No time to plan a creative surprise or even travel out of town? These three hotspots should do the trick.
MÖVENPICK HERITAGE HOTEL SENTOSA
The exclusive 63 sqm Onsen Suite at Mövenpick Heritage Hotel Sentosa (five more onsen suites will be added by April, and an additional 13 by end 2012) features a private outdoor onsen that is attached to the room, and is equipped with a retractable canopy and mist cooling system for that unexpected drizzle or sunshine.
What’s on: Linkbridge Restaurant’s four-course dinner from 10 to 19 February includes Slow Cooked Beef Tenderloin with Pan-fried Foie Gras, Half Lobster with Crisp Bean Crumb, Mövenpick Swiss Chocolate Fondue, and a glass of Louis Roederer Champagne ($95 per person).

Walls in these 24 sq m rooms are painted completely black and wired with fibre-optic lights to create a realistic night sky illusion, and one can star-gaze in comfort as they enjoy clearer sights from the loft room’s upper deck.
What’s on: Savour French cuisine at Cocotte (prior reservations required) with a $200 dinner voucher and two glasses of sparkling wine when you opt for the Whimsical Loft Special Valentine’s Day package.

AMARA SANCTUARY RESORT SENTOSA

What’s on: The hotel’s Love Abounds package includes a glass of champagne and a four-course set dinner at Shutters Restaurant, which serves contemporary Asian and Western cuisine, a one-night’s stay and buffet breakfast for two. Available from 12 February to 19 February.
