For all those lonely hearts that are desperate to escape this Valentine’s Day, help is at hand thanks to the UK’s top hotel comparison site Trivago.co.uk. With singles in mind, their recently published list of select hotels offers solo guests the chance to hide away from all that yucky, mushy romance stuff and get down to some serious, self-centered pampering.
Valentine’s Day might be great as far as lovers are concerned, but what about the rest of us? With all those lucky couples canoodling, kissing and flaunting their happiness, it’s not surprising that most singles will be looking to give them a wide berth come February the 14th.
Thanks to the Trivago.co.uk hotel search engine, who have come up with a list of the top six hotels for singles in the world, shutting the world out for the day becomes a serious prospect, one that Argophilia couldn’t wait to take a closer look at:
Here are the top six ‘singles hotels’ which received top ratings from travelers on Trivago.co.uk:
The Spires, Serviced Suites, Glasgow, Scotland
With its stylish 4-star rated serviced apartments, its great nightlife and variety of restaurants, The Spires Hotel in Glasgow makes for a great alternative this Valentine’s Day. Perfect for girlie get-togethers with its spacious rooms and luxury, The Spires is offering a special “Girl’s Night In” package of two nights, with one day of pampering, DVDs, pizza and breakfast all included in the price.
Aviva Single Resort & Spa, Sankt Stefan am Walde, Austria
Officially Europe’s first hotel designed to cater just for singles, the Aviva Single Resort & Spa is a natural choice in Trivago’s top six. With packages tailored according to each guest’s needs, there are few better havens to escape to this Valentine’s Day. Facilities include a single’s disco for those who love the nightlife, several sporting activities and a luxury 2000² M spa for those who just want to indulge.
Vigilius Mountain Resort, Lana, Italy
Despite its romantic-sounding setting in the Italian Alps, Vigilius Mountain Resort is nonetheless a great place to escape from Valentine’s Day. Oddly romantic, thanks to its unique architectural style (the resort is made entirely from wood), guests will find few intimate couples here as Vigilius is actually designed to be a respite from that, focusing on soul-searching and become one with the breath-taking natural landscape, its peacefulness and its serenity.
Grand Palladium Bavaro Resort & Spa, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Now here’s a good idea – why not get the hell out of here this Valentine’s Day and go hit some gorgeous beaches up instead? The Grand Palladium Bavaro Resort & Spa in the Dominican Republic is a great place to do just that. A five-star rated resort with all the luxury trappings one would expect, complete with an astounding beach, four swimming pools, water sports, diving and spa time – what more could you want on your lonesome?
Artemisia Frauenhotel, Berlin, Germany
Another great spot for single women who don’t need any more reminders of what they’re missing out on, the Artemisia Frauenhotel in Berlin is hard to beat if avoidance of male company is the goal. Men are banned from this hotel, meaning that its feminine guests get to relax and indulge themselves in Germany’s historical capital without having to fret about their make-up for once. Unless they plan on going outside, of course…
Hard Rock & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada
We’ve had two great destinations for the girls, so it’s only right that we come up with a great suggesting for all the lonely boys out there this Valentine’s Day. The Hard Rock & Casino in Las Vegas is just that – where else can guys forget about their lack of another half so easily than in the original Sin City? Let yourself go, party like an animal, lose money on the tables, flirt with the girls or just get wasted – everything is possible here, and then some!
