Best Retreat For Couples
Does your Romantic Fantasy include a Swimming Pool in your Hotel Suite? Mine did.
What do you seek in an epic night or two away from everything? How about zero obligations except connecting with the person you love? No laundry, no cooking, no cleaning, no drama.
This was just the sort of retreat my husband and I needed. With the stress of our jobs and the holidays, our love life was last on the to-do list.
Searching For the Right Retreat
So after a quick search of the most romantic places to go, the retreat we chose was Belamere Suites Hotel- home of the famous in-suite swimming pool- the Grand Royal Swimming Pool Suite. They were ranked #1 for Romance in the USA” by TripAdvisor as well as Traveller’s Choice’s Best of The Best. But what really got my attention was having our very own in-suite swimming pool. From the pictures, the pool looked huge. And in real life, it definitely did not disappoint.
The Retreat We've Dreamed of
Having our own pool was like a dream come true. We didn’t have to worry about the pool being too busy or full of kids. It was just us splashing around plus we had our own sauna, 2 person jetted whirlpool tub, a plush king-sized bed with fluffy pillows, crisp 300 thread count linens, a crystal fireplace, and 24-hour concierge service!
We stayed two nights, and for our second night, I surprised my husband by having booked an in-room couple’s massage. This was next level relaxation! We had candles and one hour of someone taking care of us for a change. My neck and back have never felt so good!
Something I definitely want to mention is how private and safe we felt checking in and out. Privacy is a must at Belamere. We had our very own suite key and garage door opener so we could go directly from check-in to oasis. We also opted for their contactless check-in. Friends ask if there were many people there to which I reply: 1. I wasn’t there for other people. 2. I have no idea because there are no common areas- no dining, no bar, no elevator, no main hall. None of that just our own immaculately cleaned retreat.
A Retreat Not So Far Away
And get this, there was so much to do in the area! Atlanta was less than an hour away. We even considered going there, but instead, we chose a more remote unique place for a day trip: Helen, Georgia. This is considered little Bavaria in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. There were cool little shops and tasty places to eat with a European feel.
All in all our 2-night stay at Belamere Suites was truly the getaway of a lifetime in an otherwise world of constant go go go. I tell all my girlfriends that they deserve a retreat like this! I know we did! We can’t wait to go back.
