An intimate jungle staycation: RIMBA Jimbaran BALI by AYANA

What’s a romantic escape without a charming accommodation? This is the most fundamental part of your “just the two of us” vacation.

The RIMBA Jimbaran BALI masters the art of introducing voguish design by sustaining the aesthetics of the Balinese authenticity at its finest. Nothing slips out of dreamy elegance at the resort- starting from its interior décor to its lovely room views.

Without a doubt, you should bookmark (or simply book) the Hillside Room. The bathtub caters to your slow, romantic nights so you can both soak in as a treat.

Sure, the resort boasts of a panoramic setting, fabulous dining options, 12 stunning swimming pools and a private beach, but one favourite feature of this particular room is the bed view.

After an array of bubbles and a languishing dip later, slide in on your crisp linen, under your warm duvet and in your lover’s arms you’ll dream away overlooking inspiring views of the resort’s endless forest canopy.

Aside from these, RIMBA Jimbaran also features signature romantic dining experiences, priority access to the renowned Rock Bar, and a series of additional services curated for any of your special occasions. Just ask and it will be done.

Bonus point: dimmed romantic lighting, lace of candlelight on the walls and much more. Nothing quite compares to relaxing with your special someone somewhere that offers panoramic views while you unwind with a special couple treatment.

True to its natural setting, Tjampuhan spa is dedicated to the healing properties of water, and has sourced a collection of traditional Balinese healing and beauty treatments in a setting that evokes the inner peace and overall wellness of an intimate connection with Mother Nature.

5. 500 Feet-high clifftop bar with a glass-bottomed infinity pool – One Eighty

What’s bringing clifftop infinity pools to a different level?

Photo Via Aaronraja

A crystal blue glass-bottomed infinity pool overlooking the Indian Ocean, that stretches all the way out from the cliff 500 feet high, creating a gravity-defying concrete-encased lagoon with a million-dollar view – the highlight of One Eighty, a new sophisticated bar and restaurant that’s a recent addition to The Edge Villas at Uluwatu.

Photo Via Timothysykes

Before you know it, you’ll be floating in mid-air with the sweeping waves crashing beneath you.

Photo Via Mariowilltakeyouto-aaronraja

The pool is not the only gorgeous thing about  One Eighty. The menu is also superbly designed by Bali’s own Chef Nyoman – the globetrotting chef who is the mastermind behind Seminyak’s famous Bambu Restaurant, well-known for its Indonesian cuisine.

Inspired by the same opulence and luxury of The Edge’s beach culture, One Eighty brings you the amazing sensation of perched on the very edge of the world.

Expect a classic beachside food selection such as Deluxe Shrimp Po’boy with a side of salmon roe, tabasco, fries and more, Giant Papuan Prawns drenched in kemangi butter, Baby Back Ribs soaked in rosemary honey butter with coleslaw, and Baja Fish Tacos.

So chill in the VIP deck and order up a watermelon cooler or other cocktails for the summer. There’s also a high tea menu for your clifftop oasis enjoyment. Just know that everything is going to be served with a view here!

Photo Via I Dream Of Bali

Metis has a superb view of paddy fields and its magic begins its work before you even take a seat for dinner – with a whimsical path leading into the restaurant through pretty gardens with large lotus ponds.

Photo Via Rosanna Faraci

Foie gras enthusiasts will love Metis for this reason alone: it has a fantastic foie gras centric menu. Foie gras terrine, crispy foie gras, yellow fin tuna sushi roll and pan seared foie gras. We’d carry on but we don’t want your keyboard to get wet.

7. Together, hike up to greater heights: Mende Hill

If you and your partner don’t have a lot in common, it’s time to share interest in a great hobby that could suit you both.

Greater views come after the hardest climb; relationship-wise too!

Photo Via Juni_artana

Fill your couple life with adventures, get out of your comfort zone, wander where the Wi-Fi is weak but where the connection between you both is the strongest!

As we all know, a relationship is like a hike up a mountain, it needs courage, strength and helping hands from both sides.

We’ve got this on the list as it is one of the most lesser-known hiking spots in Bali, which also means no crowd and privacy assured.

Photo Via Yudhisastra

The hike is relatively easy but oh-so-totally worth it and scenic!  The way up the hill might sometimes be challenging, but what can be better than giving each other mental and physical support? Who knows, you might both fall in love with hiking!

