4 of the most romantic getaways in Georgia

Read on for four romantic Georgia getaway ideas (plus deets on perks at some of the best hotels in Georgia for couples).

1. Savannah: an intimate & historic getaway for couples

It probably isn’t a surprise that a couples getaway in Savannah is first on our list. The city is one of the South’s most historic and gorgeous cities, and there are a lot of things to do in Savannah, whether you’re looking for relaxing spas, great eateries, neat museums — like the SCAD Museum of Art — and more.

The accommodations here are among the best in the state, too. The Andaz, for example, is among the best boutique hotels in Savannah and blends classic Southern hospitality with luxurious contemporary styles. 

Overall, Savannah is an excellent romantic getaway in Georgia for couples who want an upscale urban experience amidst a charming setting.

Fora Perks at Andaz Savannah:

  • $100 hotel / resort credit.

  • Breakfast daily.

  • Upgrade & early check-in whenever possible.

2. Atlanta: arguably the best romantic getaway in Georgia for couples who want variety

Atlanta makes this list almost by default because there’s nowhere else in Georgia that offers the city’s sheer volume of options, regardless of budget. The top things to do in Atlanta include checking out the Georgia Aquarium, sampling local cuisine at Ponce City Market and strolling through cool neighborhoods in Downtown ATL like the Fairlie-Poplar District.

As for places to stay, Atlanta accommodates well. Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta and The St. Regis Atlanta are among the ritziest choices — both complete with onsite spas, fine-dining options and a bevy of high-end amenities — but there are more affordable choices both in and outside of Downtown.

Fora Perks at Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta:

  • When you book Four Seasons through Fora, you will enjoy exclusive Four Seasons Preferred Partner benefits. Your advisor will be pleased to give you more details.

Fora Perks at The St. Regis Atlanta:

  • $100 hotel / resort credit.

  • Breakfast daily.

  • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

3. Lake Oconee: a luxurious retreat in inland Georgia for discerning couples

If Atlanta’s bustling streets sound like too much to deal with, then perhaps a bespoke lakeside resort is more your speed. 

Set amidst the picturesque backdrop of Lake Oconee, The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds provides a luxurious escape from urban living for couples seeking elite amenities and a wealth of activities ranging from practicing your swing on any one of the five nearby championship golf courses to unwinding at the resort’s award-winning spa.

Of all the romantic escapes in Georgia, The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds may be the most lavish, too (although the resorts below give The Ritz-Carlton a run for its money). Accommodations here range from opulent guest rooms to a multi-story lakefront estate with a private pool and dock.

  • Breakfast daily.

  • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

4. St. Simons Island & Sea Island: two of Georgia’s best oceanside destinations for couples

Not to be outdone by Lake Oconee, St. Simons Island and Sea Island offer several gorgeous, beachside resorts that are practically dripping with luxury. 

Among our favorites are The Cloister at Sea Island and The Lodge at Sea Island. The former is a bit more secluded and really leans into its elegant Southern roots, while the latter hosts a similar theme, but is only a short walk from St. Simons Island’s best golf courses. Both are right on the water, too, providing a nice respite from Georgia’s heat and humidity. 

As for the islands themselves, there’s not quite as much to do beyond the resorts — aside from admiring the islands’ natural beauty and historic homes — making these twin destinations an ideal choice for couples who are content to stay in one place. 

Fora Perks at The Cloister at Sea Island:

  • $100 hotel / resort credit.

  • Breakfast daily.

  • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

Fora Perks at The Lodge at Sea Island:

  • $100 hotel / resort credit.

  • Breakfast daily.

  • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.
