Romantic Avani getaways that are worth visiting anytime of the year
Love knows no bounds. So go the extra mile even if it's no longer Valentine's Day and whisk your soulmate away. Fall for adventure, frolic with freedom and find a new story. Embark on a journey to unexpected places with the one who makes you feel most at home.
Sepang – Malaysia
Bring your love alive in a fast-paced environment. The International Circuit in Sepang is the home of speed. Experience the rush from the sidelines and cheer on the racers. Or chase the adrenaline boost and take to the track yourself. But if Formula One isn’t the right concoction for you, a short drive under the speed limit will deliver you to Bangsar, the hub of Kuala Lumpur’s thriving nightlife. When the brightly lit streets come alive after dark, the bustling bars, chic restaurants and reverberating nightclubs offer a hell of a good time. As long as you take a taxi home that is.
Where to stay: Avani Sepang Goldcoast Resort offers a welcome cool down after a day of adventure. Kick back on the edge of the water or surrender to the deep relaxation of a luxurious massage. For some alone time with your loved one, you can occupy your Polynesia-inspired overwater villa from dusk to dawn with our in-room service. If a candlelit dinner is on the cards, we have casual, formal and local dining options waiting at any of our five restaurants.
Kalutara – Sri Lanka
Romance is what you make it. Retreat to the palm-fringed shorelines of Sri Lanka and saunter barefoot along stretches of golden, sun-warmed sands. This destination is overflowing with natural and cultural experiences. In the charming town of Kalutara lies a rich history awaiting discovery. The Fa Hien Caves are inhabited by the remnants of one of the oldest prehistoric human settlements. And if ancient fossils aren’t your idea of cute, take a trip to the Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery and support the conservation of Sri Lanka’s native wildlife.
Where to stay: Your significant other deserves to see your multifaceted nature. So let your wild and your tame side merge in Avani Kalutara Resort. Surrounded by water on three sides, the jungle is right on your doorstep. Meanwhile, the contemporary energy of our rooms defies the rich and tangled greenery outside.
Luang Prabang – Laos
Who needs Cupid when the world around you can provide all the spice you need. Luang Prabang is an adventure for the senses. The smell of world-class coffee is sure to get you out of bed early, no matter how late you stayed up the night before. Shake off the sleepiness and feel the burn in your legs on a trek up Phousi Hill. Spend the day exploring ancient temples and charming streetscapes, or for added kick, devour some spicy delicacies at a local market. Then kick back and toast the sunset on the sleepy banks of the Mekong.
Where to stay: For an authentic city stay in the hub of Luang Prabang’s old town, Avani+ Luang Prabang Hotel has everything you need. Just a short stroll from the Mekong River, energetic cafés, elegant restaurants and the colourful night market, the hotel's perfect location means you’ll have no shortage of ways to spend time together. Choose to venture into the city, or on slower days enjoy the view of Mount Phousi from your room.
Phuket – Thailand
Glide over the tranquil turquoise waters of Phang Nga Bay. Boogie the night away on the crescent moon stretch of Patong Beach. Soak in the ancient culture of Old Phuket Town. In Phuket, there is no shortage of experiences to enjoy together. You just need to figure out how to fit them all in.
Where to stay: At Avani+ Mai Khao Phuket Suites & Villas we offer a space for you to live your love. Recline in the sun and sip on a signature cocktail from our swim-up bar. Drink some bubbly in the bubbles of our Jacuzzi under a starry sky. Whether you need a chill hideaway or a springboard for adventure, this is the Phuket base for you.
Lisbon – Portugal
This historical haven is the place where time stands still. Walk along the coast to the Belém tower. Conquer the bulwarks of St. George’s Castle which towers over red roofed houses. If your legs are wobbly after the hike, you can rattle back down the cobbled streets on Lisbon’s historic tramlines. Sunsets are cliché for a reason, and Lisbon does them spectacularly. Complete your day and take in the natural show from the shoreline of the Ribeira das Naus.
Where to stay: Find your place of rest in the very heart of Lisbon. The comfort of our contemporary oasis defies the bustle of Avenida Liberdade, Lisbon’s main shopping street. Tired? Bask in the natural light of our naturally lit rooms. Peckish? Nip out to a local bakery for a Pastéis de Nata. Starving? Tickle your tastebuds with some Japanese flavours at Geisha by Olivier Restaurant. Meet at Avani Avenida Liberdade Lisbon Hotel and balance the old with the new.
