Enter Lovesprk, Malaysia's first date concierge portal that has the answer for all the time-starved couples out there hoping to keep their romance alive
Lovesprk is a members' only service that specialises in offering pre-planned exclusive experiences combined with concierge assistance
It will take care of all the details like planning and making reservations, enable romantics to enhance their dates with details such as bouquets of flowers, a specially-picked gift or a chauffeur-driven limousine for the night, all with a single click. It is created to answer the question: “let’s go out and do something fun!” for couples.vulcanpost.com
Co-founder Tanuja Rajah, who founded Lovesprk with her husband, says:
“We want to take all the hard work out of the process of keeping your romance alive by offering fully packaged date ideas – from luxurious to fun and sometimes, even a little quirky.”
“Adults in committed relationships want their love lives to be great. When the relationship is new, we put in so much effort to create the ‘perfect’ date.”
But Tanuja says life gets in the way and going on amazing dates becomes a thing of the past.
“I believe that a great date can be the spark of something magical and an essential ingredient to lasting love… but people always say, ‘It takes too much time and hassle to plan’. That's why we created Lovesprk. We remove the hassle element so couples can focus on what matters: spending time together and creating memories.”
But is 'hassle-free romance' really romance?
This might seem like a great idea at first, but does it take the romance out of planning a date? After all, it truly is the thought that counts – if no effort is put in, can it be really called ‘romance’?
Rajah believes so: In an ideal world, we’d all have the time and mental real estate to plan romantic night outs. But the truth is that this isn’t happening much. Lovesprk wants to change that. We’re just changing the method – not the end result. And the end result is that more couples will be heading out, creating new memories and building stronger relationships.
Heading online for dating options is a natural move for Malaysians. Vulcan Post offers the juice:
A record 67% of households in Malaysia have access to the Internet and this figure is rising faster than the world average.
The adoption of social media has also shown significant growth over the last few years, with currently, 1 in 3 Malaysians being Facebook users.
Lovesprk, currently providing 11 different dates for its users, prides itself on creating experiences available exclusively on Lovesprk
It’s a members’ only service that specialises in offering pre-planned exclusive experiences combined with concierge assistance. For instance, it will take care of all the details like planning and making reservations.
Lovesprk’s concierge service will enable romantics to enhance their dates with details such as bouquets of flowers, a specially picked gift or a chauffeur-driven limousine for the night, all with a single click.
Its makers are selective about its vendors because each date is about quality
“We handpick and design all of our dates because they will make great dates – not just because the businesses involved are trying to boost sales by offering discounts.
“Our main purpose is to help strengthen relationships and create new memories by offering amazing experiences. These experiences could range from a luxurious dinner and spa to a romantic getaway to even something a little quirkier like tarot card reading.”
Lovesprk earns by receiving a commission from each 'date experience' purchased
Their concierge service – which couples can choose “to enhance an existing pre-planned date, or to create a bespoke date from scratch with the help of Date Consultants” – comes at an additional cost. Their goal now is to expand this service across Malaysia, and had inked a partnership with Korean dating app Between earlier this year to accelerate this.techinasia.com
