Romance this summer.
People are thinking big this year with their vacations, planning longer trips and spending more on experiences. Travelers are looking to treat themselves after the heartbreak of the past two years. So this summer, how about a romantic vacation with your partner to rekindle the romance? Walk the beach, sit by the pool with cocktails in hand, get a massage together, and dine under the stars.
To help you narrow down your choices, we’ve found two amazing deals: one in the Turks and Caicos Islands and another in Italy. Different parts of the world, so you can choose between Europe (and cover more countries) and the island paradise of the Caribbean. The best part? These are fully refundable, so you can request a refund if your plans (or the situation in the world) change.
Turks and Caicos Islands
If you love the beach, look no further than the blue waters of the Turks and Caicos Islands. Soft sand under your feet, colorful corals in clear waters when you dive, bathing suits and above all, privacy.
You can stay all inclusive East Bay Resort with stunning views of beautiful East Bay Beach and the Caribbean Sea. The beachfront resort has restaurants, a spa, and a pool, but if you want to add a little adventure spice to your trip, go scuba diving and snorkeling with diving instructors. The resort has a PADI dive shop on site and it’s very close to the best dive sites on the island.

You can stay in a beachfront suite for five nights with your partner for $2,299. The suite features a large balcony with pool and beach views, an oceanfront living room, and a full kitchen. Upgrading to the One-Bedroom Panoramic View Suite will cost $2,660.
Those who book this offer can travel until December 19, 2022. You’ll have all meals included, plus drinks; activities such as paddleboarding, snorkeling and kayaking; and round trip airport/ferry and hotel transfers.
Let us now come to the other part of the world. A summer trip to Italy is another dream, but we don’t suggest the usual suspects of Rome and Venice. This offer takes you to southern Italy, off the Amalfi Coast, on the island of Ischia.
A little quieter than its bustling cousin Capri, the volcanic island of Ischia is known for its quaint villages, thermal baths and dramatic cliffs. From April 15 to October 16 (some dates unavailable), Botania Relais & Spa offers you 44% off.
Stay four nights in a Superior room for $1,279 and more from April 15 to May 31 and from September 19 to October 16. The package in June and July will cost more, at $1,649. But here’s what you get: a daily breakfast for two, a two-course cooking class, and a round-trip boat trip to Capri. You can add additional nights to your itinerary for $279 or upgrade to a half-board meal plan for $71 per person per night.
The adults-only hotel has a swimming pool, reading room, spa, restaurants and bar, and the most incredible three acres of manicured parks and gardens. San Montano Beach and Negombo Spa Park are below the hotel, and there’s also an outdoor amphitheater to enjoy live music and evening shows. The hotel can also recommend sailing trips, thermal baths and beaches. The Poseidon Gardens, Europe’s largest thermal springs park, are a must-see.
