Off the shores of Marina del Rey, Calif., the Jamaica Bay Inn allows couples to enjoy the sweet escape of a Caribbean getaway without the flight or airfare. The Sweetheart’s Beach Retreat gives clients the break they need in the form of a one-night stay and play at a waterfront paradise. This Valentine’s Day package includes a Marina view room and is available from Feb. 12-15.
Clients are met upon arrival with a bottle of champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries in their room. For dinner, couples are served a seven-course chef’s dinner along with wine and cocktails. Late check-out is also included in the package, which is priced for $299.
Clients get wined and dined at Vu, the hotel’s acclaimed indoor-outdoor restaurant and bar that boasts spectacular views of the marina and is led by the rising chef Kyle Schutte. His Valentine’s Day menu features many adventurous courses that promise to bring passion back to any couple, including Kumamoto oysters, Samoan ahi and lobster tail crudo, bison carpaccio, king cole duck and a dark chocolate mousse for the finale.