Photo Via M4ndr4k

P.S. Girls, relax – it’s totally fine to be dirty and smelly around your partner… sometimes! They say doing sports together can bond couples together!

8. Find refuge with a quiet forest view at the Kamandalu Swing

What better way to escape from the busy city life than to perch yourselves atop a swing in the middle of Bali’s lush greenery?

Photo Via Andienaisyah

You probably wouldn’t mind spending the day lazing on the comfy swing and cuddling with your sweetheart. You can simply relax in your lover’s arms to the sound of nature and fresh mountain breeze.

Photo Via Nala_rinaldo,Leonardsitorus

To get exclusive access to this incredible swing, all you need is to go for a lovely treatment at the Forest Spa. Serene Escape, Heavenly Touch – the spa packages speak for themselves.

Photo Via devinasalim

Disclaimer (for the super romantics only): Kamandalu is much more romantic than just its swing; you might want to surprise your lover with a magical picnic aboard a rowing boat, as though you were in Venice!

Photo Via Andienaisyah

Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream… Indeed, life as a couple is but a dream!

9. Take a romantic stroll among the blessed marigolds: Desa Temukus

Note: These marigold fields are currently out of bounds for visitors due to the recent Mount Agung eruption. Just keep this magical place on your list when you next travel to Bali!

Some of you might envision your ideal date as a leisurely walk on one of Bali’s best beaches, sipping mojitos by an infinity pool, but we think there’s nothing more romantic than strolling in a beautiful field of Marigold. Indeed, the most memorable moments are the most silent and serene ones.

When a bouquet is not enough; you offer a whole field of flowers!

Marigold flower has a very prominent significance to the Balinese culture (with regards to its Indian origin). In fact, the flower is often associated with the sun due to its vibrant orange and yellow colour.

Time to remind your lover that they’re that one person who makes your day brighter!

Marigolds are symbols of passion and creativity – often used as love charms depicting the beauty of marriage and a sign of fresh beginning for newly married couples.

Bali break-up curse? Put this aside and think twice; this beautiful flower plantation will prove you wrong as you stroll around hand-in-hand with your lover. Take a walk and spend quality time enjoying what nature has to offer to you both – complete aesthetic visuals and tranquility guaranteed.

Photo Via Ynp_photography,Monikaa_moo

It is indeed the perfect timing to pop the question!

With its stunningly colorful orange flowers, it is hands-down the best spot for couple selfies with Mount Agung as backdrop too.

Photo Via Liasalikhah

Along the way, you can also stop by the nearby Kasna flower field and relish in the peaceful white ambience of glory and its beautiful scenery.

Both Marigold and Kasna flowers are used as a sign of worship in Bali and are believed to be blessed.

Indulge in cute Instagrammable desserts and cafés

Dessert and romance – we like to believe that these are two basic human needs, or shall we say, life’s little pleasures especially for a couple!

When it comes to romantic meals for two, you should always strive to impress, so here are charming cafés that will make your loved one fall head over heels in love with you again (if he/she isn’t already!).

14. Unicorns are real (and edible) – Cloud Cakes

Nothing gets more magical than unicorns, and nothing gets prettier than unicorns at Cloud Cakes – a dessert and snack stall at Denpasar.

This unicorn-themed establishment has a unicorn in its logo, and works hard to live up to it – many of their pastries feature that elusive animal.

Photo Via Ramapradiptaa,Rayvaldi12

Not only do they have a unicorn cake (with a cone for a horn), there’s also a special drink that includes a paper unicorn peeking out from a cloud of candy floss.

That’s not all they have to offer though. Cloud Cakes also makes a series of pastel-coloured pastries, including rainbow cakes, donuts, and even shaved ice!

Photo Via Tanialitadevi

Just looking at the pictures alone are enough to give us a toothache – so we completely understand if you’re a manly man, and don’t appreciate beautiful horses with horns on their heads.

But can you resist the Grilled Cheese Sandwich that is grilled to perfection, and can you reject these golden brown fried oreos – that both have a unicorn printed on their packagings?

You can run, but you can’t hide from the unicorn at Cloud Cakes… and we don’t want to anyway.

Cloud Cakes, Denpasar

This is also the ideal place to retreat and relax with a book in a quiet corner.

