Trending Couples Vacation Spots 2021
After a taxing year like 2021, some time away as a couple will do you a world of good. Far from the craziness of the “new normal”, the uncertainty of work life, business, well, everything really. If you are well travelled we know you are looking for something fresh, and if you are just starting out we have some great recommendations for you too. It's pleasing to note that in the past few months of subdued business, some hoteliers and hospitality operators have been busy ensuring their facilities are in tip-top shape. A good number took some time for renovations and necessary touch-ups. Some great new offerings have also been released and so we have a great selection of retreats that are excellent for couples.
