Breakaway - Valentine's Day - Ways To Karma Sutra!

Valentine’s Day or CNY, that’s a plum long weekend to eke out some downtime whether its just with your man or with the entire brood. A break from the grind of real life is VD day enough. Here are some sexy sweeteners out there:

If you really want to really get into the mood for VD, make a pilgrimage to the real deal – the temples of the karma sutra! Your hot hot destination is Khajuraho, a UNESCO world heritage in India well known for its erotic sculptures. See 20 of the original 80 temples – including The Temple of Kandariya – with profusion of explicit carvings of karma sutra during medieval times.

Khajuraho is famous for its ancient temples which took 200 years to build from the year 950 during the Chandella Dynasty. The largest collection of medieval and Jain temples, this site is considered one of the ‘seven wonders’ of India! It’s certainly proof that the ancients knew a few things that we can learn from.

Not too far away, it’s a two and a half hour flight from Delhi. Jet Airways offers a 6D/5N Khajuraho package which combines key highlights of Delhi and the holy city of Varanasi, starting from S$1448 per person twin sharing.

A number of travel agents offer this package, including New Shan Travel (Tel: 62204924), Asia-Euro Travel Tel: 63385566) and Centour Travel (Tel: 63443492)

But if you’re a bit more of a prude and in-your-face sex is not your thing, how about delicately undulating hills and rolling vales a la The Sound of Music (sans nuns, I’m afraid). Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa claims to be “Australia’s first conservation-led luxury resort”, three hours from Sydney, NSW, and set amid the Greater Blue Mountain World Heritage Area. It’s built around a fully restored homestead which sits within its own private nature reserve.

Its two-night “Timeless Escape” package (AU$1666 per person) puts you up in the Heritage Suite, and includes a one hour spa treatment of your choice at the resort’s Timeless Spa. You also get all your meals provided, all non-alcoholic drinks and “a selected range of regional alcoholic beverages with meals”, plus two nature activities within the resort per day. are included in the package. Valid from now until 30 April. So you see? VD day can also come to those who wait…..!

But if neither you nor your sweeties (plus brood) can get away, there’s still luxe living at the Ritz Carlton Millenia Singapore. For Valentine’s Day, the hotel is offering the Sweet Suite package at $498++ per night with a rose petal bubble bath thrown in. And as far as I can see, there ain’t room enough for two in that tub, so send the kids and hubby out for some treasured bonding time! In addition to the delicious soak, the package includes a one-night stay in a Premier Suite, a bottle of champagne with chocolates and strawberries, in-room breakfast for two (more bubbles – a glass of champagne each!) and 20% retail privilege at Chalone Luxury Intimate Apparel at Millenia Walk. Available from 13-16 Feb.
