5 good excuses for one last getaway in 2016

Everyone has their talents. And the ability to justify a holiday is one of mine 😉 So I present to you the five types of hotel stays that make perfect sense to book and enjoy before the end of the year.

  1. A health retreat

The party season might officially start with Melbourne Cup Day but if you’re already a bit over bubbles, feeling a bit *hiccup* lethargic on your morning run or perhaps burning the candle at both ends to keep up with crazy end-of-year work demands, a virtuous healthy getaway might be just what you need to thrive rather than survive through the last few weeks of 2016.

Got cash to splash? Why not jump on a plane and head to Bali! COMO Shambala Estate offers a range of retreat programs that will have you feeling like a million bucks. Because you’re worth it right.

  1. A Christmas party stay… or escape 😉

The office Christmas party might be the work social occasion of the year but fighting taxi droughts and surging Uber prices isn’t the most fun way to spend the early hours of the morning. Be the envy of your colleagues and book a hotel stay close to your party digs. A fluffy hotel bed to rest your weary head followed up by room service will have you patting yourself on the back for #doingitright. Don’t forget to ask for a late check-out!

Alternatively, if the thought of spending any unnecessary time with your work colleagues has you cringing, ‘accidently’ booking a long weekend break for the same night as your work shindig will get you off the hook.

  1. A city break

As much of the corporate crowd stops travelling towards the end of the year, CBD hotels have more availability, which often translates into bargain rates for you to snap up. A staycation at a flash city hotel will recharge your batteries before the end of the year. Book in for a massage at the day, enjoy a fancy cocktail at the bar and eat all of the things at the breakfast buffet.

  1. Christmas

So many options here! Maybe your family lives interstate or overseas, and you haven’t spent Christmas together for a while? Be impulsive, book those tickets and earn major brownie points for making the extra effort for family time.

Alternatively, if the thought of December 25 with the relos has you breaking into a cold sweat, a Christmas travel adventure might be just what you need 😉

  1. New Year’s Eve

Avoid the fireworks crowds and take the pressure off NYE being the best party night of the year by getting out of town. It’s not too late to book a getaway for this time of the year, but you’ll need to be quick. Be flexible with your location and let the deals guide where you go. You never know where you might end up kicking off 2017.
