An Anniversary with Aphrodite’s Court and a Romantic Movie

Your anniversary is coming up, you have no clue what to do, and you’re trying to stay within a certain budget. If this sounds familiar to you, don’t worry — you’re not alone. We have just the save for you! There are tons of things you can do in Logan, Utah that are very romantic, memorable, and won’t cost you a fortune. If you and your partner are into films and want an uninterrupted, intimate night in each other’s arms, consider booking a night at the Anniversary Inn’s Aphrodite’s Court suite and watching a movie or two.

Sure, you can definitely watch movies at home, but celebrating one’s anniversary should be about new experiences and ensuring that your flame for each other continues to burn bright. The Anniversary Inn has a special room that was built for love: Aphrodite’s Court. This gorgeous suite’s decor was inspired by legends of the Greek Goddess of Love, and is beautifully put together. Upon arriving, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time and into a sumptuous, luxurious getaway. Aphrodite’s Court features a plum and mint green color scheme, intricate gold details, and sweet details that will set the stage for a very romantic night. The suite comes with an expansive bathroom — complete with a jetted tub for two — personal patio, and a super-plush queen sized bed. In addition to these amenities, guests at Aphrodite’s Court will also be treated to a complimentary bottle of sparkling cider and cheesecake.

While you and your spouse relax in Aphrodite’s Court, why not take in a great movie? Almost any movie viewing experience can be made romantic with the addition of a few candles, a soft blanket, and a couple glasses of sparkling cider, champagne, or wine. However, some movies are meant to be watched with the one you love, such as 2004′s “The Notebook”. Other romantic movie selections that would perfectly match the ambiance of Aphrodite’s Court are “The Wedding Singer” (1998), “A Walk to Remember” (2002), “Love Actually” (2003), and “Message in a Bottle” (1999). Watching these romance flicks will be no problem, as Aphrodite’s Court is equipped with a large 42-inch flat screen television and DVD player. The room’s spa tub is the perfect place to head after the movie is over where you can relax and unwind even more.

After you’ve enjoyed a wonderful night of rest, entertainment, and the company of your love, you can enjoy a complimentary breakfast in your suite. A night in watching a movie will be taken to new heights when you celebrate your special day at the Anniversary Inn’s Aphrodite’s Court.

As always, your stay with us includes complimentary sparkling cider and cheesecake along with breakfast in the morning. Call 1-800-324-4152 or 435-752-3443 or make an online reservation here. Contact our Inn Keeper Mary Beth at marybeth@anniversaryinn.com
