Originally inspired by M. M. Kaye’s sweeping romantic novel, The Far Pavilions, The Pavilions Hotels & Resorts invites guests to live their own tales of romance with its lovingly curated Just the Two of Us packages; a mini-anthology of enchanting interludes set at participating hotels in Europe and Thailand.

Part of The Pavilions’ signature collection of Curated Journeys, these inspiring itineraries immerse couples in their desired destination’s romantic treasures, from discovering Krabi’s most secluded beaches by longtail boat to losing themselves in old Amsterdam’s famous ‘De 9 Straatjes’.
Renowned for its intricate network of waterways, beautiful parks and delicate façade houses, Amsterdam offers an idyllic and atmospheric break for couples. Comprising two meticulously restored 17th-century former merchants’ houses in the vibrant Canal District, the flamboyant 40-room boutique hotel The Pavilions Amsterdam The Toren offers sweeping views of the famous Keizersgracht canal and the hotel’s serene enclosed garden. Romantic highlights of the Just the Two of Us package include a private boat tour through the city’s UNESCO-protected canal system; a visit to the world-famous Rijksmuseum, home to Rembrandt’s most famous painting, Nachtwacht; and ascending the A’DAM observation tower – the perfect vantage point for a bird’s eye view of this storied city.


For a romantic Spanish escape to celebrate ‘El Dia de San Valentin’, The Pavilions Madrid is a stylish sanctuary steeped in art and history. In partnership with Madrid’s Alvaro Alcazar Gallery, the hotel exhibits select pieces by local artists to provide an exclusive cultural experience. Located on a quiet street by Plaza de Colon and Paseo de la Castellana, couples will find themselves in the heart of the action with a short walk to Madrid’s electrifying nightlife and vibrant shopping scene. The Just the Two of Us itinerary sweeps couples back through time to discover one of Spain’s most prominent writers and poets at La Casa Museo Lope de Vega, and up to the secret rooftop paradise of El Jardin Secreto de Salvador Bachiller, before heading back for a relaxing Hammam Experience at the hotel’s Andalusian Arab Baths. No trip to Spain’s capital would be complete without a culture fix at the renowned Museo del Prado; delectable tapas at El Barril de Recoletos; an authentic Flamenco dance show; and an intimate evening of some of the best jazz in Madrid at Recoletos Jazz.


At The Pavilions Phuket, couples can enjoy in a five-night tropical reverie of sandy beaches, beautiful waters and exotic Thai island life. The Just the Two of Us itinerary includes a languorous trip to the private island of Chok-Dee by traditional longtail boat; an indulgent Champagne brunch in a secluded corner of Northern Layan Beach National Park; and exploring hidden sea caves on an unforgettable night-time kayak experience. Alternatively, sustainable eco-resort, The Pavilions Anana Krabi offers a curated wellness experience amongst the spectacular beauty of Krabi’s limestone cliffs and peaceful forested valleys. Couples can enrich their souls and reconnect with nature with exclusive spa treatments, natural volcanic water pools, and farm-to-table culinary experiences. Just the Two of Us package highlights include unwinding at the Nature Aqua Beach Club with paddleboarding and kayak tours; discovering Krabi’s unique quartet of islands; and ascending to the hotel’s 360 Bar for majestic sunset views, sensational drinks and boundless vistas.
