Miami's Most Extravagant Valentine's Day Experiences
|We hear fast cars impress the ladies.|
Let's put the anti-Hallmark bullshit aside and be frank: Valentine's Day is all about wooing your significant other, and when money is no object, you can tug on those heartstrings with even mightier force. We're not talking about boxes of fancy chocolates or two dozen crimson roses. We're talking about chartering aircrafts, hiring private chefs, and other over-the-top ridiculousness.
Here's what Miami suitors willing to go to the ends of the Earth (or at least their pockets) for their gold-digging lovers are spending their money on this year.
Couples that spa together stay together. That's what the Mandarin Oriental claims, anyway. The hotel's doing its civic duty by lowering divorce rates with a romantic (read: pricey) spa treatment for two. The Couples Delight costs $720 per person, for two hours of pampering and muscle tension relief. Treatments take place side by side in a lush VIP couples' suite with waterfront views. Plus, the experience comes with a bottle of champagne and macarons, and everyone knows that macarons are like The Real Housewives; every girl loves 'em. $360 per hour -- that's reasonable, right?
Don't you just hate it when Miami traffic throws cold water on your romantic plans? There's one sure-fire way to avoid that fate: hire a private aircraft. Chartering a helicopter with Helicopters Over Miami for a one-hour sunset aerial tour of the city comes with a $700 price tag. Few things make the heart beat irregularly like a helicopter ride 6,000 feet above the ground. Just try to stay in the wooing mood, rather than geeking out on all the gadgets in the cockpit. Nothing kills a date faster than showing interest in another man's joystick.
