Is love in the air? Take to the skies for this outrageous Valentine's date
When it comes to romance, is there such a thing as going too over-to-the-top for the one you love? What if that involved jet setting to the Caribbean for just a day of fun in the sun?
If you want to enjoy a Valentine's Day lunchtime date in paradise, it isn't impossible-- and you can be home in time for dinner. And while there is a lot of travel involved, getting to this destination was half the fun! Between a private jet, a beachfront paradise, and an organic garden, Fox News discovered one of the craziest Valentine's experiences available this year.

Private is the way to go.
This over-the-top getaway begins with a trip on your very own plane. Think private jets are out of your reach? New companies like XoJet, JetSmarter, and JetSuite allow you let you buy memberships to use other people's private jets at a fraction of the typical cost. A full day in your own jet can still cost around $60,000.
No worries, no waiting.
After boarding a plane with no security lines and no waiting on the tarmac, a flight from New York to Grand Cayman takes just three hours. But don't worry - you'll have your own private flight attendant to ensure you enjoy the flight in style.
Up, up and away.
When you're on a private jet you'll never have to lean over someone to look out the window as you land. The plane touches down on the small island of Cayman Brac.
Welcome to paradise.
It's not just the private flight that gets you in and out more quickly. When you're the only guests landing, you'll have a fast and easy customs experience.
Time for a beach beverage.
Now time for some fun in the sun. Lovers will arrive at Soleil D'or Beach Club by 11:30 a.m. to relax in the sand with a starfruit rum cocktail.
Cheers... to more cocktails.
After an hour in the sun, it's time to head over to Mango restaurant for another refreshing cocktail before lunch. What could be better than fresh liqueurs made from local ingredients?
The delicious spread.
Enjoy a lunch of house made charcuterie to fully indulge-- Valentines Day is not the time to be healthy.
Sip the next one poolside.
After lunch, it's time to hit up the pool and enjoy the beautiful view of Cayman Brac's unique limestone bluff.
A food lover's secret garden.
Take a tour of Soleil D'Or's organic garden. It's a treat for any foodie to see where your meal really comes from.
Hit the road again-- in style.
And by 4pm you are ready to takeoff again. Wherever you're headed, you can be home and done by dinner time.
Jet setting not just for Valentine's Day?
It might just be an extravagant fantasy for Valentine’s Day, but there are realistic ways to take part of the magic. XoJet, JetSmarter, and JetSuite offer deals as low as $1,000 for sharing spots on private planes. And of course you can always take a regular flight to Cayman Brac to check out the delicious food and organic gardens at Soleil D'Or.
