When it comes to expansive, romantic gestures, two names spring instantly to my mind â€“ the Taj Mahal and Richard Burton.
Emperor Shah Jahan ordered the construction of the Taj Mahal Palace in memory of his third wife Mumtaz Mahal. He promised her on her death bed that he would build a monument to match her beauty and although it took him 16 years to complete the mausoleum, he was true to his word.
For her 40th birthday in 1972 Richard Burton bought Elizabeth Taylor a large heart-shaped diamond known as the Taj Mahal “I would have liked to buy her the Taj-Mahal,” Burton remarked, “but it would cost too much to transport.â€
Such extravagant gestures are beyond the reach of most of us but you don’t have to be an Emperor or a millionaire icon of the silver screen to be able to afford an indulgent Valentine’s Day. Here at Sands Beach Resort we’re offering a Valentine’s Day package which is sure to ignite the romance in everyone.
As far as I’m concerned, there are certain conditions that are conducive to romance and lying beneath Lanzarote‘s clear blue skies in 20Â° plus sunshine before retiring to my superior apartment for a private aromatherapy massage are most definitely amongst them.
As part of the Valentine’s Day special offer, Sands Beach will perfume your room withÂ scented candles and arrange for you and your partner to enjoy the therapeutic benefits of a relaxing and sensual massage with aromatic herbs and hot stone or clay treatments to leave your skin feeling like silk and you feeling like a million dollars.
After your massage, uncork your complimentary bottle of cava and enjoy its chilled, sparkling contents as you get ready for your special dinner date.
Our amazing animation team will dine, entertain and indulge the little ones for the whole evening while you wander along, hand in hand beneath the moonlight to the Hacienda Restaurant for a candlelit dinner and wine.
You see, here at Sands Beach Resort, we may not be the Taj Mahal but we have luxury and comfort and the moon reflected in the still waters of the lagoon. You may not have the money of Richard Burton or the looks of Liz Taylor but we can still make you feel like a film star this Valentine’s Day.
