It’s shades of red, hearts, flowers, chocolates everywhere we see- websites, social media, store displays, restaurant decors. The only obvious conclusion is that it’s about time we made Valentine’s Day plans. And the good news is that the Hotel Arts group has brought back its Valentine’s Day specials and they are lit AF.

Frankly, even without the offers, Hotel Arts and their sister property in Kensington were in the running for our Feb 14 plans. These indoor oases have, after all, been our go-to every time we needed to get away from the city chaos without having to get on a plane. 

Luxury accommodation, a relaxing spa, insane eats and a slew of indoor activities, they have everything to make your much needed exotic escape as relaxing as you can imagine. Now add to this their V-Day offers and it is straight-up perfection. Whether you’re making date-night plans or looking to enjoy a fun brunch with your gang, Hotel Arts and Hotel Arts Kensington have you covered all the way.

Below are three amazing ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day. We can’t make up our mind so we’ll leave that to you instead! 

A romantic one-night escape

It doesn’t matter how deep we are into the year, a night away from our daily shenanigans is always welcome. And Valentine’s Day gives us just the excuse we need, as does Hotel Arts and Hotel Arts Kensington’s Date Night Package. This includes a luxurious stay with an in-room gourmet dinner and of course, a bottle of red, white or bubbly. Talk about being pampered, eh? Luxury Rooms at Hotel Arts start at $349 and Luxury Suites at $399.

And if you are at Hotel Arts Kensington, the pampering continues in the morning. Their package also includes a delish Continental breakfast. 

A classic date

If you’re not there yet to spend a night away, worry not. Yellow Door Bistro at Hotel Arts and Oxbow restaurant at Hotel Arts Kensington have designed a special gourmet Valentine’s menu. This set menu comes with a curated selection of optional wine pairings. The menu at both restaurants will be different, so we suggest you check out each property’s offer before you make your reservations. FYI, these menus will be running from Feb 11 to Feb 14.

A Galentine’s Day brunch

As much as we love our partners, we absolutely have to celebrate with our support squad too. And because picking between bae and babes is never something we want to do, we have Galentine’s brunch. Lucky for us, Hotel Arts has a beautiful brunch menu too that they’ll be serving up over Valentine’s weekend  at the Yellow Door Bistro.
