Love is in the air, running through your veins, pumping in your heart and clearly visible in your anticipation of being with your beloved on Valentine’s Day.

Plan a romantic vacation with your special someone to any of these idyllic getaways and make your Valentine truly memorable.

The laid-back city of Alleppey is laden with astounding natural beauty and the quaint backwaters fringed by lush greenery strikes the fancy of couples.
