unnamed (12)Conrad Miami Invites Couples to Celebrate Florida’s Marriage Equality With a Getaway Devoted to Time for Romance Conrad Miami proudly celebrates the right for all couples in Florida to (finally) say “I Do,” heralding Florida’s long-overdue marriage equality with a new getaway called “It’s About Time!”

The luxury hotel takes this phrase one step further with a package that’s passionately devoted to real quality time-together-for-two … in the tropics.

“It’s about time that Florida granted marriage equality to all, and Conrad Miami offers all couples the perfect getaway to nurture their time together,” said the hotel’s General Manager, Stephane Mercier.

“Our It’s About Time! package is more than just a play on words, it’s a meaningful, carefully crafted escape for couples to refocus on what’s important – taking the time to celebrate their love for each other.”

The hotel has teamed up with relationship expert Dr. Ken Christiansen, who specializes in gay and lesbian couples, to offer travel tips for disconnecting.

Conrad Miami’s It’s About Time! stress-free getaway includes:

–  Two-night deluxe accommodations with sweeping views overlooking the city of Miami or Miami’s Biscayne Bay in a spectacular guest room.

–  Romantic dinner-for-two at the hotel’s Atrio Restaurant + Wine Room with a special chef’s menu.

–  Two day passes to Hilton Bentley Beach Club in South Beach where two chaise lounges, towels and an umbrella await.

–  50% off a couples massage at The Spa at Conrad Miami (if guests are willing to relinquish their smartphones upon arrival).

“We’re seeing more couples stressed for time because they’re trying to ‘have it all’ – the family, the home, the kids, the careers, the social life – and on top of everything else they’re overwhelmed by planning their weddings and honeymoons,” said Dr. Ken Christiansen, a Miami-based clinical psychologist specializing in LGBT couples.

One of Dr. Christiansen’s favorite tips for couples is a pre-wedding getaway to disconnect from life’s pressures.

Conrad Miami’s “It’s About Time!” addresses some of these important tips for couples looking to relax, including:

Tip # 1:  Try something totally new. 
Vacation is a perfect time to be adventurous.  Plan one new activity that you and your partner have never done before to inject some adrenaline into the mix.  In advance of the romantic getaway, guests can submit their pre-arrival inquiries through  the Conrad Concierge app.

Tip # 2:  Create the ultimate date night.
Plan a date that you know your other half will really enjoy and remember.  TheConrad Concierge app will also come to the rescue here, too. Guests can send special questions in advance and the Conrad team will help come up with ideas.  Flirt with each other at one of Conrad Miami’s many romantic enclaves, hook up for a drink at LvL 25, and fall in love all over again. Make it memorable with personalized stationary to hand-write (no typing on devices!) love-messages and forget-me-nots, to remember always.

Tip # 3:  Disconnect from your electronic devices.
To block the temptations to check emails, texts and messages, guests will have the option to turn over their cell phones and other gadgets upon check-in to be locked away in a safe for the duration of their trip.
