Valentine’s Day is one of my most favorite days of the year, after my Birthday and New Years. I still remember how we all waited in anticipation this day in school, guessing if this year will be different and we will receive Valentine’s card from that special someone. Well, I received a lot of cute messages and cards on Valentine’s Day when I was studying, but never from someone I really wanted, which always made me feel disappointed. Now I remember it with a smile, back then it was a tragedy of my life.

Valentine’s Day is all about chocolate, red roses, champagne and love. Love between two people, what can be more beautiful and magical? There is no surprise that a lot of people choose Valentine’s Day for marriage or proposal, because everything around screams of love and unity. Together forever! This is the day when you want to believe in eternal love and true soul mates, the day you want to do something special and celebrate in style and luxury.

That is why I selected 7 most exciting and romantic ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day in The Ritz-Carlton hotels around the world.
