As we get older, it can be challenging to maintain adult friendships with work, family, and other commitments taking up our time. However, spending time with your best friends can provide a much-needed escape from the stresses of everyday life and remind us of the importance of self-care which is why planning a girls' getaway should be on your to-do list. If you're ready to jet off for a well-deserved week of bonding, pampering and relaxation, check out our guide on how to plan the best girls' vacay that will have you and your besties creating fond memories that you'll reminisce about for years to come.

1. Find the right destination and accommodation

No girls’ getaway would be complete without spending time lounging around and chatting about anything and everything with each other, hence it’s important to find accommodations that are just right for your long-awaited heart-to-heart chats. However, it’s important to take into consideration everyone’s destination preferences before you embark on a hunt for the ideal getaway spot. If you and your girlfriends would prefer to soak up the sun together, Club Med offers a variety of sunny destinations with our all-inclusive sun holidays. But if chilling in a winter wonderland sounds more like everyone’s idea of fun, we also have a wide selection of all-inclusive holiday packages at scenic resorts amidst the snowy peaks of Asia and Europe’s most breath-taking mountain ranges.

2. Plan activities for the best experiences

When planning the itinerary for any getaway that involves a large group, it’s essential to consider everyone’s interests and preferences to ensure that everyone comes away from the vacation with the best memories and experiences. With that in mind, start off by gathering input from your friends and create a group itinerary that includes a good mix of activities. Keep it balanced with plenty of time allocated for adventure, relaxation and alone time as well. At Club Med’s destination holidays, you and your friends will have a plethora of activities to choose from ranging from sports and fitness classes, to spa time and nature trips. Depending on the destination, Club Med also has a unique array of offerings such as cooking classes, wine tastings, and cultural excursions, so don’t forget to take advantage of that when you book any of our all-inclusive holiday packages!

3. Make time to relax

While it can be thrilling to be able to spend time together with your besties after so long, it’s important to realise that not everyone has the same energy levels or social battery reserves. Hence, it’s important to remember to make time to relax amidst all the excitement. Consider scheduling in a day doing absolutely nothing and just enjoying the gourmet dining options together, or even try out Club Med’s wellness activities such as visiting the spa for massages together. Alternatively, if dancing the night away or doing physically strenuous sports isn’t quite your cup of tea, you can organise a women’s weekend retreat with Club Med’s wellness retreat holidays. Doing a women’s weekend retreat with your best friends is a whole different experience than doing it alone, and it’s a great idea if all of you are seeking to embark on a journey of self-reflection but feel awkward about going alone. Not only will you have an amazing shared experience together, you’ll be able to emotionally support each other and encourage each other’s personal growth.

Taking a holiday trip together can be a great opportunity to renew the bonds of friendship, but don’t let the connection fade out over time. Plan online catch-ups with your girlfriends, create a group chat if you don’t already have one, send them surprise care packages — or if you have time, organise another get-together. You can even start planning future getaway trips with each other while the memories of all your favourite moments are still fresh!

Whether you’re looking to create more beautiful memories with your family, friends or partner, Club Med has an array of all-inclusive holiday packages that are perfect for your next family vacation or couples getaway. Taking a well-deserved breather with your loved ones doesn’t have to include the hassle of planning every nitty gritty detail — check out the myriad all-inclusive holiday options available at Club Med today and let us take care of everything for you!
