Your Travel Love Language: 5 Opal Experiences to Fall For

What’s your love language? Words of affirmation? Quality time? The gift of travel, perhaps? This Valentine’s Day, be ours and find your perfect Opal experience match. Here we highlight 5 retreats across Opal from romantic to adventurous to pair with each of the 5 different love languages.

Love Language: Quality Time

Your Opal Match: Samoset Resort

Bring the heat. There’s something extra special about venturing to the East Coast to indulge in the cozier side of winter. Hidden under a blanket of snow, Samoset Resort oozes romantic charm from the moment you step into the grand lobby to be greeted by a roaring fireplace, ambient lighting, and its inviting coastal style. After spending the morning cross-country skiing through the Camden Snowbowl, surprise your lover with a reservation at the spa where you’ll be treated to a well-deserved Couples Massage… the perfect way to work out any kinks your outdoor activities may have caused. And a dining experience at La Bella Vita Italian Restaurant or an afternoon at Enoteca Lounge? We’ll happily speak that love language anytime.

Love Language: Physical Touch

Your Opal Match: Opal Grand Oceanfront Resort & Spa

Did someone say Couples Facials? There’s nothing sexier than becoming the best version of yourselves, together! Get your mind-body connection in check with a trip to Delray Beach’s own wellness oasis, Opal Grand Oceanfront Resort & Spa. The Tammy Fender Spa has endless options for full-body self-care, including a range of intentional spa treatments, energy work, and mindfulness services, but there’s one service you’d be remiss to leave without indulging in. Tammy Fender’s renowned facials are a must. Backed by top-notch celebrity endorsements from Gwyneth Paltrow to Julianne Moore, visiting this spa without getting a facial is like going to Italy and not eating pasta. Plus, the lingering effects of physical touch will last long into your return back to reality.

Love Language: Words of Affirmation

Your Opal Match: Edgewater Beach Resort

Message in a bottle. You’ll have plenty of time to express your love for each other when your days are spent lounging under swaying palm trees by the pool and your only evening plans include sunset happy hours overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. With seven miles of sugar-white sand to stroll down hand-in-hand, your romantic evenings are reserved for connection and conversation as the sun goes down. Spend a few uninterrupted hours cuddled up under a cabana or retreat to your beachfront suite with a bottle of champagne to take advantage of all of the one-on-one time you can get. Turn your trip into a lasting memory by renewing your vows with your toes in the sand and your heart on your sleeve.

Love Language: Acts of Service

Your Opal Match: Lake Placid Lodge

Let nature take the reins. Book a stay at Lake Placid Lodge where Mother Nature’s acts of service are at play from the moment you arrive in the form of stunning lake views and crisp, mountain air. Upon checking in, toast to your arrival by enjoying a glass or two of the complimentary champagne chilled over ice. When the sun begins to set over the lake, retire for the night to your luxury, private lodging. Light the fireplace for you and yours and indulge in all of the provided fixings of a romantic evening: marshmallows for roasting, a bottle of red for sipping, and a crackling fireplace to let sparks fly. In the morning, start your day off as well as it ended by surprising your partner with in-room couple massages. 

Love Language: Gifts

Your Opal Match: An Opal Collection gift card

Give the gift of adventure. Does your partner want to lay in a cabana on a secluded tropical island? Is traveling by boat on the top of their bucket list? Are they looking for an idyllic East Coast escape? Fortunately, you don’t have to have all of the answers! Give the gift of travel with an Opal gift card and unwrap an amazing trip to any of our 21 properties dotting the East Coast from scenic Maine to the Florida Keys! Send this quiz to your partner (or better yet, take it together!) to find your perfect Opal destination match.
