One of our favorite things about Jacksonville life is the proximity to so many high quality hotels and resorts, which makes staycationing a great option for couples looking to relax and unwind for a few days. We’ve rounded up five of our favorite romantic staycation spots in the Jacksonville area that would be perfect for you and your partner, no matter what budget you’re on.

Casa Marina

This historic Jax Beach resort will have you feeling like you stepped back in time in the best way: it’s an iconic and luxurious piece of Florida history with just 23 rooms plus a rooftop bar and upscale restaurant. Their picturesque courtyard is a favorite spot for weddings and other special occasions, taking full advantage of their beachfront location while still maintaining the old world, boutique European hotel vibes that they strive to maintain across the property. 691 1st Street N Jacksonville Beach, FL; // @casamarinahotel

Omni Amelia Island Resort

A gorgeous outpost on Amelia Island, the Omni boasts a ton oceanfront rooms, most with balconies, 9 on site restaurants, a pair of mammoth heated pools, a fitness center, and more. Book a Segway, paddleboard, or kayak tour to get a new perspective on the area’s gorgeous natural views, or knock a few balls around on their award winning golf course. Whatever you and your partner are into, the Omni’s got something to make your staycation something special. 39 Beach Lagoon Road, Fernandina Beach, FL; // @omniameliaisland

Southbank Hotel Jacksonville Riverwalk

Located right on the St. Johns River, this quality spot has all the amenities of a fine resort but is a bit more affordable than other options on this list. Dinner at the riverside seafood and steak-focused Chart House is a must, a romantic end to a day spent lounging by the pool or exploring the riverwalk and the rest of the gorgeous Southbank neighborhood. 1515 Prudential Dr, Jacksonville, FL; // @southbankjax

One Ocean Resort & Spa

With discounted rates for Florida and Georgia restaurants, you can easily book a room at the swanky One Ocean Resort & Spa for way less than you’d expect. Take in jaw-dropping ocean views from the balcony of your room before enjoying perks like discounted spa services, free bike rentals, and dinner at their well-reviewed modern American seafood restaurant Azurea. 1 Ocean Blvd, Atlantic Beach, FL; // @oneoceanresort

The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island

If you’re really looking to go all out and impress your partner, there are few better staycation options in town than the Ritz-Carlton on Amelia Island, a luxury resort offering unparalleled amenities. You’ll barely want to leave your room, since every unit has a private balcony and ocean view, as well as extremely nice bathrooms and decadent room service options. Perhaps the only thing that can convince you to leave will be to experience their acclaimed hammock massage or to check out their 18 hole golf course. 4750 Amelia Island Pkwy, Fernandina Beach, FL; // @ritzcarltonameliaisland
