Stepping away from your normal life for a getaway can not only be great for your individual mental health, but it can also be a prime chance to get closer to your partner if you’re traveling with your S.O. Whether you’re going on your first big trip together or just looking to zhuzh things up... getting away from your usual surroundings and heading to a couples' focused retreat can take your love to even higher grounds.

While you don’t necessarily need to look for a place with pre-packaged couple’s activities to have a restorative trip together, it certainly makes things easier. All that time spent planning excursions, dinners, and sightseeings can be better spent enjoying each other’s company. And if you want your love to go even deeper, consider packing any of these couple games in your luggage, or even bookmarking these lists of questions to get to know each other better. These conversation starters can come in handy (there’s always downtime in your room or when waiting for food or drinks TBH), keep boredom at bay, and ya know—help you learn more about your boo.

If you're looking to rekindle your romance or just want to getaway for a vacay with your partner, here are 24 of the coolest couple's retreats in the world. Whether you wanna do a domestic weekend trip or just want ideas to start planning for a time when international travel feels somewhat normal again, we’ve got you.