This quirky little place also has a funky dessert.

Admit it – an Instagram cake is just the very thing your Instagram page desperately needs.

This sweet treat is not just pleasurable to your eyes, but under the marzipan layer, delicious mouth-watering brownie awaits.

And here’s another extraordinary piece of cake.

No, this is not a jar of Nutella, but a Nutella cake! Where else in the world can you can devour the entire Nutella and not feel (too) guilty about it?

If you feel like trying out something crazier, Livingstone cafe has baked for you some funky-looking watermelon bread.

17. Spend the sunset on the edge of a towering cliff – Melasti Beach, Ungasan

One of the most charming white sand beaches on the southern coast of the Island of the Gods, Melasti Beach Ungasan is usually frequented by couples taking their pre-wedding photoshoot, who want to capture the beautiful formation of rock and limestone walls that surround the winding roads here.

Photo Via Mrs.lipanda
Photo Via Arichrysalis

These cliffs go up to as high as 100 to 150 metres!

The impressive height of the cliffs makes this place a contender for the position of the best sunset spot in Bali. Every evening, be prepared to be lulled by the beautiful sunset views from the majestic cliff tops and even from the sandy shores.

There’s even small caves where you can take unique photos in!

Note: this Melasti Beach is located in the Ungasan area, and it’s not the beach with the same name near Tanah Lot!

18. Mount Batur’s Volcanic Landscape, viewed from Pinggan village

Mount Batur (1,717m) is the most visited volcano in Bali, but most visitors usually join the tourist hordes at Kintamani village for views of the majestic fire-breather.

For a view of Batur that’s arguably more spectacular, we suggest you head to the more isolated village of Pinggan.

Photo Via Mikevisuals

Here you can experience the fierce splendour of the active volcano in a more solitary, meditative setting.

Photo Via Gilgalandika

Batur is at its most photogenic at sunrise and sunset, and even makes for impressive night photography – with the lights of Pinggan village spread out at the foot of the mountain, and a sky full of stars twinkling above the peak.

Pinggan village

Getting There: Most Mount Batur tours don’t stop at Pinggan village (which is why it makes it so gloriously uncrowded), so you’re best getting there on your own steam. Ubud is the nearest major tourist hub and Pinggan is about 45km, or an hour’s drive away. Coordinate here

Savour romantic afternoon tea time

Tip #1 to winning your lover’s heart: Take afternoon tea time very seriously while on vacation.

These places master the art of romantic tea time experiences, where tea and honey rhyme just like your hands and his/hers do.

You’ll envy the cup of tea that gets to kiss your partner’s lips but who knows, you might definitely be their cup of tea or even better – their hot-tea!

19. Enjoy tea like the British do it – Standing Stones Restaurant at The Royal Purnama

The Royal Purnama’s Standing Stones Restaurant stands out amongst many other dining establishments in Bali, for one simple reason.

Look at those magnificent stones standing against the perfect backdrop of black sand and deep blue waters.

Photo Via Zie_sw

Now take away the sand and waters, and there you have it – you’re at Stonehenge in England! Uh, not really, but since you’re at (what really looks like) the Brits’ homebase, how could you not indulge in some classic British teatime action?

Photo Via Switly_enjel_lasut

Sit back on the grassy plains and sip at your tea in the sunshine, or dine inside the comfort of the restaurant – it’s your pick. But wherever you choose to go, the views won’t disappoint.

Neither will your tea party friends, namely the selection of eight Femmes Dammann French loose leaf teas, including Standing Stone’s signature Earl Grey Blend.

Freshly made pastries, cakes and biscuits are all presented on a classy tiered tray to top off your authentic high tea experience!

Photo Via Donikris89

And if you’d like to work off those calories after consuming a mountain of cakes, simply pay an additional fee of Rp. 350,000 (USD $26.50) to lounge on the gazebo or swim in the pool right beside the restaurant.

You know what, this might even be better than really going to Stonehenge.

21. Giant swing over the treetops and the water: Puncak Danau Buyan Wanagiri, Bedugul

22. The latest treehouse (not meant for those with a fear of heights!): Rumah Pohon Batu Molenteng

Located right smack on Nusa Penida and looking out at Atuh Beach – this beautiful treehouse is the latest unique addition to the island, providing stunning sights of the dramatic Balinese landscape.

