If your standard getaway plans have lost their spark, it's probably because you've been searching for love in all the wrong places. Turn your gaze a bit closer to home and cozy up to this Escape to Lovers Key Resort, situated on a largely private island off Fort Myers Beach, Florida.

Fall in love with rooms that feature a private balcony, king-size bed, queen-size sleeper sofa, and fully equipped kitchens, and resort amenities that include a lagoon-style heated pool with a waterfall and breakfast at Flippers on the Bay, where the morning fare ranges from indulgent lobster eggs Benedict to build-your-own omelets.

One of the area's best bets for waterfront casual dining, Flippers on the Bay is "a favorite hangout for locals that want to enjoy a frozen rum drink and some good Florida fare in a very relaxed, away-from-it-all atmosphere," says Naples Daily News. Start with Caluso crab cakes or tuna ceviche, then try the original coconut shrimp—hand-battered and deep-fried with a mango coulis.

During the day, walk five minutes to Lovers Key State Park, a two-mile stretch of coast that Frommer's calls one of The Best Beaches in Florida. Go overboard with kayaking The Great Calusa Blueway, or fall hook, line, and sinker for a deep-sea fishing excursion. For those with a touch of wanderlust, the island's central location makes it easy to access Florida attractions such as Sanibel Island, Fort Myers Beach, Bonita Springs, Naples, and the Everglades.

When you're ready to begin a new relationship with relaxation, consider looking up this Escape's number—we've heard you're more than compatible.

  • "Views can be stupendous from upper floors in this 14-story tower just north of Lovers Key State Park. The Gulf seems to stretch forever, and dolphins and manatees in the estuary put on quite a show."
