The winter season is coming, bringing with it the usual inclement snow, freezing temperatures, and holiday hustle and bustle. With cold, chilly days on the horizon, family gatherings to plan, and an endless list of holiday shopping to be done, it can be hard to find designated time for your partner. This year, escape from the winter stress with a cozy, romantic getaway for two. Picture you and your loved one nestled in a cozy mountain cabin, snuggled up by the fireplace with a serene view of a quiet, snow-covered landscape. Or maybe you prefer to retreat away from the cold by booking a beach vacation at a tropical destination. Whether you’d like to enjoy the cultural delights of a big city or prefer a more relaxed approach with a focus on getting back into nature, this winter a new romantic adventure awaits you – and Rosedale Travel has all the resources you need to create the most intimate, activity-packed trip for you and your partner.
There’s nothing quite like celebrating New Year’s Eve in NYC! Although January in New York is chilly, it’s relatively easy to get to Manhattan thanks to a wide range of flights arriving into their three different airports. Plus, there are so many incredible places and things to see that are truly unique to NYC in the wintertime, like ice skating at Rockefeller Center, enjoying holiday window displays along Saks 5th Avenue, or getting tickets to see The Nutcracker at The Lincoln Center. Book a trip with your partner to stay in the legendary landmark, The Carlyle, an exquisite art-deco luxury hotel built in 1930 known for its stunning views and rich history. You’ll have the pleasure of being situated on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, within walking distance of Central Park, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, and other points of interest. Indulge in the elegant accommodations and exclusive wellness offerings by day, and take advantage of live music and cocktails by night in the famous Bemelmans bar.
Retreat to the wild, untamed beauty of Montana’s big sky country. With incredible views of the Spanish Peaks mountain range, Montage Big Sky is a world-class resort settled just 45 minutes from Yellowstone National Park. For those that prefer outdoorsy activities, Big Sky offers skiing, snowboarding, golfing, fishing, horseback riding, and plenty of other excursions. Whether you’re taking a guided safari to Yellowstone or planning a “pamper date” with your partner at the holistic spa, this luxurious resort has something for everyone, especially if you’re a recreational enthusiast! Since Montage is a bigger resort, it has the advantage of shorter wait times, while still feeling quiet and secluded. There are plenty of opportunities for you and your partner to plan a romantic evening – for example, a magical sleigh ride to a private dinner in a log cabin! And if you book with a Virtuoso member like Rosedale Travel, you’ll have access to exclusive offers and amenities!
This elegant family estate provides the perfect couples’ retreat that will let you experience ultimate leisure and relaxation. Choose a peaceful, secluded wine-country getaway at Meadowood Napa Valley to appreciate the agricultural history and natural beauty of the Napa Valley area. In addition to scenic views of the hundreds of surrounding vineyards, book a stay in the charming cottage Hill House suites while participating in wine tastings, locally-sourced cuisine, and an award-winning spa. Make sure to spend at least a full day at the resort to fully enjoy the wellness services, ideally while sipping wine or getting a massage with your someone special by the pool! Rosedale Travel can get your romantic weekend getaway scheduled for this winter, complete with extra perks!
Hop on a flight to Mexico to escape the snow and soak up the sun for a beach holiday!

Nestled within the Mayan rainforest along Playa del Carmen, this luxury boutique hotel is strictly “adults only,” offering oceanfront suites with butler service, a rejuvenating spa, chocolateria, and all-inclusive tailored excursions. Plus, this hotel is running an exclusive offer only available through Virtuoso travel advisors:

Yes, you can go to Paris for a long weekend as long as you have a plan that works for you! And what’s better than taking a much needed couples trip to the City of Love itself? Don’t worry – our Rosedale Travel team will help you plan ahead to accommodate jet lag (see our tips and check out the Timeshifter app).
