For every seasonal imperative to speed up, cross off lists, and schedule commitments, there’s an equal and opposite obligation to slow down, breathe, and reconnect with the person you love—that’s just physics. And what better way to direct your caring energy than toward a romantic couple’s getaway? Each of the Vidanta resorts offers unique opportunities and amenities ideal to share. In this story, we’ll give you a rundown of some memorable ways couples can spend their time away, from a tranquil beachside serenade to a warming wax massage—there truly is something for everyone.
#1: Set the Mood with Food
There’s a reason why food is always romantic in the movies. Whether you’re mastering a new dish or enjoying a multicourse feast, nourishing your partner is a joy in itself. At Los Cabos, you and your partner can enjoy your choice of cooking classes at Si Snack: handmade pizzas and calzones on Mondays, and fresh ceviche on Wednesdays.
Not in the mood to cook? Guests of Mazatlán can opt for a romantic dinner at Il Forno di Gio, complete with bottle of wine and exquisite views of a fiery ocean sunset.
#2: Pamper Each Other
At Puerto Peñasco, relaxation is an all-day affair. Ease into your morning with a stretching class geared toward couples, where you and your partner will be led in a series of light stretching techniques guaranteed to bring you ever closer. If you’re feeling something a little less active, why not visit Brio Spa for a pair of pedicures? Sip on a glass of wine and nibble at chocolate-covered cherries while your feet are given the royal treatment.
Guests of Nuevo Vallarta may want to melt into Tibetan Healing Sounds, a soothing aural experience to better your bodies and minds. On the other hand, adventurous Los Cabos guests might elect for something a little hotter: a candle wax massage treatment, in which therapists use melting wax to warm and relax tired muscles, and perfume and soften the skin.
#3: Learn Something New
Recent studies confirm that couples who actively pursue new experiences enjoy longer, happier lives together. In the spirit of leaving routines back at home, Vidanta’s resorts offer an extraordinary range of opportunities to grow one’s comfort zone. Guests of Nuevo Vallarta might consider a tour of Almaverde, the 40-plus acre sustainable produce farm that supplies the resort’s restaurants, markets, and cafeterias.
If learning to compost isn’t quite the vibe you’re seeking, you might try Riviera Maya’s wine and painting class. Think of this as a Spanish-inflected drink-and-draw: you and your partner enjoy tapas, sample wines, and flex your creative muscles by creating a painting inspired by the natural beauty of Mexico.
Couples looking to raise their heart rates, look no further than the tropical rhythms of Latin dance lessons at Acapulco, or Riviera Maya’s expert-led paddleboard yoga—both designed to get you out of your element and into the shared satisfaction of surviving something new.
