New Year’s Eve is a special night. A time to reflect on the past year, to cherish the good times, let go of the bad, and look forward to the dawning of a new era. Perhaps you and your loved one have bright aspirations or a newfound determination to make some changes. Whatever your goals or plans, when the clock strikes midnight, nothing can feel more romantic than sharing a kiss with your significant other and feeling excited about the future together.
I remember with fondness celebrating with my husband, our last New Year’s Eve together before our first son came along. We went to a glittering black dinner ball with a seven-course dinner, live band and champagne at midnight. It was hugely exciting being able to enjoy the wonderful atmosphere which marked a significant occasion and then retire to our room afterwards. Even more of a treat to be able to use the spa the following morning and devour a cooked breakfast.
So whether you want to celebrate the New Year with a bang or in a quieter setting – perhaps over a sumptuous meal in candlelight, or watch fireworks explode in the night sky – there are so many options for New Year’s Eve getaways. From slick city breaks, luxurious countryside retreats or cosy intimate inns, we’ve round up the very best of New Year’s Eve breaks for couples.
