Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea (Hawaii)

The gorgeous landscape of Maui is custom-made for romance. Boasting year-round bikini-friendly temperatures and a diverse lineup of recreation — from posh spas and postcard-worthy beaches to world-class golf courses and waterfall hiking — this Hawaiian island is a tropical respite from the real world.

Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea (Hawaii)

Once you set foot in the 5-star Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, you'll be hard-pressed to break free from the poolside foot massages, Japanese Kobe beef at Duo, complimentary activities and endless thoughtful amenities.

L'Auberge Carmel (California)

With its mix of chic boutiques, art galleries and bistros, the coastal village of Carmel, where Clint Eastwood was once mayor, caters to well-heeled travelers. This former artists' colony is now a romantic refuge for those who appreciate a refined and slow-paced getaway.

L'Auberge Carmel (California)

Built in 1929 and later renovated, L'Auberge is an intentionally intimate boutique hotel. Its 20 rooms have French windows, ocean views, comfy king- or queen-size beds, decadent down bedding, oversize tubs and heated bathroom floors. The hotel's 12-table restaurant, Aubergine, is equally beguiling and features a 4,500-bottle wine cellar.

The Setai (Miami)

Packed with runway-ready locals, glamorous nightclubs, spectacular warm weather and picture-perfect beaches, there's something inherently sexy about Miami's South Beach. The ultimate getaway for nightlife lovers is its Ocean Drive strip of restaurants and clubs, and there are plenty of swanky places to sleep in late after a night on the town.

The Setai (Miami)

Among the most luxurious places in Miami is the Asian-inspired Setai. A Zen-like counterbalance to trendier hotels, it features suites that are spacious and serene, three pools that are kept at three different temperatures, and a hotel spa that offers in-room treatments. When the sun goes down, the hotel's courtyard transforms into a sexy lounge with mood-making ambient music.

Wickaninnish Inn (British Columbia)

Few places in the world are more romantic than the relatively unspoiled town of Tofino. Tucked away on the western end of British Columbia's Vancouver Island, you'll spend days meandering through Pacific Rim National Park Reserve or kayaking, surfing and whale-watching at Long Beach, which is widely considered to be one of the best oceanfronts in all of Canada.

Wickaninnish Inn (British Columbia)

After sunset, cuddle up in front of a fireplace to listen to the crashing waves with a glass of local wine. Romantics will love the posh environs of the Wickaninnish Inn, where every room boasts ocean or beach views. Try side-by-side couple's treatments at the resort's elegant Ancient Cedars Spa.

Live Aqua Cancun (Mexico)

Cancun gets a bad rap for resorts filled with loud party crowds or overrun by energetic children, but this Mexican-owned Grupo Posadas property defies such silly notions. Despite its Zona Hotelera address, calm, privacy and panoramic blue skies prevail at this tony, all-inclusive resort.

Live Aqua Cancun (Mexico)

Seven on-site restaurants let you have your pick of cuisines, and Aqua Club rooms grant guests access to a VIP lounge. If you really want to splurge, book a suite with its own whirlpool tub.

Viceroy Santa Monica (California)

Think SoCal sophistication sans the snobbery of other nearby beachfront locales. A mere 16 miles west of the hustle and bustle of downtown Los Angeles, Santa Monica is the quintessential laid-back California beach town. Steal smooches with your honey on the Ferris wheel at Santa Monica Pier, admire the always-stunning sunsets or shop till you drop at the Third Street Promenade, a retail mecca.

Viceroy Santa Monica (California)

For a romantic rendezvous, indulge yourselves at the Viceroy Santa Monica, from private poolside cabanas to retro-style bikes that guests can borrow to cruise along the beach to top-notch dining at the property's restaurant, Cast.
