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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