Once you’re up in the treehouse and looking out, you’ll be able to see glorious, glorious sights. From the pretty Atuh Beach and small surrounding islands like Raja Ampat in Papua, to the many cliffs, ravines and hills that paint Bali’s landscape – it’s a sight not to miss!

Thankfully, the treehouse was built with a ladder, so you don’t have to literally climb the tree just to get to the treehouse! Just bring a picnic along and make it a stunning memory atop a tree, complete with crazy views and delicious food!

How’s this for an Instagrammable moment?

Price: Rp.5000 (USD $.030) per entry, Rp.5000 parking fees
Address: Banjar Pelilit, Desa Pejukutan, Nusa Penida

Shop for souvenirs, adorable homeware and more!

As the legend goes, Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.  Just like shopping in Bali may be on her list but surfing may be on his, remember that a couple that shops together stays together? (Says any lady out there!)

Relax, we’re not talking about ring shopping (but why not?).

Going on vacation together calls for some great souvenir shopping, be it for your friends, relatives or for the both of you to create the best post-holiday memories. Get your hands on some exceptional artsy items at these lesser-known locations!

23. Trendiest bazaar in Bali’s hipster district – Love Anchor

Canggu is hipster enough and you know it.

If you walk along Jalan Batu Balong after the sun sets, you can’t miss this exciting Instagrammable market made up of a complex of restaurants, bars and shops, decorated with dreamy fairy lights and illuminated with a cheery vibe as the crowd pours in for their after-dinner drinks.

And on Sundays, the area is transformed into the most happening bazaar with pop-up stalls.

Photo Via Outofhersuitcase-mel_

Here, you can find trendy and whimsical island fashion, accessories, homeware, dreamcatchers, trinkets and even old school artwork. And if you keep an eye out enough, you can even discover some hidden gems for your kids.

Or if you are here for a drink, don’t miss the daily Happy Hour!

Photo Via Ayoubejallali-letsgrowthere

One tip from us – although this is one of Canggu’s most photogenic markets, the shopping here may be a little overpriced, but it’s worth a look (and many snaps!) if you haven’t been to Bali’s weekend bazaars before!

Love Anchor

Address: Jalan Batu Bolong, opposite Deus Ex Machina. Coordinates here.
Opening Hours: 9am to 10pm (daily)
Happy Hour: Daily 6pm to 7pm – Buy one get one free for all classic and signature cocktails

24. Stop and smell the roses – Rose Avenue Bali

You don’t have to like floral prints and roses to want to visit Rose Avenue. Known for its rose-laden facade (and we’re talking about a wall full of red and pink roses), Rose Avenue offers beautiful homeware items from a pineapple shaped bottle opener to rattan swings.

So if you’re new in Bali and are shopping for home items, drop by this store and simply be stunned by everything.

Want to take a sweet Instagram selfie with a bed of roses as your backdrop? You’ll be able to do that if you visit Rose Avenue.

Photo Via Angelagilsha

Another thing to note? Their paper bags have “Stop and smell the roses” written all over them. And why wouldn’t you? If you aren’t drawn by this unique facade, we don’t know what else will. Shopping will literally be a walk in the park.

If you think that pastel is the only color palette Rose Avenue has. You’re wrong. They have neon colors, as seen in their flamingo coat/towel hook – and in the apples, pineapples, and other tropical fruits that can be used as decorations or paper holders.

You can even get design inspiration through their dining table set-up, or pick through the different types of dinnerware, placemats, table cloths, and anything you fancy.

Even if you’re just looking for one eccentric piece, such as a rattan swing, or a bright pink chair that opens up like a flower – you’ll definitely be in the right place.

Rose Avenue Bali

Price: $2.50 to $300
Address: No. 44B, Jalan kayu Aya, Seminyak, Bali 80361

Opening Hours: 9am to 10pm


25. Everything beautiful, as far as the eye can see – Sukawati Art Market

When we were here, we were blown away by the sheer size of Sukawati Art Market.

Walking around Sukawati Art Market can be a little tricky in the sense that it may feel like a maze. But if you’re out to discover really unique things in the hidden shops off the alleys, then you’re in for a ride.

