Heads up, romantics – Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Yes, already. Perfect for those wanting to go all-out this year, Myanmar's Memories Group has revealed an array of fabulous experiences. A whirlwind short break in southeast Asia for February 14th? Why not?
If your sweetheart is admittedly a little golf-mad, treat yourselves to the three-day Valentine's Package at Yangon's recently opened Awei Metta. Already gaining attention for its golf facilities, the five-star hotel is offering couples all throughout February a stay in a luxurious Gary Player Suite, plus a candlelit dinner for two at Oscar restaurant, a bottle of Champagne and a bouquet of red roses on arrival.
Seeking an unforgettable experience? Sail the sapphire seas of the Mergui Archipelago on Burma Boating's Valentine's Cruise (9-14 February). Taking just six to eight people (plus three crew), the intimate journey will visit islets, coral reefs and atolls, finishing with a sunset Prosecco toast and barefoot dinner on a deserted beach. Or, get your fill of adventure with a stay at Keinnara Loikaw. Known for its hinterland scenery, hiking, biking and tranquil atmosphere, Loikaw is ideal for escaping from the rest of the world – packages for two throughout Febraury start at US$200 for a two-night stay.
If it's just a relaxing getaway you're after, book a Romantic Getaway Package at Hotel Suggati in the sleepy port of Mawlamyaing. With sweeping views of the Salween River, the hotel is offering couples breakfast, a bottle of Prosecco, a bouquet of flowers, a romantic dinner for two, late checkout and a special Valentine's Day gift for just US$120 per night.
