Duck Walk at The Peabody Memphis

Duck Walk at The Peabody Memphis

For the last 80 years, The Peabody Memphis has provided an experience unlike any other hotel in the business – the Peabody Duck Walk. This must-see Memphis, Tennessee, attraction occurs twice daily at 11 a.m. and at 5 p.m. when five North American mallards climb their way out of the enormous marble fountain in the lobby, and waddle down a red carpet for everyone to enjoy. 960 1280

Heartbreak Hotel

Heartbreak Hotel

Make no mistake about it, the Heartbreak Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee, offers up a much different connotation than Elvis's lyrics displayed within the famed song. That being said, even though the "Heartbreak Hotel" was just a fictional place in his mind at the time, "although it's always crowded, you still can find some room," is one line that rings true year-round. Located across the street from Graceland, the fashionable boutique hotel features more than 120 rooms dedicated to "The King of Rock ‘n' Roll.” 960 1280

Bellagio Fountains

Bellagio Fountains

They don't call it the "Entertainment Capital of the World" for nothing! However, unless you’re dropping some major coin on the casino floor, most entertainment options in Las Vegas are going to cost you an arm and a leg. That's what makes the Bellagio's complimentary water show such a refreshing option for your entertainment. Ranging every 15 to 30 minutes depending on the day, this unprecedented water show is synced with famous musical tunes and light features, astounding millions of tourists each year. 960 1280

  

Splash Landings Hotel

Splash Landings Hotel

Splash Landings Hotel in the UK gives its guests the distinctive opportunity to visit the Caribbean without flying the near 12 hours it would take to cross over the Atlantic. And just like a trip to the Caribbean, you would have to try pretty hard not to have a good time. Experience what life is like on the high seas during the always-entertaining Pirate Weekend, take in the sites of the popular themed-rooms and attractions, or hop a ride on The Smiler (pictured above) for some adrenaline-pumping adventure. 960 1280

Bowling at Montage Deer Valley

Bowling at Montage Deer Valley

In most cases, snowy mountains and beautiful views are the first things that come to mind when you think of Park City, Utah. But if hitting the slopes or being pelted with snowballs isn’t your favorite form of entertainment, the Montage Deer Valley has you covered. From high-end shopping, top-notch dining options and a signature spa to nostalgic arcade games and a bowling alley, the Montage Deer Valley will make your stay one to remember. 960 1280

Andaz San Diego: Sweet Suite/Cabana Suite/Star Suite (San Diego)

Andaz San Diego: Sweet Suite/Cabana Suite/Star Suite (San Diego)

Get your sexy back at the Andaz San Diego — or at least scrub your sexy’s back in the Sweet Suite’s oversize shower or tub. No need to play a coy game of peekaboo when soaping up, thanks to the glass-enclosed bathroom. Reserve the Cabana Suite instead if you’re looking for cozy cuddling time in a private cabana by the rooftop pool, or invite a few friends to stay with you in the Star Suite, whose master bedroom is equipped with plush king bunk beds and a stripper pole. You can’t go wrong if singer/songwriter John Mayer was the first guest, right? 960 1280

Palms Casino Resort: Sky Villa (Las Vegas)

Palms Casino Resort: Sky Villa (Las Vegas)

Located in the Palms Casino Resort, the 2-story Sky Villa exudes sexiness with a dry sauna, a massage room, private balconies and a glass-enclosed pool that extends from the balcony to provide guests with a spectacular view of the Strip. Couples can keep the romance burning with the 2-way fireplace, large rotating bed and sunken tub with beaded curtains. We bet there’s just as much fun in this villa as there is on the Strip. 960 1280

Six Senses Ninh Van Bay: Water Pool Villa (Ninh Hòa, Vietnam)

Six Senses Ninh Van Bay: Water Pool Villa (Ninh Hòa, Vietnam)

Most people may not think of Vietnam as a sexy destination, but we’ve found a place that is the perfect setting for a romantic getaway for 2. In addition to a great view of Ninh Van Bay, the Water Pool Villas at Six Senses have all the comforts of a modern resort, plus plunge pools to watch the sun set; direct water access for snorkeling; a personal butler at your beck and call; and a private deck for sunbathing. Wake up every morning with an outdoor shower, or soak in the bathtub as you watch dawn break over the bay. A secluded villa for couples looking for serenity — now that’s sexy. 960 1280

Bellevue Syrene: Roccia Suite (Sorrento, Italy)

Bellevue Syrene: Roccia Suite (Sorrento, Italy)

With its Italian charm and sweeping views of the Tyrrhenian Sea, the Bellevue Syrene lures lovers like the Sirens’ intoxicating singing in Homer’s Odyssey. Regardless, guests will be happy to check in to the hotel’s beautiful Roccia Suite, which has a canopy bed just a few feet from a heated hydro-massage pool in an ancient Roman cave. Some of the suite’s rooms are carved out of bare stone, providing a unique living space. 960 1280

Charisma Suites Oia: Honeymoon Jacuzzi Suite (Santorini, Greece)

Newlyweds will enjoy a trip to Santorini, but the lucky lovers can make it even better by staying in a Honeymoon Jacuzzi Suite at Charisma Suites Oia. Not only do these suites overlook the crystal blue Aegean Sea, but they provide guests with perfect views of the caldera.

