Luxury Valentine’s Day Experiences & The Best Places to Propose

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, you may have given some thought to a suitable Valentine’s Day gift; perhaps a new handbag, a nice watch or some jewellery but the next thing to consider is where you should go for the big day. At Starr Luxury Cars, we believe the best gift is an experience; sharing your time with that special someone whilst you both take pleasure in an outing, whether it’s an evening at your favourite restaurant or a spontaneous weekend away in Rome. Whatever your preference, we can help you start and end your journey in ultimate luxury and style with a chauffeur-driven hire car in the UK. The destination, of course, is completely up to you, but we’ve put together a selection of our favourite extravagant Valentine’s Day gift ideas for inspiration.

If a romantic dinner is what you have in mind, Heston Blumenthal’s restaurant, The Fat Duck offers an amazing 15-course banquet designed to take you on the journey of a childhood holiday, with prices starting at £325 per person, not including the standard wine pairing. This is one of the most expensive restaurants in the UK, and considering it’s about a 45-minute drive from central London, the food offering needs to be mind-blowing. Imagine the joy you’ll get from sharing this highly-in-demand experience with the love of your life, sampling nostalgic delights. Indulge in your expensive Valentine’s Day dinner further by ensuring you don’t have to worry about travel. Starr Luxury Cars has a fleet of luxury chauffeur driven cars for hire, including Range Rovers, Mercedes and Bentleys. The restaurant is fully booked up to four months in advance, so unless you happen to have connections to Heston himself, perhaps this is one for next year.

Or perhaps you’d like to treat your lucky man or lady to a pampering session, including beauty procedures and spa treatments. From a £350 24-carat gold facial to a £700 diamond heated chakra massage, there are plenty of UK spa resorts offering indulgent experiences. Imagine being picked up from your home by one of our exceptional chauffeurs before being driven in your own prestige hire car directly to the Connaught hotel in Mayfair, home to one of the best rated luxury spas in the UK. For just £2,345 a night, you will be treated to a premier suite, massage, fitness session and dinner. Choose to upgrade and you can choose from a selection of extravagant suites, all with exclusive features, such as a rooftop terrace suite where your butler will be ready and waiting to unpack your luggage, so you can enjoy your Valentine’s Day experience right from the minute you leave your home.

But to score the biggest points this Valentine’s Day, surprise your loved one with a romantic getaway. Our professional chauffeurs and expert team are discreet and can help you organise the perfect gift, arriving at your home to collect you both before driving to the airport where you can board your private jet and reveal your extravagant plans.
