The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Amelia Island is now taking reservations for the Couples Chocolate and Pomegranate Wrap. This Valentines ritual ($650 for two, 2 ½ hours, www.ritzcarlton.com/ameliaisland) begins with a Honey Vanilla Milk Bath, then you're both covered in chocolate a natural aphrodisiac and cocooned together in a thermal blanket for the Chocolate-Pomegranate Wrap.
