Resorts nowadays are no longer just a place to keep your travelling bags and lock yourself in a room to sleep after a tiring day of long walks and sightseeing. Depending on the type of facilities and amenities being offered in a resort (plus your creativity), there are countless ways of leisurely activities that you can do and maximize what you can get out of what you paid for the duration of your stay.
You can find many resorts with different themes in various parts of the world: tropical, Japanese, Mediterranean, and so on. Now, as soon as you’ve decided where to go, and have made all the necessary arrangements, it’s time to think of the things that you would want to do in your stay. Here are some of them.
Sports and Recreation – Commonly, there’s a pool or beach. Most resorts provide a mini-gym, badminton, basketball, and volleyball courts, among others. And if you’re with family and friends, you can organize a sports fest. Play race games, mind games, different types of board games, for a fun-filled day or weekend while promoting fitness and health.
Romantic Getaway – You can have prior arrangements with the staff, and prepare for a surprise romantic stay. Nothing beats a candlelight dinner by the pool or in a secluded area with a nice violin playing on the background. Sumptuous meal, a nice bottle of fine wine, capped off by a decadent dessert, is just heaven. Or take everything in your room for some cuddling with your partner for a night full of love and affection. Planning to get married? Then propose to her in a well-thought out night just for her.
Family Bonding – With your job eating up most of your time and energy, and the kids being at school or being with friends – a nice family vacation can be fulfilling. Leave all the negativities behind, have this time to become updated of what’s going on with each member’s life, have nice sit down meals together, sing together, whatever you can think of, and simply enjoy each other’s company.
Quiet Time – Stress can put a toll on one’s health – mental or physical. It is therefore a good thing to have a “Me time” once in a while to reconnect with oneself and be rejuvenated in order to be more efficient and productive in the daily dealings of life. Read a book, get as much sleep as you want, meditate, enjoy the waters, the food, scenery, and you’ll know it’s going to be all worth it.
