New York, NY (February 13, 2017) — Recognizing that even the most romantic among us might still be searching for the perfect Valentine’s gift, some of the top travel agent advisors from Protravel International – the travel industry’s leading luxury corporate and leisure travel agency with an award-winning reputation – are coming to the rescue. A cross-section of Protravel’s best-in-class luxury travel advisors are recommending their top picks among countless romantic destinations. Whether it is for a luxurious love-filled getaway, honeymoon or destination wedding, the recommended destinations span the globe, including French Polynesia, the Seychelles and Bali, along with prime locales a little closer to home.

French Polynesia

“For a honeymoon with adventure, luxury, warm water and breathtaking views, take a Paul Gauguin cruise through French Polynesia – experience five islands but only unpack once. Visit the pearl farms and vanilla plantations on Taha’a, and feed the blue-eyed eels in Huahine. Stay overnight at both Moorea and Bora Bora and be sure not to miss Tahiti’s black sand beaches and hidden grottos before you leave.” – Ashley Les, Protravel agent (New York, NY)

“I can’t imagine a more romantic setting than the Brando – a luxury resort on Marlon Brando’s private island in Tahiti consisting of 27 secluded private villas. Once you arrive at the resort there is nowhere else to go, so couples can enjoy each other, swim in the clear warm waters of Tahiti and relax at the amazing spa.” – Sandie Wiesenthal, Protravel agent (Beverly Hills, CA)

The Seychelles

“Relatively off-the-beaten-path, the Seychelles is ideal for the ultimate in quiet, less crowded, safe and memorable romantic getaways. Offering pristine beaches, a smorgasbord of cuisines and cultures, the friendly islands are easily accessible from the U.S. My Tip: Spend a week in paradise and incorporate a one or two-day visit to Dubai or Abu Dhabi on the way there or home.” –Vikram Seshadri, Protravel agent (Beverly Hills, CA)


“Known as the ‘Island of the Gods,’ Bali enchants couples with its rich culture, temples, and natural beauty. My tip: Stay at the Alila Uluwatu, an eco-friendly resort with beautifully designed villas with private pools and cabanas, and let the innovative concierge exceed your expectations.” – Elaine Pesky, Protravel agent (New York, NY)


“The Jamaica Inn is an authentic, very romantic old-world style resort in Ocho Rios. Perfect for couples, the resort offers exceptional service and staff, and every room has a private verandah and no TVs. My tip: Stay in ‘Cottage 3’ located on the cliff, with a private plunge pool and stairs to the ocean and beach. Also, sign up for a couple’s massage at the spa with treatment rooms hidden in the trees.” – Stephanie Durst, Protravel agent (Syosset, NY)


“On Lanai couples can enjoy beautiful secluded beaches with clear water and coral reefs, take a private catamaran excursion, go horseback riding, or hike through the untouched island. My tip: Stay at the Four Seasons Lanai, which combines ‘the exotic nature of the desert setting with all the amenities of world-class service.’” – Denise Bonnici, Protravel agent (New York, NY)


Known for its palm-lined beaches and coral reefs for scuba diving, Playa del Carmen offers couples a combination of secluded relaxation, nature, and a wide range of activities. My tip: If you do not want to leave the hotel, stay at the Rosewood Mayakoba, an all-suite luxury resort with excellent service and complete privacy with its gated community.” – Jennifer Alcantara, Protravel agent (New York, NY)

Turks and Caicos

“Close to the East Coast, Turks and Caicos offers a variety of activities for couples from all walks of life. Relax on one of the many beautiful beaches or incorporate watersports and nature adventures into your getaway. My tip: Stay at Amanyara, a secluded beachfront resort with glass-walled stand-alone pavilions that open to beautiful terraces.” – Frank Toth, Protravel agent (New York, NY)

Southern California

“Not far from home, the beautiful Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach offers private cabanas by the pool, wonderful couples spa treatments, and gorgeous views. My Tip: Stay at the ocean view bungalow designed with Tuscan charm, limestone fireplaces, marble baths and a private terrace. Have breakfast in bed or at the Coliseum Grill and enjoy amazing Northern Italy cuisine at Andrea.” – Paulette Darensburg, Protravel agent (Beverly Hills, CA)

“The Monarch Beach Resort & Miraval Spa at Dana Points is perfect for active couples who love the beach. The resort offers relaxation accompanied with impeccable customer service creating the impression you are at your own beach house. My tip: Take advantage of the pool with private cabanas and spectacular ocean views, the amazing spa and group exercise activities.” – Kim Continetti, Protravel agent (San Diego, CA)

“The recently re-opened Ranch at Laguna Beach is a great hidden gem. With casual, comfortable atmosphere, fine dining, a 9-hole golf course, and staff going out of their way to meet your requests, the resort is perfect for a quiet romantic getaway.” – Gloria Lopez, Protravel manager (Pasadena, CA)
