Going on a resort vacation soon? Who can resist a fun and relaxing resort vacation? Every day is filled with fun and new things to do. But a little ahead of time planning can make your resort vacation even better than you imagined. Here are 3 of our favorite tips to help you get ready:
Tip #1: Reserve those “must have” spa services or activities in advance. If you know you simply have got to try their signature seaweed wrap, or play a full 18 holes of golf, try to reserve ahead of time. Some resorts will let you reserve activities ahead of time (a deposit may be required). While you won’t want to do this all the time, and some spontaneity on your vacation is fun, having that reservation during a peak vacation time can mean the difference between getting that service and missing out!
Tip #2: Be sunscreen savvy. Your resort vacation means lots of “fun in the sun” – and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Don’t forget to bring sunscreen for you, and the entire family. Remember to bring sunscreen for both the face and the body. Some cosmetic and beauty products are now made with SPF and these can be an ideal choice especially for your sunny resort vacation. Be sun savvy and bring a hat for each member of the family to enjoy that day in the sun.
Tip #3: Totally unplug (trust us, it’s worth it!). Go without e-mail, cell phone, the Internet? Who can imagine it? But for most of us, we stay very “plugged in,” checking our e-mail, cell phones and watching our stocks, the weather or getting that cute pair of shoes on the ‘net. If you can’t remember the last time you unplugged from technology, its time to do it more than ever for this resort vacation. Can’t imagine going without for a whole long weekend or full week? Try planned mini tech-breaks where you check your cell phone or the Internet, then go back to enjoying that beautiful resort lifestyle!
