Girls Weekend Getaway Ideas

  1. Spa-going
    A great way to spend quality time with your friends is with a nice pampering session at a Day Spa. Whether you are looking for a full detox or just a bit of pampering, ask any potential spa about specials for duos or groups. You will come home fully relaxed after such a girls weekend getaway.
  2. Relax by the Pool or Beach
    Need lots of time to chat and catch up? Then don’t pack your schedule too tight but have some chill out time at the pool or beach. Consider renting a condo or a house, many are available even for just a few days in prime shore locations. Ocean or lake-side, there are lots of options to choose from. Don’t forget to take some good reading, nice music and lots to talk about with your friends.

    Thanks for the tips! Great article.


    • Hello Lina,
      High Tea is a great idea for a Girls Weekend Getaway – and why not combine it with some spa-pampering before? I am sure you will have a great time!

    • Hi Cade,
      very happy to hear that your wife likes the ideas. And thanks for the idea, I will put together some ideas for a guys weekend getaway. Anything that you like to do that you want to see on that list?


  4. Hello Weekend Getaway Ideas,
    I love having a girls weekend away. I have done a few – yep eating Dinner without the kids asking questions while I am talking is fantastic!!! The Day Spa is the best bonus and the sleep in is fantastic. Gosh I wish I was having another Girls Weekend coming up!!!



    • Hi Lisa,
      great to hear that you enjoyed your Girls Weekend Getaways so far. I am sure that you will do some more in the future. Why not try a different idea from our list? And don’t forget to let us know how you enjoyed it!


  5. Thanks for the information on a Girls Weekend Getaway. It has been a while since I’ve been on one of these – but always have a great time even if it’s just overnight. I especially like a cocktail night thrown in. Everybody buys the makings of one cocktail – everyone makes their fav cocktail for others to try – by the end of the night there are some interesting new cocktail inventions!! Loads of fun!


  6. I haven’t been on a girls weekend getaway for so long – actually I think it was when my youngest was 1 (she is now 13) and my girlfriend and I went to Fiji for 10 days. I guess that I am due to go again.


    • Hi Jackie,

      you definitely deserve to have another girls weekend getaway. And by the sounds of it your kids are old enough to be ok with it :)
