Hideaways Reveals Top 7 Romantic Escapes



Seven Sexy, Secret Sanctuaries
Even Cupid Hasn't Heard Of Reveals Its Most Romantic and Spontaneous Escapes for 2008

Portsmouth, NH--(January 2008)--"This Valentine's Day, think outside the box of chocolates," says Mike Thiel, Founder and President of the Hideaways Aficionado® Club. "Surprise your loved one with a most romantic gesture: Plan a quick trip-for-two to a clandestine hideout that's close to home . . . but not that close. Spending time--even if it's just a weekend--in a passionate place is a great way to reignite the spark and keep romance alive any time of year."

Mike and his team of travelers scour the globe in search of places with that special something, and without the madding crowds. "We look for lodgings with pleasing architecture and design, great but not obtrusive service, and heart-stopping views," says Mike. "Occasionally, we'll uncover a hidden gem that captures the very essence of passion."'s List of Seven Sexy, Secret Sanctuaries for 2008:
1. Willows Lodge (Woodinville, Washington)--Couples-only touches abound, like your own fireplace and soaking tub, hidden pocket gardens, and proximity to exceptional wine country.

2. Guana Island (Guana Island, BVI)--There's much to do on this private island, but you could spend the entire time in your covert cottage with its private 1/3-mile stretch of beach.

3. Maroma Resort & Spa (Riviera Maya, Mexico)--Enjoy a mega-dose of R&R with bright palapas, inviting handmade hammocks, and dinner under the stars with your feet in the sand.

4. Ripplecove Inn & Spa (Ayer's Cliff, Canada)--Stay as busy as you like (this was originally an outdoorsmans' lodge), but we'll understand if you simply hide away in your lakeview suite.

5. Sivory Punta Cana (Dominican Republic)--Arrive by helicopter to a waiting glass of chilled bubbly and a cool towel, and it only gets more indulgent and relaxing from here.

6. Turtle Inn (Placencia, Belize)--After frolicking in the warm water, relaxing in the spa, and dining on fresh seafood, retreat to your cottage's private garden for a sensuous, moonlit outdoor shower..

7. Little Palm Island (Florida Keys)--No TVs or phones will interrupt the mood; instead, you’ll find tempting hammocks, a Zen Garden, and superb cuisine, if you ever leave your bungalow.

"Cupid may have wings, but he hasn't been everywhere yet," says Mike. "Keep one step ahead of him, and the crowds, and enjoy any of these genuinely seductive resorts, any time of year."
