1. 50 Flavors of Romance
If you’re looking for something a little darker, head to the National Hotel on the beach for 50 shades of fun. Yes, with this package inspired by the 50 Shades films, couples can splurge and push the envelope this V-Day. (Contract included, of course.) Begin with a blindfolded dinner for two in the “dark” with 50 dish samples and the movie’s signature vanilla ice cream for dessert. Fifty strawberries served in different styles, 50 sips of champagne at the hotel’s Blues Bar, 50 roses in your hotel room, and, of course, a signed “contract” upon arrival agreeing that “what happens at the National stays at the National.” What to bring? Your very own Christian Grey.
It’s definitely a splurge to push the senses, starting at $795, but hey, it’s a night you won’t easily forget. Visit nationahalhotel.com.
