Date-worthy Desserts
The only problem with ordering dessert at the end of a meal is not knowing which one to choose… a dilemma that can be rectified at new cocktail and dessert bar Jerry Maguire where you’re encouraged to sate your sweet tooth with an onslaught of sugary concoctions and syrupy beverages that taste as good as they look. The next time you’re planning a date night, skip dinner and head straight to the best part of the night here, where you can spoon over the Choco Late—a chocolate lava pudding with Grand Marnier vanilla gelato and Nutella soil—and the artful Cheesecake Crunch (pictured) with hazelnut Baileys cheesecake and dark chocolate frozen foam. To wash it down, don’t miss the Alice The Wonderland cocktail—an ethereal Insta-worthy creation with Havana 3-year rum, elderflower syrup, mint, pineapple juice and a ball of spun sugar.

Broadway Hits
There’s nothing like a mini staycation or weekend trip to rekindle the romance between you and your partner. A quick ferry ride will take you to Macau this summer for the Broadway Summer Street Festival, a new street bazaar experience inspired by the vibrant and bustling Macanese night markets. Go hand-in-hand through the festival as you enjoy live entertainment, street performances, carnival games, shopping, arts and crafts, and of course, delectable street food fare. If you want to extend your holiday from a day trip to an overnight trip, book a room at the riverside Broadway Hotel to enjoy five-star comforts and a romantic night away.
Free entry to street festival, open through Aug 31. Broadway Macau, Cotai, Macau, (+853) 8883-3338,

So private that even some of the Peninsula’s staff don’t seem to know about it, the rooftop of The Peninsula Hotel houses an exclusive VIP aviator’s lounge and helipad for whisking fearless flyers up and away across the island for some adrenaline-pumping, high-flying adventure. If you think you’ve seen Hong Kong from every angle, think again: This 15-minute helicopter ride is guaranteed to blow you away as you look at Hong Kong in a way you never have before, with stunning birds-eye views of the city skyline, harbor, mountains, beaches and the city’s financial center. If you want to make unforgettable memories with your S.O. that you’ll cherish for a lifetime, this is the way to do it.
