People go on an adult vacation to relax and get rid of the day to day stresses of normal life. A vacation is an escape from those stresses and should be a soul cleansing experience.
Often, we add so much stress trying to plan out everything that it takes the first few days of vacation just to unwind from all the pre vacation chaos.
When looking to take an adult vacation there is one important thing for you to remember. This is your vacation! A vacation with the family is about the family, going to a destination wedding or bachelor party is about the bride, groom, best man, etc.
An adult vacation is your time to be selfish and to make sure that you prepare enough to create the vacation of a lifetime. Once you’re here, we at Senses Private Club know that you’ll have a once in a lifetime experience.
However, the responsibility of being prepared for the adventure rests solely in your hands. Check out these 4 steps to help you prepare for your time at Senses.
Step 1: Finding a Great Travel Deal
This might not seem like a huge piece of the puzzle but you would be surprised by the amount of people who feel that they did not get a great deal on their vacation. Senses guests are always overwhelmed by the exotic locale and the great nature of our travel guides; however, it can always sting a little to know that you could have made a better deal.
It’s important to know when to book your airfare. Did you know that the best time to book your flight to the Dominican is about 101 days before your intended travel date? We’re betting that you probably did not know this little factoid.
Along with the airfare, there are other amenities that can be added to your travel package. We’ll address some of those next.
Step 2: Find Activities to Suit Your Needs
We completely understand that your mind might be all consumed by the thought of spending a little time in paradise. Remember that you’re still on vacation and there is a wide variety of activities and options available for you outside the retreat.
Maybe you want a day on our private catamaran? Maybe you want the true VIP treatment with a private villa and helicopter services to and from the airport?
Scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, golf, adventure tours and a wide variety of options are available at Senses and the surrounding areas, Because Senses is located in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic we are lucky to have the best of the best for fun on the island.
There is so much to do here at Senses that it is in your best interest to spend some time thinking about all the options available. Maybe you prefer to just hang out at the pool all day while the bartender keeping the drinks flowing. Either way, if you get frustrated, give us a call or email and we’ll help plan the perfect vacation that meets your requirements and budgetary needs.
The last aspect of planning your vacation is remembering to not over-plan. You’re on vacation, so it’s important to leave a little space for some quality down time. Don’t worry, our staff will make sure you are completely relaxed. It can be more stressful to try to fit every activity in while on vacation. The best part of being away is the stress-free lifestyle that makes for a great vacation.
Step 3: Packing
Packing might not seem like something that really needs to be addressed, especially when you are traveling to a tropical paradise destination. Bathing suit: check. Done. Right?
The reality here is that you’ll probably want to take more than you envision once it gets closer to actually leaving. There are plenty of tutorials online to help you pack like a flight attendant or fold your suit like a dry cleaner would. The basics are to keep the heavy items on the bottom and the lighter ones on top to allow for compression of your suitcase.
Another great tip when it comes to packing, is to start early. About a week before your scheduled departure, take out your suitcase or suitcases that you’ll be traveling with. Spend a little time each day setting aside the clothes and other items that you’ll want to take. You can roll or fold them up (however you choose to pack) and set them on the luggage.
By the time you’re ready to leave, everything is ready to be packed and you have taken the necessary time to really think about what you do and do not need on your trip. This really helps to keep your mind relaxed as your trip approaches.
Step 4: Remember You’re on Vacation
This one seems like a bit of a no-brainer, but it’s important to remember the reason for all your travels. You’re coming to the Caribbean to experience a unique, one of a kind adult vacation experience.
Leave yourself open to new experiences and adventures. Maybe back home you’re used to being in charge or the go-to person at work / home. At Senses, you might find solace in doing a little bit of nothing (for all you Seinfeld fans out there).
Disconnect yourself from your technology. While we do offer free wi-fi here, there is no better way to prepare to enjoy your time at Senses than to commit wholeheartedly to the experience. That means, no checking email, calling business contacts or checking in to make sure things are running smoothly. You should enjoy your vacation to the fullest extent possible.
Life is short and vacations can be even shorter. Take advantage of our tips and your travel experience to Senses Private Club is sure to be the most relaxing, fulfilling experience of your life. We can’t wait to see you here.Share this
