Top 5 Top 5 romantic getaways for couples

True love is something which is as pure as water from a white waterfalls. Many have tried to stopped true love but not have been successful as even god loves to flourish the real meaning on love on this planet Earth. So today I decided to post a content on some of the best romantic getaways for couples

Kauai, Hawaii

It’s the oldest of Hawaii’s eight main islands — and arguably the most dramatic, with scenery that ranges from wind-eroded mountains and red-walled canyons to primeval rainforest and photo-ready waterfalls. Share a succession of small plates (slow-braised short ribs; honeycomb with goat cheese) at the laid-back, open-air Bar Acuda in Hanalei. A six-hour hike with Chuck Blay of Kauai Nature Tours; you’ll learn the myths of every fruit and flower along the way.

Boracay, Philippines

Once a backpacking haven with only the most basic accommodations, this 5-mile-long island now rivals better-known Asian destinations such as Phuket and Koh Samui, Thailand. A 45-minute flight from Manila brings you to either Kalibo or Caticlan, where boats connect directly to White Beach, whose powdery sand may just be the softest in the world. A short tuk-tuk ride from the southern end of White Beach, Mandala Spa & Villas feels like a true retreat, with daily yoga classes and massages included in room rates, along with all the mangoes you can eat. The cliffside Pool Villa has the best vantage point over the Sulu Sea. Feast on Mediterranean mezes at Kasbah (Station One, White Beach), where pillow-strewn sofas evoke North Africa on the sand. Mandala Spa & Villas’ Hilot Trilogy, which incorporates an ancient Filipino form of massage.

The God’s own country is certainly one of the best romantic vacation getaways. Feel close to Nature and sail away in a house boat for an unforgettable experience.

You can explore and enjoy the thrilling adventurous getaways or enjoy a peaceful escape on a riverside

It is the best way to get close to the Mother Nature and quite adventurous to live with birds in a house that is built on leafy branches of a tree. The very idea sound interesting and cool. Such houses built on trees are called tree houses and anybody can be swept away by the magical beauty of these tree houses. Through this post I will try to bring into light some of the most stunning and beautiful tree houses all around the world.

This resort is situated in mountainous area.  The tree house here is best combination of luxury and comfort.  The tree house stands on the 300 years old tree. Moreover it is believed that this old tree has the pure aura which can purify the mind and heart of the person who stands close to it. All the basic amenities can be found on this tree house.

Free spirit spheres

The main idea behind this spirit was oneness. Unlike the other houses the floors, walls and ceilings of this house was one continuous space.  They can fit into the forests setting without any change required. They also make use of biomimicry.  The main foundation of this sphere is tree. Further it also very well depicts the connectedness of human to nature. This free spirit is freely hanging in air so it also reduces the possibility of any footprints. The shell of this is so strong that it can withstand any impact. Further the rope from which it is hanged allows it to move freely.

Minister’s tree house

This is in fact the largest tree house in the world. It is situated in town of Crossville and was built by Minister Horace Burgess in 1993. He got idea to build this house after seeing a dream in which God himself said to him that if he builds a tree house he will never fall short of any sort of material.  It took around 14 years to complete this tree house. Around 258,000 were used to build this tree house. This is a ten story tree house standing on six trees.

4tree house

It was designed by Lukasz Kos. He was of the idea to build a tree house which had minimum impact on the trees. With this idea he suspended two ton lattice frame around 20 feet above the floor of forest.  It is situated in Lake Muskoka in Ontario. The travelers can enter this tree house through rolling stairs.

Temple of the blue moon

This is one of the most amazing tree house. It is situated in Pete Nelson’s Tree house Point in Issaquah. However there are many tree house lodgings available there and this is just one among them.  It was built by Wash Nelson who was a very famous tree house builder. This provides a unique gateway to the visitors to connect with the nature.  This tree house is built on a 300 year old Sitka Spruce.
