A resort or hotel is as romantic as you make it. Naples, Florida, gives you the best raw materials to work with as you create romance on your twosome steal-away. Of course there are the westward facing beaches with their promise of afterglow sunsets and long sandy walks hand in hand. LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort boasts one of Naples’ sexiest beaches with the added bonus of a romantic beachside restaurant lit by torches and a bonfire.
Away from the beach, you are more likely to find intimate boutique resorts where you can settle into your love nest or get out and explore the city, nature or a golf course. Suave Inn on Fifth in downtown Naples appeals to sophisticates who enjoy being in the midst of supreme shopping, divine dining and bustling nightlife.
This lists covers romantic gems in Naples and Marco Island, where amenities such as spas and fine dining are the icing on the romance vacation cake. Some occupy historic digs, which adds another dimension to the romance formula. Whether historic or new, the architecture at many of the properties can sweep you off on a European style adventure with a range from castle-like to a hidden garden enclave.
