The Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel is our 2012 Valentine’s Day winner for best overall romantic getaway. This hotel is one of my personal favorites! You feel like you are on vacation and far away from your normal routine as soon as you step into this hotel.
The property is gorgeous! You can see the beach throughout the hotel. Even the workout room overlooks the water. Mr. Cool and I love modern design and this hotel is both modern and elegant at the same time. The rooms are beautiful and the view is out of this world. You can watch the sunset and sunrise right from your balcony.
Their spa is also one of our favorites. If you stay at this hotel, visiting the spa is a must. In addition to the exceptional staff, we love the products that they use and their special relaxing showers.
The Raya is the restaurant on their property. It also has breathtaking views. The food is fabulous and their restaurant currently ranks #1 of all the Ritz-Carton resorts in the U.S.
We can’t say enough about this unique getaway resort. Their Valentines special this year is stay 2 nights and get the third for free. This averages out to less than $300 per night for a first class resort. For more information, please visit the Ritz-Carlton website.
