Kyoto, Japan

Kyoto (which was voted the best city in the world twice in a row by Travel + Leisure) features incredible food and incredible temples, but the real showstopper are its many cherry blossom trees. Take a stroll under their pink crowns — the springtime Hanami festivals in Maruyama Park are especially breathtaking.

Nihiwatu, Sumba, Indonesia

This little known island in Indonesia is home to the best hotel in the world, according to Travel + Leisure. Formerly a simple surf hotel thanks to the area's legendary swell and left hand breaks, it was recently turned into a seriously luxurious, totally off-the-grid resort and spa featuring private villas with private pools, as well as empty, untouched beaches. Surfing at world's best hotel? Sheer perfection for the adventurous couple.

Savannah, Georgia

Nicknamed the "Forest City" thanks to its abundance of live oak and ample Spanish moss providing shade, Savannah is super romantic by any standard. It's got cobblestone streets, cute bed and breakfasts galore, and 21 lush public squares ringed by beautiful old homes, but you can take the romance up another notch by riding a horse-drawn carriage through the historic district.

Lounge in the waters of Tabacon, a spa and resort built in a lush rainforest reserve right at the base of the Arenal Volcano. The volcano's magma is what heats the mineral springs that gush through Tabacon. The spa's bungalows are ideal for couples and offer treatments that range from facials to massages.

Zermatt, Switzerland

Hit the snowy slopes of Zermatt and enjoy views of one of Switzerland's most majestic peaks, the Matterhorn. If you're not into winter sports, explore the resort's many boutiques and then retreat to the fireplace in your cozy cabin with a glass of wine.

Sabi Sands Game Reserve, South Africa

There's nothing like a little impending danger to bring you and your partner closer together. Spend a few nights in a luxurious lodge smack dab in the middle of the African bush, sharing a view with animals ranging from leopards to elephants. It'll be both thrilling and romantic.
