Romantic hideaways

Whisk your lover off to one of Canada's most romantic hideaways.

Poet's Cove Resort & Spa, Pender Island, B.C.
Nestled among the evergreens, the cottages at Poets Cove are a calm retreat from the bustle of the mainland. Snuggle up on the balcony and watch the sun dip beyond the horizon before heading to your outdoor hot tub for some steamy stargazing.

Romantic Escape Package
Two nights in a cottage, $100 dining credit and $200 spa credit, starts at $998 per couple (www.poetscove.com).



Hotel Dominion 1912, Quebec City
Linger over seven mouth-watering courses and an aperitif at the award-winning restaurant Laurie Raphael before heading back to the hotel lounge for vintage port and mignardises by the fireplace.

Gourmet Dolce Vita package A one-night stay, continental breakfast and dinner at Laurie Raphael costs $495 per couple (www.hoteldominion.com).

Kingsbrae Arms, St. Andrews, N.B.
This gorgeous Relais & Châteax inn is a relaxed affair. Pack a picnic and a chilled bottle of white wine and head out for a long, rambling walk along the shore.

Spring Indulgence Package
A two-night stay, breakfast, four-course dinner and champagne cocktail reception costs $895 per couple (www.kingsbrae.com).

Ritzy business
The gande dame of London, The Ritz Hotel, is celebrating her 100th year with a special two-night Centennial Celebration package, starting at $3,000. With airport transfers by Rolls-Royce Phantom, a four-course gourmet dinner, theatre tickets and a rose-based mani and pedi -- even a losing streak in the hotel's private member's gaming club won't mess with your mood.

And don't forget ....

The Smiths' Hotel Collection: Europe
Step aside, Brangelina. There's a new act in town. Stylish, well travelled and expert at slipping away for romantic interludes, these Smiths feature reviews of European hotels by cool designers, club owners and restaurateurs. Writers travelled anonymously wit their partners -- hence the Mr & Mrs Smith tag. So, reviewer-designer Stella McCartney lazed with her hubby in a canopied four-poster bed at JK Place, a sumptuous boutique hotel in Florence, Italy. The Smith guides also offer a memebership card with each book -- a passe-partout to discounts, complimentary champagne and other goodies -- and online booking at www.mrandmrssmith.com
The Smiths' Hotel Collection: Europe (Universe; $42).
