Big Sunset Dinner Cruise
This three-hour tour is sure to end in a kiss as the amber sun dips below the horizon. The 50-passenger boat takes off from Agat Marina just in time for wine and departing views of Guam’s southern hillside. Seventies funk and soul plays in the background as lovers enjoy the crisp ocean breeze. Just after sunset, a full dinner — glazed ribs, grilled tilapia, seasoned red rice, corn on the cob, cabbage salad, and even cookies — is served while the boat sways gently next to Anae Island where birds are hurriedly roosting for the evening. The stars are sharp and bright in the stark black sky. Reef sharks make a brief appearance in the waters below to grab morsels of food from generous dinner guests. Calm contemplation turns into joyful laughing when singles and couples move to the front of the boat for dancing. Book your reservation now. $$$$
An obvious choice, but still an inspiring locale for sweethearts as they contemplate the devotion of the lovers who leapt to their death at this iconic spot. According to legend, a beautiful Spanish/Chamorro girl was forbidden to marry her young beau, a strong Chamorro chief. Betrothed by her father to a powerful Spanish captain, the young woman fled to the very cliff where she met her true love. The forbidden were pursued to the edge of the cliff above Tumon Bay. Trapped, they tied their long black hair in a single knot, kissed for the last time, and jumped into the crashing waters below. $
Roy’s Restaurant & Lounge
They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach and we would argue that is true for a woman as well. With food that excites the palate, Roy’s is a perfect locale for a romantic dinner. Live jazz, sumptuous food, and first class service are sure to incite romance on a first date or a 50th anniversary. $$$
How could a glowing sunset not spark romance? This outdoor pavilion is an excellent location to watch the warm rays of the sun marinate the clouds at dusk. Order drinks and relax on the beachfront lounge chairs at this Gun Beach bar and grill. The lapping waves and cool night breeze are just divine. $$
Load up the picnic basket with goodies — we recommend gourmet cheese and wine — and head to the hills. The secluded I Memorias Para I Lalahita offers sweeping views of the coastline village of Umatac. A stone pavilion offers cover and is a perfect spot to admire the lush green valleys and your loved one’s smiling eyes. $
What is more relaxing than a spa date for two? Angana Spa promises a tactile experience to engage all the senses, with a “high touch, low tech” approach. Book a massage for two and allow the sensual aromas and calming massage to erase all the cares of the day. You and your beau will emerge refreshed, relaxed, and ready for romance. $$$$
One of Guam’s jazziest and most modern joints, Table 35 serves up sophisticated new American cuisine. Live jazz bands play regularly and reservations are recommended. Check out their Valentine’s Day Dinner Special for 2013. $$$-$$$$
This upscale Italian eatery in Hyatt Guam Resort & Spa is perfect for a special occasion. White table cloth service with views of the lush manicured grounds are nothing short of pure romance. From antipasti, pizza, and pasta to fish and steak, the chef’s inspired creations are often a delight to both the palette and the eyes. Reservations are recommended. $$$-$$$$
