Valentine's Day is just around the corner, which means stores are flooded with heart-shaped chocolate boxes, piles of teddy bears and bouquets ready for the gifting.

But perhaps the greatest gift you can give a lover can't be bought in a store. Whether you are newlyweds on your honeymoon or celebrating a 50th anniversary, it is undeniable that a romantic mini-getaway at a beautiful hotel can add a spark to your relationship.

TripAdvisor, the travel planning and booking site, put together a list of the Travelers' Choice world's most romantic hotels, using millions of reviews from travelers in 2016.

You won't find heart-shaped beds at these luxurious properties, but that doesn't mean they weren't designed with romance in mind.

The Place Luxury Boutique Villas in Thailand has a honeymoon villa with a personal heart-shaped infinity pool overlooking the ocean. If overlooking the Mediterranean Sea is more your style, the Anastasis Apartments on Santorini, Greece, has a roof deck where you can get a couples massage while gazing out at nearby islands.

Or perhaps your idea of romance is exploring a new place together. Nayara Springs in Costa Rica has private villas with beds draped in soft canopies, crystal clear pools edging up to rainforest fauna and a secluded adults-only section. It also offers awe-inspiring views of the Arenal Volcano peeking through the treetops.
