Looking to surpise your significant other with a Valentine's Day getaway?  Here are five gay-friendly hotels that also offer full-spa services: 


THE OUT NYC, the self-described straight-friendly urban resort that is steps from Times Square, offers a romantic Spa Rejuvenation Package that is ideal for couples. The Out NYC has one of the only spas in the city to offer an authentic Turkish Hamam treatment. Guests can enjoy a fabulous vacation in the Big Apple with a day of romance and relaxation followed by a night of excitement at the hotel’s XL Nightclub.


Aruba has some of the best beaches in the world, and the oceanside Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort & Casino features rooms and suites with spectacular views. The hotel is also home to one of the island's top spas, ZoiA (the Papiamento word for balance and poise). An ideal stay is to book a room at the bed-and-breakfast rate and add a spa package like the ZoiA serenity couple's package complete with massages and Champagne.


The grandest and most historic of Scottsdale, Ariz., resorts, the AAA 5-diamond JW Marriott Camelback Inn Resort & Spa offers an enchanting setting for a romantic getaway. The uniquely Southwestern 32,000 square-foot, award-winning spa located in the middle of the Sonoran Desert offers 32 treatment rooms, a state-of-the-art fitness center, heated outdoor lap pool, and breathtaking views of Camelback Mountain. For Valentine’s, the resort is offering multiple spa vacation packages.


The newly renovated and re-branded Sago Spa & Salon makes a Valentine's stay the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa & Marina extra special. Fresh off its 10th anniversry, the hotel is situated on the banks of the Choptank River has 400 guest rooms. The spa received a $1 million makeover and offers a number of unique treatments such as the "Winter Pomegranate Prelude," a 60-minute pomegranate and sea-salt body scrub.


You will truly feel like a god as soon as you enter Qua Baths and Spa at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. This Sin City retreat's roman baths consist of three distinct pools varying in both temperature and size. There is also an in-house tea sommelier who will pair teas with your particular treatment. Of course, simply staying at Caesars Palace has its own rewards, espcially with the addition of its Octavious Town and Nobu Hotel, an over-the-top luxurious hotel within a hotel.

NOTE: Each of these recommended properties are members of the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association or TAG Approved.
