Recently, it was announced that Sanctuary Cap Cana by AlSol in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, will become an adults-only resort at the end of the year. That news inspired us to round up some other hotspots and experiences perfect for traveling without the kids. Below we have romance geared travel, wine excurisions and a look at some upcoming properties. Take a look.

Dolphin Island

Dolphin Island is a secluded, private island in Fiji. The island is located just a boat ride away from Rakiraki, and the small staff can accommodate a range of hospitality and dining needs.

Now, couples can purchase a romance package with a four-night stay. The package aims to create privacy and total freedom for the guests and includes accommodation in a Guest Bure Suite. These rooms have timber floors, high ceilings, double sinks in the bathroom, an outdoor shower and private garden.

All meals and a standard bar are included in the package as well as transfers, two spa treatments, a picnic for two and a champagne breakfast. Guests will also be invited to a traditional lovo feast with Fijian musicians and will receive a small take home gift.

This package can be booked through March 31, 2016.
