Three Airbnbs to wow your significant other with a romantic getaway.

There is nothing more romantic than matching passport stamps. Traveling with a lover provides the perfect opportunity to face new challenges together, focus energy on nourishing each other and attend to your bond with no outside distractions. These global getaways help facilitate the process with secluded surroundings and indelible amenities.

The Moonrise Dome (South Africa)

Built into a treehouse and a geodesic dome, this property has no shortage of options for the couple looking to make the most out of their trip to Western Cape, where breathtaking night skies can help reignite old passions. An outdoor bathtub further invites a flirtatious dynamic into the walled back garden. A short walk away, a pond with an overwater pathway leading to a gazebo provides the perfect platform for contemplation, reflection and simply taking it all in.

Light streams through the colored window panes landing on the deep wood of the open floor layout of this fairytale bungalow. Ornately carved details, a porch overlooking scenic rice paddies and a mystical garden with an infinity pool tie together everything about this elegant, intimate stop. Nearby beaches, tropical birds, and troupes of monkeys add the finishing touches that make this destination the perfect place to connect and enjoy discovering the beauty of nature with your other half.
