Plan a romantic escape for you and your loved one.

Enjoy time for just the two of you this Valentine's weekend. Take some time out for yourselves and choose a romantic, secluded getaway to unwind and relax, without travelling too far. Whether you want to look out to a panoramic nature view or cosy up in a country escape, Booking.com have provided six places perfect for your romantic weekend.

Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat, Northern NSW

Right on the New South Wales border is this magical hidden gem, offering uninterrupted views of natural landscape which can be taken in from the luxurious bath tub. Just an hours drive from Byron Bay, Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat is designed for couples wanting a nature escape from the comforts of either a cabin, bungalow or lodge with the sound of the creek flowing by you. Indulge in private dining or a picnic, where you can take in the views on a rainforest walk and eat under a 400-year-old fig tree.

QT Sydney, Sydney, NSW

As soon as you enter via the Art Deco entrance of QT's foyer, you'll know you're in for a unique type of luxury. Sharing a wall with Sydney's iconic State Theatre, the 1920s building is full of rich history and drama, which runs through the hotel's interior. With an in-house restaurant, bar and luxurious day spa, QT manages to provide a sense of escapism from the heart of the CBD. Step into a richly decorated room of red velvets and dark textures and make yourself an espresso martini from the cocktail kit they leave in every room. 

Islington Hotel, South Hobart, TAS

Just 20 minutes from Hobart airport will take you to Islington Hotel, a secluded luxe getaway with centuries of history and charm. Take in the extraordinary view of Mount Wellington from one of the 11 cosy bedrooms, with floor to ceiling windows looking out to natural, untouched landscapes. Indulge in a dinner for two at the in-house restaurant, serving sesonal and local food from Tasmania in a sophisticated menu. 

The Louise, Barossa Valley, SA

Nestled in South Australia's Barossa Valley region is The Louise, known for their exceptional restaurant and wine list using local and seasonal produce. Stay in one of the suites and enjoy rural luxury, complete with a private outdoor rain shower. Explore the local vineyards in a private tour of the Barossa Valley or enjoy a glass of wine in the outdoor covered courtyard with expansive views to the rolling vineyards ahead.

Yarra Valley Tiny House, Yarra Valley, VIC

Set in the beautiful Chum Creek just over an hour's drive from Melbourne, is this cosy and romantic hideaway. The tiny home may be compact, but it offers huge views of the surrounding landscape. Bring some supplies and settle in with a glass of wine on the patio, before making dinner in the well-equipped kitchen and then settling into your bedroom for a cosy sleep. Wake up to the sunrise, just the two of you. 

Niramaya Villas & Spa, Port Douglas, QLD

Nestled in the tropical resort town of Port Douglas is Niramaya Villas & Spa, a luxurious and incredibly romantic destination for a Valentine's escape. Make yourself at home in the self-contained, Balinese-inspired villas offering an easy walk to the resort's many facilities. Take a dip in the 30 metre infinity pool or book yourself in for a couple's spa treatment which you can have at the in-house spa or in the privacy of your own villa.
