You have been dreaming of your next getaway while reminiscing about the last one you went on? You remember how much it helped your relationship, as well as how much fun you both had. But, you always have difficulty when it comes to planning these getaways. You feel overwhelmed and you worry that you might make the wrong decision. Of course, you want the getaway to be both relaxing and fun for your significant other. This guide will help you with planning the perfect romantic getaway for you and your loved one.
What Activities Do They Enjoy?
Answering this question and questions like it should be on the top of your to-do list before you even think about the planning phase. This is because knowing what each of you enjoy will help you determine what time of getaway you will prefer, as well as what activities you will want to be available to you.
For instance, you may both enjoy drinking wine. This means the two of you may really enjoy staying at a winery hotel that features winery tours. You may also be looking for things to do on long island this weekend because you both enjoy the location. In that case, you may choose to stay at a long island resort.
If you do not know what your significant other likes or think they may dislike what you have planned, it never hurts to ask. It is not a requirement that weekend getaways to a resort need to be a surprise. Getting their input can help you to plan little things here and there throughout your weekend that can help amplify your experience together. For instance, you may schedule them a massage in the resort spa.
Book a Room
If you are planning a romantic weekend getaway, you will always want to call the resort in advance to make reservations to stay at the hotel. It can spell disaster if you wait until you have arrived at the resort to try and book a hotel, as they may be all booked up. This can quickly sour your romantic getaway.
Instead, call in advance. This is also a great time to inquire about additional activities you are interested in doing. This is because this can provide you with more information on those activities, if there is a waitlist for those activities, and the occupancy for those activities. This information could help you determine what you partake in during your romantic getaway.
Leave Plenty of Room for Free Time
One of the most common mistakes people make when planning a resort romantic getaway is that they overbook activities. Couples who do this end up feeling rushed and do not get to fully enjoy each activity. Instead, leave some room in your schedule for free time that should accumulate to at least a few hours each day. You might see something that you want to do that you did not plan for and now you will have the time to do it!
Always Stay Optimistic

You could let it ruin your trip or you could prevent it from ruining your trip. Let’s face it that sometimes plans just don’t go as planned. But, this does not mean that your whole romantic getaway is ruined. Remember the reason why you are on this trip and keep in mind that as long as you two are together, there is nothing that could ruin your getaway.
