It wouldn’t be a romantic couples getaway without an afternoon at one of our two world-renowned spas. Guests at Minerals Hotel are only steps away from the rejuvenating and relaxing Elements Spa & Salon. If you’re booking with Grand Cascades Lodge, don’t fret, because the Reflections Spa & Salon is equally luxurious and refreshing. Elements is the #1 spa in New Jersey for a reason: body ritual treatments, bamboo and copper decor, and premier massage therapy and skin care. Not to be outdone, Reflections has an 8,000 quartz crystal ceiling, biosphere pool, gemstone therapy, and a signature cinnamon brown sugar and honey scrub. You could—and maybe will—spend an entire day in one of our lavish spas.
After a soothing, relaxing afternoon in the spa, indulge in a romantic wine tasting in The Wine Cellar. This first-class cellar has over 6,000 different labels with over 150 receiving a perfect 100 rating by Robert Parker and Wine Selection. Embark on a daily complimentary wine tour before a dinner you’ll never forget. Restaurant Latour offers the Garden State’s premier dinner menu. The domestic lamb with broccoli and smoked potato is to-die-for, while the Muscovy duck with cranberry beans and cippolini onion is a unique dish with improbable flavors. Give mixology a shot with a weekly class at our Tuscan-inspired Springs Bistro, perfect for couples looking to modernize their drink menus at home.
If our world-class spas, wine cellar, and restaurants cannot entice you, then perhaps our secluded outdoor activities will do the trick. Take a self-guided two-hour cruiser bicycle trip through our naturally beautiful trail system—perfect for a picnic or a sunset viewing. Adventurous couples will also fall in love with our mountaintop hiking trails, sunset canoe rides, and nearby local farm tours. We’re also home to some of the best New Jersey golf courses, so a round at Ballyowen, Crystal Springs, or Wild Turkey should be on the docket.
Witness a Skylands sunset with a glass of wine in hand on a private balcony in your cozy suite. Consult our Couples Packages for a complete list of romantic options for your escape to Crystal Springs Resort. All other romantic getaways will pale in comparison to the weekend you spent in our New Jersey Skylands paradise.
