Looking for a way to recharge and bond with your closest friends? Planning a girls’ trip might be the perfect solution. Here are some tips to help you plan the ultimate girls’ getaway from travel expert Chelsy Briere of Canadian travel company Hosted Villas.
- First, where to? Consider a location that offers a variety of activities for everyone to enjoy, such as a beach resort, a spa retreat or a big city with plenty of nightlife.
- Next, choose a date that works for everyone and make sure your group has plenty of notice. This way everyone can clear their schedules and plan for work, childcare and other responsibilities.
- Once the location and date are set, create an itinerary. Brainstorm a list of activities and experiences that everyone wants to do and make sure there’s a good mix of relaxation and adventure. For example, you could plan a day at the spa followed by a night out on the town, or a morning yoga class followed by a hike in a nearby park.
- When it comes to accommodations, consider renting a vacation home rather than booking separate hotel rooms. A private place allows everyone stay together and creates a more intimate and relaxed atmosphere. Look for plenty of space and amenities such as a full kitchen, outdoor seating area and comfortable bedrooms so you can really go all out.
- Finally, don’t forget the little details that can make a big difference. Bring a curated selection of snacks and drinks to enjoy during downtime, create a playlist of everyone’s favourite songs and pack some matching outfits or accessories for group photos.
With a little planning and coordination, a girls’ getaway can be the perfect way to unwind, have fun and strengthen friendships.
