Playa Largo Resort & Spa | Key Largo, Florida

Galentines Day Playa Largo

Grab your girls and hit the road down to Playa Largo Resort & Spa in Key Largo, FL – just an hour’s drive from Miami but a world away! The resort’s gorgeous island setting offers the beauty of a Caribbean escape without anyone needing a passport.

Situated along 14 acres of the Florida Bay, Playa Largo has all of the makings for an unforgettable beachfront getaway for you and your besties. The resort features 178 luxury rooms and suites, but it’s the ten private bungalows, ocean residences, and a three-bedroom beach house complete with a private pool that provides the perfect options so you can truly let your hair down and enjoy your bonding time.

When you’re not busy soaking up the sun in the beachfront pool or dipping into the clear waters of the Florida Bay, grab one of the complimentary bikes and go for a leisurely ride or indulge in a treatment at the coastal-inspired spa.

Better yet, order up the “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’ amenity and have calming facial masks, invigorating salt scrubs, a choice of wine or champagne, decadent chocolates, and luxurious sleep masks—all thoughtfully packaged and delivered to your room! Or opt to up your pregame style with an onsite cocktail-making class, where you can learn to make some of the resort’s signature boozy beverages. 

Southernmost Beach Resort | Key West, Florida

A little further down the Overseas Highway in the Florida Keys and situated along the southern limit of the famed Duval Street, the recently renovated Southernmost Beach Resort features a modern, sleek design, classic coastal charm and unparalleled ocean views, perfect for a relaxing and unforgettable girls getaway in Key West.

There’s no shortage of fun happenings or pastimes in Old Town Key West for a Galentines Day celebration – whether you’re in the mood to paint the town or relax and reconnect. Boasting three palm-fringed pools, a private beach with lounge chairs and cabanas, a signature restaurant and two bars, this oceanfront resort will leave you longing to stay.

You and the girls can enjoy water activities like snorkelling, eco-tours, kayaking and paddle boarding just steps from the resort, or grab an onsite bicycle and explore the island’s nearby boutiques, museums, and art galleries. Treat yourself to a beachfront spa treatment, yoga class or a chill sunset picnic with your gals.

Or turn things up with daily poolside live music, cocktail tastings, weekly trivia nights, or bar hopping down Duval Street while singing at the top of your lungs. Either way, Southernmost Beach Resort serves as the ultimate gateway to all Key West has to offer.

JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa, Mexico

Galentines Day in Cancun

With quick & affordable direct flights from almost every major US city on the eastern and southern seaboard, it’s no surprise that Cancun is a coveted vacation destination for a girls’ Galentine Day getaway.

With IG-worthy ocean views and easy access to the Yucatan’s most amazing sights – from the ruins of Chiten Itza, to the cenotes of Tulum – Cancun is a popular destination for travellers who need an escape from reality.

Just minutes from the heart of Cancun’s nightlife is the JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa. Girl groups can lounge in a private poolside cabana, enjoy brunch baskets and chilled Moet by the turquoise ocean waters, or shake things up with unique twists on classic cocktails with its signature 150 Margaritas Menu (featuring classic, modern, fusion, and exotic varieties).

Before girlfriend groups spend a night out at local congas and Miami-style nightclubs, the party starts at the resort’s weekly Mexican Buffet Dinners, featuring authentic regional dishes and a live mariachi band.

Marriott Puerto Vallarta |  Puerto Vallarta, Mexico 

Galentines Day at the Marriott

Nestled on a sandy strip between the Sierra Madre Mountains and Banderas Bay lies Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa, where girl gangs can expect tropical weather and fun year-round. Whether gal pals are looking for a cultural experience or a beachfront escape, Marriott Puerto Vallarta offers 433 Jalisco-inspired rooms and suites and is ideal for an unforgettable trip with friends.

When the girls are not out exploring the coast, they can take part in a tequila tasting led by the resort’s resident tequila sommelier, unwind at the Ohtli Spa, or take a dip in Puerto Vallarta’s largest infinity pool, which offers a two-story swim-up bar with a full 180-degree view of Banderas Bay.

Onsite activities range from paddle boarding at sunrise to seasonally releasing baby sea turtles at sunset through the resort’s conservation program.

Quintessence Hotel | Anguilla 

Quintessence Hotel beach

For the ultimate Galentines Day girl’s trip, why not book a luxurious mansion on one of the Caribbean’s most picturesque islands? Affectionately nicknamed the “Tropical Grand Mansion,” Quintessence Anguilla, is the perfect getaway for you and your besties.

The 12-suite hotel features all the amenities of a five-star full-service resort with a private-villa-like feel. When your group isn’t basking in the sun, relax with a swim in crystalline waters on the secluded Long Bay Beach. Capture that picture-perfect selfie on the perfectly manicured lawn and botanic garden.

