We don’t need a therapist, we just need time away with the girls! Nothing recharges and invigorates quite like a girls getaway.
Where to go, to get the most bang for your buck?
We need luxury accommodation to aid relaxation, with great bars and restaurants to help us unwind. Fabulous shops and boutiques are a must to indulge in, as are Day Spas to remove any last traces of stress. Finally, manicured golf courses that look like you’ve just stepped into the set of The Truman Show. A Gin & Tonic at the end of the day as the sun sets, and we’ve got the ideal girls getaway.
California, home to the bright lights of LA & the desert oasis of Palm Springs is the perfect destination. With direct flights from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, on a range of airlines California is one of the easiest US states for us Aussies to visit. Just remember to arrive with plenty of room in your suitcase.
Explore world class museums, sip a cocktail on a rooftop bar and shop with your own personal stylist. Visit the beaches of Malibu and Santa Monica with a triple shot machiatto in one hand and mobile phone in the other. Live like a local in California’s liveliest city.
Shopping is an art form in LA. Ritzy Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills is a must (even if it’s just window shopping). Nearby, The Grove is a luxurious shopping centre adjacent to the Original Farmers Market. Shopping, while fun on it’s own is taken to another level when you are accompanied by your own personal stylist. No more struggling to put looks together, or trying to work out how to dress best for your shape. Shopping with a personal stylist helps to make the most of a few key pieces.
Just a couple of hours away by road is the desert oasis Palm Springs. This playground of the rich and famous, with mountain and desert vistas just screams girls getaway. With a staggering 110 golf courses, some of the best are at La Quinta. The resort is also home to 41 swimming pools, along with restaurants, bars boutiques and an award winning Day Spa. It’s the perfect place to stay.
With the amazing views and seriously manicured golf courses, you can see why Palm Springs is one of the most celebrated golf destinations in the US. Play golf in the morning and then spend the afternoon being pampering in the day spa, or hit the shops. Nearby the largest collection of luxury outlets in California can be found at Cabazon & Desert Hills Premium Outlets. El Paseo has boutiques, galleries and shops trendy enough to have been given the nickname The Rodeo Drive of the Desert.
There’s so much to do on a girls getaway to Los Angeles & Palm Springs. This really is just the tip of the iceberg. We’d love you to join us on the next G&T girls getaway to California.
