Choosing Who To Invite

Birds of a feather – Choosing the right mix of girlfriends for your getaway is key to its success. Get the mix right and you’ll have a great adventure that you’ll talk about for years to come.

Get it wrong however and you could see a clash of prima donnas, hear doors slam and spend the entire weekend in damage control mode.

Our advice is to think of the friends you have and choose the most fun and gentle souls as your travel buddies – this will give your girls weekend the best chance of harmony and success

When To Book Your Getaway?

Best Places To Go For A Girls Getaway

Where To Ladies? – Choosing a destination is a task best accomplished by involving all participants. Yes, we know! It’s going to get crazy and yes, you might need to pull a location out of a hat in case of a draw, but at least you have all played a part in a fair process.

Your location will depend mainly on budget, how many days you plan to stay away, everyone’s geographical location and of course the type of experience your group of friends enjoys.

A rural retreat? Urban utopia? Adrenalin Capital? Relaxation Central? To keep everyone involved and talking, set up a Facebook group, create a Facebook girls getaway event and let everyone share in the planning and the anticipation.

A room at the Inn? – In our humble opinion, choosing an apartment or holiday home over individual hotel rooms will make a significant difference to your experience. AirBNB are also a great option where you can often get a whole house for a smaller price.

We would recommend having all your friends stay under the same roof.

Nothing brings people together quite like food, so ensure there’s a decent sized kitchen and plenty of room for everyone to stretch out and be comfortable.

Follow The Leader

So this is a big one, who in your group is best at organising?

If there are four of you, and you all try to organise it, guaranteed it will all fall apart.

So pick a leader, of course let everyone have input into ideas of what to do and where to go and the final decisions, but choose someone from you who will do the group bookings, handle the money and book the accommodation.

This will make everything much easier and will flow better, and will ensure that your getaway will be a lot easier to organise.

Something For Every Budget

Be budget friendly – The last thing you need is for money to cause tension among your group.

Keep the girls getaway affordable and you will also keep everyone happy. Affordability also increases the chances of your girl friends being able to pay their deposits / balances on time thus avoiding embarrassing situations and reminders.

As mentioned above, staying in shared accommodation will split the cost – so not only is this a more social way to enjoy each other’s company – it also makes good financial sense.

Best Things To Do On A Girls Weekend

What does everyone want to do? – Well, let’s be honest! Most girls’ weekends away are about shopping, eating out and pampering – lots and lots of pampering!

And who can blame you?

Mobile spa services such as those offered by Ripple Massage and Beauty are available in most Australian cities. Think of Ripple as a mobile day spa that comes to you wherever you are. Ripple’s variety of spa treatments will leave you spoiled for choice.

The best thing about in home pampering treatments is that there are no hassles. No driving to a particular place in unfamiliar streets, no looping around looking for a parking spot – best of all, following your treatment or massage you can relax immediately in your own comfortable surroundings.

Pampering visit aside, and depending on your location, there should be no shortage of activities to enjoy with your friends. Take a cooking or art class, go on a nature walk, hire a kayak or attend a concert together – and you can do all this without agonizing about school pick up, business meetings or grocery shopping!

Downtime – One hot tip though is not to overbook your girls weekend away with so many activities that you all feel more stressed than when you went. Put some time in the weekend for people to just chill and relax, read a book, watch TV in their pyjamas, whatever they may need.

Especially Mums are so used to being on the go all the time, it is pure luxury to just wake up and having nothing to do. So anything you do book, run it past everyone first and have a less is more approach. 

Amazing right? So, start planning your girls getaway now and call us when you get there!

Oh my goodness, the BEST girls getaway we have ever been on.

We loved Roschelle and Terri and the treatments they did for us were superb.

Plus so friendly, they were really lovely people and we all felt super comfortable.

We are all Mums, so getting away for a couple of days is a big deal for us, and the pampering just really topped everything off.

Thank you again for making it so easy to book and please thank the girls again.
