Make the most of your staycation
Your staycation can get that much more relaxing than a real getaway, with these hassle-free tips!
Less is more
On a staycation, we recommend going supremely light. Pack just the amount of clothes and necessities to match the duration of your stay. The key is - the less you carry, the lighter you will be when you arrive home, ensuring your trip is easy, leading to the ultimate relaxation you totally deserve. Think: A backpack and A shoulder bag. The shoulder bag is ideal for a one-night stay, whereas the backpack is classic for two or three nights.
Leave room for spontaneity
Planning has its perks. But spontaneity turns the experience up a notch - especially on a staycation! Leave a giant room for spontaneity, unexpected inspiration, or even a humble siesta. You might discover a unique massage gem right in the middle of the desert, an adventure park that will make you giddy with excitement, or a hole-in-the-wall coffee shop brewing the meanest coffee in the city!
Find an excuse to experience
A weekend staycation is a fine excuse to spring for an indulgent & often exciting experience that otherwise would be coined as rare. You can book a boat ride, for example, to see where you live from a different perspective. Other options include exploring interactive cooking stations, swimming with the dolphins, & a range of wonders worthy of giving a shot, especially when you're off on such a short getaway.
Take time off, literally!
A staycation is a perfect way to switch off from the daily grind, unplug, & enjoy a compact break that could otherwise be ignored in a daily routine. Slow the pace & snap out of autopilot mode. Find new things to do in & around your hotel, escape the grid a little, sample varied cuisines & become a tourist with a new pair of eyes. Make sure you make the most of the hotel amenities & pamper yourself silly. Really, take time off!
