Evocative, cheeky and oh-so-indulgent, the heart-shaped tub has a special place in the story of the Pocono Mountains.
Invented in 1963 by the former owner of Cove Haven Resort, the tempting tubs-for-two were an instant hit with couples, adorning rooms and suites across the Pocono Mountains during the region’s run as “Honeymoon Capital of the World.” As time passed, accommodations evolved with the interests of visitors, but the heart-shaped tubs remained.
For more than 50 years, heart-shaped tubs have lured lovers at adult-only destinations like Cove Haven Resort, Paradise Stream Resort and Pocono Palace Resort. Through renovations, expansions and countless travel trends, the tubs have endured, inspiring romance and reminiscence amid modern luxury.
With a nod to the romantic rooms of the past, the new Kalahari Resorts and Conventions features heart-shaped tubs in its deluxe honeymoon suites. The 457-room indoor waterpark resort opened in the Pocono Mountains in summer 2015.
From famed beginnings to new frontiers, the heart-shaped tub has brought a lot of love to the Pocono Mountains, and as history suggests, it’s here to stay. Experience the allure of this Pocono Mountains mainstay! Sink into a heart-shaped tub at one of these resorts, or cozy up in a couple’s suite for a romantic stay in the Pocono Mountains.
