How to Plan a Surprise Valentine's Getaway

How to Plan a Surprise Valentine's Getaway

The most romantic time of the year is upon us again, a time when we look forward to spending quality time with that special person in our life. This year why not treat your loved one to a surprise romantic getaway for Valentine’s Day.

 

The first and most important thing to do is choose where you want to go. Is there somewhere that holds special memories for both of you? Think carefully about the location as this could make or break the trip. Considering it’s still officially the winter season a trip to romantic countryside hotel could be the answer.

Why not treat the both of you to a relaxing weekend of pampering and delicious food at DoubleTree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro. We offer a range of pamper packages or if you prefer a more active trip we can recommend nearby outdoor activities.

 

Remember, it’s probably not best to book your getaway on your joint account if you want it to stay a surprise!

Tell a Lie

Once you have booked your getaway you will need to plan a cover story to get your other half to the destination without arousing suspicions. You could tell them you want to visit a new restaurant or shop in the area; anything that won’t make them suspicious of your actions.

Pack for both of you

Before you begin rummaging through your partner’s wardrobe make sure you are alone! Pack a bag with the basics and also some evening-wear if you are planning a romantic dinner. Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular days for marriage proposals so if this is part of your secret plan – don’t forget the ring!

Book a romantic dinner

Why not go a step further and book a surprise romantic meal. At DoubleTree by Hilton Dunblane, you can dine in our signature restaurant The Kailyard, by Nick Nairn. Nick has put together some special tasting platters for you and your loved one to enjoy, take a look at our Valentine's Menu.

Remember Valentine’s Day is one of the busiest days of the year so start planning your surprise getaway today. Check out our Valentine's Day gift vouchers from £25 and book your romantic Valentine’s break at DoubleTree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro.
