Proud sponsors of First Dates on Channel 4, our Sensimar hotels are perfect for a romantic retreat. But aside from, ahem, the obvious, what can you do to rekindle the flames while you’re away? Check out these 5 adventures for some relation-inspiration.
A snorkelling or diving trip is a great way to relax with your other half, and you can take some cute underwater selfies while you’re at it. Escape the hustle and bustle of dry land as you plunge into quiet waters filled with tropical fish, coral reefs and shipwrecks. For first-class diving territory, we’d recommend Mexico’s Caribbean Coast – the Mesoamerican Reef is the world’s second-biggest barrier reef. Plus, you can unwind at Sensimar Seaside Suites & Spa, where gourmet dining and junior suites come as standard. Someone pass the Champagne.
If you see yourselves as the modern day Tarzan and Jane, go wild with a jungle adventure in the Dominican Republic. Besides the beautiful animals and OMG scenery, the best thing about the forest is the au naturel experience. Head for a beauty spot like Salto del Limon in Samana, for example, and you can take a shower together beneath a huge waterfall. Or saddle up and make your way to the Maimon River on horseback, then freshen up afterwards at Sensimar Bavaro.
We all love a sunset – it’s the perfect opportunity to snuggle up. But if you like your romance served with a twist, Sensimar Arona Gran in Tenerife is the place to go. While you’re staying on the island, you can watch the sun melt into the horizon from 7,000 feet up, on the slopes of Mount Teide. Tuck in to a freshly-prepared dinner, clink glasses, and wait for the stars to come out – your local guide will be able to point out all the twinkling constellations. Take a look at our Teide By Night trip for all the details.
Romance doesn’t have to be all flowers and hearts. Spending the day at a waterpark is a great holiday date, because you can let your hair down and have a laugh. Race each other down multi-lane slides, throw yourselves into the rapids, and float along a lazy river in a double rubber ring. The Greek islands are particularly packed with waterparks, and there are 10 gorgeous Sensimar hotels to choose from in this part of the world. With private pools, pillow menus and a cliff-top setting, Sensimar Elounda Village is our pick of the bunch.
If you both need some R&R, there’s nothing better than sitting in one of Mother Nature’s hot tubs. Thermal water helps relax your muscles and, rumour has it, has magical healing properties. Our favourite spot for a soak is Pamukkale in Turkey. These surreal springs look like they’ve been CGI-ed onto the mountain – they sit on top of each other, like layers and layers of white icing. Cosy up in a warm pool before heading back to the Sensimar Marmaris Imperial for a delicious sea-view dinner.