Relax and rejuvenate at The Aidan Spa with featured products by the renowned Tammy Fender, or have a day of adventure exploring Anguilla with a cute and colourful Moke rental. They come in a variety of shades that match your favourite bikini. Top it off with a wine night at Q’s award-winning Tuscan wine cellar or sip on some bubbly from its soon-to-debut Champagne tasting cave while you peruse the signature Q art gallery.

With private butlers catering to your every whim, unparalleled ocean views, and marble bathrooms that will make you feel like a queen while getting ready. This is truly the ultimate girls’ trip to unwind and luxuriate…in style. 

Willemstad, Curaçao


When the girls are in need of a little R&R this Galentines Day, look no further than Willemstad, a vibrant and bustling city in the heart of Curaçao. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is the capital of Curaçao, a Dutch Caribbean island with more than 35 cove-like beaches, magnificent clear-blue waters, and unique colonial architecture.

Thanks to its colourful pastel buildings and iconic Handleskade backdrop, Willemstad feels like a slice of Europe in the Caribbean and will give Galentines Day #squadgoals a whole new meaning when your friends take a signature photo on the swinging Queen Emma Bridge.

Girl groups can get lost in the city’s beauty, explore Pietermaai (the trendy area similar to Miami’s Wynwood), pop into Serena’s Art Factory (home of the famous ChiChi dolls), grab a bite to eat at an old governor’s mansion, shop along the old cobblestone streets and party with live Caribbean entertainment – all working together to create the perfect setting for an unforgettable getaway.

For a touch of adventure, take a day trip to the untouched Klein Curaçao by helicopter or a private boat charter. Sitting eight miles off the southeast coast of the main island, the uninhabited island is a true slice of paradise, boasting one of the longest and most pristine beaches.

Or explore other hidden coves and beaches via jet ski hopping or seabob tours. For those looking to explore their artsy side, take a sip and spill group painting class at local artist Francis Sling’s art cave. And for the ultimate girl’s night out, head to Papagayo Beach Club, an island nightlife hotspot featuring sleek lounge areas and a live DJ. Adventure awaits in this vibrant and distinct destination. 

Resorts World Bimini | Bimini, The Bahamas

Just a quick 25-minute flight or a 2-hour ferry ride from Fort Lauderdale, Bimini makes for a seamless getaway for the Galentines Day girl’s trip that makes it out of the group chat. Home to Resorts World Bimini, an oceanfront complex that encompasses a chic Hilton hotel, a world-class casino, and a newly opened beach, the girls will have a perfect balance of fun and relaxation.

The seven-mile island is surrounded by turquoise waters best seen from the adults-only rooftop infinity pool, where the panoramic views will set as the ultimate insta-worthy backdrop. For an exclusive experience, indulge in a beachside cabana at Resorts World Bimini Beach, a 4.5-acre private beach and lounge that blends laidback luxury with unrivalled ocean backdrops and vibes similar to beach clubs found in Mykonos or Tulum.

Enjoy live music and premiere service all day long. At night, treat yourselves to a delicious dinner at The Sushi Bar, and then hop in a golf cart and go for an island-wide bar crawl. Resorts World Bimini may even become the yearly girls’ getaway spot!

The prime location also puts you just steps away from the beach, where you can relax on the sand or unwind with a morning yoga class to get zen in the morning. For the adventurous girl group, you’ll find hiking trails through lush tropical forests and opportunities for kayaking, snorkelling, and even helicopter tours of the island. Explore the Garden Isle and experience the ultimate tropical vacation and girl getaway at the Sheraton Kauai Coconut Beach Resort.

Plenty of Fish in This Sea | Bonaire

Grab your gals and catch a flight (not feelings) to the Dutch Caribbean Island of Bonaire. Known as the mecca of shore diving and the world’s first Blue Destination, Bonaire is paradise for snorkelling and scuba diving with over 85 dive sites scattered across the island boasting over 350 species of fish and 57 types of coral.

Girl groups can learn a new skill together and channel their inner mermaids with a freediving lesson at Deep Sea Bonaire, teaching everything from how to dolphin kick, swim with a monofin or tail, and practice your first mermaid tricks, strokes, and poses.

The island also offers numerous snorkel tours and PADI discovery dives for the beginner mermaids. Once you are fully confident in your mermaiding abilities, hop on a boat to Klein Bonaire (“Little Bonaire”), an uninhabited island just shy of a mile off Bonaire’s coast and jump right in. Here, mermaids can spot angelfish, parrotfish and sergeant majors hanging out by the reefs.
