No, the True Romance package at Velassaru resort is not another laboured movie tie-in marketing exercise. Set in the ultimate beach getaway location for lovers – the Maldives – this Valentine's pamper day has nothing to do with the Tarantino-penned Bonnie & Clyde style caper flick of the same name.

On 14 February 2015, Velassaru, located on the South Malé Atoll, invites guests to celebrate an unforgettable Valentine’s Day with an indulgent Vinotherapie spa package.

During this newly launched, super-indulgent treatment that uses red and white wine as its main ingredients, couples will experience sensual bliss with a full body scrub, wrap and a massage, followed by a specially prepared candlelit bath to enjoy, complimented with a delicious bottle of wine… to be taken internally this time.

After watching the sun go down with a cocktail, guests can continue their evening with candlelit, five-course valentine’s champagne dinner at the resort’s Etesian restaurant, or – for a premium, of course – on the pearl-dust beach, under the stars, looking onto the Indian Ocean. 

The spa package costs around £420 per couple, and the dinner costs £165 for two in the restaurant, or £235 per couple for the beach experience.
