In a recent Facebook Live experiment we tried to work out the ideal length of a public goodbye kiss – and according to viewers, anything longer than 12 seconds and it all just starts to feel a bit awkward. Fortunately our new kiss and fly service at Gatwick Airport has launched just in time for Valentine’s Day, which allows customers an hour’s free parking before jetting off, meaning no more rushed goodbyes.
But isn’t the best solution to have no farewells at all? If you take advantage of our 2-day #LoveInTheAir Valentine’s sale, you can spread the love with our special companion fares, with flights for two people from £799 including all taxes. Whether you want to watch the sun set over Manhattan or see the cherry blossoms in Washington DC, we have something perfect for everyone.
But if you really want to make a big impression, head straight to Las Vegas. From the world’s swankiest hotel suites to fine-dining restaurants, handcrafted cocktails, world-class entertainment, high stakes gambling and a host of nearby natural attractions, it’s one of the most exciting destinations on earth. To whet your appetite, we’ve rounded up five of our most popular Las Vegas articles packed with recommendations and advice…
The hottest hotel suites in Sin City
If you really want to wow your loved one, surprise them with a stay in one of the most souped-up suites in the city, from tri-level ‘bungalows’ with private heated plunge pools, to sprawling penthouses with personal concierge service. Ok, so our fantasy selection might be slightly out of the price range of most ordinary holidaymakers, but we can but dream – right?
Seven delicious breakfast buffets in Las Vegas
Breakfast: It’s normally the most straightforward meal of the day, but not in Vegas. Here in Sin City, it’s often the most elaborate eating experience you’ll encounter in your entire stay, with the famed hotel buffets serving everything from the standard eggs, pancakes, bacon, waffles and other diner-type fare, to sophisticated servings of caviar, lobster tails, truffle mashed potatoes and Alaskan king crab. And save some room for the odd sweet treat or too – the patisserie displays are a sight to behold.
Beautiful hotel bars to be seen in
Need another opportunity to impress your date? Our line-up of the city’s best hotel bars includes the over-the-top Chandelier Bar at the Cosmpolitan – whose 65-foot high centerpiece features more than two million beaded crystals – and the indoor/outdoor Skyfall Lounge at the Delano, with a rooftop offering some of the best views in town.
A road trip through the Valley of Fire State Park
Partying too hard can sometimes leave you yearning for nature. Just outside Vegas, the extraordinary geology of Valley of Fire State Park is one of the best reasons to leave town. Hire a car and explore this otherwordly moonscape on your own, or join one of the frequent daily tours from Sin City.
20 reasons to travel to Las Vegas:
Still undecided? Whether you’re a first-time visitor or you simply need a few more reasons to return, our list of pull-factors will soon have you convinced. With everything from casinos, spas and imitation landmarks to high-end fine dining, low-brow entertainment and a whole lot more in between, boredom is an impossibility.
