05 Feb Valentines special. Surprise your partner with a unique experience
They say that traveling couples are happier
If you have not planned your next couple weekend-trip you are missing a valuable opportunity, the opportunity to be happier.
A recent study published by the United States Travel Association says that couples who travel together have healthier and happier relationships compared to those who do not.
What we have already sensed for some time is confirmed today through research: “Traveling with your partner has a very positive effect on relationships.”
In Ellauri we know it and that is why we want to celebrate next Valentine’s Day with 5 romantic proposals so that this year you surprise your partner with an unforgettable experience.
A weekend-trip to awaken the romanticism
And, according to this study, 63% of couples say that a weekend-trip to anywhere – a great trip is not necessary – arouses romanticism in them far beyond the traditional gift.
The moments of intimacy experienced by the couple when changing the scenery make the relationship closer, eliminating daily friction.
These experiences activate the limbic system of the brain, related to pleasure and emotions, experiencing sensations so pleasant that they translate into greater happiness and romanticism.
So now you know. The best gift you can give yourself is a romantic weekend-trip.

5. Forest Bathing
Forest bathing is a very beneficial therapeutic activity for the human body.
It has been scientifically proven that “walks among the trees” provide very important health benefits such as: blood pressure reduction, relaxation, stress reduction …
The Japanese were the promoters of “forest bathing”, also known as “Shinrin yoku”, an activity that consists of crossing a completely relaxed forest ecosystem, using our senses consciously (mindfulness).
In Ellauri Hotel, we accompany you on this visit to the forest in a very special promotion that we have prepared for our couples. Two hotel nights, with breakfast included and a 60-minute “Shinrin yoku” session at a very special price.
Surprise your partner with a special gift and enjoy together an unforgettable experience with us.
Live a different Valentine’s Day at Hotel Ellauri. We will wait for you.
