Valentine’s Day might be the perfect time for a romantic get-away but it’s not in every couple’s budget or maybe not possible because of work and family. So why not help your clients get away -- if not far from home at least far from the day-to-day routine and pressures. Entice clients to a perfect day or night out at your spa or massage business with special sweetheart packages geared for romance.


But don’t stop there. Turn your spa into a retreat that would make Cupid proud. Have bouquets of roses on hand throughout and keep the champagne on ice. Add some candles and romantic music for ambience and your clients will be delighted they didn’t have to deal with traffic or security checks at the airport.


For a complete night on the town how about dinner and dancing or dinner and a movie after a relaxing time with your team? Be creative. Think of other local businesses to partner with for the special occasion. And don’t forget retail. Have specially priced retail offerings gift wrapped for the occasion so that couples can take home something to remind them of the romantic time they spent together at your spa or massage business.


Here’s our recommended Romantic Retreat to add to your Valentine’s Day menu to create a little bit of paradise for your clients even for a few hours:
