Want to get away for a romantic trip this Valentine’s Day but can’t leave the kids at home? While ‘family-friendly’ and ‘romantic’ typically do not go hand-in-hand, these resorts and villas offer babysitting services, meaning you can sneak away from the family vacay and enjoy some much-needed alone time with your hubby.

A breezy beachfront retreat with a modern tropical vibe, Alila Seminyak offers sleek and sultry suites, bespoke service, and five stunning pools overlooking the ocean.
