The best romantic getaway spot

St. Lucia is for lovers, and the new Paradise Ridge collection of villas and suites at the famed Ladera resort is turning its romance knob up to 11. No-fourth-wall suites open to views of the iconic Pitons that look close enough to touch. And so do the moonbows that appear here at night because of the resort's unique position between the two Piton spires.

It's like the night sky was put there just for you two as you stargaze, share chef Nigel's plantain gratin with coconut sauce, and sip the handcrafted aphrodisiac rum you learned to make earlier. Yes, your private butler is available 24/7, but nighttime at the Ladera Resort St. Lucia is all about alone time. Paradise Ridge suites from $1,800 a night.
