Your hotel choice can say a lot about what you think of your guy or gal. For something more inspired than a run-of-the-mill rendezvous, try one of these: our ten hotels made for couples.

1.

Villa de l’O
Essaouira, Morocco — A romantic seaside setting, an in-house hammam to melt the stress away, large beds that beg to be rolled in — what more could you want? How about a gorgeous, oversized bathtub with a curtain to draw around it?

2.

Ponta dos Ganchos
Santa Catarina, Brazil — If a torch-lit dinner on Ponta dos Ganchos’ private island isn’t enough to impress your date, book one of the higher-end bungalows with its own plunge pool and, more to the point, its own wine cellar. What happens after that is between you two and the jacuzzi on your terrace.

3.

International House
New Orleans, Louisiana — Here’s a New Orleans twist on making the magic happen — book the International House’s “Sanctuary of Love” service and a real live voodoo priestess will conduct a love ceremony in your specially decorated room. To avoid bad mojo, be sure to give the hotel thirty days’ notice, along with the required fingernail clippings.

4.

Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain
Scottsdale, Arizona — The sleek spa casitas at this tranquil resort come with soaking tubs, lava rock fireplaces, plus champagne and rose-petal turndown service. And it’s all set against the dramatic sandstone cliffs of Camelback Mountain.

5.

Mosquito Beach Adult Hotel
Playa del Carmen, Mexico — Half of the hotel’s name is sexy, the other half not so much. Fortunately the scales are tipped in the right direction by a candlelit path to your dinner table on the beach, a private four-course meal with a dedicated chef and waiter, some sparkling wine to pick you up, and coffee at meal’s end to keep you awake after dinner.

6.

Torre di Moravola
Perugia, Italy — Dinner in a thousand-year-old hilltop watchtower overlooking the Umbrian countryside is romantic, but roaring fireplaces and enormous sunken baths are downright sexy. One wonders if the watchtower’s guards were ever allowed to have this much fun.
Book it →

7.

Algodon Mansion
Buenos Aires, Argentina — Fortunately your personal butler at the Algodon Mansion knows when to make an exit. You may need some privacy after a couples massage on the roof deck and a few glasses of Algodon wine in the hotel’s private cognac room.
Book it →

8.

The Pavilions
Phuket, Thailand — Sure, the “chill-out” and “make-out” playlists on your villa’s iPod are cute, but it’s the ‘all-over tan’ policy that makes The Pavilions a truly sexy hideaway — provided you choose the right company.
Book it →

9.

Casa del Horno
Panama City, Panama — After an in-room wine tasting curated by Casa del Horno’s sommelier, it’s not a bad idea to let one of the hotel’s private chauffeurs do the driving — thereby ensuring there’s no need to keep two hands on the wheel.
Book it →

10.

The Standard, High Line
New York, New York — The Standard, High Line’s Liberty Suite has a fully stocked wet bar, a round, seven-foot bed, and a tea-cup bathtub for two — not to mention some world-class people-watching from the full-length windows overlooking the High Line and the Meatpacking District.