SLS South Beach: Tower Penthouse (Miami)

SLS South Beach: Tower Penthouse (Miami)

What could be sexier than the beautiful bodies that converge on South Beach? Well, maybe staying at the SLS South Beach. This luxurious hotel is known as one of the premier nightlife destinations in Miami, where locals and out-of-towners come to rub elbows with some of the hottest celebrities. The real star here, though, is the 1,596-square-foot Tower Penthouse, which includes an oversize soaking tub, a kitchen, a wet bar and views of the ocean and Hyde Beach. To truly understand its allure, consider that it was created by Kravitz Design, a company owned by rock’s sexiest roller, Lenny Kravitz. 960 1280

Gili Lankanfushi: Villa Suite (Maldives)

Gili Lankanfushi: Villa Suite (Maldives)

If you didn’t think the Maldives could get any sultrier, try staying in one of the Villa Suites at the Gili Lankanfushi. In addition to the resort’s delicious dining options, the world-class Meera Spa and jungle cinema, couples will enjoy a suite where they can wake up in bed with an amazing view of the sea; relax on the rooftop terrace or in the open-air living room; and spend quality time lounging on an overwater sundeck. Brushing your teeth in the semi-open-air bathroom doesn’t sound romantic, but it is if you get to steal a few glances of your partner in the glass-walled shower. Go ahead and jump in, because there’s enough room for 2. 960 1280

Rosewood Mayakoba: Beachfront Studio Suite (Playa del Carmen, Mexico)

Rosewood Mayakoba: Beachfront Studio Suite (Playa del Carmen, Mexico)

Go green and whisk your significant other away to a 1,600-acre, eco-friendly resort on the Riviera Maya. The Rosewood Mayakoba has 130 suites with individual docks, private plunge pools, garden showers and rooftop sundecks. You really can’t go wrong with any of its rooms, but the Beachfront Studio Suites sit right on the white-sand beach, providing easy access to the turquoise-blue, warm Caribbean waters. For a seductive adventure, go swimming in sacred underground caves, or find peace while getting a Mayan-inspired spa treatment, such as the Escape Together: Sun & Moon Journey, which includes a cacao scrub and wrap. It’ll be the sweetest 3 hours you’ll spend together. 960 1280

Ladera Resort: Suites at Paradise Ridge (St. Lucia)

Visitors staying at the Ladera Resort in St. Lucia will enjoy its lush, romantic surroundings. We suggest booking a suite perched on the hillside at Paradise Ridge. These suites — which are decorated with local artwork and furniture  — include 4-poster king beds, plunge pools and amazing views of the Caribbean Sea and the Pitons, making them an unbelievably sexy spot for couples. 960 1280

Hotel Shangri-La at the Ocean: Rock & Roll Suite (Santa Monica, CA)

Hotel Shangri-La at the Ocean: Rock & Roll Suite (Santa Monica, CA)

For those crazy kids looking for fun accommodations, we recommend the Hotel Shangri-La, which is just a stone’s throw away from the famed Santa Monica Pier. Enjoy a few amusement-park rides before indulging in the amenities of the Rock & Roll Suite. This room, decked out in ’80s décor, is on the same floor as the hotel’s new club, Suite 700, where guests can expect DJs to be spinning music into the early morning. The private veranda and complimentary chocolate-covered strawberries with Pinky Vodka are enough to keep the love flowing long after the music has died down. 960 1280

Pocono Palace: Champagne Tower Suite (East Stroudsburg, PA)

Pocono Palace: Champagne Tower Suite (East Stroudsburg, PA)

Not every couple wants an expensive trip to a luxurious resort; some prefer an affordable getaway at a budget-friendly hotel. We instantly thought of the Champagne Tower Suite at Pocono Palace. Yes, the accommodations may be cheesy, but the amenities are quite impressive, including a wood-burning fireplace, a heated, heart-shaped pool, a shower for 2, and a round, king-size bed below a ceiling lit like the stars twinkling in the midnight sky. Half the fun will be just trying to figure how to get into and out of the 7-foot Champagne glass whirlpool. 960 1280

Gansevoort Turks & Caicos: Oceanfront Terrace Studio (Providenciales, Turks & Caicos)

Gansevoort Turks & Caicos: Oceanfront Terrace Studio (Providenciales, Turks & Caicos)

Guests at the Gansevoort Turks & Caicos can go all out and rent more expensive rooms in the hotel, but we think the Oceanfront Terrace Studio is just as sexy as all the others. Enjoy the sprawling ocean view from the comfort of your bed, or open the floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors and step out onto the terrace. Private beachside dinners, the Exhale Mind Body Spa and the exclusive pool island pods are a few romantic hotel amenities to check out while staying here. After a long day coated in sunscreen, couples can head back to their room to lather up together in the oversize, glass-enclosed shower. 960 1280

Velassaru Maldives

Velassaru is on a private coral island, a 25-minute speedboat ride from the Maldive’s Malé airport. However, with 5 restaurants, 2 bars, a spa, and amazing amenities, you definitely won't be roughing it. 960 1280
