Love is in the air this weekend, and if you don’t already have something super romantic planned for your lover then don’t panic – Winnipeg has plenty of sweet places you can take your lover. We’ve rounded up five places you can arrange to spend Valentine’s Day in Winnipeg.

Chill out at Thermëa Nordik Spa. Sink into hot outdoor pools at this Scandinavian inspired spa. Spend a while in the saunas before stepping out into the crisp cold air, then nip back into the warm waters. Bliss. Add in a body treatment, or a meal at the fabulous on-site restaurant, and you’ve got yourself a very impressive date lined up to share with your beloved.  The spa offers a number of packages targeted at lovers for Valentine’s.

Take in some sexy Bossa Nova and Latin jazz at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. This Valentine’s night, the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra will be playing the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim, who wrote The Girl from Ipanema (and many, many more Bossa Nova hits covered by artists all over the world).

Learn about the birds and the bees at FortWhyte Alive. This strictly adults only presentation will discuss animal attraction in various species, and should be a fun and educational way to start off your Valentine’s night. Follow up with a meal at the Buffalo Stone Cafe (on-site) afterwards, or go on to wherever else tickles your fancy (whether that be to take a few cues from the wild animals, or to find a decent cocktail somewhere first).

Feast on aphrodisiac foods at the Fairmont Winnipeg. From oysters to plenty of red meat followed by decadent desserts and a course of chocolate body paint (!), this special Valentine’s menu at the Fairmont is sure to satisfy your stomach, and leave you feeling frisky once the meal is done. Lots of restaurants in the city are serving up special menus for the 14th, but this one really does sound exceptional.

Scare yourselves silly at the St Valentine’s Horror Con. Okay, so this may not be every couple’s cup of tea, but did you know that research has shown links between the fear and anxiety produced when watching a scary movie to feelings of arousal? At this event you can get close to an actor who played Jason Voorhees in several of the Friday the 13th sequels, get made over as a zombie, browse plenty of horror movie paraphernalia, and join in a horror trivia challenge (as well as a bunch of other themed activities).

Whether you’re planning on being in Winnipeg on February the 14th or any other time, our luxurious and beautifully designed suites make the perfect backdrop for a sexy getaway in the city. Contact us to find out more.
