Holidays are all about letting your hair down, putting up your feet and having a ball of a time, away from the humdrum of monotony and constant work. However, the definition of taking a break is different from one person to another. For a few of us, a holiday goes hand-in-hand with exploring new places, indulging in some retail therapy or visiting family and friends. But, sometimes, a day spent doing absolutely nothing is one of the best ways to unwind and relax. Let us show you how!
Become a couch potato
A TV might be referred to as an “idiot box” to the outside world but inside your room, it is your best friend. Make up for all those movies you’ve missed and catch up with the soap operas your friends keep talking about by parking yourself in front of the telly. From heart-warming rom-coms to dramatic superhero movies, take your pick and relax in the comfort of your bed.
Have a bubble of a time
Nothing compares to the feeling of soaking yourself in a tub of warm water and soothing your nerves as you sit back and de-stress. Calm your senses with the goodness of heavenly bath salts or elevate your mood with aromatic bath bombs – the choice is yours. Better yet, treat yourself with a glass of champagne and disconnect from the world.
Sleep like a baby
They say that the best things in life are free and one of those “things” is a solid dose of deep sleep. Crawl into your cloud-like bed with crisp white sheets and a velvety soft comforter and dive into the world of dreams as your head hits the fluffy pillows. Enhance your sleep by listening to some calming music which works wonders after a long-haul flight. Also, make sure you draw the curtains for a good few hours of darkness, cosiness, pin-drop silence and much-needed peace.
Treat your taste buds
A good holiday and great food are almost synonymous with each other. Whether you are staying in watching TV, reading a book or surfing the internet, the one thing that makes all these activities even more enjoyable is a generous serving of scrumptious food. Order in some room service and treat yourself to delicious pastries and mouth-watering main courses from Waterside, our all-day dining restaurant, or Umami – our exotic Indian eatery.
Go wild on free Wi-Fi
There is so much you can do with the two magical words – free Wi-Fi! Find a cosy corner in your room and sit back with a mobile, tab or even a laptop as your surf the Internet. From celebrity gossip to funny memes, there is a plethora of information out there you can entertain yourself with. If social networking sites is not your thing, then just log into Netflix and catch up on your favourite shows!
Though there are a lot of things you can do in a hotel – like hitting the swimming pool or rejuvenating your senses at the spa – the best thing you can do is laze around in your room and have some quality me-time. Whether you have checked-in alone or with a bunch or friends, hotel rooms are the perfect getaway with the added benefit of luxury and round-the-clock room service.
