Looking for Romantic Hotel Room Ideas? Here are some fun ones you can do.

Whether you’re staying local or in an exotic location, a hotel date always feels like a special treat. Staying in a hotel adds a bit of luxury to your evening and gives a perfect opportunity for romance.

Being in such close proximity to each other for an extended time, while being completely alone provides an intimate setting for you to get to know each other better.

Hotel dates allow you to completely focus on each other without any distractions or responsibilities. 

These dates are often exciting alone, but there are a few extra touches you can add to make the evening even more special:

Consider Bringing Your Own Candles

Nothing says romance like candles! It’s a good idea to check if your hotel is ok with you using them first.

Also be wary around bedding etc to avoid any accidents. Flameless LED candles are a great way to play it safe while still creating a more romantic vibe.

Bring Your Own Foods

Bringing your own food is not only more budget-friendly but also gives you more choices and an opportunity to surprise your partner. Chocolate-covered strawberries are a nice touch.

Create a Themed Night

Pick a theme and both bring food and drinks to suit. You could even dress up if you are feeling playful!

Order Room Service

Ordering room service feels like a special treat and eating alone in your room together will be super intimate. This also changes up your standard date routine from your typical restaurant meals out.

Rose Petals

A bed covered in rose petals may be a little cliche to some, but they really set the tone for a romantic night and will make your partner feel like they are in a romantic movie!

Petals are budget-friendly and easy to arrange, whilst still having a real impact.

Buying your partner flowers rather than petals would also be a super cute gesture, which will add to the atmosphere of your room.


Bring a game from home to play or create your own. Something flirty works well here, such as truth or dare.

But we have tons of fun couples questions games you can check out!

Get a Late Check Out

You may have the option of getting a late checkout. Having a sleep-in together and not having to worry about an early alarm will help you both completely switch off and relax.

This is particularly true if you have busy jobs or lifestyles.

Pick an Activity for the Next Day

Your hotel date doesn’t have to end the next morning! Keep the fun going by picking something exciting to do together the next day to give you something to look forward to.

Depending on whereabouts you are staying you could go hiking, explore the local area or go for a bike ride.

Take a Bath Together

If your hotel room has a bath big enough, bathing together can be a real bonding experience.

You may want to bring your own salts or oil from home to add a more personal touch and create your own spa day.

Order Champagne

Spoil yourselves with the most romantic drink- champagne!

Get a Massage

Many hotels offer spa services for you to indulge in. If yours doesn’t, why not create your own in the room?

Bring massage oil from home. You could even bring face masks, manicure tools etc to turn your evening into a full pamper session.

Remember Lighting

Good lighting is essential for setting the tone. Adjust the lighting with a dimmer switch, or just use your side lamps to avoid anything too harsh.

Create your own Playlist

Some hotels can be a little soulless and (hopefully!) your room will be quiet. Create a more personal atmosphere by bringing your own music.

It doesn’t have to be anything too complex or technical, simply put together a playlist on your phone or laptop of songs you know you both enjoy.

You may even want to have a little dance around the room together!

Order Breakfast in Bed

Make your partner feel truly appreciated by ordering breakfast from room service.

Breakfast in bed is the ultimate luxury and is completely relaxing. It’s also a great way to start the day, putting you both in a good mood for whatever you have planned.

Pick a Room with a View

Depending on your location, you may have the option of upgrading to a room with a view, typically a garden or sea view.

This will make your evening, and the next morning, feel extra special.

And if you happen to get a room at the beach, try our fun beach date ideas!


Of course you would hope your hotel room is clean, but many establishments smell a little sterile or of cleaning products- not particularly romantic!

Add a personal touch, with a light spritz of perfume to the pillows, being careful not to overdo it!

Hot Tub

Some hotel amenities may include a hotel tub where you can book a time slot or have full use during your stay.

Being close to each other while you aren’t fully dressed encourages intimacy and flirting. Hot tubs are also a great way to unwind.

Wear Robes

Many hotels offer complimentary robes which are cosy and instantly relaxing. They also mean you don’t have to worry about what to wear, you can just be comfortable with one another.

Rent a Movie

There be an option to rent a movie to watch something in bed together while you relax. Go or a classic drama or romantic comedy.

Make movie night extra special with these movie dates.

Order Dessert

Indulge in a dessert from room service in bed together. You could even feed each other if you feel comfortable!

Chocolate-based desserts tend to have a romantic feel. If you can’t choose which to order, why not spoil yourselves and try several! Dessert dates are our favorite!

Whatever you decide to do from these romantic hotel room ideas, it’s bound to be a fun and romantic time when you’re there with your love. Heck, even sleeping in and not leaving the bed all day would be nice! 😉
