Staycations are always alluring. Even though you’re still in your home country, being in a completely different, and relaxed, environment changes your entire mindset. You can simply relax and step back from work, or perhaps play tourist in your own backyard, or even party hard knowing you have a plush large bed to fall into afterwards - and you don’t even need to make it the next morning. Win!
So really, a staycation is your little escapade, to rejuvenate before getting back to the daily grind. We think it’s the next best option from a holiday when you don’t have the luxury of time to travel.
Staycations are also more purse-friendly than jetting halfway across the globe, and what with no traveling time incurred...the process is relatively stress-free.
Itching for a staycation already? We’ve put together a list of staycation packages from hotels on our little red dot that you should check out. Ranging from couples packages to family deals, there’s definitely something for everyone.
Lavender Spa Staycation at Hotel Jen Tanglin
Lavender is great for inducing sweet slumber and at Hotel Jen Tanglin, they’ve put together a staycation filled with lavender for your partner and you. Relax in a lavender-infused club room with organic lavender products that are air flown in from France. We’re talking lavender anti-fatigue eye serum, refreshing tonic leg gel, protective hand cream and more. Not pampering enough? How about a lavender facial treatment for two with a bouquet of dried lavender imported from Provence, France.
Yes, all the other shenanigans are gifted as well - complimentary breakfast, free-flow spirits with small dinner bites, midday culinary treats AND pressing of one piece of clothing. If all of these doesn’t excite you, I don’t know what does.
