An anniversary is a milestone event, worthy of special, well-thought-out plans. Get it right and you’re a hero to your sweetheart. Get it wrong and … well, best to not find out. But there’s no need to stress when the mere gesture of booking a room at the renowned Hotel Bel-Air is enough to pass the test with flying colors. The hotel’s gorgeously-manicured grounds are straight out of Romance 101, with 12 acres of arched walkways and bougainvillea giving you and your spouse every reason to take romantic strolls to nowhere in particular. Walk hand-in-hand past lush greenery, pausing to marvel at the elegant beauty of the three resident swans gracefully gliding in the pond of this former estate. Once darkness falls, meandering paths illuminated by torches lead you back to your room. Watch the look on your honey’s face when you open the door to discover a bed covered in rose petals, with champagne waiting on the table. The next morning, discuss your sweet dreams over scones at the hotel’s Wolfgang Puck-inspired breakfast buffet—Oprah says they’re the best she’s ever had—before revealing one last surprise: his-and-her treatments at La Prairie Spa, which boasts a couples enclave with private patio, a mosaic steam, and stylish relaxation areas.
