After months of staying safe at home due to Covid-19, surrounded by the same four walls, a romantic getaway to Apple Tree Hotel might be the relaxing adventure you need.

While our rooms are filled with everything you could need for a comfortable stay, including, luxury toiletries, high-speed Wi-Fi and tea and coffee making facilities, sometimes a little bit extra is required for a romantic hotel getaway.

If you are planning to surprise your ‘SO’ (significant other) with a lovely weekend, here are some ideas on what you can bring along to make the romantic trip memorable.

Come with a plan

While spontaneity is very romantic, you should have some semblance of a plan. Whether that plan includes the activities, you will do, or the time you are set to arrive and set off, it all helps go towards a smooth weekend plan.

Plan out what you will take, have a loose idea of what you want to do and when you plan to come back. A checklist always helps in cases like this.


That’s right, music is on this list! While dedicated mix-tapes are a thing of the past; you can still put together a playlist on your phone. Make it extra romantic and convenient by bringing along a Bluetooth speaker, so that when you explore the things to do, including the great outdoors, you can sit down, rest and listen to your favourite songs.

Bubble bath

While we do supply an ample amount of luxury toiletries, nothing beats your spouse’s favourite bubble bath. Chances are you will be doing the majority of your travelling in one day, so you might be too tired to explore the surrounding areas when you arrive. Instead, you can pull out their favourite bubble bath and have a romantic and relaxing evening in.

Couple this with your favourite bottle of bubbly (non-alcoholic or otherwise), and you have the set-up for your perfect night.

Battery-operated candles

Incorporate some advice from every romance movie and add some candles to your romantic night, battery operated of course. Send your spouse out on a cheeky errand, while you set up the hotel room with battery-operated candles, a bubble bath and have a song playing when they arrive back.
