Jamaica Inn — Ochos Rios, Jamaica

Fun fact: Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller spent their honeymoon at the Jamaica Inn in 1957. This Valentine’s Day, you can recreate poses from that event (or create your own) with a couples photoshoot on the beach here as an add-on to the resort’s Celebration of Love package.

Located on a secluded, sandy cove juxtaposed against turquoise waters just east of Ocho Rios, the boutique resort has attracted celebrities since opening in the mid-20th century. The hotel sits on 8 acres and exudes a romantic, yesteryear flair with its laid-back island glam and lack of in-room TVs. Suites have Caribbean Sea views from furnished balconies, and the cottages are the perfect place to plan a proposal (they come with private plunge pools and outdoor showers).

The Celebration of Love package includes a minimum two-night stay as well as a bottle of chilled Champagne upon arrival, a floating tray breakfast in your plunge pool if you book a cottage, a five-course dinner under the stars with live entertainment at the Terrace Restaurant, a private candlelit dinner on the beach at Teddy’s Beach Bar & Grill with a dedicated server and a one-hour couples massage at sunset. VIP airport transfers with fast-track access through immigration and security are also included.

Rates for the Celebration of Love Package at Jamaica Inn start at $1,821 per night. The package amenities are based on a minimum two-night occupancy, with additional nights from $751. A one-hour photo shoot costs an additional $500. To book, call or email the resort and mention the package to the concierge, who will assist you.

Little Palm Island Resort & Spa — Little Torch Key, Florida

The out-of-this-world Celestial Concierge package at Little Palm Island Resort & Spa will have you seeing stars this Valentine’s Day. The package, which starts at $50,000 for three nights, is focused on one-of-a-kind stargazing experiences paired with lavish amenities and included gifts.

The only private-island resort in the U.S., Little Palm Island is in a remote locale off the Florida Keys. It doesn’t see much light pollution, making it an ideal stargazing destination. The package includes three nights in an Island Romance Suite with a high-tech telescope for a romantic celestial experience. You’ll also have a dedicated, on-island Celestial Concierge to help plan the ultimate stargazing experience for two, including a two-hour private yacht cruise with high-tech binoculars and a constellation map, Champagne and light fare.

The reason this package is so expensive, however, is the personalized welcome amenities. Choose from a Van Cleef & Arpels Zodiaque long necklace in your zodiac sign, David Yurman Maritime Compass cufflinks and engraved Champagne coupe glasses with the longitude and latitude of the island.

The resort is an adults-only property only accessible by seaplane or boat. Set on 4 acres, it is a favored getaway for the world’s rich and famous. The grounds are beautiful, with crushed seashell pathways and pristine turquoise ocean views in all directions. From indulgent treatments in SpaTerre and sunrise yoga on the beach to delectable cuisine, Little Palm Island delivers a one-of-a-kind romantic experience.

Rates for the three-night package at Little Palm Island Resort & Spa start at $50,000. Call the resort directly to inquire about the Celestial Concierge package.