Here, you will find an extensive range of items. Handmade bags, wooden ethnic bowls, crockery, those popular comfortable batik pants, dresses, and insanely gorgeous shell items. (2-3 times cheaper than Ubud central)

Of course, if you’re on the hunt for some art to bring home, there are many shops with paintings available, and wooden sculptures too!

Be warned though, you will find plenty of similar paintings of the mass produced variety. However, if you do spend a little more time (and dedication) going through the shops and their paintings, you are bound to find something unique that will sit pretty in your home.

Tip: If you intend to explore the market fully, make sure to set at least half a day aside for this!

Sukawati Art Market

Price: From $2
Address: Jl Raya Sukawati, Bali, Indonesia
Opening hours: 8am to 7pm daily

Fancy a dreamy stay in a villa with magical views

Nothing will make eyes sparkle like love words. Well, wait, a villa with a view can do that too.

Yes it might be a little kitsch but the idea of staying in a private villa when in Bali will make you both melt.

We’re taking a risk but we think it’s safe enough to say that you’ll be obsessed by the view; so obsessed that you’ll probably go “♫ You’re just too good to be true, I can’t take my eyes off you, You’d be like heaven to touch, I wanna hold you so much …♫”

26. Your very own slice of Santorini in Bali – Morabito Art Cliff (From USD $377)

The latest find we’re obsessing over, Morabito Art Cliff is here with their very own version of Santorini.

Photo Via Emelinaah

Yes, there’s no need to pay a hefty price for a flight to Greece – all you have to do is head to Bali for a taste of Greece’s famed island!

Laze the day away in a jacuzzi tub facing the sapphire oceans by day, and by night enjoy the cool tropical ocean breeze in the LED-lit tub.

Great for couples who’re longing to truly get away, Morabito Art Cliff indulges your senses in every way.

27. Touch the clouds: Munduk Moding Plantation

Have you always dreamed of reaching out to touch the sky?

It’s no longer impossible.

At the edge of the 18-metre-long infinity pool at the Munduk Moding Plantation, you can almost feel heaven at your fingertips.

Photo Via Infinityswimmingpools.co_.uk_

Spread out in front of you is a sea of cloud, that partially shields the surrounding coffee plantation from your sight.

This magic extends beyond its signature view.

Designed by an award-winning Bali architect Popo Danes, the traditional Balinese interior has been dabbed with a blend of modernism in this secluded resort that only has nine villas and three suites.

From your room, you can open the glass panel doors to take in the breathtaking view of the coffee plantation nestled in the lush foliage of the jungle.

What better place to spend some quiet and romantic moments with your loved one?

28. Eat, Pray and LOVE more: Tegallalang Rice Terraces

You’ve heard it before – it might sound a little cliché but Tegalalang Rice Terraces portray one of the most romantic sceneries in Bali.

This beautiful spot located in Ubud is the ideal place for the both of you to get lost in the splendour of Bali. The scenery gets magical on a clear morning when the sun beams its way through the coconut trees and gives an orange lure to the atmosphere.

You know it; time to pull out your camera and snap some Instragram-worthy pictures for some ultimate #couplegoals posts.

As you stroll around the terraces, find yourself tranquil spots for a hearty chat, a quick kiss and a couple wish.

29. Get warm and cozy in nature with a cup of organic coffee: Basanta Agro Organic

All the both of you need today is a little bit of coffee and a whole lot of love!

As a couple, you should be looking out for new experiences where the both of you can learn something out of the ordinary; something connecting you to the local culture.

The tour at Basanta Agro Organic takes you and your partner through the whole coffee production process, starting with a walk in the coffee plantation, to coffee roasting and tasting seven different types of traditional Balinese roasted coffee.

Romantic escape to these secluded beaches

Bali’s tropical ambience is exceptional for a romantic getaway, but it can get a little tricky to find isolated places that are off the tourist track, just for you and your babe.

Lesser-known beaches are the answers to your call!

Every moment spent at these sandy stretches is a constant reminder that Bali is a couple’s ideal romantic destination.

30. Virgin Sands – Nyang Nyang Beach

Care for a beach all to yourself? That’s Nyang Nyang for you!

The white pristine sands of the beach are lined by a towering green cliff, which keeps it away from prying eyes. If you are quite the explorer and looking for some solitude, this secluded beach in Southern Bali is perfect for a little adventure.

Photo Via Alinastepanova214

To get to the beach, you need to follow a dirt track close to Uluwatu Temple and keep a lookout for a sign saying “Nyang Nyang Surfing Beach”.

