New Delhi : TripAdvisor has revealed the Top 25 romantic hotels for couples to plan getaways this Valentine’s Day, as rated by travelers in India and around the world. 

Interesting trends from its ‘Romance’ survey with 1682 respondents from India were also shared. The findings revealed that most Indians believe romantic holidays are ‘critical’ in today’s relationships.

As per the findings, as many as 95% of the respondents are partial to romantic holidays – a majority, 65%, believe such holidays are a must to keep the spark in a relationship alive; another 30% say taken once in a while such holidays augur well for relationships. A negligible percentage of the respondents dismiss the notion of romantic holidays altogether as ‘over-hyped’ and ‘more of an indulgence’.

“Valentine’s Day is one more reason for a couple to spend quality time with each other. The fact that 95% respondents to our Romance survey believe strongly in romantic getaways, augurs well for relationships in general.
