There is nothing better for cleansing the soul than a good laugh with your best friends on a girls’ getaway.
Escaping from daily responsibilities, bonding and indulging in some pampering are reasons why girlcations are booming. Ste. Anne's is a top destination for girls who just want to have fun – and relax! Friends, nourishing treatments and seriously-delicious food actually feed and heal the body, mind and soul, and leave you feeling blissfully happy and calm.
Whatever the occasion – a milestone birthday, a bachelorette party to celebrate a walk down the aisle, a promotion, or simply us-time – there’s no better place to unwind, de-stress and reconnect than in this nurturing, tranquil environment. Indulge with a luxurious massage, a nourishing seaweed wrap, wellness classes or a visit to the eucalyptus steam room. Or all of the above!
If you need some convincing to get out of town with your best girlfriends, take a page out Maureen Davis’ playbook. The Toronto mom and entrepreneur is planning a variety of short getaways to make her big 40th birthday ultra memorable. To kick off the next decade of her life, she is doing something special every month of this year starting on her big day April 9th. Ste Anne’s is on her agenda!
For Davis, short girlfriend trips are an investment in friendship, family and sanity, and are often. “You will come back feeling refreshed, recharged and your family will thank you. You will have to move a few mountains to make it happen but it is entirely possible and worth it, and it’s good for your kids and partner to miss you.”
No one understands one another like BFFs. “They are the people that you can be 100% yourself with, that you can share a hotel bed with and will tell you honestly if your dress is too tight. They are family and they love you as much as you love them. How could you not celebrate with your BFFs?”
Here’s another reason to book some girl time: It’s not only good for the soul, but the heart too. Did you know that women who take two vacations a year are 50% less likely to develop heart disease than those who vacation rarely or not at all? So take heart and head to the spa; it continues to be the top girls’ destination, followed by the beach, a shopping trip, cruise, culinary adventure and active vacation.
Ste. Anne’s is the perfect destination to bond with family or friends. It’s heaven on earth and the perfect place to chill, reconnect, and share in laughter and love. In this busy world, getting grown children or old friends to commit to time away from hectic schedules can be a challenge, but they never say no to Ste. Anne’s. It’s an offer they can’t refuse.
Make time for realignment. To self-nourish. Your outer reality reflects your inner focus, energy and wellness – and the demanding realities of life may be draining, overwhelming and unhealthy. Time to revitalize, re-energize, and relax in a deeply-centred and compassionate place.
Gather up those university roommates or far-flung female family members for a long-overdue, stress-relieving spa getaway. Leave your cell phone in the car and let dad handle the kids. A few days of pampering will kick start a healthier lifestyle and you’ll feel like you’re on top of the world.
