Trying to plan the perfect Valentine’s Day? Many people focus on flowers, chocolates, and sparkling wine. But you’ll have a much more memorable holiday weekend if you escape to a design hotel instead. Here are two stunning places to stay this weekend, one to visit this spring, and another to put on your wish list for next year.
Uçhisar: Sleep in a cave room, relax on an open-air terrace, sip tea from a tulip-shaped glass, and watch hot air balloons rise in the sky in Cappadocia.
Dambulla: Swim in an infinity pool, stare at a rock fortress, and hang out with monkeys at a bird-shaped hotel in Sri Lanka.
Sonora Island: Wait until after the holiday, and then cruise through the Discovery Islands, fly fish for trout, see animals in their natural habitat, and stay at an eco-adventure resort outside of Vancouver this spring.
Tokeh: Dream of spending next Valentine’s Day walking along a beautiful beach, playing with rescued chimps, and exploring a ruined fort along the coast of Sierra Leone.
