6 Unique Travel Destinations for Your Next Couples Trip

Family vacations are a great time to connect and unwind with your kids. However, every now and then a trip alone with your spouse is a healthy way to revitalize romance in your relationship. Cozy vacation rentals, delicious meals, and vino, long romantic walks in some of the best destinations on the planet. There are some stunning places to visit on vacation with your better half!

However, with such an abundance of destination options, it’s tricky to know which places to choose. Throw in one of your favorite beaches and a few big cities, and you risk arguing before you even check in for the flight.  

Thankfully, we’ve narrowed it down to a list of unique, fabulous destinations. All of which can serve as the perfect facilitator for an unforgettable romantic getaway. So let’s dive in and explore some of the world’s lesser-known but equally outstanding couples destinations. 

London, United Kingdom  

London isn’t particularly known for its romance, especially when faced off against its European rivals for the “city of love” title, such as Rome or Paris. However, London is an excellent destination for couples. Head to the city at Christmas, and you have all the ingredients needed for the ideal romantic vacation. At this time of year, the British capital showcases Christmas markets, beautiful seasonal lights, and, if you’re lucky, snow. 

Just picture it — walking hand in hand under the Christmas lights before retreating to a cozy Airbnb in the city center. It’s the stuff of romantic dreams, right? The city has luxury accommodation options and cozy Airbnbs to match. Perfect for escaping the winter chill. Add in the world-class cuisine and the Christmas charm, and you suddenly have the makings for the most romantic trip imaginable. 


While we’re focusing on the lesser-known romantic destinations, we couldn’t exclude Rome. Already well-established as one of the most romantic destinations in the world, there’s more to the city than sharing ravioli in front of the Colosseum. 

With an affordable cost of living for European standards, history, and stunning Airbnbs, you have the ideal base to explore all this ancient city has to offer. Oh, and that’s not to mention the pizza and pasta. Some say they’d travel to Rome specifically for the food. 


It’s no secret the Hawaiian islands are one of the most sought-after destinations on earth. While Oahu and Maui are well-established on the tourist trail, Kauai receives significantly fewer visitors. However, Kuaui provides natural beauty and stunning landscapes equally as good, if not better. 

With a dramatic volcanic coastline, lush jungle trails, and views pulled straight from Jurassic Park, the island is a dream. Striking Crayola green hills, dropping dramatically onto pristine white sands and the bluest waters on earth, it is how you imagine the islands. What a place to head to with your most beloved. 


You don’t need us to tell you why the Maldives makes such an outstanding couples’ destination. After all, the archipelago is plucked straight from a dream. We’re talking tranquil azure waters, thriving coral reefs, great snorkeling/surfing, and ribbons of white sand linking it all together. Add in some of the globe’s most luxurious resorts, perfect year-round weather, and viola – the perfect couples’ destination. 

New Delhi 

Nothing brings you closer together than getting out of your comfort zone. If you’re coming from North America or Europe, India takes you firmly away from your comfort zone. A true culture shock for even the most season of travelers. Throwing yourself into somewhere so different cultures is something that not only brings you closer together but creates stories to last a lifetime. 

India has a charm unlike anywhere else, and New Delhi, in particular, has numerous sites to see, including the Taj Mahal. With an affordable cost of living, you can book luxury accommodation for less than rent at home. Combine what with your best friend and fantastic food, and you have a trip you won’t forget anytime soon. 


Tanzania is a well-established tourist destination, but for many North Americans, it’s often overlooked as a romantic holiday destination. After all, it’ll take multiple days of traveling. But embark on this long journey, and you’ll undoubtedly be rewarded. 

Zanzibar is an African island paradise in Tanzania with stunning white sand beaches, sparkling turquoise waters, and a melting pot of culture. Go snorkeling, take long romantic strolls along the sand, and retreat to some of Africa’s most luxurious resorts. Zanzibar truly has everything you need for a romantic island getaway. 


With so many locations offering the opportunity for couples to relax, unwind and explore, it’s tricky to know where to go. You can find even more destinations to visit from Couples Travel. We hope some of these unique locations inspire you to get on the road and explore.
