Valentine's Day may be over, but we're always in need of a romantic rendezvous. Whether you're itching to get holed up all day, or need a breather to see the sights, here are the sexiest hotel rooms in all of Europe for an sweet (or sassy), intimate romp across the pond.
Maison Suquet - Paris, France
Once a brothel, Maison Susquet was recently revamped by Jacques Garcia, who has always had a thing for red velvet and leopard skin. With just 14 rooms and 6 suites, this bijou hotel just steps from Moulin Rouge was inspired by its Belle Époque past, when it was home to the city’s working girls. If only those walls could talk!
Villa Orsula - Dubrovnik, Croatia
Also known as King's Landing, Dubrovnik is a stunning city that definitely deserves a visit. If you don't plan on getting out much, book a room at the Villa Orsula, which offers jaw dropping views over the fortified city, and the best terrace for sun-downers in town. Aside from that, the rooms are ultra plush with tip top service that's just a quick (romantic) sunset stroll to the city gate.
The Sanctum Soho Hotel - London, UK
Pushing the idea of a dirty weekend"to the extreme, the Sanctum Soho Hotel has put together a unique package for those wishing to experience a few shades of grey… The BXG suite features an "adults only" toy chest packed high-end erotic products (yours to keep for £150) that includes cuffs, a blindfold, a Spread the Love bar, feathers, "massager," BXG’s own Crystal ice cube, a Lelo Sensua suede whip, some essential reading, and a few more surprises.
Elounda Gulf Villas & Suites - Crete, Greece
Part of the Small Luxury Hotels group, this romantic resort does not feel small, but definitely is luxurious. Overlooking Elounda, it has all the hallmarks of a star-studded hideaway – from complete seclusion to plush interiors, private pools and a staff ready to chaufer you around in their Mercedes or golf cart at your beck and call. Even better? The full size fridge comes stocked with Toblerone and Veuve Cliquot.
The Spagna Royal Suite Hotel - Rome, Italy
Rome already oozes romance and this hotel lives up to the hype. With fabulous suites right in the heart of the city that are just a stone's throw from the Spanish Steps, if the location doesn't impess you, the blinged out, suspended bed might.
Grand Hotel Tremezzo - Lake Como, Italy
George Clooney's happy place is the perfect Italian retreat for the A-lister in all of us. Enjoy spectacular views from the Grand Hotel Tremezzo's rooftop suite as you jacuzzi under the stars. A heavenly hideaway, even the super glamorous marble bathroom has a view over the water.
Barceló Raval - Barcelona, Spain
Just a hop, skip, and a jump from Las Ramblas, this contemporary boutique hotel offers sleek 1970s inspired bedrooms with great views that stretch over the city. It boasts one of the city's greatest rooftop bars (the W's Eclipse is worth the trip too, but sadly indoors) so make this your spot for a cheeky cocktail before retiring.
The Dylan - Amsterdam, Netherlands
Amsterdam’s reputation as
sexy city should be enough to lure any pleasure seeker there. Discover the canals, the museums, the
cafes, and of course, the Red Light District, that is (happily) not as shady as
it sounds. Or, just hide away in utter luxury at the Dylan hotel, where you’ll
never want to leave the sleek and spacious suite
The White Orchid Hotel - Sivota, Greece
Overlooking the sparkling Ionian Sea, this adults-only boutique hotel is a real gem. With just 8 suites, it's both private and intimate. The Kinabalu Suite wins the award for the most romantic bathroom with a sexy outdoor tub and views to match. There's a large infinity pool, and a secluded cove nearby for those looking to get a little more adventurous.
The Kameha Grand - Zurich, Switzerland
Hole up in one of the Kameha's Burlesque Suites where the risqué atmosphere is set with a hot combination of velvet, tulle and silk satin - not to mention a box of Agent Provocateur surprises! Although the hotel claims to be a "business hotel," we suspect a lot of funny business is going on, as well.
