Everyone knows a bond between girlfriends can last a lifetime if you’re lucky. Thankfully, it’s easy to cultivate long-lasting friendships by going on a life-changing trip together. And while Belize has caught the eyes of families, couples, adventurers, and thrill-seekers, it’s also becoming the go-to destination for girls’ trips. Its convenient location – a few hours’ plane ride away from most U.S. airports – and lack of a language barrier make it the ideal pick for a girls’ getaway. It also doesn’t hurt that silk-sand beaches and state-of-the-art wellness experiences are not uncommon. Better yet, you can find both at the celebrity-frequented Naia Resort & Spa in Placencia.
The Belize resort strives to create the ultimate all-inclusive getaway for friends in dire need of exquisite dining, luxurious accommodations, and well-deserved pampering. When it comes to devising the Instagram-worthy girls’ trip of a lifetime, there’s no better choice than Naia Resort & Spa.
Pick an ideal date
Before the revelry commences, though, a conflict-free date is needed. We recommend looking at a date sometime in the fall when the crowds are non-existent but the weather is superb. The summer heat is ebbing away yet hotel and travel deals ramp up. Besides, an end-of-summer vacation at a far-flung destination is the perfect culmination of ‘hot girl summer’. This also gives you and your besties ample time to save as well as coordinate a date that works for everyone on the squad.
As mentioned, Placencia darling Naia Resort knows a thing or two about concocting the perfect girls’ trip. The award-winning Belize resort already champions out-of-the-ordinary travel experiences and its Forever Friends Girls Getaway Package is no different. This five-night stay will be unlike any other exclusive travel experience you’ve encountered. You and three of your friends will share a two-bedroom beachfront beach house overlooking the azure-tinged Caribbean Sea. A photoshoot-ready private plunge pool graces the outdoor deck and the airy open-plan living space allows you and your girlfriends ample space to get glammed for dinner.
For the fashionistas in your group, the space boasts large closets enough to hang up all your coordinated outfits. Oversized, stand-along tubs steal the spotlight in the bathrooms. And for the lucky person commandeering the master bedroom, an indoor/outdoor shower awaits.
Choose bond-building activities
Any proper girls’ trip revolves around the wine-induced experiences that turn into widely shared memories. Naia Resort’s package has the basis of a friends’ getaway down, offering daily local drinks. Yes, you read that right – you and your girlfriends will be sipping on mimosas every morning like you were meant to. But the fun doesn’t end there – Naia had added daily local drinks to your all-inclusive meal plan. And when you’re not nursing cocktails by the pool, a chocolate-making and spice tour is on the agenda. All four of you will learn what it’s like to make the universal sweet treat from scratch, a skill that may not come in handy but is always fun to brag about.
It’s only natural that your girls’ trip would include a trip to Naia Resort’s notable over-the-water spa. Perched atop a lily-clad lagoon, the spa at Naia holds transcendent experiences with it. You and your friends will receive timeless classic massages, facials, and mani-pedi combos that bring back vestiges of sleepovers as a teen (but way better.) The only thing that can top an already it-girl-approved vacation is a sunset cruise. Basking in the evening glow of Belize’s tropical sun with your closest friends at your side is as remarkable as it gets.
