worth it to reach the summit for a private breakfast looking down upon the clouds, surrounded by mountain peaks and warm colors.

The trail is an experience in itself. Couples will hike through lush jungle slowly showing more and more panoramic views of the island of Bali, and on a clear day, visitors can see the neighboring islands of Lombok and Java. The trail is well-marked and guided tours are available, so visitors don’t have to worry about getting lost.

Hot air balloon ride in Luang Prabang, Laos:

As the balloon rises, couples will fly across the beautiful city landscape and the Mekong River, crossing over ancient temples, traditional houses, and lush jungles. The experience of floating above the city while taking in the stunning views of the landscape is a truly unforgettable shared experience.

Rides are typically one hour and start early in the morning, to take advantage of the cooler temperature and beautiful sunrise light.

The Royal Thai Couple's Ritual in Thailand:

This luxurious spa treatment is offered by many high-end spas throughout Thailand. The ritual focuses on providing couples with a more intimate and romantic spa experience.

Starting with a Thai massage, a form of massage that combines acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles, and assisted yoga postures. This massage offers couples relaxation, improved circulation, and stress relief.

Following the massage, couples are treated to a milk bath, which is said to nourish and soften the skin. The milk bath is usually scented with essential oils or flowers, making it an aromatic and zen experience.

After the milk bath, couples take a flower petal shower to cleanse and refresh the skin. The shower is also scented with essential oils, and the petals used are typically roses or jasmine, which are said to have a soothing and calming effect on the body and mind.


Private hot-stone bath in Bhutan:

The treatment is usually accompanied by traditional Bhutanese music and scented with essential oils such as juniper, which are said to have a soothing and calming effect on the body and mind.
