Destin, Fla. (Jan. 7, 2008) – Sneak away this Valentine’s Day to Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, where you’ll find romance at every corner – in walks along the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico or candlelit dinners at one of the award-winning restaurants on Sandestin’s 2,400-acre property. With convenient and value-added travel packages, you can spend more time spoiling your special someone with relaxation and love than planning on it.
Reserve your Valentine’s Day stay now with one of the following romance-filled packages:
The Village Sweetheart Package includes luxury accommodations in the heart of The Village of Baytowne Wharf, chilled sparkling champagne and fresh strawberries, all delivered personally to the room. Price for two adults starts at $160 per night.
The Sandestin Romance Package includes two nights’ accommodations in a one-bedroom condominium in Luau; daily breakfast for two at Another Broken Egg Café; a choice of house wine or a fruit basket delivered to the room; and two therapeutic massages. Price for two adults starts at $285 per night.

Once here, lovers will delight in finding less obvious romantic spots. For example, guests can hike hand-in-hand on the secluded Jolee Island or share a bite of freshly-made chocolate-covered strawberries at The Candymaker or take in the sights and sounds of concerts under the stars in The Village of Baytowne Wharf, to name a few.
Or wine-and-dine your sweetie at Sandestin’s signature beachfront restaurant, Finz, at a kick-off wine series event entitled, “Traveling the Back Roads of Spain.” Enjoy a perfectly-paired, five-course wine and dinner menu for $90 per couple. Highlights include Smoked Mussel with Manchego and Serrano Ham; Braised Oxtail, Carrots, Zucchini and Roasted Potatoes; and Apple Tart, Almond Financier, Honey and Goat Cheese Ice Cream.
