【推荐3】   Are you in the mood for a luxury, forested or elegant place where you can hunker down with your loved one for Valentine's Day — or whenever? Here are some ideas for love nests.

One & Only, Cape Town (South Africa)

Cape Town is the continent's hottest happening city, and One & Only is the place to be for luxurious lodging. It's in the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, within walking distance of great shopping, galleries and restaurants. You may be reluctant to leave the hotel, though: It has one of the best spas in the city, along with three restaurants, including Africa's first Nobu. The hotel also houses NEO, which sells South Africa's hippest designer fashions.

The hotel spa has all the latest features, including a cutting-edge gym, a vitality pool (it takes a whirlpool to the next level) and a "mood-boosting" Ice Fountain, which use varying water temperatures, aromas, soothing music and relaxing colored lights to rid you of stress.

Info: One & Only, Dock Road, Cape Town; 011-27-21-431-5800, capetown.oneandonlyresorts.com. Doubles from $662 a night; includes full buffet breakfast.

Tamarack Lodge (Mammoth Lakes)

Tamarack is a great escape for all tastes and all seasons, with something for nearly every budget. It's just a mile from Mammoth Mountain Ski Area and 2 1/2 miles from downtown Mammoth Lakes; it's private and woodsy but still handy to activities.

Accommodations include European-style guest rooms, with antique beds and quilts, in the historic lodge; free-standing historic cabins; and luxurious cabins as well as fireplaces and living rooms.

Info: Tamarack Lodge, 163 Twin Lakes Road, Mammoth Lakes; (800) 626-6684, www.tamaracklodge.com; doubles from $89.

Ritz-Carlton (South Beach, Miami)

The Ritz, built in 1953 and originally known as the DiLido, was one of most fashionable hotels . If you are looking to indulge, hire a personal shopper to take you to the boutiques, or rent a daybed by the huge pool or a Ritz cabana at the DiLido Beach Club, only a short stroll away.

If you're hungry, get a table outside at the hotel's highly rated Bistro One LR, which serves Spanish Riviera cuisine. If you're looking to venture out into the Miami scene, Macchialina, with reasonably priced classic Italian cuisine, is the ticket. Order a Coco Before Chanel cocktail and tuck into dishes even tastier than Mama used to make.

Info: Ritz-Carlton, South Beach, 1 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach; (786) 276-4000, lat.ms/1K13fgD. Doubles from $549.

The Modern (Honolulu)

Think of the Modern as more jet-set Hawaii, offering an usual beach experience. Slightly removed from the noise of Waikiki, the Modern overlooks the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor, with the surf break of Waikiki beyond.

The Sunrise Pool looks like a scene out of Ibiza on the Mediterranean, with rest rooms set in the water and women drifting around in gauzy(纱似的) cover-ups. The amazing Sunset Pool — it's a man-made lagoon (泻湖)surrounded by 100 tons of sand — is for adult guests。

If this is not your scene, escape to your room, decorated mostly in white and where the music does not reach. There are several in-house restaurants, the best is by celebrity chef Masaharu Morimoto, of "Iron Chef" fame, who mixes Japanese and Western ingredients into melt-in-your-mouth masterpieces.

Info: The Modern, 1775 Ala Moana Blvd., Honolulu; (855) 970-4161, www.themodernhonolulu.com. Doubles from $349.
