If you are considering a romantic getaway for Valentine’s Day, you might be thinking of an exotic new city, a secluded beach resort or even an adventure upon the open seas. In Southeast Asia, there’s one country that’s got it all.

 Yearning in Yangon

When it comes to Valentine’s Day, Awei Metta is wooing the romantic with the gloss of its recent opening, and golf. Located in Yangon’s leafy suburbs, halfway between the international airport and a delightful downtown where you can meander among colonial architecture, this recently opened 5-star hotel offers French and Burmese cuisine, and overlooks the country’s finest golf course. A 3-day Valentine’s Package (available throughout February) includes a stay in a Gary Player Suite, a candlelit dinner for two by Chef Joseph at Oscar restaurant, and a bottle of champagne and bouquet of red roses upon arrival.

Sailing into the Sunset

The sapphire seas of the Mergui Archipelago are particularly calm at this time of year - so if your idea of relaxation is lying hand-in-hand on the bow of a yacht, you might enjoy Burma Boating’s Valentine’s Cruise on 9 to 14 February. The trip will take six to eight persons (plus three crew) sailing among a labyrinth of islets, coral reefs and atolls in one of the world’s last untouched paradises. As a special treat, the boat will anchor offshore on Valentine’s evening, while you and your other half dine barefoot on the sand of a deserted beach as you toast the sunset with a complimentary bottle of Prosecco.

As Sweet as Suggati

The sleepy port of Mawlamyaing [previously Moulmein] offers serenity and time to be together, and nowhere more so than at the Hotel Suggati, the top hotel in town, with its sweeping views across the majestic Salween River and stunning sunsets. Romantic Getaway Packages start at just US$120 per night, including breakfast, a bottle of Prosecco, a bouquet of flowers, a romantic dinner for two, and a special Valentine’s Day gift. Not only that, you can both lay under the covers till late – with a check-out at 4pm. Valid for stays from 7 to 21 February 2019.
