Summer is one of those ideal times to ask someone out on a date – or rekindle romance with your special someone. It’s a time when indoors can seem stuffy, and offers the perfect chance to get out and do something different.

Take a drive: Goa abounds in natural beauty, and there’s nothing quite like a drive through the hinterland with the air-conditioning on. You can make a pit-stop at an off-track beach or find old forgotten historical treasures. Drive around quaint villages and soak in the beautiful Goan architecture and golden paddy fields.

Hit the spa: Get refreshed from the summer heat with a special couple spa date. Clube Saúde at Cidade de Goa offers luxurious treatments that will help you relax and enjoy a rejuvenating therapy together. You can tie it all up with some revitalising time in the Jacuzzi.

Netflix and chill: This is one of those all-American high school date ideas but can be so much fun with that one person you love. Get into an ultra-romantic mood in your bedroom with the lights down low, the air-conditioning on high, a cosy duvet and a bunch of your favourite movies or TV series.

Dinner by the beach: The beach is always romantic, and at Cidade de Goa, the ambience is always top notch. You can take a short stroll on the cool sand in the evening before heading to a delicious meal. The resort is hosting a special wine dinner on April 15 at Alfama to bring in the Easter festivities, a sumptuous spread with a selection of fine wines that is sure to make this date night memorable.
