Love is in the air and what better way to show your partner how much you care than by treating them to the season's savoury or sweet indulgences.

Not sure where to go or what to do? Well, you're in luck! Flair is here to save the day with four options sure to unleash the hopeless romantic within you.

Spa and Dinner Package Eden Gardens Wellness Resort and Spa in St Andrew

Eden Gardens is encouraging lovers to ditch the cliché red roses and basket and instead be 'spa-taneous' and pamper themselves with a Spa Date.

The concept includes an aromatic side-by-side 60-minute massage done on the terrace under the stars, set with romantic candlelights overlooking the lush garden.

Couples will be able to enhance their experience with a chocolate, wine/champagne and private candlelight dinner for two.

Spa Date is all about relaxing, rekindling and reuniting in a space for two.

Contact Eden Gardens at 946-9981 for more information.