Next, you cross a field where you will find a drinks stall (the only one in the area as the beach is devoid of all shops and stalls also) before alighting the 500 flights of steps that finally open up to the beach.

So yes, getting there might be an adventure in itself, but we’d say it’s definitely worth the effort.

Especially with the parts of an abandoned vessel laying around the beach – perfect for a photo-op, or even a quaint little exploration.

And if you’re looking for more photo-ops, you definitely have to check out the secret wild garden by the beach – it’s blooming with a plethora of sunshine flowers that’ll provide an amazing backdrop with a cheerful pop of yellow!

Nyang Nyang Beach

Directions: Take a car or bike to Jalan Uluwatu, and look for a sign that reads “Nyang Nyang Surfing Beach”. Park, then make the rest of the journey by foot to the beach!
Address: Nyang Nyang Beach, Jl. Raya Uluwatu, Uluwatu, Bali. Coordinates here

31. Panoramic Views – Gunung Payung Beach

Gunung Payung is not only a hidden paradise, but is also (thankfully) quite accessible for being one.

Photo Via Teodorasabau,Nesiines

Just an hour’s drive away from Denpasar City, located at Nusa Dua – one can follow a marker road to reach here. Once here, get treated to panoramic views of the ocean right to the horizon!

The beach is clean and perfect for trying out some yoga. You can also engage in various activities like surfing and snorkeling – or more culturally interesting ones like getting a glimpse of the local ways of life.

Watch the seaweed farmers and sea urchin collectors go about their daily chores, and strike up a conversation or two, just to learn more about what they do. Who knows, you might just be able to sample seaweed or sea urchin thanks to your new friendship. ?

Gunung Payung Beach

Directions: The beach is located to the east of the famous Pandawa Beach, so one can easily ask locals around the area how to get there. Alternatively, you can try looking for the Gunung Payung Temple. But be prepared for some serious stair climbing (300 steps)!
Address: Jalan Gunung Umbrella 1, Nusa Dua, South Kuta, Badung regency, Bali, Indonesia. Coordinates here

Find seclusion and adventure in West Bali

If you’ve travelled to Bali and are tired of the commercialised south, and have explored central and north Bali, why not head west for a very different romantic experience?

Coupling your travels with some off-the-beaten track adventures could be the ultimate means to re-ignite your spark with some good level of excitement.

Oh yes, romance and adventure just go together, particularly when it’s in the west of Bali.

32. When ocean, wild nature and comfort meet: The Octagon Ocean Club by Plataran Menjangan

In the midst of wild nature, you’ll find a large resort hidden in the jungle of West Bali National Park.

Nestled by the beach, the Plataran Menjangan Resort and Spa, an immense Mediterranean-style resort boasts of an iconic three-storey-high Octagon Ocean Club that overlooks the ocean and Menjangan Island, as far as the eyes can see. As the name suggests, the club is shaped like an octagon to capture 360-degree views of the national park and the ocean.

You can’t miss the 33-metre-long oceanfront infinity pool that fronts the ocean club – the perfect place to chill and enjoy sunset cocktails!

Here, you’ll get a mix of unique dining experience – fresh seafood, Asian and international cuisine with cultural performances – and an encounter with the wild nature of West Bali. Encompassing a dense biodiversity from mangroves and lowland rain forests, to savannas and seagrass landscapes, as well as deep-sea waters with sandy beaches and coral reefs, you can experience the untouched and preserved ecosystem in a deluxe set-up.

If you are here with your partner, you will love the wooden deck, where you can enjoy some privacy.

As you walk along the beach, you may even come across the park’s protected deers. Isn’t that just lovely?

33. A view from the very top: Bali Tower Restaurant (Prices start at USD 30 for two)

Romance will find you at the Bali Tower Restaurant, located on an open-air platform on a tower that soars over the forest cover.

Photo Via Fitrifazrachman

The restaurant is part of the lovely Menjangan resort, which is in the Bali Barat National Park.

As this is home to myriad wildlife, some endangered, you may come across deer (otherwise known as menjangan) and various birds along the way.

Surrounded by leaves and bathed in sunlight, you can gaze at mountains, valleys and beaches from on high – it will definitely be a Valentine’s Day to remember.
