Our Top Tips for Organising Relaxing Weekends Away
You do not have to follow every suggestion we make – you may well already have your own ideas concerning some of the areas we touch upon – but it is worth reading through the whole list to make sure you do not forget anything important.
- Discuss Your Preferences – Even if you live with your partner and have done for many years, it is a good idea to discuss what you both hope to get out of your weekend away. If you have dreams of speeding down rapids on a white-water raft and your partner fancies relaxing in a country spa, it is better to find this out sooner rather than later.
- Set a Budget – Whether you are considering weekend getaways in Perth or somewhere more remote, you should set a budget for your trip before you do anything else. As well as helping you to focus your attention on destinations that are affordable, it will help you to relax once you are actually away. If you are continually worrying about how much your holiday is costing, you will not be able to enjoy it to the full.
- Research the Amenities – Let us assume for a moment that you have decided you would love to spend a couple of days at a country spa retreat, recharging your batteries and relaxing completely. If this is the case, the first thing you need to check when evaluating the different destinations you find online is what type of spa treatments they offer and whether they are available to both men and women. The same goes for all the different types of WA weekend getaways you may consider: check that the destinations on your shortlist have all the amenities you require and make sure that they cater to both men and women.
- Choose a Mode of Transport – If you are planning to visit Chimes Spa Retreat from Perth, the fastest way to get here is probably to fly to Albany Airport then arrange onward transportation to cover the last 50 or so kilometres. On the other hand, if you are planning to visit somewhere much nearer, you will probably want to drive. Whatever the case, the sooner you make your choice, the sooner you can plan what you each want to pack.
The more effort you put into planning your weekend away, the less chance there is of something going wrong. If you decide that you would like to treat yourself to a couple of days at Chimes we would, of course, be delighted to help you make all the necessary arrangements.
