Arriving at a luxury villa for a weeklong stay is one of the top summer experiences you can have, especially if you’re in an exotic location and surrounded by close friends. But if you don’t have a well thought out plan for each day, you may turn a potentially epic holiday into a tiring blur filled with generic activities.
It’s time to spice up your luxury villa group vacation, so get inspired by considering some of the activities listed below.
Ask your friends about what they want by creating a wish-list survey
Traveling in a group can get complicated as people will want to try different things. So before you go, send out a wish-list survey to all of your friends and let them vote on top activities you’ll want to do in the villa. This is also a great time to think about all of the special items you will need to pack in order to put your plan into action.
Make the most out of your pool by introducing fun activities
A majestic infinity pool with a breathtaking ocean view is always best, but it’s not a must-have, as any type of pool is fantastic for exciting summer activities. Pool volleyball is a classic and all you need is a net and two teams; pool racing is perfect if you’re feeling competitive and want to get a bit of exercise; and if you want to take it to the next level, go for water balloons and water gun games that will surely cause a lot of commotion.
Have a ton of fun during an action-packed gaming night
If your villa comes with a proper gaming room then you’re in luck as it’ll likely have a pool table, table tennis, dartboard, and various board games. You may even organize your very own card game evening, with fizzy drinks, cigars, and the whole shebang. This idea will definitely appeal to anyone who has ever tried classic online blackjack or Texas Hold ’em poker, games that are easy to get the hang of, yet bring an air of opulence into the room.
Learn new, exciting recipes with the help of your villa chef
One of the best perks of staying in a luxury villa is that all of the food will be provided by your very own private chef. That’s especially the case in South American or South East Asian countries where you will find many exciting new dishes and ingredients. If you have foodies in your group, take advantage of this special opportunity and ask your chef to organize a cooking class for you. Your newfound knowledge will allow you to bring some of your favourite holiday tastes back home and learn about local customs at the same time.
Stretch out your whole body during an intimate yoga session
While partying, gaming and eating are all fun to indulge in whilst staying at a luxury villa, sometimes it’s worth your while to take care of your mind and body as well. To stretch out your body and balance your mood, you can organize a daily yoga session with an experienced teacher. The entire group doesn’t have to participate, but it’s always great to have this opportunity as doing yoga in a beautiful setting will allow you to come back from your stay better rested.
Organize a relaxing spa treatment
A yoga session is great but it requires quite a lot of effort, so if you want to completely relax and forget about the rest of the world, make sure to get a massage before the end of your stay. The best part is that you don’t have to go anywhere as therapists are used to bringing their foldable massage tables and other gear to the client’s location. Your only job will be to lay down and stay still, as your body gets enveloped in waves of pleasurable sensations.
These are just some of the ideas you can set in motion during your next stay in a luxurious villa. Take note, but also use your imagination to come up with something unique to the place you’re renting, as well as the country that you’re staying in.
